Sounds like a well formulated product. Has anybody experienced what dermatologists call 'skin fatigue' with the product? That is, most products simply stop working for some skins. Related to enzymatic disruption in the skin - don't worry it's non fatal and easily reversed by adopting a protocol in which you use the product less often ie a few days a week instead of daily or you have a short break from it. Andrea's daughter probably provides a good example of how a well formulated product works particularly well after resting the skin (before the skin has time to tire of the active ingredients in the cream).

Wish this was available outside the US and not just on mail order... My DH won't let me order online   Do they send samples at all, so at least I can show him that is is so good and worth buying?

Yes Aani, mine is not coming out.  When I looked inside, the straw came loose from the top.  So I tried using some tweezers to fish it out but couldn't.  Now I have the bottle up side down.  That seems to work.


This isn't good, it contaminates the product and diminishes the efficacy.  I would call NAP and advise them of the problem so they can address it with company that is bottling their products.

Thanks for posting this.  I have dedicated a whole chapter about this in the book that I am writing.  This also happens with products like shampoo and deordorants.  All to often patients or customers quit using a product because they don't think it is working anymore.  When actually they are experiencing "skin fatigue".  Shifting your regimine for a week and then returning to the product you love will jump start your skin again.

It's an interesting effect, but apparently it doesn't happen with retinoids. Are you a dermatologist Frosty?

yes, retin a (do you mean 'touted'? although I do like tooted hehe)
Worse stuff than burns. Some very recent research has shown a connection between tazorac use and an increase in mortality amongst older men. It's not a well designed study at all but it's got alarm bells ringing.

eh,

No I am not a dermatologist.  I am a paramedical aesthetician and have been since 1986.  I have worked closely with derms and plastics over the years and have a pretty good working knowledge of the skin.  I ventured out on my own back in 1999 opening my own skin care and permanent makeup clinic that is results oriented.  Basicly, I am hard core skin care and PMU and I do not do any "princess treatments" in my practice.

I am also a 17 year veteran flight attendant that is looking forward to retirement some day.  The job has given me a lot of freedom and I only work approx 45 days per year, this year far less than that maybe only 20 days and that is why I haven't quit.  With that freedom I have had the time to culitivate my skin care practice and spend the majority of my time doing what I love and that is making women look and feel beautiful.

Many of my patients or clients are flight attendants and their skin really needs the help.  Since they are in a tube of recirculating dry air all day long and as about as close to elements of bad UVA rays that you can get, their skin gets dry, tough and asphyxiated, resembling that of an orange peel.  I also happen to have several nurses that are regulars.  They generally work long hours and are so busy caring for others that taking care of their skin is a low priority for them UNTIL they start aging.  However, I have found that to be the case with a lot of women.  Menopause strikes and their skin starts to take a nose dive, it's like a light goes on and a bell goes off and they come rushing in saying HELP, CAN YOU HELP ME?  If I can't, I sure know who can and I refer them off to a plastics doc.  I eventually get them back after their nip and tuck for maintanence and they are very compliant at that point.

Well that is my story.  I am just a gal in Arizona that has a huge respect for the largest organ our bodies have and our first line of defense, the skin.

I've been using this product for about six weeks and like it.  Really love the scent too.  I was wondering what people are using for around the eye area.  I usually use an eye cream and wonder if it's still needed with the Genoma skin products.

In the past what have you used eye cream for?  Fine lines, crows feet, dark circles, puffiness??

Ok, the face washes sound easy and great THANKS, what about a moisturizer? I would also like to hear what you recommend for around the eyes. I live and work in the high desert and my skin could use some help. In the bad old days all the moisturizers and sun screens were so full of junk they would make my face break out horribly so I tended to avoid them, I could use some help! I do like the Genoma line, but they don't have anything specific for eyes, or sun screen (when I'm out in the field I'm out for 8 to 10 hours a day in the desert sun). Right now I use Neutrogena's sun screen SPF 55 for faces, and I wear a big hat.

I've always used eye cream (Estee Lauder - but haven't used for two or three years now; currenly using No. 7 which I fear is full of BAD ingredients; will also use pure hyloronic acid with some water and dab in) for preventative measures, and have not had major lines until menopause, and now have all of the above!

I really appreciate the tip to take breaks from any particular facial regime!  It has proven effective for me.  When I'm not using Genoma, I love to use Honey Girl Face and Eye Creme, Night Creme and Facial Cleanser.  Click Here

I was very surprised with the effectiveness of Genoma products.  The first thing I saw was a diminishing of lines and wrinkles.  The creams are great!

I used the cleanser as a light mask after cleaning my skin with my Honey Girl cleanser.  I left the Genoma cleanser on my skin for 15 minutes or so before bed, then rinsed it off and applied the night cream.  My skin actually tingled and became pink from the product.  It's well worth looking into!  

Thumbs up!

Stormy and Samy,

I love Hyaluronic Acid, also known as sodium hyaluronate, it is awesome for use around the eye.

