Question: As a menopausal woman, I’m noticing many changes in the condition of my skin. Not only am I developing lines and wrinkles, which I realise are natural signs of aging, but I am experiencing breakouts, something I thought I would have grown out of by now! I was looking for a good skincare product that will properly treat my particular skin problems and I saw an infomercial for a brand called Resurgence. It appears to be celebrity endorsed so am I right in thinking it’s a reputable brand?
Answer: Simply because a brand features celebrity testimonials, don’t automatically assume it is a good product. However, in the case of Resurgence, not only does it have some celebrity endorsement, but it also appears to be quite a good quality brand and unlike many, it has even undergone clinical testing. In fact, studies showed that it resulted in a 90% reduction in lines and wrinkles within 4 weeks of use.
The full ingredient list is not shown for this brand, which actually consists of a three step cleanse, tone and moisturize system.
However, it does address many conditions associated with aging skin, including wrinkles, age-spots and loss of elasticity plus specific problems that can arise when going through menopause. The Retinol that is included in the Resurgence formula is a popular anti-aging ingredient that is actually a form of Vitamin A and is particularly beneficial in the rejuvenation of skin cells, which decrease in production as the skin ages.
Because there are so many disreputable products on the market, it is important to do a certain amount of research first, and if possible always choose a product that either offers a free trial sample or that has a good money-back guarantee. Bear in mind though that no product line is going to completely reverse the signs of aging although a good formula should be able to slow the process and help the skin look more even-textured and radiant.
If you do shop for an anti-wrinkle product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively promote long-term improvements on the appearance of wrinkles and an overall healthy complexion. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
