Neutral Cosmetics are Beauty and Food Supplements that work within the deeper layers of the skin to nourish and revitalize and protect the skin.
Even though we know all of our Herbalife Nutrition products support all of the body. We wanted to launch something that was specific to Skin Health.
So, you may be asking yourself? Why Collagen Skin Booster? And Why now?
Because Collagen Skin Booster is one of our MOST popular products outside Europe!
In North America Herbalife Nutrition has a range of over 100 products and Collagen Skin Booster is in the top 10 of most requested products!
Why is that you ask?
Well, it’s because it is backed by science, and it is backed by results.
The reason most people continue to consume our amazing products on a daily basis is because of the Science and the Results that we're able to see in our body.
One of the main differences between our products and other products is that we have so much Science to back them up.
So, let's talk a little bit about the skin.
Let's talk a little bit about how the skin works.
Let's talk about why this product is going to be so beneficial to you.
So, a couple of reminders about Skin Care with Skin Care fundamentals.
As a reminder, although you might have already heard this, but skin is the largest living organ.
In order to keep it healthy, we must keep it flexible, and we must keep it hydrated. Healthy skin starts from within.
Remember, everything that you eat shows up on the skin.
But a good skincare routine can really help the skin look healthy.
The skin is the largest living organ that we have, it makes up about 15% of our body weight, it regulates our body temperature, our bodies are so smart that you don't have to tell yourself, “Hey, cells open up”, when it's hot outside so that you don't overheat, your body does it automatically.
You also do not have to tell your body, “Hey, cells close up”, when it's cold outside, to keep the heat inside because your body does it automatically.
It's a living organ, it knows what to do without you having to say anything.
In each square centimetre of our skin, we find about 6 million cells, about 100 sweat glands, 15 oil producing glands, 200 pain sensors and about five little hairs in each square centimetre.
It is the largest organ of the human body, and besides the brain, it's the most complex organ.
When we think of our body, as a living organ, we usually think of our lungs, we think of our heart, our stomach, our gut. But we don't think sometimes that our skin is a living organ… And yet it does so much for us.
Our cells are constantly re-generating themselves, we shed about 40,000 skin cells a minute!
So, it is a living organ that’s constantly regenerating itself.
This is why we have to take very good care of it, why we have to nourish it with the best ingredients available.
Let's talk a little bit about the different layers of the skin.
So, the outer layer of the skin is the part that protects our body.
The Skin has so many different layers, we could actually spend days talking about all the different layers, but we're just going to go over the surface layer and talk a little bit about what the different layers do.
Remember the Epidermis, this is where it creates new cells and protects the skin from damage. This is the first layer, it's a thin but very tough layer.
It keep’s continuously growing new cells. It brings them up to the surface and it makes it hard. It makes it a protective layer so that whatever is within it keeps within and whatever is on the outside it keeps outside.
It protects you from pollutants. It protects you from viruses and protects you from contamination. It's what keeps everything in your body intact. This layer needs to be protected. It needs to be flexible, it needs to be able to move in order to protect itself, because if it's not flexible, it could break easily, and if it breaks easily, things are able to get in there.
So, we want to make sure that this layer, which is a very important layer, stays hydrated and flexible.
The way to do that, is by what we put into our bodies.
Next there's a Dermis layer, that's the middle layer, that's where Collagen is located.
This provides elasticity and resistance and protects the body from injury.
Think of your body as a bed. Okay?
So that layer in the middle is like your mattress.
What happens to your mattress over time?
When you buy a brand-new bed, that mattress is, really really nice and firm, you can jump on it and it will bounce right back up.
It's fantastic, right?
But what happens after having that bed for 5 or 10 years, what happens?
It starts to get lumpy, right?
It starts to get dense right?
You bounce on it, and it doesn't quite bounce right back like it used to when it was new.
It takes a little bit longer for that bounce, right?
That's what happens with the Collagen in our body.
As time passes, as time progresses, Collagen starts to diminish.
That balance is not there like it used to be.
It's not as elastic as it used to be, just like that mattress in our bed, right?
So, the top layer is what protects us, and the middle layer is like that mattress.
The bottom layer of the skin is what sustains the middle layer.
But the middle layer is so so important, because that's what gives your bed that flexibility.
This is why Collagen in the body is so important because that's what gives your body that flexibility, and it is super thick, it's important to keep it healthy.
The Hypo Dermis is the bottom layer. The deepest layer of the skin, that's where the living cells are blood vessels and regulates the body temperature, acts as the energy reserve, it's composed of fat looking a bit string like.
This is what keeps all your organs in place.
And think of it this way, everything, everything, everything that you eat is going to show up on your skin!
Because everything that you eat is in that Hypo Dermis layer, and then it's going to move up to the Dermis and finally to the Epidermis (surface).
This is why everybody knows “You are what you eat”, and it will also show up on your skin.
So that's why Nutrition is so key.
For a healthy skin, it's key because what you eat in private will show up in public.
So, you might not tell everybody about the fact that you ate that piece of chocolate cake.
But if two days later, you're getting blemishes on your face, that's your body telling you “hey, you can hide what you eat, but you can’t hide the fact that it will show up on the largest living organ of the body, which is your skin…
So how do you help your skin age well?
As we age the skin gets thinner, it gets drier, less elastic over time, kind of like your mattress in your bed.
It becomes less able to protect itself from damage, it becomes more fragile, easily bruised, the blood vessels become thinner.
When you were younger you could accidently knock yourself and you might say “Oh, it just hurts”. But now you get a big bruise as well, because that's what happens as you age.
As you age your skin gets thinner and more fragile.
What are some factors that actually affect the body?
Well we just talked about the importance of nutrition, nutrition has so much to do.
Did you know that we start to lose anywhere from 1% of Collagen every year starting in our mid 20s, even up to 1.7%!?
The factors that are going to affect this a lot is your lifestyle.
So, you can lose Collagen chronologically.
Normally 1%, starting in your mid 20s, but you might not see the effects in your mid 20s.
But you're losing it!!!
And then it'll start to show up in your 30s and your 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.
But you start to lose it chronologically.
It's part of aging, it's normal.
However, you can lose it even quicker by some external factors if you're not careful.
So, it's very, very important that you look at environmental factors that can actually make you lose your Collagen a lot quicker.
Remember, Collagen is what gives your Skin that bounce, it’s what gives your body that structure. It's what keeps it looking smooth. It's what keeps it looking young.
You want to try to retain and maintain the Collagen that you have as much as possible.
There are things that you could be unaware of that you are doing that are going to diminish the Collagen in your body even quicker.
Those factors are 100% under your control.
Firstly, what is the quality of the nutrition that you put in your body?
The nutrients that you put in your body are essential to keep the Collagen that you have, so the nutrition you fuel yourself with, actually slows down the aging process that we're all going through.
You want to make sure that you're putting the right nutrients into your body. Make sure you're supplementing your body with all the key essential macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients and phyto-nutrients to keep your body healthy.
Obviously, also, Stress can affect your body negatively.
A little bit of stress is okay. If you're being chased by a lion, you need a little bit of stress, you need a little bit of adrenaline, a little bit of cortisol to get you running a lot quicker!
But most of us are not being chased regularly by lions or bears!
So, for the most part, a lot of stress is created in our minds, so it's mental stress for the most part... (To Be Continued)
