Double Duty Skin Care
Good skin requires a multifaceted approach to healthy maintenance because there are so many physiological challenges our bodies are trying to address. There are two ways in which your skin is negatively impacted. The first way is intrinsically; as we age we don’t produce as much collagen, elastin, or growth factors as we did when we were young. The second way our skin is impacted is extrinsically; by the sun and the environment which release harmful toxins that break down collagen and deplete our stored antioxidants. The impact of intrinsic and extrinsic aging is fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, poor overall tone of the skin and age spots, also known as hyperpigmentation.
For the perfect anti-aging skin care regimen we not only need to replenish our skin with vital nutrients, we also need to prevent the further breakdown of these healthy skin essentials.
Some of the key ingredients that help with this process are as follows:
Growth Factors are proteins that affect the growth and the activity of cells. Growth factors are inherent in our bodies and play a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin.
Antioxidants are important to give the skin cells ample protection against the destructiveness of free radicals.
Peptides reduce the signs of aging by increasing collagen production, thereby making the skin thicker and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Many skin care products contain several different peptides, which is probably the best route to go if you want to add peptides to your skin care regimen.
Skin Lighteners work to inhibit the production of melanin. A major effect of extrinsic aging is brown spots often called hyperpigmentation which comes from sun damage and inflammation. Hyperpigmentation occurs when an excess of melanin (brown pigment) forms deposits in the skin.
A product that helps to incorporate all of these ingredients into one application is SkinMedica's TNS Essential Serum™, a revolutionary, all-in-one anti-aging skin care treatment that takes the whole process of aging into account. This dual-chamber product combines the unparalleled TNS Recovery Complex; the gold standard in topical growth factor products, and APS Corrective Complex, a potent mixture of three novel peptides, seven antioxidants and a powerful lightening agent.
The two formulas work in synergy to transform and regenerate your skin for a youthful glowing appearance—an essential result for every anti-aging regimen. TNS Recovery Complex can also be found in SkinMedica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream and SkinMedica TNS Night Eye Repair.
