Medical Grade Products vs. Over The Counter

What is the difference ?
Medical Grade Products may only be purchased through a physician or skincare clinic or website associated with a licensed physician. The efficacy of these products are due to the concentrated, active and high quality ingredients that are fortified by intense research, technology and clinical studies. Only via Medical Grade Products will skin change and improve.
Over The Counter or OTC skincare may be purchased at department stores, drug stores, spas, salon and basic websites. Most OTC skincare lines are owned by just a few umbrella companies such as Estee Lauder, which owns Clinique and Crème de La Mer. One can spend $40 on a Clinique product or $400 on a Crème de La Mer product. The results are the same.....Nada ! Plus these products are chock full of fillers, perfumes, talc, mineral oils etc. All are inactive and may be irritating. Pretty packaging does not equate to results. Do not be duped by their claims.
To find Medical Grade Products such as Neostrata, Skinceuticals, Revision, PCA and our own very line by yours truly peruse shopspaViolet.

Your Hands Do Show Your Age !

When it comes to our face our anti-aging program is like clock-work...moisturizers, sunscreens, hydrating products, retin-A, wrinkle fighting serums etc. Our hands, not so much ! A youth preservation plan for our delicate and depraved hands is a must! Here are a few tell-tale signs that make hands look old.
Age spots : Which have nothing to do with age. " Age spots are the result of sun exposure, " explains Eileen Lambroza, MD, clinical instructor of dermatology at New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center. Short of chronically wearing gloves a dollop of sunscreen should be applied to hands before heading out the door. And re-applied throughout the day if in the sun.
Crepey skin : If backs of the hands begin looking crimpey start using a collagen thickening cream to improve texture.
Flaky skin : Two words...exfoliate and hydrate .
For a solution to these giveaway signs try Lumiquin by Revision Skincare. Lumiquin is a brightening treatment or younger looking hands. This night-time formula is packed with almighty anti-aging ingredients and anti-oxidants. Lumiquin brightens the skin, minimizes imperfections, enhances skin's moisture level and supports skin's natural moisture. Diacetyl Boldine helps brighten skin. Licorice Root Extract increases radiance. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that brightens. Biosaccharide Gum-1 and Hyaluronic Acid are highly moisturizing and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Lumiquin is meant to be used at night and needs to be on the skin for several hours without hand washing. All skin types benefit. A tip: use it on your arms as well.
