Any time you get a cut or a scrape, your body's natural wound-healing process kicks into high gear. It stimulates cellular regeneration to create fresh, healthy cells, which explains why the "new" skin that appears looks firmer and smoother (read: younger) compared to everything else around it. Thanks to the discovery of a molecule called "defensins" back in 2014, regenerative medicine doctors found a way to bottle up this process to deliver the same sort of fresh, baby-soft skin without any actual wound required. Their research led to a visionary new strategy for anti-aging and the eventual creation of DefenAge, an award-winning skin-care line known for its transformational results.

I've been a fan of DefenAge's facial skin-care products for some time, so when I heard the brand was adding a hand and body cream to its lineup, I was eager to give it a try.

The 10 Luxe Hand & Body Cream ($251) marks the first time that DefenAge's hallmark technology has been used in a product designed to be applied from the neck down. What's unique about defensins is that instead of simply repairing damaged skin cells, the way most anti-aging ingredients do, they help your body create new ones—just like it does when it gets hurt.

Every time a scratch or wound on the skin is healed, the skin in the healed wound area is always younger than the skin around it.,” says Natalie M. Curcio, MD, MPH, a dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon based in Nashville. “This is because our body activates preserved, or dormant, cells to heal wounds— in other words, the body created new young skin to heal wounds. Defensins activate the same mechanism in our body, meaning that every time defensins are applied on the skin they activate the body to produce new and young skin without the wound.”
