Today’s review: PCA Skin’s Intensive Age Refining Treatment®
I recently went to the Skin Inc. Face and Body Spa Expo and picked up some of the latest and greatest skin care products available on the market today and PCA SKIN’s Intensive Age refining Treatment® is one of them.
I love reviewing anti-aging products, makes me feel like there’s hope. Well, actually there is…
PCA SKIN® has introduced OmniSome® the next generation of retinol formulas targeting not only aging but acne and discoloration as well. It’s so great that it won Oprah’s Magazine Spring Beauty O-Wards for 2016.
Here’s why: When it comes to anti-aging, there are only so many topical ingredients that can penetrate the skin and be effective.
What happens when we age is our cellular turnover slows down and we accumulate more and more dead skin cells so the happy and healthy collagen skin cells can’t be stimulated to make it’s way to the surface, and that’s when the dullness and fine lines start to appear.
One of those few ingredients that is scientifically proven to combat aging is retinol which is a member of the vitamin A family.
Why can’t I just take vitamin A supplements or eat foods high in Vitamin A you ask?
According to PCA SKIN’s website, your skin is the last organ to get the vitamins you consume, so relying solely on diet won’t provide many vitamin A benefits to the skin. Topical application is the best way to reap the many anti-aging and healthy skin benefits that vitamin A has to offer.
So when you purchase a retinol cream or treatment, you want one that can penetrate the skin to do the job it’s supposed to do!
PCA SKIN’s patented 10-hour time-release OmniSome® delivery system in the Intensive Age Refining Treatment stabilizes and carries a unique blend of ingredients deeper into the skin for superior results. This innovative formula minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, is one of the best treatments for acne and reduces age-related skin yellowing. It has 0.5% of pure retinol and a delivery system that is often used in pharmaceuticals.
After only three applications of The Intensive Age Refining Treatment, my skin has never looked so good. There was a mild exfoliation which was perfect for my sensitive skin. My skin looked refreshed-like I got a good night’s sleep (which I definitely didn’t). My skin was so smooth my makeup went on more evenly and looked more natural.
Bottom Line: This is the perfect retinol for almost anyone’s skin care regimen at home. I highly recommend it as an anti-aging treatment and acne treatment. The great thing about it is that you’ll get great results from using it only a few times a week. PCA SKIN recommends for those new to retinol, start by using only three nights per week, gradually increasing to more frequently as your skin can tolerate. Use moisturizer over it at night and always use sunscreen during the day and you’re off to healthy and great looking skin!
