Healthy and Younger Skin
As science and biotechnology has progressed, we’ve discovered that a healthy lifestyle consisting of regular exercise and a balanced diet that is rich in colorful fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and fish can make you feel and even look younger.
This should be a lifestyle we all strive for but may occasionally fall short of, and in the seemingly unavoidable fast pace society we encounter each day, the effects of aging quickly develop. Aside from the fact that aging will take its natural course whether we wish it or not, there are also environmental elements that we are exposed to at one point or another that speed the process such as sun exposure, smoking, alcohol use, stress, fatigue, and a sedentary lifestyle. Life’s inescapable factors that advance the skin aging process cannot be completely removed, nor can we put a pause on the natural course of aging. The good news is that it can be slowed down using restorative skin care products innovated through the art of compounding.
At Nora Apothecary, we expertly prepare a line of topically applied cosmeceutical products. A cosmeceutical is exactly what you may think it is – the combination of a cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, and pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Biologically active elements are incorporated into the creams, and when applied, deliver nutrients to the skin so that a therapeutic effect is exerted along with a cosmetic effect. Antioxidants, retinol, and certain vitamins have the ability to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals and other environmental factors which may reduce skin inflammation, promote skin repair and regeneration, increase suppleness of the skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles making your skin appear younger and healthier. Using cosmeceuticals may reverse or slow down the signs of intrinsic aging, which is the natural progress of aging, and extrinsic aging, which is caused by the environment.
