Everyone wants beautiful, blemish-free skin without any obvious signs of aging, like fine lines or wrinkles. Unfortunately, the natural aging process makes this goal difficult to reach with drug store brands and even the most dedicated at-home regimen. For that reason, many of us turn to aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers or Botox to rejuvenate our appearance. But at Viva Wellness Atlanta in Marietta, GA, we know that the right collection of skin care products from trusted brands can restore your skin and enhance your appearance.
What Is Good Skin Care?
What does it mean to have good skin care? When we talk about caring for the skin, we are generally referring to the process and the products used on the skin daily to cleanse, moisturize, and treat the skin. A good routine is an essential component to preventing future signs of aging and treating any current skin concerns at the same time.
In general, your regular routine should consist of three basic steps – cleansing twice a day, moisturizing morning and night, and applying sunscreen during the day. From here, many people like to pump up their routine with additional steps, such as the Korean 10-step routine, a shortened 6-step routine, or even double cleansing for total make-up removal. But beyond the process, the products being used are also important.
Why Good Products Matter
It may be tempting to curate your beauty routine with only drug store brands. After all, these brands are inexpensive and readily available. They should be good, right? The truth is that while many drug store products are middle-of-the-road adequate, they really won’t make a huge difference in the appearance or health of your skin down the line. To be frank, over-the-counter products don’t have high enough concentrations of powerful anti-aging ingredients to be effective.
This is why investing in quality skincare products is so important. Products that you can only buy through dermatologist recommendations are made at strengths that will make a difference for the tone, texture, and appearance of your skin. Two of our favorite product lines include Skinceuticals and Eminence Organic.
Skinceuticals enjoys a long-standing reputation for producing high-quality skincare products backed by science. From correcting age-related concerns to protecting the skin and preventing future damage, Skinceuticals has a wide variety of skincare products to help your skin look and feel totally renewed. Some best sellers include:
C E Ferulic Acid
This is a potent Vitamin C serum that improves the appearance of fine lines, skin laxity, and dull skin complexion while also protecting your skin from free radical damage. This formula is scientifically proven to reduce oxidative damage from UV rays, ozone, and diesel exhaust by up to 41%. This is a perfect daily serum for all skin types.
Triple Lipid Restore
An essential part of skin health is having a strong moisture barrier, but with aging comes fewer lipids in the skin that will keep the skin moist and supple. This anti-aging cream is full of dense fatty hydration to restore cellular lipids and nourish dry skin. The formula contains 2% pure ceramides, 4% cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids – and is an ideal addition to your daily moisturizing needs.
Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier
Hyaluronic acid is an incredibly popular active skin ingredient, particularly for those who have dry skin or who are battling signs of aging. This HA intensifier amplifies the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin to support the natural moisture of your skin, hydrate the skin surface, and improve fine lines, firmness, and smoothness.
The mission of Eminence Organic is to enhance the health of your skin through extraordinary natural and organic products supported by scientific research. These organic products are extremely friendly to those who have sensitive skin. One of the primary goals of this brand is to promote consistent skincare for the face and body so your skin can stay healthy and look radiant. This brand has an exceptional range of products, from cleansers, moisturizers, and exfoliants, to serums, sun care, lip care, and targeted care. Some of Eminence Organic’s best products include:
Stone Crop Gel Wash
This twice-daily cleanser is ideal for sensitive skin. The main ingredients include stone crop for hydrating and correcting uneven tone, chamomile for calming the skin, and shea butter for restoring the skin. This cleanser reduces the appearance of dull, dry skin cells and evens out the complexion.
Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer
This gentle moisturizer is made from stone crop, a natural succulent that is used to heal the skin and reduce the appearance of irritation while also clarifying the skin. This daily moisturizer also contains lemon for Vitamin C and BioComplex, an antioxidant booster to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant
Every good skincare routine includes exfoliating dead skin cells so your skin can look radiant. This dermafoliant is made with rice powder to absorb oil, while natural lactic and salicylic acids reduce dead skin cells, and antioxidants found in strawberries fight cellular damage.
Which Brand Is Best for You?
Picking a line of skincare products that are right for you will depend on a variety of factors, such as your preferred level of maintenance, your skin type, and the goals you have for your skin health and appearance. If you’re looking for a line of products to enhance the overall health of your skin to improve tone, strength, and resilience, then Eminence Organic may be right for you. If you want to pursue a more comprehensive skincare routine to focus on anti-aging needs, then Skinceuticals may be a better choice.
Ultimately, we will be able to help you determine which products are ideal for your skin needs and goals. A licensed esthetician will be able to examine your skin condition and ask questions about your regular skincare that will help identify the products and active ingredients that will be best to restore and protect your skin.
