Reset your skin back to its HEALTHIEST, GLOWIEST and most BALANCED STATE, with dermatologist developed SkinMedica – Skincare that get results.

California-based SkinMedica offers a range of dermatologist-developed skin-care products aimed at the symptoms of ageing skin, such as wrinkles and skin discolouration.
As skin ages, elasticity decreases, lines appear and overall appearance is diminished. SkinMedica products contain scientifically proven recovery compounds that include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS — a patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins. The impact is clear beautiful skin.

GlyPro Antioxidant Serum

This is an excellent AHA exfoliant that contains glycolic acid, arguably the most well researched AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) ingredient. It a silky serum texture, but make no mistake, this is the exfoliant step in your routine. Those wanting a comprehensive anti-aging routine will want to follow with a usual serum, but in terms of taking a shortcut, GlyPro Antioxidant Serum contains a good mix of antioxidants and sodium hyaluronate, so could stand in on nights where you want to apply fewer products.

The plant-based antioxidants in this fragrance-free exfoliant helps reduce potential irritation and these beneficial ingredients are joined by soothing plant extracts. Along with the lightweight hydrating ingredients also present, this product can make good on its claim of providing a more vibrant, luminous texture.

Lytera Skin Brightening Complex

This skin-lightening product contains an impressive amount of niacinamide along with stabilized vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate), two ingredients that improve discolorations. Also formulated with retinol and licorice root, which also have research confirming their ability to lighten discolorations, among other benefits. In essence, this skin-lightening product stands a very good chance of giving you a more even skin tone as claimed!

As with any skin-lightening product, its effectiveness is tied to how diligent you are about protecting your skin from sun damage. That means applying a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater (and greater is better when brown spots are your concern) every day, rain or shine, clouds or full sun. It really is that important—and you will be amazed how much better your skin looks and acts overall when it is protected from further sun damage.

Retinol Complex 1.0

Retinol Complex 1.0 is an exemplary, high-strength (This is potent stuff!) retinol product !
Along with anti-aging superstar retinol (the 1.0 in the name refers to the strength of this vitamin A ingredient), you’re getting an outstanding mix of antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients, and repairing agents—all in packaging that keeps these beneficial ingredients stable and effective during use.  This product can produce results equivalent to prescription retinoid products, yet readily available to you!

The claims of enhancing skin tone, texture, and resiliency while diminishing lines and wrinkles are absolutely true and 100% possible with this product! The strength of this retinol product is considerably higher than most over-the-counter retinol products, so  follow instructions and pay close attention to how your skin responds, adjusting frequency of application as needed. Also, you must be prepared to protect your skin every day with a product rated SPF 30 or greater—any anti-aging routine must include daily sun protection or you simply won’t get the results you want.

Rejuvenative Moisturiser

Rejuvenative Moisturiser is an outstanding moisturiser for normal to dry skin. It is formulated with Vitamin E, but this also contains stabilised vitamin C, tocotrienols, plant-based anti-irritants, and notable emollients. This does contain fragrance, but that’s forgivable considering the tiny amount and the abundance of good-for-skin ingredients. It is an outstanding moisturiser that takes great care of dry skin showing signs of aging.
