Your skin is most active at night. That’s when it goes to work repairing the damage that has occurred throughout the day. Every day your skin is exposed to environmental aggressors – like UV rays, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and pollution. These assaults on your skin do extreme damage on a cellular level, which can lead to DNA mutations. It’s important to wear sunscreen every day, but even then, you cannot protect your skin 100%. UV (sun) damage alone accounts for only half of the damage that occurs to the skin. Free radicals trigger an aging process, called glycation, in the skin. Glycation is a reaction where sugars attack proteins (like collagen and elastin) making skin more rigid and less elastic – ultimately causing aging. Glycation also decreases enzymatic activity, which skin needs to function properly. Free radical damage (glycation, DNA mutation, etc.) combined with UV damage can result in devastating skin abnormalities. That’s why it’s so important for skin to recover overnight, when it’s not exposed to the environment. Beauticontrol has the answer to nighttime repair and recovery with Regeneration Overnight. Regeneration Overnight Retinol Recovery Serum contains encapsulated retinol, a multi-functional vitamin that is known for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin clarity, increasing skin cell turnover and boosting skin’s natural production of collagen. This form of vitamin A is a potent antioxidant, which means that it protects skin from oxidative damage caused by ROS. The retinol used in this formula is encapsulated, protecting the stability and effectiveness of the molecule. Encapsulation also allows for sustained release, so skin receives a continuous delivery of retinol throughout the night. In addition to retinol, this formula contains a combination of eleven key ingredients to protect skin from free radicals, glycation and protein breakdown – in turn preventing further aging. We searched from the depths of the ocean to the Kalahari Desert to find the best ingredients to protect your skin… Purified watermelon extract from the Kalahari Desert that utilizes an evolved defense system to protect the melon’s DNA structure so it can survive in extreme desert conditions. Biotechnological silicon derivative combined with a brown algae extract – silicon is a natural component of the skin, and when combined with the brown algae extract it possesses anti-glycation properties. It also has a cyto-stimulating effect to enhance cellular regeneration and boost skin’s natural collagen-building mechanism. Multi-mineral skin energizer (comprised of zinc, copper and magnesium) that boosts cell metabolism so it can better produce structural proteins (like collagen and elastin) and enhances normal functions like cell turnover for increased skin vitality. Yeast mononucleotides combined with caffeine to protect skin cells from the effects of UVB radiation, like the formation of thymidine dimers, which cause genetic mutations and cell death (a.k.a. apoptosis). Biotechnologically produced micro-algae that visibly firms the skin, protects skin cells from oxidative damage and stimulates skin’s natural production of collagen-I. Pro-Vitamin B5 – a substance naturally found in healthy cells, this pro-vitamin enhances barrier function to protect, moisturize and soothe skin. Thermophilic microorganism from extreme conditions in the deep sea off the Gulf of California – has a multi-enzymatic activity that inhibits ROS damage and protects skin cells from the harmful effects of UVA radiation. It also stimulates skin cell differentiation and strengthens epidermal resistance against aggression. Coenzyme Q10 (a.k.a. Ubiquinone) - a potent antioxidant and a critical component in the production of cell energy. It is naturally found in abundance in youthful skin; however, levels of CoQ10 reduce with age. Rice extract that contains sirtuin-activating compounds. Sirtuins boost skin’s natural repair and maintenance functions, thus increasing cell longevity and decreasing cellular aging. Sirtuins also protect cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin E Acetate – a potent lipophilic antioxidant that can penetrate the epidermis and protect cells from oxidative damage. Organically-cultivated green tea extract – rich in polyphenols, this extract has stimulating, soothing, antioxidant properties and is an effective free radical scavenger. Together, all of these ingredients provide your skin with the best defense system so it can function properly. What does that mean? Skin cells at the basal layer of the epidermis will not mutate – a process that can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin. Collagen and elastin are protected from glycation and will continue being produced normally and will not crosslink and cause rigidity. Overall, your skin will look and act younger and healthier. Basic Explanation: As the skin ages, cellular regeneration slows dramatically, leading to a sluggish cellular metabolism = skin cells turn over more slowly, thus the rate of new cell generation is compromised. to act as it did when you were younger. At the lower layers of the epidermis, where new skin cells are developed, the skin is “programmed” to produce an exact clone of the last skin cell that was produced. When we are 20, the skin cells (grapes) that are produced are perfect, undamaged and have no genetic mutations or environmentally related “fractures”. As we continue to age, and more and mare damage occurs to the genetic programming of our skin cells, the skin loses the ability to produce new, perfect and undamaged skin cells. As a result, every new layer of skin cells that are produced are increasingly more “fractured” as the damage is compounded. Regeneration Overnight Retinol Recovery Complex works two ways: #1 – speed the rate that new skin cells are developed, helping your skin act as it did when you were younger. #2 – put a coating of advanced reprogramming active ingredients to help disguise the “fractures” in the skin’s cells, helping to encourage the skin to produce newer, more perfected skin cells with every production of new cells. This formula is designed to help “ reprogram” the genetic mutations and encourage the ability for the skin to regain youthful activity and a greatly perfected appearance. The skin will improve with each new layer of skin cells that are developed to reveal skin that is more perfected with continued use. Don't let another night go by without this amazing product.
