Why Botanicals are Better than Botox by Solvaderm?

Botox. Is there a woman left alive who hasn’t considered it at some point? As forty becomes the new thirty, fifty becomes the new forty and stars who have been in the firmament for more than a few decades appear to be ageing backwards, more people are turning to cosmetic treatments to help keep that youthful wrinkle free look. But what if there was another way to achieve this? One that didn’t involve painful injections of toxins into your face. Nutraceuticals have become the new watchword, not only in health, but in cosmetics and skincare as more people are looking for a healthy alternative to retaining youthful skin. Solvaderm has the low down on the nature’s best ingredients to keep your skin smooth and wrinkle free.

Botox is derived from the natural bacteria, botulinum toxin, a powerful and lethal neurotoxin. While its cosmetic derivative is carefully produced and administered, it is its neurotoxic effect of paralysing muscles that gives it the mechanism of action of reducing the appearance of wrinkles. There are other, less toxic chemicals found in nature that can deliver similar results. These include the amino acids monomers, peptides, which are short chains or groups of amino acids that bind together to create different reactions. The length of these chains vary and are classified by the name, for example, dipeptides, meaning two chains, hexapeptides, meaning five chains or polypeptides, meaning many chains, are some of the classes of peptides that exist. Within these classes are different types of peptides that have been isolated and identified as having specific properties. For example, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 which is a constituent ingredient of Solvaderm’s, Stemuderm, has the same mechanism of action as botulinum toxin and works to inhibit muscle contractions. This anti ageing treatment contains other peptides of varying lengths that work to inhibit muscle contractions.

Stem Cells
As well as peptides, Stemuderm contains a stem cell extract derived from the fruit of an apple tree in Switzerland. Known as Malus Domestica, these stem cells are derived from the UttwilerSp├Ątlauber apple which contains high concentrations of polyphenols, a micronutrient with anti-inflammatory properties which have been identified as helping degenerative health conditions. When placed in a solution containing the Malus Domestic stem cells, human skin cells were found to have a regenerative growth effect. Studies carried out have shown remarkable results with 100% of participants in one study showing a reduction in wrinkle depth after one month’s use.

With many cosmetic and skin-care companies developing and refining naturally derived ingredients with the potential to have anti ageing properties, more and more of us are turning away from traditional cosmetic treatments that can have potential side effects and downtime as a result. Nature has an abundance of chemicals that science has developed and learned from but instead of synthesizing and mimicking these, companies such as Solvaderm are going back to the source for inspiration to deliver safe skincare solutions with outstanding results.

The ABC's of Glowing Skin by Solvaderm

We all know that vitamins are good for you but how well do you know your A's, B's and C's when it comes to skincare? These vitamins are useful, not only in terms of their inclusion in creams and serums for topical application to the skin, but also as nutrients that work from the inside out. While there is a range of vitamins that are needed on a daily basis for optimum cellular function within the body, these three in particular provide skin with the nutrients required to keep it at its best. Here's Solvaderm's ABC's of vitamins for your skin:

A. Retinol
Vitamin A or retinol plays several important functions in the body depending on how it is converted. In one form it is necessary for good vision and its deficiency can cause night blindness and other problems related to the eyes. However, when converted to retinoic acid, it is required for the synthesis of keratin, the protein which is present in the epithelial or outer skin cells. Keratin protects the surface of the skin against all kinds of environmental stressors and is necessary for the turnover of skin cells, a process that is known as keratinization. It is also important for a healthy immune system and for stem cell formation. As a result, it has become increasingly prevalent in recent years as a topical anti-ageing treatment.

B. Biotin
There is a whole host of B vitamins, but when it comes to the skin, biotin or B7 is the most important. Biotin, also sometimes known as vitamin H, is a coenzyme necessary for the production of fatty acids and helps to metabolize amino acids and fats. What this means for hair, nails and especially the sensitive skin, is the role it plays in the formation of keratin, which is present in all three. From a cosmetic perspective, it is keratin gives healthy hair its glossy sheen, healthy nails their smooth surface and healthy skin its supple strength. Biotin can be taken as a supplement and also has a high bioavailability in peanuts and green leafy vegetables.

C. Ascorbic Acid
Don't let the name fool you, this acid is anything but harsh. Vitamin C is the one that the body doesn't store and needs daily replenishment of. Important for the overall functioning of the body's general health, it is enzymatic which means it is required for the synthesis of certain proteins in the body including collagen which gives  skin its elasticity. In the last decade with the increase in interest in the use of botanicals in face creams and serums, it has become a popular ingredient due to its antioxidant properties and ability to fight free radicals. Found in abundance in citrus fruits, there's a reason that glass of OJ in the morning is good for you.

While this is not an exhaustive list and the RDA of vitamins and minerals required for optimum health includes a great many more, Solvaderm recommends you learn your ABC's to be top of the class when it comes to skincare!

Curling your eyes
Eyes are very vital body parts and need to be handled with great care. Although makeup works in a great way to improve your looks, incorporating curling is very important because it helps make your eyes more awake and bigger.

Curling your eyes also helps in making your lashes straight and strong. Repeat this process a few times a week for effective results.

Wear colours that make your eyes pop

To ensure you perfectly match your eye shadow colours with your clothing, choose shades that best work out for you. Make sure you don’t exaggerate these shades because this might produce an unpleasant look on your face.  Having a friend around to give compliments and make correctional comments is always advisable before stepping outside with the shades.

Keep your eyebrows on point
Your eyebrows help in complimenting your complexion by bringing a balance to your facial features. You can shape your eyebrows from home or by visiting a salon for professional advice and care. At home, ensure you use natural ways that do not put the health of your eyes at risk whereas at the salon the attendants can investigate your eyebrows before recommending the appropriate shape to improve your eyebrows and make your eyes more attractive.
