What is intrinsic aging?
When you look at your family genetics, what do you see? Freckles? Dark circles around the eyes? That deep crease where the brow furrows? Do you have lines across your forehead? This is intrinsic aging. Aging that is passed down through family DNA and through genetics from our mothers, and their mothers, and so on.
This kind of aging is inevitable, but we can slow the process and take proactive strides toward fending off your genetic inheritance. With the guidance of a trusted and well-educated skincare professional, and use of advanced skincare that precisely targets your specific concerns. Incorporating cutting edge technology with the highest quality peptides, retinols, highly effective hydrators, and daily sun-protection, you’ll greatly decrease signs of genetic aging.
Peptides can be an integral part of an anti-aging routine. They help build collagen and boost elastin levels in the skin, and can help to lighten pigmentation (freckles or age spots). They can also act as neurotransmitter inhibitors, interrupting the nerve signals between the brain and facial muscles. This is beneficial in blocking the genetically predisposed muscle movements that cause and increase the depth of lines and wrinkles.
Retinols are a clinically-proven, anti-aging component. It’s a powerful exfoliator that reduces appearance of photo damage, refines skin, and aids in the production of new collagen, -reducing wrinkles and sagging skin.
Hydrators (specifically hyaluronic acid) have the ability to bond moisture to the skin, keeping it hydrated, plump, and flexible. This keeps wrinkles from forming, and allows the skin to maintain its youthful appearance.
Daily Sun Protection
Daily Sun Protection is the most effective (and greatest) anti-aging preventative measure you can take. UV exposure and our genetic sensitivity to it, has the biggest impact on the integrity of our skin (from the breakdown of collagen and elastin, to the overproduction of pigment (hyperpigmentation/freckles))
Intrinsic aging is unavoidable but when we incorporate the simple steps listed here – we can be proactive and decelerate the visible signs of aging. Knowledge is power – So, thank your genetics for the heads up!
