SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
All of our serums perform different functions,
and all of them can work together.
A few of them pair together more intuitively.
Here's a breakdown.
FOR HAIR & SCALP
All of our hair stimulating products work wonderfully together.
• Our "hero product" RevivHair Stimulating Serum is applied daily, and is a leave-in serum.
• RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque is a pre-shampoo serum and is left on the scalp for 10-30 minutes before shampooing.
• Our RevivHair Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner and remarkable new RevivHair Placode Booster Serum (used 3-4 times a year) round out this product line perfectly.
• RevivLash Lash & Brow Stimulating Serum targets eyelash & eyebrow density & fullness.
We recommend using all these products together to address hair loss and thinning hair issues. For the budget-conscious, landmark RevivHair Stimulating Serum would be the first choice.
FOR THE FACE
Our latest invention, TelomErase 6-in-1 Multi-Corrective Serum is the current benchmark. We recommend this stellar treatment serum to all our customers.
TelomErase Serum has the same base as our very-popular Ultimate Serum, but also has instant skin tightening, more wrinkle blurring, and the latest in long-term anti-aging telomere support. It is also even more moisturizing than the Ultimate Serum. Many customers have "graduated" to this new serum.
Not to discount renowned Ultimate Serum: it has a number of novel ingredients not found in TelomErase, like alpha-arbutin for brightening and extra stem cells, growth factors & peptides for long-term anti-aging. It's also a favorite of customers who have previously used TNS® Essential Serum from SkinMedica®. If you use these two serums together, we recommend TelomErase in the morning, and Ultimate Serum at night.
Phloretin Serum is unique, and a rather standalone product that we always recommend. Both TelomErase Serum and Ultimate Serum contain a Vitamin C Ester, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, but it is in small concentration compared to our Phloretin Serum. We lose a teaspoon of collagen from our faces every year after age 30, and vitamin C is required to build that collagen. The "gold standard" is ascorbic acid, included with the Phloretin Serum. Because of its low pH, it cannot be included in most other products because it would negatively affect actives like growth factors, peptides, and other delicate proteins, and it would degrade quickly if we were to buffer the pH. Its low pH is also why it works so well, since it has an exfoliating effect in addition to collagen building.
Here's a blog post about the subject: All about Vitamin C Serums, and why ours is best
We recommend waiting at least thirty minutes after applying the Phloretin Serum before applying our TelomErase Serum, Ultimate Serum or any product that contains delicate growth factors since the lower pH of the Phloretin Serum (even at 5% strength, and especially at 20% strength) may lessen the effectiveness of the growth factors. We recommend the following regimen: applying the Phloretin Serum in the morning, and the growth factor serum(s) at night.
Since hydration is different than moisturization, and most skin is dehydrated, we also always recommend our remarkable HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum for hydration & plumping, as well as its anti-pollution & anti-stress effects (one of the great benefits of the award-winning Neurophroline® ingredient).
Our Copper Healing Serum contains a great copper peptide that is a wonderful active for skin. Because it generally cannot be combined in high concentration with vitamin C, it is a standalone product. It is not necessary to apply the copper peptide in the Healing Serum every day to achieve results (targeting inflammation, healing, and overall rejuvenation). You might reserve daily use of Healing Serum more to address specific, acute issues that may arise, like irritation, sunburn, rash, windburn, post-procedure, etc.
OTHER PARTS OF THE BODY
All of our facial serums can be used on the neck, hands and chest. TelomErase Serum can be applied to the upper eyelid area, but be careful not to get it in your eyes.
Our RevivSculpt Transforming Body Serum is, of course, meant for the body, but can also be used on the face although it is a bit occlusive.
All our facial serums can be applied to the lips with the exception of Phloretin Serum.
Further questions about how our product work together?! Send us a note.
The skin on the back of your hands is often exposed to UV sun damage, and it can be especially evident since the skin is thinner there. Age spots, seborrheic keratosis, and even precancerous lesions can occur over time.
Here are some tricks to prevent and even reverse such sun damage:
Obviously, always wear broad spectrum sunscreen on your hands. That's a given. Realize that washing your hands will often wash off sunscreen and so will rubbing/use that occurs throughout the day, so reapply often when you know you'll be in the sun. When that's not possible, try only washing the palm side of your hands. That's the area that needs washing the most anyway.
Gloves work well too of course, especially if you're laboring outside. Be sure to choose a pair that does not have mesh, so that your hands are good and covered.
To help reverse the damage that's already occurred, use our Phloretin Serum with Ferulic and Alpha Lipoic Acid. It can work wonders on age spots and help create taunt, clear, healthy skin everywhere including your hands.
Collagen is a vital underlying structural support for your skin. As we age, the skin loses that more and more of that support, resulting in a loss of elasticity and firmness. Skin becomes weaker and thinner, and wrinkles set it. Here's how to help prevent collagen loss. Note that both our Ultimate Serum and Phloretin Serum contain ingredients shown to target collagen stimulation.
