The female skin is thinner and more sensitive to the exposure to external environmental stress, than the one of men – additionally the impact of various metabolic changes (e.g hormones) on the skin is significantly higher for women. Not all of these stress factors do have an immediate effect, but in the future – therefore we should treat our skin very cautiously and care for it. The negative environmental stress factors are particularly:
• UV Radiation
• Particle Dust
• Mechanical Influences (e.g. shaving)
In order to support the healing process of this organ and to ensure that the skin remains healthy and is able fulfill its functions, it must be supported endogenous (internal) and exogenous (external). With exogenous support we understand skin care products, a good diet, healthy sports habits, the abstinence of noxious substances (nicotine, alcohol), enough sleep or a positive attitude of life.
Our skin has many functions, which have to be retained:
• Protection from mechanical impact and from UV rays
Sun-exposed areas of the face frequently develop tumours such as basal and squamous cell carcinomas, and malignant melanoma).
• Thermoregulatory properties
Vasodilatation in the heat for heat dissipation and vasoconstriction in the cold for heat retention
• Sensitivity functions
These are primarily heat, cold, and pressure receptors. Sensitivity functions are also important for psychological and social exchange purposes and immunological functions in terms of the antigen-antibody processes (e.g., vitamin D3 synthesis in relation to UV rays).
Therefore it is absolutely important that the skin remains healthy. With its broad variety of effects due to the implementation of diverse ingredients, V COSMETIC WOMAN offers comprehensive exogenous support in the form of a skin care product:
• Q10 for cell metabolism (rejuvenation of the skin)
• Hyaluronic acid for regeneration and water storage
• Zinc for healing (protection and structure)
• Vitamins E & C for redox/repair Functions of the Skin
• Sea salt to bind moisture
• Caffeine for improved blood circulation and preservation of elasticity
