Bend Anti-Aging Skincare Formula: Dartmouth, NS
Bend Skincare (formerly Ascenta Skin) has quickly gained attention and recognition as one of the leading beauty products on the market. The best part? It is made right in our backyard of Dartmouth! You’ve heard that Omega 3s are essential to overall health and wellness, and you may have even heard about the amazing benefits they have for the skin but we want to give you the full 4-11 on why Bend Skin is a WONDER product that will truly transform your skin.
EPA & DHA: active omega-3s that work synergystically to reduce inflammation, protect against UV damage, and improve skin elasticity. They also have been known to help with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Lutein: an anti-oxidant that reduces free-radical damage, improves hydration and elasticity, and helps to prevent UV damage.
GLA: an active omega-6 with mimicking properties to omega-3. This plant-derived ingredient improves moisture and hydration while reducing roughness and itchiness in the skin. It also improves elasticity and firmness.
Vitamin D: a mineral produced in the body when exposed to sunlight and is responsible for many regulatory functions in the body including bone mineralization and immune system function.
Zeaxanthin: a paprika-derived anti-oxidant not produced by the body so must be part of the diet. Zeaxanthin reduces free-radical damage and has been shown to fight off redness in the skin caused by UV damage . It also improves hydration and elasticity.
In an 8 week clinical trial, Bend was shown to increase skin’s natural resistance to UV exposure by almost 40% after just 4 weeks of regular use. The trial found that “the minimum amount of UV radiation needed to produce skin redness from sunburn increased an average of 83.8% in trial participants after just eight weeks” (bend.com). By just taking one dose of Bend (1tsp of liquid or 4 gel capsules) a day the body is able to naturally and effectively protect itself from UVB damage; making Bend a revolutionary product in the skincare industry.
Features & Benefits
Bend has a cumulative effect that is noticeable after just 3 weeks. Your skin will feel more hydrated, and inflammation and skin redness/irritation will be reduced. After 2 months the skin becomes significantly more resistant to UV damage. At 3 months the maximum benefits of Bend are achieved: hydration, firmness, increased elasticity, UV protection, and reduced inflammation. In order to maintain these results, Bend must continue to be taken as part of your daily routine. You may even start to notice improvements in your hair and nails, brain function and concentration, cardiovascular health, and decreased joint and muscle pain. A daily dose of Bend works from the inside out to give you the glowing, beautiful skin you’ve always wanted.
