Module 4 - Youthful Skin Home Care Regimen
Beyond the Treatment Room
Rhonda Allison’s Minus 10 Youthful Skin Collection merges advanced science with natural, revolutionary formulas to bring you one of the most powerful re-youthing home care regimens available. Skin is restored and rejuvenated with actives that firm, tone, and stimulate collagen production, while also providing a luminous glow.
This synergistic regimen will enhance professional peel results and help maintain that pro-youth look. The system targets skin degradation and focuses on those critical areas of concern such as fine lines & wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffy eyes, sagging skin, crepey neck and dry, lifeless skin.

Oxidation is a major aggressor that creates skin and tissue dysfunction.Think about an apple that has been sitting out—it turns brown from oxidation. Antioxidants consist of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, and help prevent and repair damage to the skin by slowing or preventing free radical damage. Some natural sources of antioxidants include green tea, grapes, cloudberries, mangosteen, goji berries and zinc. Vitamin A & C are also powerful antioxidants that offer additional anti-aging effects, like firming, toning, and refining the skin.
Retinol & Retinaldehyde, both derivatives of Vitamin A, are used primarily as pro-youth ingredients. These ingredients are absorbed through the skin where they are converted to retinoic acid, resulting in an increased rate of skin cell turnover and collagen production. In addition, Rhonda Allison uses an encapsulated retinaldehyde for enhanced performance and maximum delivery, generating superior anti-aging benefits to the skin. Retinaldehyde is the least irritating form of Vitamin A, making it great for all skin types – even sensitive skin.
PEPTIDES & AMINO ACIDS
Amino Acids are vital for overall well being, and in home care can be an essential support for the skin. L-Arginine is one of 20 semi-essential amino acids present in all life forms and assists in opening up blood vessels, accelerating wound-repair activity, promoting collagen and elastin synthesis. This amino acid also has antioxidant properties, thwarting runaway free radicals, inhibiting lipid peroxidation.
Peptides are amino acids in chains and are the building blocks of necessary proteins. Considered “biomimetic” because they are inspired by nature and recognized by the body, yet designed in a lab, peptides are made up of a chain of at least two amino acids, linked together like pearls on a necklace. The arrangement of the “pearls” determines the function and desired biological activity of the particular peptide.
Structural/Cellular/Messenger Peptide – Stimulates the production of structural proteins or supporting structural proteins, improving the appearance of wrinkles.
Neuro Peptide – Inhibits the ability for neurons to transmit or receive information, reducing muscle contraction and improving the appearance of wrinkles.
Rejuvenating Peptide – Performs both the duties of a structural and neuro peptide or any other peptide that falls into an “other” category. i.e. antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, exfoliating, or healing.
Peptides are designed for collagen stimulation, hyaluronic acid synthesis, inflammation reduction, freezing expression lines, brightening, firming, anti-cellulite, and the ultimate goal— wrinkle reduction and prevention.
STEM CELL TECHNOLOGY
Stem cell culture technology is a unique process which triggers a plant’s defensive responses against biological stresses. Since every plant cell has the ability to regenerate new organs (leaves, stem, flowers, and seeds), plant cells have the ability to “dedifferentiate” and become stem cells. If a plant is wounded, surrounding cells dedifferentiate, forming a wound-healing tissue and building up new tissue.
Natural plant stem cells protect the skin cells and trigger the rejuvenation of new skin. These plant stem cells also boost the skin’s defense to oxidative stress and aid in the prevention of aging skin. This action helps provide protection from UVA photo damage, prevents post-inflammatory spots, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for healthier, more vibrant looking skin.
Pyruvic Acid is a key component in several metabolic pathways, including part of the Krebs cycle of cellular respiration. Generated from glucose through the process of glycolysis, pyruvic acid supplies energy to all living cells. Utilized to help boost ATP energy within the skin cells, increasing cellular metabolism and the functionality of the skin.
