To help keep your skin healthy and younger looking

Water. A daily intake of one and a half to two liters of water (6-8 glasses) helps to maintain the body in general, well hydrated and avoid skin dryness (our skin is 70% water).

Diet. Eating a balanced diet will help maintain a healthy organism, particularly fruit and vegetables, which are rich in antioxidants that can help to repair damage caused by smoking and the sun's rays.

Exercise. Exercise increases tissue oxygenation, helping to maintain the skin looking young and healthy.

Skin Nutrition. Plazan can rejuvenate and optimize cell synthesis and metabolism by providing them with additional nourishment of essential amino acids ('building blocks').

Skin Hydration. Plazan can optimize epidermis hydration with creams containing moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid and dermis hydration with low-molecular hydrating components. The skin will be softer and firmer.

Skin function. Plazan can provide the skin with active ingredients that improve blood micro-circulation and normalize gland function.

Environmental factors. Our skin will be healthier if we avoid as much as possible overexposure to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, pollution and smoke.

Mayonnaise mask
    for age-specific skin

First apply High-Molecular Plazan (1 ml) to the face, then on top of it apply beaten egg yolk.
Continuously dip fingers in warm water while applying the egg yolk. When the egg yolk mixes with the High-Molecular Plazan a mayonnaise-like mass should be formed.
Keep the mask on for 15-20 minutes before removing with a dry cotton cloth.

After applying any of the above masks it is essential to use a hydrating cream such as those in the Plazan Cream of Silver, Gold or Diamond series.

Skin Structure

Our skin has three main layers - the epidermis (outer), the dermis (middle), the subcutaneous (inner) - all of which have various sub-layers. The epidermis is a layer of constantly regenerating cells that gradually keratinize and flake off as they move from the innermost layer to the outermost. Below this the dermis is a complex layer of elastic and inelastic (elastin and collagen) connective tissue, sweat, oil and scent glands, nerve fibers, hair follicles and blood vessels, all 'cemented' together with a hyaluronic acid gel. The subcutaneous is a layer of fatty tissue with connective fibers, larger blood vessels and nerve fibers.

How does the skin change with age?

Beginning in our late twenties, our body's connective tissue production (collagen and elastin) begins to slow down. What's more, the existing collagen and elastin fibers lose tone and unravel, resulting in poor elasticity and loose and saggy skin . Skin also begins to dry and wrinkles appear as its supportive fat layer (subcutaneous) thins and its ability to retain moisture lessens. In addition, external factors such as the sun's ultraviolet rays, smoking and pollution affect our skin's condition and appearance.

Finally, it must be also considered the quality of the components Plazan use in skin treatment and care. The best and most effective skin care cosmeceuticals are those based on placental cell extracts, not plant or animal sources. Placental cells are 100% compatible with those components found naturally in skin cells so are readily accepted into the biosynthesis processes. Plant extracts are not as readily accepted by our bodies and may create a dependency, requiring an increasing amount of active ingredients to maintain the skin's health as time goes by.
