Truths and Myths in Skin Care

Truths and Myths in Skin Care …
 
This article is written by Jim Knut Larsson, President and Founder of Knutek.
 
I have found through the many years I have been in the beauty industry that so much of what is claimed are myths if not straight out lies so I have found it necessary to write this article to identify the most obvious truths and myths:
 
Fundamental principles that have been proven scientifically:
 
If a cream, serum or ingredient is not a nano formulation (less than 800 nano meter particle size) and/or does not have a carrierin them, only trace amount of the actives will penetrate through the skin barrier with minuscule results!
 
All of Knutek’s products have been formulated either as nano serums (Knutek is the only skin care manufacturer on the planet that are using nano technology to produce skin care products) and/or with a carrier for maximum penetration and effectiveness!
 
As an example, we are using MSM as a carrier to open up the skin barrier.

The function of MSM. Ref. Harry’s Cosmeticology, the “bible” in cosmetic chemistry:

“Certain solvents, of which DMSO (MSM) is the most potent, not only penetrate rapidly, but greatly enhance the penetration of substances dissolved in them!”

In other words, MSM opens the skin barrier and allows for much deeper penetration of other active ingredients.

MSM (Organic Sulfur, aka the “beauty mineral”) is also an  Anti-inflammatory, Anti-microbial, Healing Agent and is responsible to form the flexible link between cells.

In other words, MSM feeds the formation of collagen and elastin for a reduction in lines and wrinkles.

Consequently, MSM enhances tissue pliability and encourages the repair of damaged skin. 
 
Does moisturizer creams reduce lines and wrinkles?
 
Yes or no, by far most skin care companies when they claim a “20%” reduction in lines and wrinkles are referring to the fill-up of pores and plumping up of the skin with moisturizing ingredients. This does not cause any real reduction in lines and wrinkles as they will reappear within 48 hours after you stop using the cream. Hence, most moisturizing creams are not treatments but just temporary cosmetics.

In order to really reduce lines and wrinkles, the cream must have scientifically proven ingredients that will stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin and be a nano serum and/or to be dissolved in a carrier, see above!
 
In order to remove lines and wrinkles you need to challenge the skin like you challenge muscles at the gym. The great breakthrough I had was to create protocols and products that will exercise the skin like you exercise a muscle to cause reduction in lines and wrinkles for a great beautification of the skin. It is called “Dermacycling™”.

You will cycle the skin through a challenge (“trauma”) phase for 4 weeks and a “Healing and Nourishing” face for 4 weeks and then start the cycle again.

During the “trauma” phase you would do “MicrodermaPeel” facials using microdermabrasion and Glycolic Acid (8% in creams used daily by client, “Alpha” creams produced by Knutek) to gently remove top layers of skin in order to trigger the healing mechanism for the body and to produce stem cells to grow back new skin during the “Healing and Nourishing” phase.

This will cause a great beautification of the skin over an eight week cycle!
 
Glycolic Acid has been proven to stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin in the skin to remove lines and wrinkles, you will find Glycolic Acid and MSM in the Alpha + MSM and in the Alpha-Pep Creams with peptides from Knutek!
 
Glycolic Acid is superior to Retinol in skin care, take cod liver oil daily to provide the skin and body with vitamin A!

Putting dead stem cells on the skin will do absolutely nothing to the skin as it will have no action!
 
Plant derived growth factors  are only functional in plants and have no action in skin care!
 
Copper was tested in England to have very little action. In fact, researchers found that it would speed up the aging process!
 
Putting dead collagen on the skin have no action at all for two reasons: 1. It is dead, 2. the collagen molecule is too big to even penetrate the skin barrier! Collagen is also extracted from animal tissue!
 
There is no such thing as “organic” skin care! What is that? “Organic” can only be used for food produce as it means that the produce was grown without pesticides and herbicides.

The only thing we can talk about in skin care is whether ingredients are derived from plants or not.

The fact that an ingredient is extracted from a plant does not mean that it is good for the skin. Actually, it could be highly poisonous and damaging to skin! What is important is the ingredient’s benefit to the skin whether it is plant derived or not. (Also see FDA.gov/cosmetics)
 
Non-surgical facelifts can only be done effectively by using electrical and light stimulation in order to reach deep tissues and to re-educate the underlying muscle. No topical would be able to lift the face, however, a topical may tighten the skin with some result!
 
