Puffy, swollen eyes became my new normal, thanks to an unseasonably warm PNW summer, hellish pollen counts, and my inability to lose the COVID 15. Our new I-resQ is specifically designed to help improve puffy eyes.
Sure, you can mix Retinol and Ascorbic Acid skincare. I have applied both simultaneously with no ill-fated consequences – sensitivities, irritation, or blemishes. Just because I can, does not mean that you should. Before blending the two proven and costly skincare, let’s weigh the pros/cons.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a synthetic peptide comprised of the amino acids Lysine and Valine linked with a fatty acid derived from sustainable palm. Topically, it improves skin firmness and elasticity by encouraging collagen synthesis.
Matrixyl®, a trademark of Sederma, represents a range of synthetic, signaling peptides that boosts the skin’s production of collagen, the protein responsible for providing strength and structure. Signaling peptides, or Matrikines, are chemical messengers instructing the cell to perform a specific function, stimulating the skin’s natural process. Derived from the amino acids paired with a fatty acid Palmitic Acid, each form of Matrixyl® delivers distinct benefits, in addition to accelerating collagen production.
Vitamin A is an oil-soluble vitamin critical to healthy immune function, vision, reproduction, and cellular communication. The human body is incapable of synthesizing Vitamin A, relying instead on dietary and/or supplemental replenishment. Applied topically, it speeds cellular turnover, inhibits collagen breakdown, and normalizes keratinization. Multi-faceted skin benefits make it ideal over-the-counter solution for both aging and acne-prone skin.
