Ground Zero | Energy and your Skin
While wrinkles and a sagging skin are an initial outward signs of aging, it actually begins deep within your cells. The same can go for your hair growth - and it’s vitality.
In this informed beauty lesson, I’m covering how Mitochondria are the power plants within your cells which create ground zero for energy production allowing you to feel full of energy while imparting better skin.
I'll also share two key players proven to transform you into a energizing bunny.
Iconic beauty, right?
Mighty - Mito - Production
A HUGE GAME CHANGER at All Levels
Let’s dive in!
Starting off, there are many theories when approaching aging skin. Most products seek to just improve the visible appearance of aging skin, but Evoq Beauty is different.
The fundamental formulating principles within our Evoq “beyond organic” skincare system focuses on targeting the very underlying causes of skin degeneration – better known as mitochondrial decay – to help rejuve and improve your skin’s health now and over time.
Look around you …
Glowing skin is in influenced by both our genetics and environmental factors. Epigenetic medicine points out this critical component referenced as your “exposome.”
Simply put - 80% of aging is the environment controlling your cell to cell messaging and only 20% is genetically encoded.
So if our body's 20% of the natural aging process is not within our control (referred to as intrinsic aging), it’s clear that we play a huge hand in controlling the other 80% which are the lifestyle decisions and environmental factors such as the sun, pollution, smoking and poor nutrition (referred to as extrinsic).
Taking Back Control
Let's swing back and layout the ONE MAJOR CAUSE of accelerated aging called “mitochondrial decay."
Over time, depletion at the cellular level breaks down and collapses collagen at deeper layers, manifesting lines, lost volume, lost radiance, uneven pigmentation, and dryness.
Capturing 2 key players to help you take back control.
The Role of Mitochondria
in Aging Skin
Mitochondria are small structures inside a cell that generate energy.
They produce 98% of the energy for the body.
For this reason, they are often called the ENERGY POWERHOUSE OF THE CELL.
Down to a science. ... The energy molecules are called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is essential to life – it supplies energy for all reactions in the body. Without it, life cannot exist.
Functions of Failure
Organs cannot borrow energy from one another, so the efficiency of each organ's mitochondria is essential to its repair processes and functions on it’s own. If an organ's mitochondria fail, then so does that organ. The skin is the largest organ in the body, so the enhancement and protection of actual mitochondrial function is instrumental in preventing and slowing skin aging.
When ATP is unable to be produced due to mitochondrial dysfunction, the resulting buildup of toxins leads to significantly lowered nutrient absorption. This is similar to what happens when an electrical circuit is obstructed and the energy flow is impeded.
The Free Radical Exchange
As ATP is produced by the mitochondria, a secondary waste by-product is naturally produced. These waste by-products are known as free radicals. Free radicals are highly charged molecules lacking a paired electron making them very likely to bind to other atoms or molecules, which in turn gives rise to a process called oxidative stress. Not so great, because oxidative stress damages cells and is linked with various diseases as well as the commons signs of aging, including wrinkles in the skin.
The After Party Cleanup
When free radical parties are a little too loud, the clean up crew has to work harder than normal. As free radicals continue to rise, toxins accumulate until the cell is destroyed. Evoq’s skin nutrients provide antioxidants and oxygenation directly to the cells to alleviate the oxidative stress response and maintain energy production to allow the cells to detoxify and maintain integrity.
Evoq skin care naturally targets mitochondrial decay with our “Forces of Nature” approach which slows deterioration and simultaneously helping to sustain an optimize mitochondrial's functional ability in skin cells for long term skin health.
Skin Care Solutions + 2 Key Game Changers
How Oxygen and Marine Plant Life brings
a New Force to your Skin's Vitality
A key component in almost every Evoq skin product encompasses components of the sea, and one specifically being phytoplankton. This single-celled organisms lives amongst the various marine plant life species responsible for:
- approximately 70% of the earth’s oxygen supply
- a plethora of amino acids
- fatty acids
- micronutrients and macronutrients
Marine Biomimetic Super Power
By permeating the dermal membranes, marine plants deliver concentrated phytonutrients that directly benefit our cells rather than being held up in the digestive tract or decomposed and cleansed via the liver.
Cellular function, detoxification and overall immune support through antioxidant content (which includes superoxide dismutase, Co2, astaxanthin, vitamin C and vitamin E) allows your body to more easily protect itself against free radicals.

Cellular Respiration with Oxygen
Our mind and bodies are bombarded by consistent variable levels of stress - slowing our reproduction capabilities. Validated research now offers the scientific proof of ways to “hack” and increase our health.
Get this, as we age, our skin’s ability to capture oxygen from blood circulation diminishes (50% by the age of 40).
- Capillaries failure limits circulation of oxygen-loaded hemoglobin which is vital skin nutrients.
- Sluggish circulation interferes with the evacuation of toxins leading to skin aging symptoms including wrinkles, age spots and loss of tone and moisture.
The skin’s thirst for oxygen is vital in the production of collagen. Evoq infuses liquid oxygen in our skin line to give an instant head start in promoting the dermal metabolic processes to enhance collagen formation resulting in the strengthening of the connective tissue matrix and firm, more youthful looking skin.
Like Meets “Like” and Inside Out
The electrolytes and micro-nutrients in marine life supports optimal cellular metabolism due to the composition of human plasma is said to be very similar to that of sea water. If this is the case, it would make sense to expand one’s regimen both externally and also internally with a diet beyond a land-based diet to also include the micro-nutrients, electrolytes and unique phytoproteins only afforded by ocean plant life.
The Future of Your Skin + Care
Pretty dang powerful right? Who wouldn’t want to infuse and resurrect their skin with oxygen and the most nutrient-dense food on Earth?
