The importance of a good skin care routine

We get a lot of people ask “what’s the best thing I can do for my skin”? The first thing I say is HydroPeptide, and the next is routine!
Routine really is key, even the best skin care products are not going to work if you don’t apply them regularly, so here are some tips for the essentials:
Cleanse morning and evening. I know this is a pain when you get home late at night, but trust me it’s a better look to wake up fresh faced than panda eyed!
Soap and water is the worst thing to cleanse with as this will strip the skin of all it’s natural oils, drying the skin. The second worst is makeup wipes…throw them out! If you leave your makeup on overnight your depriving your skin of oxygen, and giving your pores the chance to become clogged leading to breakouts!

Invest in a decent exfoliator and use 1-2 times a week! A good exfoliator will thoroughly cleanse the skin, remove dead skin cells and contain AHA’s to give your pores a deep down clean that will help eliminate congestion, brightening the skin, and allowing your serum and cream to properly get to work where the skin needs it most.

Use a skin serum and cream specific to your skin type! These should be used morning and evening without fail. During the day your cream helps to protect the skin against pollutants and keep it hydrated while at night your skin repairs itself and needs the hydration!
An SPF is a must have! The suns rays (UVA) age your skin and can cause pigmentation. These should be applied every day, summer and winter, even if you work indoors, as UVA can penetrate through glass!

A specialist eye cream is essential as the skin around the eye is finer. Using a normal cream can ultimately lead to bags under the eye as the cream is too dense and heavy.

This is the first step in clear, glowing skin…check out our website www.ellipse.je for our fabulous skin care range HydroPeptide!

Why Use HydroPeptide?

In order for the skin to look youthful it requires Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic acid. All three are contained within the skin in high levels when we are children, but gradually decline as we age.

There are over 28 different types of collagen contained within the skin. When you buy skin care creams that state they contain collagen, they usually do not contain all of the types they require to actually work.

HydroPeptide is different. HydroPeptide contains Petides which are short chains of amino acids or “messenger molecules”. They act as cellular communicators to stimulate the skin to produce more of it’s own collagen and elastin! This means that you get more of all of the types of collagen your skin needs!

Did you know that your usual run of the mill cream can’t actually penetrate deeply enough to the lower levels of the skin to work? Only a cream that has been micronized can do this. Our peptides have been micronized, and attached to fatty acids, liposomes or carrier peptides so that they are compatible with the skin and enhance penetration.

Upwards of 60% of skin care is absorbed through the pores, This means that unless you use an exfoliator with alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) in to deeply cleanse the pores, any skin cream you use will just sit on the skins surface. HydroPeptide use AHA’s in all it’s cleansers and toners, so your skin is already for your serum and cream!

Some skin creams may leave your skin feeling soft, but this can sometimes just be superficial, and is the result of mineral oil. Mineral oil gives creams their slip and slide, but with prolonged use can block the pores as it is a cheap by product of petroleum, and this lessens the effect of the cream!

HydroPeptide contains triple weight hyaluronic acid which acts as a dermal filler while also penetrating to the deeper layers of the skin to plump cells and optimally hydrate your skin. This smoothes lines and wrinkles and stimulates the production of elastic from within!


The Importance of Exfoliating

Exfoliating is one of the most importance steps in your skin care routine, and yet so many people don’t do it! There are so many options out there, from exfoliating cleansers, to exfoliating pads and brushes, it’s easy to find some kind of exfoliation that can fit easily into your daily or weekly habits!

Why is exfoliating so important? Well a good exfoliator will help to not only remove the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, but also any congestion that builds up in the pores, they do this through the use of AHA’s (key word to look out for when shopping for an exfoliator, and stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acids). AHA’s are often either fruit acids or enzymes and lactic acid, and help to decongest the pores, evenly exfoliate the skin (leaving you with a more even skin tone), help to prevent blemishes and overall brighten the skin.

Remember exfoliators that are just abrasive and use exfoliating “beads” or “shell” are only working on the surface of the skin!

Exfoliation should be performed 1-2 times a week depending on your skin type, and remember if using a products with AHA’s an SPF is a must! For two great choices in exfoliator, try HydroPeptide daily exfoliating cleanser or HydroPeptide Anti-ageing Polish Plump and Peel, only available at Ellipse!
