This week's product highlight features the SkinMedica Everyday Essentials System which provides the four fundamentals required of any effective skincare regimen.
It's not just any product that gets recommended by Kim Kardashian's official aesthetician, Melissa Haloossim, who endorses the SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator for its ability to replenish your skin's hyaluronic acid for overall skin health - so it might be worth looking into just what makes this product and the related SkinMedica Everyday Essentials System a favorite for celebrity skincare gurus, dermatologists and every-day skin enthusiasts alike!
The HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator is only one of the four products featured in SkinMedica's Everyday Essentials System with the complete set providing an intuitive, easy-to-use yet totally comprehensive solution for any patient in need of an effective skin care regimen. The system can be used all on its own or complemented with other SkinMedica products. Below we'll be taking a look at the system as a whole before breaking it down into each constituent product involved, focusing on what it can do to promote healthy and more youthful-looking skin for you.
SkinMedica's Everyday Essentials System At A Glance
The SkinMedica Everyday Essentials System combines the potency of various different products to promote one goal: healthier, younger-looking skin. The four principles of the system include: rejuvenating skin via deep deep hydration; regenerating skin cells to accomplish a smooth and youthful complexion; night-time age-defense; and advanced broad-spectrum sun screen protection suitable for all skin types. With the SPF 35 Sunscreen as the only exception, the products in this system are meant to be used daily with the specific frequency and time-of-day suitability (morning vs night) varying with each product.
The 4 Essential Steps
The TNS Essential Serum features two active formulas, the TNS Recovery Complex and APS Corrective Complex, which work to rejuvenate the skin cells for a younger and healthier appearance. The TNS Recover complex, rated by Reader's Digest as one of the 16 anti-aging products dermatologists trust the most, contains the highest concentration - up to 93.6% - of TNS of any product out there, an ingredient that uses potent growth factors, soluble collagens, antioxidants and essential proteins to enhance skin tone, reduce inflammation and remove signs of aging. The APS Corrective Complex meanwhile aids in strengthening sagging skin and fighting off discoloration, whether it's age spots or hyperpigmentation, to help you achieve a smoother skin complexion. It's recommended this product be applied twice a day, morning and evening for optimal results.
The HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, meanwhile, is not only popular among the Kardashians but it's a favorite of top dermatologists everywhere. This moisturizing facial serum contains five different types of hydrators, including hyaluronic acid, to provide you with deep long-lasting hydration. As recommended, Melissa Haloossim uses it twice a day, once in the morning and evening, which works best to keep your skin moisturized.
Best used at night, the Retinol Complex 0.25 is a non-irritant that promotes new healthy skin growth to enhance skin tone, diminish signs of aging, and achieve a brighter, younger looking skin complexion. Time release technology allows the retinol to penetrate the deep layers of the skin gradually to allow for an effective yet unabrasive refining of skin texture. If you're new to retinol however, it's recommended you take some time to adjust to the formula - start off applying it 2 nights a week before you transition to daily evening use.
To wrap it up, the SkinMedica Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35 sunscreen offers effective guard for skin of all types against harmful UVA/UVB sunrays. The sunscreen harnesses the power of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to protect even the most sensitive of skin types. No need to use the SPF 35 daily, unless you're subject to serious day-to-day sun exposure; apply 15 minutes before you're off to the beach family outing and enjoy the highest level of sun protection available.
SkinMedica's Everyday Essentials System provides just what it promises: a stand-alone set of fundamental anti-aging and skin protection products to use on a day-to-day basis, making use of a host of clinically proven ingredients including retinoids, antioxidants, growth factors and sun protection. It's no secret why it's making the rounds among top dermatologists; it's an all-in-one system that works!
