AENEA Lifestyle Enhancer is a skin serum which works a bit like a booster for your daily beauty regime to tackle the effects of glycation.
What is glycation exactly? Technically it’s the process by which the structure and activity of proteins within the skin becomes slowly stiffer, leading to the collagen and elastin becoming less elastic, a well-known cause of premature ageing.
Another way to understand glycation is if you think about what happens when meat is cooked in a frying pan. As it is exposed to heat, the natural sugars in it become more rigid until finally the steak is hard.
This is what happens to our skin when it is exposed to the ageing rays of the sun – it’s slowly glycating. As the sugar molecules react with free amino groups of proteins, irreversible cross-linked molecules are formed, modifying the structure of our skin and making it appear more brittle and stiff.
It’s an irreversible process, causing yellowing of the skin, and a loss of elasticity and suppleness. Made worse by high dietary glucose levels, and by natural ageing, it has an overall detrimental effect on the visible appearance of our skin.
AENEA Lifestyle Enhancer contains an active ingredient called Ameliox which has a powerful anti-glycation component within it called Carnosine, as well as potent antioxidants, which act as reinforcements.
Carnosine inhibits the cross-linking of proteins and protects collagen and elastin fibres. It already occurs naturally in our body and is a well-known anti-glycation active ingredient. Combined with antioxidants like Silymarin, which comes from the milk thistle plant, which is able to capture and neutralise free radicals, the collagen fibres are protected and stay elastic.
AENEA Lifestyle Enhancer also has at its core, the active ingredient, Ormesia, derived from the passionfruit, known for its ability to active the skin’s own defence mechanisms against pollution. The resulting serum is a powerful skin protector and has spectacular anti-wrinkle effects, helping the skin to look more youthful within the first month of use.
