What determines if you get real, visible results with topical skincare? We call it the big three:
- Potency. The amount of bio-available active ingredients in the formula you are using matters. You not only need the right actives in name, you need a formula that keeps the actives stable and able to deliver those actives to your skin. The hormonal changes that naturally occur with aging change your skin. You need formulas that address the skin you are in today.
- Application The order of use, the amount you use, and when you use the products also matter. Sunscreen is a top example. Most people do not apply enough and do not reapply during the day. The level of SPF is too often the only thing people focus on.
- Consistency of use. We all want instant results, but the reality is, great skin comes with continued use and maintains with consistent use. Your daily at-home facial routine will give you a gorgeous glow, but you need to stick to it to keep it.
