Before we get to the Five Minutes with Dr. Tony Nakhla of Eighth Day, I need to tell you the story behind why he is here. The first time I read about Regenerative Serum by Dr. Tony Nakhla's Eighth Day brand was on Violet Grey, my go-to online source for rigorously tried and tested beauty products. It's co-founder Cassandra Grey's review of Eighth Day's Regenerative Serum, best summed up as "I want this youth giving formula over my face, all the time," had me at hello.
I tried it, and though they say it takes two weeks to make a difference, four days later my skin looked better – brighter, tighter and younger looking. I’ve never used any serum that has worked so quickly, to such an extent I honestly started to wonder if I was imagining it.
Further research revealed, no I was not imagining it at all. It works - but why? Like the Augustinus Bader (the creator behind the other science-led youth-giving moisturiser which has been a runaway success in the last few years) Dr. Tony Nakhla isn't a cosmetic doctor. Similarly to Bader who is a burns specialist, Nakhla, is a leading surgeon who works with cancer and HIV patients helping regenerate their skin from the inside out after skin cancer treatment.
Having spent years working out what skin needs to regenerate from trauma, he turned his expertise - and five years of his life - to creating a product that regenerates skin using bio-identical ingredients and its secret sauce, Peptide-Rich Plasma. Using it, your skin doesn't just not look more youthful, it actually becomes more youthful.
We can leave the rest of the story to Dr. Tony Nakhla.
