tions also include glucosamine, blackout yeast extract, salicylic acid
and a vitamin C derivative, ascorbyl glucoside, to help reduce the
appearance of dark spots.
Avon’s latest rollout for the season also targets uneven skin
tone and discoloration. Avon Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum is a topical formulation that harnesses the power of
injectable-grade L-aspartic acid to help deliver effective brightening results at home, according to the company.
“While many women are concerned about combating wrinkles, dark spots and discolorations are also responsible for the appearance of aged skin,” said Cheryl Karcher. “Anew offers an
incredible at-home option to skin-brightening laser treatments,
giving women everywhere access to more youthful, brighter skin.”
Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum is made up of
two unique formulas. The brightening gel is designed to help remove dull skin cells to help visibly re-texturize skin; while the
anti-dark spot helix is formulated with L-aspartic acid to help inhibit pigment production.
Besides erasing pesky age spots, today’s anti-aging formula-
tions strive to conquer fine lines and wrinkles. As seen at Bath &
Body Works, Patricia Wexler’s Intensive Deep Wrinkle Treatment
with Retinol is the latest innovation to turn back the clock. A
renowned wrinkle remedy, Retinol complements MMPi- 20 to tar-
get deep wrinkles and transform dull skin into a more radiant com-
plexion. In a clinical study, the treatment left deep wrinkles looking
visibly smoothed, pores instantly minimized, and skin feeling
firmer and more elastic, as it illuminates dull skin for a rejuvenated
complexion, according to the company.
