How Biona Works?

BIONA consists of vitamins, natural carotenoids, minerals and trace elements that have positive influence on the health of skin, hair follicles and nails.

In BIONA, biotin, a B-complex vitamin, helps supports skin elasticity, firmness, hardness and nais and hair health. Antioxidant vitamins enhance skin cell turnover and collagen synthesis, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles in skin. The components of BIONA help in preventing dry hair and protect against premature skin aging from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light and environmental pollutants. Natural mixed carotenoid provides potent antioxidant activity and helps in the protection of skin.

Copper, iron and zinc are essential trace minerals and need to be supplemented. Copper is essential for stabilizing collagen, an important component of skin. More than 300 enzymes in our body for their activity require zinc. Zinc plays an important role in the growth of healthy skin, hair and nails. Iron is required for red blood cells for transporting oxygen. Iron is essential for a healthy skin. Its deficiency may make your skin appear dull and exhausted.

The right amino acid mix repairs skin from within. They supply nutrients to nourish and strengthen skin, hair and nails from within the body.

Beautiful skin, shiny hair and firm nails are certainly symbols for health and natural beauty. In order to keep them this way as long as possible, supply of above mentioned nutrients is very important. So, make BIONA, a part of your daily life.

Acne

What is Acne?

An acne or pimple is a common skin problem that starts when oil and dead skin cells clog up your skin pores. There are many names by which pimples are known–blackheads, blemishes, whiteheads or zits. Acne/pimplegenerally affects face but can appear on neck, chest and back. Anyone can get acne but it is common in teenagers and young adults. Some women who never had acne in their growing up years may develop acne during adulthood, often right before menstrual periods.

What causes Acne?

The exact cause of acne is not known, however, hormones called androgens can play an important role. During puberty, androgens increase in both males and females. Androgens make the skin's oil glands get bigger and secrete more oil/sebum. Acne appears when oil and dead skin cells clog skin pores. If infected by germs, it leads to swelling, redness and formation of pus. Androgens also increase during hormonal changes related to pregnancy, menstrual cycle or starting/ stopping of birth control pills.

Acne

What does Acne look like?

Whiteheads - Small white dots on skin that are pores filled with oil and dead skin covered by skin layers.

Blackheads - Pin-head sized dark spots that are impacted pores in which material pushes out through the follicles.

Papules, pustules or nodules - These are more serious ad bigger lesions appearing red and swollen due to inflammation or infection of the tissue around the clogged pores, which are often painful and hard.

Cysts - Deep, pus-filled pimples.

Dermatitis

What is Dermatitis?



Dermatitis simply means skin inflammation, but it includes a range of conditions. The early stages of dermatitis are characterized by red, dry and itchy skin. More serious form of dermatitis may appear as crusty scales or blisters that ooze fluid.
Dermatitis is a common skin problem that is not contagious or life-threatening. However, it makes you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious.

What are the types of Dermatitis?

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) - It may begin at infancy, this red, itchy rash most commonly occurs in the skin folds like the elbows, behind the knees and the front of the neck.

Contact dermatitis – This rash appears when skin comes in contact with substances that either irritate the skin or cause an allergic reaction, such as poison ivy, soap or detergent. The rash may cause burning or itching. Blisters may also develop.

Seborrheic dermatitis – This is seen as red or yellowish "oily" scales usually on the scalp and sometimes on the face, especially around the ears and nose. It's a common cause of dandruff.

What are the risk factors?

Some of the factors, which can increase your risk of developing certain types of dermatitis, are:
Age: Dermatitis can occur at any age, but atopic dermatitis usually begins in infancy.
Asthma and allergies: Atopic dermatitis is commonly found among those who have personal or family history of hay fever or asthma.
Occupation: Work that put you in contact with certain chemicals, solvents or cleaning agents increases your risk of contact dermatitis.

Role of BIONA in Dermatitis:

  • Maintains the health and integrity of skin
  • Helps to regulate skin proliferation and reduce symptoms of dermatitis
  • Reduces skin eruptions and rashes in patients with Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Strengthens skin's protective barrier
  • Enhances immune cell function and may increase resistance to infections
  • Vitamins present in BIONA may help lessen the symptoms and prevent recurrence of dermatitis:
    • Vitamin A enhances immunity and is required for maintenance and repair of skin tissue. It acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from oxidative and free radical damage.
    • B-complex vitamins are referred to as anti-stress vitamins. They help in growth and maintenance of nerves, skin, eyes and hair.
    • Vitamin C is another powerful antioxidant that improves skin health and can minimize the symptoms of eczema. It also helps in removing toxic substances (such as allergens) from the body.
    • Vitamin D also helps in some of the symptoms of dermatitis like itchiness, dryness and redness.
    • Vitamin E improves the skin's appearance and helps reduce dryness and soreness. As an antioxidant, it also helps in Dermatitis by preventing cellular damage from free radicals and the oxidation of fats.
Sunburn

What is Sunburn?

