Therapon Skincare Products Sponsor Spotlight Review

I know you guys remember will remember this skincare company from the Valentine's Day Giveaway's 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 Platinum Protection Facial Sunscreen!

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.

Then 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 loved the whole regimen and am getting excited about how my face is becoming less tired and dry looking. I don't know if I am describing it right but it was 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! Also, another step in the skincare regime for the daytime, is putting on a sunscreen which I have described below.

They recommend putting on the Platinum Protection Facial Sunscreen (SPF43)on after applying the moisturizer. This is a broad-spectrum, oil-free sunscreen.
