Skin Care Products - Relastin and Lumene
Relastin Zinc Firming Complex is a multi-tasking product that I love when my skin is feeling tight or dry. A little bit of this product applied to my face and instantly I see the hydration occur. I feel it too. Relastin contains vitamins and peptides which aid in repairing free radical damage. It also brightens the complexion. Any product that stimulates collagen is okay in my book.
Here's the official 411 from the company:
Zinc Firming Complex™ with nourishing hydration and powerful vitamins and extracts – delivering 360 degree skin rejuvenation. On the surface, the rich, creamy formula hydrates and soothes skin. On the cellular level, Relastin Ultra Emollient smoothes and firms the epidermis by increasing skin’s functional elastin fibers. Vitamins and nutrients in the moisturizer work alongside the caffeine to penetrate skin cells and fight free radical damage, encourage collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I use this one all over my face, even the eye area. I can't stand those nasty fine lines that began to pop up over the last few years. Also noteworthy is the Relastin Eye Silk, a product that focuses its attention on increasing elasticity around the eye area. I'll do whatever I can to battle the aging process! Without surgery or needles, that is.

Lumene is another brand worthy of your attention. My favorite is the Radiant Beauty Drops, pictures above. In those little capsules is a dose of cloudberry seed oil plus lingonberry seed oil, along with Vitamin C. Once applied, your face will feel velvety to the touch. The drops help to brighten and clarify the skin tone.
Lumene Vitamin C Energy Cocktail Intensive Care serum also gets two thumbs up. Cranberry seed oil along with cloudberry oil, energizes skin, improves texture and helps combat wrinkles. There is a Vitamin C Invigorating Eye Serum that uses a roll -on applicator which I find helps to decrease swelling around my eyes in the morning. Vitamin C is a multi-tasker,protecting against free radicals, providing moisture and fading out dark circles.
Lumene Vitamin C Protecting Day Cream contains an spf 15. You know how I feel about sun protection. Its a must! This is an excellent cream for all skin types. Provides moisture, hydtation and our friend, Vitamin C. The Vitamin C Nourishing Night Care Cream is rich, ideal for thirsty skin. I will liberally apply this one to not only my face but neck and chest area too, using any leftovers for my hands.
