Recently I have been studying facial rejuvenation.
In this article, posed the question – is it really possible to completely revitalize our skin from topical ingredients?
Because there is one other important element that impacts the health of our skin, and that is skin rejuvenation.
What is Skin Rejuvenation
Our skin is an intelligent, inter-cellular communication system, a constant beehive of activity.
The problem is unlike our body; our skin lacks one CRUCIAL component its own independent blood supply.
Blood vessels don’t reach the surface of the skin, which is why when we graze our skin doesn’t draw any blood.
Instead our blood vessels are buried deep within the dermis, they never reach our skins surface the epidermis.
You can find out more about the anatomy of the skin, by following this link.
So what does this lack of blood supply really mean, in terms of skin health?
Instead of vital oxygen and nutrients being received in our skin by blood transport, they are diffused up into the epidermis, from buried blood vessels.
Sadly this is not a very efficient process, meaning our epidermis goes without the all-important oxygen and nutrients and unfortunately things don’t get much better with age.
Clinical studies show a 30% decline in blood supply, meaning less nutrition is going to get to our skin.
THE NAKED TRUTH
So is skin rejuvenation possible from a skin cream?
Well the bottom line is yes and no, what goes on does go in, but because less blood flow means less nutrition is available to our skin.
So in order for our skin tissues to be truly healthy, it needs a constant supply of blood; that coupled with specific ingredients that can deliver nourishment through the epidermis to the dermis.
Each of our cells are protected by a phospholipid bilayer, this bilayer is the major component that makes up our cell membrane; it acts as a tiny fortress, only allowing certain molecules to pass through the cellular wall.
To get around this, the Naked Chemist products utilises unique encapsulation technology for many of the ingredients. A liposome called phosphatidylcholine naturally enhances penetration into the cell wall.
This technique, helps to ensure that the all important nutrients are delivered deep into the dermis, where they are taken up by the blood vessels and delivered directly to the skin.
Helping to create healthy, youthful skin for now and many years to come.
