Skin Aging

Whether you're 35 and just beginning to see the first signs of aging or 55 with skin that isn't exactly keeping your birthday a secret, seeking ways to reduce wrinkles is probably on your agenda.
At the same time, experts say, many of us are losing the wrinkle battle, watching helplessly as the glow of youth goes on the dimmer switch.

As we age, inherited patterns for aging generally begin to show. Because cellular regeneration is slowing down, fine lines and wrinkles may begin to appear. Skin blemishes and some loss of hair are not uncommon. Fat loss may begin, resulting in excess skin that arranges itself in folds and sags. Initial signs are the horizontal lines seen crossing the forehead and some droopiness of the eyelids. Loss of fat in the cheeks causes the formation of puffy little jowls on either side of the chin. Lips may thin.
Ultraviolet light wrinkles, dries, and burns the skin, as well as increasing the odds you'll develop skin cancer. But the sun is not your only enemy. Cigarette smoke and alcohol greatly accelerate the skin aging process.
Topical lotions that include ingredients such as peptides, vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids and retinoids help increase cell turnover and stimulate collagen, the main building block of the skin that keeps it firm and elastic.

After years of research, we at Life Science Investments we do not agree that skin must deteriorate due to age. We insist that aging skin is a disease that we can do something about.
Our research, which utilizes all-natural formulas, led to a better understanding of the mechanism of the formation of wrinkles and how to fight them more efficiently in the recent years.
The peptides (amino acid polymers) are one of the latest advances in this field. They are composed of small molecules that can therefore pass through the skin barrier. They have the same activity as proteins and collagen or elastin that are usually absorbed with difficulty through the skin. Therefore, the peptides are increasingly used in dermo-cosmetic products and more particularly in the treatment of wrinkles and aging skin.