Sunburn is skin damage caused by overexposure to UV radiation from the sun. It can make your skin red and painful, which can later lead to peeling or blistering. The severity of sunburn depends on your skin type and the duration you are exposed to UV rays. The symptoms of sunburn may not occur immediately and can take up to 5 hours to appear.

Signs and symptoms of sunburn

  • Skin turns pink or red
  • Skin feels warm or hot to the touch
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Small fluid-filled blisters, which may break
  • Headache, fever and fatigue if sunburn covers a large area
  • Any part of your body, including your earlobes, scalp and lips can burn
  • Eyes are extremely sensitive to UV rays. Sunburned eyes may feel painful or gritty

How can you avoid getting sunburn?

  • Avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sunrays are strongest during these hours. Look for shade whenever possible if you are unable avoid being in the sun.
  • Cover up. Wear tightly woven clothing that will cover your arms and legs and a broad brimmed hat.
  • Use sunscreen frequently and liberally. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or more, which gives protection against both UVA as well as UVB rays. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every 2 hours or more often if you are swimming or perspiring. You should use it even on cloudy or hazy days.
  • Wear sunglasses. Do not forget to wear your sunglasses when you go outdoors. You should pick the one which fit close to your face and blocks 99 or 100% of all UV light.

BIONA protects from sunburn

Antioxidants present in BIONA

  • Increase basal dermal defense against UV irradiation
  • Provide long-term protection
  • Contribute to maintenance of skin health and appearance

Sun damage creates free radicals in our bodies. Antioxidant vitamins like vitamin A, C and E present in BIONA provide internal protection against the damaging effects of free radicals. So while sunscreen protects you from outside, vitamins protect you from the inside out.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant which helps with cellular repair and regeneration. It protects and also lessens the severity of sunburn.


Vitamin E protects cell membranes from damage by free-radicals. It reduces photo damage and wrinkles.


Selenium may reduce the risk of skin cancer due to sun exposure.


Carotenoids like beta-carotene or lycopene are efficient antioxidants reducing singlet molecular oxygen and peroxyl radicals generated in during sun-exposure.

Psoriasis

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a common skin disease that affects the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes skin cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming thick silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful.

What does psoriasis look like?

Psoriasis signs and symptoms can vary from person to person but may include one or more of the following:
  • Red patches of skin covered with silvery scales
  • Small scaling spots (commonly seen in children)
  • Dry, cracked skin that may bleed
  • Itching, burning or soreness
  • Thickened, pitted or ridged nails
  • Swollen and stiff joints
Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff-like scales to major eruptions that cover large areas. Mild cases of psoriasis may be a nuisance; more-severe cases can be painful, disfiguring and disabling.

What causes Psoriasis?

The exact cause of psoriasis is not fully known, but it is related to the immune system and its interaction with the environment in people who have the genetic susceptibility. In psoriasis T-cells (part of body's defense system) start to attack healthy skin cells. This triggers the immune system to produce new skin cells and more T- cells. These skin cells die within a period of 5-6 days, rather than normal 28 days. The dead skin cells build up on the skin surface as thick, scaly patches.

Role of BIONA in psoriasis

  • Reduces skin inflammation, itching and redness
  • Plays a central role in regulation and control of skin cell growth
  • Great potential in clearing psoriatic skin lesions
  • Great alternative for maintenance treatment for chronic plaque psoriasis

There is no cure, however, lifestyle factors, including stress management, topical medication and consuming a supplement rich in certain vitamins, including the antioxidant vitamins C and E and B-vitamins (such as folate) may offer some protection against flare-ups.

Antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamins C, E and -carotene (precursor to vitamin A) help to strengthen the immune system and possibly offer protection against the development of this condition or decrease the intensity of symptoms.

B-vitamins are beneficial because they play a role in the repair and healing of skin tissue. One such B-vitamin is thiamin, also known as vitamin B1.

Pantothenic acid (PA) is another B-vitamin that is essential for the health of your hair, skin and nails.

Individuals suffering from psoriasis may have elevated homocysteine levels.The higher the blood level of homocysteine (in those with psoriasis), the more severe are disease symptoms. Folic acid helps regulate and decrease homocysteine levels. Thus, folic acid (vitamin B9) levels were inversely correlated with psoriasis severity.

