We all know the importance of incorporating a great skincare routine.
Not only does it make our skin look and feel beautiful, but it strengthens the barrier our skin creates against infections.
But how well do we focus on the importance of using equally great products?
With an abundance of new skincare companies out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by great packaging and claims of revolutionary skincare.
How do we know that we are using products that strengthen our skin as opposed to weakening it?
We should aim to be committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity. Rather than taking into account whether something is synthetic or natural, we should instead choose ingredients based on biocompatibility.
It’s important to focus on healthy pH level, formulations that the skin recognises, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support and maintain the skin’s acid mantle.
But what you leave out of your products is just as important as what you put into them.
Certain ingredients (e.g. essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, SLS) contained within formulations can cause everything from swelling to redness to itchiness to outright allergic reaction.
For this reason, they’re better avoided altogether. When they’re removed entirely from your routine, your skin can reset and return to its healthiest, most balanced state.
The power of collagen in skincare
Lately, there has been an abundance of collagen products flooding the market.
Collagen is a protein that serves as one of the main building blocks for your bones, skin, hair, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, as well as triggering youthful looking skin, so it’s easy to see why there is so much hype surrounding it.
While there have been many advancements in creating synthetic collagen, nothing beats using products with naturally derived collagen. But not all organic collagen is created equal.
Animal-derived collagen, which has some inherent immunological risks, is the form of collagen most commonly used in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery today. However, marine collagen has been proven to not only be safer but much more powerful.
Bescher introduces the ocean’s best kept secret into its skincare products.
Using sea cucumber collagen extract, they contain a revolutionary mix of premium bioactive ingredients that turn back the clock on your skin and hit reset on even the most stressed-out skin. Their day and night pack make for the perfect products to use for your skincare routine.
The brand recommends first using their Konjac sponge with your favourite cleanser containing lactic acid (or you can wait for their highly-anticipated cleanser to be released later this month).
After cleansing, apply the Bescher Regeneration Serum by gently messaging into the skin and patting around the eye area.
Using only the highest medical-grade sea cucumber collagen extract, the serum works to improve skin tone, texture and elasticity, repair of cellular DNA in damaged skin cells, redness, inflammation to promote a clear complexion free of photodamage (pigmentation) and oily skin congestion.
To complete your skincare routine, follow with the Bescher Sea Cucumber Collagen Anti-Ageing Cream to boost your skin’s transformation and watch how it changes your morning and night-time routine for the better.
Your skin is important, and so too is having a great skincare routine supported by quality products.
