Wrinkle and aging prevention? Discover the ‘Youth molecule’
Certainly, you have become aware, in advertising, blogs, magazines, and other media, of the increasing use of Antioxidants in the cosmetic industry to prevent aging. If you are curious as to why they are used, come and read more! In fact, Antioxidants are quite widespread in the prevention of skin aging and its signs, like wrinkles, expression lines, loss of elasticity, and sagging.
This is due to the current conclusion that “we age because we oxidise”, i.e., it is due to the accumulation of oxidising substances (free radicals) that react with the body’s structures, affecting its integrity, that the signs of aging appear. This happens to the skin when collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid fibres are degraded by oxidising substances, leading to loss of firmness, elasticity and skin density. Precisely the attributes that we want to preserve with the advancing age!
Although we cannot prevent accumulation of oxidising substances throughout our lives, due to smoke, pollution, food, among others, leading to premature aging, we can attenuate the negative effects of these substances through antioxidant substances. It has been scientifically proven that the topical application of antioxidants fights free radicals and delays skin aging.
Currently, Resveratrol is the most promising antioxidant; it has been called the ‘youth molecule’. It is extracted from grapes and has a decongestant and regenerative action.
Resveratrol prevents the formation of oxygen free radicals, the most aggressive oxidising substances for the skin, involved in the acceleration of skin aging.
Other potent antioxidants include Proanthocyanidins, polyphenols that, in addition to their potent antioxidant action, maintain the functional characteristics of the structures of your skin, preserving its integrity, elasticity and skin tone.
If you check the ingredients present in DC Dermoteca Cosmetics product line you will see that all our products have Resveratrol, the ‘youth molecule’ and other polyphenols. Resveratrol is a fundamental constituent of grapes and wine, and has been used, since ancient times, for the maintenance of a youthful skin and in the fight against aging.
