I just turned 70 years old last week and my skin is surprisingly young-looking.  You would have to see it to appreciate that comment.  Suffice to say, I am always mistaken for someone in my late forties or early fifties.  I have never had botox or any other invasive procedures. My skin care regimen has always been a serious endeavor and I eat healthfully, take lots of supplements and exercise routinely.  I have incorporated the Sirius Aurora into my skincare routine and after several months am pleased to say that I have observed positive changes in the over-all color and tone of my skin.

The skin issues that concern me most are the fine lines around my eyes and the laxity of the upper cheeks that are now resulting in some nasal labial folds and slacking of the jowls.  These were the issues I had hoped to see an improvement in...and to some degree...I have.

Before beginning the use of the Chella Master Protocol 7 Cellular Defense Serum ($135) I looked up every active ingredient so that I could more intelligently assess the product and look for the specific intended results.

The actives in the Chella Master Protocol are formidable and impressive.  Most of the actives address moisturization, prevention and protection.  My skin does look more plump and firm and the over-all look is healthier and more luminous.

One of the other ingredients in the Master Protocol is mitostime - which is a form of stem cell therapy from brown algae that assists in new cell growth; that, of course, is always a plus when you are looking to increase skin density.  But it was the ingredient  Seractin that most intrigued me since clinical studies reported that it targeted deeper wrinkles and improved their depth by 56% in thirty days --  and that was my major concern.  I have been using the Chella Master Protocol for nearly 6 weeks and there has been a slight improvement in the depth of the nasal labial folds. It would be impossible to say what percentage they have improved...but the improvement is noticeable.

And last but not least is the inclusion of Renovage (teprenone).  This ingredient is the one that works on protecting your telomeres at the ends of your DNA.  The longer the telomeres, the healthier and younger we are.  So anything that can keep the telomeres from shortening is a must in any formula.

Chella Master Protocol is used twice a day and under whatever your choice of day or night treatment you prefer.  Chella Master Protocol is very easy to use; it is a light silky cream that goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly and efficiently, and has a clean and pleasant smell.  Your day and night treatments can be applied almost immediately.

I like everything about this product and the over-all results that I have gotten, which are not only noticeable to me but to some of my friends and associates as well. It is a bit pricey, but I will continue to incorporate it into my regime.
