Future-proof your skin from the effects of daily stress

Skin Protection 2018

In our busy and “hyper-connected” world, stress has become an ongoing challenge for many people. Sustained stress affects mind and body in various ways and a recent study confirmed that psychological stress does indeed cause skin barrier function to deteriorate. Cortisol, known as the “stress hormone”, needs no introduction.
Persistently high levels of cortisol can be very damaging to the skin, but when cortisol levels are balanced and in check, the skin reflects this and looks better. The presentation highlights BEL-EVEN™ a new cosmetic ingredient that does just this. By inhibiting the enzyme 11ß-HSD1, BEL-EVEN™ locally rebalances the negative, long-term effects of stress on skin.
