The Modern Skincare System /skin regimen/

54% of the world’s population live in urban settings, a number that will increase to 66% by 2050, according to the United Nations. The city, with its rhythms, its flow of people and its intrinsic vitality, forms the backdrop for Skin Regimen, the brand by Comfort Zone, the skincare division of the Davines Group. The range is designed to meet the needs of modern multitaskers, in particular millennials, who live in today’s fast-paced times, constantly connected and on the front line. For urban dwellers who want to be the best version of themselves while coping with the effects of daily stress and pollution, those unavoidable, critical factors of city living.

The slashes of the Skin Regimen logo are a symbol of the brand modernity. They describe the multi-tasking, creative nature of modern careers typical of Millennials and the Gig-economy. The new Skin Regimen Urban Longevity Facial™, available in spas and selected stores, is the antidote to modern fatigue and urban lifestyle. Customizable to correct specific stress-related signs, it rejuvenates the skin and leaves you feeling recharged and ready to face your busy days. Thanks to exclusive massage techniques inspired by Qigong and modern physiotherapy, and the Skin Regimen Macro Waves Sound™, this facial is ideal for a time-pressed, unisex clientele with stressed, dull and aging skin. For the launch, the brand will introduce “Fast Times, Slow Aging”, a reference for urban lifestyle written by Dr. Claudia Aguirre, which will be available on the official website. Dr. Claudia Aguirre, Los-Angeles based neuroscientist and member of the Company’s Scientific Committee, has also collaborated on the products and treatment development, providing the latest and most relevant neuroscience behind stress, lifestyle aging and the mind-body connection.

Many of the external factors we face every day, such as UV and pollution, as well as our daily choices such as smoking, diet, and the quality of our sleep and thoughts collectively result in Lifestyle Aging. These factors alter the skin’s normal cellular processes, particularly these four: DNA methylation, glycation, oxidation and inflammation. Once these processes become imbalanced, they contribute to cellular breakdown and eventually hinder skin health, even in biologically young skins.

Recent studies show that the skin not only reacts to psychological stress triggered in the brain, but it’s also able to independently produce some stress hormones, in response to environmental aggressions, like too much sun or pollution. Skin cortisol overproduction is one of the elements that in the short term makes us look tired, fatigued and older, and over time fuels inflammation and oxidation, accelerating the overall aging process.
Modern plant chemistry™.

Skin Regimen formulas are designed to be totally functional, with highly concentrated powerful botanicals and hightech molecules. With a natural aroma and cooling massageable textures, they are free from synthetic fragrances, silicones, animal derivatives, artificial colorants, mineral oils and parabens. Featured throughout all products is the Longevity Complex™, an exclusive mix of organic superfood extracts, with antiinflammatory Wild Indigo, modulating excess cortisol and boosting beta-endorphins, Maqui Berry, with powerful antioxidants anthocyanins, anti-glycation Spinach** and Carnosine. Spinach also promotes a correct DNA methylation. The natural rebalancing, reinvigorating aroma is a genderless, modern blend of four essential oils, Juniper, Copahu, Rosewood and Cedarwood. The beneficial properties of these oils reflect the nature of the trees from which they are extracted: these woods and resins are known for opening our consciousness, providing the strength and endurance needed to face life’s challenges, as well as healing wounds of an emotional nature. Tested to be below the allergenic level for the comfort and safety of the skin, the aroma has been clinically tested and found to be “not irritating”, based on 48 hours closed patch test under Semi-Occlusion, on 25 people, 18-70 y.o.

Mind and skin empowerment.

A modern skincare approach that empowers you from the inside out, working on the skin to improve the mind - and on the mind to improve the skin. In cooperation with Prof. Andrea Sgoifo, Stress Physiologist of the University of Parma, Skin Regimen has been clinically proven to improve the stress response. An innovative, independent pilot clinical evaluation, based on ECG recordings, saliva sample collection and psychometric/ behavioral testing, has been conducted on 20 women, 25-50 years old, who have applied Skin Regimen Microalgae Essence and Tripeptide Cream following the Skin Regimen Mindful Massage Ritual, twice a day for 28 days. These have been the impressive improvements in response to acute psychosocial stressors: Immediately - Positive stimulation of the neural component, associated with well-being, relaxation and protection from stress-related disturbances. After 28 days - Inhibition of cortisol activation. - Reduction of the perception of anxiety. - Improved behavioral coping strategies.

The 4-step custom regimen.