Ultrasound and Radio Frequency machines tighten the skin and remove fat tissue and are not as effective as Microcurrent/LED Light machines to perform non-surgical facelifts. However, they work great together for great results!
 
Knutek has some of the best machines on the market to perform these protocols!
 
Acid Peels can destroy the sweat glands, sebaceous glands and the melanin on your face. Now, your skin and flesh on your face can no longer get rid of waste that will cause a toxic build up in the lower layers of the skin causing premature aging and bumps.
 
Some estheticians at my workshops have been complaining about having “active skin” with bumps underneath the skin they cannot get rid of. I always asks; “have you done acid peels?” the answer is always yes!
 
Destruction of melanin as the “machine” in the skin that produces electricity through photosynthesis and provides protection for the skin from burn and, vitamin D that is produced from UVB radiation and cholesterol, causes devastation of the cells and opens the body for cancer and osteoporosis!
 
The number one rule in skin care is “Do No Harm”!
 
The most common causes of oily and dry skin is the use of formulations designed for oily and dry skin! A formula for dry skin is to add oil to the skin.

This will shut down the production of sebum as the natural conditioner of the skin.

So, underneath all that oil the skin becomes drier and drier and vice versa with formulations for oily skin that will remove the oils and stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more oil.

This sets up a vicious cycle for the client where the product they are using is the cause of their problem.

Sebum also provides the skin with an acid mantel to prevent bacteria to enter into the skin and body. The release of sebum from the glands also helps to clean the pores.
 
Knutek’s products are designed to bring the sebaceous glands back into balance and work the way nature intended.
 
Exfoliation may be the most important basic step in skin care. Exfoliation prunes the skin like pruning a plant and allow all the nourishment to go to the new skin cells and it speeds up the skin renewal process.

How can you put a cream or serum on the face without doing the exfoliation?

Without the exfoliation, the cream will slow down the skin renewal process and cause premature aging to the skin.
 
Knutek has the Omega Peel, an incredible product that does exfoliation and extraction in one step and it makes the skin Brighter, Smoother and Silkier in 90 seconds!
 
Oxygen and ATP are the ingredients that combine in the “Krebs” cycle into the mitochondria to provide the energy to the cell and, in turn, to the body!

Knutek is the only company in the world with the nano serum Oxygen Plasma that delivers oxygen to the cells.

Microcurrent increases the ATP in the cells with more than 500%. This combination has a huge impact in reducing the age of the body and skin as more energy is released into the cells and the body!
 
The SPF factor was introduced by Hawaiian Tropics in the sixties as a way for tourists coming to Hawaii to know that they could be out in the Sun for 30 minutes (SPF 30) around noon without getting a burn!

The SPF factor only tells you how effective the cream is to prevent UVB radiation to hit the skin. However, UVB radiation does not give you lines and wrinkles.

UVA radiation is what gives you lines and wrinkles, so there is no relationship to the SPF factor with regards to preventing lines and wrinkles!

What you need is protection from UVA which also penetrates through windows and cloud cover.
 
Knutek introduced UVAPRO to protect the skin from UVA but to allow UVB as UVB is needed for the formation of vitamin D and to stimulate the melanin to produce electricity!
 
Science has now proven that 30 minutes of UVB (Burning) sun exposure per day is essential to vaccinate the skin against skin cancer and to avoid softening of bone tissue (osteoporosis) due to Vitamin D deficiency.
 
“Rickets Disease”, “Osteoporosis”, “Multiple Sclerosis” and certain forms of Cancers can be caused by lack of sun exposure (UVB radiation) and the resulting lack of vitamin D from the daily usage of traditional “Sun Blocks”!

