Get to Know Your Skin with Dr. Brown
Q: What are the best products for puffy eyes?
Dr. Brown: Our best products for puffy eyes are Masques des Yeux and Intensité Les Yeux Firming Eye Cream. Both have Hyaluronic Acid which can help with volume loss. While it may sound counterintuitive, volume loss around the eye area can add to the appearance of puffiness. Our Intensité Les Yeux features metalloproteinase inhibitors to help promote firmness and target puffy eyes.
Q: Which RéVive products do you suggest for Men with oily (T-zone) / sensitive skin?
Dr. Brown: For men, I always recommend a simple regimen such as our Moisturizing Renewal Cream Nightly Retexturizer which can combat ingrown hair and oily skin. I would also recommend our Gel Cleanser Gentle Purifying Wash followed by our Balancing Toner Soothing Skin Refresher to keep the skin clean and feeling fresh.
Q: What is Epidermal Growth Factor? Does it help the look of fine lines / wrinkles?
Dr. Brown: Epidermal Growth Factor is a naturally occurring hormone / protein which promotes cell renewal. As we age, biological processes naturally slow and EGF helps stimulate skin renewal to combat the signs of aging.
Q: Harmful or helpful to use your Intensité products (your strongest line) in my 30s?
Dr. Brown: Everyone's skin is different, and it is very difficult to make the generalization that a certain cream is right for a certain chronological age. Some people require different levels of moisturization despite chronological age.
Q: What is the best way / products to reduce dark spots from the sun?
Dr. Brown: Sunspots are the scourge of UV sun ray as they develop slowly over a number of years. The most important aspect in treating them is sun protection. Our Perfectif line of products is designed to address skin discoloration and dark spots so we suggest using Perfectif Even Skin Tone Serum Dark Spot Corrector AM/PM under a moisturizer, Perfectif Night Even Skin Tone Cream with Retinol at night and Perfectif Even Skin Tone Cream with SPF 30 for protection during the day.
