The Age Renew Starter Kit is a professional-strength skincare system that targets the visible signs of premature ageing using a unique step-by-step approach. Using premium actives, it gently exfoliates to reveal radiant skin, deeply nourishes to lock in moisture, shields skin to protect against free radicals and UV damage, and tightens and tones the look of skin to correct lines and wrinkles. Skin is left soft and noticeably more youthful.
Featuring five best-selling hero products in handy, travel-friendly sizes:
Hyaluronic Acid – renowned as the best hydrator, this moisture-retaining molecule occurs naturally in the skin as well as in the connective tissues of the body. With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, it draws moisture from the air into the skin to provide intense hydration whilst cushioning skin cells to give an instant plumping effect.
Vitamin B5 – powerful active that amps up the skin’s moisture-retention abilities by reinforcing the skin’s natural lipid barrier whilst simultaneously stimulating cell regeneration and healing.
Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant that quenches UV-induced free radicals to fight against visible signs of ageing.
Vitamin E – an antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage while acting as a stabiliser for vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin C.
Pure All-Trans Retinol – helps to maintain collagen, improve skin texture and increase hydration. Fortified with time-release technology to ensure optimum absorption while minimising the irritation associated with regular retinol products.
Peptides – mimics the skin’s natural repair signals to help increase skin smoothness while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Salicylic Acid – a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that provides superior exfoliation to reduce clogged pores, smooth wrinkles and stimulate new cell growth.
L-Lactic Acid – an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that hydrates and exfoliates, helping to provide an even skin tone and texture.
HOW TO USE
Step 1: Cleanse
Exfoliate, tone and brighten your skin with poreCleanse™ Gel. This pore refining cleanser uses a combination of AHAs and BHAs to dissolve deep-seated dirt, oil and makeup without drying or irritating skin. Massage into a moistened face and neck, then rinse well and pat dry.
Step 2: Replenish
Quench skin’s thirst with Hydr8 B5™. This silky serum is enriched with multi-weight hyaluronic acid, a powerful molecule that draws water from the atmosphere into the skin, to deliver optimal hydration and keep moisture locked in tight. Apply morning and night to freshly cleansed skin.
Step 3: Protect (day)
Shield skin against damaging free radicals with C-Tetra® Vitamin C Day Cream, a hydrating antioxidant moisturiser that helps to combat sun damage and visible signs of ageing while enhancing skin texture and overall radiance. Blend a small amount over the face and neck every morning after applying Hydr8™ B5.
Step 4: Correct (night)
Revitalise skin overnight with Retinol 3 TR™. This lightweight, fast-absorbing serum visibly firms and renews while you sleep to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone come morning. Massage four drops over face and neck every evening after applying Hydr8™ B5.
Retinol should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first fortnight, every other night for a further two weeks and then every night.
Step 5: Eyes
Restore vitality to the delicate skin around the eyes with Eyelift®, a powerful anti-ageing treatment that uses five age-defying peptides to firm and lift the eye contours in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness. Apply a small amount all around the eyes, avoiding the eyelids, and gently blend.
Step 6: Prevent
Defend your skin against future ageing with Physical Sunscreen. This fast-absorbing sunscreen uses broad spectrum UV filters, anti-pollution technology and anti-ageing actives to prevent environmental damage while visibly correcting signs of ageing. Massage a small amount over the face and neck as the last step of your routine.
