The Benefits and the Ingredients
Live Young is proud to offer active ingredients through our skin care lines
Petroleum-free moisturizers which are designed to meld with our skin’s natural lipids and oils.
• PH-balanced skin cleansers – we offer a gentle formulas suited to all skin types; no toner is necessary. As well as cleaning pads and an exfoliating polish.
• Glycolic acid – for exfoliation and collagen boosting, to minimize pore size and fine lines.
• AHA + BHA + other natural acids –safe combinations for treatment of active acne and hyperkeratosis (dry, dull, bumpy skin).
• Topical anti oxidants such as CE Ferulic and Vitamin C in a stable, non-oxidizing formulation with superior skin penetration – a powerful antioxidant which brightens skin, boosts collagen production, and enhances the protective effect of your sunscreen.
• Retinol/Vitamin A – Considered to be “The Gold Standard” in anti-aging skin care, retinol penetrates into the dermis allowing optimal cellular turnover, facilitating collagen production, and reducing fine lines and pore size. Retinol to date remains the most effective ingredient not only in terms of reversing solar and intrinsic aging (for example, that crepy skin on the inside of your arm), but also from a preventative standpoint in terms of its ability to protect against collagen and elastin loss, excess keratin protection, and skin cancer. It also plays a pivotal role in treating hyperpigmentation and acne.
• Peptides such as Argireline and Matrixyl and Triple peptide Neck repair – non-irritating alternatives or additions to retinol which stimulate collagen production and are safe for everyone, including women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
• Plant-derived stem cells – protect our stem cells to the dermal level from free radical damage, UV and oxidative stress, and inflammation and are particularly beneficial to people who are outdoorsy, exposed to UV a lot, or prone to inflammation
• Plant-derived growth factors – proteins that regulate and proliferate cellular growth, penetrate the epidermis to promote skin tissue repair and regeneration, reverse the signs and symptoms of both intrinsic and extrinsic aging.
• Serums – the most effective way to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin. Many serums are available to be included into a customized skin care regime based on individual need.
• Hydroquinone and other lightening ingredients for hyperpigmentation due to melasma, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, aging and sun spots.
