Understanding Your Skin
The skin is a complex organ, composed of two main layers: the epidermis and the dermis. In addition to being the largest organ of the body, the skin is also one of the most important, protecting the rest of the body from the outside environment.
The outer layer, the epidermis, is comprised of four layers, which are responsible for keeping water in, keeping infection out and helping to regulate body temperature - among other vital functions. The inner layer, the dermis, is composed mainly of connective tissue that provides the strength and elasticity your skin needs to resist stressors. Both layers are vital in understanding and treating nearly all skin conditions and concerns.
A multitude of factors contribute to the outward appearance of your skin: environmental aggressors like the sun, pollution, and the weather; internal aggressors, like diet and hydration; and your own biochemistry, such as hormones and genetic predispositions. Whether you are looking to improve the appearance of aging skin, blemishes, uneven skin tone, flushing or other conditions, the intricate skin system requires a multifaceted approach to treatment.
Extremozymes® are enzymes produced by plants living in extreme environments that assist survival and adaptability. These miracles of adaptation can also be used to protect human skin from damage caused by environmental extremes.
We draw from the natural selection processes of specialized extremophilic organisms, pioneering the future of skin care in terms of ultimate protection for healthy skin.
The appearance of aging skin is one of the most common skin concerns. A large percentage of aging in the skin comes from sun exposure, which positions potent antioxidants as important keys to reducing the appearance of skin aging. Visual signs of aging can include lines, wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone. iS CLINICAL product combinations and regimens help to increase cellular renewal by utilizing gentle but effective exfoliation combined with potent antioxidants and advanced Extremozyme® technology.
Blemishes are a very common concern, affecting over 17 million Americans and 80-90% of teens worldwide. As many factors can contribute to these challenging problems, an important first step would be to consult a skin care professional. iS CLINICAL products assist with the multiple concerns of blemish-prone skin, and are formulated to penetrate into the skin's surface, clearing out clogged pores while gently exfoliating away pore-clogging dead skin cells, oil and debris.
Rapidly combat the look of tired, aging eyes with iS CLINICAL eye products, proven to reduce the appearance of dark circles, crow's feet and under-eye puffiness. These products help support the delicate skin around the eye area while providing potent antioxidants to strengthen, and nourishing hydration to soften and smooth the skin's appearance.
Complex factors contribute to dry, flaky skin, and several of these change with age. Environmental factors such as ambient dryness, irritants, or bathing habits may be to blame. iS CLINICAL products and regimens help to maintain skin barrier function and hydration balance, while keeping skin protected and maintaining a soft and supple appearance.
The look of enlarged pores is a common skin concern. This can result from excess sun exposure and lack of a complete and balanced skin care regimen. iS CLINICAL products gently yet powerfully resurface the skin, deep cleaning to produce a remarkable reduction in the appearance of enlarged pores. Potent botanical antioxidants nourish while encouraging improvements in the look of skin health and bringing a glow to the complexion.
iS CLINICAL products help to reduce the appearance of redness and flushing in the skin with gentle, multi-tasking antioxidants and nourishing formulas. The appearance of excess redness in the skin can be a sign of inflammation which is linked to the increase in the aging appearance of skin. These botanically based skin formulas benefit all skin types experiencing the challenge of visible redness in the skin.
Uneven skin tone can develop from a variety of different reasons, and it usually appears as dark spots on the skin. iS CLINICAL products help to address these visual concerns in many ways: the first by providing support against environmental aggressors that contribute to these concerns through the use of potent antioxidant protection, then by providing controlled exfoliation and utilizing powerfully gentle botanical extracts. The result is brighter skin with a reduction in the appearance of uneven skin tone and an overall improvement in the appearance of aging in the skin.