Importance Of Hyaluronic Acid Serum And Skin Care

Importance Of Hyaluronic Acid Serum And Skin Care
So many skincare ingredients have come and gone, but hyaluronic acid is one skincare ingredient that has engraved its name in the sands of time in the skincare industry. Offering multiple benefits for all skin types, hyaluronic acid is also known for its great anti-aging qualities.
So just how does this superstar ingredient work its magic to improve the skin?
Let’s explore…
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan (polysaccharide) produced by your body, making it a great choice for natural skincare. It is also known as hyaluronan and is present in connective tissue all over the human body.
So why is hyaluronic acid so important?
The wonder of this skincare ingredient lies in its awesome ability to retain moisture. It’s considered to have more capacity to hold moisture more than any other natural or synthetic polymer. A gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water! Awesome right?
This is important when it comes to aging because one of the signs of a youthful skin is the moisture it contains. Our skin loses moisture as we age, resulting in a loss of pliability and firmness.
Hyaluronic acid can enhance your skin’s moisture content and at the same time, strengthen the outer layer of your skin. A healthy outer skin has a supple look, feels softer, and smoother —all the signs of a youthful skin!
However, that’s not all you get with hyaluronic acid. There are added benefits!
We know that just about everything, from acne to sun damage, etc. can result in damaging the outer layer of the skin. So repairing your skin with skin-identical ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, can go a long way toward fixing, or at least lessening, those issues.
Hyaluronic acid is helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture isn’t a problem for oily skin, and it’s mild enough that it isn’t a problem for sensitive skin.
Hyaluronic acid also gives antioxidant defense against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.
How To Get The Best Out Of Hyaluronic Acid
Serum form is one of the best ways to topically use hyaluronic acid. We highly recommend the BiON Pure Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum.
BiON serum which contains an industry leading 1% of pure hyaluronic acid can be applied directly to damp skin or added to other skincare products to give an added moisturizing boost.
Containing key ingredients such as Purified Water, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, BiON Hyaluronic serum works as a great moisturizer all throughout the skin.
It carries as much as 1000 times its weight in moisture to the skin and works to expand the skin cells, drawing in moisture from the air and locking in the moisture to hydrate the skin beneath the surface. This permeates sagging areas, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and ultimately results in a plumper, younger-looking skin.
BiON serum uses natural moisture and doesn’t rely on greasy lotions or ointments that may cause breakouts.
BiON pure hydration hyaluronic acid serum is the best investment you can make to get that fresh, supple, young-looking, wrinkle-free skin you’ve always wanted

MSM & Skin Care

MSM & Skin Care

In the past decade, a small group of highly beneficial “superfoods” have become popular not only for their long lasting health benefits, but for the skin benefits they provide as well. Foods such as cabbage and broccoli are two well-known superfoods that have been shown to soften skin while also keeping it hydrated and healthy. The reason behind this is a result of the presence of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) in these foods, which can also be found in a small selection of meats and other produce.

MSM is an organic sulfur compound found only in the very healthiest of foods, meaning that many of us do not get enough of it in our diets. Luckily, the effects of MSM can be felt through the use of topical treatments, such as those by kNutek, meaning that you too can enjoy soft, hydrated skin without changing your diet to accommodate more superfoods.

What can MSM do for you?

When applied topically, MSM has the ability to penetrate multiple layers of skin, allowing it to deeply and thoroughly soften and heal skin. MSM is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, meaning that it is an excellent solution to eczema, psoriasis, acne, and other inflammatory skin diseases. In addition, this useful nutrient also repairs skin legions, which can lead to visibly reduced scarring, as well as quickly healing wounds.

One key feature of MSM that makes it such a miracle for skin is the transformation it puts skin cells through. When MSM comes in contact with skin cells, they become far more absorbent, meaning that they can more effectively absorb and trap hydration, leading to brighter, softer skin.

For those with uneven skin tones or age spots, MSM can also work wonders for you. Many users have reported a reduced number of age spots and hyperpigmentation after regular use of MSM topical treatments, such as those from kNutek.

How can I get the most out of MSM?

The best way to incorporate MSM into your daily beauty routine is through the use of one of kNutek’s highly effective MSM treatments. Available in plasma, serum, toner, cream, cleanser, lotion, as well as in a variety of facemasks, you are sure to find the right MSM solution for you skin after taking a look at kNutek’s Skin Care line available at Skincarebysuzie.com. Skincare by Suzie carries only the best in skin care products, offering a wide array of MSM topical treatments which are sure to give you soften, brighter skin with regular use. Whether you prefer a relaxing MSM face mask at the end of a long day, or highly effective 100 percent Oxygen Plasma solution, with Skincare by Suzie and kNutek’s innovative MSM products, you can start your journey to a brighter looking you.
