Of all the areas in the world of anti-aging, nothing is as buzzed about and discussed as our skin. Our skin changes noticeably as we get older (another thing to add to the list). We start seeing differences in tone and texture, and we start noticing things like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and of course, the dreaded jowl.
We also start to require more from the treatments, active ingredients and even the grade of products we use as part of our skincare regimen. From cutting edge K-Beauty products, to powerful technologies and treatments, glowing and healthy skin is within reach. If we focus on cell turnover and renewal, we’ll get the best results!
What are the greatest issues women over 40 are facing with their skin? What is the number one anti-aging ingredient? What treatments should you be asking your esthetician for?
In this episode, I’m joined by the owner of Captulina Skincare and Le Fantasme, and my personal esthetician, Captulina Batausa. She gives the inside scoop on the products and ingredients we need to be using after 40. She also shares her perfect skincare regimen, and the next level at-home treatments that bring a bit of the spa into our lives!
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
The 3 levels of skincare products and ingredients
Cosmetic level skincare products are regulated and used only to treat the surface of the skin. Cosmeceutical skincare products are a blend of cosmetic and pharmaceutical (which is what your esthetician uses and sells). Pharmaceuticals are what you’d get from a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Why cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical skincare products are necessary
The grade of product you need will change according to your concerns and your age. Cosmetic-grade products might not work because you need something more corrective with a higher percentage of active ingredients that are going to penetrate deeper into the skin and work harder.
Why toning is critical to our skincare regimen
Tone your skin to bring the pH levels back to normal. Our serums, face cream and eye cream are all formulated at a particular pH so it has to be compatible with the skin to get proper absorption so that it actually works.
