Skincare has been big in recent years, and with good reason! The importance of looking after your skin has had a lot of emphasis placed on it resulting in hundreds if not thousands of new products and trends to pop up across the world.
Let us tell you what skincare trends are worth the hype.
Ingestible beauty is swarming social media feeds along with health, beauty and lifestyle magazines over the last few months. We place so much emphasis on applying products to the skin to treat our concerns, this goes hand in hand with what we put into our bodies.
As we age our Skin's ability to produce collagen naturally decreases as we age which is seen with more wrinkled skin, deeper wrinkles, loss of skin firmness and sagging skin. But other environmental factors (such as exposure to pollution, blue light from our computers, infrared as heat from the sun) also accelerates the depletion of collagen.
Unlike topical products, the Collagen peptides found in ingestible products are highly digestible, allowing for maximum benefit through quick absorption by the body.
The concept of creating health on the inside to achieve results that radiate externally is one that we here at Skin Physics can get behind, after all, beauty begins from within. We recommend a healthy and balanced lifestyle to help achieve your best skin ever, this is why we've created a delicious and effective Collagen Beauty Elixir to target your skin from the inside - out.
Formulated with 100% Naturally-sourced ingredients, Collagen Beauty Elixir harnesses the scientifically proven benefits of Collagen Bio-Peptides to support your skin's natural production of collagen and elastin and counteract premature signs of ageing.
The newer of the skincare trends, serums have taken over the skincare market. These potent skin treatments really pack a punch and are a great way to treat specific skin issues.
Serums are extremely concentrated and deliver potent active ingredients into the skin, which are quickly absorbed and offer a more efficient and effective dose of ingredients to address an array of skin concerns.
As serums are low viscosity free-flowing liquids, they spread easily across the entire skin surface penetrating into the minute folds, pores and skin imperfections, to deliver highly concentrated active ingredients on to and into the stratum corneum (outer layer of the skin). The benefit of this is that the active ingredients can get to work quicker than they would in a heavy cream or lotion that would otherwise remain on top of the skin surface and not absorb deeper.
Recently we have launched a range of serums specific to different age's and skin concerns.
Our Oxygen-C Vitamin C Brightening Serum contains 2.5% Vitamin C, 2% Niacinamide. This Antioxidant and Vitamin-rich brightening complex helps protect against UV-induced skin damage, visibly reduces the appearance of blemishes and improves skin tone for a fresh and radiant appearance.
Our Dragon's Blood Retinol Sleep Serum contains 2% Granactive Retinoid. This powerful combination helps to restore thickness to the skin visibly reducing the appearance of fines lines & wrinkles, evens out skin tone; reducing the appearance of pigmentation and age spots, and improves skin texture.
Our Advance SUPERLIFT Lifting & Firming Complex contains 2% Biomimetic Peptide + 3% Encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid. This advanced anti-ageing complex works to restore skin firmness & elasticity, improving the appearance of deeper wrinkles and sagging contours for a complete V-shape recovery.
We've had our say when it comes to nasty, abrasive physical, beaded exfoliants. These do much more harm than good when it comes to skin. Exfoliators with microbeads can often do more harm than good to your skin. The small and tough balls rub against your face and don't break down, this causes them to create small tears on the skin resulting in aggravation and damage.
This is why we recommend using a chemical exfoliant (it sounds scarier than it is) chemical exfoliants are the gentler of exfoliants and are most likely in a lot of the good quality skin care products you know and love. They help to remove excess dirt and grime built up overtime in the skin, minimise pores, reduce fine lines and wrinkles while fighting acne.
Our Oxygen-C Brightening Sleep Mask is a great product to introduce you to chemical exfoliation. This beauty Gently exfoliates to promote skin renewal. Antioxidant & mineral-rich formula improves skin tone and re-energises skin for a smooth, bright and revitalised appearance. Featuring activated Pomegranate fruit enzymes work to gently exfoliate dull, dead cells to reveal resurfaced, refined, and radiant skin.
