Lipid restore - beauty's best-kept secret to anti-aging
Dermatologists agree that our ability to produce more collagen than our bodies consume reduces from the age of 20 at approximately 1% per year. The result? Wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, and sagging, crepey skin. Collagen is responsible for keeping our skin firm, elastic, and youthful, whereas lipids - or fat cells - keep skin smooth, plump, and pores under control. Thanks to advances in science, we can restore essential dermal lipids lost during the aging process.
Lipids are an essential macronutrient, but their role in keeping skin youthful is worth knowing too. They are the skin's natural fats whose purpose is to keep nutrients within the dermis and the unwelcome free radicals from the sun, out. They also help with the reduction of moisture loss, and, as the body is 60 percent water, we definitely want to hold onto that. The three main lipids: cholesterol, ceramides and fatty acids deplete with aging, with dry sagging skin and fine lines and accelerated aging being visible signs that our fat cells are in decline.
Studies show that the most effective topical skincare products have a lipid composition close to our own skin of 1:2:1 ratio of ceramides, natural cholesterol, and fatty acids. No wonder they're so popular in skincare. Topical creams containing lipids enter two layers of the skin: the epidermis and dermis and get to work to restore lost lipids. The result? Improved skin texture, hydration, radiance, and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
