To continue with our healthy skin two-pronged approach expose from yesterday, we are going to move on to the topical side…a skin-care regimen that protects the skin from free radical damage.
Dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie (whom I met Wednesday) is a huge proponent of glycolic acid which helps with skin tone, texture, acne and fine lines. She implores us to think more about what we are putting on our skin on a scientific basis. To keep skin looking young and fresh, most dermatologists are now recommending an anti-aging skin care regimen that includes glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane. Dr. Downie suggests working with a professional to come up with a regimen based on your particular skin’s needs. She recommends VIVITÉ to her patients looking for a natural way to fight the signs of aging.
The products in the new VIVITÉ skin care line have glycolic compound concentrations of up to 20%, whereas most over-the-counter skin care products have only 3-10% concentrations. Therefore the line is currently available only through your dermatologist’s office.
The line includes: Exfoliating Facial Cleanser; Daily Facial Cleanser; Daily Antioxidant Facial Serum (love); Night Renewal Facial Cream (really love); Revitalizing Eye Cream; Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30.
- 22% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- 36% increase in skin moisture content
- 54% improvement in skin smoothness
- 65% decrease in dryness
You can only buy these products from a doctor’s office, but no worries, it’s easy to find one. Just use this physician finder link.
