Botanicals have long been used in beauty and skin care formulations and products. This is because they are indeed efficacious ingredients when used in proper doses and prepared correctly. There are beauty brands which throw them in on occasion for their own marketing purposes as opposed to their efficacy; but there are many brands who indeed use them correctly, medicinally and pharmacodynamically in order to access their many properties and skin rejuvenating benefits.
Skin care botanicals (for topical use) are easiest to understand when they are characterized categorically. These categories include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing type botanical additives. The properties and benefits of these herbal ingredient categories are dependent upon the plant type source and the conditions in which they were grown, the method in which they were prepared, the type and status of the extract (liquid, powder, syrup, paste, or crystal) and the concentration (whether it is sufficient enough to produce a biologic or therapeutic effect).
• Antioxidant categories consist of additives such as soy and curcumin
• Anti-inflammatory types are often derived from green tea and gingko biloba
• Soothing Agent types are botanicals such as aloe vera, allantoin and prickly pear
Here are some useful botanicals and excellent products that use them (and each of the above categories) for a number of skin indications:
Acne: ARCONA Raspberry Acne Bar
Primary ingredient(s): Witch Hazel, Green tea and Aloe; Primary category: Anti-Inflammatory and Skin Soothing
Dark eye circles: Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream
Primary ingredient(s): Grape seed oil (Vitus vinifera); Primary category: Anti-oxidant
Sensitive skin: Pevonia RS2 Care Cream
Primary ingredient(s): Green Tea and Chamomile; Primary category: Anti-inflammatory, Skin Soothing and Antibacterial
Hair loss/thinning: Phyto Phytocyane Revitalizing Serum
Primary ingredient(s): Gingko Biloba; Primary category: Anti-inflammatory
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about ways to get the most out of professional injectibles, laser, and other cosmetic procedures and surgery. Then all of a sudden out of the blue I started reading some of my new dermatology and aesthetic magazines that were featuring some of the same thoughts as I had been having. And then yesterday, my sidekick Gina wrote about three great new products which help with the exact same issue as well. I guess my grandiose idea is the same thought most everyone else in the beauty business is having as well.
Extending the life of your professional treatments whether they’re injectables such as Botox or fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse makes all the sense in the world to me and seems to work quite nicely. Like any beauty treatment or many medical procedures (in order to maintain results or even prolong them) it seems quite prudent to take good care of them. Additionally, just because one may have had injections to reduce the appearance of deep folds and wrinkles…it doesn’t mean their skin’s overall appearance is going to look all that much better. However, those professional treatments will look superb if the overall texture is being improved simultaneously with a proper and individualized skin care regimen.
Having said that, my idea of maintaining, extending and potentiating the effects of your professional treatments (as long as your professional practitioner agrees) is to use a superior skin care regimen such as the Vivite System
. The Vivite
set comes with a complete regimen for most skin types who are interested in achieving anti-aging benefits. Additionally, Vivite products
are made by Allergan, the pharmaceutical company who also brought us Botox and Juvederm. Now that’s what I’d call a win-win-win!
Out of all of the topics that we cover on Beauty Research, anti-aging is probably the most in demand. As long as the years continue to pass, we will all try to maintain our youthful look and seek out new ways to cheat the aging process. We strive to keep our readers up-to-date on all of the latest technologies out there that improve the look of mature skin and help keep the signs of aging at bay as much as possible.
We have talked about laser devices before and some of our readers have asked if they are safe to use around the eyes. It just so happens that a new laser device designed specifically for the eye area has made its way to the market. The PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is a hand-held unit that requires just a few minutes a day. PaloVia is FDA approved for home use and designed to improve the look of wrinkles. Since the eye area is such a difficult area to treat, it is really exciting to see the PaloVia home laser device become available for home use. Even if you’re using a high quality topical, the active ingredients can only reach so far. The PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is capable of penetrating much deeper to target those wrinkles at the source.
