Skin Care Questions 

Is there any way to make pores look smaller?

Although your pore size is genetically determined, a buildup of oil, dirt, and dead cells can enlarge them. You can incorporate products containing glycolic and salicylic acid into your daily regimen to minimize the appearance of pores. We recommend: Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel, Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer, Un-Wrinkle® Peel Pads, Max Complexion Correction Pads, Gentle Complexion Correction Pads, and AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel.

 

Why do I need special products for the eye area?

The tissue around the eye is the thinnest on the body and therefore will show the first signs of aging. It is important to treat this delicate area differently with a specific eye treatment. We recommend: Power K Eye Rescue®, Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel, Mega Rich™ Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Crème, Eye Overhaul Duo™, and Un-Wrinkle® Eye.

 

My main concern is deep lines and wrinkles. Which products are best suited for me?

We recommend: our Un-Wrinkle® collection. These innovative wrinkle fighting products are formulated with powerful patent pending and proprietary state-of-the-art anti-aging peptides, neuropeptides and other advanced ingredients to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles and expression lines.

 

Do I need to wear a sunscreen everyday, even while at work and in the winter?

Yes, always protect your skin with sunscreen. UVA and UVB rays penetrate through windows and glass. In winter, rays reflect off the snow, and can cause increased sunburn. We recommend: Max All Day Moisture Defense® Cream With SPF 30, Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion With SPF 30, and any product in our Sun Care collection.

 

I have oily skin. Do I still need a moisturizer?

Yes, moisturizers play a vital role in a daily skin care regimen. If the skin is lacking moisture, simply speaking, little messages will get sent to the sebaceous glands (oil producing glands in the skin) alerting them to go into oil-producing overdrive. Essentially, by dehydrating the skin, more oil will be produced. For oily skin we recommend: Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion With SPF 30 and Oil-Free Moisturizer.

 

Why do I need to use a different product at night than I do during the day?

We like to think of nighttime as “treatment time.” It is when you should put lots of beneficial ingredients into the skin for maximum penetration without any harmful environmental factors getting in the way. We recommend: Un-Wrinkle® Night, Ultra-Lite Anti-Aging Cellular Repair, and Mega Rich™ Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Crème.

 

What product should I use if I have very oily, problematic skin but need sun protection?

We recommend: Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion With SPF 30 and Uber-Dry™ Sunscreen SPF 30. Both are gentle enough for all skin types, including very oily and those prone to acne.
