Most products positioned as “anti-aging” products promise to minimize, and even erase, the manifestations of skin aging, such as wrinkles. There are products that can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, but no wrinkle is completely curable. A better approach would be to treat skin aging at the source by addressing the actual biochemical reactions that trigger these changes in skin before
Dermalogica is introducing AGE Smart, which works by impacting the main biochemical reactions that manifest the signs of skin aging: the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS – also known as free radicals), the generation of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the development of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs).
Encourage firmness, elasticity and hydration while helping to defend against the primary causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer with SPF30.
Achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer with SPF30. A patented polypeptide combined with Glucosamine and Soy stimulates collagen synthesis, enhances the skin’s natural ability to fight skin-aging free radicals (Reactive Oxygen Species) and helps prevent the signs of aging caused by sugar reacting with proteins in skin (AGEs). White Tea polyphenols regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays while tripeptides, stabilized Vitamin C, Yeast Extract and Phytoestrogens help catalyze the skin’s natural collagen production to enhance skin firmness. Advanced sunscreen technology provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.
Arginine/Lysine Polypeptide acts as a sugar trap, binding sugars in the body to prevent the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs) that lead to stiff, cross-linked collagen.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a skin-firming peptide that overrides the inhibitory effects of MMPs on collagen synthesis. Activates tissue growth factor (TGF), a peptide that is required in its active state for collagen production to occur.
Glucosamine fights AGEs while stimulating formation of Hyaluronic Acid and collagen in skin. Inhibits melanin formation to help control age-related hyperpigmentation.
Provides long-lasting hydration and reinforces skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish.
