YES EVEN THE HANDS NEED PROTECTION FROM THE SUN
ROBANDA SKIN CARE UPGRADES THEIR ANTI-AGING HAND TREATMENT
They say that if you really want to guess the age of a woman, then just look at her
hands for those all too telling age spots. Robanda Skin Care out of San Diego have
recently upgraded their Anti-Aging Hand Treatment ($21) by using a new ingredient
called Emblica. This is a whitening agent that when mixed with Retinol and Broad
Spectrum SPF 15 erases previous sun damage and UV rays which can be particularly

complex that is derived by fermentation with licorice extract, kojic and lactic

This product should be used twice a day and is geared to skin with dark spots,
freckles and discoloration that can be caused by the sun, pregnancy and old

over it at all times.
The triple action eye-gel comes in a 1 oz jar and contains deinonized water, vitamin A,
which is also known as Retinyl Palmitate to get extremely technical. When it comes to
the eyes the company also has Optimeyes Eye Treatment that contains a group of
amino acids called pentapeptides that work by renewing the skins outer layers.
Since we are big into serums, the Rejuvenating Serum will be checked out thoroughly,
and the chemist driven Robanda International have included an anti-oxidant called
Alpha-Lupaline that helps increase elasticity to the skin.
