Skin care regimen yields fast, long-lasting results
Most people are concerned with the health and appearance of their skin. While makeup can conceal some imperfections, it cannot reverse the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So what's the key to vibrant, healthy skin? A three-step skin care routine: prime, treat and accelerate. Prime your skin by cleansing and exfoliating, treat your primary skin care problem and accelerate positive results by selecting products that target troubled areas fast.
A daily skin care regimen is one of the best ways to achieve glowing skin and offset premature aging. If you get in the habit of performing these three steps daily, you can prevent and treat imperfections such as dryness, oil build up and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Understanding the composition of your skin is essential in learning how to care and treat it. The skin is comprised of three layers: epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The epidermis is considered the most important layer of skin and the source where blemishes and dryness first becomes apparent. The dermis makes up the thickness of the skin and contains collagen and elastin fibers that give it its firmness and elasticity. The hypodermis, otherwise known as the fat layer, tends to shrink with age causing uneven skin tone, wrinkling and sagging. To preserve the health of your skin, it's important to select products that are specifically formulated to target the various layers. These products are referred to as cosmeceuticals.
What are cosmeceuticals?
Cosmeceuticals represent the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and typically include products such as moisturizers, anti-aging creams and serums. Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients designed to enhance the appearance of the skin and produce a positive, physiological effect at the cellular level. Dermatological research suggests that the bioactive ingredients used in cosmeceuticals have benefits beyond the traditional moisturizer.