As I said earlier, I love Squalene too.  I use it after cleansing and before my moisturizer at night and during the day I use it and follow up Zinc (I use as sunscreen) then with my makeup.  Some people use it as their moisturizer.

So, for the sunscreen question I use Zinc.

As for eye creams.  I don't like using fragrance around the eye.  There are many good eye creams out there, that are frangrance free.

Here are some of my favorites that I like in skin care creams.  The list is long so I am only posting a few of my fav's.  Also, following that a few more recipes that I like.  You can use any of the eye cream recipes as a moisturizer for dry skin.  If you have oily skin I will have to help you tweek it.

Squalene - penetrates deep into the skin and accelerates new cell growth. Heals burns, protects from the elements, and soothes shaving irritations. A natural skin supplement from the sea that softens and diminishes tiny facial lines.

Shea Butter Un-refined also known as Raw Shea Butter - Moisturizes, reduces wrinkles, stretch marks, age marks, skin discolorations and infuses the skin with naturally occurring vitamin E.

Jojoba Oil - Has proven to work well with acne prone skin. When applied to the skin, Jojoba oil balances sebum levels and also possesses anti-bacterial properties that prevent breakouts. Its ability to prevent moisture loss makes Jojoba oil ideal for use on dry skin, eczema and other problematic skin conditions.

Azulene - Has shown to have dramatic anti-inflammatory effects and significant anti-oxidant protection.  It will help to prevent skin blemishes from developing and will help stop deterioration of skin cells that leads to wrinkles, fine lines and skin discoloration.

Kukui Nut Oil - is a rich source of vitamins A, E, and F as well as essential fatty acids, such as linoleic and linolenic acid.  It is rapidly absorbed and doesn't leave the skin feeling oily.  It can be used on dry, mature, wrinkled skin to restore elasticity and firmness.  It can be used on sun damaged skin to prevent wrinkles and rejuvenate or on sunburned skin to prevent wrinkles and dehydration.  It can be used on problem skin ie, eczema, psoriasis, acne, or blemishes to help alleviate symptoms.

Vitamin K - Best way to treat dark circles under the eyes.

Neroli Oil - Any type of skin can benefit from Neroli oil. It is particularly good for dry, irritated or sensitive skin. It regulates oiliness and minimizes enlarged pores. Neroli oil helps to clear acne and blemished skin.


Apricot and Aloe eye cream
Makes 2 ounces
Used on a regular basis, this rich cream will help chase away crow's feet and laugh lines.

     1 teaspoon Apricot kernel oil
     1 teaspoon grated Beeswax
     1/2 teaspoon Aloe Vera gel
     3 drops Grapefruit seed Essential Oil
     1 Vitamin E capsule

Combine oil and Beeswax in the top of a double boiler. Heat until wax has melted; remove from the heat. Using a wooden spoon, beat in the aloe gel.
Allow to cool slightly and add Essential Oil and Vitamin E (puncture the capsule and squeeze out its contents), stirring well. Pour into a small jar. Cool and cap tightly. Apply nightly before bed.

Cocoa Butter eye creamThis rich and buttery cream gives the under-eye area extra care and conditioning at night, while the skin rests and repairs itself. Cocoa butter and coconut oil traditionally have been used to treat fine lines around the eyes and mouth. They also help soften and protect delicate skin. This eye cream is very rich, so use sparingly; a small amount is all you need for soft, healthy skin in the morning.

2 tablespoons grated cocoa butter
3 tablespoons coconut oil

1. Mix ingredients together in a small saucepan or container and heat gently, but do not boil.

2. Pour into a small, clean container and allow mixture to cool completely. Apply nightly under your eyes to soothe and condition your skin.

Walnut Oil eye creamWalnut oil is used to treat dry skin and is a key ingredient in many anti-wrinkle and anti-aging products. Use a small amount of this eye cream to protect and nourish the delicate under-eye area.

1 tablespoon grated beeswax
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons walnut oil
1 tablespoon rosewater or distilled water

1. Mix together beeswax and oils in a small container or saucepan and heat gently until the wax is melted. Stir well and slowly stir in the rosewater.  

2.  Allow the mixture to cool and continue to stir so that the oil and water mixtures remain mixed. Spoon the cream into a small container.

Moisturizer
Ginger Skin CreamGinger invigorates, and oil soothes.

     2-inch piece of fresh ginger
     2 teaspoons light sesame oil
     2 teaspoons apricot kernel oil      
            2 teaspoons vitamin E oil      
            ½ cup cocoa butter

Preheat oven on lowest setting. Finely grate the ginger just enough so that you have about an 1/8 teaspoon of ginger "juice." To obtain the juice, squeeze the freshly grated ginger over a small bowl. Place the ingredients (including the ginger) in a glass container and heat just until the cocoa butter is melted and the oils are blended. Pour into a clean, dry container and store in a cool dry place. You can add a few drops of orange or other essential oil for a nice twist.
