Therapon Skincare Products Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have a brand new skincare company I would like to introduce you to called Therapon Skin Health. They have several different brands that they carry but the one we are going to talk about is the Theraderm products and more importantly the Skin Renewal System and the NuPeel Natural Enzyme Peel.

We will start with the NuPeel since it is a product by itself. This peel uses fruit enzymes to help exfoliate dead skin cells and the most important one is papaya. Pineapple, grape seed, green tea leaf and cucumber extracts then calms and nourishes the skin so that it is smooth and radiant. It will also allow your makeup to go on more smoothly for a flawless foundation. You can also restore dry, damaged skin in areas such as the elbows, knees and heels of your feet. For best results follow with Theraderm Extreme Dry Skin Therapy.
Your skin must be clean and dry before you start. Then apply a thin layer to your face and wait for about 30-60 seconds. You will then rub in a circular motion until dead skin cells began to bead up. Rinse off and pat dry. You can use NuPeel 2-3 times a week. Stop using if it irritates your skin. I loved the way my face felt after using this peel a few times after one week! I have always leaned towards peels that do the same exact thing that this one does, let the dead skin cells bead up so that you can actually see what you accomplished. The other kind I am never sure if I got it all or not because it does not peel or bead up.

Let's start with the Skin Renewal System now and I will tell you what each product does:

Theraderm Cleansing Wash is a soap free mild foaming gel that will gently loosen dirt and debris from your face. Even the most sensitive skin will be able to use this Cleansing Wash. You can use a damp cloth but I like to just use my hands as the wash cloth is a little rough on my face. You don't need much, about a dime size amount and in circular motion for about a minute wash your face and rinse.

Use twice daily. If you want younger healthier skin it is best to follow a regime that is meant to build on top of each other such as this one. Cleansing your face is the first step. Always pat dry your face instead of rubbing when drying. It pulls and stretches your skin when you constantly are rubbing your face with a towel or washcloth.
Now you move on to the Fruit Acid Exfoliant. This is a clinical strength lactic acid that will gently and naturally exfoliate the dry outer layers of your skin. Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid. Squeeze about 10 drops onto the Gentle Action Application Pad then apply to the skn. Do not rinse.

This stays on the face and please avoid the eye area. You can use this twice daily to the neck and face including eyelids. This is non toxic and non irritating so you should not have a problem. Because of the type of exfoliation there should be no flaking.
Now you are ready for the third part of the regime called the OPC Reparative Gel. Botanical Proanthocyanadins (OPCs) decrease inflammation while protecting and repairing skin collagen and elastin. This potent antioxidant is 20x more effective than Vitamin C and 50x more effective than Vitamin E. With your fingertips apply a thin layer twice daily over the face and neck including eyelids up to the lashes.

Please do not rinse off. This OPC Gel will help repair some of the environmental/sun damage that has occured to our faces. It also enables Vitamin C to help repair collagen. If you have Rosacea this will help you in getting rid of it!
Lastly, you will put on the Enriched Facial Moisturizer (you may take one of the other 2 that they have depending on your skin type, I have dry/mature skin so this is what they recommended). If you will follow the link I provided above there is a little test you can take to determine which of the 3 moisturizers you need.

Because I have dry skin I need this particular moisturizer because it's got superfine-grade lanolin to restore the lipid barrier. This one also contains the highest levels of lanolin you can get. And I am here to tell you my face loved it! It soaked right in and made me feel less parched and dry. Apply twice daily with your fingertips all over the face using upwards strokes.

I did not get their Platinum Protection Facial Sunscreen (SPF43) but it recommends that you put it on or some form of sunscreen after the moisturizer.

I loved the whole regimen and am getting excited about how my face is becoming less tired and dry looking. I think between the NuPeel and then the daily exfoliator, those two are really helping me to get rid of what I call the flatness in my face. I don't know if I am describing it right but it is dull and now it is glowing a little more each week. I looked ashen I guess was the better word and now I am not. I look more relaxed and not like I have been wrung thru a wringer. Thanks Therapon & Theraderm!
