A letter from a customer and fan

At our head office in Vancouver, Canada, the Glissandra team is always thrilled to receive letters, emails, and phone calls from enthusiastic customers – and sometimes their spouse! – who can’t wait to share the incredible experiences they’ve had since they were first introduced to Glissandra. It makes our day and reminds us of how lucky we are to be making a difference in people’s lives.
We don’t like to gloat, but we have some of the best customers and fans around! Take Pino, who splits his time between Vancouver and sunny California. He’s given us permission to share his unedited letter with you, in hopes of helping other people who have similar issues.
I had acute sunburn problems on my scalp for a long time, as I am Bald & enjoy exercising outdoor. I used to put on a lot of sun block, but that did not help with the development of redness with an expanded whitish colored skin, sometimes leading to blisters & scars. My skin was so delicate that only a light touch would generate a blister. Also my scalp had developed scalings.
Since using the Glissandra serum, my scalp has much improved. To ensure I have maximum protection I always put on an extra layer of serum just before doing sports under the sun (particularly in California where I spend quite a bit of time). I do not have blister problems anymore, and the scarred tissues are healed; even the pigmentation has improved greatly.
Thank you for sharing your story with us, Pino. We appreciate your support!

A holistic approach to caring for your aging skin

We’ve come to accept the signs of skin aging – wrinkles and expression lines, droopy eyelids, age spots, dark circles, dry skin, enlarged pores, sagging skin, and more (lucky us!) – as an inevitability.  Fortunately, the science of aging has advanced at a remarkable rate in recent years, providing tremendous insight into the causes of and effective solutions for our aging skin.

Numerous studies have identified five major causes of skin aging:

  1. Mitochondrial decay
  2. Inflammation
  3. Oxidative (free-radical induced) damage
  4. Depletion of cellular components, such as collagen and elastin
  5. Adverse external factors

In light of this, it would make sense that your skincare regimen be equipped to combat all causes of skin aging – especially the leading cause, mitochondrial decay – through a comprehensive, holistic approach.  Many anti-aging skincare products contain some combination of common ingredients, such as peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid, but they don’t stand up to all causes of skin aging simultaneously.  Neglecting even one cause renders the entire approach significantly less effective.  You wouldn’t go into battle with a hole in your armor, would you?

We understand that the condition of our skin as we age, whether we retain our young and healthy look, is influenced in part by genetics and also by environmental factors, which is fantastic if you’ve been blessed with good genes.  But while you can’t control the former, the good news for everyone is that you can control your exposure to adverse external factors, such as the sun, pollution, smoking and poor nutrition.  Avoiding these, while maintaining a conscientious skincare regimen that addresses all causes of skin aging, are easy steps you can take to control your skin’s aging process.
