We’re not the first generation to feel the impact of stress on our lives, and we won’t be the last. AENEA skincare is proud to have created a serum that is specially designed to deal with the day-to-day impact of stress on our skin.
How we handle stress is critical to the way our skin looks. When we’re stressed our body releases stress hormones – adrenaline and cortisol – to help us deal positively with all life throws at us, from heavy traffic to a bad day at work. There are other types of stress that affect our skin too – pollution, smoke, sleep deprivation and UV exposure.
Our bodies have a feedback mechanism which returns the skin cells to a “normal” state.
However, under such pressures, our skin cells can’t let up from producing cortisol and eventually they go into overdrive. The longer the skin cells produce cortisol, the more our skin stops working efficiently, resulting in redness, inflammation, and a tired look.
Your skin needs a hero, and AENEA Anti-Stress Super Hero is the perfect one. Its active ingredient is Neurophroline, which comes from the native Indian plant wild indigo (Tephrosia purpurea).
Loved in Ayurvedic medicine for its benefits to the skin, AENEA scientists work with a specific extraction from the seeds of this plant, rich in sugars that help the skin to break down cortisol production.
Able to activate the release of a calming neuropeptide, it has the ability to act on our mood, further inhibiting our stress responses.
It acts fast, with studies showing that the cortisol produced by keratinocytes in the skin as an instantaneous answer to a stress factor can be reduced by up to 70% in a mere two hours.
Skin that is exposed to external stressors, like pollution, also benefits from the protective qualities of AENEA Anti-Stress Super Hero, with significant improvement to the skin’s luminosity in as little as two weeks and a reduction in redness and dark circles.
Offering further protection via the active ingredient Ormesia, which comes from the seeds of the Peruvian Maracuja plant (also known as the passion flower), AENEA Anti-Stress Super Hero is a highly efficient skin strengthening protector.
