Lately I have been very interested in skin care products that harnesses the power and possibilities of plant stem cells. Specialized peptides and enzymes or plant stem cells, when applied topically, help protect skin stem cells from damage and deterioration or stimulate the skin’s own stem cell production. I have been loyal to LA PEAU for over a year now, which also incorporates stem-cell technology into their products and I absolutely LOVE what it has done for my skin, however, one thing is missing – SPF. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a big deal to have to apply my sunscreen on after my LA PEAU, but, Alyria has taken that next step and offers the “complerte package” – PREVENTION + CORRECTION + PROTECTION. Alyria Age Renewal SPF 25 is perfect for those who are just starting to show signs of aging. It helps to restructure skin, plumping it from within for a smoother, firmer appearance. The texture is a cream-gel that goes on very smoothly and melts into the skin. It makes for a great makeup base!
