Beauty Influencer @bawbby_ reviews new Revivinol Serum, the first dual powerhouse natural alternative to retinol — without the downsides!
“I just finished my 10th use of Revivinol Serum and I couldn’t wait to finally share my thoughts! My main area of concern was this horrible breakout of red bumps I’ve had on my forehead for TWO YEARS. Nothing I tried would fix it, so I covered it with makeup and airbrushing for photos. But after 10 days with this serum, the bumps are GONE and my skin tone has even improved! My entire face looks and feels the best it has in years. I am completely blown away, I thought nothing would ever work for my stubborn skin! I am being 100% honest when I tell you this serum has changed my life. I feel 110% more confident without those unsightly bumps and my red patches.
…this serum is truly amazing and I will continue faithfully using it and recommending it to EVERYONE. Nothing in my life has ever worked as well on my problematic skin as this serum!”

RevivSerums.com Debuts Novel "Unretinol" Serum: Revivinol
First skincare product worldwide with new blend of natural alternatives to retinol
San Francisco, CA (PRUnderground) January 22nd, 2019
RevivSerums.com, a San Francisco-based global leader in cosmetic chemistry innovation, introduces a first-of-its-kind topical product, Revivinol “Unretinol” Serum.
This potent breakthrough serum features Revivinol, a combination of two patented compounds making it the first natural true alternative to age-fighting retinol, without having any of the negative side effects like irritation or sensitivity associated with retinol.
Retinol is renowned for its all-around anti-aging and acne-fighting abilities. But many people find retinol’s side effects (irritation, dryness, peeling, erythema, burning) to be unacceptable, and these side effects often result in non-compliance and discontinuation of therapy.
That’s where Revivinol comes to the rescue.
Revivinol’s dual action components, Sytenol (R) A and Dermapep (tm) A350, are powerful substitutes for retinol and retinoic acid without the negative side effects, and are supported by strong efficacy data shown to help reverse the appearance of wrinkles, mottled hyperpigmentation, and age-related changes. Its retinol-like activity helps support skin’s natural collagen synthesis and an anti-aging effect against environmental stimulus like UV irradiation. Great for all skin types, even sensitive, it does not irritate or make skin photosensitive like retinoids, so it may be used during the day.
Revivinol Serum also targets damaging UV, infra-red, and blue light radiations from phones, tablets and computers, as well as pollutants in the air, with the remarkable compound LUMICEASE BLUE.

“As the first company worldwide to bring such a product to market, we are delighted to augment our popular and superbly effective range of skincare serums with such a remarkable ‘unretinol’ product,” noted Vance Nesbitt, Reviv Serums’ ”Director of Lotions and Potions” and principal formulator. “Revivinol Serum is also packed with a deep hydration active that lasts an amazing 72 hours, and a biomimetic peptide based on a sea anemone protein which reduces the appearance of skin irritation and redness.”
Revivinol “Unretinol” Serum is available immediately at RevivSerums.com here, which ships to many countries worldwide with free shipping, and at select retailers, e-tailers, salons, medspas and physician’s offices.
Its release coincides with Indie Beauty Expo Los Angeles, the biggest independent beauty trade event in the world.

In pursuit of perfect skin, we try countless serums and creams, book elaborate facials, and chug water religiously, yet there’s a beyond-simple fix that has been staring us in the face all this time: giving up (or significantly cutting back on) alcohol—which we’ve long known is no health elixir, but has a perhaps unexpected impact on our complexions, in particular.
“Alcohol is actually one of the worst, most aggressive compounds to destroy your skin,” says New York nutritionist Jairo Rodriguez, who counts designers and Vogue editors among his clients. “I always joke with my patients, ‘If you want to get older, go ahead and drink!’ ” Here, Rodriguez breaks down the exact effects alcohol can have on your skin and how, when you do indulge, to imbibe in the best possible way.
Dehydration Is the Issue . . .
“Drinking is classified as two drinks a day. There’s a huge amount of damage to the skin that occurs; alcohol affects any mucous membrane from the pancreas and liver to the skin. The first effect is dehydration, as it actually takes all the fluid out of the skin. If you look at a woman who has been drinking for 20 or 30 years, and a woman the same age who hasn’t at all, we see a massive difference in the skin—more wrinkles from that dehydration damage, which can make you look 10 years older.”
. . . Inflammation, Too
“Alcohol inflames the tissue, and systemic inflammation to the skin caused by alcohol creates a histamine reaction—that creates the redness, the flushing of the skin. At first you think, oh you’re a little red, not a big deal, but over a period of time—six months, a year, two years—if you continue drinking, it can become a prominent facial redness you can’t get away from.”
You Can Bounce Back—Within Reason
“If you do give it up, the good thing is that your skin, like any other organ, has the ability to regenerate. The body has a fabulous rate of rehydration. But that regeneration depends on how much damage has been done. If you’ve been drinking for 15 to 20 years and stop, I think it’s great, but can you regenerate your skin back to [that of] a normal 50-year-old? Once you destroy the collagen, it is hard to get back.”
Choose Your Liquor Wisely
“People are going to drink, whether you like it or not, so what is the best alcohol to drink? Different alcohols have different effects on the skin, but as a general rule, the clearer, the better: Vodka, gin, and tequila get out of your system quicker. If you’re going to drink anything, in my opinion, drink vodka that doesn’t have a grain in it, like a potato vodka. It’s a lot clearer and smoother, so it gets in and out of your body, no problem.”
Drink Every Other Day—Or Less
“So, when you’re 20 years old and drink, that drink leaves your body in about three hours. When you’re 40 years old, it takes an average of 33 hours. If your transit time is three hours, that means you can drink on Monday and by Tuesday, it’s out of your body. If you’re 40 and you drink on Monday, don’t drink until Wednesday. Minimize to once or twice a week—the lower the intake, the lower the damage to your skin.”
“If you’re going to drink, drink water with it to increase that diuretic effect. I think mothers have been saying that for the last 2,000 years, but nobody listens if your mother says it.”
[Of course, we'd also highly recommend our remarkable TelomErase 6-in-1 Multi-Corrective Serum with triple telomere targeters as part of the arsenal against alcohol's effect on skin. See its product page here.]

