As I come to terms with the fact that I am not getting any younger and the skin care ‘concerns’ of my 30’s and 40’s are now skin care ‘issues’, my focus is on RESULTS. I want skin care that doesn’t just keep the status quo…I want products that turn back time – and quickly.
A skin care line that I turn to over and over is Kleraderm. Kleraderm’s motto is “We are into your skin, not your pocketbooks.” This Italian skin care line is sold at Nordstrom’s in the Somerset Mall and the Partridge Creek Mall, and is now also available for online purchase. I’ve been using Kleraderm products for years and I really think it’s one of the best kept secrets in skin care.
Two of my favorite products are ones that Joanne Recchia herself recommended for my current skin care needs: Antiage Eye Contour Gel and Botofit Cream.
The Antiage Eye Contour Gel ($75) improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. It’s also terrific for eyelids to help keep them smooth and free from the crepe paper look. I couldn’t figure out why my eyelids looked so dry when they are actually oily, and Joanne helped solve that mystery when she told me my eye shadow primer was increasing my eyelid wrinkles because it dries out the lids so much.
The active ingredients in the Eye Contour Gel include Aloe Vera gel, Elastin, Hyaluronic acid, Carrageen algae extract, Lactic acid, and Wheat protein. This gel calms puffiness, treats existing lines and wrinkles, and helps to prevent new ones from appearing. I use this along with Botofit Cream to get as close as possible to botox…but without the needles!
Botofit Cream ($138) is made from pure plant and hexapeptide 3 amino acids that reproduce the botulin effect without injections or harmful side effects. This helps to regain muscle control while at the same time decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Basically, Botofit wraps around the broken ends of collagen, building bridges that take the depth out of wrinkles.
With daily application Botofit travels down the derma not only repairing broken collagen fibers, but also jumping on to neurotransmitters, slowing down the nerve flash and keeping the muscle from constricting.
Active ingredients include Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, Carrageenan algae extract, Jojoba oil, Macadamia oil, Shea butter, Aloe extract, Olive oil, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E.
Keep in mind that the Eye Contour Gel and Botofit Cream aren’t moisturizers – they are treatments. You will still want to use an eye cream and a moisturizer over top. These treatments are extremely effective and truly deliver results.
Kleraderm just launched a terrific website, kleradermusa.com, where you can find detailed information on the products available for purchase. I highly recommend the Eye Contour Gel and Botofit Cream for anyone looking for real relief from wrinkles. – Lisa
