Stress, harmful UV rays from the sun, cold temperature, poor nutrition, cigarette smoking and fatigue are the most common factors which contribute to the signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, dryness and pigmentation. Albeit inevitable, it is still possible to reduce the rate of skin degradation and preserve its youthfulness through innovative cosmeceutical products.
Cosmeceutical products are topically applied, but they contain ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin and can aide in improving the appearance of skin by delivering nutrients necessary for healthy skin. These include, for example anti-aging creams and moisturizers containing active ingredients such as vitamins, phytochemicals, enzymes and antioxidants.
Some commonly used ingredients in biocosmetics:
- Alpha lipoic acid
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids
- Coenzyme Q 10
- Dimethylaminoethinol (DMAE)
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C Ester
- Vitamin E
The results are both short term and long term. Custom prepared cosmeceutical creams help provide a number of dermatological health benefits, including reduced skin irritation, rashes, redness and inflammation. They are also useful for soothing dry cracked skin, improving moisturization and treating blemishes and problem areas. Most importantly, they begin to protect your skin from the harmful external forces of aging.
At Accent Wellness we work closely with your physician and/or dermatologist to provide innovative solutions to anti-aging through our compounded bio-cosmetics preparations with the intention to protect, restore and rejuvenate your skin.
