Illuminator, $150, Derma-Rx

Have you wondered why common skin woes like uneven skin tone, pigmentation and age spots start to become more noticeable as we age? This is because cellular turnover tends to be irregular, and skin cells tend to behave more haphazardly as melanin production goes into overdrive and cell metabolism slows down with age. As a result, melanin excretion is delayed.

Rev up cellular activity with the new and improved Derma-Rx Illuminator. Formulated to combat pesky spots and patchy skin, it also has a lighter texture, which is more readily absorbed into skin—a definite plus for our hot and humid weather. It is also packed with antioxidants to mop up free radicals as they can set off a chemical pathway that leads to the proliferation of melanin pigments.

In addition, it is fortified with a cocktail of ingredients that help give skin a healthy radiance.White Bird of Paradise Flower Extract helps boost collagen levels for plumper skin, while aiding in the breaking down of bilirubin, a component that gives skin a yellowish cast. Alpha Glucosyl Hesperidin is also used to enhance the transportation of oxygen beneath skin for a natural rosy glow.
