Your skin’s ability to resist the damaging effects of UV radiation depends on your body's genetically programmed ability to repair the damaged DNA in the skin cells, as well as the ability to produce red and black pigments. The study of multiple genes allows us to comprehensively assess photoaging when the skin is exposed to UV radiation. The data on the impact of genetic changes in the receptor of the melanocyte-stimulating hormone were obtained by French and Austrian scientists and were led by Anissa Elfakir from the Research Institute of Human Skin, which was founded by the brand CHANEL. For the revitalization of gene MC1R, the gene responsible for photoaging, and the enhancement of the photoprotective properties of your skin, we use coenzyme Q10 and the unique whey ANTIOXIDANT POWER ACTIVE. The high content of biologically active molecules in these components creates a “protective reserve” in your skin, and the UV-filter in the cream protects you from sun exposure. Antioxidant creams are often topically applied in combination with the internal administration of antioxidants to enhance the effectiveness through a synergistic effect. We recommend taking a dietary supplement containing the required amount of biologically active supplements. The reinforced formula of Younom’s SUN supplement, which contains beta-carotene, polyphenols, extracts of tomato, green tea, berries and fruits, is specially designed to protect your skin from sun exposure.
Skin hydration largely depends on the ability of the surface layers of the skin to absorb moisture and keep it in its deep layers. The study of the genetic characteristics of special proteins, called aquaporins, which deliver moisture to the deeper layers of the skin, allows us to assess the capability of the skin to retain moisture, the sensitivity to changes in pH, as well as its resistance to the damaging UV effects. Aquaporin protein is encoded in the AQP3 gene. This gene is crucial in retaining skin moisture, as described in the scientific study of Dr. Draelos from Duke University School of Medicine and his coauthors in 2002.
The cream contains the innovative serum BIOMARINE MOLECULAR COMPLEX, which is responsible for long-lasting hydration. Its unique formula is based on exopolysaccharides, which are produced by some species of marine bacteria to protect them from drying out at low tide. Its power exceeds the moisturizing effect of hyaluronic acid, which is most frequently used in cosmetics. The cream also contains hyaluronic acid, urea, glycerine, almond butter and other important ingredients. The continuous application of the cream for just a couple of weeks will increase “the water reserve” of your skin and will contribute to the continual activation of aquaporins in your skin.
The experts at Younom’s laboratory have also developed a special dietary supplement ELASTICITY, which contains astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants that exists in nature, a complex of B vitamins, and collagen hydrolysate, which ensure the normal function of your body’s systems that support and stimulate the hydration of your skin.
The elasticity of your skin depends on both external and internal factors. Maintaining optimal skin elasticity is achieved through constant renewal of skin cells due to the destruction of ‘old’ collagen and the formation of ‘new’ ‘collagen’. The study of 4 genes (IL6, MMP1, MMP3 and MMP9) related to this process allows us to estimate the balance in the formation and destruction of collagen, and the impact of adverse external factors such as UV radiation, cigarette smoke and chemicals on your skin’s elasticity.
The connection between genetic changes and the loss of skin elasticity was first discovered by a group of Indian researchers in the field of dermatology, including Pulok K. Mukherjee, in 2011. Further studies in the field of inflammation and flexibility mechanisms were carried out by Spanish researchers in 2014 and were led by Jordi Naval.
The innate ability to restore elasticity can be enhanced by continuously supplying the skin with antioxidant substances, which will significantly improve the condition of your skin and will slow down its aging. For this purpose, we use the unique serum YOUTH TETRAPEPTIDE, which prevents the collapse of elastin, stimulates the synthesis of Type I collagen in the skin, and restores its firmness and elasticity.
The experts at Younom’s laboratory have developed a special dietary supplement: ELASTICITY. It contains astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants that exists in nature, a complex of B vitamins, and collagen hydrolysate, which ensure the normal function of your body’s systems that support and stimulate the hydration of your skin.
The ability of the skin cells to resist the damaging effects of free radicals, and to bind and remove the toxic products of cell activity, is largely related to the activity of specific cellular enzymes and the fine regulation of their activity. The study of 5 of your genes allows us to evaluate the capabilities of the skin, which are inherent in the DNA and related to the protective properties of the skin, in the struggle against the influence of damaging environmental factors, allergens, and the risk of atopic reactions. The study of the genetically mediated antioxidant capabilities of the skin was carried out by American scientists in 2013 and was led by Shasha Tao.
To activate your antioxidant system and to enhance the protective properties of your skin, we use a set of trace ingredients and the unique whey ANTIOXIDANT POWER ACTIVE, which contributes to the increase of the stability of your skin cells to oxidative stress, protects your skin from UV radiation and has a positive effect on the appearance of your skin.
For a complex effect, in addition to the use of an individually selected face cream, the experts at Younom have developed a special dietary supplement that contains the required amount of biologically active substances. The reinforced formula of Younom’s SUN supplement, which contains beta-carotene, extracts of tomato, green tea, berries and fruits, is specially designed to support your antioxidant system and to enhance the protective properties of your skin.
