Our Senior Aestheticians Top 5 Skincare Products
So, it’s that time of year again, when the harsh extremities of the cold weather and dry air from central heating has taken a toll on our skin’s complexion. Most, if not all of us are probably suffering with dull, dry skin and are concerned about the effects the ageing process is having. It’s time to get ourselves back looking rejuvenated and radiant for the summer months. Although Dermapen and Glycolic Peel treatments will supply you with excellent results in this regard, you can also help yourself at home by introducing new products into your skincare regime, and don’t forget to wear your SPF no matter what the weather is.
Here are my top 5 recommended products:
1) Dermaceutic Activ Retinol
Our best seller here at Faceworks. Available in 2 strengths, Retinol, a derivative of Retin-A, repairs and protects dry damaged skin, promoting cell renewal and collagen production. Proven to show superior results when used for anti-ageing effects. Suitable for use from mid-twenties upwards, this serum contains a unique combinations of high performance vitamins and anti-oxidants, that reduce the signs of skin aging, making the skin appear rejuvenated and radiant. Activ Retinol is recommended to treat loss of skin tone, wrinkles, fine lines and dull complexions. Use nightly, starting on the lower strength formula and introduce gradually. €52.95 - €58.00
2) Dermaceutic Foamer 15
My personal favourite. If you haven’t already starting using glycolic acid or AHA products in your routine, this product is the perfect way to introduce them. Foamer 15 is a facial wash that contains 15% glycolic acid, a natural compound derived from sugar cane, which is actually quite gentle to use on our skin. It accelerates the skins exfoliation by destroying the bonds of thickened dead cells on the surface of the skin. This enables an even exfoliation of the upper layers of the skin, revealing healthier, hydrated skin. This expert double action foam removes impurities and dead skin cells, purifying the skin, while also soothing the skin, improving its texture, restoring radiance and tightening pores. Paraben and fragrance free, it should be used once to twice daily after make-up removal on the face and neck, avoiding eye and lip areas and left to work for 60 seconds. Follow with SPF an moisturiser. €42.95
3) NeoStrata Triple Firming Neck Cream
Our necks, probably one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to our skin care routines, but it is also one of the first areas to show the effects of the ageing process. This amazing cream contains state of the art ingredients like Apple Stem Cell extracts to encourage preservation of our skin cells, and NeoGlucosamine which helps reduce discolouration & pigmentation from sun damage. Clinically proven to improve skin laxity and crepiness within 8 weeks. Triple Firming Neck Cream helps lift and firm sagging skin & reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Use twice daily after cleansing and before SPF. €39.95
4) Dermaceutic C25 Anti-Oxidant Day Cream
This superior anti-oxidant day cream is packed full of antioxidants which contribute to preventing damage from free radicals. Containing 25% stabilized Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and Polyphenols, this super cream combats oxidative stress and protects the skin from premature ageing. Resulting in a harmonised complexion that is glowing with natural radiance. Apply daily to face & neck, after cleansing and before application of appropriate SPF. €52.95
5) NeoStrata Facial Cleanser
We love this gentle gel cleanser at Faceworks. It has a 4% poly-hydroxy acid (PHA) content, exclusive to NeoStrata, which gently exfoliates and repairs the skin by stimulating cell renewal.
