A question about green tea based antioxidants.

Hi Dr. Irwin, I know that you like some of the Replenix products. I purchased the Replenix cream based on your recommendation and love it! I just also purchased the new Power of Three cream with resveratrol, caffeine, and green tea and am wondering what you think of it if you have tried it. Thanks!

I’m wondering if there is a high enough concentration of the resveratrol and green tea to really make any difference.   I’m doing some research on this now.  Also, I do think that the higher strength Vitamin C serums 15-20% may give better results than the green tea products but so many people can’t use those due to irritation.  I think the green tea is a nice alternative for those who are more sensitive. Here is more information on repair products.   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
