1. Myth: “I treat myself to a chemical peel seasonally to keep my skin healthy and glowing!”
Truth: Without continuous use of an AHA in your weekly skin care regimen, quarterly chemical
peels will prove no long-term results.
AKTIV Clinical Gold HydroBright Rapid Reverse is better than a peel! It’s safe for at home
use and comes with a demonstration from your AKTIV Skin Coach when you purchase. With
ingredients like Alpha Arbutin, Hyaluronic Acid, Seaweed, Rumex Occcidentalis Extract and
Peptides,in top it provides all the potency of a chemical peel without the irritation!
2. Myth: “My skin gets a daily Vitamin C dose from my vitamins and diet.”
Truth: Vitamin C (L Ascorbic Acid) is a powerful ingredient inside and out. It works with 20
times more potency when applied topically than with oral only use. We all know it is as a
brightener but did you know it is wound healing and has the capability of accelerating collagen
and elastin synthesization?
AKTIV Evolution VITAGLOW C Serum not only has the brightening power to leave your skin
glowing but with the help of Vitamin E it is doubling down on free radical damage!
3. Myth: “I need a granular exfoliant to remove all the dead skin. Grit really helps my face feel
clean and soft.”
Truth: Mechanical exfoliants can be too abrasive causing microtears and inflammation in the
skin. They ultimately create more damage than people think. Chemical or Enzymatic exfoliants
dissolve keratin protein that builds up on the surface of the skin. They smooth, soften, and
maintain hydration levels of the epidermis.
AKTIV Botanical Pineapple Enzyme Mask is a fan favorite exfoliator. The enzymes found in
pineapple can slough away dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of blackheads, which
means it's ideal for anyone struggling with persistent spots. With the dead skin cells removed,
the skin is able to absorb serums and moisturizers more easily.
4. Myth: “I drink a gallon of water a day. My skin shouldn’t be dehydrated!”
Truth: You go girl! Hydration is vital for your organs to function and because of that your
internal organs will take priority as you consume water making it so it never quite reaches your
epidermis. Which is why it is so important to additionally topically hydrate your skin.
AKTIV Clinical Hyaluronic Revival Serum is the product for the job. With its potential to
hold up to 10,000 times its weight in water, your skin will definitely quench its thirst.
5. Myth: “I just use my face creams and serums for my under eyes.”
Truth: It is a common assumption that this is a way of getting the most out of your product. Your
eye skin is the thinnest area on your body which requires a much smaller molecular size to get
all the anti aging benefits. Instead, apply your creams and serums to your neck, decollete, and
hands since these areas age similarly to facial skin.
AKTIV Evolution Vita Sculpt Eye Cream is the perfect defender against damage and
aging around the eyes. Jam-packed with superstar ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Retinoate
and Collagen to sculpt and plump out fine lines and wrinkles!
6. Myth: “I have oily skin. Believe me, I don’t need any more moisture!”
Truth: Oil and water are not the same. The amount of oil you create is genetic and dependent
upon your pore size. Every skin type needs hydration. Girl, believe me without hydration your
skin is struggling!
AKTIV Clinical Hyaluronic Acid Revival Serum is the product for you. With its lightweight
gel consistency, it’s perfect for all skin types. It gives all the hydration without the heavy, greasy
feel. Shoutout to the Red Tea Extract packing this product with antioxidants to target free radicals
7. Myth: “I don’t use a toner because it dries my skin out. I don’t even know what the purpose of
using it is.”
Truth: Toners are commonly confused with astringents containing a higher alcohol content. The
benefit of using a toner is to restore the skin’s pH to it’s natural balance of 5.5 after cleansing
and exfoliating. It reduces the harmful effects of stripping the skin that can be caused by the
cleansing and exfoliating processes.
AKTIV Clinical Antioxidant pH Restoration is full of antioxidants to fight free radical
damage caused by the sun, environmental and air pollutants that we are exposed to daily! A
quick spritz is the perfect way to start and end your day!
