There is one inevitable fact when it comes to our skin. As we age, our skin will visibly show the effects of years of exposure to the elements, stress and the aging process. In mature and pre-maturely photo-aged skin, the skin has lost its suppleness and elasticity, has a rough exterior and appears weathered, is drier and has a decreased ability to retain moisture, has lost firmness, has collapsed upon itself creating fine lines and deep wrinkles, and often times has become hyperpigmented. Also, collagenase is aggressively undermining the production of collagen, your skin's support system.
SkinWithin’s White-Firm Night addresses all of these issues. It is a multi-purpose soothing, light weight cream developed to brighten, balance and rejuvenate photo-aged and mature skin, with ingredients to firm and smooth the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, repair facial damage, including hyperpigmentation, caused by oxidative and carbon stress, replenish and retain moisture in the skin, reduce the appearance of rosacea and facial spider veins, and photo-protect the skin from damage in the future.
Historically, ingredients like hydroquinone have been used to treat hyperpigmentation, but these products have failed to address the other problems related to mature and photo-aged skin. Also, hydroquinone strips the skin of its defense mechanisms to deal with your daily exposure to the sun and pollution. Four lightening agents are included in White-Firm Night to lighten, brighten and balance the skin. Alpha-arbutin blocks tyrosinase, which triggers melanin production. Emblica, hexylresorcinol, and niacinamide are multi-functional ingredients that target other pathways that cause the skin to become hyperpigmented, while providing superior antioxidant and antibacterial benefits, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increasing the skin's defense mechanisms against UVA/UVB exposure, and improving the skin's barrier function to minimize the affects of exposure to the sun and pollution.
Aldenine contains soy and wheat proteins and a patented multi-peptide that promote the production of youthful, supple collagen III and detoxify and photo-protect the skin from carbon stress that results from pollution exposure. Colhibin is a rice derived anti-aging peptide that protects the skin's collagen network and smooths the skin, while providing excellent moisture retention. Syn-Coll is a deep penetrating, small peptide that stimulates collagen synthesis, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the skin's firmness, while moisturizing the skin. MDI Complex is a multi-functional natural ingredient that improves skin barrier function, inhibits collagenase activity, and aids in reducing the appearance of rosacea and facial spider veins. Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its weight in water and holds moisture and nourishing ingredients in the skin.
Besides all of these ingredients, Vitamins A, B and E, along with Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), provide antioxidant benefits, while hydrating the skin. Botanicals, aloe vera, bilberry, and evening primrose, offer anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits. Citric and glycolic acids gently exfoliate to prepare the skin for receiving all of the multi-functional ingredients found in White-Firm Night.
