SkinCeuticals: the Best Investment Skincare
- Posted on: Jan 3 2017
Magazine editorials and beauty product shelves are filled with scientific-sounding buzzwords, but SkinCeuticals is the rare beauty brand that is actually based on real breakthroughs in the research lab. The brand was developed as a result of knowledge gained through decades of skin cancer research. One of the key discoveries? The importance of high potency antioxidants concentrated at optimal levels and proven to penetrate the skin for maximum results.
Not surprisingly given its science-backed lineage, this clinical skincare line is frequently used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons as part of recommended skin care regimen for patients to use at home. And no wonder — these products mean business when it comes to covering all the bases of an effective skin care routine. While products cover a range of skin types, the strategy remains the same: prevent, protect, and correct.
If you’re looking to prevent the appearance of accelerated skin aging, a daily topical antioxidant is critical. SkinCeuticals’ range of antioxidant serums are probably the brand’s most celebrated and well-known products. Devotees swear by the effectiveness of its Vitamin C serums to prevent age-accelerating free radicals generated by UV rays, pollution, cigarette smoke and alcohol. The standout product here is the C E Ferulic serum which features a synergistic antioxidant combination of a high 15% concentration of pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), 1% vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), and 0.5% ferulic acid. These work together to enhance protection against environmental damage. Not only that, the powerhouse serum also improves signs of aging and photodamage and the appearance of lines while firming and brightening the complexion.
Of course the most central aspect of skin protection is halting photodamage created by the sun, the number one cause of premature skin aging. Because SkinCeuticals was developed as part of in-depth research into skin cancer, a full range of broad spectrum sunscreens designed for different skin types and concerns form a core aspect of the product range. Their Sheer Physical UV Defense sunscreen is a broad spectrum protector for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Using 100% physical filters Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide it is formulated with a plankton extract to help boost skin’s natural defenses. This makes it an ideal everyday sunscreen for the face.
Only the most potent skincare products with powerful ingredients and advanced technologies can actually correct already existing skin damage. A SkinCeuticals bestseller is the Retexturing Activator, a resurfacing serum that also helps reinforce the skin’s barrier for healthier, more radiant skin. The patented technology optimizes the skin’s amino acid supply in order to reinforce the external barrier and contains the resurfacing power of daily 20% glycolic acid treatment.
Your dermatologist can help you design a customized SkinCeuticals skincare regimen based on these three principles of prevention, protection and correction for optimal skin health and radiance.
