Sooner or later, sun exposure, pollution and stress—to say nothing of the inevitable natural aging process—all leave their mark on our skin. A tired, washed-out complexion, lines that seem noticeably deeper and an overall loss of radiance are a few of the inescapable signs that you may see when you look in the mirror. But why not look on the bright side? OurGlytone Anti-aging Serum ($120 / 1 Fl. Oz.) from the high-performing Antioxidant range, a collection of technologically-advanced skin rejuvenators powered with high concentrations of time-released, stabilized Vitamins C and E and Red Tea Flavonoids for exceptional antioxidant protection, can give you a considerable edge in reclaiming your glow and significantly reducing the visible signs of aging. Much more than “icing on the cake,” a good age-defying serum is now recommended by top dermatologists as essential to any effective anti-aging skin care regimen.
“Many creams basically target the skin cells that are in the upper layers, closer to the surface of the skin,” says Jeannette Graf, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, NY. “A serum, however, is made up of highly concentrated, targeted ingredients designed to penetrate immediately into the deeper layers of the skin.” An important advantage: “Depending on the serum, you can get various degrees of high-performance anti-aging active ingredients,” says Dr. Graf. “And when you apply a moisturizer over serum, this enhances the benefits of both the serum and the moisturizer for optimal results.” What should you look for when scoping out serums?
“You want a serum that is formulated to step up the production of collagen, the protein fiber essential to giving skin the support it needs to stay firm and supple,” says Dr. Graf. “You also want protection against free radical damage to help protect existing collagen from aging.” Keep in mind that sunlight isn’t the only environmental aggressor that can unleash free radicals. Pollution, cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes from cars, trucks and buses, stress and even intensive exercise are also triggers.
A few drops of Glytone Anti-aging Serum smoothed on the face and neck every morning deliver powerful antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. For optimal benefits, apply it under your broad-spectrum sunscreen. Formulated for normal to oily complexions, our silky, lightweight serum features a synergistic combination of clinically-proven ingredients, including the antioxidant powerhouse, Red Tea Flavonoids (Rooibos), proven to be 30% more effective than green tea to offset everyday environmental damage.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, the most technologically advanced form of time-released Vitamin C, is more efficient at improving collagen synthesis and free radical protection than the standard form of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid).Patented Delta Tocopheryl Glucoside, the most advanced form of time-released Vitamin E, delivers higher levels of the antioxidant Vitamin E to the skin than any other form of Tocopheryl.
To optimize benefits, consider making Glytone Anti-aging Serum your first step in a skin-smoothing antioxidant skin care regimen that includes Glytone Anti-aging Cream ($89 / 1.7 Fl. Oz.), Anti-aging Eye Cream ($52 / 0.5 Fl. Oz.) and Anti-aging Night Cream ($89 / 1.0 Fl. Oz.)—all exclusive to physicians. Dermatologists also recommend Glytone Anti-aging Serum as part of effective adjunctive at-home care following the Glytone by Enerpeel® PA (Pyruvic Acid 50%) Peel System, a breakthrough in-office exfoliating peel for premature signs of aging and acne offering maximum results with maximum tolerance.
For smooth, glowing, visibly younger-looking skin, it pays to be serious about serums—that is, Glytone Anti-aging Serum.
