When you are sleep deprived, your eyes will appear puffy while fine lines, dark circles, and loss of radiance will appear.
Humans are creatures of habit and need to follow a scheduled daily regimen, getting as close to 8 hours of sleep as possible each night. Following a sleep schedule helps to keep inflammation in check and thus, helps you achieve beautiful, younger looking skin.
You can boost the power of beauty sleep with an alpha lipoic acid skin cream: High Potency Evening Repair.
Read on to learn more about how this alpha lipoic acid skin cream can help.
About Alpha Lipoic Acid Skin Cream
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) creams can help to:
- Promote healthy cell function
- Protect skin cells
- Boost skin’s radiance
- Minimize enlarged pores, puffiness, imperfections, and uneven skin tone
- Refine skin texture
- Diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration
The above benefits are possible because alpha lipoic acid is a universal (i.e. fat- and water-soluble) antioxidant that helps combat free radical damage.
Alpha lipoic acid is also anti-inflammatory as it prevents the activation of harmful transcription factors while it triggers a helpful transcription factor, AP-1; this allows AP-1 to turn on the production of other collagen-digesting enyzmes. These enzymes digest only damaged collagen, which results in the decreased appearance of wrinkles and scarring.
Lastly, alpha lipoic acid skin cream prevents glycation, a process involving the attachment of sugar to proteins. This process is a problem because the proteins, like collagen, become crosslinked, which means they cannot move freely, resulting in loss of skin’s elasticity. Alpha lipoic acid cream helps by allowing the sugar to be better metabolized in the cell, preventing this buildup and sagging skin.
How High Potency Evening Repair Works
You can undo the day’s harmful effects due to environmental stress while you sleep.
When you sleep, cells rejuvenate, repairing damage, so getting enough sleep, at least 7 hours, will restore skin’s luminosity, while improving tone and texture.
Dr. Perricone’s High Potency Evening Repair is a powerful, nighttime alpha lipoic acid skin cream that boosts the aforesaid rejuvenating powers of sleep.
With 400% more Alpha Lipoic Acid and 150% more DMAE than the original formulation and the highest levels of retinol available in over-the-counter cosmetics, but remaining non-irritating, High Potency Evening Repair imparts instant and long-lasting anti-aging benefits, such as addressing:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Loss of elasticity
- Enlarged pores
- Surface imperfections
- Dull skin
- Loss of hydration
With continued use (and enough sleep!), your skin will appear smooth, luminous, healthy, and more youthful.
