We all know the how important oxygen is for the body to function. It is our primary source of energy, eliminating harmful free radicals, neutralising toxins and enhancing the body’s absorption of essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals, proteins and amino acids. Oxygen also has many benefits specifically for the skin. It removes skin aging free radicals, has an anti-inflammatory effect that reduces swelling, which is especially effective for sensitive skin and enhances the healing process. Oxygen is also antibacterial, adding the benefit of clearer skin.
Why does our skin need more oxygen than from the air around us?
Today, our environment has many more pollutants present and these external aggressors in turn affect our skin’s overall health. Free radicals from these pollutants penetrate the skin, causing our cells to become unstable (lacking an electron) leading to the spreading of free radical damage and skin aging. Our lifestyle choices (eg, smoking, drinking and caffeine) can also affect the condition of the skin and the way to promote healing and the elimination of toxins is through skin oxygenation.
How do you induce skin oxygenation?
Oxygen facials are a fantastic way to see the benefits of oxygen on the skin, but what do you do in between treatments, especially if you are unable to have facials as regularly as necessary? Topical application of Dry Extract of Live Yeast Cells (Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae Extract) can also oxygenate the skin, meaning you can continue having the benefits of oxygenation on a daily basis at home.
Exel Hydro-Destressant Gel Cream is formulated with Dry Extract of Live Yeast Cells which boosts “Oxygen Uptake”. This cosmetic property promotes oxygenation, cellular respiration as well as creating a metabolic process within the cells to stimulate collagen production. This extract is produced by Exel Biocosmetica from grown live yeast cells. The biological active components consist of peptides and glycoside fractions stemming from the proteolytic extraction of live yeast cells stimulated under the correct scientific conditions.
Dry Extract of Live Yeast Cells is comprised of a complex mixture of proteins, sugars and amino acids. It is also an excellent humectant that conditions and moisturises the skin. It fights laxity and prevents premature aging while energising the epidermis. Superoxide dismutase is present in this extract. This enzyme is naturally found in all living cells to overpower the damaging reactions of superoxide, the most common free radical in the body.
Another skin benefit of Live Yeast Cell Extract is its ability to reduce and prevent hyper-pigmentation by blocking melanin biosynthesis.
Exel Hydro-Destressant Gel Cream is also formulated with:
Vitamin E Liposomes: A powerful antioxidant encapsulated in a liposome, a delivery system which allows the active ingredient to reach deeper layers of the skin, where they are able to and be dispersed to benefit targeted skin cells. Vitamin E repairs the cells and protects against further damage, while supplying the skin with essential moisture, preventing dryness.
Allantoin: An emollient that treats and prevents skin dryness. It improved skin roughness and flaking while protecting against irritation.
Beta-Carotene: An orange pigment found in plants, fruits and vegetables. Has antioxidant properties and can reduce the effects of sun damage by minimising pigmentation. Is a rich source of Vitamin A.
Jojoba-Oil: Extract from the seeds of the Jojoba plant. It is highly nourishing and repairs the skin’s barrier.
Panthenol: Converts to Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) when applied to the skin. Hydrates, moisturises and infuses water into the cells. Reduces skin irritation and stimulates healing.
This Light textured gel cream revitalises, refreshes and energizes the skin. It is easily absorbed and promotes oxygenation.
