I think I understand what the whole "thicker skin" thing is about. I have had immediate results from adding the de-puff concentrate to my base cream (from the starter kit). My undereye dark circles are reduced which makes the skin under my eyes appear to be thicker and blend better with my actual skin tone. I believe it has to do with the capillaries or something, I can't remember the technology so dont quote me (hannah can explain I'm sure!). 

Just wanted to suggest people give the de-puff and or bright eye a try because I love it! I use less concealer now!!

I am having great success with Let's Make Collagen around the eye area and of course the face. I am 40 years old with twins and I need all the help I can get.  I am so happy I found Skin Actives.. It has changed the way I feel about skincare and all the gimmicks. I want the real stuff.

t makes me uncomfortable when young people come to the forum trying to get help to correct their skin "problems". With so many problems these days with negative self-image leading to eating disorders and worse, I will block postings that seem to be going in that direction.


First, I just want to thank you for saying this.... Its ironic but I saw my old senior pics that someone posted for our 20 year high school reunion and I can't believe how pretty I was... how pretty everyone was... I can't believe I used to worry about anything skin wise!  Anyways, seeing those pics put everything in perspective... recently I've been taking the changes in my skin very hard (some of it is natural, like the hollowing under the cheekbones, and some is from past sun-damage)... but I realized that when I am 50 I would be thrilled to look like I do today.... and that helped me stopped fretting.  That's not to say that I don't constantly work to improve and protect my skin, but that I strive to love myself and see the beauty in whatever state I'm in

I have to say that at your age, the emphasis should be in prevention: antioxidants and sunscreen. Maybe acne treatment if you have it, but there should be enough EGF in your skin so that you don't need anymore. The EGF we sell is to compensate for the decline in EGF production that occurs with aging.

At what age would you say that EGF has started to decline enough to warrant use of LMC.  Or is it determined by past habits as much as chronological age.  I finished my first bottle and love it.  I just want to make sure its appropriate.  I'm 38.

It is appropriate. Try also our energizing cream.

I put a couple drops of my concealer on a flat surface.  I use a toothpick to add just a tiny amount of liquid crystal and mix it together.  It does wonders for the blue coloring under my eyes!

Skin thickness varies with location in the face, and that's a fact of life. With age, we start losing fat under the skin and I think that is what we see in the mirror. But yes, our serums and creams with EGF and KGF do thicken the skin because that is what they do: they promote normal cell division and the synthesis of proteins that make up our skin.

Whether the effects will be large enough to satisfy our own criticism of ourselves is debatable: every woman seems to be looking for the magic Photoshop elixir that erases wrinkles, soothes skin and makes Photoshop skin glow. We will never get that because it does not exist.

O the other hand, please forget about fillers, please. The dangers are immense, the benefits very doubtful. What people don't realize is that the fine print in the contract reflects actual dangers. You are signing away your face.

Please think of the future, when you are 80 and you either have healthy skin or skin damaged by all the advertised but unproven skin "treatments".
