Glycolic Acid And Natural Antioxidants From Physicians Only
By Marie Czenko Kuechel, NewBeauty Editor-at-Large |
Vivité is the newest skincare introduction by Allergan Medical, makers of physician-only skincare treatments MD Forte, Prevage MD and the anti-aging prescription Avage. Combining the well-known benefits of glycolic acid, as found in MD Forte, Vivité adds a new twist: the natural antioxidant benefits of pomegranate, green tea, olive leaves, vitamins A, C and E, and the power of peptides to promote moisture and stimulate collagen production, all with 10-20% glycolic concentrations.
The uncomplicated approach involves exfoliating scrub, day serum (add your own sunscreen over it), night cream and eye treatment. It smells great, is non-greasy and absorbs well. While the glycolic strength is high, the antioxidants are gentle-even sensitive skin types will benefit. The most visible effects of Vivité: improved hydration and smoother skin texture, all without harsh chemicals.
