Skin Care Ingredients That Really Work!

Updated: Nov 20, 2019


Even for seasoned skin care shoppers finding the right products can be overwhelming. With promises of clearer, brighter, firmer skin in shiny packaging and an ingredient list that are often confusing due to the scientific terms used. Let's help you look past the alluring marketing promises and images and go straight for the skin care ingredients most recommended by dermatologists.



Vitamin C


The antioxidant properties of vitamin C help fight against environmental pollutants and damage caused by UV radiation. It also lightens dark spots and plays a vital role in collagen synthesis. With the use of Vitamin C in the mornings your skin will appear younger, firmer, brighter and more even in tone.



We recommend Rejudicare 2CRM+

Skin Balancing Anti-Wrinkle Serum with Vitamins C, E and Peptides





Hyaluronic Acid (HA)


Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant which means that it draws moisture into the skin and holds on to it. This molecule which is found naturally in our skin holds a thousand times its weight in water. It not only retains all that moisture in our skin, but also prevents all that moisture from evaporating into the air. If it's in our skin why is it important to apply topically you may ask.... well, just like collagen and elastin, the amount of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases with age. Adding this to your skin care regimen will keep your skin hydrated and plump.



We recommend iS Clinical Hydra-Cool Serum

Formulated to rejuvenate, hydrate, and visibly soothe the skin. This refreshing, powerful, penetrating serum combines superior antioxidants with essential botanicals and bio-nutrients.




Retinol


Considerably one of the best anti-aging ingredients and the reason is because it stimulates collagen production. As we get older our collagen production slows, leavings us with less elasticity and formation of wrinkles. Retinol increases cell turnover which removes dead skin cells, making pores appear smaller. Also the use of retinol on oily skin will help regulate the skin for a beautiful, more clearer complexion.



We recommend Rejudicare SRX

Lightweight, fast absorbing with hydrating properties




Glycolic Acid


Glycolic Acid is derived from sugar cane and is part of the AHA family (Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid). Glycolic acid is an amazing exfoliant. It effectively removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and reveals a smoother complexion. When found in moisturizers it can actually replenishing any lost moisture.



We recommend iS Clinical Youth Complex

YOUTH COMPLEX provides rapid initial hydration for visible “plumping” of fine lines and wrinkles, promotes controlled exfoliation, and is clinically proven to support the foundation of healthy skin.
