How to get healthy skin – Skinfood

Skin is the largest organ in our bodies, so large it that adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it.  In fact National Geographic goes on to say this: Skin acts as a waterproof, insulating shield, guarding the body against extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. It also exudes antibacterial substances that prevent infection and manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones. Skin additionally is a huge sensor packed with nerves for keeping the brain in touch with the outside world. At the same time, skin allows us free movement, proving itself an amazingly versatile organ.

So what do we do to keep such an important part of our bodies healthy & hydrated?  We feed it of course!  Continue reading “How to get healthy skin – Skinfood”

Why Anti-Oxidants are important to the Skin

To understand why Anti-Oxidants are important we need to first understand what Free Radicals are.

From Rice University:  Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants.

A large number of the Free Radicals found on our skin are caused by radiation from the sun and damaging particles found in polluted air. These Free Radicals cause the same damage to your skin that they cause to our internal cells. When these Free Radicals break down the collagen in your skin, you may get fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet from a loss of elasticity. When Free Radicals damage your melanocytes, you get age spots. So of course our best course of protection is to apply products that will protect our skin before going out for the day and then to wash it all off and apply rejuvenating products at night.

Many companies may claim to have Anti-Oxidants in their products but often times these lower quality ingredients become inactive and ineffective once they are introduced to the air.  High Quality Anti-Oxidants are found, carefully extracted and included in these products.  Our ingredients and formulas are exclusive and offered only in the GS line of products because of our extensive history in the skin care industry, for almost 70 years.  One such ingredient, naturally grown Swiss Edelweiss is carefully cultivated with the strictest quality control guidelines in the industry, and has been proven to be a potent Anti-Oxidant extract that will help to protect the skin and give you long lasting skin health.
