What’s in my Skincare Regime?

Ever wondered what you are putting on your skin? Sometimes it feels like you need a science degree to understand what is in your products – and what they do? Rejuve-Skin investigates the products we use in our everyday skin ritual.

If you are an avid skincare perfectionist, you’ll know the difference between supermarket brands of skincare and those specially designed and commonly found in top-end beauty salons and clinics. But even the best of us can be compromised by the marketing ploys and cheaper alternatives that are commonly found on our supermarket shelves.

But what is the exact difference? Cosmeceuticals! These provide a true and tested form of skincare. They are like pharmaceutical products and offer the very best concentrates to give real results. Even though many over-the-counter products will have the same types of ingredients, many will not contain the correct concentrations to provide any anti-aging benefits – hence the reason they are much cheaper.

Similar to high-end multivitamins and products only available from registered naturopaths and health care providers, Cosmeceuticals are only available for purchase from reputable clinics. These products are intensively researched and tested to provide the best possible anti-aging results.

Why should I buy only Cosmeceuticals?

They are very safe to use and have been vigorously tested for results. They are proven to provide effectiveness at a cellular level. Unlike many off-the-shelf brands, they have been shown to effectively work at improving the quality of your skin and turn back the hands of time.

What About Active Ingredients?

Some of the most popular include:

Antioxidants – Vitamins A, B, C, E, alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10), idebenone, polyphenols, and kinetin. These are known and proven to fight free radicals and reduce collagen breakdown.

Botanicals - Including curcumin, aloe vera, and silymarin. They help as a great anti-inflammatory and also assist with skin healing.

Peptides - Amino acids stimulate and control certain functions in the skin. They can help reduce fine lines and pigmentation while also assisting in the skin's texture and firmness.

Polyphenols - these are plant-derived antioxidants that have sun protection properties while also helping with inflammation.

Retinol – This is a high concentrate of vitamin A is a high-end antioxidant. It has great anti-aging properties while also assisting with pigmentation and acne. As well as its benefits against photodamage and acne. The tretinoin can also help with collagen production and the reduction of fine lines.

Vitamin B - Vitamin B helps stimulate collagen and boost the overall health and brightness of the skin. It provides benefits to the texture of the skin while helping with pigmentation and fine lines.

Vitamin C: An essential antioxidant that helps produce collagen. Vitamin C can also help prevent damage from UV and also assist with its anti-inflammation properties.

If your daily skincare ritual contains good percentages of these ingredients, you will be using a good quality product. If your skincare doesn’t and is perhaps filled with many other chemicals and lower substitute ingredients, you will not get the benefits and results you are after.

With all skincare, it’s important to think about what you want. If it’s just daily moisturizing then many lower quality brands may give immediate relief, however will not allow long-lasting results. If it’s anti-aging or tackling problem areas such as sun damage or pigmentation, only cosmeceuticals products will work. Yes, they come at a higher price, but they are proven to work.
