Skin forms a flexible, living barrier over our bodies. It protects our inner organs, keeps us cool, provides a sense of touch and helps make vitamin D. Facial skin is more sensitive and ages more rapidly than other areas, because it is more exposed to sunlight, pollutants, free radicals and allergens. It also reflects poor nutritional status and sleep deprivation. Direct application of antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C and E), moisturizers (e.g. plant oils, hyaluronan) and micronutrients (e.g. vitamin A, ceramides) to facial skin can aid in preventing damage and promote the skin’s own repair processes. Newer ingredients like Brightening Drone™ technology are designed to target nutrients to the deeper cell layers of the skin.
