Flawless skin has been the holy grail of beauty since time eternal. Our endeavours to keep it youthful, scar, stretch-mark and wrinkle free have seen some of us undergoing radically invasive and unhealthy treatments on our quests for perfection. It doesn’t need to be that way when we understand the science behind it. Let’s get under the skin.
The skin is more than just a body bag for our internal bones and organs. In fact, it is the body’s largest organ and has three main functions. First, its seven layers protect our insides from germs and the elements. Second, it regulates our body temperature. Third, it provides us with the vehicle for sensations related to touch.
More than that, it can also be considered a filtering and detox organ. Through its pores, it can absorb what’s applied to it and secrete the not so good stuff out. What we apply to our skin can therefore also affect our internal health and wellbeing. To protect itself, the skin produces oils, sometimes too little and sometimes too much which is when we typically reach for skincare products.
Always remember the rule of 3’s when it comes to great skin: 30% what you eat. 30% what you apply. 30% what you do. And 10% how you do it, with gentle consistency.
Research shows that skincare products have at least 15 ingredients on average with some containing hundreds of chemicals in them. When applied regularly, the skin absorbs them into the bloodstream, and this wreaks havoc in the body. Different chemicals have different effects. The most widely known is Paraben, a type of chemical preservative used in many beauty products. Research suggests that the skin considers Parabens to be like oestrogen. Too much of it comprises hormone functioning. The regular use of beauty products containing Parabens has been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues.
You have the power to reduce the risk and effects of these chemicals by choosing better products. And, a bit like the food we eat, the more natural and less processed the better.
Consider the 100% pure and all natural Cellnutrition Quinton Dermo Spray. It is uniquely harvested from the sea and contains 78 bioavailable minerals and trace elements required for healthy skin at a cellular level. The action of spraying this on the skin, enables them to be absorbed into the skin cells through the process of osmosis. These vegan-friendly natural minerals reduce water loss to keep your skin hydrated, healthy and younger looking…at a cellular level.
There are no miracle creams and cures. We therefore recommend that you focus instead on re-establishing balance and harmony by consistently providing a cellular foundation for the correct formation of the skin’s collagen matrix. The hydro mineral homeostasis of the skin should always be kept constant, the natural way.
Whilst the Dermo spray is perfect to naturally support and optimise the health of your skin cells from the outside, what we consume also affects the skin.
Consuming the correct amounts of the ocean’s healing waters have also proven to decrease production of interleukin, proteins that are important in stimulating immune responses, such as inflammation. Spraying it on and consuming just the right amount reduces skin inflammation significantly improves the condition of skin. This can be particularly beneficial for eczema and dermatitis.
