Feeding our skin while we sleep is one of our favorite past-times here at HintMD. Not that we’re lazy, but helping the skin fight free radicals, strengthen, protect, regenerate and hydrate itself while we do absolutely nothing but catch a few zzz’s? Count. Us. In.
Don’t get us wrong, many over-the-counter night creams are about as effective as a chocolate fireguard, but choose wisely with a medical-grade, clinically-proven nighttime treatment and you will never regret it. We repeat: never.
So, let’s take a peek at PCA Skin Resveratrol Restorative Complex – one of the newest offerings to enter the world of tried and trusted, while-you-sleep skincare…
What It Is
Right up there with sunscreen and moisturizer, antioxidants are some of the most important pieces of arsenal you could include in your skincare plan. Not only do antioxidant treatments fight skin-damaging free radicals produced from environmental stresses such as pollution, sun damage and cigarette smoke, but the good ones offer so much more. And yes, this is one of the good ones, due, in most part to the super-powers of a certain ingredient called resveratrol.
Found mostly in the skin of red grapes, resveratrol is an antimicrobial compound produced specifically to protect the grapes from adverse conditions like ultraviolet light, infection and climatic changes. In skincare, it has been proven to be a very powerful and effective antioxidant because it works hard to support cell protection and regeneration. In turn this helps strengthen and brighten the skin, while reducing inflammation and age-related degradation.
What It Does
Along with the aforementioned free-radical-fighting resveratrol, this anti-aging powerhouse includes a whole plethora of skin-loving ingredients. We’re talking plantago lanceolata leaf extract and snow algae to help reduce the many visible signs of aging, plus silymarin and dimethyl sulfone which work synergistically to soothe the skin, increase hydration and reduce redness. And if you’re worried about the possible sensitivities caused by such powerful ingredients, don’t be. Thanks to PCA Skin’s patented Omnisome delivery technology, these active ingredients are carried slowly (but still deeply) into the skin for superior results with little to no irritation.
Say hello to brighter, younger-looking skin. And, hold on, all this while you were sleeping?
Anything that’s proven to help stimulate all that delicious collagen we used to take for granted in our 20s gets a gold star from us. Lightweight and super-effective – we’re sold.
We’re also massive fans of PCA Skin’s R-OH Retinol Solutions which similarly harness the same time-release Omnisome delivery system and make retinol a viable option for even the most sensitive skin types.
It’s official: Omnisome rocks. As does Resveratrol Restorative Complex.
