Supplements
Moisturizers, peptides, and barrier enhancing lipids work superficially on the skin surface, like polishing a piece of marble. In other words, the combination of Retinoids, Hydroxy acids, and Anti-oxidants transform the skin, while the supplements are the “finishing touch?, making everything look a bit better.

Hydrate is a hyaluronic acid-based serum designed to enhance skin moisture, enriched with peptides to visibly plump fine lines and wrinkles. Intended for normal to oily skin.

Hydra Ultra is a combination of ceramides, fatty acids, and cholesterol in a lecithin-based emulsifier designed to help restore skin’s natural moisture and reduce dry, cracked, flaky skin. Intended for normal to dry or sensitive complexions.

Hydroxy acids & Anti-oxidants
Hydroxy acids and Anti-oxidants don’t radically transform the skin on their own. However, when used in combinations with retinoids, the benefits can be profound. Hydroxy acids enhance penetration of retinoids by thinning the stratum cornea (the top layer of skin). Antioxidants protect cells from free-radical damage and improved retinoid stability. Vitamin C in particular, is required for collagen synthesis, acting as the ultimate boost for skin regeneration.

Renew contains high-potency Vitamin C, E and Feruclic acid along with keratolytic salicylate. This unique combination provides both short-term cutaneous micro-exfoliation and longer-term anti-oxidant benefits.Skin Care Pyramid - Featured Image 4

Retinoids
Retinoids are lipophilic molecules, which means that they are oil-loving. That enables them to penetrate deep into the skin, through the cell wall and into the nucleus where the receptors are. That is why they have a wide range of biological effects. One of the most important effects is to stimulate the creation of collagen and elastin.

Reform combines moisturizing petrolatum with stabilized retinol to deliver the resurfacing effects of retinoids without the irritation associated with retinoid products.

Broad Spectrum Sunscreens
Use broad spectrum sunscreen even if you do nothing else! Sunscreen is at the base of the pyramid because it has the most science supporting its ability to protect against photo-aging and skin cancer. Broad spectrum sunscreen is the most critical part of any skin care protocol.

Defend SPF 30 combines safe and effective Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide, fortified with the powerful anti-oxidant Melanin in a silky-smooth cream, giving you a matte finish with no shine or stickiness.
