What Is Inflammaging? (& How Can You Prevent It?)

We have long known that inflammation is bad for our skin, but how does it relate to premature skin aging? Skin inflammation can be caused by environmental triggers, an imbalanced skin microbiome or exposure to UV radiation. The term Inflammaging refers to the process of persistent low-grade inflammation coupled with the natural aging process. Inflammation can lead to depleted collagen production, chronic dryness and redness and irritation, all of which can speed up the aging process.  

Products To Prevent Inflammaging

BYONIK High Energy ProMicrobiome Cream

The microbiome is our natural shield, it maintains the skin barrier, regulates the pH-value and protects the skin from stressors from the environment. A compromised barrier can increase the risk of inflammaging. This cream promotes the formation of hyaluronic acid in the skin which hydrates and smooths the microstructure of the skin, helping to restore and protect the skin barrier.


BYONIK HIGH ENERGY Calming pH Spray Face & Body

This spray will help to calm your skin and can be used on both face and body. It acidifies the skin surface and buffers the pH of the hydrolipid film, stabilising the acid protective coat and helping to minimise the risk of inflammaging. It gives the skin more resistance, counteracting any imbalance of the germ flora and will help to prevent the transition of the skin to an inflammatory stage.


BYONIK CONCUR Anti-Pollution Cream Rich

Environmental toxins and UV light plus dryness intensify skin damage, due to inflammation. This rich cream protects your skin around the clock, providing moisture and leaving you with a smoother complexion. Hyaluron, anti-ageing peptides and nourishing oils provide a smoother, more delicate skin texture, and prevents the formation of melanin, slowing down the pigmentation of the skin – leaving it glowing and even.

The unique stem cell ingredients for Stem Cell Recovering Complex include concentrated active ingredients from Echinacea, to stimulate collagen production for a smoother, plumper and youthful appearance, while Summer Lilac provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits to leave skin feeling calm, soft and supple.