Vitamin C: You know it’s—spoiler alert—a vitamin, you probably reach for it when you’re starting to feel a cold coming on, and chances are, you may have dabbled with a drop or two of it in your skin care at some point. So why is this standard ingredient that’s kind of always around not always applauded for all the many things it does? “It’s definitely an underrated and unsung ingredient that people think is passé,” says New York dermatologist Dennis Gross, MD, who is launching a new line devoted completely to the ingredient this week. “But it’s been reengineered and advanced and it’s more important than ever for anyone who wants to have beautiful, younger-looking skin. It’s part of the magic potion—it is such a powerful anti-ager with a broad spectrum of benefits.”
Benefit #1: It’s an Antioxidant A-Lister
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, an often-thrown-around term that sounds good, but not always totally straightforward to understand in relation to aging and the skin. To break it down, New York dermatologist Dendy Engelman, MD, says to look at antioxidants as “skin protectors.” They fight against free-radical assaults (things like UV rays, sun exposure, pollution and cigarette smoke) by neutralizing oxidative stress that causes cell damage, which, in excess and over time, results in signs of aging. “Free-radical scavengers are in search of a missing electron. Antioxidants like vitamin C neutralize the damage by donating their electron, thus minimizing the damage a free radical can do on skin proteins such as collagen or elastin,” she says, adding that the more antioxidants present in skin, the less damage free radicals can inflict, which is directly tied to better skin health and a more youthful appearance.
Benefit #2: It’s a Collagen-Booster
Perhaps the most unique benefit of vitamin C is the fact that it has the ability to boost collagen. “We talk about lines, wrinkles, laxity, loose skin, crow’s-feet. All of those things boil down to collagen—it is the holy grail of youth,” Dr. Gross says. “It’s a structural protein in the skin that gives it its firmness. You have an abundance of it when you are younger, but you lose it as you age and that’s what leads to those lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C stimulates collagen—it works on the cells in the skin that have become lazy with age and tells them to make more collagen.” As he also stresses, vitamin C is the only collagen stimulator that can boast of having antioxidant properties. “So it’s not only simulating your own collagen, but it’s protecting it as well.”
Benefit #3: It Can Help With Pores
Dr. Gross says you can scrub until “the cows come home,” but most products won’t do much to help with the appearance of your pores. “Pores can look large because of the collagen loss. By stimulating collagen and thickening your skin, vitamin C can help pores look smaller and better.”
Benefit #4: It’s a Big-Time Skin Brightener
In addition to protecting against UVA/UVB exposure, vitamin C also lightens pigmentation and brightens skin tone. “It works directly on the mechanism that causes uneven skin tone—sun spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation; all those things that cause uneven color in your skin,” Dr. Gross says. Plus, as Dr. Engelman points out, you can safely wear it during the day and add it to your normal nighttime regimen. Her tip: Start young with a moisturizer containing an antioxidant complex, such as vitamin C. (She recommends Nerium Age-Defying Day Cream, AD Formula, Skinceuticals C E Ferulic and Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum.)
Benefit #5: It’s Potent When Applied to Skin
As Dr. Gross explains, when you apply vitamin C to your skin, it’s a lot more concentrated of a dosage when compared to taking it orally. “It is so much stronger when applied directly. You would have to take so many milliliters of vitamin C orally to actually reach your skin that you would get sick. Topical application of vitamin C is so much more powerful in terms of what it’s going to do for your skin.”
Benefit #6: It Pairs Nicely With Retinol
The bottom line: “Vitamin C and retinol are two gold standards for skin care,” says Dr. Engelman, adding that they both do different things. “While both reduce signs of aging, vitamin C acts as a protector for your skin and neutralizes issues before there is a problem and improves current skin conditions. Retinols act as an ‘exfoliating’ tool to rid the skin of damaged cells and stimulate production.” Adds Dr. Gross, “Retinol is not like vitamin C. It’s not an antioxidant and it’s not a direct stimulator of collagen. I recommend using both.”
