Did You Know? Protein glycation is one of many natural aging processes that occurs in skin. Caused by a reaction between a sugar (glucose) and proteins such as collagen, glycation leads to the formation of irreversible and highly-detrimental Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs). An increase in AGEs results in undesired cross-linking of collagen, ultimately causing wrinkles and a sallow/yellow appearance. Anti-glycation is considered an important antiaging step in the maintenance of healthy, youthful skin. In order to prevent the formation of AGEs, some cosmetic compounds function as antioxidants/chelators. The bionic acids, including lactobionic and maltobionic acids, and the polyhydroxy acid, gluconolactone, have antioxidant and metal chelation properties, and have been shown to reduce glycation, as well to improve the appearance of sallow, photoaged skin.
"When you start to notice those fine lines and wrinkles becoming more visible, it's a good time to incorporate Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex into your skin care regimen to help repair the signs of aging while you sleep. This powerful night cream combines a bevy of ingredients including two potent Polyhydroxy Acids (Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid), Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A, C and E, soothing botanicals, and lipids to help hydrate the skin and enhance texture while fighting oxidative damage throughout the night. After only 4 weeks of nightly use, more than 4 in 5 users reported an improvement in fine lines, increased elasticity and smoother skin." -Dr. Julie K. Karen, a board certified dermatologist.
