Disclosure: I will be receiving products and treatments in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
If you remember from my post a couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to the Erasable MedSpa in Tampa. I have partnered with them and am thrilled to share with you their G.R.A.S.S skin care regimen. This is the skin care system that Loretta (Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner) has me on right now. I can tell you that in my initial results of the regimen, I am blown away. And, my results are only going to get better the longer that I use the products. Remember, your face is the first thing that people will see, so why not take care of yourself and have gorgeous skin for years to come?
The G.R.A.S.S skin care regimen is used in conjunction with SkinMedica® products. These are not just any skin care products that you might find at your local drug store, but rather medical-grade products that are perfect for any skin care type. For more than a decade, SkinMedica® has worked to develop innovative skin care treatments that help rejuvenate skin and they have had glowing results. Their best selling products have been featured in Elle, INSTYLE, Self, People, Web MD and many other magazines and television shows including The View and The Today Show to name just a few. SkinMedica® is part of the Allergan family, the same team that brought us Botox® Cosmetic and revolutionized the medical aesthetic industry. Their scientifically proven recovery compounds include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS® — their patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins.
I would love for you to know what each letter of the G.R.A.S.S. skin care regimen stands for so that you can familiarize yourself with how the products work. I am amazed at how wonderful each product works with one another to give you the results that you are looking for!
The “G” in GRASS represents products from the GROWTH FACTORS category. These products contain a high concentration of TNS® — the SkinMedica® patented skin treatment, formulated from naturally occurring GROWTH FACTORS, antioxidants, soluble collagen, cytokines and matrix proteins. They help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and help improve skin texture and tone.
The TNS Essential Serum is my absolute favorite product in my G.R.A.S.S skin care regimen. After I cleanse my face with the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, this is what product that I apply next on my face. I am in love with everything about this product and how it feels like liquid gold on the skin – I cannot speak highly enough about this product! In a study, 92% of people who used this product, rated their skin as looking healthier and more youthful! And, it enhances your skins natrual texture and tone while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This product has been featured in the Oprah Magazine. That alone says a lot for the effectiveness that this product delivers!
The “R” in GRASS represents products from the RETINOLS category. SkinMedica® offers 3 strengths of Retinol Complex – 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0. RETINOL helps enhance skin texture, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and skin discolorations. Peptides, algae extract and vitamin E help to ensure skin is soft, hydrated and protected against free radical damage.
I had never used a retinol product until now but I am thrilled at what a difference that it is making in my skin. I am not normally a person to have issues with acne except for that occasional blemish during my monthly cycle. Last month I had a small blemish on my chin. I put this on and the next day it was gone. (individual results will vary) This product is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
The “A” in GRASS represents products from the ANTIOXIDANTS category. Our skin is exposed to damaging free radicals everyday. SkinMedica®’s ANTIOXIDANT products contain high levels of vitamins C and E. For around the clock defense, use the Vitamin C+E Complex during the day and the Dermal Repair Cream at night.
The first “S” in GRASS represents the SPECIALTY PRODUCTS category. SkinMedica® offers a number of products to address specific skin conditions or areas of concern. They have created a SPECIALTY PRODUCTS category to help our customers round out their skin care regimens with a product to help address those unique skin care needs.
I am in love with the Lytera Skin Brightening Complex that is included in my G.R.A.S.S. Skin care regimen. This product brightens my skin and gives me a nice youthful glow. This has really helped with the discoloration in my skin and has provided an overall improvement in my skin condition.
The last “S” in GRASS represents the SUN PROTECTION category. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends choosing an SPF with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. SkinMedica® offers 3 SPF products in the SUN PROTECTION category. Choose one that fits your needs best.
On a personal note here, it is SO important to wear an SPF each day that has not only Broad spectrum protection but UVA/UVB protection as well. Don’t let those moisturizers that have SPF in them fool you, there really is not enough SPF in those products to protect your skin. You really need something that will do the job the right way. I have to say that I not only love this product for the protection that it is giving me, but it also acts as a primer for when I put on my concealer and foundation. Love it!
