Put off the visible signs of aging
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Regenerating collagen and elastin
- Putting off the visible signs of aging
Are you noticing the lines around your eyes, sagging skin, brown spots and other depressing signs of aging?
You don't need to put up with these, just because you're a man! Skin care products are not just for women. As more and more men are discovering, you can turn back the clock and put off the visible signs of aging ... so you don't need to look old before your time!
It's important to note, though, that there are subtle differences in the composition of men's and women's skin, particularly as far as the face is concerned, so it is not practical to grab some ladies' day cream and think that it will do the job.
We have addressed these differences and developed a specially-formulated men's facial fluid, using the most advanced cell rejuvenation technology available today. Although a number of the ingredients are in the women's formulations, there are some special extra ones that are added just for men.
Our Men's Age Defense Active Facial Fluid will:
- Soothe your skin and reduce redness and/or inflammation
- Help reduce 'age' spots and skin damage
- Reduce roughness caused through the environment
- Help repair damage through general neglect
Men's skin is particularly prone to inflammation and redness
It is not easy to get this under control ... but our Age Defense Active Facial Fluid and other products in our men's skin care range deal specifically with this problem. Just one of the active ingredients in our facial moisturiser has a proven track record in this area. We are referring to that unique ingredient, Xtend-TK. One of its properties is that it inhibits Prostaglandin E2 production, which is the cause of inflammation.
Xtend-TK blocks PGE2 production, the major biochemical pathway leading to inflammation and redness in the skin.
But this is only the start ...
The active ingredients that we use in our facial fluid all work together in synergy, with the specific aim of de-aging your skin.
Xtend-Life skincare products work by targeting the 3 main causes of aging skin
- Loss of collagen and elastin
- Lower levels of hyaluronic acid
- Oxidation through the action of free radicals
These are the culprits that cause your wrinkles, sagging and dull skin, and the many other visible signs of aging.
So, what we've done with all our skin care products is ensure that we have addressed all these issues with great success.
This is how we did it!
1. For stimulating collagen and elastin regrowth
We used Xtend-TK, which is a very new breakthrough in skin care ... not yet available in the big brand-name products. It is proven in clinical trials to stimulate the regrowth of collagen, elastin and new skin cells. As your collagen and elastin levels increase, your wrinkles will slowly but surely disappear ... and your skin will regain a youthful glow!
2. Boosting hyaluronic acid
This special ingredient is called phytessence wakame, and is an extract from a specific type of sea kelp. It inhibits a harmful enzyme (hyaluronidase) which breaks down hyaluronic acid in your skin. Thus your levels of hyaluronic acid will gradually increase to the amounts normally found in a much younger person! This is also clinically proven.
3. Destroying free radicals
We use a number of potent anti-oxidants but one of the best is Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10. This is CoEnzyme Q10 in a special 'nano-emulsion' form, which can penetrate down through seven layers of skin. It is extremely effective at 'gobbling up' free radicals in your skin, which results in quite a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect.
Most skincare products tackle only one, or at the most two of these three key reasons for aging skin. But we've targeted all three ... using the most powerful natural ingredients known to science.
But that is not all ...
In addition to these three special ingredients we have added further active ingredients to this formula to boost its anti-aging properties even further! (You can learn more about what we use in our Age Defense Active Facial Fluid by referring to the ingredient section.)
Working in synergy to de-age your skin!
All these ingredients work together in synergy, so their combined anti-aging effect is much greater than the sum of their individual benefits.
Furthermore, the amount of each active ingredient is substantially higher than in most other skin care products, which makes it truly effective as an anti-aging product for both men and women.
Our Age Defense Active Facial Fluid Formula will penetrate deeply into your skin, to nourish it with natural goodness. In addition to making you look younger on the outside it will also work daily to rejuvenate the health of your skin which pays major dividends in the long term..
This product is suitable for all skin types ....and all climates.
Important Note ...
Some people think they can reverse the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid in their skin by using collagen or hyaluronic acid, either orally in a supplement, or topically in a skincare product. But simply rubbing these substances on to your skin, or ingesting them, does not replace deficiencies in the skin. You must stop their degradation, which is a complex biological function!
This is achieved by providing your skin with the nutrients it needs, via an effective delivery system so your skin can perform its own 'magic'. ALL Xtend-Life skin care products successfully do this.
