What is Keratin and why is it needed for nails?

Keratin is a very important strong protein, it is among the most critical and versatile compound ever produced in nature. It is found naturally in our hair, skin, and nails. In fact it is one of the most essential components in making up the outer layer of our skin and maintaining healthy hair and nails.  Nails typically become very weak due to constant aging or injury. Both of those factors reduce the amount and process of minerals and proteins being sent to your fingernails. Unfortunately keratin can only be formed with these minerals and proteins and when they are not present, your nail health declines.  So how can you tell if you lack keratin in your nails and what to do about it? Fortunately, keratin issues alone can be an easy fix when you know what to look for. Usually if fingernails are soft and peeling or flaky-like, you could use more keratin. You can build up keratin and strengthen your nails by supplemental use of vitamins such as Biotin or other B complex vitamins. You can also find nail products that contain keratin now! Of course a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle will always contribute to the health of your hair, skin and nails!

the MAX – Correct, Prevent and Nourish with the Power of Nature

Has the dryness of winter left your skin feeling less than loved? Do you feel like you can’t drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated? Perhaps it’s time to change up your skincare routine during these winter months. It is never too early to start using an anti-aging cream, especially one that can help undo the damage of sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles, with the power of all natural products: plant stem cells.

The Power of Nature

The MAXTM contains plant stems cells; something that not many anti-aging lines can boast. Using plant stem cells in the MAXTM products means a higher quality of skin care. It means that naturally occurring extracts help restore the balance of your skin, giving it a chance to breathe. Apple stem cell serum has been shown to protect and preserve skin cells in clinical studies. Just like the fruit that it is taken from, apple stem cells defend against dry, brittle skin and help naturally retain moisture.

An ‘Apple’ a day keeps the Dr. away

Using our daily, chemical free and gentle  MAXTM stem cell facial cleanser can help you restore your skin’s shine to its natural glow. The stem cells in all of the MAXTM products are put there to help nourish your skin from the inside out. The herbaceous alpine stem cells used in all of the MAXTM products are no joking matter. These plants (in combination with apple stem cells) keep skin hydrated and happy. Skin that is dehydrated is more prone to showing stress and signs of aging. No one is too young to start using anti-aging products! After all, crow’s feet don’t appear overnight! . Remember, your skin is only as good as the treatment you give it. Why not give your skin the best with Image Skincare.

Correct, Prevent and Nourish

Our the MAXTM stem cell masque) as part of your weekly routine can be the final step in your exclusive the MAXTM skin care regime. Imagine the healing power of plants, strengthening from within and helping smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. All of this is possible, thanks to plant stem cells! Using the stem cell masque comes with the additional benefits of forty-eight hours of invigoration from your face all the way down to your hands. Remember to apply all over since there is more to your face than just the skin on your cheekbones.

Using the MAXTM products every day will help prevent against wrinkles, sun damage and dehydration. Having a routine can help fight against unsightly sun spots, and premature aging. The stem cells in the MAXTM products have been shown to help repair damaged DNA so remember to use your ‘apple a day’ to keep the dermatologist at bay. Using all of the stem cell products in combination with each other will result in the best results; however, any of our other skin care products will work just as well. Remember, your skin is only as good as the treatment you give it. Why not give your skin the best with Image Skincare.
