Anti-Stress & Anti-Aging Care


The body responds to stress by releasing powerful hormones into the human nervous system. What was initially developed as our evolutionary “fight-or-flight" response has increasingly proven to have serious consequences for the physiological health of those living in a chronic stress environment.1 One way this can manifest through the skin—after all, your skin is your biggest organ— is by reducing blood supply causing it to suffer from a lack of color & radiance. Additionally, persistent stress-induced hormone imbalance can also result in severe skin dehydration & the formation of areas of discoloration known as Melasma.2

Unfortunately, its not always possible to avoid stress completely which is why we created the Anti-Stress Care line for Bionova. In order to properly address the specific needs of stressed skin, an anti-stress care product must to act on multiple metabolic pathways simultaneously. This includes improving epidermal tension, localized blood circulation, skin nourishment, and protein and carbohydrate metabolism. The carefully balanced Nanocomplex™ of antioxidants, free radical scavengers, and bioflavonoids found in Bionova Anti-Stress Care products combat oxidative stress and protect the skin from premature aging whilst smoothing existing facial lines and wrinkles.

There are two major types of aging, intrinsic and extrinsic.1 The natural aging process, or ‘intrinsic aging,’ is largely genetically controlled. For example, after age 25, the collagen level in our skin begin to decline by about 1% every year. ‘Extrinsic aging,’ on the other hand is premature aging induced by external factors. These age-related changes induce a structural transformation of the proteins within the deep layers of the skin resulting in the formation of wrinkles on the upper epidermal surface.

Therefore, we must take a two-pronged approach to addressing aging: 1) prevention and 2) reduction of the already occurring structural changes. This requires complex approach that takes into consideration the factors regulating skin thickness, elasticity, adherence to the tissue, and the skin’s natural metabolic processes and regenerative abilities.
