Valuable solutions for a radiant skin
Face and hand skin is that which is most exposed to the sun and atmospheric agents. If not adequately protected and looked after, it risks becoming opaque and fragile, showing the signs of ageing in a more marked manner. Above all, excessive exposure to the sun or using insufficient protection can in time lead to the appearance of brown spots on the hands, face and body.
Furthermore pollution, poor diet and smoke can further worsen health and the skin's appearance.
Exposure to UVA and UVB rays activates melanin production (melanogenesis) which involves the tyrosinase enzyme. The latter changes the tyrosine into pheomelanin, a yellow-orange chromophore, and eumelanin into brown chromophore.
The relationship between these two chromophores – together with the contributions of haemoglobin and collagen, our skin's other chromophores – determines whether our skin is darker or lighter. In cases where there has been excessive sun exposure, this mechanism in time produces an imbalance which causes the appearance of brown spots.
Discolouration and a dull complexion can be effectively combatted by using AlgeaEsthe Cream.
Used as ingredients, for example, in beauty creams, serums, gels and eye products, they nourish and hydrate skin, by helping to act on the mechanisms that determine the colour of the skin.
