Adenosine in Anti-Aging Skin Care
Adenosine Triphosphate, also referred to as ATP, is a type of molecule that is responsible for being the leading source of energy for the majority of our cellular and muscular functions.
It is capable of boosting the levels of proteins such as Collagen and Elastin in the body. These proteins are known to play a crucial role in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines that appear on our skin as we age.
Elastin and Collagen are responsible for the strength, elasticity and structure of our skin and can be worn down by factors such as environmental pollutants, poor diet and sun exposure. As the levels of Collagen and Elastin decrease, our skin becomes incredibly loose and loses its firm and toned appearance.However Adenosine not only increases the levels of these important proteins, but is also known to fight against and reduce the damage caused by Ultraviolet B sunrays.
In particular Adenosine has been found to combat the wrinkles in the periororbital area, which we know best as crow’s feet that form around the eyes. In clinical trials the thin layer of skin in the periororbital area has shown improvements in texture and firmness when adenosine skin care products were applied regularly. This molecule has also helped to reduce the look of deep wrinkles on the forehead, also known as frown lines. Unlike other anti aging products that just build collagen to reduce expression lines over time, Adenosine also works to relax the lines, which seems to decrease their noticeability much faster than other anti aging ingredients.
Moreover, Adenosine is noted to improve blood circulation to the surface levels of the skin, supporting the repair of damaged cells and increasing the overall cell count to create vibrant, youthful, flawless skin.
On top of all these wonderful benefits, It is also utilized as an anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce swelling and in turn creating tighter looking skin. In conjunction with its anti inflammatory properties Adenosine has been proven to smoothen out the texture of the skin. Furthermore, topical use of Adenosine has been confirmed to dramatically speed up the healing rate at of skin abrasions unlike any other ingredient.
