If you are in need of a great moisturizer and anti-aging treatment, Skinceuticals A.G.E. Interrupter is both. It instantly nourished dry skin, making my skin look softer and dewey. However I have dryer skin, so I don’t know how it would effect oily skin. After a few days of applying A.G.E. day and night I started to see the fine lines around my eyes and mouth diminish.
I was hesitant to try this product simply due to its’ price point, $150, but I am an avid Skinceuticals user and I know their products work so I went ahead and spent the money. Totally worth it.
Here’s what the company says about A.G.E.:
A.G.E. Interrupter is specifically formulated to improve the creping, thinning appearance of mature skin caused by intrinsic or internal aging processes such as glycation.
Glycation occurs when excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin fibers, eventually binding them together and leading to the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (A.G.E.). Glycated collagen and elastin fibers lose the ability to function normally, and the body cannot break them down and replace them, which leads to severe wrinkling of the skin.
A.G.E. Interrupter is a unique treatment formulated with 4% Blueberry Extract, 30% Proxylane and 0.2% Phytosphingosine to help prevent the glycation process and correct severe signs of intrinsic aging in mature skin.
- Blueberry extract slows down the process of advanced glycation end-product (A.G.E.) formation, preventing the rigidification of collagen and elastin fibers.
- Proxylane stimulates GAG synthesis, restoring water and nutrients to the dermal epidermal junction.
- Phytosphingosine helps protect the skin's barrier to alleviate discomfort associated with dry, aging skin.
