    Starting Over
    Nature’s alternative to injections.
    If you say no to needles but long to see a more line-free face, discover nature’s alternative. Our clinically tested & scientifically proven formula helps reduce the appearance of lines & wrinkles. And simultaneously helps rebuild natural collagen. Of course, it’s not an injectible - but used regularly it does help skin look measurably younger. And 9 out of 10 of those tested said they’d prefer it over injections because there’s no pain or downtime.
    Some see a flower. We see the future.
    Mimosa Tenuiflora
    This tree, native to the northeastern region of Brazil & is found as far north as southern Mexico, has been used for hundreds of years to speed recovery of burns & wounds. In 1985, when The Red Cross ran out of conventional medicine after the Mexican earthquake, they turned to Mimosa & it worked! Now Origins has proven it is also a potent stimulator of natural collagen.

    Meet Dr. Lieve DeClercq
    Dr. DeClercq heads Origins Global Plant Medicine Team. She has a PhD in Plant Physiology & Molecular Biology. We asked her for the inside scoop on Starting Over.
    Q: What causes lines & wrinkles?
    A: Young, sun-protected skin is supported by collagen. But in older, exposed skin, collagen bundles become more fragmented. And as you age, skin’s ability to produce collagen decreases, & it releases more destructive enzymes that fragment collagen. When skin loses its mechanical strength, it sinks; that’s how we develop a wrinkle. The more skin loses its framework, the more lines emerge
    Q: What amazed you most in the development of Starting Over?
    A: We discovered an incredible plant - Mimosa tenuiflora. The bark of this plant has been used for hundreds of years in South America to stimulate wound healing. Working with the University of Strasbourg, we identified the active constituent in the bark of Mimosa. And to our delight, we discovered that it actually stimulates collagen synthesis & slows down collagen degradation.
    Q: How long will it take to see the results from Starting Over?
    A: Some results can be seen immediately. For example, skin radiance. Other skin benefits increase over time. After just 4 weeks, test panelists demonstrated a significant reduction in the appearance of lines & wrinkles, as well as additional improvements in radiance & skin tone after 8 weeks.

    For thousands of years Mimosa has been used to help heal burns and wounds. In 1985, modern medicine put it to the test. When the Red Cross ran out of conventional medicine following an earthquake in Mexico, they turned to Mimosa - and it worked. Now studies have proven Mimosa is also a potent stimulator of natural collagen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Daily Moisturizer Priority #1: Plentiful moisturizing that won't clog my acne-prone pores or slick my naturally oily skin. SUCCESS! While I do use this moisturizer more liberally than other alternatives (including several other Origins products I've tried), probably because of its feather-light texture, it leaves my face feeling baby soft and not the least greasy. Priority #2: Prevent the proliferation of the (very) fine lines that have recently started to show around my face. SUCCESS! Start Over has successfully smoothed and plumped nearly all of my fledgling collagen-loss lines. More importantly, its resupplying my skin and preventing new fine lines from forming. However, unlike other Origins moisturizing options, this one doesn't offer any SPF protection to prevent sun damage. (Not so much a problem for me, since my liquid foundation is SPF 20, but perhaps a concern for those who use non-protective or powder options.) Priority #3: Skin texture and glow. SUCCESS! Soft, soft, soft. It's a light finish, but it leaves my skin looking and feeling like velvety porcelain. It doesn't provide the same lively pop as other skincare products, but it provides a beautifully clear surface to let make-up do its thing. And the slightly sweet Mimosa smell doesn't hurt either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Oily Skin I have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin and the moisturizer i used by another company was discontinued. In my quest for a replacement i have tried every over the counter and some department store varieties with no success. Most caused irritation, breakouts, and made my oily skin even worse. Last ditch effort I went to the local Origins store after reading about this moisurizer online. I have now been using it over a month and am absolutely pleased. I have had no reactions, no increase in irritation, AND it does not make my already oily skin oiler. I have noticed that my skin feels smoother and I have not had any breakouts that I would attribute to this product. In fact I would say that my skin is calming down a great deal since using this. It is so difficult to find a moisurizer that provides the right amount of moisure without aggravating my skin and causing more breakouts. To top it off I am in my late 30's and my skin is showing a few fine lines here and there - I never thought I could find a product that helped the signs of aging that also worked for all my other numerous skin issues. The scent is wonderful and absorbs instantly into my skin. If you have sensitive, oily, acne prone, aging skin give this product a try - you will not be disappointed July 25, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Made A Difference! I have tried a million things. This moisturizer has really improved my complexion. I am 42 and have combo skin and get wrinkles and break outs. Since using this (jar almost gone), I don't think I have broken out once. And, my skin is glowing - lines diminished. I have finally found the right moisturizer for me!!! Thank you!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply THE BEST I've been using this moisturizer since it was first introduced and I will never steer away from it. I've tried A Perfect World, Youthtopia and Plantscription moisturizers as well (out of curiosity), but Starting Over is absolutely the only product that is successfully moisturizes while being light enough so it doesn't clog my pores and allows my skin to breath. The other products - A Perfect World, Plantsciption, Youthtopia- I've tried (and believe me, I gave them a fair shot of a month-long trial) have always led to breakouts and they feel like they suffocate my skin day-to-day compared to Starting Over. So, if you're like me and want a balance between hydrating yet light, Starting Over is the PERFECT moisturizer. November 2, 2014
