Los daños solares son irreversibles, toma nota este verano:  hidrata y repara la piel con nuestra Rutina DNA REPAIR

Sun damage is irreversible, take note this summer: hydrate and repair the skin with our DNA REPAIR Routine



Today we are going to talk about the damage that the sun causes to the skin, it is not just visible burns.

UVA and UVB rays are types of ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. UVA rays have longer wavelengths and can penetrate deeper into the skin, contributing to premature aging and increasing the risk of skin cancer. UVB rays , with shorter wavelengths, cause damage to the superficial layers of the skin and are responsible for sunburn.

On the other hand, visible light is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive with our eyes and that allows us to see the colors and shapes of objects. Blue light being a part of the visible light spectrum, which has shorter wavelengths and higher energy. It is perceived by our eyes as the color blue and is present in natural sunlight, as well as in many artificial lighting sources, such as the screens of electronic devices (such as mobile phones, computers and televisions) and LED lights.

In nature, blue light from the sun is important for regulating our circadian rhythm, which is our sleep-wake cycle. However, excessive exposure to artificial blue light, especially before bed, can negatively affect sleep quality and cause eye strain.

To mitigate the possible negative effects of artificial blue light, there are some measures that can be taken, such as reducing exposure before bed, using night light modes on electronic devices, and, if necessary, wearing glasses with filters to block the light. blue.

Finally, infrared (IR) radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths longer than visible light, but shorter than microwaves. Infrared radiation is not visible to our eyes, but we can perceive it as heat.

In terms of exposure, the infrared radiation present in sunlight can also affect the skin and objects at a heat level, although it does not cause direct damage to tissues, as UVA and UVB rays do.

How can we help our skin this summer and prevent alterations in our DNA?


Instant Repair skin booster , adding it before sunscreen, to keep the skin hydrated and, after returning from the beach, for example, together with the DNA repair cream .

You can also purchase Instant Repair and Repair DNA Cream in a discounted pack:

Previously, of course, cleansing the skin with our great novelty: Balm in oils .

What happens in the skin at a biochemical level? And why does DNA REPAIR, with our innovative active ingredient, facilitate the repair of damage caused by solar radiation?

When we are in the sun for a long time, the expression of pyrimidine cyclbutane dimers occurs, which are detected 1 hour after UV radiation, reaching the maximum at 5 hours.

The expression of these dimers occurs 16 hours after sunbathing.

The cotton seed peptides incorporated into our cream repair these dimers thanks to DNA repair enzymes, between 5 and 16 hours later .

It has been proven that it increases the synthesis of the protein or the XCP gene by 25% in skin that has not been irradiated, and by 91% in skin subjected to UVA radiation .

The XCP Gene, which gives rise to a protein, participates in the repair of damaged DNA. Mutations (changes) in the XPC gene may prevent cells from repairing their DNA, sometimes causing abnormal cells, including cancer cells, to multiply.

Mutations of the XPC gene have been found in an inherited condition called xeroderma pigmentosum. People with this condition have a very high risk of developing skin cancer and other types of cancer.

Senescence is a state of latency reached by damaged or aged cells, in which they do not reproduce, but they do not disappear either. Senescent cells emit information signals to their environment, which warn of their presence and thus promote the inflammatory response and tissue regeneration.

Our cotton seed peptides reduce the senescence of cells , both keratinocytes and fibroblasts. The anti-inflammatory action that softens erythema caused by the sun, reducing Interleukin 1 alpha, has also been observed.

If you add those that accompany it to this cream with this active ingredient...

  • Vitamins F and E, Hyaluronic Acid and Avocado Oil : Makes DNA REPAIR an ideal innovative cream in the preventive and corrective treatment of signs of aging and possible skin alterations that can cause chronic inflammation and cancer.

But the best thing is to apply the Instant Repair skin booster, with its high concentration of Aloe vera, without added water, hyaluronic acid in different molecular weight at 10% and encapsulated peptides with neurodermal action, preventive and corrective of expression lines that sun damage cause, to further activate the cream.

Let's focus more than ever on our skin, our image, our health.

Take note of this simple routine so that when you come on vacation you will have smooth skin, prevent spots and wrinkles.