Of course, I would definitely not recommend giving up eye cream. The beauty behind laser tools is that they can be used in conjunction with topicals for even better results. This brings me to a great new eye product on the market from Caudalie. If you’re not familiar with Caudalie skin care, the brand is based on natural extracts from grapes for rejuvenating the skin. Even though this is a French brand, there is a Caudalie Spa in New York City that lavishes customers with treatments using Caudalie products. Caudalie Vinoperfect products have been particularly popular, including the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which is incredibly effective at brightening the skin naturally with grapevine extract. Now Caudalie has put all of its patented anti-aging ingredients into one line; the cream of the crop Caudalie Premier Cru line. This includes the Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream which firms, hydrates, brightens and smoothes. Caudalie is really throwing everything it has at Mother Nature. For the rest of the face there’s Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream. With the cream of the crop formula comes a higher price but remember that the formula does contain all three of Caudalie’s patented anti-aging ingredients. In other words, there is nothing more powerful from this brand than the Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream and the Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream.
There’s one more product I would like to recommend for particularly stubborn wrinkles. This one is from Murad. I know that many of you have probably heard of or even used Murad Products. Murad Skin Care is an extensive collection of solutions for most common skin concerns. I recently recommend the Murad resurgence line for women experiencing the “life change” and all of the symptoms that go with it. We have also recommended the Murad active radiance serum and the Murad Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex along with other products. Now I want to draw your attention to Murad Intensive Wrinkle Reducer. This is a patented formula that uses a GlycoNutrient Complex for instant results as well as long term benefits. You get instant results along with long-lasting improvements. It’s the best of both worlds! The even better news is that there is also the Murad Intensive Wrinkle Reducer For Eyes. I’m a firm believer in covering all of your bases so these complementing products are really fabulous. When you use both the Murad Intensive Wrinkle Reducer along with the complementing eye product, you’ll get the best results possible.
Are you at a skin care stand-still? Has your skin changed recently from hormones, environmental attacks, and lack of sleep or just simply in dire need of a pick-me-up?
You can change all that with a simple skin care regimen upgrade. Just add a weekly peel! You do not need to go to a professional skin care practitioner. All you need to do is choose one of the brilliant peel systems below and you will not only see miraculous changes immediately but you will also note dramatic cumulative results as well. Each is for home use and each are highly rated and reviewed.
For superb restorative results any one of these three systems will indeed do the job. They all resurface, repair, renew, enlighten, brighten, firm, polish, renew and more!
For those of you who have oily, combination or dry skin (not for use by those with sensitive skin) you will love MD Formulations My Personal Peel System
. The peel has superior reviews from those who have acneic skin but also desire anti-aging results.
On deck is Ole Henriksen’s Micro Mini Peel System
which is the ultimate in an at-home spa experience. It exfoliates the skin with Almond Polish, renews the skin with Lemon Strip (lactic and glycolic acid formulation), and restores, calms and soothes the skin with Chamomile Comfort Crème.
Rounding out the triple threat is highly rated Hydropeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish and Plump 2 Step
. This anti-aging two-step peel gives you all the benefits one could ask for in a treatment. You’re essentially getting a microdermabrasion, a lunch time peel, skin nourishing and reviving, and precious plumping in two easy steps.
After feeling a little haggard I went a little overboard and took a run with some really harsh products and an “at-home,” yet fairly aggressive chemical peel. Problem is my over-zealousness resulted in red, irritated and dry, flaky skin. I ended up looking worse than I had when I started out. So it wasn’t long before I realized I desperately needed to get my face back into shape with some tender loving care. And nothing speaks gentle and soothing quite like an Atopalm MLE Cream
skin care regimen. MLE stands for ‘Multi-Lamellar Emulsion’ which is a formulation that replenishes precious lipids and restores the skin’s barrier function. In other words, it allows and promotes the skin to do its own repairing.ATOPALM
is a favorite skin care product (and brand) for those with sensitive and/or extremely dry skin. It is also the skincare brand of choice for many who suffer with Eczema and Rosacea. ATOPALM 130 Plus Concentrated Intensive Face Moisturizer
is a new amazing Atopalm product arrival
. It is a paraben, fragrance, alcohol and dye free
formula that infuses healing panthenol which calms and soothes irritated skin along with its patented MLE compound which helps to restore the moisture barrier and hydrates the skin miraculously. This is a medicine chest must-have!
My other favorite new ATOPALM arrival
is their ATOPALM Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes Duo
. These wipes thoroughly cleanse and hydrate the skin with brilliant ease and in one easy step. They remove my makeup, cleanse my face and leave it soft and supple. They are an absolute makeup-bag must-have! They calm and soothe my skin and make it feel so clean and fresh.