The following are the key ingredients in Active Facial Fluid
As well as these key ingredients that make this product so advanced, it also contains other ingredients that are also essential in producing a quality product. For a complete list of all the ingredients that are used in our skincare range with both their INCI and common names please click here
Xtend-TK truly is the closest thing to a miracle ingredient in reversing the aging process of the skin. It contains bio-active keratin, which is similar to the basic protein found in human skin. This means it is powerfully effective in rejuvenating the skin. In fact, Xtend-TK is almost like applying a 'liquid skin' to your face and body, in a unique bio-available form which stimulates the growth of new skin cells. Furthermore, it is a wonderful moisturizer, which penetrates deeply into the skin, and also forms an invisible barrier to retain moisture.
Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10 is a special 'nano-emulsion' form of CoenzymeQ10, which penetrates deeply into your skin. It has been shown in scientific studies to produce quite a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect. This is due to its ability to increase collagen and elastin production in the skin.
Natural vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) is a powerful antioxidant, which has been shown in many scientific studies to reverse the effects of aging on the skin. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and also helps prevent the appearance of age spots.
Phytessence wakame is an extract from sea kelp, renowned for its health-giving properties. Particularly, it inhibits the activity of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid, together with elastin and collagen, is essential to maintain the elasticity, smoothness and tone of your skin. Without hyaluronic acid, the elastin and collagen fibers lose their "glue", which makes you look older, with dark eye circles.
Capuacu butter comes from the fruit of the Capuacu tree, which is native to South America. It has been used for thousands of years by native tribes to protect against the sun and to help heal burns. Capuacu butter is a superb moisturizer for the skin and is also an excellent emollient, which makes the skin feel softer and look younger. It is rich in essential fatty acids, particularly stearic and oleic acid, which are vital nutrients for the skin. It helps to soothe inflamed skin and also makes your skin feel wonderfully fresh after showering.
Babassu is a light, natural wax, which softens and soothes your skin (giving it a nice velvet like feel) and creates an invisible barrier to retain moisture and keep out dirt and grime. It is made from Babassu oil, from the kernel of the fruit of Babassu palm, which grows in the Amazon region of Brazil and has been used for centuries to soothe the skin. Babassu oil is beneficial for both dry and oily complexions. It gently moisturizes the skin without making it oily. It has proven benefits for eczema, itchy, dry and inflamed skin.
Grapeseed oil is a powerful antioxidant and also creates an invisible film on your skin, to keep in moisture. It is especially effective for repairing the skin around the eyes and has also been shown to reduce stretch marks on the skin. Grapeseed oil is rich in linoleic acid and several other essential oils which are necessary for skin health, and it also contains natural vitamin E.
D-Panthenol (vitamin B5) helps repair skin tissue and acts as a natural moisturizer. It also protects the skin naturally against sunburn, provides relief for existing sunburn, and enhances the natural tanning process.
Witch hazel is renowned for its natural soothing effect on the skin. Because of its ability to reduce inflammation and redness on the skin, something to which men's skin is particularly prone, we have included it as unique ingredient in our men's facial fluid. Witch hazel is a natural anti-oxidant and astringent. It has been shown to be effective in helping many skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, and cracked or blistered skin. Witch hazel is also traditionally known as a good first reaction against shaving cuts and abrasions for men and is also effective for helping sunburn.

We also have new FAQs posted daily in the "Q&A Directory" under Xtend-Life Blog, some of which may related to this product... View Xtend Life daily Q&A Directory for more info.
If your skincare products are so good, why aren't they more expensive?
Many people think, the more you pay for a product, the better it must be. Well, of course, there's an element of truth in this. But when you look at the skincare market, there are some outrageous prices being charged for some very mediocre products even the top brand names are not what you think they are.
We've chosen a totally different way of pricing our products than most other leading skincare companies which gives you a far superior product for as little as 1/3rd the price of top brands. There is an explanation as to why we can do this.
Why don't you include an SPF factor in your skincare products?
It would be easy and inexpensive for us to add an SPF factor to our products, like most companies do. But from a philosophical viewpoint we won't do it, because of the possible health risks.
This might seem controversial, considering everything you've been told about the importance of protecting your skin from the sun. But we've done extensive research into this issue, and we have a valid reason for not including an SPF factor which you should know about.
Does 'all skin types' mean, Normal, Dry, Oily, Combination, Acne-Prone skin etc?
Yes, all of our products have been developed to cater for all skin types and all climates. This is possible because of the absence of mineral oils and other substances that would normally cause a problem on some skin types and/or block the pores.
Are there any ingredients that could cause sensitive skin to irritate more?
No, as a matter of fact not only have we ensured that we do not have any ingredients that are likely to irritate the skin, we have included special nutrients that calm and soothe the skin.
Why do you not use any fragrances?
