Get Your Collagen Glow On!

What is collagen?

You might have noticed it as a key ingredient in your night cream or nutritional supplement. But what is collagen exactly and why is this superstar ingredient so sought after?

Collagen makes up more than half the total volume of protein found in the skin and is what makes it strong, thick, supple, and smooth. Collagen gives the skin its structure and contributes to 60% of the skin’s moisturizing processes, giving the skin firmness and volume. All signs of aging are contributed to the loss of collagen; first signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, deeper stagnant lines, and loss of elasticity. To improve overall signs of aging it is important to focus on the quality and quantity of collagen.

Our body’s natural collagen production begins to slow down as we age. We can thank this generative process for signs of aging, such as wrinkles, glycation, and sagging. Other lifestyle factors such as a high sugar diet, excessive alcohol intake, smoking and excessive sun exposure can speed up the depletion of collagen. We lose 1,5% of our collagen per year from age 25; therefore, it is vital to incorporate a collagen rich product from the age of 25 years and up.

What is special about QMS collagen?

Collagen is one of the best natural skin care ingredients available. Our advanced collagen serums are the foundation of QMS and is still considered one of the most iconic innovations in the beauty sector. We use the highest-grade skin identical collagen for ultimate results. Our collagen stays in the skin for longer and does not deteriorate. It improves moisture by 245% after just 8 weeks and is the best moisture retaining ingredient that exists.

We use a patented and exclusive delivery system and Neotech A15 ® technology to reintroduce collagen into the skin and replace lost collagen. The unique collagen-hyaluronic acid complex allows for instant and long-term results. Each collagen serum has a 12-hour effect with only one application providing perfect moisture that lasts all day. Matrixyl 3000 is combined with Neotech A15 ® to strengthen the skin structure from within by sending signals to fibroblasts to produce more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. All these highly technological actives have been scientifically proven to:

  • Dramatically increase the levels of moisturisation and elasticity.
  • Soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduce the appearance of uneven skin texture, smoothing the skin surface and diminishing the appearance of pores.

This revolutionary facial care system, which addresses the underlying causes of aging was developed by Dr. med. Erich Schulte, according to the scientific principles of cell rejuvenation and benefit every skin type in recovering its natural capacity in the fight against visible signs of aging.

What is the meaning of ‘EpiGen’?

EpiGen is taken from the word ‘epigenetics’ which is a science we are using in skincare. It is a way in which we can access the skin’s DNA and reformat any environmental factors that have influenced the skin.

Epigenetics affects how genes (DNA) produces proteins (building blocks of life). Aging leads to chemical modification of our genes and can turn certain genes off or alter their efficacy over time. Epigenetics can reverse the genes state and keep the good while eliminating the bad; therefore, slowing down aging.

QMS Medicosmetics is at the forefront of this technology using Epigenetic-Peptide to repair and protect our DNA, offer antioxidant protection against free radicals, regenerates and restructures the epidermis and restores the skin’s protective barrier – ultimately reversing signs of aging and promoting youthful radiance.

Epigenetic science to help maintain skin cells active for longer. Over time, internal and external factors cause our skin to turn certain cellular activities on or off, which affects the performance of our cells and ultimately the appearance of our skin. Epigenetics re-activates silenced cellular functionality and restores our skin cells.

Our EpiGen range is an anti-pollution system of skincare promoting youthful radiance. It is highly recommended for clients who lead an active lifestyle, enjoy spending time outdoors and live in Urban areas.

How to choose the right skin care

Know your skin type:

Oily Skins are characterized by large pores and is more prone to congestion such as blackheads and whiteheads. African and Asian skins are naturally oilier and can easily develop a shine. The good news is that oily skins do not develop wrinkles as fast as dry skins but tend to be more acne-prone.

  • Choose Purifying Range to refine and decongest pores, reduce oily shine and prevent acne breakouts.

Dry skins are characterized by fine pores and often feels tight and might appear tired and dull. These skins might also develop dilated capillaries with flakiness and sensitivity if it is out of balance. Wrinkles tend to form faster the dryer the skin is.

  • Choose Moisturizing Range to replenish lost oil and moisture from the skin while increasing protection to prevent moisture loss and sensitivity. The skin feels soft and signs of dullness disappear.

Combination skins have an oily T-zone where pores are enlarged and possibly clogged while the cheeks tend to get tight, dry and dull.

Know your skin conditions:

Skin conditions change throughout our lifetime with age, seasons, and lifestyle choices. After selecting the major range for your skin type, it is time to look at your skin conditions. Combining the below ranges compliment and enhance the results and can make your skin care specific to your needs. To find out your skin conditions, a good tip is to ask yourself: “how does my skin look and feel?” Pay attention to:

  • Radiance and glow: Does your skin have a glow or is it tired? Energizing Range will stimulate the skin’s circulation and oxygenation to give a healthy and radiant glow to tired skins.
  • Pigmentation & skin colour: Is your skin evenly pigmented or do you have dark marks? Select Purifying Range for pigmented acne scars or Well Aging Range for sun spots.
  • Skin texture & smoothness: Is my skin smooth to the touch or does it feel rough? If your skin does not look or feel smooth, an exfoliation is what you need to remove those dead skin cells for soft and smooth looking skin. Fruit Acid Peel once a week is your answer!
  • Sensitivity and vascularity: Does your skin get red and irritated easily? Improve your skin’s immune system by selecting suitable products from the Calming Range. If your skin is hypersensitive, it is recommended to use only products from the Calming Range.
  • Firmness and volume: Do you have fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging? Are you over the age of 35? Then Well Aging Range is for you. This comprehensive range targets a wide range of signs of aging. Its focus is to prevent and to reverse existing signs of aging.
  • Special areas and needs: Don’t forget to look at the eye contour and lips. Specialized products slow down appearance of aging. Always use an advanced sun protection. We love Your Daily Sun Protection Cream SFP30 which is lightweight and applies beautifully. Wonderful option for African and Asian skins too.

Eye and Lip Care

Q&A

Do I really need to use an eye cream?

Yes. The skin around the eyes is much thinner and delicate compared to the rest of the facial skin. This means, signs of aging appear faster and more drastically. From the age of 25, fine lines become visible which develops into wrinkles and deep expression lines such as crow’s feet. As we age, the circulation decrease, and this also leads to puffiness, bags and dark circles that make us appear tired and aged. Eye cream formulations select specialized ingredients to target specific concerns but that are delicate enough to be used around the eye contour.

What can I do to help with puffiness and dark circles around the eyes?

Nothing beats a good night’s sleep and healthy living. However, sometimes life throws a curveball and stress affects the quality of sleep and lifestyle. If you struggle with puffiness or dark circles, select an eye cream that stimulates the circulation and detoxification around the eye contour. We recommend the Epigen Depuff Pollution Shield Eye Serum and Advanced Collagen Eye Lift Sheet Mask for superior results. These products have a cooling and refreshing feeling while depuffing and detoxifying the skin around the eyes from excess fluids and toxins.

What can I do to improve the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes?

Stem cell regeneration allows for more advanced results. Combined with deep penetrating & reparative peptides, these powerful ingredient complexes help to stimulate collagen, elastin and natural hyaluronic acids to plump out fine line and deep wrinkles as well as tighten and firm droopy top eyelids. We recommend Advanced Cellular Alpine for demanding and mature skin around the eyes. For sensitivity, opt for the gentle yet effective Intensive Eye Care.

Is there anything I can do to reduce the fine lines around the lips?

Vertical lines and loss of elasticity occur due to decrease in Estrogen levels in the skin. You might notice them creep up on you from around the age of 40 years. As aging progress, the skin’s firmness and elasticity decrease and lines deepen. Lip Line Corrector was specially developed for these lines, helping to plump deeply and smooth out the skin. With potent phytosterols, clinical studies haven proven a 35% improvement in wrinkle depth after only 12 weeks.

Tips to care for your skin this summer

How to keep your skin glowing all summer long, prevent breakouts and minimize sun damage:

Warm weather brings a whole heap of skincare-challenges. A solid skincare routine should be applicable to all seasons and climates. However, there are a couple of changes to consider when transitioning from winter to summer.

  1. Your skincare routine might have to be a little more lightweight. The heat and humidity of summer means you can swop out a milk cleanser in favour of a gentle gel cleanser. We recommend our EpiGen Pollution Detox Cleansing Gel or Purifying Cleansing Gel.

  3. Adopt a dual-purpose moisturiser or a moisturizer that easily and quickly absorbs into the skin. Thicker moisturisers can lead to clogged pores, inflammation and acne when used during humid and hot conditions. We recommend our Active Glow SPF15 (3 in 1 product), EpiGen Pollution Defense or Soft-Focus Pore Refining Cream.

  5. Do not stop moisturizing completely. The extra layer of sweat on your face does not count as a moisturiser. Despite the weather being hot and humid you still need to moisturise. Moisturisers re-establish the protective barrier of the skin to protect the skin from harmful pollutants and chemicals and prevents further irritation or dryness. A lightweight texture will help keep the outer layer of the skin nourished without feeling too heavy on the skin.
  6. Invest in a powerful antioxidant serum. Antioxidants helps to fight free radicals and oxidative stress. The sun produced massive amounts of photons and is the number one accelerator of premature aging. Use a serum between cleansing and moisturizing to detox the skin and protect the skin from harmful environmental factors. We recommend our EpiGen Pollution Detox Day Serum and Intense Energizing Serum.

  8. Add an exfoliation skincare-step. It is important not to over-exfoliate which can lead to inflammation and transepidermal water loss and to use an exfoliator that is not going to cause sensitivity to the sun. Alpha hydroxy fruit acids are scientifically proven as the most effective exfoliator to remove dead skin cells, even out skin tone and complexion and open up blocked pores to remove oil and dirt that results in acne. We recommend our Active Exfoliants and Fruit Acid Peel for a safe and effective exfoliation without causing trauma to the skin.
  9. Do not forget to hydrate. Hydration is always important for your skin but even more so in summer. All skin cells need water to function optimally and all signs of aging is linked to a loss of moisture and collagen in the skin. During summer the weather conditions, climate, and other environmental factors accelerate dehydration and can leave the skin feeling tight and irritated. We recommend our advanced Collagen Serums or Ultra Hydration Serum to quench thirsty skin.
  10. After sun protection must have, is a mask. Masks provide instant results and creates a unique wellness experience at home. We recommend using a mask that is going to replenish moisture loss, have powerful ingredients with a deep action, calm your complexion from sun burnt to sun kissed, alleviate itchy and dry patches, cushion fine lines and make the skin feel soft and smooth. We highly recommend our EpiGen Pollution Rescue Overnight Mask or Intensive Moisturizing Mask.

  12. SPF!!! We have saved the most important and fundamental don’t-leave-home-without-it tip for last! It is important to use sun protection all year round, especially during summer when the burning UVB rays are much stronger and the aging UVA rays maintains constant throughout the seasons. Applying a broad-spectrum sun cream with SPF30 – 50 will keep your skin in optimal condition long-term. We highly recommend our Cellular Sun Shield SPF50 and Your Daily High Protection Sun Cream SPF30 to protect your skin from natural and artificial light.
