Sirtuin - The Fountain of Youth?
Seven years ago scientists were still hypothesising about the life-extending abilities of a group of enzymes called sirtuins. Present in almost all living cells, these enzymes (in a nutshell) control whether your cell decides to A) commit suicide, or B) take a deep breath, repair its DNA, and go on living a fuller and happier life. Cells that live longer are clearly going to make skin look younger, and the powers that be immediately began to work on unlocking sirtuin's age defying secrets. Fast forward several years and those geniuses at REN Skincare seem to have done it again. By activating these sirtuin enzymes with an extract found in rice, they are able to keep them happy and super-productive - in turn, meaning you get to keep the beautiful skin you’ve got for longer. Throw in a powerful line eraser (a patented hexapeptide-11), a hydrating miracle molecule (hyaluronic acid) and an awesomely high level of skin brightening vitamin C, and you have a tag team that packs a pretty powerful punch. After only three weeks my skin is better hydrated, much brighter, and I've noticed that frown lines are definitely less visible. Active, clean skincare that delivers?
