Untangling Stem Cell Skincare

Stem cell skincare is the latest technology in the cosmetics industry.  There are basically three kinds of stem cells: Human, Animal, and Plant.  Our most readily available supply of human stem cells are our own which can be extracted from our fat, bone marrow, or plasma.  I’m sure you’ve heard of the vampire face lift, also called Micro-needling with PRP.  This is a procedure where your own blood is drawn, spun down in a centrifuge to divide red cells from plasma, and then the plasma is infused into your skin by way of a micro-needling device which breaks the surface of the skin. This procedure should only be done at a reputable medical spa.  It is a very effective treatment to stimulate collagen production and requires no downtime.  Remember, injury stimulates the body’s healing army as I discussed in my blog about how exercise breaks down to build and repair.

Stem cell skincare stimulates collagen production.  Collagen is the structural protein in connective tissue in the body.  Collagen provides cushioning,  structure, and healing.  As we age we produce less of it and it is harder to stimulate production.  The loss of collagen is why we get wrinkles.  As the collagen padding under the top layer of the skin flattens out there is no structural support.   Infusing stem cells into the skin will help with the process of stimulating collagen production and restoring this padding under the skin to smooth and reduce wrinkles.

Plant Stem Cells

Plant Stem Cells are found in plants.  No duh, you might be saying.  What you need to know is that plant stem cells are unique in a few important ways.  Plant stem cells are innately undifferentiated.  This means they are not specified and have the potential to grow into any organ, tissue, or cell in the body.  They also have the ability to self-renew so they never undergo the aging process but immortally give rise to new cells.  Oh, to be a plant!  Interesting also is that plant stem cells are adept at withstanding environmental stress.  This makes total sense since, unlike animals, they cannot move to get away from their environment.  They have to withstand harsh external influence and they preserve life with their stem cells. Have I got your attention now?

Using plant stem cell skincare products can be extremely beneficial to stimulate, regenerate, and restore the collagen in our skin.  They are available in many products but one that I have found and especially love is made with Rose stem cells.  It is a beautiful pink gel.  The color is associated with femininity, softness, and romance.  The smell of roses is so fresh and sweet I feel beautiful just smelling the product.

In the Pink of Health

I know you’ve heard the saying ” In the Pink of Health” which means “top form”.  This gel mask will have your skin in top form.  Here’s what I do with it, then I’ll tell you what it is and how to get it. Otherwise, you might not pay attention and just rush off to buy it!  First, I keep it in my refrigerator.  That way it stays chilled which is especially wonderful in the hot summer heat.  I use it a couple of times a week but more often if I have a special occasion.  I like to leave it on a long time even though you can benefit from an application of only a few minutes.  You can also leave it on overnight if you want.

Since I am a jogger I put it on after cleansing my face and before I leave for my jog.  I will leave it on longer if I’m not putting on makeup.  The best is it is the mask that no one knows you’re wearing because it is clear and shiny.  Your skin tightens and smoothes and looks beautiful while you have it on.  It hydrates, smoothes, evens texture, and brightens the skin. When you rinse it off your skin looks refreshed and glowing.  I highly recommend an application before putting on makeup for a special occasion.

Tah-Dah!

Here it is.  Check it out on Amazon, who has the best price at $35.  The retail website price is $75 and Sephora has it at $52, but I get mine from  Amazon.

The product utilizes five rose plant stem cells.  It will improve the look and vitality of your skin. I won’t recommend anything I haven’t personally used myself and believe produces significant results.  I am not saying it will fill in deep wrinkles and erase 20 years but with use over time you will see a subtle improvement.  You will, however, see a significant improvement in the overall quality and appearance of your skin.   A rose is a rose is a rose!
