As we age the accumulation of time spent in the sun starts to show first on our face and the backs of the hands-the two areas of our skin that are most consistently exposed to the sun. For women who like to spend a lot of time in the sun, their chest area and shoulders will also develop age spots. Wearing long shirts and pants will protect the majority of our skin, but unless we go around with gloves and face masks on, there’s not much we can do (with clothing) to limit the exposure to these areas.
For this reason, the skin care industry is consistently advising women to faithfully apply sun protection to the backs of our hands and face. Even if we’re not planning on spending a lot of time in the sun, just going about such daily business as running errands or driving in our car exposes these areas that are susceptible on a daily basis to the damaging rays of the sun.
As we age, the accrued time in the sun begins to show on our face and the backs of our hands as age spots. Age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. They are slightly raised, flat, dry, brown spots. The more time you’ve spent in the sun, the more age spots you’ll have. Besides wrinkles, age spots are one of the biggest indicators of aging and women will try almost anything to be rid of these pesky spots. While I don’t have any on the back of my hands (yet), I do have one above my left eyebrow…. and it drives me crazy.
The powerful ingredients in Exfolium were specifically tested on age spots. The almost unbelievable results after only one use is truly amazing, no matter how many times I see it. I love to watch women who’ve never used Exfolium before, examine the back of the hand that was treated with Exfolium while comparing it to the untreated hand. The difference can be quite shocking, especially after just one use!
The powerhouse actives in Exfolium (most notably, Perfecting Peptide 3, Caviar Lime, Multi-Fruit BSC– which is a powerful combo of 5 effective alpha-hydroxy acids, as well as Salicylic Acid) all do wonders for exfoliation and specifically age spots. If you take the time to read the studies and research on these ingredients, you’ll see their effectiveness of “loosening the keratinized skin”, among other cool things, resulting not only in smoother skin but lighter age spots.
It’s easy to test its effectiveness by only treating the back of one hand and then comparing to the non-treated hand. The change from only one use is ALWAYS dramatic. After several weeks use, the changes are even more significant with age spots showing the biggest changes. Women are posting pictures of their hands, side by side showing the significant improvement and changes from using Exfolium, many of them after only one time. I love that this product works, even better, I love how it works right now! Don’t believe me? Take the test! Use it on one hand and compare to the untreated hand……I dare you. Become a believer!
