What Anti-Ageing Technology?

 What is ageing? What causes ageing? How is Restore going to reduce the signs of ageing? These are common questions which I am often asked, so if you've been asking the same questions, this post is for you.

What is ageing?
Ageing is the process of becoming old, which is to say, the gradual degradation of our bodies. Can we stop it? No. Can we slow it down? With proper diet and skin care, we can stop it happening so fast; or rather slow it down to it's natural rate, to before environmental damage. People in different countries from around the world show signs of ageing at different rates, simply because of their diet and the amount of UV light they are exposed to. 

What causes ageing?
For those of you that don't read French, here's my explanation... 

What mainly causes skin to age is a lack of moisture and the UV rays - either from the sun or from UV lights and tanning beds. Then, as you grow older, the amount of collagen and elastin which the skin naturally produces, decreases (from around the age of 25) and when you hit about 35, production stops completely - naturally. 
Lack of moisture (both from the environment and not drinking enough water) causes the skin cells to shrink and shrivel, UV rays break down the skin cells (this is called oxidising, just like metal rusting), which then cause free radicals. Free radicals are which can end up causing cancer in some cases - skin cancer or if the free radicals get into the blood, they can end up anywhere and cause problems all over the body. Antioxidants do just that - they stop the skin cells from oxidising and neutralise free radicals (when present in the skin) and antioxidants in our food do the same for our blood etc. 
Lack of water and the breaking down of skin cells due to UV and environmental damage is what causes visible signs of ageing, namely wrinkles and pigmentation. 
Collagen keeps the skin looking plump, and elastin keeps the shape of the skin. UV ray damage can cause the collagen and elastin to break down earlier than 35 though.

How does Restore work?
NEW Restore is formulated with antioxidant-rich Sauvignon Blanc Concentrate, to rewind the visible signs of skin ageing: Diminishing the appearance of pigmentation, smoothing the appearance of wrinkles and enhancing skin radiance for a more beautiful, youthful-looking complexion. 
Restore is developed by the Nutrimetics Beauty Lab for all people concerned with the signs of ageing – wrinkles, pigmentation and dullness. The key active complex is Sauvignon Blanc Concentrate which is made up of three ingredients:
Grape Seed Extract: Antioxidant-rich to protect the skin from premature ageing.
Vitamin C Concentrate: Proven to boost Collagen production and reduce the formation of Melanin
Peptides: Enhance the skin’s firmness, so the complexion looks smoother and more supple.
Peptides – are made up of amino acids – the building structures from which skin proteins are made. Functions of peptides in skincare can include stimulating collagen, stimulating capillary formation and repair, enhancing natural antioxidant defense mechanisms and promoting connective tissue production.
Peptides have been found to reduce wrinkles by up to 50%, and produced faster and similar results than retinol (although not better) over a shorter period of time.
