1) The process of aging accelerates with time.
Starting at the age of 18, we lose 1% of collagen & elastin every year. By the time we reach our 30s, we lose 2% every year. By our 50s, that rate has doubled again to around 4%.
2) It's called the TIPPING POINT.
Much like the tip of an iceberg, our body and our skin ages every day but you may not notice these signs until they build up to a point when they suddenly become visible. It’s called the “tipping point”. What Samantha noticed that day was the result of a degradation process that started at the age of 18.
3) Your skin cream could be making you age faster.
The truth is that vast majority of skin creams don't deliver what they promise and in fact studies show that over time, they can actually age your skin faster. For example, products like Nivea contain nothing but petroleum by-products that make your skin feel temporarily hydrated because they coat the outside layer of your skin, but they do nothing to support the crucial collagen & elastin matrix that support healthy skin. Over time these synthetic ingredients harm healthy cell activity essentially degrading your skin faster. The sad fact is that most big brands are aware of this, but as long as consumers continue to purchase, there is no incentive to change the status quo.
"So then what are my option? How do I know who and what to trust?" - asks Samantha
So Why Do Some Women Seem To Age Faster Than Others?
Patrice Mercier is the head of Research & Development at Paris based cosmetics giant Sephora. He’s seen a lot in his 30 years in the beauty industry and says that it is probably the number 1 question customers ask.
"Why is it that some people will show the visible signs of aging faster than others? As you can imagine, the answer is not that simple. Genetics will account for about 20%. Lifestyle choices like smoking and diet account for another 50%. The other 30% depends on the products and regimen that you choose," explains Patrice
"The science of anti-aging has improved so much in the last 20 years but many consumers stick to what they know. For example, take mass market drugstore skin creams. Read through the ingredient and you'll find that they are basically petroleum derivatives. It simply coats the outer layer of your skin and makes you feel hydrated but it does nothing to actually address the root causes of skin damage and skin aging. In the meantime free radicals are wreaking havoc on your collagen matrix. So it shouldn't be a surprise then that after 10 - 20 years of using that sort of skin cream your skin shows the damage."
"Thankfully consumers are more knowledge now and the trend is changing for the better. The new and most effective approach is to protect the cells responsible for regeneration, to repair the damaged structures and to maintain optimum levels of self-repairing enzymes," adds Patrice
How Does Our Skin Age?
As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and skin thickness because the loss in collagen & elastin accelerates. Starting at the age of 18 the average person loses 1% of collagen & elastin every year. At the age of 30 we are losing about 1.5% of collagen & elastin each and every year. Skin becomes thin, papery and loses its youthful suppleness.
The majority of skin care products are designed to provide surface level hydration which stops at the epidermis layer (your outer most layer of skin). But cumulative damage to your collagen + elastin matrix in the dermis layer (your second and deeper layer of skin) is what actually causes wrinkles and sagging skin.
Our goal should be to achieve truly healthier skin, not just the illusion of tighter skin. Most people intuitively and intimately understand this need to treat the root causes of skin aging.
Here are 3 ways to address the root causes of aging.
First, we need to stop covering up problem areas with fillers and chemicals which leads to more damage over time. Our skin needs to be consistently cleansed of accumulated toxins and free radicals that accelerate skin damage. Third, we support the skin’s natural healing process by supplying the necessary nutrients and building blocks at the right time and in the right amounts.
OrganiBlock is designed to do exactly this by focusing on three key steps.
1) Heal and Repair Your Damaged Skin:
Supply the skin cells with essential nutrients. The nutrients found in OrganiBlock boost your skin’s natural waste recycling process called autophagy. It dramatically improves the skin’s internal immune function by increasing cellular mitochondrial activity. Basically, OrganiBlock helps your skin to heal and repair continuously while you sleep, work or play.
2) Regenerate Healthy Skin:
Studies have shown that oils selected for the OrganiBlock formulation stimulate collagen and elastin production at the cellular level. Collagen and elastin are the proteins that give your skin a youthful, healthy and radiant glow, and reduces dramatically in skin cells as you age. OrganiBlock’s powerful antioxidants give your cells the necessary hydration, decreases moisture loss from your skin with natural beeswax and organic plant waxes and nutrients to enable your skin cells keep producing more collagen and elastin, essentially helping to regenerate new and youthful skin.
3) Protect Your Beautiful Skin:
The final phase is to protect your beautiful skin. OrganiBlock is specifically formulated with powerful antioxidants, vitamins and active nutrients designed to protect against pollution and free radicals. OrganiBlock creates and maintains a protective wall that fights against the harmful effects of toxins, pollution, UV rays and sagging effects due to gravity. Think of it as a shield created by your own skin using powerful organic and natural ingredients.
