Layered Up Besties
If you were going to pick just one antioxidant for your skin care, my opinion as a dermatologist is that green tea is the best - it helps calm skin redness and fights sun damage at the same time. Topically applied green tea polyphenol antioxidants have been shown to help prevent non-melanoma skin cancer by boosting repair of damaged DNA - this damage repair is critical for your skin health. My Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy gives you the best concentrated pharmaceutical grade green tea polyphenols plus caffeine and resveratrol (an antioxidant from grapes) for the best professional-strength age-fighting antioxidant skin care.
Combined with Instantly Luminous Multi-Action Serum, these Layered Up Besties transform skin both inside and out. Instantly Luminous Serum gives you advanced skin care technology for firmer, brighter, and smoother skin instantly! Instantly plump fine lines and wrinkles because every day counts and you need that now!
Your skin has an elaborate antioxidant system to help it survive stressors such as UV sun exposure, pollution and inflammation from conditions such as acne, rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis. Unfortunately, we know that these stressors can overwhelm your skin's antioxidant reserve, resulting in skin damage, premature skin aging, inflammation, and non-melanoma skin cancers.
We know that topically applied high-quality, high-concentration green tea polyphenol antioxidants help boost DNA repair, which is a key step in preventing skin damage. But most products are just 'fairy-dusted' with green tea to enhance marketing appeal and key words on the label. Not my Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy. This product contains the highest quantity of pure, stable, pharmaceutical green tea polyphenol antioxidants available - it's the right stuff! Each ounce of Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy has the polyphenol antioxidant content of 500 cups of green tea including the compound EGCG (epigallocatechin 3-gallate) which is the major preventative antioxidant polyphenol component in green tea.
I've seen Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy work wonders on my patient's complexions for years. In addition to green tea polyphenols, Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy contains caffeine (shown to augment the anti-cancer effectiveness) and resveratrol (the antioxidant that gives red wine its health benefits).
Applying Instantly Luminous Multi-Action Serum under the Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy goes one better!. Made with an advanced serum formula matrix, this beautiful blue serum instantly brightens, firms, and smooths all layers of your skin. By plumping fine lines and wrinkles Instantly Luminous Serum transforms a dull complexion into one that's dewy, with a velvety luminosity and a more youthful and radiant tone – even on your first application. When you use this advanced technology twice daily, your skin takes on a soft radiance as the powerful skin hydrators coupled with even more antioxidants and an oil-absorbing mineral complex balance your skin.
Truly a brilliant blend of the best from science and nature – Instantly Luminous Multi-Action Serum’s technology formula matrix includes:
- Both small and large molecular weight hyaluronic acid. The small molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules penetrate skin easily for deep hydration that plumps and lifts limp and dehydrated skin to help smooth wrinkles and crinkles instantly. At the same time, large molecular weight hyaluronic acid remains on the skin surface to form a moisture-locking barrier to protect your skin from moisture loss throughout the day. You can't compare this to other hyaluronic acid containing products.
- Both Sodium PCA (a natural component of skin) and glycerin (a time-honored skin humectant). Both of these ingredients work hard to keep your skin hydrated all day by pulling moisture from the air and giving it to your skin! Yep, it's true. Sodium PCA is a naturally occurring, and important component of your skin. It is also part of the “natural moisturizing factors” (NMFs), which are vitally important for maintaining healthy skin structure and function, including skin repair and rejuvenation activities.
- Three antioxidants, including white tea extract, ergothioneine, and glutathione. These are great collaborators with the green tea antioxidants in Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy to super-boost your skin's antioxidant reserve. Give your skin an antioxidant advantage - you can never have enough protection from damaging and skin-aging free radicals.
