Your skin is a miraculous living fabric. We often only see its aesthetic, but its three layers maintain our health and wellbeing in more ways than we probably imagine.
The epidermis is the outermost layer, known as the cuticle or protective layer and is made of tightly packed, scale-like cells that are continually being shed. An entirely new cuticle layer of skin forms every twenty-eight days, although this is believed to slow down with age.
The next layer is the dermis. It is also called the 'true skin' because most of the vital functions of the skin are performed there. It contains the glands that secrete perspiration and sebum (oil), the papilla (hair manufacturing plant), nerve fibers, blood vessels, lymph glands and sense receptors. The dermis has an elastic quality that is due to the protein connective tissues called elastin and collagen. These proteins give skin its strength as well as its flexibility.
Below the dermis is the third layer called the subcutaneous layer. It is made of a fatter tissue that gives the skin its smoothness and contour and serves as a shock absorber for the vital organs. In addition, this layer stores energy and helps to keep us warm.
Unbroken, the skin is our first line of defense against disease and bacterial invasion. It regulates body temperatures, sends neurological messages to the brain, detoxifies by excreting wastes from the body, respires (absorbs oxygen and releases carbon dioxide), absorbs nutrients, manufactures vitamin D and protects the body from ultraviolet damage from the sun.
Optimal skincare recognises that the skin is our largest vital organ and it requires care and attention to look and perform at its best. The skin takes in oxygen and expels carbon dioxide. In fact, the skin does up to five percent or more of all the “breathing” done by the body. It also functions similar to the kidneys, eliminating up to two pints of water and salts every day.
The reality is that the quality and health of our skin is a reflection of the topical skincare regime. Most skincare products on the market today offer nothing more than a "cosmetic cover-up." Simply covering up skin issues instead of addressing them, by using harmful ingredients that can suffocate the skin. Keeping oxygen out and trapping toxins in.
Throughout the course of our lives, our skin will change from the soft and delicate characteristics of baby skin to childhood's smooth, velvety texture and resilience. During the teenage years, the skin reacts to changes in our diets and hormones and continues to change through the twenties when our skin begins to finally mature. By our thirties, the skin begins drying and we notice signs of the first wrinkles. By forty, our skin is aging. As the skin ages, it characteristically becomes drier and loses its elasticity.
The skin's rejuvenating capacity slows down as we get older and the oxygen and nutrient supply reduces because of a decrease in blood circulation. Protective oil (sebum) production decreases. These changes take place in the dermal layer of the skin. Just how fast and to what extent this dermal layer changes depends on three things: our age, our genetics and lifestyle. On the surface of the skin, as the cells work their way from the dermal layer outward, the cells become thicker and denser and lose their ability to retain moisture. Lubrication decreases, which give mature, skin its dry appearance.
Hydration of the skin starts from within. Increasing the intake of pure and fresh water helps replenish the skin's lost moisture. Eight to ten glasses of water daily give the skin an edge in its fight against dehydration.
The body consists of about 70% water with some skin cells containing over 90% water. When cells lose water, they diminish in size and flatten out. Chronic cell dehydration appears as lines, wrinkles and lackluster skin. Good circulation and sufficient water lay the foundation for youthful looking skin. Proper circulation enables a normal cellular exchange of nutrients and wastes, so that the cells receive adequate nourishment and wastes are routinely eliminated. Without proper circulation, cell renewal and repair slow and toxins accumulate.
The age at which wrinkles start to appear is largely determined by genetics but has been proven that aging can be accelerated by overexposure to sunlight, pollutants, poor diet and low oxygen levels in the skin. Our skin tissue loses about 30% of its oxygen “capacity” by the age of 30 and close to 60% by age 40. As oxygen metabolism decreases, the cells cannot dispose of wastes, cannot fully utilize key molecules in the blood stream and free radical damage increases dramatically.
ASO activated oxygen, as formulated in the LYMA Active Mist and LYMA Priming Serum vastly improves both oxygenation and the circulation of essential skin nutrients. Dramatically improving skin health by promoting blood flow and enhancing moisture retention.
Skin normally renews itself every 28 days. However, if oxygen and nutrients are not available, the cell reproduction process is slowed down and the new skin cells are not as healthy. This results in premature aging, an increase in fine lines, wrinkles and a lack of healthy skin tone and texture. As we age, the circulation in our capillaries deteriorates and results in a lack of oxygen and other nutrients reaching our skin cells. This leads to dehydration of the skin. ASO plays a significant role in replenishing vital oxygen to the skin cells, as well as playing a significant role in helping to heal burns and wounds.
The skin is unable to absorb oxygen from water presented in the form of H20. This is why LYMA formulates with ASO, which presents oxygen in the form of 04, which delivers oxygen levels 350.000 PPM, the highest level of oxygen scientifically possible. ASO’s chemical structure ensures a very fast penetration into the skin without the need for any ‘carrier’ technologies, which are sometimes formed from unnatural or harmful molecules. The bioavailable oxygen improves the health of the skin, assisting in the production of collagen and elastin.
LYMA Priming Serum uses WellmuneTM, a patented, peer-reviewed beta glucan, which aren’t usually water soluble, but LYMA’s proprietary process ensures it’s both 100% water soluble and is able to penetrate the skin through "structured" water molecules around them.
Beta glucans are immune response modifiers, complex polysaccharides derived from a yeast cell wall. Our bodies have developed an immune response to yeast by recognising parts of that molecule as being foreign material and mounting an immune response to it. Not all immune responses are bad. This is a good immune response because what exposure to Wellmune is essentially doing, is providing a transient stimulus that induces your epidermis to repair itself. These beta glucan molecules are far less small and pre-digested by an enzymatic process therefore they penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin where they can trigger the "healing" responses on the specialized immune cells i.e. dendritic cells.
LYMA’s infrared laser speeds up the skin rejuvenation process by enhancing the energy production within the cells which makes the collagen and elastin synthesis and the detoxification processes.
This is the core technology behind the regeneration of skin using the LYMA Active Mist (04), LYMA Priming Serum (04 + Wellmune™) and LYMA Laser (500mW Nr IR laser and 40nw blue LED) together. This is a world first. This changes everything.
“The LYMA Laser is one of the most exciting and innovative products to have been developed for the purpose of skin rejuvenation.
The LYMA Laser captures the efficacy of a laser-based light therapy previously only available in the clinic setting and safely delivers it into the hands of the consumer for use at home”.
