The idea of a healthy tan from sunbathing on holiday sounds magnificent and brings to mind relaxation, tropical smells, and sun kissed skin. But what’s really happening when you tan?
Let’s start by saying there’s no such thing as a healthy tan. A tan occurs when sun exposure causes the production of melanin in the skin’s outermost layer. This is your body’s way of protecting itself from that giant radioactive ball in the sky, mainly UVA rays (those responsible for accelerated aging) and UVB rays (which cause sunburn).
Although many young adults choose immediate satisfaction of perceived beauty over the long-term effects of sun damage, researchers believe that those same people would think twice about skipping the sunscreen if they realized that damaging effects mean more than a threat of cancer. Repeated sun exposure can cause other undesired skin conditions, which may not surface immediately. Sun damage is one of the many causes of hyperpigmentation, a broad term that refers to a skin condition in which the skin is discolored or darkened, caused by cells producing more pigment to protect themselves. Freckles, age spots, moles and other dark spots can also be caused by sun exposure. Sun damage is responsible for about 80% of premature facial skin aging. As this process is repeated with daily UVA exposure, skin forms wrinkles, and the depleted collagen results in leathery skin. The best way to combat photoaging is through prevention, so go put your sunscreen on! But, what can you do now?
Target the cellular level
When you start at the cellular level, surface concerns like uneven skin tone, discoloration, and fine lines become non-issues as your skin is restored from the deepest layers up. With results being seen in as little as 3-4 weeks as skin renews itself through cellular turnover, pushing new cells to the surface. Leading the army of skin-supporting ingredients in RESCUESKIN’s formula is adult stem cell derivative MDFc19. Why stem cells? They’re the body’s “rescue” cells. They have the preventive ability to build a healthy skin foundation and the regenerative power to fix damage already done, all the way down to the DNA.
Skin problems are expressions of cellular trauma from the environment, sun exposure, diet, genetics, and aging. MDFc19 targets cells in the deepest layer of skin to build dermal fibroblast, stimulate collagen production, and help to naturally regenerate healthier, stronger skin. RESCUESKIN is fortified with proven antioxidants to fight free radicals, support cell development, and stimulate increased renewal. By treating problems below the surface, rather than just on it, your skin can actually begin to self-correct from the inside out.
