Sweet Almond Oil
Years of religious use of sunscreen, unending days spent looking for the best skin lifting creams, countless nights wearing a moisturizing face mask… As a woman, taking care of your skin can be a challenging task. Without the right products, it is only a matter of time before aging starts taking its toll. Moisturizing and nourishing your dermis is vital to keep your skin supple and smooth. Protecting it from exposure to hazardous chemicals and weather conditions is vital to keep the evenness of your skin tone, preventing the formation of dark spots. But today, this struggle finally has an answer: SimySkin 45+ Antiaging serum.
Many natural ingredients can be used to prevent the signs of aging and rejuvenate your skin while you’re still in time. Highly active substances such as sweet almond oil can be combined with other natural extracts to provide you with all the necessary protection to help your skin stay young as long as you can.
What happens to your skin as you age?
Wrinkles and fine lines tend to accumulate under your eyes, but many wise women know that you can still counter them if you’re quick enough – they’re totally preventable. Pollution, bad weather, sun, and even smoking expose your skin to the destructive effects of the free radicals. Those nasty molecules damage the structural peptides needed by your dermis to stay smooth, such as elastin, ceramides, and collagen. Creams and oils with antioxidants can help you reduce this damage – that’s why we added Sweet Almond oil to our SimySkin 45+ Antiaging serum.
Dark spots, on the other hand, are usually nothing but our unfortunate past mistakes catching up with us. When your cells are exposed to sun damage, a reaction called hyperpigmentation causes them to become darker. Those tiny freckles, however, take years to reach the skin's surface, emerging as a nasty surprise as you reach your 40s. The top layer of the epidermis also becomes dull as it is exposed to extreme temperatures, wind, and other hazards. The best solution is to protect your skin with a nourishing oil as much as you can, but if your skin is already becoming dull and dry, you can still brighten your complexion with the right products.
Losing and gaining weight can reduce the tautness of your skin just as much as aging. The overall effect of a saggy and loose skin is a gaunt expression that will make you look perpetually tired. The most effective solution is to restore volume and hydration on the outer layers to enhance or restore facial features. Products that can replenish the inner layers of your dermis with the right amount of water can do wonders to rejuvenate your skin and soften crow’s feet and dynamic lines under your eyes.
What is Sweet Almond Oil?
Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil is a straw-colored oil extracted from almonds used in cosmetic products for its amazing dermatological properties. It is obtained from the ripe seeds of the plant, and its use began centuries ago when the ancient Hindus found that crushed almonds could be used as a soothing and nourishing body cleaner. When it comes to protect and rejuvenate your skin, sweet almond oil really comes full circle.
Your skin is structured like a brick wall constituted by dermal cells (the “bricks”) surrounded by fatty acids that act like the “mortar.” This structure acts as a protective barrier against external agents and microbial attacks, but its function depends on the integrity of the substances that compose it. Sweet almond oil is full of oleic and linoleic oil, two key triglycerides that constitute this barrier and that need to be constantly replenished as the skin is exposed to any form of aggression (such as by harsh cosmetic products or soaps). Once applied, it lubricates your skin surface, giving it a supple and soft appearance by increasing moisture retention and internal hydration.
Almond oil is a potent soothing agent and emollient, and it is known for its anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and antioxidant properties. Other than shielding your cutaneous layers from peroxidation, it also improves complexion providing your skin with unexpected luminosity. It ameliorates all forms of inflammation, thus preventing any further damage that your skin can suffer as its barrier activity is endangered by inflammatory reactions. It helps fighting dryness and itching and is great to protect your skin against cold and heat as well as UV damage, so it’s useful both during the winter and summer as well. It is so effective yet delicate at the same time that it has been safely used for the most sensitive skins, such as those affected by conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
