Antiaging skin is dependent on what you eat, what you feed your skin in terms of nutrients, and what you place on your skin.

Key Factors

These are the key factors for ensuring anti-aging healthy, young, glowing skin. Various factors and processes inside your body can bring on signs of aging. The culprit: oxidative damage, caused by free radical damage from pollution, cigarette smoke, fried and burnt foods, processed cooking oils, sunlight, combustion, and ironically, even your body’s own burning of oxygen to produce energy.

Just as oxygen can damage iron to form rust, it can also damage molecules in the skin and body. The oxidants are overall very destructive, as they damage fats, proteins, connective tissue, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). The membranes of your cells and the DNA within them are particularly vulnerable to such attack, both of which affect the condition of your skin and its ability to generate new cells. A major way free radicals cause aging is by attacking the lipids between skin cells that hold moisture in and pollutants out. They destroy DNA’s genetic code that determines the health of successive cell generations, and harden cell walls until water and air can no longer be transferred in and waste cannot be sent out.

A true anti-aging skin care program needs to provide free radical protection internally and externally. The flexibility and health of collagen and elastin fibers is dependent on anti-oxidant protection, and external topical care to counteract the damage caused by free radicals.

Antiaging skin care begins by taking Amino Key Basic Plus and Amino Key IAmino Key Basic Plus provides all of the vitamins and minerals the body requires so that it can generate and build healthy new skin cells, collagen and elastin. Amino Key is a powerful protector against free radical damage. It provides the key factors for the body to manufacture superoxide dismutase (SOD enzyme), one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered.

The patented minerals in the KelaKare Youth Enhancing skin care program provide anti-oxidant and free radical protection. In addition, vitamin E acetate is used for its ability to penetrate into the skin to scavenge free radicals. It protects certain T-cells from free radical damage, thereby enhancing the immune system. The skin is the largest organ of the body. Over half of the T-cells found in the immune system are located in the skin. Vitamin E is an important immune stimulant internally and externally. Squalane and Squalene replenish the skin cells with much-needed oxygen and also provide an antioxidant effect. Squalane is a powerful antioxidant found in all human tissue with the greatest concentration in the skin. When applied topically, it has a wonderful moisturizing benefit. Algae peptides provide amino acids to rebuild skin protein. Dimethicone protects skin from dry, arid climates while keeping moisture within skin layers. Glycolipids and Phytosterols are plant-derived lipids that replace lost lipids between skin cells, restoring skin’s soft, smooth texture and supple resiliency.

Finally, fighting the anti-aging health of skin cells depends on sufficient zinc, internally and externally for accurate production of new generations of skin cells. Lack of zinc leads to stretch marks, poor healing, and a wide variety of skin problems from acne to exzema. Vitamin A, C and E are standard anti-oxidants for the skin. Vitamin A helps control the rate of keratin accumulation in the skin, and normalizes DNA, which results in healthy cells that function better. It also improves collagen and elastin production, aids in normal sebum production and pigment control, and repairs old damage. Collagen is made when vitamin C converts the amino acid prolin into hydroxyproline. No vitamin C, no collagen. The final arsenal in an anti-aging skin care program is to make certain that there is enough Selenium, Manganese, Copper, and Magnesium internally and topical fortification supplying Zinc, Copper, and Manganese. Basic plus provides these nutrients and others in a patented bio-available form for maximum absorbency in the cells. Both KelaKare Youth Enhancing Lotion and KelaKare Youth Enhancing Daily Repair contain Zinc, Manganese, Copper, vitamin E, and vitamin C. KelaKare Youth Enhancing Cleanser contains Zinc in a formula that will moisture-balances the skin. It will not destroy the Natural Moisturizing Factor of the skin, the natural pH of the skin, strip or dry out the skin, so there is no need to use an astringent or clairifying refreshner to restore the skins protective acid mantle.

Antiaging skin care products should not contain lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin wax, petrolatum or petrochemicals of any type. They interfere with the normal function of the skin and its ability to moisturize itself. They also lead to dry skin and chapping. That’s why individuals become “addicted “ to their lip gloss or Chap Stick—the more they use, the more they need because of the petrolatum dries out thier skin. Skin care products should be non-comedogenic. KelaKare Youth Enhancing advanced formula skin care products meet all of these criteria. They are an effective anti-aging skin care program, that is beneficial for men, women, and children for all skin types.
