Among the most popular products offered by the Life Extension Buyers Club has been the Rejuvenex line of skin care formulas, created by Prof. Carmen Fusco.
The original Rejuvenex has 25 years of research behind it, and has been reformulated several times to incorporate the latest research findings on the causes and prevention of skin damage. Rejuvenex Facial Cleanser
is an ideal preparation for the application of Rejuvenex Cream
Now, the Rejuvenex line has been extended with two new products offered through the Life Extension Buyers Club. The Dream Cream
by Rejuvenex is an intensive nighttime rejuvenating treatment for the face and neck.
Dr. Nicholas Hall, director of the Institute for Health and Human Performance, notes that it is during slow-wave "delta sleep" that our bodies recover from the stress and fatigue of daily living. The Dream Cream is designed to work during this period.
In addition to RNA for cell energy, and vitamins A, C and E for antioxidant effect, the formula also contains DHEA and melatonin in a topical formula based on research published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
is shown to have a softening effect on rough, dry areas when applied topically. Dry, flaky skin is diminished, and a softened look is enhanced. Especially well-researched has been the essential role of antioxidants in healing and protecting the skin.
In addition, vitamin E acetate,
also contained in Dream Cream, reduces swelling in laboratory experiments. Tocopherols and their acetates, when applied topically, protected against swelling, redness, skin sensitivity and skin wrinkling.Melatonin
is a proven free-radical scavenger, and protects against harmful UV skin damage and aging.
Another product from Rejuvenex and Prof. Fusco, Vitaleyes Eye Cream,
rounds out the Rejuvenex lineup for the skin. While Rejuvenex topical skin cream is a potent anti-aging weapon for the face and body, the skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate, and requires specialized care.About Skin Aging
The most important thing to do to prevent skin aging is to protect your skin from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. That means wearing a sun screen every time you go outdoors. If you look at the skin in areas of your body not exposed to the sun, you'll see that it is far more youthful than your face and hands, which are chronically bombarded with UV light.
The oral intake of antioxidants, especially the proanthocyanidin flavonoid found in grape seed-skin extract,
can boost the production of collagen and elastin. Grape seed-skin extract also provides broad-spectrum protection against damaging free radicals that cause proteins in the skin to crosslink and form wrinkles.Vitamin-C
taken orally and applied topically enhances collagen production and protects against free radicals. The average dose of grape seed-skin extract to protect against skin aging is 200 mg a day, along with several thousand milligrams of vitamin-C. The grape seed-skin extract we recommend contains 50 mg of pharmaceutical-grade extract, along with 250 mg of vitamin-C from buffered calcium ascorbate.
Skin plays an important role in immunity. Boosting the health of the skin increases the natural rate of cell renewal and repair. Epidermal growth factors encourage young cells to replace old cells in the upper layers of the skin. The stimulation of epidermal growth factors is one of the mechanisms responsible for the anti-aging effects of the prescription drug Retin-A.
Aging causes the skin to lose such moisturizing components as NaPCA, lactic acid and hyaluronic acid, required for skin cells to retain moisture. Replacing these natural moisturizing factors topically can produce a youthful, moistening effect in dry, aged skin. Skin damaging free radicals can be suppressed by the topical application of such antioxidants as vitamin-E, vitamin-C and EDTA.
A well-documented mechanism of skin aging is the accumulation of dead cells at the surface of the skin. Young skin rapidly produces fresh skin cells that move to the surface to replace old, damaged cells, but aged skin forms a natural glue that binds to dead skin cells and prevents them from sloughing off.
The topical application of alpha-hydroxy fruit acids can gently remove dead cells at the surface of aged skin and more quickly expose the young cells underneath. The effects of the daily application of alpha-hydroxy fruit acids are to reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, and expose more youthful appearing skin cells. The topical application of RNA and yeast cell wall extracts can stimulate greater production of youthful skin cells, thus increasing the appearance-enhancing effect of the alpha-hydroxy acids.
You can purchase many different commercial products at very high prices that can provide, individually, these well-documented anti-aging factors, or you can obtain all of them in a product called Rejuvenex, which includes alpha-hydroxy fruit acids, the complete moisturizing complex, cell-renewing nutrients such as retinyl palmitate, RNA, a special yeast cell wall extract, topical antioxidant vitamins, epidermal growth factors, and a light sun screen to protect against daily indoor and outdoor ultraviolet light exposure.
For those seeking a highly potent alpha-hydroxy skin product, a formula designed by Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw called Living Skin
provides high concentrations of all the alpha-hydroxy fruit acids that have shown an anti-wrinkling effect.
In a double-blind randomized study, the topical application of melatonin suppressed UV-induced erythema, a marker of skin aging damage. A distinct dose-response relationship was observed between the topical dose of melatonin and the degree of UV-induced erythema. The scientists suggested that the topical application of melatonin might open a new approach in the prevention and control of free radical-influenced skin diseases.Read more about Rejuvenex Dream Cream.Order Rejuvenex Dream Cream.Order Rejuvenex Facial Cleanser.Order Rejuvenex Vitamin Enriched Anti-Aging Skin Cream.Order Rejuvenex Body Lotion Cream.Read more about Vitaleyes.Order Vitaleyes.Read more about Living Skin.Order Living Skin.Review Dr. Nicholas Perricone's list of supplements recommended in his book, The Wrinkle Cure.Read about other skin, eye, and hair care products.
