For the skin to function properly, it must have an adequate supply of oxygen. As we age, the oxygen levels in our skin decline. Studies have shown that even at the age of 25, facial skin can have as little as 30-40% of the oxygen than that of a healthy child or teenager. The decrease of oxygen can result in lack of collagen synthesis (premature aging), impaired cell renewal (dull rough skin), and hyper-pigmentation (age/sun spots). By using Karin Herzog products, we can increase the oxygen levels in the skin to prevent and even reverse these conditions.
How it works
Utilizing a unique stabilization process, the Karin Herzog products are able to deliver oxygen to the deeper layers of the skin, unlike most oxygen products on the market today. Oxygen is contained in the creams in a stabilized liquid form called hydrogen peroxide. Upon contact with the skin, an enzyme called Catalyst, acts to convert the hydrogen peroxide (H202) into two molecules of water and one molecule of oxygen (2 H20 + 02). During this conversion, pressure is created, which forces the oxygen into the skin and delivers the other active ingredients.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “The most dangerous form of skin cancer, these cancerous growths develop when unrepaired DNA damage to skin cells (most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or tanning beds) triggers mutations (genetic defects) that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumors.”
Melanoma typically stems from problems in melanocytes and may appear in the form of a mole and may be a variety of colors including, brown, black, skin tone, blue, or purple. Over 10,000 people from the United States a year die from melanoma.
Melanoma can be treated if caught early but if caught too late, it can be hard to eliminate as it may advance to other parts of the body.
Preventative Actions that Lower Your Risk of Melanoma:
- Stay in the shade
- Don’t burn your skin
- Wear a Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF and reapply throughout the day
- Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure
- Examine your skin head to toe each month following the ABCDE’s
- Avoid tanning beds
- Wear clothes that protect your skin from the sun
