We all know that sun exposure is bad news for our skin. It causes lines and wrinkles. It’s the fast track to sagging skin. It’s a free pass to pigmentation. You get it. We know you get it. But did you know that the sun also damages your DNA? (But here’s a spoiler alert for you – Lamelle’s Nourish range will help you prevent and repair that. Phew!)

Not so fun in the sun

When anything wreaks havoc on your DNA, this injury is referred to as a “dimer” and the sun can cause them in two ways. The first, known as “direct damage”, is caused when the UV rays directly penetrate your skin. The second type of damage – “indirect damage” – is more insidious. In this case, the sun’s energy causes the molecules in your cells’ nucleus to morph into free radicals. These unstable atoms, if left unchecked, can cause cell destruction, premature ageing and even dread diseases like cancer. We call this indirect damage because, in this instance, the sun isn’t directly destroying your skin, but triggering a dangerous reaction that most certainly will.

You should also know that the sun isn’t the only culprit when it comes to the creation of free radicals. Pollution, smoking and even your own body in several conditions, be it a stressful time or exercising too much or too little, can all lead to the production of these potentially deadly molecules.

Protect and repair 

Knowing that sun damage and free radicals are very bad news for your skin, Lamelle Research Laboratories have created our bestselling Nourish collection to prevent the signs of ageing while protecting your skin from the damage that contributes to it.

To protect your skin from the sun’s direct damage, you can rely on Nourish Multi-Active Sun 30, a hydrating sunscreen that can be worn in place of a moisturiser if you have an oilier skin type or layered over either of the Nourish day creams if you’re more on the dry side.

Then, to take care of indirect damage, our moisturisers contain OGG-1, a form of photolyase with the ability to find and correct dimers. Better yet, this enzyme works fast, correcting up to 94% of damage within just 6 hours of application!

Don’t let free radicals live rent free

So, that’s dimers taken care of. But what about those pesky free radicals? Happily, our Nourish line, including the sunscreen, is jam-packed with potent and proven free radical slayers that mop up these unstable atoms like a sponge.

One is Pycnogenol, a potent antioxidant derived from French Maritime Pine Bark. It protects your skin’s collagen and elastin, calms inflammation and increases your body’s natural hyaluronic acid (HA) content. (HA is a mega-moisturising water-binding molecule and a must for hydrated, plump-looking skin.) 

The Nourish collection’s other heavyweight antioxidant is astaxanthin, a keto-carotenoid derived from Green Algae. It’s superpower is the ability to share multiple electrons, allowing it to neutralise a multitude of free radicals at once. It also bolsters your own army by protecting your skin’s first-line antioxidants and assists with their release. But that’s not all! It also lowers your MMP production rate (enzyme’s that can damage your collagen if they’re over expressed), calms inflammation and even boost your skin’s immune system. 

The bottom line

When it comes to taking the very best care of your skin, don’t mess around with anti-ageing skincare products that only treat the symptoms of ageing. Protect and repair your skin right down to the DNA level with Nourish by Lamelle Research Laboratories. This cutting-edge collection will unlock your body’s most powerful anti-aging strategies so you can confidently put your best face forward today, knowing your skin will also be taken care of in the future.
