THE AGING PROCESS – SIMPLIFIED!

Skin aging results from 2 forces: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic, or biological aging, results from natural processes that generally cannot be changed such as inherited DNA, the shortening of chromosomal telomeres after cell division.

How gracefully we age, however, is largely dependent on interactions with the environment, or extrinsic aging.

These environmental factors include:
• UV radiation
• Infrared radiation
• Smoking
• Air pollution
• Dietary habits
• Sleep deprivation
• Stress
• Disease

All these factors have one thing in common: oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress is damage caused to cells from the build-up of toxic reactive oxygen molecules, most notably free radicals – the fundamental cause of premature skin aging. Free radicals cause damage to cell structures, accumulating over time and expressed as the outward signs of aging: fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tones, and loss of skin elasticity.

Antioxidants are essential in skincare anti-aging therapy, which is why they are the basis for PRIORI® Skincare products. Vitamins A, C, E & Pro-A and Idebenone Complex* are all utilized for defense against oxidative stress.

In addition to antioxidants, PRIORI® Skincare products utilize Advanced AHA, which works by improving skin health through internal moisturization and surface cell exfoliation. Because both skin moisturization and exfoliation decrease with the natural aging of skin, Advanced AHA helps to “normalize” skin function, promoting it to a more youthful healthy appearance.
