Younique Amazing Skin - Information

Collagen for the skin

We have large amounts of collagen in our bodies, where up to 70% of all collagen is found in the skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein consisting of amino acids in long rows that provide firmness, structure and elasticity. The body's own collagen production reaches its peak around the age of 25, then it decreases with increasing age. When collagen production decreases, we begin to see signs of aging such as wrinkles, dry skin, fine lines, etc. Younique contains 2.5 grams of collagen per serving package from the brand Verisol®. Verisol® consists of bioactive collagen peptides of bovine origin. Verisol® collagen has a clinically documented effect of increasing skin firmness and smoothing wrinkles.

MSM

MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane and is a natural organic source of sulphur. Sulfur is a mineral and is found in abundant amounts in the body with the greatest concentration in skin, hair and nails but also in bones, muscles and joints. Sulfur is an important part of collagen synthesis in the body and is thus important for the skin. Younique contains OptiMSM® which is an ultra-distilled MSM of the purest quality. OptiMSM® has a documented effect and makes the skin smoother and gives it more glow!

Silicon

Silicon is a trace element and is found naturally in the body. Silicon is a building block in collagen and thus has an important function for the structure of the skin. Silicon is also a component of keratin and elastin, two other proteins important for the skin. Just like collagen, the content of silicon unfortunately decreases with increasing age. Younique contains natural silicon from bamboo extract.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a body substance that is abundant in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a special molecule in such a way that it possesses incredible moisture-binding properties. A hyaluronic acid molecule can bind moisture up to 1000 times its own weight! Despite the name, hyaluronic acid is not an acid but a sugar molecule. Unfortunately, the body's own production of hyaluronic acid also decreases with increasing age.
