What Skin Products Should I Be Using?

Cosmetics are products that you can purchase over the counter at pharmacies or a local big chain store, as they have minimal active ingredients to actually address the concerns you are having with your skin. Cosmetics are made to smell great as they are loaded with fragrance and colour, but will have minimal affect on your skin

Cosmeceuticals are a breed of skin care products that are a hybrid between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. They provide therapeutic skin benefits beyond cosmetics. They actually affect the way the skin cells work, like reducing pigmentation and wrinkles. They penetrate the skin as they have smaller molecular structures and have skin penetrator enhancers. They have biological active ingredients- that’s why they work so well!

Scientists have engineered a way to manipulate active ingredients, peptides and antioxidants that have the ability to retain and regain normal skin function and cell optimisation. Along with biomimetic (bio meaning life, and mimetic to imitate) bases and peptides that encapsulate active ingredients which are delivered straight to your individual cells!

What Are Cosmeceuticals?

Cosmeceuticals ARE medicine for your skin!  

Cosmeceuticals have been developed to combat a variety of skin health concerns, including ageing, acne, pigmentation, and rosacea.

Ideally you should have a comprehensive skin analysis done by a knowledgeable professional so you get the best products for your skin. Having healthy skin is achievable and more affordable than you may think using the best skincare products at home.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
