Your skin is an extremely complex system – knowing how to take care of it in the most appropriate way can sometimes be a chore. Although there’s a wide variety of cosmetic products available on the market, not every one of them is delicate or effective enough to help your skin withstand the test of time. Since this organ is fully devoted to the protection of your body from any external harm, however, it deserves your best efforts to protect it as well. The more you will keep your skin healthy, the longer it will take before it will start showing the effect of aging.
SimySkin 25+ All-in-one Antiaging serum has been designed to exploit the full power of its many natural ingredients, and keep your skin always luminous, always hydrated, always protected. Lilac extract is one of these amazing ingredients – a unique plant extract that will act at the molecular level to rejuvenate the inner layers of your dermis. Lilac blooms are much more than just ornamental flowers – they can help your skin flourish by acting as an exceptional tightening agent and toner. In fact, their extract has become a staple in many natural products, thanks to its ability to treat sunburn, scrapes, and rashes.
But first, let’s have a look at how your cutaneous cells work and how they respond to damage over time.
The human skin – a marvelous and complex organ
Cellular regeneration occurs inside the most profound layer of the dermis, known as the basal layer (stratum basale). Here a selected group of undifferentiated cells known as “stem cells” have the ability to duplicate themselves countless times, and give birth to a vast amount of diverse cells with different functions. Once born, these cells will slowly move towards the surface of the skin. As they reach the upper layer of the epidermis, they start filling themselves with keratin until they die and become “solid” keratinized cells that form a barrier against external agents.
Every time your skin gets damaged by, for example, weather, sun exposure, or chemical substances, stem cells duplicate once more to support the constant renewal of the most exposed layers. Any alteration of the so-called homeostasis (the natural balance of your skin) may increase this damage. Some examples are excess sebum, topical infections, or the use of harsh cosmetic products. However, as you start aging, this process becomes slower and less efficient. Over time, the number of dead cells will surpass living ones, and the skin will start showing the visible signs of aging, such as sagging, dullness, and wrinkles.
How does Lilac Extract assist with cellular protection and repair?
Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) is a species of fragrant flowering plant that is native of the temperate regions of Europe, such as France, Italy, and Germany. Its flowers are capsule-shaped clusters of bright lavender blooms, and share the same refreshing floral scent of the eponymous extract. This beautiful garden shrub is extremely resilient and able to survive even without so much maintenance, mostly thanks to its high content in antimicrobial substances that protect the plant from harmful fungi, worms, and bacteria.
This same property is just one of the many amazing powers that lilac has. In fact, microbes may overstimulate your sebaceous glands, causing acne and skin bumps. Lilac extract’s potent antimicrobial effects are known to be able to purify your skin from the many bacteria which may cause local inflammation and infection. Together with its refreshing and astringent properties, it is a potent skin toner that will tighten your skin and reduce skin sagging.
But the secret of this flower lies in a compound known as verbascoside. A powerful antioxidant, this molecule’s strong anti-inflammatory effects have been widely studied already, especially for the treatment of atopic dermatitis and other serious skin conditions. It is so potent that it is even more effective than some traditional medications such as hydrocortisone and triamcinolone. It is able to stimulate DNA activity, support its repair from oxidative damage, and induce cellular regeneration. Lilac’s protective capabilities against inflammatory and environmental insults seem to be related to this substance, which can also accelerate the wound-healing process.
Other than helping inflamed and reddened skin, however, this whole plant’s extract is capable of suppressing the melanogenesis process that causes age spots and hyperpigmentation. By stimulating cellular regrowth, it will actively fight against some of the key reactions that eventually lead to skin aging.
SimySkin 25+ All-in-one Antiaging serum and the power of Lilac’s extract
Lilac oil is an invaluable help to normalize all types of skin, including the most delicate or extremely oily ones. Its stress-relieving and soothing properties can help calm all kind of irritations, such as those associated with eczema, sunburn, acne, and topic wounds. For this reason, lilac oil is a key element in our SimySkin 25+ All-in-one Antiaging serum. In conjunction with all the other active ingredients, it will provide you with an amazingly effective synergy of natural substances.
The combined effect of lilac extract and the other ingredients are perfect for preventing aging, protecting against oxidation and irritation, providing immediate hydration, and suppressing hyperpigmentation. It will help address the over-production of skin oil and make your skin even more luminous and bright. Lilac’s refreshing fragrance will relax and purify your skin while helping restore its delicate balance and stimulate its renewal.
