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.
