What growing tomatoes and skin care have in common?
Why things don’t work anymore. The secret of why a good thing doesn’t last forever.
It’s strange how good things do not last forever. Growing tomatoes is a real art. The same plants, same weather, and same soil and all of the sudden – lousy tomatoes one year. Why?
On the other hand, you can have allergies. You use a great allergy pill for years…then it stops working, as if you become immune to its effects.
The same can happen in skin care.
“My makeup looked great for years, now it doesn’t; my skin care products no longer make my skin look smooth and healthy.”
We hear this all the time. Sometimes your skin changes and needs new nutrients, (like a garden). Alternatively, sometimes your skin exhausts itself in responding to the youth producing ingredients in your skin care products.
This problem recently happened to me. Being a physician and skin care consultant there isn’t much in terms of skin care that I don’t know about or I haven’t tried. I am a great believer in daily topical antioxidants and retinols at night, and have practiced this over many, many years.
Recently, I noticed a rougher texture to my skin. Sometimes I will resort to a mini laser to help it along, but recently one of our vendors brought in a new product called “GLOSS.”
As I try everything that I would recommend to a patient, I did try it, not expecting to be impressed. It consisted of a re-hydrating hydropeptide mask that took 10 minutes in the morning and the use of an anti-aging cream and moisturizer at night.
Within 48-72 hours, my dry dull & fine wrinkled areas began to improve – and it took away all the “winter dullness” that my skin usually gets this time of year. It was so amazing that I have switched my own routine to include these products.
They also have a gloss peel, which I haven’t tried yet. I have not been this excited about a new product in a long time, and can think of many of my patients who would really notice a great difference – especially ones that want a positive change, without indulging in lasers just yet.
Please check our website and enter the contest to become one of the first 10 patients to get a free microderm, hydropeptide mask, and a mini sample of the mask and “gloss therapy” to take home.
If you have rough, dry, poor texture, and a lifeless look to your skin, or have trouble tolerating anti-aging products – this is the answer for you! GET GLOSSY!!!
