Skin 2 Skin Care Photoaging Repair Cream

Skin 2 Skin Care Photoaging Repair

Size: 1.75 oz (50 ml)

Skin 2 Skin Photoaging Repair is formulated to create a visibly more even and balanced skin tone. This advanced dark spot corrector is powered by a proprietary blend of active ingredients that work synergistically on multiple levels to address all stages of skin discoloration. Suitable for all skin types and tones, it safely diminishes the appearance of age spots and inhibits the reappearance of new spots while brightening surface dullness. With consistent use over a month of testing, the founder of Truth In Aging saw a significant improvement in tone on her face and décolleté.

Photoaging Repair is formulated with known skin lighteners like licorice root, kinetin and vitamin C. A biomimetic peptide called B-White decreases tyrosinase activity and melanin synthesis to reduce overall skin pigmentation. Additionally, Chronoline (caprooyl tetrapeptide-3) stimulates the production of key components at the dermo-epidermal junction to give skin a smoother, firmer look. Potent antioxidants fight off free radical damage from sun exposure, while knotgrass extract battles heat aging to protect skin. Used daily, this cream improves the skin’s overall appearance for a healthier, more youthful complexion. Skin 2 Skin products contain no parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic color or fragrance.

Tested for 30 days and recommended by Marta:

Although I have been told that I have a balanced skin tone for my age (57), it doesn’t really look that way to me. Freckled since early childhood, you wouldn’t in a million years describe my complexion as porcelain. To my gimlet eye, there are some patches of discoloration on my cheeks and a kind of “shadowy” patch that appeared on my chin a while back — not to mention a leopard spot that has been around all my adult life. In other words, I was very interested to see if Skin 2 Skin Care Photoaging Repair Cream would rise to the challenge.

After 30 days of testing, I have seen a notable, although not significant, improvement. I believe that this is realistic as hyperpigmentation in all its forms is notoriously difficult and requires regular and continuous treatment. I have definitely seen a fading of the lighter patches and my overall skin tone looks super — healthier, more refined and brighter. I would definitely recommend Skin 2 Skin Photoaging Repair to anyone with dull skin hankering for that illusive radiance.

The impressive formula has some ingredients that are well worth drawing your attention to. First is a retinol alternative that has my inner ingredient-nerd all of a flutter. Marketed under the name ofExo-T, it is derived from a marine bacteria found near Polynesian atolls. According to the manufacturer, it does a better job of what it calls “desquamation” (shedding of skin cells, presumably) than alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs), resulting in smoother skin.

A useful brightening ingredient is B-white. It has been around for five years or more, but is still comparatively rare. It is a peptide (oligopeptide-68) that is said to inhibit tyrosinase activity, inhibit melanin synthesis and decrease the proteins involved in the pigmentation process. The maker of B-white says that it mimics the growth factor TGF-ß and so, unlike many brightening agents, it doesn’t rely alone on inhibiting tyrosinase, which is the enzyme primarily responsible for skin pigmentation. Behaving like a TGF-ß, it also “inhibits the action of the MITF cellular pathway to decrease constitutive and facultative pigmentation, allowing for a safe lightening effect.”

The formula isn’t only confined to brightening, and I should give an enthusiastic call out to Chronoline, a peptide that is supposed to be good at lifting sagging skin. Unlike most peptides, caprooyl tetrapeptide-3 is derived from a growth factor. The caprooyl part is a lipid, which is supposed to increase stability and skin penetration. It is supposed to increase collagen lll by 34 percent, as well as laminin production by 26 percent and laminin 5 by 49 percent. Skin 2 Skin Photoaging Repair’s wealth of botanical extracts includes a super-charged vitamin C extract from the Australian kakadu plum and Skin 2 Skin’s proprietary cocktail that includes red clover, borage, ginger root and much more.

    I have light to medium thick olive skin and blue eyes and developed over years working outdoors, multiple pea size thick dark brown spots on backs of hands, a persistent greyish brown cast to chin, a quarter sized brown splash on my chest, mottled neck and chest and various color and shape spots on my face. Since I did not want to use harsh chemicals on my skin after salicylic acid did not solve the problem, I was overjoyed by this reccomendation by Marta. After three months of almost nightly use, the greyish brown cast on my chin is almost gone, my overall facial and chest tone more even and and less " tea stained" looking, and remarkably that splash of brown on my chest has shrunken by about 20% , lightend by about 30% and the edges less defined. I really like this line of serums and creams working synergistcally. and the delivery system from the bottles is airtight making them great travel companions. So very excited! Thank you Marta for the great recommendations!

    How I love this product! For three months alternating this at night with skin2skin 24/7 during the day. This at night has actually resulted in more even skin tone and lightened age spots sun spots on face and hands., and a large "splatter" spot on my chest. My chin harea as obstinantly refused to lighten by use of Vitamin C, microbrasion, salycylic avid. At last my chin color blends with the rest of my facial skin. Yea! There is another product by skin2skin which is making a great difference in lip lines and sagging at eyes: Aging Intervention Cream.

    Hi Sheri
    I have sensitive skin and for years thought I couldn't use vitamin C. Modern versions are much gentler and effective. This one is no exception. I would say give it a try.

    Sounds interesting, but I usually react to vit C products. Is this different and compatible with sensitive skin? Thanks, Sherri