I feel like my recent bout with dry, irritated and reddened skin is now a thing of the past and I will never be without either one of these two ATOPALM products
One never truly knows how critical a great pair of tweezers is until one loses them and has to use an old funky cheap pair that couldn’t pull the fat end of a bee stinger out of the back of their left hand!
Can you tell I lost mine recently? Yes, I did. And it was during a weekend get-a-way which included a number of events that required a total and complete polished look from head to toe. So with great trepidation (after realizing I had forgotten to pack them) I dug an old lousy spare pair out of my suitcase. And alas, I couldn’t have plucked a feather from a bird with that tool, much less a hair from my eyebrow.
So I literally stopped at this cute little boutique/salon and seriously hit the mother lode! They actually sold Tweezerman Beauty Tools
! The brilliant pair of tweezers I had left at home was the famous Tweezerman Slant Tweezer in Pink
so I decided to get a different set this time. I couldn’t decide between the Tweezerman Scissortweeze
or the perfect portable set called Tweezerman Brow Duo Kit
so I bought both!! Normally, I would have gotten a big ole case of shopper’s remorse but after a quick tweezing (with both types) when I got back into my car, I was utterly thrilled with my purchase.Tweezerman Scissortweeze
has classic square tips and a very comfortable handle for precise control and the Brow Duo Kit
came in a cute case complete with a mirror. The set comes with a smaller size of their famous slant tweezer
as well as their perfect pointed pair
. Both offer precise control as well as portability and superb quality.
Moral of the story?
Own a couple of pair of Tweezerman Tweezers
… and…Never EVER take your second pair of Tweezerman Tweezers
out of your train case!!
Just when we were thrilled to have access to and get to use professional hair care products by Frederic Fekkai
such as shampoo, conditioning treatments and styling products at home, the brilliant brand is now offering professional hair color for at-home-use as well.Frederic Fekkai Salon Color
is now available at Beauty.com
and is offered in 14 different shades. Frederic Fekkai Salon Color
gets stellar reviews overall as well as for individual particulars such as most natural looking color, ease of use, coverage of gray and for the most professional looking color for at-home or self-use.
The permanent, multi-dimensional hair color comes straight from the talented salon colorists at Frederic Fekkai
. The system is unique in that it uses a bowl and brush application which provides for a much more controlled and even distribution. The simplicity of the kit makes the finished look gorgeous and simply irresistible.
The Frederic Fekkai coloring kit
includes a systematic, methodical and simple approach which achieves the professional salon look straight from your own home. Its three easy steps which take everything into consideration for gorgeous, silky and beautifully colored hair. Step One is pre-treating with a repair treatment which balances out porosity and assures that dry ends will not get over-saturated with color. Step Two is the professional color application and Step Three is a post treatment which is a deep conditioning treatment which adds shine, vibrancy and promotes a smoother, silkier head of healthy hair.
We understand that the audience of Beauty Research is primarily female. However, we always try to fit in an article about men’s products here and there, making sure we aren’t alienating our male followers and stressing the importance of good skin care for the gentlemen in our lives.
Everyone is trying to look younger these days and keep a youthful edge, even the men. But while men will typically lift weights and opt for hair restoration solutions, they frequently don’t think about the importance of good skin for keeping the signs of aging at bay. Ladies, it is our jobs to educate them!
We all know that men like to keep it simple and there’s no reason why good skin care has to involve a lot of fuss. Just encourage your man to stick to the basics and choose good quality products. Molton Brown has an excellent cleanser that is perfect for men. Molton Brown Deep-Clean Mineral Ions Face Wash does more than just cleanse. It actually prepares the skin for shaving. In a way, it’s a multi-tasking product that purifies and also preps. How perfect is that? To prep the skin even further, there’s Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Shave Oil which conditions the skin using natural oils, helping to guard against all of those pesky problems associated with shaving like stinging, nicks and ingrown hairs. Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Shave Oil (part of the Molton Brown Black Pepper collection) is perfect for dry, sensitive types. Molton Brown for men products do an outstanding job at addressing a man’s skin care needs. There is also an extensive collection of other Molton Brown products including Molton Brown shampoo, Molton Brown lotion, Molton Brown body wash, Molton Brown shower gel and Molton Brown hand cream. If you really want to treat someone, consider one of the Molton Brown gift sets available. Molton Brown skin care has an excellent collection of offerings and continues to deliver new items to the market every year.
