The December 2011 issue of Allure Magazine highlights innovative skin care technologies that are proving effective in the battle against skin aging: “We’re seeing more evidence-backed skin-care formulations and far less hype in a jar” says dermatologist, Hema Sundaram. These formulations include those, like Apriori Beauty’s Cellular Age Advantage, that seek to take a proactive, preventative approach to skin care by addressing the process of skin aging, not just the symptoms.
A key focus is on enhancing cell longevity with ingredients that stimulate proteins called Sirtuins. Research has shown that boosting sirtuins can increase lifespan by helping prevent gene mutation and cell degeneration. According to Zoe Draelos, clinical associate professor or dermatology at Wake Forest University,
“Sirtuins maintain the accuracy of the genetic code, ensuring that everything, skin included, functions properly.”
What does this mean for your skin? Ingredients that boost sirtuins may be applied topically and ingested to help increase cellular longevity and protect against DNA damage. The best studied of these ingredients is Resveratrol, a potent antioxidant found naturally in the skin and seeds of purple grapes; Resveratrol has been shown to trigger sirtuins and significantly prolong the lifespan of mice.
Apriori Beauty’s Cellular Age Advantage delivers Resveratrol internally through Lifeoxylin and LifeoxyLEAN, and topically through the Celloxylin and Nothing To Hide lines. As an essential component of the NutrientReservoir, Resveratrol can help protect skin cells, slow the aging effects of time, and leave your skin looking healthy and radiant.
