The Science of Skin Care

In just the last year, precisely targeted skin care formulations and innovation of new, powerhouse ingredients have advanced by leaps and bounds. Insight into the factors involved in maintaining optimal skin health, including the skin microbiome, gut biome and environmental as well as genetic factors related to an individual’s skin health needs, has led to significant advances in skin care products and treatment regimens designed to fit every individual patient’s unique skin concerns. More than ever, skin care has entered its dermatological era, with the science of skin care taking center stage and bringing next generation products to the industry at an ever-growing rate. Centered around science-based compounds and clinically proven results, these skin care products are not playing around.

SKINCOMM AL-GLUTAS regenerates and re-energizes skin cells, repairing damage and defects at the cellular level, and addressing pigmentation, sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, fatigue and stress-related issues. It blends peptides that stimulate pro-collagen production, fatty acids that strengthen the skin, repair damaged lipid barriers, reduce water loss and increase hydration, and beneficial botanical extracts that lighten, brighten and even out skin tone. HA hydrates, minimizes fine lines and changes wrinkle depth as nano-hyaluronic acid penetrates deeper into the skin. SKINCOMM TriDefenx protects against UVB and UVA rays and reduces damage caused by heat, infrared rays and blue light. www.skincomm.com

This innovative formulation is bio-engineered with an 80:20 ratio of active ingredients to water that floods all layers of skin and creates an anti-dehydration shield, boosting skin hydration barrier function by 150% and increasing skin hydration by 72%. Lyma Skin’s epigenetic technology utilizes anti-inflammatory ingredients that support oxygen and nutrients in skin cells to boost elasticity and smooth the appearance of wrinkles, clear the way for new active cells and accelerate skin renewal even during oxidative stress to reveal fresher, youthful-looking skin and reduce wrinkle formation, as well as recreate the optimum microbiome environment of younger skin to reduce redness and restore firmness. www.lyma.life/us/skincare
