Renowned dermatologist Gary Goldfaden, M.D., has developed novel solutions for the most common skin problems encountered by maturing adults. Based on extensive clinical testing, these formulas are designed with potent antioxidant tea extract (red, green, and white) to correct specific areas of concern, such as the appearance of darkness and puffiness under the eyes, fine lines, rough skin, loose skin, and more.80-87 These products can be used in conjunction with any other skin treatments or products. They are specially formulated exclusively for Life Extension.
Red spots, abrasions, swollen purple blotches, scars can all cause major cosmetic problems. When you were younger, these problems disappeared in a matter of days. Now they seem to last weeks and crop up in more places than ever (hands, arms, legs, feet, back, buttocks). The reason is simple. Your skin grows thinner and more fragile with age. So these imperfections become more frequent, more lasting.
Healing Formula All-in-One Cream brings together these powerful skin protectors and revitalizers to offset the visible impact of minor trauma to aging skin:
- Vitamin K1 to help minimize bruising, scarring, and blemishes – even after cosmetic surgery.111-114
- Arnica Montana, an extract of a European subalpine flower that’s been clinically shown to help bruised or scarred skin.115 Arnica is rich in phenols (plant-based compounds) called sesquiterpene lactones that penetrate116,117 your skin’s outer layer to deliver deep penetration.118 It also contains the essential oil thymol, to moisturize and protect.
- Oats, which contain avenanthramides, naturally occurring compounds with proven anti-itching and soothing properties.119,120
- Vitamin D, as cholecalciferol, has a quenching action that locks in moisture to help counter the unsightly effects of your skin’s declining capacity to renew itself.121-124
The result is a high-potency formulation with synergistic ingredients that preserve and protect your skin’s vibrant, healthy-looking glow.