Most men who shave don’t really think about the shaving cream or gel they use. Trust me, all shaving creams are not all created equal! A top quality product can really make a difference. I recommend Jack Black for men again and again for outstanding results. Jack Black men are cool and confident which is the result of outstanding Jack Black products. Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather doesn’t just produce a great shave, it also treats and protects the skin so that it looks its best and experiences fewer problems. After all, it’s not just about the Jack Black shave, it’s about the condition of the skin following the shave. The Jack Black shaving experience means exceptional smoothness as well as a healthy complexion. Jack Black shaving products are superior quality because they only contain the best ingredients. The Jack Black Beard Lube Conditioning Shave is also a great choice and good alternative to Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather.
So now your man is clean and shaven. What comes next? Healthy skin means treatment and protection. Everyone’s skin is exposed to a host of assailants every day. My recommendation is Jack Black Protein Booster Skin Serum. It goes to work repairing the damage caused by Mother Nature. But it does more than just treat. The serum from the Jack Black skin care collection also protects the skin against further damage to ensure a healthier complexion in the future. Most men can’t stand the idea of using a girly product but this Jack Black cream (or rather serum) soaks in right away and doesn’t leave behind residue or fragrance. Jack Black Protein Booster Skin Serum is simple and easy for the typical no-frills kind of guy.
Jack Black skincare is easy but effective in order to deliver results with minimal effort using no brainer Jack grooming products. Once you hook your man, have him try the Jack Black Eye Balm, the Jack Black Deodorant, the Jack Black Face Moisturizer and the Jack Black Lip Balm. Then teach him the importance of sun protection with Jack Black sunscreen. Jack Black products for men make for an exceptionally well groomed guy with little fuss.
It seems lately that all the rage in health and beauty revolves around health, wellness and taking care of your skin from the inside out. And this, I have to say, has much merit. As we all know, when you’re healthy…you simply glow. When you don’t take care of yourself, it shows!
There is now an oral dietary supplement available at SkinStore.com which seems to work as a protective shield for protecting the skin from sun damage and environmental aging. Heliocare Capsules contain a powerful ingredient known as Fernblock. The formulation works together to protect the skin from photoaging by blocking free radical damage (including reactive O2 species known as ROS). The potent antioxidant supplements from Heliocare Skin Care help to protect the outer skin as well as the inevitable and sometimes fragile immune response, resulting in an increased tolerance to UV rays, reparation of past damage, the promotion of the health of the skin’s DNA and also maintains the youthful elasticity of the skin’s structure.
You can buy Heliocare online at a number of other websites as well including Drugstore.com.
Start protecting the delicate cells of the skin with Heliocare supplements by adding it as an adjunct to your regular sunscreen practice and you will definitely notice an impressive change in your skin.
After writing a number of times on HairMax LaserComb, I noticed recently that there is now a new and improved LaserComb called HairMax LaserComb Premium available on Spalook.com (which is now featuring free shipping for all HairMax devices). It’s as effective as the original but features a new cordless design.
HairMax LaserComb Premium has been featured in major magazines including the professional favorite, New Beauty.
LaserComb is unique in that it’s the only FDA-cleared laser hair growth device and has been proven both clinically and commercially to be 90% effective in both stopping hair loss as well as promoting new growth. More importantly, it is safe to use and may be used at home for personal use. Many users report that they bought the unit because they felt that the “in-office” laser treatments would be much more costly and also say they liked the convenience of “at-home” use. Additionally, no recurring costs such as extra visits are necessary.
Reviews have been exceptional in both efficacy as well as ease of use of the HairMax laser hair comb. One woman remarked that if hers ever breaks she will indeed buy a new one. She said she didn’t like the smell of topical products that were available for use in slowing up hair loss and that she is very impressed with both the diminished loss of hair (as evidenced by no longer finding it in her shower drain) and her new hair growth.
