Ultraviolet radiation from the sun, smoking pollution and the nautal aging process are just a handful of factors that can cause your DNA to become damged, which shows up in the form of discoloration, sagging skin and even skin cancer.
“Antioxidants act like sponges to ‘mop up’ oxidants floating inside the cells that damage DNA, but they can’t repair the damage,” says Eagan, MN, dermatologist Charles E. Crutchfield III, MD. So how can you repair the damage for healthier, younger-looking skin? The answers lies in creams and serums that contain DNA repair enzymes. Dervived from marine and botanical sources such as plankton, these powerful age and damage reversers have been deemed by beauty experts as one of the most important things to happen to skin care.
Encapsulated in Liposomes (tiny synthetic bubbles made of the same materal as cell membranes) so they can be delievered deep into skin, DNA repair enzymes literally seek out damaged DNA in skin cells and then repair it. DNA repair enzymes work like a seamstress of sorts, cutting out the damage and then patching the holes with a piece of undamaged DNA, which is what makes them so revolutionary. Products that contain these enzymes have the potential to really make a difference in overall skin quality and health.
