Your skin is the largest organ in your body. Unfortunately, it is also the most neglected. People from all walks of life will take vitamins for their hair and liver, but not their skin! The organ that aids the most in providing a youthful appearance shouldn’t be cared for as an after-thought. I believe that people don’t care for their skin like they should because of the belief they have that you need 5 million products to get the job done. There are many terrible anti aging skin care products out there that claim to reverse aging that come in a package of ten, so I can relate to where the sentiment comes from. Still, proper anti aging skin care does not need to be complicated. If you wish there were an anti aging skin care product like that actually works and doesn’t require 10 different applications in the morning and night, consider the SkinCeuticals product line.
WHY SKINCEUTICALS FOR ANTI AGING SKIN CARE?
SkinCeuticals has been around for 12 years, and is completely science-backed. Unlike other skin care products that only target the topological areas of the skin, the SkinCeuticals solution aims to correct deep within the skin. Keep in mind that SkinCeuticals does NOT have a dramatic turn-around time for results. Products that put your skin in a state of flux are not recommended at my practice. Instead, SkinCeuticals paces its correction so that your skin is not damaged. Moreover, SkinCeuticals follows medical-grade formulation standards, and their products are exceptionally high quality. Extensive clinical testing ensures that the SkinCeuticals product line is safe and effective.
PREVENT, PROTECT, AND CORRECT
SkinCeuticals offers a full line of products. However, for patients starting their anti aging skin care journey, my practice recommends only 3 products. These 3 products are crucial to get the results that you need. Anything else is supplementary.
The UV radiation from the sun creates free radicals that penetrate and harm your skin. Usually, sunscreen is recommended to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. However, sunscreen alone cannot protect you from pollution, cigarette smoke, and other skin-damaging radicals. This is where SkinCeuticals’ antioxidants solution comes in.
Antioxidants protect against these radicals, and reverse skin aging. Antioxidants reverse skin damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. We use a Vitamin C solution to accomplish this. Learn more about the science of SkinCeuticals here.
After applying Vitamin C, we apply sunscreen. Sunscreen protects across the entire UV spectrum. Moreover, SkinCeuticals sunscreen is more potent than other solutions. Protect against the damaging sun rays with multiple sunscreen options. You only need one, but we offer many others for interested patients. While Vitamin C is your first layer of defense, sunscreen is your second.
Finally, correct skin damage. To do so, exfoliate your skin and clear out any environmental free radicals. While SkinCeuticals offers an exfoliating solution, we actually don’t recommend SkinCeuticals as an exfoliation solution. Instead, we believe that the Clarisonic will work better in your favor. It’s important to exfoliate before applying Vitamin C so that you have a clean base to add protection to.
All in all, the best anti aging skin care solution you need comes packaged as the above. As a step by step review, this is the best way to care for your skin:
- Exfoliate with the Clarisonic to give your skin a deep clean
- Prevent further skin damage with a Vitamin C solution
- Protect your skin from free radicals with sunscreen
With those three steps, you’ll be set on the best anti aging skin care program you’ll ever be in. If you’re interested in a customized skin care program, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our wonderful skin care team. We’ll make sure you’re well on your way to clearer, more youthful skin.
