Skin, the pathway to a youthful appearance

Written by MICANS, MS, PharmB, Philip A

Healthy, youthful skin is perhaps the most evocative antiaging issue and the one most related to what the general public perceives as “antiaging.” It’s obvious that the skin is one of the first places that we evaluate a person’s age, with fine lines, brown spots, tough leathery, discoloured and wrinkled skin all associated as signs of advanced age or perhaps a “rough” life.

Skin also tells us about a person’s health. Rashes and texture, (such as psoriasis, acne and eczema) are clues to allergies and toxins; greyness is a clue to poor circulation and puffiness and sagging are clues to inflammation, oxidation and glycosylation processes at work.

We all know that skin condition can be dependent on dietary nutrition, sleep, cleanliness and “clean living” (e.g. avoiding pollutants and smoking etc), but what else can be used in the antiaging armoury to ensure that skin looks as good as possible for as long as possible?

IAS has designed to skin pack as a front line defence, a cutting edge example of some of the very best evidence based materials available today.

Cell Energy; Professor Ionescu’s skin fixer
Dr. John Ionescu is one of Germany’s leading dermatologists, from his 200 bed clinic near Munich he has worked with some of the worst skin cases and cured a great many people from many skin ailments.

His clinically tested and evidence based products have lead to the development of Cell Energy®. This cream has an outstanding restorative effect on skin, it is designed to calm irritated skin and eliminate impurities such as oily acne skin, psoriasis, eczema and also aid in the reduction of inflammation.

Cell Energy is the result of 10-years of research to encourage cell renewal by encouraging the epidermis (the top layer of skin) to softly biologically peel away leaving new, younger skin cells visible. Cell Energy is able to promote improved circulation and increase ATP production, thereby enhancing the skin’s local repair processes into action.

The end result is that after several weeks of regular use that Cell Energy is able to remove impurities, speed wound healing, reduce inflammation (and prevent itching), leaving a natural unblemished skin condition.

Cell Energy is free of preservatives, colors and fragrances and therefore suitable for persons of a hyposensitive nature.

Cell Energy should be applied in the morning onto clean, dry skin. It is suitable for use on the face, neck and hands.

NeySkin CoQ10; the elite moisturizer
NeySkin® is another class leading product from Germany. NeySkin contains a number of novel ingredients including RNAs from the skin (ribonucleic acids of bovine origin), in addition to vitamin A, E and Coenzyme Q10.

As RNA’s contain the building blocks of DNA (and are believed to help message the signaling switches of DNA), it therefore follows that the skin RNA’s contained in NeySkin help to improve DNA condition in the applied skin. Regular use thereby enhances all repair functions, regressing the biological age of the treated skin.

The patented formula in NeySkin provides not only an excellent moisturizer effect, but it also enhances blood and lymph circulation and increases natural collagen and elastic production too. This process improves nutritional delivery to the skin and facilitates the removal of metabolic wastes more efficiently.

NeySkin enhances the skin’s appearance and produces a taught, smooth and radiant complexion.

NeySkin should be applied in the evening by rubbing it into the face and neck onto clean, dry skin.

Hy-Col; keeping skin taught and plump
Hy-Col™ contains Bio-Cell purified type-II collagen (of avian origin), what makes it unique is it the first time that collagen has been shown to be able to be absorbed in oral form. In fact Hy-Col contains collagen, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate; this is a triple bonus for skin as each of these ingredients brings important benefits.

Hyaluronic acid (HA)
HA can hold up to 3000 times its weight in water and therefore is an excellent retainer of water in the skin. In fact the role of HA is to assist in wound healing and to stimulate DNA synthesis and cell division, all part of healthy skin processes.

HA helps the skin to retain its youthful looks, making the skin appear plumped and healthy.

Chondroitin sulphate (CS)
CS is an integral part of connective tissue in skin and it can also inhibit enzymes that are part of skin aging. CS aids the skin to retain its firmness and is an aid to prevent the development of sagging.

Collagen is a vital part of the skin to enable elasticity to be maintained and collagen injections are a well known part of aesthetic medicine. When applied they fill out the skin; reducing drooping and making the skin appear much younger.

Professor of dermatology Nelson Novick, M.D. stated about the ingredients in Hy-Col; “this dietary supplement provides the only natural and bioavailable source of these 3 elements needed to maintain skin moisture and elasticity. This complex and concentrated matrix was formerly only available to cosmetic surgeons as injectable drugs and it not only halts the appearance of skin aging, but also potentially reverses the skin aging process altogether.”

In this synergistic program, 250 mg to 500 mg of Hy-Col should be taken 2 or 3 times daily.

The IAS skin pack is not just a short term solution to healthy vibrant skin; it is a long term solution for life-long tissue health.

There is no doubt that looking good goes a long way to feeling good, try our synergistic skin pack today and see the difference it makes for you in just a couple of months.
