If you want to be healthy, there are many things you can do to achieve this. Good exercise, a good diet, proper rest and a positive attitude about life are important practices for good health.
And if you want the world to see how healthy you are, there are of course many ways that you can show your health to the world.
The most obvious way is of course your skin.
So, how do we keep our skin healthy?
One popular, new method is the use of cosmeceuticals. That may sound like a strange word. According to Robert A Schwartz, MD, Professor and Head of Dermatology at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School, “Cosmeceuticals represent a marriage between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.”
He notes that, “Like cosmetics, (they) are topically applied, but they contain ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin.”
They don’t just work on making your skin look pretty, blemish free and all that. Rather they improve skin appearance by putting healthy nutrients in the skin. Or, in other words, cosmeceuticals make the skin look healthy because it IS healthy.
If cosmeceuticals is a new word for you – and perhaps a new concept – then let me add another important term, in this discussion about skin care.
That’s Chiral Technology.
When you use natural ingredients for skin care, you Men’s grooming still need to make sure that your skin can use what it’s being ‘fed’.
Chiral technology is simply a process of purification. It extracts the purest form of positive molecules and eliminates the negative molecules (that can cause damage and irritation) out of the natural ingredients you use. It thus provides the proper fit onto the skin’s receptors for repairing and maintaining healthy skin with less irritation.
It seems to be one of the newest concepts and practices for healthy skin and healthy skin care.
So, how does Chirality (as it’s called) work?
Chiral molecules are exactly the same in every way. Like your hands, they are perfect mirror images of each other. So, in a way, they are exact opposites! An example is amino acids. Our body uses just left-handed amino acids (you will notice on your protein formulations words like L-proline). The right handed ones are out there in the world, but the body cannot use them.
So, what does this have to do with skin care?
The body’s receptors are all chiral. They are like gloves made to fit only over the correct hand. Thus a good skin care product should be formulated in a chirally correct way. Or in other words, the product would be a proper fit on to the skin’s receptors. If the product is chirally correct, then any skin treatments, whether from professionals or at home, would provide the most effective therapy for repairing the skin.
