Our skin plays a vital roll in our lives and if you think about what are skin actually does for us you will realize that we aren’t treating are skin the way it should be.
Our skin is a major sensory organ alerting us to heat, cold, pain and pressure – so it’s well worth treating it with care. It’s also a thermal regulator, a protector from UV rays, infection, bacteria and moisture loss. It creates Vitamin D essential for bone formation and looks after the body’s overall health by transporting essential oils and medicines into the system and eliminating waste from the body through sweat.
so there are three things you can feed your skin that will stop break outs and make your skin glow.
- cell communicating ingredients
- skin-repairing ingredients.
OK so that sounds fairly easy and it is i’ll go though each step and explain what is all involved in each step, so lets begin
Antioxidants are fundamental in reducing free-radical damage and environmental stress on our bodies. Antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage, the common pathway for cancer, aging, and a variety of diseases. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. There main danger is what they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants.
free radical damage can use up the resources of our skin and interrupt it’s ability to protect from exposure from the elements.
one way to get antioxidants is through our food by eating brightly colored fruits and vegetables.We should be eating up to seven serves of fruit and veggies a day, but more than 70% of us don’t eat that much. An antioxidant superfood like Miessence BerryRadical, containing the antioxidant power of eight serves of fruit and vegetables in one teaspoon, is an ideal way begin your new skin care regime. Antioxidants can also be topically applied to the skin. Don’t be fooled by claims of new miracle ingredients in cosmetics – a combination of natural ingredients with proven antioxidant abilities such as aloe vera, olive juice extract, found in the Miessence moisturiser range, work better together to benefit the skin.
Cell-communicating ingredients is a new research area that shows promising results. According to researchers, cell-communicating ingredients have the ability to tell skin cells to act by either direct communication with the cell or by blocking messages from substances that damage cells. Miessence products contain a number of ingredients that are considered to have cell- communicating properties such as Vitamin A rich Carrot Seed CO2 extract, sunflower oil with its high levels of linolenic acid and lecithin, a natural plant phosolipid from non-GMO soy bean oil.
The third and final step for great skin is using what’s known as skin-repairing ingredients. They work alongside antioxidants to bolster the skin’s natural phosolipids – the substance which surrounds skin cells which lay between each skin layer to keep them soft and supple. In addition to the beneficial antioxidant and cell-communicating ingredients found in Miessence skin care products, additional ingredients such as aloe vera, jojoba and rosehip also provide a number of benefits that can help overall skin health. Many cosmetic companies try to isolate beneficial ingredients by processing natural ingredients with chemicals, resulting in petrochemicals, silicone, formaldehyde donating ingredients, nitrosamine contaminants and parabens lurking in many popular preparations. At Miessence, we believe that using natural ingredients, in the way intended by nature, is the very best way to source its nutrient goodness. Our certified organic products use ingredients that are sourced by cold-pressing and distillation – not chemical reaction. They are safe, edible and food grade. Our skin deserves nothing less.
