Save your skin! Learn the correlation between the skin and its circadian rhythm
July 29, 2021
There are so many factors that affect our skin health: lack of sleep, diet, UV light, genetics. But, all these factors can even disrupt our day/night rhythms, which are known as “circadian rhythms”. The disruption can cause rough, bumpy skin as well as dullness. To correct the effects for soft, smooth supple skin, homeostasis needs to be restored and the cells need to be resynchronized ⏰ Oh! Say hello to your CLOCK genes: these genes that need to be regulated in order to maintain the skin's circadian rhythm.
To fully understand these different rhythms and how they affect the skin, I have to talk about the science behind it! Chronobiology is the study of periodic phenomena in living organisms (a common one we talk about is our “internal clock”). Did you know another word for our internal clock is circadian rhythms? It’s the natural process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle that repeats every 24 hours!
Now why is this important? I’m glad you asked! It’s because chronobiology is a major regulator for circadian homeostasis (the perfect balance to give you perfect, healthy skin). So, while you may refer to your “internal clock” as your physical sleep/wake cycle, the skin also has its own chronobiological rhythms.
The problem is the skin’s rhythms can be desynchronized (kinda like your sleep schedule when you stay up too late - or when you experience jetlag) and this is often due to a variety of factors:
In order to protect all biological processes, the cells need to be resynchronized to properly display healthy, radiant, supple skin.
Active ingredients like TALADVANCE™ help to resynchronize the skin circadian rhythm and restore radiance and healthy skin. It offers epidermal and dermal protection with immediate to long-term radiance and suppleness of the skin.
