Let’s learn a bit about skin and how Luminesce can help fight aging! There are three key factors that cause us to age.
1. Skin Aging
When skin begins to age, there’s no hiding it! Whenever we look in the mirror, the tell tale signs of our advancing age stares us right back in the face!
- Takes decades to become visible
- Irregular skin texture
- Discoloration and irregular pigmentation
- Loss of tone and elasticity
- Wrinkles and sagging
One of the key factors in our skin aging, is Oxidation. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between environmental free radicals and your skin’s antioxidant defenses. The visible signs of aging can be impacted by oxidative stress and overall wellness.
Elevated levels of sugar molecules in your body bind to the amino acids in collagen and elastin, producing Advanced Glycation End Products (A.G.E.s). This process is further stimulated by UV light and tanning.
UV light exposure may be responsible for up to 80% of visible aging!
So what can YOU do to prevent and reverse these common aging skin problems?
Luminesce was created to address all of these environmental factors!
The Science Behind Luminesce Skincare
Created by Dr. Nathan Newman, the Luminesce skincare line features APT-200, an advanced polypeptide technology with more than 200 polypeptides that spark a “youth message” to help maintain the appearance of softer, smoother, younger skin. This is a novel approach to skin care. These polypeptides are exclusive to Jeunesse Global’s Luminesce & NV brands.
What Are Polypeptides?
Polypeptides are chains of amino acids, essential to cells.
- Stem cells produce many factors made from amino acids.
- Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins.
- Amino acids combine to make polypeptides.
- Polypeptides combine to make proteins.
