Your skin has an elaborate antioxidant system to help it survive stressors, one of the biggest of which is UV sun exposure. Unfortunately, we know that chronic and excessive UV exposure often overwhelms your skin's antioxidant capacity resulting in premature aging, inflammation, and non-melanoma skin cancers. Topically applied high-quality, high-concentration green tea polyphenol antioxidants help boost DNA repair, which is a key step in preventing skin damage.
Dr. Cynthia Bailey Wants You to Know
The trick is getting enough of the hefty amounts of the right green tea compounds. Just adding "green tea" to a skin care product isn't good enough. You need high concentrations of the right polyphenol antioxidants to reap the benefits. Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy has the polyphenol antioxidant content of 500 cups of green tea in the 1oz container - and it's the "right stuff" including the compound EGCG (epigallocatechin 3-gallate) which is the major preventative antioxidant polyphenol component in green tea. I've used it in my dermatology practice for years and I've watched my patient's skin benefit. It's also one of the few skin care products that I use every day and I never travel without it.
In addition to green tea polyphenols, Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy contains caffeine (shown to augment the anti-cancer effectiveness), hyaluronic acid (to moisturize your skin), and resveratrol (the antioxidant that gives red wine its health benefits).
This professional-strength green tea cream is a key component in most of the facial skin care routines that I use to treat rosacea, facial dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), and sun damage. I also use it to help my patients successfully tolerate irritating anti-aging skin care products like treatinoin (Retin A) and glycolic acid.
Who should use Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy? In my dermatology practice, I've found that everyone benefits from it. You have the most to gain from adding this product to your skin routine if:
- You're really serious about using the best and most impactful anti-aging facial skin care.
Studies have shown that these antioxidant ingredients can help protect the skin from free radical damage due to sun and environmental stresses. Free radicals damage skin, causing skin cancer and wrinkles. I recommend using this product along with your other wrinkle treatments - it belongs in any serious skin rejuvenation regimen.
- You're at an increased risk for non-melanoma skin cancers.
I believe that this professional-strength green tea cream can actually help prevent skin cancer. I've personally used it on my sun damaged facial skin every day for years and have thousands of my patients doing the same. In my practice, I find that skin cancer patients who use Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy actually form fewer precancerous lesions and skin cancers than before they began using the product. This sounds astounding, but scientific studies have shown that green tea polyphenol antioxidants applied to the skin together with caffeine actually reduce skin cancer formation.
- You're struggling with facial inflammation and redness.
I've seen this professional-strength Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy Cream reduce facial redness and skin inflammation in thousands of patients. This includes people with rosacea, facial dandruff, acne, and redness from sun damage and irritating strong facial treatment products like Retin A or glycolic acid. In my opinion, this green tea product is at the very top of the list for the best rosacea skin care products made.
- You are looking for a product that gives you a very light facial skin hydration.
My Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy is formulated in a light textured cream that's loaded with hyaluronic acid. This makes it an excellent moisturizing alternative for those who don’t like a richer product feel on their skin. There is the slightest amount of sunflower oil in this lovely and antioxidant filled cream base. If you are extremely acne prone I recommend considering the Replenix CF Cream instead, which is entirely oil free.
Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy layers nicely with your other skin care products. It's compatible with all the products at DrBaileySkinCare.com.
Of course, there are millions of products on the multibillion dollar skin care market, but in my opinion, my professional-strength Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy Cream is absolutely the best of them all for antioxidant skin care!
