Sun and Skin Damage
Why You Should Remove The Iron On The Surface Of Your Skin; Yes, Remove.
We have all heard about fighting SKIN damaging free radicals… But did you know that you can now inhibit free radical production? When sun and environmental factors interact with EXCESS iron on the surface of your skin it promotes free radical production. Free radicals are known to be a cause of skin damage resulting in the appearance of dullness, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Experts say that even exposure to the lowest levels of UVA (ultraviolet) sunlight have been found to encourage free radical production.
Here's why i-On is revolutionary.
It is widely known that estrogen loss causes lots of new challenges for our bodies and skin. But it is not well known that the simultaneous iron increase on the outer layer of your skin is a cause of concern. The amount of excess iron on the skin increases by 40% throughout menopause. Other skin care products work to fight free radicals. i-On is the only cosmetic skincare that removes excess iron, inhibiting the activation of free radical production. Fewer free radicals mean less visible damage and the appearance of healthier, more beautiful, and radiant skin.
Moisturize: DII® works to remove the iron on the surface of your skin so less free radicals are produced when outdoors or in the sun. Then our lush ingredients can go to work to help strengthen, support healing, and hydrate the skin.
Eye Cream: An inevitable result of being in the summer sun is squinting. So, eye cream is essential to counter the excess stress on the fragile skin around the eyes. Clinically proven to show visible improvements in fine lines and wrinkles and dark circles in as few as 14 days.
SPF: Every day, several times a day. And not just any SPF according to Eve Lupenko, M.D. of Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology in Woodbury, NY. “I recommend a broad-spectrum “sunblock” which means that the product uses zinc or titanium to block the sun’s rays at the surface of the skin so that they don’t penetrate, and these are physical blocks, so they are natural and chemical-free”, says Lupenko. Broad-spectrum sunblock protects you against both the UVB “burning” rays and the UVA “tanning” rays. There is no rating system for UVA rays yet, so the only way you know if you’re getting protection against these is if the package says “broad spectrum.” Remember to reapply every 2 to 4 hours if you are in the sun. Wear sunglasses, a hat and lip balm with SPF.
The best healing happens at night so return to your full regimen for much needed hydration and moisturization. Your skin works hard throughout the day to protect itself from constant attack. At night, your skin mode switches from “protect” to “repair”, as it’s the time for it to recover from the day’s stresses. Melatonin and human growth hormone (HGH) production are boosted, which in turn accelerates skin regeneration and the production of antioxidant enzymes. There’s truth in some fairy tales… cortisol, the hormone produced in response to stress, can also be lowered during a solid evening’s sleep.
Skin is also more receptive to topical skincare products at night, as it’s more permeable. While this means it’s also more prone to water loss, it means you can really make the most out of the natural renewal process and maximize hydration through your skincare, boosting the regeneration process and helping to fight the signs of skin aging.

What People Are Saying
"GREAT Product! Age Disrupting Skin Emulsion is perfect for daytime use - moisturizes without any greasiness and wears well under makeup."
"WOW!I am very skeptical of any eye cream that claims to remove dark circles (which I've had since basically childhood), but I saw subtle improvements in 4 days and genuine results in 2 weeks! The area under my eyes looked younger, brighter and more flesh-toned (less purple). With aging, I have developed a bit of a sunken area between my eye and cheek, and this even helped to smooth that area a bit. Ordinarily, I would not dream of leaving the house without under-eye concealer, but the other day I finally felt confident enough to do it! (A huuuge step for me!) Now I want to buy the face cream too! I highly recommend this product!"
