Spotlight Thursday: Intensive Youth Serum

I am a complete and total product junkie.  It was definitely a strategic move on my part to find a position in a cosmetic company in hopes of reducing the amount of money that I spend on skincare.   When you work for a cosmetic company, sometimes you use product because it’s readily available and oftentimes free. However, there are other times you know that if you and your job part ways, you will still have love for said product and gladly pay full price for it. That’s how I feel about Hydroxatone Intensive Youth Serum.  My life was pretty pointless before it and I don’t know what I’d do without it.  If you were to look in my closet, or my night stand or my medicine cabinet you’d probably think that I was a youth serum hoarder.  Yes, it is that serious.

What it does:  Because the face is usually  exposed to the elements, it takes a beating that causes damaged and dull-looking  skin.  Hydroxatone Intensive Youth Serum uses marine derived enzymes and to repair skin cells and increase the recovery rate of sun damaged and aging.

Who’s it for: It’s for anyone that’s looking to keep their skin in tip top condition.  Don’t make the mistake of believing that you have to wait until you see wrinkles before you start treating them.  Take preventive measures.  And just because  you already have some deep set lines and skin damage doesn’t mean that you are a lost cause.  The job of a serum is to rejuvenate, repair and prevent.  They have these highest potencies of the active ingredients.  Let them work for you.  Thank me later.

What’s in it:   Speaking of active ingredients . . . When I see that a product has Matrixyl 3000 I’m in there like swimwear. This ingredient is known to not only firm skin but it also has amazing anti-aging properties.  If you  want to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet,  look for Matrixyl 3000 (which many Hydroxatone products have!).

Why we love it:  With all the damage I do to my skin on the daily basis, I desperately need  a product that repairs, firms and makes my skin radiant.  If I want, I can even go without makeup because my skin is so luminescent after using the Intensive Youth Serum.

Fun facts:   Serum is meant to be the treatment part of your skincare regime.  Make sure you apply it first after proper cleansing and toning.   This way, the serum can absorb more readily into the newly cleansed pores thus producing the best results.
