Growth factor challenge for skin

Regenica® Overnight Repair or SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum®?

The skin is the largest organ in the body, so having beautiful, healthy and younger looking skin is very important to all. Your skin is just as important (or more so) as your hair and attire, because the better looking your skin is, the more confident you will be in everything you do. One of the new breakthroughs in skin care technology is the use of growth factors in skin care products. Growth factors are naturally occurring cell signifying agents that tell the skin to make collagen, elastin and a youthful cell matrix. When users replenish their growth factors, they boost their ability to repair and regenerate the skin. Growth factor skin care is growing in popularity, and a recent consumer study showed that Regenica® Overnight Repair was preferred when compared to SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum®. These are two excellent products that use growth factor formulas, but the important question is, "Which one wins the Growth Factor Challenge?"

I decided to take the challenge which required a one week trial each of Regenica® Overnight Repair and SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum®. For the first week, I used Regenica®, applying it exactly as directed and the second week, I tested out TNS Essential Serum®, also applying it exactly as directed. After each week, I evaluated my skin on smoothness, appearance and how hydrated it seemed. My experience with each product is noted below.

Regenica® Overnight Repair is formulated to restore moisture to the skin overnight, and help repair the appearance of past damage caused by exposure to sun and pollutants. It helps repair aging skin with advanced multipotent growth factors that signal skin cells to hydrate and repair the core causes of wrinkles, while renewing the complexion. This is an effective anti-aging cream for those with aging, dry, dull skin (the cream works wonders for those with sensitive skin that's been through the cold winter weather). After one week of use, ashy, dry and flakey winter skin feels hydrated, smoother and softer, while fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable and skin tone is more even. It's a very light cream that absorbs quickly into the skin to effectively hydrate it. Additionally, it’s not greasy at all and smells lovely.

SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum® helps to brighten and lighten the skin, as well as enhance skin texture and tone for younger looking skin. This works best for those with mature and hyperpigmented skin. It smells less fragrant, due to the TNS, which consists of a physiologically balanced, naturally secreted and stabilized growth factor blend that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin tone and texture. It absorbs fast into the skin, so you don't smell it afterwards. My skin feels and looks brighter and clearer each morning, so appearance of the skin is more radiant and rejuvenated.

Which one wins the Growth Factor Challenge? It depends on what's an individual's specific skin needs are. For those who have dry, flakey, and sensitive skin as a result of the cold winter weather, Regenica® Overnight Repair may work better, because it wins in the hydration category. Take the Growth Factor Challenge and see if Regenica® Overnight Repair or SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum® is for you.
