Does Skin Have a Mind of its Own?h3>

One would think that skin definitely does have a mind of its own.

If it were up to us, we would all have perfect, flawless complexions and look as if we were ready to stroll down the red carpet at any time. Unfortunately, genetics plays a major role in determining what type of skin we inherit, and it seems totally unfair that we have no say at all! For anyone grieving about their misfortune, the good news is that now more than ever before, there are more methods and products available for achieving and maintaining healthy skin.

Built-In System Regulating The Processes

Function Of The Skin

We’ve also gained greater understanding about the largest organ of our body due to ongoing study by scientists, medical professionals, and pharmaceutical laboratories. This knowledge has culminated in better skin care products as well as how and when to apply them so our face receives the maximum benefit. For example, every living organism operates on “circadian rhythm”, which is a built-in system regulating the processes of that organism. We have all heard about our body clock, and there are certain times of the day that our body functions better at one thing compared to another. Some examples are, generally speaking, people are most alert at 10:00 a.m., people sleep the deepest at 2:00 a.m., and melatonin is secreted between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m.

Organs in our body also have a 24-hour memory, and the skin is no exception.

The function of the skin is determined by its needs. During the day, our skin shields us from damaging effects of sun, wind, pollution, etc. It functions in a protective state, similar to armour. During the night, our skin circulates necessary nutrients and mutates, or regenerates, skin cells. While we sleep, our skin functions in repair mode.

Because of this knowledge, any skincare regime instructs us to put on creams that support its vital functions. Moisturizers in the morning are full of boosters like SPF to guard against the sun; hyaluronic acid, which holds up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture; and amino acids, which help promote good skin health. At night, moisturizers are full of retinol, Vitamin A, and niacinimide to repair any damage that the skin has received during the day.

Producing Vibrant, Healthy Skin

Line of Skincare Products

Prime cell mitosis occurs when skin cells divide and regenerate. Whether we are sleeping or awake, this process takes place in our bodies between 11:00 p.m. and midnight. The new generation of skin care products understands this function and combine glycolic acids in their nighttime creams to aid in the cells regeneration.

Dr. Cory Torgerson offers a fantastic line of skin care products at his facial cosmetic clinic in downtown Toronto. Vivier products are available only in the clinics of authorized physicians or healthcare professionals because their products contain more active ingredients than are allowed to be sold by pharmacies (as per Health Canada’s guidelines). This means that, without exception, they will have more of a positive impact on your skin. Vivier’s line includes cleansers, hydrating and exfoliating creams, wrinkle correction, and retinol creams. Although our skin may have a mind of its own, Vivier skin care products partner with the skin’s functions to produce vibrant, healthy skin.

Dr. Torgerson’s office also sells the top-of-the-line new European brand, Teoxane. Teoxane RHA cosmeceuticals skincare differs from Vivier in some of the benefits and skin issues that it targets. It has cross-linked hyaluronic acid molecules, which provide dramatically increased hydration for the skin.
