At Revea, we measure over 40 parameters to track your skin’s health including your hydration levels, skin texture & tone, milieu, energy supply, and dermal fibers to create your custom formulation.  Let’s dive into what impacts your dermal fiber score and how to improve it – a key parameter the Revea AI technology tracks to help you achieve healthy, radiant skin. 

What Are Dermal Fibers? 

Dermal fibers are the collagen and elastin matrix that provides the skin with strength and elasticity, preventing overstretching of the skin.  Due to aging and environmental factors, the skin’s matrix, responsible for the skin’s elastic lift, structural support, and youthful firmness, degrades over time and becomes entangled.  This leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of firmness. 

Why Are Dermal Fibers Important? 

The collagen elastin network of fibers, located in the deeper layers of your skin, provides not only structural support but also enhances your skin’s overall radiance by scattering light back to the skin’s surface. 

What Impacts Your Dermal Fibers? 

Your dermal fibers can be impacted by (chronological) age, environmental exposure, and hormonal changes. 

How Can I Improve My Dermal Fibers? 

To improve your dermal fibers: 

  1. Wear Sunscreen: Sun exposure can damage the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin, leading to premature skin aging. Protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays by wearing sunscreen with an SPF between 30-50, reapplying throughout the day, and avoiding prolonged sun exposure. 

  2. Use Antioxidant-Rich Skincare: Antioxidants, such as vitamin C and gamma oryzanol can help protect your skin from environmental damage and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  These ingredients are both found in Revea’s Skin Restoring Moisturizer which delivers essential hydration to comfort and restore your skin barrier. Plus, you can choose your preferred formula from 4 different textures: an aqueous gel with a mattifying effect, a gel cream, a unique water-in-oil, and a rich cream. 

  3. Avoid Smoking & Excessive Alcohol Consumption: Both smoking and drinking alcohol can damage collagen and elastin fibers, leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. 

Remember, improving your dermal fibers isn’t an overnight occurrence. It takes time, consistency, and patience to see visible results.
