I’m in my mid-thirties and am starting to see fine lines and wrinkles. Help.
Help is on the way. You are smart to tackle skin aging now at your young age (I just turned 50!). I recommend you try our new SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate twice daily. This powerful wrinkle fighter combines two groundbreaking technologies; patented NIA-114 and our new Collagex CE Wrinkle Repair Complex. Packed with the latest in anti-aging actives, SD Advanced is clinically proven to significantly diminish the number, length and depth of wrinkles while also stimulating both Collagen Type I and Type III (also known as Youth Collagen). When you increase collagen production, you not only fight wrinkles today, but also help build younger-looking, ageless skin for the long run. With added moisturizers this can serve as your day and nighttime cream as well. One product doing all that? You bet!
What is glycolic acid and how do I know if I need one?
A Glycolic Acid is part of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid family and is derived from sugar cane. It is a quick and easy way to target numerous sings of skin aging in minutes. As we age, our own exfoliation processes slow down, accentuating the look of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin tone, and rough texture. Using a glycolic acid peel treats all of these concerns by turning over dead skin cells, allowing your healthy and vibrant skin to be revealed instantly. Try our new StriVectinLABS 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel. In just five minutes, our two step system activates your own exfoliation processes with the highest dose of Alpha Hydroxy Acid available for at-home use. We created a two step system to make it really gentle while being completely effective. Step one detoxifies and prepares your skin for the peel action with a beautiful blend of natural clays and patented NIA-114 to strengthen the skin barrier. Step two goes right on top for the peel action. In just five minutes, you will see and feel softer, smoother more radiant skin. When used weekly, you will see a reduction in the look of lines, wrinkles, pore size, more even tone and smoother texture in just a month.
I’ve always heard you can’t use a retinol during the day and around the eyes. Is this true?
That was the case before StriVectin got on the job! Once upon a time, you could only use retinol at night because most people commonly experienced sensitivity when using retinol during the day. Our Advanced Retinol Day Treatment provides you UVA and UVB ray protection, making it absolutely safe to use in the day time. This retinol based day treatment with SPF 30 addresses the look of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven tone, imperfections, lost firmness and elasticity. And that’s not all, our Advanced Retinol Eye Treatment is also completely safe for use around the gentle eye area while also addressing the signs of eye aging day and night. Our retinol technology was such a huge breakthrough it was recently recognized by the 9th World Congress of Cosmetic Dermatology. Bravo.
