Industrial Strength Skincare

Prescriptives Super Line Preventor Xtreme $48 for 1.0 oz or $76 for 1.7 oz. Have you heard about this incredible serum? I read about it in Elle. Now I really want to try it. Apparently it's much more than a bottle full of antioxidants. It's super intense and smart. "What does it do? This serum protects the skin from free radicals produced in response to ground-level ozone and UV light. Exposure to summer smog and start a chain reaction in the ski that lasts for up to 72 hours, causing premature lines and wrinkles.
How does it work? "This formula prolongs the antioxidant effecct of vitamins C and E in a molecule called 2 CME," says Mari Yamasaki, vice-president of Product Development at Prescriptives. "Most of the time, once an antioxidant neutralizes a free radical, it stops working. But we've included a catalytic antioxidant that never gets used up, protecting skin tissue longer." Working synergistically with 2 CME are grape seed phosphate extract and turmeric root extract, as well as rosemary extract and pomegranate. Also enriching the formula are heapeptides for increased collagen sysnthesis and hyaluronic acid for added hydration. Use morning and night, after cleansing."
