SKIN TYPES: Dry, mature, fine lines and wrinkles
BENEFITS: The Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a face and neck moisturizer that features potent antioxidants and an anti-aging complex of retinol and glycolic acid polymers. The addition of Vitamin A balances deficiencies in the skin and boosts skin’s ability to increase cellular turnover, thereby slowing down the aging process. Vitamin A thickens and stimulates the dermis where your collagen, elastin and blood vessels are. This activity reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin, while conditioning and strengthening skin.
This product contains a uniquely patented marine complex, which, combined with resveratrol (red wine), acts as a powerful inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase activity– enzymes that destroy the skin’s collagen network. Deterioration of this matrix plays an important role in the acceleration of aging in the skin. This complex can help slow down the aging process to help maintain more youthful-looking skin. An emerging anti-aging powerhouse ingredient, aminoguanidine, is included in several focused products from Skin Fitness Therapy. This ingredient slows down the process of glycation in skin and supports skin’s dermal matrix by mitigating the weakening of its collagen structure.
DELIVERY SYSTEM: The Retinol is encapsulated for a time-released delivery, which preserves the potency of the ingredient and allows it to be transported into the deeper layers of the skin’s structures to the cell receptor, with no added irritants or harsh chemicals. The purity, potency and delivery allow for dramatic results with minimized side effects often associated with Vitamin A therapy.
KEY BENEFITS OF VITAMIN A:
- Normalizes blood flow and helps reduce symptoms of rosacea
- Promotes wound healing and a healthy cellular membrane
- Re-texturizes skin, making it smooth and even-toned
- Repairs the cellular structure of the epidermis
- Decreases melanin granules, reducing brown spots or pigmentation
- Decreases sebum production and unplugs blemishes for clear skin
- Helps in the eradication of pre-cancerous skin lesions
- Improves hydration both in and around the cell
- Albumin: firming, smoothing, wrinkle-reducing
- Retinol .1% / glycolic acid polymer complex: cell-renewing, exfoliating, strengthens collagen and elastin fibers
- Glycosaminoglycans/sodium chondroitin sulfate/aminoguandine complex: enzyme inhibitor that prevents collagen breakdown
- D-17 A-hydroxy- pregnenolone: increases circulation, improves tone, firming
- Spin traps, Vitamin E: antioxidants, re-directs free radicals for a useful purpose
- L-arginine: amino acids that stimulates, reduces inflammation, and re-texturizes
- Resveratrol: antioxidant from red wine, strengthens elasticity
APPLICATION: Apply a thin, even layer once, at night only, for 2-3 days per week for the first 2 weeks. As skin tolerates, adjust the number of days per week. After the first 2 weeks, usage may be increased to 3-7 times, at night only, per week, as skin can tolerate.
