What is Skin+?
Skin+ is a revolutionary sleep technology Tencel fabric designed to boost your beauty sleep. Formulated for use in pillows and mattresses, this patented Tencel fabric harnesses the power of probiotics, helping your skin to look and feel younger.
The unique fabric is enriched with microcapsules infused with probiotic antioxidant carotenoids.
Friction caused by movement of the face or body across the fabric opens the capsules, releasing the probiotics, which multiply and produce antioxidant carotenoids.
When these carotenoids are released, they become airborne, attaching to the skin through your bedding and sleepwear. Carotenoids help to repair damage to the skin cells caused by free radicals like UV Rays and other environmental stressors like pollution.
The antioxidant carotenoids stabilize the effects of free radicals on the skin, working to repair damaged skin cells. Carotenoids are some of the most powerful antioxidants, working to increase collagen production and skin elasticity. For younger looking skin.
The Skin+ Pillowcase’s fabric is light and soft to the touch with small dots across the surface. The Skin+ is tailored to the shape of the Beauty Pillow, helping to boost the anti-aging pillow’s effectiveness.
What are Free Radicals?
Free Radicals are all around and inside us. They are essentially uneven molecules that can create long chain reactions in the body when they become oxidized. Not all Free Radicals are created even (literally) and they’re not all bad. Our body uses these feisty atoms to fight off bacteria and prevent illness.
On the other hand, some Free Radicals can be damaging to our health and have some pretty extensive and long lasting effects. External environmental factors can stress our skin and bodies, leading to premature aging of our skin. One of the best things we can do for our bodies and for our skincare routine is to live a balanced lifestyle.
Eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, enjoying moderate amounts of exercise and getting enough sleep are the best ways to protect our bodies against free radicals. It’s not always easy, but the more you try, the easier it gets to be consistent. When it comes to external environmental factors, that’s a different story.
External environmental factors that can affect our skin at a cellular level include:
And more! There’s even research that demonstrates high levels of blue light exposure can negatively impact our skin.
How Can I Protect My Skin From Environmental Stressors?
Protecting our skin and preventing the early signs of aging can be a difficult task. The best thing to do for your skin is to wear sunscreen every day. Protecting your skin against UV Rays and UV radiation is key to maintaining a bright, even complexion.
Too much sun exposure can result in a loss of skin elasticity, hyperpigmentation and result in skin that is more heavily lined and wrinkled. Protecting your skin year round from the effects of the sun is essential. But what about the other environmental free radicals?
It’s much harder to protect your skin from the negative effects of pollution. Ensuring you have a consistent skin care regimen tailored to your skin type and your lifestyle is key. Making sure you support your skin with a cleansing and moisturizing routine at the end of each day is essential. Dirt, sebum and makeup can build up on the skin's surface, creating irritation and potentially leading to breakouts.
But what about under the surface? Topical treatments can only go so far. Enter Skin+!
Skin+ harnesses the restorative power of antioxidant carotenoids to repair and restore damaged skin cells. Carotenoids are amongst the most powerful antioxidants for skin repair and rejuvenation. Like other antioxidants, carotenoids attach and stabilize free radicals at a molecular level, countering their negative effects.
The carotenoids contained in the Skin+ microcapsules revive and rejuvenate tired or damaged skin cells, increase collagen production and promote skin elasticity.
How Can I Incorporate Skin+ Into My Routine?
Skin+ is designed to elevate your skincare routine and provide advanced overnight support for your skin, all while you sleep.
The Skin+ Pillowcover is tailor made for the Beauty Pillow. The patented sleep technology fabric releases antioxidants to nourish your skin, while the Beauty Pillow elevates your head, increasing circulation and preventing sleep wrinkles caused by overnight compression.
Sleeping on the Skin+ Pillowcase will improve your skin’s elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help to increase the efficacy of your nightly skincare routine.
