SWAG ALERT: REFINE AND RESURFACE THE SKIN!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

In order for our expensive skincare products to actually effect change, they first have to penetrate the deepest layers of the dermis.  That is why regularly refining and resurfacing the skin is key to achieving a flawless complexion.  Results-driven Swiss skincare company, Instytutum, has created a prosumer (professional-consumer) microdermabrasion treatment, its Triple Action Resurfacing Peel.   A 10 % acid duo of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids is combined with Papaya Enzyme and bamboo micro-polishing beads to remove dead skin cells.  Renewing Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E moisturize, soothe and regenerate the skin.  Creating the optimal 3.5 PH, treatment products are then primed for penetration and absorption into the skin.  The Triple-Action Peel visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores, while improving dark spots and discoloration for an overall brighter, smoother and renewed complexion.  Used weekly as a physical exfoliant as well as a masque, Instytutum recommends gradually building up frequency  to several times per week.

Instytutum is also offering twenty Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its Triple Action Resurfacing Peel (retail $79) simply by following on Instagram (or Facebook if you don’t have) and entering here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only (no PO Boxes, please!).  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks from notification

CAN PRODUCTS REALLY FREEZE, PLUMP, AND LIFT?

When shopping pricey skincare products, its best to be savvy about claims and have realistic expectations.  There are no firming or tightening products whose results can duplicate what one receives from in-office medical procedures such as dermal fillers, Botox, lasers, or cosmetic surgery.  Yet, some products can garner desired  results for a finite amount of time. Harriet Ploeger, Executive Director of Swiss results-driven skincare brand, Instytutum, asserts, “While some cream promise to freeze lines and wrinkles or plump and lift the skin, the effects are simply temporary.”

That is not to say that one will not receive an immediate tightening effect; however, Ploeger warns of the condition of the skin after application.  Typically, the gel-textured product contracts, dehydrating the skin and often causing pilling, like a facial mask.  Denver Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Manish Shah, concurs.  “Almost without exception, when you buy a product claiming to tighten skin, its effects, if any, are due to ingredients such as film-forming agents. Just like the name states, film-forming agents form a film on the skin, and that can make the skin ‘feel’ tighter.” (more…)

SWAG ALERT: SWISS SERUM TO BRIGHTEN THE SKIN!

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018
As we multi-task our way through the day, there is no reason for our skincare regiment to slack-off.  Results-driven Swiss skincare company, Instytutum, has recently launched its masterful, multi-tasking Anti-Wrinkle Brightening Serum in the US.  Using cosmeceutical ingredients to safely and effectively reduce hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size, the mattifying, anti-aging serum incorporates powerful peptides to boost new collagen production and protect against environmental damage.  A perfect alternative to toxic prescription skin bleaches (especially during summer when we try to minimize our  sun-exposure), the super-charged serum uses a liposomal combination of Swiss cress extract and soy isoflavone to reduce pigmentation without affecting the surrounding skin.  Potent patented plant stem cells, infused with Vitamin A, E, Squalane, Niacinamide, and time-released stable Vitamin C, hydrate skin while supporting key cellular turnover.  Applied twice-daily, Anti-Wrinkle Brightening Serum helps us maintain a beautiful glow — without any unnecessary shine.    

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Instytutum Results-Driven Skincare is offering all Beauty Undercover Subscribers a 25% sitewide discount through June 30th with the code:  UNDERCOVER.
