Turn Your Skin Care Routine Into A Self-Care Ritual
The spread of COVID-19 has made wearing masks essential. Studies have shown that wearing a mask for a long time increases skin wrinkles and pores. When the rest of the world is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems irrelevant to discuss beauty. Yet, beauty is inextricably linked to our self-care for our own well-being.
Skincare is "more than simply the goods on your bathroom shelf; it's a philosophy that pervades your whole lifestyle, from the food you eat to the clothes you wear." In other words, starting with skin means viewing "beauty" as directly related to your "health and well-being," with less emphasis on concealing your face with cosmetics and more emphasis on treating skin from the inside out.
actiVLayr Making Waves In Korea
For those who are unfamiliar, the standard Korean Beauty regimen consists of at least ten steps. ActiVLayr is Korea's latest collagen trend, it provides fast and easy absorption into skin for skin firming and proven results. Since its launch in Korea last year, actiVLayr has sparked the latest collagen wave in Korea, selling more than 17 million sheets since then and was awarded “2020 Seoul’s Award Excellent Product Award - Innovative Brand”.
ActivLayr Premium Intensive Collagen Film contains an ultra-high concentration of 99.86% of high-quality marine collagen, which is extracted from Hoki Fish Skins, sourced from the deepest areas of the southern and western oceans of New Zealand - world's purest and untouched deep sea.
70% of the human skin is composed of collagen, which is one of the main elements to maintain the firmness and smoothness of the skin. When a person reaches the age of 25, the rate of collagen decline starts exceeding the rate of creation, and the skin will gradually lose its elasticity, with issues such as wrinkles and dull skin emerging. Because of the emergence of COVID-19, wearing masks has become mandatory. Wearing a mask for an extended length of time, according to study, generates small wrinkles around our faces!
Studies have shown that nano-collagen can be absorbed through skin better than edible collagen, where it can penetrate directly into the collagen fibre layer of the dermis without passing and getting loss through the digestive system. A direct and effective way to repair the fibrous subcutaneous layer of damaged skin, restores and exerts its repairing and rejuvenating effect to the skin.
The ActivLayr technology has been shown to effectively and efficiently deliver a broad range of active collagen ingredients directly into the intradermal and subdermal regions of the skin. The method of application by placing the product onto wet skin like a mask enables the collagen and bioactive ingredients to be absorbed quickly and efficiently to reduce wrinkles and to repair and protect the skin.
