DNA skincare is the new science-driven way to get the best skin of your life
There are even a few skin disorders that can be entirely caused by inherited factors, such as albinism, epidermolysis bullosa and ichthyosis. Other skin disorders such as acne and discolouration can also derive from our DNA. Thus, even if you are religious with your skincare regime, sometimes it’s all down to your genetic makeup. But your current skincare products aren’t entirely powerless, because while they can’t transform your genetic makeup, they can help to counteract or calm the effects occurring on the surface.
How does DNA skincare supposedly work?
Rather than just buying any old product from the shelf and hoping for the best, DNA skincare uses information gathered from your own genetic makeup to prescribe the products, and a routine to counteract any adverse effects.
“Once your genetic make-up has been recorded, it’s turned into a report detailing your particular skin characteristics and how it’s predicted to change in the future”, says Patricia. “This, in turn, gives you a better understanding of your skin and skin type so you can manage and understand it in later life.” Now you understood how DNA skincare is such a break though in skincare technology? Then of course you will love this masks:
Mediheal DNA Proatin Korean Face Sheet Mask, pack of 10
What else you should know?
- it contains a skin brightening ingredient (Niacinamide) that is very high up in the list, meaning, there must be quite a lot of it in the serum (or emulsion rather, due to its thick consistency)
- it has the following anti-ageing ingredients: Niacinamide, Adenosine, Ceramide, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Peptides
- it contains healing ingredients such as Arginine, Allantoin
- as well as moisturizing/hydrating ingredients, for instance Betaine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Squalane (also anti-ageing) and Xylitylglucoside
- and plant oils/extracts such as Althea Rosea Flower Extract and Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, also high up in the ingredients list.
From the list, the underlined ingredients that are the amino acids as one of the descriptions mentions them. They ”maintain skin’s hydration, texture, resilience, and an overall supple, healthy appearance” and they work well with ingredients such as Peptides, Ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid (all of them present in the emulsion).
Overall, based on the ingredients list, the Mediheal DNA Proatin (Aquaring) Sheet Mask certainly has a highly moisturizing, skin barrier restoring (healing) and anti-ageing potential. Some of those ingredients are supposed to repair the skin, some of them make it more resistant to ageing, some of them hydrate/lock in the moisture to keep the skin plump. And there are quite a lot of them, the majority being safe and effective in what they do. So the sheet mask is a real bomb in terms of active ingredients which is a big plus.
BIRD’S NEST: AN ASIAN SECRET FOR BEAUTY
Ever wondered why Asian women seem to keep their youthful look longer than their Western counterparts? It seems they have the secret to slowing down aging and keeping that glow of youth forever. One such secret is bird’s nest. This product is regarded as one of the four great youth tonics in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
Bird’s nest is one of the most difficult natural products to harvest and therefore is also one of the most expensive consumed by humans. This essential ingredient comes from the nest built by the male swiftlet, a kind of swallow, along the inner walls of sea caves. The swift takes thirty five days to carefully weave the nest using strands of its saliva. Harvesting these nests from cave walls requires specialised experience in caving and climbing techniques. Harvesters use bamboo poles to reach the nests and carefully scrape the nest from inside using special tools. Only a portion of the nest is taken, allowing the swiftlet to be able to rebuild the nest.
Long used by the Chinese in their cuisine, bird’s nest is rich in organic nutrients, including many glyco-proteins and amino acids, and essential minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium. It is considered a yin tonic because of its cooling effect on the body. It provides a number of health and beauty benefits including the rejuvenation of epidermal cells to improve the elasticity and complexion of the skin, bolstering the body’s immune system to fend off disease, enhancing cardiovascular and respiratory functions, reducing fatigue and boosting libido and sexual function.
The skin benefits of bird’s nest have made it an essential ingredient in some of today’s Asian beauty products, particularly in tonics and face masks. When combined with collagen, bird’s nest can transform dull and wrinkled skin into a vision of luminosity and youthful radiance. Users swear that the skin is nourished and hydrated, softening it to keep it young-looking. Some bird’s nest beauty products also contain hyaluronic acid which aids in smoothing wrinkles and promotes skin hydration. That’s why you will love:
