Q&A: Delaying the Signs of Ageing

Q&A: Delaying the Signs of Ageing

Is there any way in which we can delay the signs of ageing and turn back time through just diet and lifestyle alone?

The short answer is ‘Yes, you can’. A healthy lifestyle and diet can most definitely improve the health and quality of the skin, which then results in a delay in the signs of ageing. But you need to recognise that there are limits with this method, and for best results you need to find ways to boost your skin’s health from within. Nutricosmetics are an excellent way to do this. Our Collagen Intravital Plus is specifically formulated to recondition, regenerate, and protect the skin.

What are the main contributing factors of ageing that we bring on ourselves?

Our lifestyle is the main contributor to how our skin ages. Skin reacts to its external environment and our modern-day living is harsh. Environmental factors like the sun, severe wind, seasonal changes, and pollution brings new challenges for your skin to overcome. The QMS EpiGen range has been specifically developed to protect the skin from environmental stress and pollution.

How important are supplements?

Our diet is generally lacking in certain vital minerals and vitamins, and, as we age, absorption also becomes more difficult. Collagen Intravital Plus is a supportive nutritional supplement combining QMS’ unique collagen, multifunctional antioxidants and a highly effective multi-vitamin complex B, C & E to recondition, regenerate and protect the natural skin structure from within.

What have been the biggest scientific breakthroughs in terms of anti-ageing skincare and techniques in QMS?

QMS is based on scientific logic and revolutionised the way we care for the skin. Continually striving to improve delivery systems and techniques to enhance the metabolism of active ingredients for immediate and long-term benefits. Top four breakthroughs are:

  1. The conditioning of natural soluble collagens to be able to penetrate the skin. Collagen is the most important protein in your skin, 65% of the body’s proteins are collagen and they are responsible for the elasticity of the skin. As a trauma and cosmetic surgeon, Dr Erich Schulte researched wound-healing and found collagen to be highly significant. This led him to develop a method to condition natural soluble collagens so that they can be re-absorbed into the epidermis and be applied topically to the skin, thereby allowing skin regeneration.
  2. Stem Cell Technology in our Advanced Cellular Marine & Cellular Alpine designed to support the skin’s own stem cells and enhance the stimulation of new stem cells.
  3. Electro-galvanic transportations (electric micro-current technology) through the skin barrier without destroying the protective functions. This smart formulation is found in Advanced Ion Equalizing System to help boost the skin’s regeneration at night, visibly reducing lines and wrinkles and gives skin a firm and elastic appearance.
  4. Epigenetic science investigates how the environment and stress affects the skin and the ageing process. QMS is at the forefront of this technology; using the most advanced epigenetic protein to strengthens the skin DNA against the environment and pollution.

What is the most effective turn-back-time and anti-ageing regime /treatment short of cosmetic surgery?

For long term results and skin transformation a good skincare system is the foundation to slow down and reverse signs of ageing. An optimum skincare regeneration system needs be rich in collagen. Collagen is critical for the moisturising process; it is the protein that keeps skin’s tone, youth, and elasticity. The skin’s production of collagen decreases as the skin ages, leading to a loss of moisture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With QMS you can help reverse the appearance of ageing by addressing the underlying cause – loss of collagen.

What is the optimum age to start an anti-ageing regime and what can we realistically expect to achieve?

From thirty is a good age to start, as from 25 our collagen production starts to decrease, and if you get into a good regime by 30 then you can take around five years off your age. If you start young you can definitely stay young.
