Derm Exclusive: Wrinkle-fighting skin care? Yes, please!
This time of year can be harsh where your skin is concerned. Dry. Flaky. Ruddy. Itchy. Not exactly words you want describing your complexion.
Throw in fine lines and wrinkles (and, sadly, those guys stick around all year round), and it’s no surprise we’re happy to shell out for a skincare regime that will help keep all that unpleasantness under control.
They had me at “younger.”
Created by plastic surgery expert Dr. Andrew Ordon (you may know him from TV’s The Doctors), the four core products include Micro Peel Resurfacing Pads, offering a professional-strength peel to exfoliate and shrink pores; Intensive Repair Serum, made to treat dark spots and uneven texture; Collagen Lift, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles; and, my fave, Fill & Freeze Wrinkle Treatment, a potion that plumps those lines upon application. Really — you will notice a difference in those crow’s feet right away. You’ll be tempted to bathe in this stuff.
Also available, FYI, are Facial Cleanser, Age Defense Moisturizer SPF 30 and Volume Lip Therapy SPF 15. The Derm Exclusive introductory collection (four pieces and a 30-day supply) is $39.95 (plus, $6.95 shipping and handling).
What I love most about this beauty routine is just that — the routine. After a long day of work, feeding the family, making sure homework is complete, getting the kids to bed and all the rest, I found myself looking forward to a few minutes to myself — for myself. The products feel good, and using them, in turn, makes me feel good. And that dry winter skin I’ve become accustomed to? Not even an issue any more.
But here’s the best part: The other day my first grader gave the greatest critique I could hope to hear: “Mommy, you look young.”
Yep, I’m gonna need some refills.
