NATURAL SKIN CARE
As we begin developing in the womb, our bodies begin to produce elastin, which will continue to develop in early childhood.
Following childhood, our bodies produce less and less new elastin, and eventually, the elastin begins to break down considerably as we age. Over the course of a typical lifetime, up to 10 percent of the total elastin in our bodies is lost, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.
While this occurs, the body also slows the production of supporting extracellular matrix proteins like collagen, laminin and keratin. This insufficiency causes the skin to experience more wrinkles, laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet and facial creases.
Another disadvantage to lowered counts of these proteins involves the skin’s damage control. Due to the reduced levels of collagen, laminin, keratin and elastin, skin becomes more susceptible to damage and requires more time to heal properly.
If a new source of elastin could be introduced to the skin, wrinkles and signs of aging could be reversed, leaving skin soft, smooth and young looking! Thanks to DermaLastyl-β™’s active ingredient Elastatropin™, skin can renew itself with minimal effort and investment.
