Did you know there are enzymes that "eat" and "digest" the collagen/elastin in the face?

And did you know these enzymes are also directly involved in the development of different skin cancers?

There is a family of enzymes created in your skin when the skin is exposed to sun.  

These enzymes are called MMPs, and they "digest" or "eat" the collagen in your face. 

(google "what does MMP do to collagen" to confirm this).  

Even more insidious, these MMPs unwind the triple-helix structure of the collagen.

This is important because not only do MMPs reduce collagen but also reduce the ability of the collagen (and elastin) to bounce and be firm.  

Key Point: Blocking these MMPs is a primary goal of preventing and repairing sun damage.  

If you could stop these enzymes from doing their thing,  you would.  

And you can using two key ingredients in Our Night-Day Cream.    (Google "trylagen pcb MMP" to confirm this.).  

Use the TRY code to save 50% today on our Night/Day Cream.  Prices are going up across the line, save when you buy 3 packs.

Add TONED to your order for 50% off using the TRY code, to target cellulite and wrinkles on your whole body.    

Not just about wrinkles, MMPs are involved in the development of all skin cancers: 

1. "Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are zinc-containing endopeptidases with an extensive range of substrate specificities. Collectively, these enzymes are able to degrade various components of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins." 

2. "Additionally, MMPs are involved in angiogenesis, which promotes cancer cell growth and migration. In this review, we focus on the present knowledge about premature skin aging and skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma, with our main focus on members of the MMP family and their functions."   (source)
