Vitamin C line of products provide ANTI-AGING BENEFITS In addition to its brightening, toning, and evening benefits, Vitamin C also has many anti-aging benefits as well. Our dermatologist recommended, clinically proven Vitamin C line with stabilized Vitamin C can help even discoloration from age spots and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is also essential to collagen production. Collagen decreases as we age which leads to fine line and wrinkles in our skin. Vitamin C also helps protect the skin from free radicals that can damage collagen, helping skin to look plumper, brighter and more youthful.
To smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, try our Vitamin C Instant Radiance Facial Peel with Citrus Fruit Peel Puree and Glycolic Acid. This radiance boosting peel helps to resurface and smooth skin’s texture to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. After just one use, skin is left healthier looking with a youthful vibrant glow. To use, apply a thin layer once per week after cleansing. Avoid eye area and do not apply on broken or irritated skin. Apply to the face, neck, décolleté, and tops of hands and leave on for 3-5 minutes, use provided mini spoon to remove the peel while massaging the skin. Rinse with cool water to neutralize peel (slight tingling after application is normal). "
5. I've been using Derma E Scar gel for about a month now, when will I see its effect to lighten scars caused by mosquito bites?
"Results can be seen in as little as 3 weeks for mild skin concerns and improved appearance benefits will continue to increase with continued usage. For older scars, it can take longer. It is important to gently rub the product in to ensure the skin absorbs the gel properly and use it as often as possible throughout the day."