All fragrances in skin care products are synthetic chemicals and many of them can create allergies or irritation. To use a 'natural' fragrance would require larger quantities and then in turn that fragrance would require additional preservative to prevent it from becoming rancid.
Does the Xtend-Life range of skincare products have an odor?
No, they are almost odorless. There is a faint 'natural' smell of the extracts but because it penetrates into the skin rapidly it quickly becomes undetectable.
Will the Natural Whitening Cream reduce the appearance of freckles and age spots?
During the preliminary testing of this product, yes a reduction was observed.
Are the products Non-Comedogenic?
Can these products help with Rosacea?
Yes, a number of the ingredients specifically target inflammation and help reduce the redness associated with Rosacea. Have a look at the information on Xtend-TK in the ingredient section for more information.
Is it OK to apply your products on broken or irritated skin?
Indeed it is and it is likely to help in the healing process.
When could I expect to see benefits from using these products?
This is an impossible question to answer as it will vary from person to person, and will depend greatly on the current condition of your skin. For example, the poorer condition your skin is in the quicker you will see results. If your skin is in good condition the results will take longer to become obvious and they will be more subtle. For example, some people will notice a difference in the feel of their skin in just days but for others it may take some weeks. It may be a couple of months before you start getting complements that you are looking good...but, invariably they will come.
I am Asian and would like to lighten my skin. How long does the whitening cream take to work?
You should begin to notice the difference (or at least other people will) within a few weeks. Because we use a purely natural solution (nutgrass extract) it is not immediate like some chemical based whitening creams are. However, unlike other whitening 'solutions' this whitening cream provides all the benefits of our normal day cream, so you do not have to buy two products.
I currently use a very expensive placenta serum which contains Keratin. Would your product be as good?
It is better! The reason for this is that the Keratin from Xtend-TK is much more active and integrates into your skin cells more effectively. Xtend-TK is the only product that has successfully extracted the Keratin in a stable bio-active form. Refer to the info on Xtend-TK to get a better appreciation of this ingredient.
Why do I need a separate eye serum? Can't I use the day cream or facial fluid?
This is because the area around the eyes has very thin membranes and some of the nutrients that are used in the face and body creams are designed to go deep into the skin. This is something that is not desirable around your eyes as they may become irritated. This is why we use some very special ingredients in the eye gel such as Eyeliss so you can get maximum benefits without any risk to your eyes.

The best moisturizer I've used
I'm a long time customer who have been using this product since it came out on the Xtend-Life's website (5 years give or take). I'm a guy with crazy sensitive, oily skin that rarely tolerates anything. Ever since I started using this product, I knew that it was the end of my search for the perfect moisturizer. One of the things that separates it from the other moisturizers is that it's not sticky in the least, and it does not just sit there on the skin surface, your skin drinks this stuff no matter how much you apply. I usually use it on top of some other skin serums that I use and it really does the trick in keeping my skin moisturized while working with the serum below it to give the skin extra protection. I also use the eye serum version of it as well which I also highly recommend, I don't have a single line around my eyes (I'm almost 25). If you're a guy and you're looking for something that truly moisturizes you skin with no fragrances, parabens or irritants, look no more.
It's also important to mention that avoiding being in the sun in the peak hours or using a sunscreen (zinc oxide sunscreen not chemical ones) will also a long way in keeping your skin nice and youthful.
for effects too early to tell, to see the use ...
Because recent use. I can not say more for now.
- Use morning and night.
- After cleansing and drying your face and neck, apply Men's Facial Fluid evenly over the area.
- Gently massage the fluid in, using an upward and outward motion.
I felt compelled to write on on the Men's Facial Fluid! I have sought up and down for years spending literally thousands of dollars on finding the right Moisturiser for my sensitive acne prone skin. I believe this product to be superior to any other moisturiser in the world!! After using it for a month my redness is gone, a couple blemishes have cleared up very nicely..My skin looks flawless! Thank you- Brad S, USA
I have been a customer of the Men's Active Facial Fluid and I have to say that this is the best moisturiser I have used and the best one I have come across with researched/effective ingredients. I have recommended this to all my friends and family.- Badrul I, USA

Some of you are familiar with the claim that telomeres - the DNA at the end of each chromosome - are a key determinant of aging.
There are telomeres in every cell of your body. The shorter they get, the older you look and feel. But when telomeres are prevented from becoming shorter, or they are lengthened, the body is programmed to create younger cells. Telomerase is the enzyme which is critical in the process of rebuilding telomeres and rejuvenating cells (ref. 1).
Unfortunately, telomerase can be easily ‘blocked’ or ‘de-activated’. This blog looks at what causes the blockage, and how you can prevent it.
