The most important product you can put on your face every day is SUNSCREEN! We are going to dive into the benefits of SPF, what types you should be using, and why it is essential for every single person every single day. We are sunscreen worshipers over here, and we are excited to convert you all to be religious about your sunscreen too! Why You Need to Protect Your Skin The most asked question for any skin care expert is how to prevent the skin from aging and how to stop the aging process in the skin. What most people do not realize is that 85% of ALL aging in the skin comes from UV exposure. That means only 15% is actually happening from natural decay and delay in the skin. With a percentage that high, it is almost a no-brainer to block and protect the skin from the suns harsh rays to prevent the skin from aging in the skin. While of course having healthy skin and pharmaceutical grade products will only enhance your glow, serums and creams targeting towards aging are not as essential to the prevention of aging as sunscreen is. Serums and creams are just a bonus to keep your journey of hard work to achieve healthy skin for a lifetime going.

The second and most important reason you should be wearing sunscreen daily is to prevent our cells from sun exposure that can lead to skin cancer. Sun exposure is the #1 cause of skin cancer. Constant or excessive UV exposure causes our cellular DNA to mutate or turn into cancer. 95% of the UV ray damage we are being exposed to is UVA rays, also known as our tanning or aging rays that penetrate all layers of our skin. Tanning beds produce 12 times the normal amount of these UVA rays resulting in a speed track to the risk of cancer, increasing your risk of melanoma by 75%! The second ray is the UVB which only affects the upper layers of the epidermis and are what causes a sun burn to the skin. These rays hit the U.S. mainly between 10AM and 4PM from April to October, however they can still burn and damage your skin year round. UV rays are able to penetrate through glass, so using protective measures topically on your skin as well as UV tint on windows will greatly reduce your risk of exposure even if you are indoors. Choosing a Sunscreen When it comes to choosing a sunscreen, we need to look for good-quality ingredients that are blocking both UVA and UVB rays also known as broad spectrum. Be cautious with the use of this term, and look for how much protection your sunscreen is offering. According to skincancer.org, they recommend using one or a combination of: avobenzone, ecamsule, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide, or zinc oxide. There are currently 17 FDA approved ingredients for sun protection which fall into 2 categories: chemical sunscreen and physical sunscreen. Most UV filters are chemical sunscreens which form a thin, protective film on the surface of the skin and absorb the UV rays before it penetrates into the skin.

Physical sunscreens are insoluble particles that reflect UV away from the skin. The best protection comes from a mixture of both chemical and physical to ensure a proper shield from the sun. Also, look for an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 15 up to 30. SPF 15 is able to block 93.6% of all UV rays while SPF 30 is able to block 96.3% of all UV rays. Keep in mind to check your sunscreens required application amount and time between applications to ensure the full protection listed on the bottle. A good sunscreen will only require about 1 ounce or 2 tablespoons to the entire body and about a pea-sized amount to the face and be reapplied every 2 hours or immediately after swimming or sweating. Always, always check your labels to ensure you are investing your dollars towards a sunscreen that will actually protect your skin. For further information on SPF visit skincancer.org

Advanced Drone Technology is a delivery system using specific receptor like ingredients to directly influence targeted skin cells. It works to reverse, repair and prevent future damage at the cellular level.

Advanced Drone Technology is a delivery system using specific receptor like ingredients to directly influence targeted skin cells. It works to reverse, repair and prevent future damage at the cellular level. This advanced system delivers potent active ingredients to quickly provide outstanding results. This webinar dives deep into the science of these ingredients and why everyone should be using them to combat the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity for youthful baby-like skin!

Advanced Drone Technology is the delivery system that uses dual encapsulated super peptides to directly treat targeted areas of our skin cells.  This double encapsulation uses special peptide receptors to actively find and treat targeted skin cells.

For example, the wrinkle filling drone only targets the fibroblast to stimulate glycosaminoglycans, also known as GAGs, to maintain and support the synthesis of collagen elastin and hyaluronic acid. The results are ninety-three percent increase of elasticity and an eighty-two percent increase of firmness in the skin.

