Getting Rid of Wrinkles and Crow’s Feet, All The Way Down

Eye CremeDr. Ourian has done it again! Using the latest scientific advances, he has created an amazing anti-wrinkle moisturizer for the eyes. And no need for a fancy name here. It is simply called “Epione Eye Cream“. The ingredients include the standard vitamins A, E and K to help prevent dryness and sensitivity, and it also encourages collagen production, but the science behind the solution is what makes it work as well as it does.

A peptide complex, extremely powerful in nature, is included in this cream to get rid of puffiness and bags. It “protects delicate skin from damage”, as Dr. Ourian points out. But why is this peptide complex so effective in this product? Because the peptide complex protects nerve endings your skin becomes less sensitive and generates new cells more efficiently.

Many of Dr. Ourian’s patients have reported fewer wrinkles around the eye area after using the cream. In fact, their results have been almost instant. The best part is their skin will only continue to improve the longer they use it. In addition, this moisturizer is free from irritants. The saying goes that “you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”, but in this case, you can’t miss what you never had.

The Finest Skin Care Product Available?

We’ve heard a lot about ways to take care of our skin, from simple moisturizing to complicated beauty regimens. But what, exactly, are we trying to take care of? We live in a society of treating the symptoms instead of the disease. Because of this, the truly basic components of our skin—amino acid peptides—should be discussed. Here’s what they are and how they play a role in our skin, as well as how to rejuvenate and rebuild them.

So here’s some information worthy of your high school biology class: our skin is made up of a number of different proteins, such as hemoglobin in the blood, keratin in the skin, melanin (which gives us our skin color), and so on. Each one of those proteins is made up of amino acids. Chains, or peptides, of these amino acids are what give the proteins their structure. When the skin is damaged, these amino acid peptides are damaged as well.

Fortunately, you can reverse the damage done to amino acid peptides. The right type of skin cream works below the surface of the skin, encouraging the amino acids to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen helps our skin stay firm, avoiding wrinkles and sagging, and elastin keeps our skin from losing its flexibility. Since our skin loses more and more collagen over time, boosting its production by stimulating the amino acid peptides will keep you looking younger longer.

When Doctor Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, designed his EPIONE Signature Series Restoration Firm & Fade he instructed his laboratory to include ingredients to boost collagen. Says Doctor Ourian, “I wanted the Restoration Firm and Fade to not only lighten and even out skin tone but to help the skin build collagen. That’s why we included tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline in the formulation.”

Doctor Ourian continues, “Studies have indicated that tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate not only stimulates collagen but also inhibits the production of pigment, promoting a more even skin tone. It does this without exfoliating or irritating the skin. Dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline is a plant-derived, natural amino acid that is essential for skin collagen synthesis.”

Doctor Ourian reminds us, “Keeping your skin young looking, however, involves more than just a great skin cream and a daily cleansing regimen. Exercise helps you keep your body healthy, and forces you to drink fluids (especially during warm weather). The better your body functions, the better your skin will look, and the longer it will take to show damage. Drinking a lot of water will also keep everything hydrated and functioning the way it should.”

“Last but not least, “ concludes Doctor Ourian, “stay out of the sun. Beach trips are wonderful, but make sure you’re wearing an SPF with a minimum of 30, a wide brimmed hat, and sunglasses. Don’t forget to reapply that sun block every two hours for best results! I recommend EPIONE Sunblock – Protect & Correct (SPF 40+).”

Amino acid peptides may sound like something that belongs in a lab, but they’re a very real part of your skin’s health. Remember, your skin is the largest organ on your body. Treat it well, and you’ll reap the rewards. For more information on EPIONE Signature Series Restoration Firm & Fade and EPIONE Sunblock – Protect & Correct (SPF 40+) go to www.epioneskincare.com.

Winter Warning: Moisturize Now for Cold Weather to Come!

Epione Skin Care - Eye Crème and Hydration CrèmeJust as fall marks the change from hot weather to cold, it also marks a change in your skincare routine. Now is the time to address the damage caused by summer sun and prepare your skin for the cold, dry days ahead. Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized during the fall will help that dryness and dullness the winter weather brings to your skin.

At Epione, we recommend our exceptional Signature Skincare line for luminous skin all fall and winter long. Prepare your skin for the coming winter months with our Hydration Moisturizing Crème. It is a rich, decadent hydrating moisturizer that diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, combats dehydration and defends against the daily onslaught of environmental aggressors like dryness and air pollution. It also restores the appearance of radiance, tone, clarity and luminosity associated with healthy skin.

Our Restoration Firm & Lift Crème will help undo the damages from the sun that likely took a toll on your skin this past summer. It is a potent skin brightener and lightener affectionately referred to as “fix it” cream by Epione patients. It helps improve uneven skin tone and skin clarity. It also re-textures the skin and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while it lightens or eliminates age spots, freckles and scars. It is designed to tighten and firm while providing the skin’s surface with a protective barrier which retains the water in the corneous layer of the skin. It is a must-have for erasing past sun damage.

The delicate eye area, often forgotten, is also important to keep hydrated this fall. The delicate skin around the eye area has very few oil glands, therefore it is beneficial to apply an eye cream daily to keep it hydrated. We recommend our Signature Eye Crème. This will help to reduce dryness and puffiness while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

Using all 3 products together as part of your everyday skin care routine, will leave you with fabulous skin all year long!
