03 .21 .14 Skincare Spotlight: Growth Factors

As we get older, our skin’s ability to defend and repair itself decreases. Fine lines and discoloration, loss of elasticity and brightness all happen as we age because our cells get weaker and turn over at a slower pace. It’s pretty basic if you think about it like this: our skin gets beaten up every day from internal and external stressors and it can’t fight back or recover the way it used to.

Growth factors are like fuel for your cells. They boost the “repair” signal, which has everything to do with cell turnover and collagen production. Over time, research is showing, the use of growth factors can not only slow the aging process but also reverse damage that’s already been done. Growth factors have actually been used for years for wound recovery so all this makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it?

I’ve been using Neocutis Journee Biorestorative Day Cream for a few years now and definitely notice its benefits. In addition to containing super high quality growth factors, it also contains vitamins C and E, which protect against free radical damage. I use the slightly tinted formula with SPF every morning to streamline my routine. Previously NeoCutis has only been available through doctors, but now you can get it on Amazon Prime!
