Do you want to feel beautiful and enjoy good health? Discover which beauty care products will help achieve your goal. But first – some important information you need to know.
The Body’s Building Blocks – How do they Work?
Below the surface layer are sweat and oil glands, hair follicles, blood vessels, nerves, and muscle tissue. This is all held together by a connective tissue called collagen. It hardens as the years go by and is unable to absorb and hold moisture. It then binds to other collagen fibers causing unwanted wrinkling. Magic of Aloe has several care products to address age-lines.
The skin is constantly renewing and repairing itself. It needs daily cleansing care to remove, dirt, dust and the dead cells that lay on the surface. If this waste is not eliminated the pores become clogged – causing dryness, pimples, acne or psoriasis. Babor’s Cleansing system will do the job.
pH – an Important Consideration
Slightly acidic with a pH value of 4.5 to 6 and with a coating of oil, your skin has double protection against bacteria. With the passing of time, the pH tends to rise and the skin weakens making it vulnerable to damage and infections. So consider whether the products you purchase have an effect on this important pH balance. pH Advantage so named because of its low pH has products that cover every need – acne, anti aging, cleansing and protection from the sun.
Why Different Skin Colors?
There is a pigment in the skin called melanin. The more of this the cells make, the darker you are and the less – the lighter. Sitting in the sun can also cause more melanin to be manufactured. The result is a suntan. In a darker person there are more and larger pigment producing cells. Incidentally black people look younger longer because this pigment protects them from sunlight and slows down the aging process.
