Another Blog Giveaway (YAY! FREE STUFF)--this time it's easy for you, folks!

Endless hot summer days inevitably bring about the battle to protect our skin. As we unpack our favorite beach blankets and swim suits, we also pull out bulky hats and goopy sun blocks in an attempt to ward off the damaging rays of the sun.

As we know, prolonged exposure to the sun- UVA and UVB rays, pollution, and even wind can damage and age our skin. According to a study published in the scientific journal Biogerontology, “environmental factors have been shown to cause major changes in both the structure and biophysical properties of the skin.” Over exposure to the sun actually changes the DNA of the skin, free radicals are produced feeding off of naturally occurring antioxidants found within the body. Antioxidants can work to ward off free-radical damage and can slow or even prevent oxidative damage (the aging process) to the body.

AminoGenesis Skin Care is leading the way by developing the first amino acid-based skincare line. According to AminoGenesis founder Ron Cummings, “collagen and elastin are both made of amino acids, which are proteins found in the skin. The skin becomes depleted of amino acids through environmental factors and the natural aging process.” Combining plant derived amino acids with anti-oxidants, AminoGenesis has created Perfect Reflection, an all natural anti-aging serum. By utilizing:

  • Vitamin A
    • Improves skin elasticity, texture, firmness and smoothness
  • Vitamin C
    • Protects collagen from oxidation, reduces dark spots, helps the
      skin remain soft and supple
  • Vitamin D
    • Helps improve skin feel and texture and is an important factor in
      epidermal cell turnover
  • CoQ10
    • This element is the spark that helps cells create energy and helps
      preserve vitamin E

Perfect Reflection has been proven to repair sun damage, relieve dryness, decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and improves skin elasticity, texture, firmness, and smoothness.

  • Perfect Reflection: AminoGenesis’ Perfect Reflection anti-aging serum combines four powerful anti-oxidants (vitamin A, C, D and CoQ10) with AminoGenesis’ base formula of 17 amino acids. This silky smooth water-based formula penetrates the skin rapidly delivering moisture and skin-rejuvenating nutrients for the most beautiful, youthful and healthy skin possible! Price: $69

Thanks for the giveaway offer, Hannah! I figured since I turn 33 tomorrow, I'd enter the running.

As a teacher, I must note that the writer didn't offer a date with the journal citation. COM 114 dictates an ethical persuader always lets the audience know how current his/her information is. :)