There are a few key differences between an Advanced Drone Technologies dual encapsulation and other encapsulated ingredients. Though effective, ingredients with a single encapsulation are more quickly dissolved by the skin and do not have as much time to target and treat the parts of the cells that need the ingredients the most. Our Advanced Drone Technology contains a second protective coating that allows this super peptide to go further into the skin.

This means that it has more time to find its targeted destination and release its active ingredients making this delivery system more concentrated and effective.  Here at GlyMed Plus, we feature two forms of Advanced Drone Technology: Diamond Bright Skin Lightener Diamond Bright Skin Lightener’s drone only targets damaged melanocytes and releases its ingredients to reduce the overproduction of melanin while leaving all other skin cells alone. Wrinkle Remedy The second form of Advanced Drone Technology that we feature is found in our brand-new product. Wrinkle Remedy’s drone specifically targets in neurons to help temporarily inhibit the communication channels for muscle contractions while boosting collagen production, helping to smooth and soften expression lines. Here at GlyMed Plus we are so excited to be able to introduce the power of Advanced Drone Technology to you available in our Wrinkle Remedy and Diamond Bright Skin Lightener products

Inflammation is a condition in which the body reacts to injury, irritation or infection. Characterized by redness, heat, pain and swelling. This is a very common condition that can be prominent in many areas of the skin and body and is often overlooked. Inflammation can be a good response from your body but only if it’s for a short period of time.

What is Inflammation?Inflammation is a condition in which the body reacts to injury, irritation or infection. Characterized by redness, heat, pain and swelling

This is a very common condition that can be prominent in many areas of the skin and body and is often overlooked. Inflammation can be a good response from your body but only if it’s for a short period of time.

Inflammation is part of a natural cycle that signals our immune system to start the healing process when trauma or injury occurs. When a cell is “injured” it releases inflammatory mediators that alert the immune system to send leukocytes (white blood cells) to the site of trauma. White blood cells then release a chemical called Cytokine, which signals cells to produce a natural enzyme that begins to break down substances in the skin, including collagen, elastin and even hyaluronic acid. This enzyme is called Matrix Metalloproteinase (MMPs) and is part of the natural aging system.

The presence of MMPs lead to aging in the skin and if inflammation and MMPs are consistently present it can lead to many issues down the road and have a huge impact on over-all health. Inflammation has been linked to many health and skin issues and if not properly cared for, can spiral into a chronic pattern that can be hard to break.

However, inflammation isn’t always black and white. There’s a lot of components that accompany this condition, such as: terms – which determine the length of time inflammation is present and there are different types of inflammation that are both visible and non-visible.

Acute inflammation is considered “short term” - commonly present after an injury and goes away shortly afterwards.

Examples of this would be a bug big or a small cut.

Chronic inflammation on the other hand is a concern, as it lasts longer and can be a persistent reaction that is causing more damage than helping.

Examples of this would be Psoriasis, Rosacea and Telangiectasia.

Other skin issues associated with inflammation include – pigmentation known as Post inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. This is when discoloration is formed after inflammation was present, commonly seen after an acne lesion.

The goal is to reduce inflammation in the skin and body. This can be achieved many different ways, including: certain ingredients in skincare or through diet and supplements. A consultation should be performed by your physician regarding inflammation in the body.

Ingredients high in Antioxidants will help to fight free radical damage in the body and aid in the repair of the skin.

There are many ingredients that help to reduce inflammation in the skin. A few of our favorites are:

  • Arnica

  • Aloe Vera

  • Chamomile

  • Oat Beta Glucan

  • Astragalus Root

  • Echinacea

  • Ginger

  • Green Tea

  • Horsetail

  • Lavender

  • Nasturtium

  • Resveratrol

  • St. john’s Wort

  • Sulfur

  • Tea Tree

Along with using essential ingredients it is recommended to also use anti-inflammatory practices if possible. Practices like avoiding sun exposure, strenuous exercise and using a cold compress will help to relieve symptoms of inflammation.
