The science behind the Proactive Age Kit
The skin is your body's largest organ and is made up of three layers; the epidermis (top layer), dermis (middle layer) and the subcutaneous tissue (bottom layer). On average, your skin renews itself every 28 days and is a reflection of how you've cared for it during your skin cycle.
The Proactive Age Kit is a 5-step, anti-ageing system that contains the skincare products and routines to treat the top two layers. The epidermis is home to your skin barrier which is your body’s frontline defence and the dermis is where the ageing process occurs.
By treating both together, the Kit delivers the ultimate transformation! Here's how...
Rebuilding your skin barrier
Your skin barrier is your body’s frontline defence against everything the world throws at you. It's found in the top layer of your epidermis (stratum corneum), and in brief terms, stops moisture getting out and external irritants getting in.
If your skin barrier is not fully functioning, your skin will become too dry, oily or sensitive and will even accelerate the ageing process!
Think of your skin barrier like the roof of a house, its job is to protect everything within it. If the roof is damaged, the contents of the house will get damaged too. This is why we have to rebuild the skin barrier as well as treat ageing.
How the Kit rebuilds your skin barrier
The Proactive Age Kit contains your 5-step morning and evening skincare routines. Each step is designed to repair your skin barrier by ensuring your skin is properly nourished and never over-exfoliated.
The products are formulated with essential fatty acids, peptides and hyaluronic acid to completely balance the skin, even the texture and deliver the glow, of all glows!
Treating ageing at the source
Ageing occurs in your dermis (middle layer) and is made up of 3 key functions; collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. Each one is absolutely essential for maintaining youthful, glowing skin.
Collagen: Collagen is a protein that acts as scaffolding to keep your face plump and lifted. As we age, this scaffolding begins to break-down causing sagging, wrinkles and a loss of firmness.
Elastin: Also a protein, elastin is super stretchy and allows your skin to expand and bounce back, providing a tight appearance. As we age, the elastin fibres erode causing expression lines to remain.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule within your skin that helps to bind moisture to ensure your skin is supple and hydrated. With ageing comes hyaluronic acid depletion, causing the skin to appear dull and tired.
How the Kit treat treats ageing
Our products and skincare routines work in complete unison to treat all three functions simultaneously and deliver youthful, glowing skin.
Each product is formulated with scientifically-proven, active ingredients such as retinol, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. They repair, strengthen and stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin fibres, whilst increasing your hyaluronic acid levels.
Our 5-step skincare routines create a specialised delivery system that enables every product to reach the deeper layers of your skin, to treat and reverse ageing at the source.
The Proactive Age Kit really is the ultimate transformation.
