When I was a young girl, I admired everything my mother did. To me, she was and is the most beautiful woman in the world. But while I was working as a skin research scientist at Harvard Medical School, I noticed that day-to-day stressors combined with aging and the effects of being a career woman while raising a family had begun to take a toll on my mother’s skin. I saw fine lines appear on her beautiful face, as well as, small spots of discoloration and a dull skin color overall. How was this possible when I was working knee-deep in the field of skin biology? Couldn’t I do something to help? I knew I had to do something and that’s just what I did. Surrounded by a team of innovative and wonderful scientists, I was able to get her a special handmade gift of love for New Year’s one year. I gave her a concoction that I had made for her to add to her daily skincare regimen. It was made from a cream and a serum duo that she could use as a topical regimen. Both were simple and safe to use, but effective in reversing the signs of premature aging. After two weeks, she saw noticeable improvements in her skin. She noticed a difference in her skin’s texture and the overall brightness of her skin tone. It didn’t take long for others to notice. Suddenly, my mom’s friends and colleagues were calling me up in the hopes to try out this amazing concoction. Once the calls started pouring in, I knew it was time to get serious about this revolutionary product. Along with a close dermatology friend of mine, we began conducting a clinical evaluation of my product with her colleagues in dermatology. Virtually everyone who tried the serum/cream duo felt it improved their skin in some way, whether by improving skin’s radiance and texture; reducing redness, acne, discoloration and other blemishes; or smoothing out fine lines. Today, we have expanded the product line to include a skincare regimen that heals and nourishes the skin. It’s all been possible from that one gift of love that I bestowed upon my mother some years ago. Without that powerful duo, DermYoung wouldn’t be possible and now it’s available for you and your mother to try as well in our powerful I-Genesis Starter Kit. Let’s take a closer look at this magic concoction and why you need to make it a staple of your beauty routine.


At the core of the I-Genesis Collection is the idea that the body has its own way of healing and rejuvenating itself. We just took that special superpower and harnessed it to give that self-rejuvenation a big boost especially after the effects of aging start to slow down the body’s ability to heal quickly. By filling in the gaps, your skin is able to heal and rejuvenate itself like new once again. So how does it work exactly? You can think of the powerhouse cream and serum pair as an anti-aging and skin barrier repair duo. This I-Genesis Starter Kit combo takes two essential products for your beauty regimen and begins to work on your skin as soon as you receive it.


The Starter Kit is made up of the I-Genesis Youth Essence, a 10 ml bottle of high-performance multi-action serum for age-defiance and correction. It helps to increase hydration, firmness and elasticity of the skin while also improving the appearance of dark spots all while brightening the complexion. The Vitamin C in the Youth Essence gives it its superpower. It gently opens your skin’s corneodesmosomes, which help to facilitate the entry of our lipophilic active ingredients that help activate barrier reinforcement. They’re kind-of like the bricks to our skin’s brick wall. The I-Genesis Revitalizing Crème (15g) is a high performance multi-benefit crème that helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help visibly firm and tighten the skin. The cream actually works to neutralize acidity, closes the gaps left in your skin’s self-rejuvenation routine and it even adds another dose of lipophilic active ingredients to reinforce the skin barrier. The use of both the cream and the serum ensure that all facial zones are visibly rejuvenated and that’s what makes them a powerhouse of a duo. It’s very exciting stuff in the field of skincare science.


To get the full benefits of a reinforced skin barrier, a hydrated and soothed appearance,  and a loss of inflammation, you’ll want to make sure to follow the directions for use. Don’t worry! We promise, it’s easy. To stimulate the collagen/elastin production and brighten your complexion, you’ll want to apply four to six drops of Youth Essence to fingertips and massage into facial skin after cleansing and toning. Allow five minutes for the serum to absorb, then apply the Revitalizing Crème. To reap the best benefits and those coveted optimal results, you’ll want to use the duo twice daily and make sure to wear sunscreen every day. Because of the presence of highly active ingredients in the Youth Essence, we recommend storing the Youth Essence in the refrigerator. You’ll also want to use the product quickly once it’s been opened.


The field of skin biology is ever-changing and one exciting development is that the I-Genesis Starter Kit can work well when used in conjunction with other treatments meant to boost collagen. Use the I-Genesis Starter Kit 1 to 2 weeks before you undergo Fraxel, Fractora, Ultherapy, LED light photo therapy and microneedling. Doing so can help prepare your cells for healing and collagen production. Used 3 days after one of these treatments can reduce your inflammation and give your collagen building a boost. You can also use it to prevent new spots from forming after an Intense Pulsed Light or Laser Treatment.

Who knew that what started as a gift of love would inspire and uplift so many women today. It’s exciting to get to be a part of something so wonderful and revolutionary to the skincare world. I’m thrilled to be able to watch the love I have for my mother extend outward to each and every one of you. We know you’ll love the I-Genesis Starter Kit for yourself and your loved ones and we’re excited to bring this option to you, as well as, more amazing options available in the entire I-Genesis Collection.
