Editors Favorites: DNA Renewal Products
I was intrigued to come across a line of skin care products labeled as “DNA Renewal.” So I read the promotional material, which described how Dr. Ronald L. Moy, a dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon had developed the line after extensive research. The line is described as “a futuristic approach to skin renwal and protection that targets the visible signs of aging by diminishing wrinkles, evening skin tone and imroving texture. The result is dramatically healtheir, firmer, more radiant skin.”
The ingredients were impressive: DNA Repair Enzymes, engineered from marine and botanical sources; Hibiscus Peptide (peptides are found in so many results-driven skin products); Rapeseed Sterols (to provide a moisture barrier against loss of hydration); Salicornia Herbacaea Extract (to boost moisture level); Alb Flowr (to soothe inflammation from hyper-pigmentation); Nonapeptide-1 (to prevent and lighten hyper-pigmentation).
So I tried the samples I received: the DNAEGF Renewal, the DNA Night Renewal and the DNA Defense SPF 30+. The first thing I noticed was the smooth, silky texture of the products; they were easily absorbed — even the Night Renewal — and left no greasy or tacky film on the skin.
The DNA Defense SPF30+, which delivers protection against both UVA and UVB rays — and also contains Vitamin A and E (for anti-oxidant activity) — is quickly absorbed. Because if desperses micro-fine zinc, it has a sheer finish, not the white color that so many products with a high SPF leave on the face.
After a couple of weeks, here’s what I noticed: the texture of my skin was smoother; pores seemed diminished and my skin tone was definitely brighter and more even.
Bottom Line: Good product. Price-y at upward of $100, but effective. The DNA Defense at $45, however, is definitely worth a try, especially for skin like mine — fair and vulnerable to various skin cancers.
