I’m obsessed with skincare, and one of my favorite lines is SkinCeuticals. I was thrilled to be invited to a luncheon hosted by SkinCeuticals, where we got to learn more about their clinical research on Atmospheric Skin Aging, which was published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.
It’s no secret why SkinCeuticals is so popular with dermatologists, doctors and aestheticians everywhere – they stand out in a sea of skincare brands because their science is solid. Every single one of their products reflects the research, science and technology they have mastered. SkinCeuticals has been researching atmospheric aggressors for over 30 years, and the aging associated with it, Atmospheric Skin Aging, is caused by basically everything around us – UVA/UVB rays, infrared radiation (IR), visible light (even your kitchen lights!), air pollution, ozone pollution, particulate matter, and cigarette smoke!! Ahhhh! So what does this really mean for our skin!? All of these aggressors cause cellular damage which triggers contributes to skin again! Nobody wants that!
Through years of research, SkinCeuticals discovered that certain combinations of antioxidants perform better together and brings about better results then they do individually. Their antioxidants neutralize the free radicals induced by ozone pollution exposure to help reduce all this damage that has been caused by the exposure to ozone pollution! One of my favorites and one of their most popular products C E Ferulic, which is a revolutionary antioxidant combination that give you 8 times the protection that your skin has naturally. It’s a breakthrough antioxidant that is a combination of L-ascorbic acid and alpha tocopherol, combined with ferulic acid, which doubles the performance and protects against UV rays, free radicals, and cellular damage that causes premature skin aging! Research has shown a 96% reduction of sunburn cells in TV irradiated skin!
My skin is super dry, super sensitive, and is prone to hyperpigmentation, so this product is a miracle worker. After just using the product for two weeks, I’ve seen such an improvement in the tone and texture of my skin!! I love trying new products, but when I find one that works, I keep it in rotation, and this one is going to stay in my routine. It’s perfect for all skin types and also improves the appearance of wrinkles of loss of firmness!
If your skin is more oily/combination, then Phloretin CF is perfect for you! It’s formulated with l-ascorbic acid and ferulic acid, as well as phloretin, which helps improve cell turnovers neutralizes damaging free radicals, which will improve the overall appearance of your skin and help with discoloration, without being overly nourishing for already oily skin.
Another one of my favorites is the H.A. Intensifier!!!! If you have dry skin like me, this is the perfect product for you. Hyaluronic acid is a super important to maintaining your skin’s natural biomechanical properties, and it helps regulate moisture levels in kin. This product helps to renew plumpness, elasticity, and firmness. The appearance of crows feet, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines are reduced and it even refines your skin’s complexion!
The most important step in my skincare routine is to WEAR SPF!!!!!! It is so important especially when you are out in the sun, but a lot of people don’t realize that even if you spend most of your time indoors, you still need it! I absolutely love SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50!! This product is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen that is formulated with oil-absorbing aerated silica technology which leaves a smooth and mattified finish with the broad spectrum UV protection you need! No one ever wants to look oily, so this product is perfect, especially for those hot and humid days!
I am so grateful to have been a part of this super informative luncheon with SkinCeuticals, and can’t wait to add more of their amazing products to my skincare routine now that I know I have to protect my skin against Atmospheric Skin Aging! Cheers to beautiful and protected skin! XOXO
