Here at the Eden Institute we truly believe the secret to beautiful, healthy looking skin is cosmeceutical-grade skincare. We all know that everyone is concerned with their wrinkles, fine lines and volume loss, although we believe that the ultimate goal will always be clear skin. Regardless of any wrinkles or lines you may be worried about, a clear and radiant complexion will leave you looking fresh, healthy and revitalised.
You may be wondering what the difference is and whether or not it’s actually worth it. Basically, cosmeceutical-grade skincare is an upgrade from over the counter products. Cosmeceutical products, unlike those sold over the counter, are individually prescribed, have different formulations, may be stronger, have lower marketing expenses and so can use more of your money for actual ingredient of higher quality. This means that our products have the ability to not only help and improve the appearance of your skin, but can also stimulate and change cells at a deeper level. Hence, unlike over the counter skincare products, they have the ability to act on the skin’s cellular structure and can infiltrate deeper into the layers of the skin where they can either enhance or inhibit natural activities. These products have scientific research behind them, and the products we use at Eden, are available through medical practices with trained prescribers.
Very often we see clients using the correct products for their skin in the wrong amounts or the wrong combinations leaving them with unsatisfactory results. When choosing your skincare, it is vital to choose the right combination of ingredients for you, as everyone’s skin is different. These ingredients may include antioxidants, exfoliates and skin tightening.
Antioxidants have been seen to reduce free radical damage and inflammation and also can aid in counteracting cellular damage and collagen destruction.
Vitamin A has the ability to interact with the skin cells to function at the optimal level. It can also increase the turnover of cells and stimulates the thickening of the epidermis which can also help with plumping the skin while also removing unwanted pigmentation.
Peptides aid in the production of collagen and exfoliants help to shed dead cells on the surface level, allowing healthy and younger skin to be visible.
It’s time to forget about what works for your friends, this is about YOU and your skin is unlike anybody else’s. We are all at different stages in our lives and the ageing process and our skincare regime needs to reflect that in order to maintain the best results possible.
Another important fact to understand is that cosmeceutical-grade skincare products will complement any treatments you already have at home and in many cases will actually extend the life of the treatments.
