Fact vs. Fiction

Fact or fiction? If I use a moisturizer, I won’t get wrinkles.

Fiction. While moisturizers provide vital hydration to the skin, they alone cannot prevent wrinkles. The best defense includes sunscreen to help prevent sun damage and extrinsic aging, as well as a variety of cosmeceuticals, which can help to improve the quality of the skin, including diminishing the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles.

Top 5 Ingredients for Fighting Wrinkles:

Broad Spectrum Sunscreen. A good broad-spectrum sunscreen that guards against both UVA and UVB rays is essential if you want to stave off the signs of aging. Even if you’re only exposed to the sun 20 minutes a day, you should protect your skin every day. Those 20 minutes add up to two straight weeks or 14 eight-hour days of exposure over the course of a year. Make sure you use an SPF of at least 15; SPF 30 is ideal. And, of course, reapply with an ample amount to sufficiently cover the skin. There is no all-day protection.

Retinol. Retinol helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores and encourage firmer-looking skin. The result is visibly fewer superficial lines, brighter skin and improved elasticity.

Glycolic acid. Use of this alpha hydroxy acid results in a smoother skin surface, softening of fine wrinkles and a refined appearance of pores.

Peptides. Peptides can help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and encourage firmer-looking skin..

Hyaluronic acid. While naturally abundant in young skin, this humectant diminishes as we age. Hyaluronic acid helps plump the skin and soften the appearance of wrinkles.

  1. Does your anti-aging regimen have all of the above ingredients to help with wrinkles hyperpigmentation? What would you suggest for these issues. I am 62 and feel I have tried so many products that do not deliver on promises. I have used 300.00 creams down to drug store brands. Would love to find a skin care line that actually worked and I could finally stop throwing money away!! Thanks for any help you can give.

    1. Janet,
      Did anyone answer your question? I can send you a list of ingredients in our products. Also, all our products have a 60 day guarantee, so if you are not completely happy the products can be returned for a full refund of the product. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

  2. I’m new to using RF, and found that when I go running and sweat, my face burns. I assume its the salt. Does that go away over time?? My skin is also a bit dry and starting to flake. I’m 3 weeks in, using the Reverse in the am and the Redefine eye cream and Night Renewing Serum in the evening..

  3. I would like for you guys to develop a sunless tanner that can even out skin tone and adjust itself so that freckles and dark spots don’t absorb the color but lighter skin woukd. They have make ups that adjust to your skins color. It would be cool if you can figure out how to do this with a self tanner.
