You may have tried one of my best selling Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) products by now, such as my EGF Repair Cream or EGF Repair Serum. If not, it’s an ingredient worth incorporating into your antiaging regimen, as its benefits are incredible and wide-ranging. After two weeks of using an EGF-rich product, you’ll see some excellent results.
In 1986, Stanley Cohen and Rita Levi-Motalcini received the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for their discovery of EGF. This unique growth factor plays an essential role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation, differentiation and survival. It also stimulates synthesis of DNA, RNA, hydroxyproline and hyaluronic acid. As a result, this accelerates cell proliferation and repair of epidermal tissues, including our skin. In plain language, EGF stimulates and expedites the rejuvenation of our skin cells.
As we age, our epidermal cell growth decreases. This results in slower wound and scar healing, hyperpigmentation, freckles, wrinkles and other signs of aging. EGF binds to epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR) on the cell surface to boost DNA synthesis and cell rejuvenation, which can repair the epidermis, minimize pores, inhibit wrinkles, hydrate skin and slow down other signs of aging.
EGF also boosts the production of collagen and elastin, which are both critical to the skin’s healing process. Collagen is a group of proteins found in our connective tissues, which support all of our organs. Also found in the connective tissues, elastin is a protein that boasts the actual property of being elastic. Kind of like a rubber band, elastin helps our tissues snap back when they’re stretched or contracted.
In addition, EGF helps skin stem cells absorb nutrients, boosts cell metabolism and assists with the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and glycoproteins. Daily topical application of EGF-rich products, such as my EGF Repair Cream or EGF Repair Serum, will improve skin texture and appearance for unparalleled results.

For some reason, many people resist applying sunscreen every day, even though it is one of the most important anti-aging items in your arsenal—and one that many regret not using enough of over time. When there are products like my Protective Sunblock SPF 30 available that don’t turn your skin white or chalky, there really is no excuse—it should simply be a critical component of your antiaging skincare regimen.
Despite this, a question we often hear is, “Do I really need sunscreen when I’m wearing a hat?”
he answer is simple: absolutely.
While many want to believe that wearing a giant sun hat will do the job, keep in mind what you learned in science class back in the day. Harmful UV rays bounce off surfaces, such as pavement and walls, and guess where they go? Upward. They easily bounce into the shade provided by your hat, baseball cap or even the giant umbrella you post by your chair or beach towel, and hit your skin.
This means that if you are outside on a sunny day, your skin is bound to be exposed to these dangerous UV rays, even if you and your hat are tucked under an awning with a six-foot overhang. Worse yet, if you are at the edge of a shaded area, the reflected exposure will be even greater. If you’re on the water, it’s going to reflect stronger than ever.
Be strategic—if you invest your time and energy into good skincare products and doing your Facercises, why skip the oh-so-important step of applying your sunblock? Especially when you can use one like my Protective Sunblock SPF 30 that melts into your skin and isn’t greasy. Don’t forget to also apply it to your hands, neck and décolleté.

84. Firm up your neck with one move.
Grasp your neck so your palms are touching your neck and the insides of your wrists touch. Then, simply jut your head forward using the muscles in the front of your neck and release. Do 20 repetitions twice daily for full effect, says Carole Maggio, a licensed esthetician and author of Ultimate Facercise.