Dos and Don'ts for managing Psoriasis

Do's
  • Talk to your doctor: Always discuss all the details about your condition to a dermatologist, including your first symptoms of psoriasis, situations that seem to aggravate the symptoms and treatment you are on.
  • Moisturize: Keep your skin well lubricated because dry skin is more susceptible to outbreaks of psoriasis. After bathing or showering, do not forget to apply a generous amount of moisturizing cream or oil to your skin.Specially be careful about moisturizing your skin during the winter months, when cold outdoor weather can cause dryness.
  • Do take a bath: Soaking in a warm (not hot) bath for 15 minutes every day can help loosen scales and reduce the itching and inflammation caused by psoriasis.
  • Get some sunlight: Make sure that only the areas affected by psoriasis are exposed. Cover unaffected skin with clothing or a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Limit sun exposure to 15 minutes, and be careful to avoid sunburn, which will only make matters worse.
  • Reach out: Psoriasis is not only physically tough but it can be emotionally difficult too. It can make you feel depressed, frustrated and isolated. Body image issues related to the unattractive appearance of psoriasis lesions are normal.Discuss and share your feelings about the disease with your family and friends and your doctor.
Dont's
  • Don't scrub: You should never try to scrub away your lesions. It will only irritate and make them worse. Bathing in very hot water or using abrasive cleaners can also make your psoriasis flare up.
  • Don't take stress: It has been proven that psoriatic condition worsens under stress. Take extra care of yourself to avoid stress- such as eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep and meditating.
  • Don't smoke: Limit your alcohol intake and quit smoking
  • Don't give up: It may take some time to find the right combination of therapies that will work best for your psoriatic condition. So, be patient and be consistent with your treatment plan.

Know Your ...

Skin

The skin is the largest organ of the body, making up 16% of body weight, with a surface area of 1.8 m2. It has three main layers, the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer/hypodermis. Skin is a dynamic organ in a constant state of change, as cells of the outer layers are continuously shed and replaced by inner cells moving up to the surface.

Skin layer Description
Epidermis It is an outermost elastic layer and is constantly regenerated. It is composed of keratinocytes, corneocytes and melanocytes
Basement membrane It forms the junction between epidermis and dermis
Dermis It is the supportive connective tissue between the epidermis and the underlying subcutis: contains sweat glands, hair roots, nerve cells, blood and lymph vessels.
Subcutis/Hypodermis This is the layer of loose connective tissue and fat beneath the dermis.

  • Epidermis acts as a physical and chemical barrier between the body and external environment.
  • Dermis is the deeper layer providing the structural and nutritional support to the skin
  • Subcutis or hypodermis is a loose connective tissue layer, which is an important depot of fat.
Hair

Hair is a filamentous biomaterial that grows from follicles found in the dermis. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals.

Hair has two distinct structures:
  • Hair follicle: This is the part beneath the skin. It is located in the dermis and maintains stem cells that re-grow the hair after it falls out.
  • Shaft:This hard filamentous part extends above the skin surface.
A cross section of the hair fiber may be divided roughly into three zones:
  • Cuticle: This is the outermost layer that consists of several layers of flat, thin cells laid out overlapping one another.
  • Cortex: This is the middle layer that contains the keratin bundles.
  • Medulla: This is the innermost layer.
Nails
  • Nails consist of a dense plate of hardened keratin between 0.3 and 0.5mm thick.
  • Fingernails function to protect the tip of the fingers and to help in grasping.
  • The nail is made up of a nail bed, nail matrix and a nail plate.
  • Nail matrix: : composed of dividing keratinocytes, which mature and keratinize into the nail plate. The nail plate appears pink due to adjacent dermal capillaries and the white lunula at the base of the plate
  • Nail bed: It lies underneath the nail plate. The thickened epidermis which underlies the free margin of the nail at the proximal end is called the hyponychium.
  • Fingernails grow at 0.1 mm per day; the toenails grow more slowly.

Skin care tips

Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural aging process and prevent various skin problems.

1. Sun–protection: The best way to care for your skin is to protect it from sunlight. Sun-exposure causes pigmentation, wrinkles, and spots as well as increases risk of skin cancer. For complete sun-protection:

  • Use sunscreen: of SPF 15 or more. Apply it half an hour before going outdoors and reapply every 2 hours or more often if swimming or sweating.
  • Stay in shade: Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sunrays are strongest.
  • Protective clothing: Cover your skin with cotton long sleeved shirts, full pants, scarf and hats.