Part two of this HairMax LaserComb series will feature how the HairMax brand laser hair brush works as well as what the set includes. Look for it next week right here on BeautyResearch.com!
After a snarky (albeit according to her "funny") comment from my daughter about how she has absolutely no sun damage anywhere on her body unlike her mother whose “chest is covered with it.” I realized instantly how a supposed little joke wreaked of the dreaded truth.
And yes of course I knew all along I had some marked damage, but I guess I didn’t realize how blatantly bad it looked or that anyone else ever even noticed. Partly because I find myself spending my extra money on products specifically for my face, but also because I just figured all my great body lotions and products were working just fine. However, I found that once again, certain indications and individual areas need targeted specific treatments.
I decided to go with a product from the highly rated and reviewed brand Hydroxatone
. It’s called Hydroxatone Declatone Neck and Décolleté Treatment
and it’s absolutely terrific! The treatment is superb for firming, tightening and brightening the delicate damaged, gravity succumbed skin of the neck and décolleté. It combines potent firming ingredients, copious moisture, a host of brightening agents, and amino acids and calcium to firm, rebuild, restore and repair the skin of the neck and décolleté.
So after a few weeks I had my daughter over for a birthday dinner…and guess what? She noticed the vast improvement! Of course, it didn’t hurt that I deliberately sported a bustier (boost-tyey)-type cut little summer dress!!
When it comes to skin care, if there’s one thing we all want at the end of the day, it’s skin that glows with radiance that exudes youth and health. Every week we talk about solutions for smoothing wrinkles, brightening the complexion and tightening sagginess. However, none of us will ever have perfect skin even after all of our efforts and it’s nice to know there’s help out there to perfect our skin care routines. Of course I am talking about makeup.
Mineral makeup has really changed the way I view cosmetics since it doesn’t just cover up imperfections. Minerals actually make the complexion look healthier. What’s even better is that minerals truly make your skin healthier too. Mineral makeup from top quality brands like bareMinerals and Jane Iredale light up the face, highlighting features and downplaying sallow complexions.
bareMinerals which is also known as Bare Escentuals experienced early success with this new form of cosmetics. The idea behind bare makeup is using pure minerals to leave a flawless finish on the skin. The popularity of bare mineral makeup has exploded and has resulted in bareMinerals cosmetics emerging as an industry leader. bareMinerals Foundation was the original product of the escentuals bare success. The bareMinerals Get Started Kit was then introduced to make it easier for beginners to master the art of bare mineral makeup. I use bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation Medium Beige every day to give my skin a radiant glow and even out my skin tone. I love how healthy my skin looks and the natural sun protection is the icing on the cake. Of course if the bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation Medium Beige isn’t your color, there are many more to choose from! This is a natural coverage foundation so when I need a little extra help to cover blemishes and broken capillaries, I turn to bareMinerals Summer Bisque. This is a bareMinerals Concealer that also contains SPF. The bareMinerals Bisque products make my imperfections disappear before my eyes. bareMinerals Summer Bisque can go under or over the bareminerals SPF15 Foundation. I would definitely recommend bareMinerals Brushes for flawless application.
Jane Iredale is also an industry leader when it comes to cosmetics. Jane Iredale Makeup also uses pure minerals that are good for the skin. Jane Iredale Cosmetics are natural, good-for-your skin products that heal and protect the skin with an even, radiant glow. Jane Iredale mineral formulas are designed to deliver concentrated pigments with no fillers. Jane Iredale Foundation is the hero product of the Jane Iredale make up line, delivering a whole collection of Jane Iredale products for flawless coverage. Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Pressed Mineral Powder SPF 20 – Golden Glow is a fabulous choice for medium skin tones that want a natural glow. This is a sleek compact powder that is highly concentrated to deliver exceptional coverage. When you run out, simply purchase the Jane Iredale PurePressed Mineral Powder SPF 20 - Golden Glow Refill and snap it right into your case. It’s a money saver and you’ll waste less.
Aside from makeup, Jane Iredale has another way to make your skin glow. Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner is a safe alternative to a real suntan, producing streak free natural looking color very subtly. The tan builds over the course of days so that you can control the tone better. You can use Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner on both the face and body.
