Sun exposure. Environmental pollutants. Smoking. Poor diet. All these things can lead to a break-down in collagen formation by releasing Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), or free radicals. As collagen is reduced, skin loses tone, firmness, and elasticity. To regain firm skin and undo sun damage, antioxidants are one of the best skin care treatments.
Antioxidant therapies are measured by Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity, or ORAC, values. The higher the ORAC, the more antioxidants a product contains, and the more ROS it can absorb. By removing ROS from the dermal matrix, collagen production is enhanced, giving skin improved tone and elasticity.
Hale Cosmeceuticals fortifies ORAC Lifting Complex with a heavy dose of naturally-sourced antioxidants. It contains 3,666 units of antioxidants; typical antioxidant products from other manufacturers have only around 500 units.
We use both alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids. AHAs help skin appear softer and smoother, and add moisture where it’s needed most. BHAs minimize pore size, improving skin appearance while reducing the occurrence of blackheads and other unsightly blemishes.
For best results, we recommend applying ORAC Lifting Complex once or twice daily, immediately after face and neck cleansing.
