antioxidant = renight
Our skin, the protective barrier between us and the outside world, comes up against oxidative damage caused by internal and external factors every day. Through a vitamin cocktail of natural-origin ingredients, combined with a precious blend of deeply nourishing vegetal oils, Renight acts globally on our skin’s antioxidant mechanisms, protecting the cellular membranes and increasing the skin’s defense, promoting skin repair. Wake up every morning to youthful, glowing skin.
Your Skin & Free Radicals
We often hear about the harmful effects of free radicals, but what are they and why are they so bad for us? Free radicals are usually produced by our skin and body cells as a natural consequence to physiological processes like breathing or digestion. They are “unstable” molecules characterized by the presence of an unpaired electron in the nucleus of a cell. In order to restore their balance, they capture electrons from other cellular structures, rendering them unstable and reactive. This creates a chain reaction which is potentially harmful to the organism as the bonds between cells are repeatedly broken. Free radical damage can be worsened by factors like the sun, smoke, pollution, and an unhealthy diet, accelerating the aging process and affecting our skin’s appearance. Fortunately, humans are equipped with natural antioxidant systems to fight the free radical damage. However, when the stressors are too intense, our defenses leave skin dry and depleted. Thankfully our body undergoes reparative actions at night, giving us the perfect opportunity to take extra care of our skin as we rest. So don’t forget to lather on your favourite night cream before you call it a day - it’s the best time to do it.
Our busy lifestyles are full of ongoing stresses and responsibilities which means that occasionally, we cut into our bedtime here and there. But it’s no biggie right? Well, no. As a matter of fact, sleep deprivation is proven to negatively affect your health and quality of life. It can cause moodiness, memory troubles, and problems thinking and focusing. Chronic sleep loss may lead to weight gain, high blood pressure and a weakened immune system, and may even cause you to be at a higher risk of developing cancer. Getting a good sleep routine down is key to improving the effects of sleep deprivation and your overall health. There are a few simple ways to do that. You can start by setting a consistent sleep schedule and training your internal biological clock to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. That way you can also budget the time needed for a good night’s rest. The average person requires 7-8 hours of sleep a night to feel rested, so make time.
Certified organic Goji berry oil, hydrolyzed tomato and macadamia oil deeply nourish skin while fighting harmful oxidative damage. Goji berry oil, derived from the Tibetan evergreen’s bright red berries, is high in antioxidants, rich in vitamin E, betacarotene and oligoelements such as selenium, manganese and zinc. It is the chosen hero ingredient of the Renight line, along with hydrolyzed tomato extract and pure vitamin E. Lycopene, obtained from the extract of the tomato skin, is a notable carotenoid that is both sustainable and pure, thanks to the bio-liquefaction extraction process that avoids the use of damaging chemical solvents. Precious oils complement and synthesize the antioxidant actions while providing necessary nourishment for the skin. Macadamia nut oil, Babassu and Jojoba oils offer nourishing sensorial textures that are light and therefore suitable to all skin types.
Set regular pre-bedtime rituals and create a sleep-inducing environment. Taking a warm bath or meditating every night are great rituals to incorporate into your sleep routine. Using essential oils like lavender and dimming the lights before bed create sleep-inducing environments that are soothing and calming. Try not to stimulate yourself before its time to wind down - avoid heavy late night meals, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and electronics before bed. Regular exercise initiates changes in energy and body temperature that can promote a solid night’s sleep, so staying active during the day will pay off at night. Strong mental associations between your bed and sleep will also lead to a healthier sleep routine. Try to reserve your bed for sleep only, and maybe one other thing.
