What is a wrinkle?

November 12th, 2012 No comments

Today, we dedicate our blog to talk about one of the biggest skin-related concerns for women: Wrinkles.

We’ve all heard the clichés: Wrinkles are a roadmap of your life. But many of us would rather not be reminded of the distance we’ve traveled. A wrinkle is definitely the skin blemish most dreaded by women. The appearance of the first wrinkle, when they reach about 30 years of age, is often perceived as the unfair ravages of age. The mirror and the way others look at them lead women to try to treat and hide the marks of time. What solutions are available for dealing with this new enemy?
Should a “lazy“ skin be woken up? Does it need moisturising or nourishing?

A dermatologist is often required to inform a difficult choice amongst the multitude of products available. Differences between women in the way their skin ages and the acceleration of this process in response to sunshine and other life-style factors have made anti-wrinkle products an essential basic for all age-groups.

What is a wrinkle?
A fold in the skin caused by age or weight loss; “a small ridge or furrow on a surface, a crease” is the dictionary definition. Histological studies of wrinkles have revealed a series of major changes: the turnover of cells is slower and their ability to synthesise the supporting fibres is diminished. It has now been established that the skin gets thinner with age, that the sinusoidal dermo-epidermal interface gets flatter and this reduces the area of exchange interface between the dermis, which supplies the nutrients (it contains blood capillaries), and the epidermis. The quality of the epidermis also depends on that of the interface between this layer and the dermis. The loss of adhesion between these two structures, which is normally provided by collagen IV (a multi-sheet structure or basal layer) and collagen VII (anchored to the sheets structure), results in deficiencies in nutritional exchanges and a slowing of the circulation of the messengers that promote neo-synthesis processes (biologie moléculaire de la cellule, 1994). Paradoxically, mature skin contains more elastin (Tsuji et al., 1987 & Roelandts, 1994). Collagen is less efficiently replaced and this leaves empty spaces, which are gradually filled by nodules of elastin. The accumulation of these degraded elastic fibres (fragmented, calcified, excessive lipid content) implies a loss of the skin’s resistance to stretching with age(Robert, 1997).

What are we doing?
With more than with over 30 years of expertise in science & product achievements and a team of more than 25 European researchers were looking for a suitable treatment, which could stimulate the natural reconstitution of the mesh of the connective tissue by its action on the fibroblasts. The outcome of this development process is MATRISKIN. The anti-aging concept is based on very effective actives. The formulas are technically very sophisticated; that leads to pleasant textures and reflects the benefits of our actives. Our products answer to the biological needs of mature skins and also to consumers’ requests. MATRISKIN improves significantly firmness and tone of the skin.

Today we want to focus our post to one of the most famous components lately in the field of dermo-aesthetic: hyaluronic acid.

In 1934 the German chemist Karl Meyer and his colleague John Palmer, from Columbia University (New York), discover the hyaluronic acid, but it was not until 1996 when it started being used in cosmetics. Hyaluronic acid is a natural constituent present in the human body. Its presence is concentrated in the joints, cartilage tissues and skin, being primarily responsible for its hydration. Over the years, the amount of hyaluronic acid begins to decrease and the skin loses its ability to retain water, resulting in the first fine lines, which later will turn into wrinkles.

Today it is one of the most famous components in anti-aging treatments and creams, used both in creams and in oral cosmetic treatments; and also in noninvasive medicine as a wrinkle filler injectable.

Hyaluronic acid creams give back to the skin this component which was lost over the years, encouraging hydration, filling in lines and wrinkles and ultimately rejuvenating the skin.

Do you know the 2% Hyaluronic Acid of Matriskin? Visible results since the first use.

Matriskin and I….by Raquel Perera

August 2nd, 2012 No comments

Today I have decided to be the person who, on this occasion enters our weekly post, as I want to share with you all, how Matriskin products came to me and how nowadays they are part of my life and my daily routine:

Until recently, I didn’t pay much attention to skin care, I didn’t use any creams and felt great skepticism towards the entire universe of cosmetics.

One day, few small spots appeared on my face, then I began to investigate and became interested in finding products that could help to cure a skin condition like the one I had. This is when I came across Matriskin, the French line of dermocosmetics that I distribute today.

Those spots disappeared from my face. I researched more about the brand and realized that Matriskin makes up a range of unique products with high concentrations of active ingredients. Next, I thought that just as Matriskin had helped me, it could help other people with various skin conditions, so I decided to distribute the brand in America and Spain.

As I have found myself, skin care doesn’t require much money or time, all it requires is perseverance; we all can learn to be consistent, it’s all about starting, and soon we will see the beauty that lies behind our skin.

In my Matriskin routine, 5 premises:

2 times a week Osmopell Mask, which softens the stains, revitalizes the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Every day, 5% Vitamin C Serum: it prevents the appearance of wrinkles, removes stains and brightens the skin; Hyaluronic Acid Gel, one of my favorites: facelift without going under the knife! NO-PAD eye contour: a miracle anti bags; And finally High Performance Cream, which keeps my skin hydrated.

Caring for our skin with the appropriate products is essential, but we must never forget that true beauty is constructed through a healthy and balanced lifestyle, a harmonious mood and an optimistic and positive vision of everything around us. This is the only way our inner state will reflect positively on our outside.

See you soon!

The tissues of our skin are collagen-producing, so while we are young our skin stays smooth and firm. But as we age, our skin does not produce the same amount of collagen, hence first wrinkles arise and manifest.

The good news is that there are currently different ways to restore the collagen of our skin. First, by incorporating in our diet certain foods that increase collagen production, among others: rich in vitamin C products, red fruits and vegetables such as peppers, spinach, cauliflower, and omega fat acids: Salmon and tuna.

Secondly, it is important that our cosmetics are based on this natural substance, since the direct application will reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Do you know our collagen cream with around 90% concentration of this substance (see+) and our top sales: Matriskin Collagen Serum (see +)?
