Resveratrol is the hot new ingredient in the beauty world! Lately, the skin scene is a buzz with new treatments using the powerful phenol. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes among other fruits. The content of resveratrol is increased when fermented which causes red wine to be the most potent source. Although, there is no documented proof that Resveratrol has any effect on cardiovascular disease, cancer or metabolism; it has been proven that Resveratrol can aid with skin protection. Since oxidative stress caused by multiple factors is a major factor in aging, Resveratrol is widely sought after for its antioxidant properties. Although this is no fountain of youth, if you are looking to try this new ingredient, here are a few of our favorites:
Replenix Power of Three Cream is an emollient with a soy phospholipid and hyaluronic acid base, while the Power of Three Serum is a lightweight, fast-absorbing formulation in a hyaluronic acid (humectant) base. Patients can choose the formulation based on their own skin type and preferences.
The majority of patients can experience the benefits of green tea, making this a welcome addition to the practice. Oily skinned and acne patients tend to prefer the serum, while dry skinned and more mature patients prefer the cream.
2. SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E: With age and ongoing aggression, skin accumulates excessive free radical damage and loses its efficiency to effectively repair at night. This compounded effect leads to accelerated signs of damage such of loss of radiance, elasticity, and density.
This antioxidant night concentrate with a maximized concentration of 1% pure, stable Resveratrol, synergistically enhanced with 0.5% Baicalin and 1% Alpha Tocopherol (vitamin E) boosts skin’s own antioxidant defense system to promote its natural nightly repair for improved radiance, elasticity, and density.
3. Arcona Wine Hydrating Mask: This moisture binding mask helps to nourish skin while stimulating cellular renewal, reducing wrinkles, firming and smoothing. Leaves skin feeling supple, soothed and balanced.
Spring is finally here! If you haven’t already, it’s time to start transitioning your skincare routine. If you find that it’s a challenge to select just the right regimen for your skin, you’re not alone. Skin can be very unpredictable — some days you’re more blemish-prone and oily, some days your skin is dry, and to top it all off, your skin has targeted zones that have their own issues (enlarged pores on the t-zone, rough cheeks, dull overall complexion).
• Radiance: helps transform dull skin into a younger-looking, glowing, luminous complexion (featuring Linoleic, Pyruvic, Tartaric, and Glycolic Acids, Retinol, and Quercetin)
• Hydration: helps infuse and seal deep moisture for firmer, softer, smoother-looking skin (with Hyaluronic Chronospheres, Watermelon Extract, and Centella Asiatica)
• Purifying: helps tone and control excess oil; tightens pores for increased clarity (including Willow Bark Extract, Witch Hazel, Lactic Acid)
While you can use them like traditional serums and apply them directly to specific facial zones, the real magic happens when you start mixing your own custom cocktail. After all, if your skin has different needs, why would you treat it the same way every day? Each booster can be mixed into your favorite skincare and makeup products to take their benefits to the next level. That means any existing product you have — moisturizer, foundation, cleanser, anything! — can be totally transformed for your skin’s daily needs. What will you mix with your Clinical Concentrate Boosters?

There’s a product for every skin type and concern in this multi-functional product line. One of my favorite features is the Dry-Finish Technology. These products penetrate the skin leaving no residue and are very lightweight. All of the products in this line are truly effective. I saw instant results with the Dramatic Eye Lift, Wrinkle Reversing Serum and Moisturizing Lift Cream.
What impressed me the most is VitaD Fortified Illumination Duo. A high percentage of Americans have deficiency in vitamin D and don’t even know it. This can contribute to cancers, skin conditions such as rosacea and vitiligo and a host of other problems. The VitaD Topical Elixir helps deliver vitamin D to the skin and stimulates the body to make its own. But not only that, this multi-tasker firms and brightens. I noticed increased firmness upon the second application. I was very impressed, what girl doesn’t like to see results fast!?

Argan oil is in high demand because of its unique benefits and limited supply. It has become increasingly popular recently but the Argan tree has been around for centuries. It is made from the edible part of the nut inside the shell of Argan fruit and is found mostly in Morraco. Argan oil has many uses and it’s no wonder that this rare oil is always in pursuit.
The many reported benefits of Argan oil include anti-inflammatory properties, lowering cholesterol, helping with digestion, sore joints, chickenpox, and of course is great for the skin and hair. It is also thought to reduce stretch marks post pregnancy while hydrating the skin. It also protects the body against ultraviolet radiation and is very anti-aging as it prevents the muscles and skin from degenerating. You can apply it alone to your face, body, and hair or with your favorite moisturizer. You can also add a few drops to your bath for added moisture or massage into nails to repair cuticles.
Argan oil is often referred to as “liquid gold” because it can transform dull, dry and frizzy hair into smooth strong tresses, by penetrating into the shaft or pore of the hair. To use on hair apply a few drops and massage into scalp then comb product through to the ends of the hair. It is recommend wrapping the hair in a towel overnight before washing it out. For soft frizz free locks you can apply a drop to styled hair. If you struggle with dandruff Argan oil can be beneficial for relieving an itchy, dry, and flaky scalp. Argan oil will also extend the life of your hair if color treated by keeping your hair conditioned and protected.
Argan oil is very rich in Vitamin E and Omega 6 so it works great for hydrating and protecting the skin. You can apply the oil directly on the skin and use alone. For really dry skin types it will boost the benefits of your moisturizer by combining the two. Because of its anti-inflammatory benefits, you can use Argan oil on acne prone skin to help with breakouts and irritation.
SkinStore.com has Argan oil made by the organic line Melvita. Melvita’s Argan oil contains 100% of the total ingredients from natural origins, so you can be confident the Argan oil is authentic and pure.
I think we will be seeing more popularity as this wonderful gift of nature continues to intrigue us.
