Sublime Skin, [ comfort zone ]’s best-selling rejuvenating collection, presents a new line extension to target the effects of Hormon-aging™. The advanced integrated approach effectively counters skin thinning, sagging and extreme dryness due to menopause. The Cell-Support Technology™, featured in the new oil-based formulas, restores cell communication and promote regeneration. The scientific committee, comprising Dr. Mariuccia Bucci, Nutridermatologist, and Dr. Alyssa Burns-Hill, Holistic Hormone Health Specialist, has supported the R&D team in the line development and creation of lifestyle suggestions to support women in this delicate phase of their lives. Following the brand’s Science-based Conscious Formulas™ approach, they are paying close attention to what goes into their formulas to ensure maximum effectiveness, safety and sensory pleasure. The new products guarantee an optimal “skin support” which deeply nourishes and redensifies the skin and contain no animal derivatives, colorant and silicones. The silicones have been replaced with natural oils and butters that offer the same silkiness and softness for a “real active beauty” on the skin. Both the home care and professional offer have been dermatologically and clinically tested and proved to significantly increase the synthesis of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic acid. To be kind to the environment, their products are made in Italy using electricity from renewable sources. The CO2 neutral packaging has been designed to minimize its environmental impact, reducing the use of raw materials and superfluous elements.
Hormones and Menopause
Hormones play a significant role over the course of every woman’s life. Their fluctuations can influence the physical, mental and emotional well-being. Hormones are like messengers that send signals to adjacent and distant cells, ensuring their good functioning. When menopause happens, the estrogen and progesterone drop triggers significant changes, such as different fat distribution, hot flushes, mood swings and depression. The drop in hormones and the consequent impaired communication network among cells aggravates the aging process, causing a situation of “anarchy” in the skin. As a result, the fibroblasts’ collagen production activity and the functioning of the skin barrier are impaired and weakened. At skin level, this process we call Hormon-aging™, results in extreme dryness, loss of density and thinning skin, together with an acceleration of the typical signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging.

If approached with the support of a specific lifestyle and with a proactive and positive attitude, menopause can represent a new and vital phase in every woman’s life. Thanks to the contribution of Mariuccia Bucci, Nutridermatologist, and Dr. Alyssa Burns-Hill, Holistic Hormone Specialist, we have developed few practical tips to live positively this moment of transition.
WELLNESS WORKOUT Activities such as Yoga and Pilates are particularly recommended to improve mind and body balance and vitality. Key to maintain an active metabolism and control body weight fluctuations, they also stimulate the production of well-being hormones like endorphins and serotonin, which can help with mood swings.
EMPOWERED MEDITATION Combining a meditative activity in the evening with specific vitamin supplements can frequently return sleeping patterns back to normal, without the need for any medication.
SUPPLEMENTS Multivitamins, Omega 3, Vitamin D and Magnesium Supreme support the immune system, promote the correct level of calcification of the bones and balance mood and sleep.
PROTEINS AND FIBERS An energizing, anti-oxidant diet rich in plant-derived proteins and fibers can ensure the right amount of proteins without the need to increase the quantity of meat or dairy products. Eat vegetables, wholegrain bread and pasta and plenty of seeds.Enrich salads, yoghurts, soup and desserts with Chia, Hemp and Pumpkin seeds: you’ll add proteins and taste too!
WATER WITH A TWIST Drinking two liters of still water every day and reducing the amount of salt ensures a clear mind and a more resistant, plumped skin, and helps avoid undesired water retention, a common effect of the slowdown in circulation. Add some fresh lemon juice to your water to alkalize your body and combat unexpected pangs of hunger.
ALCOHOL AND COFFEE For those suffering from hot flashes or disturbed sleep, we recommend avoiding them or consuming in moderation. Smoking in particular influences hot flashes, increases the risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular illnesses, and, reducing the tissues oxygenation, makes skin look dull and unhealthy.
SWEET ALTERNATIVES Finding natural substitutes such as Stevia to sweeten coffee or tea, and preferably selecting dark chocolate when craving desserts, satisfy the need for sweetness while controlling weight and reducing the amount of visceral fat which is generated by the alternating glycemic highs and lows occurring during menopause.