2. Good skin care starts right from your daily routine
  • Avoid hot water: Using hot water during bath removes natural oils from your skin. Use warm rather than hot water.
  • Avoid harsh soaps: Strong soaps can strip oil from your skin and make it dry and flaky. Instead, choose mild cleansers.
  • Pat dry: Never scrub your skin with towel after bathing. You should only pat dry gently with a soft towel so that some moisture remains on the skin.
  • Moisturize: Always use a moisturizer that fits your skin type.
  • Night care: Remove all makeup, wash your face and apply moisturizer before you go to bed.
3. Healthy Diet

A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking water regularly. s

4. Supplement your diet:

BIONA helps you from the inside out – giving you glowing skin, luscious hair and delectable nails, which contribute to you looking great and feeling fabulous!

5. Exercise:
Exercise is one of the best ways to nourish and revitalize tired skin cells. Before you invest in another treatment mask, try taking a brisk walk or jog. By getting your heart pumping and increasing circulation your skin receives a delicious dose of oxygenated blood that boosts detoxification and cell renewal.
6.Sleep

Sleep allows the skin to restore its natural balance and increases the effectiveness of certain skin care ingredients, potentially providing more benefit to your skin. When you don't get enough sleep, your skin will show it. Eyes look dark and puffy after even a single night of poor sleep, but chronic sleep deprivation is particularly damaging. It leads to a dull, dehydrated complexion and can wreak havoc on skin prone to acne.

Skin damaging factors

Skin, one of the most essential organs that acts as a protective barrier to all the internal organs could be easily damaged by various factors. Majority of factors associated with skin damage could be prevented with simple steps. Read on to know more!


Pollution: This factor is very important if you reside in highly polluted urban areas where your skin is constantly damaged by a range of environmental pollutants, dust and fumes. Pollution can lead to dehydration of skin, poor color, clogging of pores and acne.

Alcohol: វIt causes blood vessels to over-dilate and weakens capillary walls. As a result, skin becomes dull, dehydrated, sensitive, red and blotchy.


Smoking: Speeds up the process of aging in skin, leading to the appearance of premature wrinkles. It causes skin damage on your face and affects skin tone and elasticity all over the body. This is because nicotine causes shrinkage of blood vessels, thus inhibiting your skin's ability to receive nourishment.

Air-conditioning: AC reduces humidity from indoor air and robs the outer layer of the skin. This constant loss of moisture results in dry, flaky and chapped skin. Skin also becomes prone to developing creases and wrinkles.

Stress: It is a known fact that stress affects your health and appearance negatively. Mental stress can be a contributing factor to many skin problems like psoriasis, eczema, rosacea and acne.

Lack of exercise: How can we forget the importance of regular fitness regime? No amounts of beauty treatments and cosmetic procedures can help you retain your skin glow if you do not exercise regularly. An exercise increase blood circulation and imparts a healthy glow to your skin.

Top anti aging tips

Most women hate aging. Although the effects of aging could not be avoided, they can be minimized. There are numerous ways which could help you look younger and more refreshing with each passing single day.


How to achieve this?
  • Always use sunscreen with at least SPF 15 on all exposed body parts
  • Wear protective clothing
  • Try to stay/walk in shade when out or use umbrella/hats
  • Avoid sun between 10 am to 4 pm

Eat well: Eating healthy is the key to looking younger and feeling energetic. Get no more than 30-35% of daily calories from fat, with 1/5th of that from unsaturated fat (1% milk, olive and canola oil); 15% from protein; and the remaining calories from carbohydrates- which includes fruits and veggies, and focus on complex carbs like oatmeal, whole wheat bread and brown rice.

Exercise: Regular exercise is a must-do for anyone who is committed to slowing the aging process. Exercise combats the loss of stamina, muscle strength, balance and bone density that increases with age. Exercise increases blood circulation and gives glow to your skin.

Consider a good supplement: Our body requires some essential nutrients which are not always present in our diet. BIONA consists of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and trace elements that have positive influence on our overall health. They delay cell aging and improve appearance. Antioxidant vitamins enhance skin cell turnover and collagen synthesis, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles in skin. The components of BIONA help in preventing dry hair and protect against premature skin aging from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light and environmental pollutants.

Sleep: Sleep gives rest to your brain and body. Eight hours of sleep each night is very important for your physical and mental well-being. Lack of sleep makes you irritable, tired and more prone to anger.

Water: At any age, water is essential for our health. Drinking enough water can help keep our bodies running efficiently and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as we age. Adequate water intake can also bring back some of that youthful glow by keeping your skin naturally moisturized.

Minimize sugar intake: Too much sugar intake can lead to weight gain and other health problems in old age. Many foods which are available in market such as bread, canned soups, pasta sauce, frozen food and ketchup have hidden sugar in them. Commonly used terms for hidden sugar are corn syrup, molasses, cane juice, fructose, sucrose, dextrose or maltose. These sugars are equally harmful for our body. So, opt for fresh or frozen vegetables, low-carb or sugar-free versions of packed food.
