A Lifting, Firming Serum That Actually Lives Up to Its Name
By Megan McIntyre |
Let’s Just Get to the Point:
A triply effective anti-aging serum that takes your skin to new, younger-looking heights. It’s skin care that won’t let you (or your face) down.
Aminofill (a patented amino acid derivative), hyaluronic acid, gluconolactone
If You Want to Know More:
Sometimes it can feel like anti-aging creams are a big let down. They offer you big promises around recapturing your skin’s youth, but in the end, many of them are just glorified moisturizers. And as much as we love hydration—it’s a skin care necessity, after all—the fact is that you can’t expect a moisturizer to help you press rewind on the complexion clock.
Enter NeoStrata Skin Active Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum ($100). It’s got not one, not two, but three proven ingredients to give your skin a healthy dose of turn-back-time magic. A patented amino-acid derivative is the star of the show thanks to its ability to rev up collagen production. More collagen equals more volume, which is something the skin starts to lose as it ages. And so follows the sagging, wrinkling and hollowing of your complexion. Hard pass. Healthy collagen creates a firmer structure, meaning skin is plump, taut, and toned—just as it should be.
To battle pigmentation and oxidative damage, the Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum also has a special alphahydroxy acid that increases natural cell turnover. This exfoliating boost results in a more even tone—bye bye age spots.
To round it all off, you’ll also find mega-moisturizing hyaluronic acid; however, it’s not just any HA. Thanks to a low molecular weight, this teeny hydrator penetrates deeper into skin, attracting and holding on to moisture to smooth out uneven texture and diminish the look and feel of fine lines.
In addition to all of the above, it’s a dream to use. It absorbs quickly and it’s lightweight, nonsticky and easy to be layered under your regular routine. Sorry Newton, but gravity doesn’t stand a chance against this power product.
