When skin is young and healthy, it is smooth and evenly reflects light; it glows. This is due to the rate of which new cells are brought to the surface as older cells are continuously shed. The skin cells at the bottom layer of the epidermis, known as the stratum basale layer, constantly divide through cell division forming new keratinocytes (skin cells). This regeneration process is referred to as skin cell renewal.
With age, the skin cell renewal process slows, resulting in cells becoming stickier. This means that the cells do not shed as easily as before. As a result,...

May 04, 2017
Many have experienced the excitement of getting new skin care products that they can’t wait to use, only to have a week or two pass before the excitement fades and their skin looks worse than it did before.

The Modern Skin Care Regimen: Customized through ageLOC Me
March 09, 2017
If you consider yourself a savvy skin care consumer, you may be looking for solutions that address your unique skin care needs. Because there is no one-size-fits-all solution, everyone should consider a customized skin care regimen because, just like your fingerprint, no two individuals have the same skin.
While skin is very complex and unique, at the most fundamental level there are four basic skin types: normal, oily, dry, or combination. Since each skin type has its own distinguishing characteristics, there simply isn’t one solution that sufficiently treats all skin types. For example, if your skin is normal, it may...
As we age, our skin starts to feel more rough and facial radiance fades due to a decrease in cell turnover. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to form and we lose facial firmness. Our pores may become more prominent as a result. Fortunately, with the proper care and the right tools, we can keep our skin looking youthful and healthy as we age.
Partnering with a third party, Nu Skin evaluated ageLOC Me on its ability to target signs of aging. Two groups of 30 female subjects each used two of the leading serum combinations from our ageLOC Me system....
The skin on the neck and décolleté is one of the most neglected areas on the body—and one of the areas that can reveal your true age. Like many, you likely follow a daily routine to take care of the skin on your face. However, most people forget to protect and treat the skin on their neck and décolleté by covering it with clothes, cosmetics products, or a daily sunscreen. Similar to the face, sun exposure also ages the neck and décolleté. Failing to protect and treat this skin can cause premature aging to occur.
Over half—approximately 60 percent—of the human body is comprised of water. There’s no doubt that water is essential to our survival. In fact, our bodies’ biochemical and cellular processes require water to function. Did you know that our organs hold different amounts of water? For example, blood, which carries oxygen and nutrients all over the body, is approximately 92 percent water, while the kidneys are 79 percent water and bones are 31 percent water1. Water also works differently in various organs, sometimes acting as a carrier of nutrients, a medium for eliminating toxins, a structural support, as well as a...
