As South Africans living in a harsh climate, very few of us are completely immune to some form of skin damage. Whether this be age spots, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles or sagging skin, our skins bear the brunt of ageing and environmental factors around us. Many of us resign ourselves to the fact that this is just how it should be and that it is the natural progression of life. But did you know that skin damage can in fact be treated and, in a certain sense, even reversed? ZO® Skin Health rangeof products comes to the rescue and embraces this challenge.
Causes of skin damage
Once we understand that our skin loses its ability to regenerate and heal over time, as well as what the causes of skin damage are, taking steps to eliminate or limit such causes becomes much easier for a healthylooking skin. Smoking, excessive sun exposure, unhealthy eating habits and too much alcohol all contribute to skin damage and premature ageing, as does stress, too much sugar and salt and using chemicals on the skin. By avoiding these elements, you can go a long way in ensuring that your skin remains healthy.
Important elements towards regenerated skin
In addition, knowing the important elements of a healthy skin and how to nurture them, as ZO® Skin Health does, can also contribute to treating and preventing further skin damage. Skin care products that contain DNA repair enzymes work wonders in repairing skin damage. These products contain active ingredients which all work at the cellular level to repair free radical damage. This in turn makes the cells stronger and more resistant to future damage. The stimulation of collagen in the skin is another element that we need to think about when considering skin damage treatment and prevention. Collagen levels in your skin help it to look smoother and firmer ans it also helps with skin renewal and repair. Other factors that are important in treating ageing and damaged skin are restoring the skin barrier and evening skin tone. The skin barrier prevents essential water and electrolytes from evaporating from the skin and protects against harmful micro-organisms entering the skin.
Ossential Daily Power Defense
One of ZO® Skin Health’s signature products targets these very elements to repair and prevent skin damage. Daily Power Defense uses DNA repair enzymes to enhance your skin’s ability to recover and regenerate. These special enzymes attach directly to your own DNA molecules and repair oxidative damage caused by UV exposure. This cream contains all the ingredients that address the key elements of skin repair-including epidermal renewal, stimulation of collagen, DNA repair, restoration of the skin barrier and evening of skin tone.
