STAGELIGHTS Gel Creme. The active ingredients, Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol are the hip and savvy new kids on the block for treating aging skin and hyperpigmentation. Just listen to this:
Previously, you may have identified Hexylresorcinol as an ingredient in mouth washes and throat lozenges where its function was as an antiseptic and analgesic! Chemists are now understanding its enormous ability to address skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation.
Studies prove that Hexylresorcinol at .5% is just as effective as .2% Hydroquinone!
That’s not all, though! Hexylresorcinol also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Additionally, daily use increases protection against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays (Note: It is NOT a sunscreen itself.) as well as the cell suffocating damage caused by pollution. It does this by improving the skin’s natural barrier which reduces TDWL (trans dermal water loss), thus eliminating dehydration and keeping the skin moist and soft.
The other active ingredient in Stagelights, Niacinamide (also know as Vitamin B3 and Nicotinic Acid) increases free fatty acid levels and ceramides in skin, again, by improving the skin’s natural barrier and preventing TDWL. (Trans Dermal Water Loss)
By stimulating microcirculation, it too treats uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation.
It even helps to prevent and heal blemishes as well as the scarring resulting from them. Add to this the ability to address fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity, laxity of tone and uneven texture and you have a nearly perfect ingredient!
Combine these two together in one gel creme, suitable for All Skin Types, for use day or night or both and, Viola! You have STAGELIGHTS!