The most sought after skin care products on the market seem to be those used to treat hyper-pigmentation; and the most highly reviewed and sought after brand seems to be Vivite, the skincare brand offered from Allergan Pharmaceuticals. Therefore, it makes sense that the brand offers many 5 star rated and highly reviewed products including a line dedicated to evening up and smoothing out skin tone.
VIVITE Vibrance Therapy contains a compound composed of 15% glycolic acid and a 0.3% retinol formulation along with licorice and mulberry extracts. The combination of potent ingredients not only smooth away fine lines and wrinkles but also lightens the skin and evens out uneven skin tone and skin discolorations.
The Vibrance Therapy line works brilliantly and in as little as 8 weeks (many people report results even sooner) and uses natural ingredients which are reported to be a much safer alternative than that of hydroquinone (which has been reported to cause adverse reactions and sensitivities in many users).
Use VIVITE Vibrance Therapy once or twice daily (as directed). When used in the morning, apply to cleansed skin before the brand’s Daily Antioxidant Facial Serum. If used at night, apply the restorative cream before VIVITE Night Renewal Facial Cream. This antioxidant rich cream works best when used along with the highly effective VIVITE System.
When it comes to brands with rave reviews...VIVITE takes the cake!

Idebenone the active ingredient in Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage
has been available for use in topical skin care since approximately 2005. The ingredient (molecularly speaking) is the synthetic analog of ubiquinone (aka Co-enzyme Q10 or CoQ10) which has been studied for years to fight heart failure as well as some neurological conditions. The compound is used by the body to participate in cellular production as well as known to be a potent anti-oxidant (meaning it fights and prevents free radical damage).Elizabeth Arden Prevage
contains 0.5% idebenone, which is the concentration in which studies and clinical trials have proven that treat and repairs certain skin conditions such as aging skin (fine lines and wrinkles), dry skin and texture. Elizabeth Arden Prevage
not only treats the skin but protects it from future free radical damage and virtually without the irritation associated with the stronger 1% idebenone found in other preparations such as Prevage MD. In fact, the studies were typically done with 0.5% which suggested that it more than likely works just as well as the more potent 1% idebenone products.
Even more impressive than the fact that the World renowned Elizabeth Arden brand
offers a product which contains the superior Prevage ingredient idebenone, they have also created an entire Prevage line
which revolves around the potent anti-oxidant and are all virtually 5 Star rated. The Elizabeth Arden line
of Prevage products
are reported to get better results than other products which contain well-known and respected antioxidant ingredients such as Co-Q10, alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamin C and or E, and kinetin. Additionally, the products are formulated in such a way as to potentiate the antioxidant repair reversing skin damage as well as future damage prevention.Prevage Face Advanced Anti-Aging Serum by Elizabeth Arden
a potent Prevage (or idebenone formulation) dramatically reduces the signs of aging skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fading age spots, firming up skin tone and elasticity and improving the overall texture.Elizabeth Arden
also has a similar product for the delicate eye area called Prevage Eye Advanced Anti-Aging Serum
. It is used to transform the skin around the eyes to become less lined, more firm, lifted and radiant.
For those of us who seek a daily and night time moisturizer with the unique ingredient, Elizabeth Arden
has us covered. Allure Magazine’s Best of Beauty pick (Best of Skin for Top Splurges) in 2010 as well as Self Magazine’s Healthy Beauty Award 2010 for Sunscreen, were both indeed an Elizabeth Arden Prevage product. Prevage Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30
offers supreme hydration, superior protection and superb reparative properties. And for night-time repair the brand has Prevage Anti-Aging Night Cream by Elizabeth Arden
with Mega Complex-A and a host of other nourishing and moisturizing ingredients formulated into an idebenone compounded cream. Additionally, the night cream potentiates the earlier daytime Prevage regimen promoting a radiant and amazingly younger looking skin.
Lastly, the brand steps back up to the plate with their brilliant Prevage Body Total Transforming Anti-Aging Moisturizer by Elizabeth Arden
. This is another award winning hydrating product which promotes a smoother, firmer transformed skin of the body. Benefits include reparative functions which treat indications such as discoloration, texture, stretch marks, and poor elasticity, with results seen in as little as 6 weeks.
Elizabeth Arden hit’s it right out of the park with their Prevage line…and the reviews and studies prove it!
