Make Sure These 3 Ingredients are in Your Skincare Routine
There are a lot of gimmicks and tricks out there when it comes to skin care. You may have been told to use snail slime, watermelon masks, or even crystals to take care of your skin issues. But there’s an easier, more effective way to bring out the beauty in your skin — use patient proven ingredients that really work. It’s that simple.
Dr. Schultz has been treating his patients for over 35 years with ingredients that make a true difference in their skin. He’s taken patient feedback, along with clinical tests and his decades worth of knowledge, to produce best-in-class solutions for your skin’s needs. But no matter where you shop for skincare, there are a few ingredients that should be at the core of your skincare routine.
Glycolic Acid is the Gold Standard of Exfoliants
Dr. Schultz says, “it’s essential to exfoliate every day.” And the key ingredient for daily exfoliation? Glycolic acid. But not all glycolics are created equal — you need a high quality glycolic acid that's effective, but also gentle enough on your skin for daily use. Dr. Schultz has formulated his glycolic acid to be incredibly effective in removing the mounds of dead cells building up on your skin’s surface, causing your skin to look rougher, more uneven, and older without causing your skin any irritation. This is what makes it possible to exfoliate every day, which, according to Dr. Schultz is the key to an effective skincare routine. If you don’t have glycolic acid in your routine, you’re missing out on younger-looking, glowing skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is the Very Best for Moisturizers
One of Dr. Schultz’s favorite ingredients is hyaluronic acid because it’s so important for both the surface of the skin and inside the skin. Inside the skin, hyaluronic acid is a very valuable ingredient in filler materials that dermatologists inject into the skin to help restore volume and thereby fix lines and wrinkles. On the surface, hyaluronic acid is a great humectant ingredient in moisturizers, retaining much more water and causing the moisturizer to work even better. When you’re choosing products to keep your skin moisturized, soft, and smooth, look for hyaluronic acid in the ingredients list to know you’re getting the very best.
Vitamin C is Essential for the Production of Collagen
According to Dr. Schultz, “Vitamin C plays an essential role in the production of collagen, which is so important in maintaining the texture, fullness, and integrity of your skin.” In addition to helping the production of collagen, vitamin C also reduces hyperpigmentation (or dark spots) and it’s an antioxidant, which protects your skin from free radicals that would prematurely age your skin. If you want the most effective form of vitamin C, Dr. Schultz recommends Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, which is more stable, better absorbed into your skin, and much less likely to irritate sensitive skin.
Knowing what’s in your products means you can be sure you’re getting the best ingredients for your skin. While diamond peel-off masks are a lot of fun, for your daily routine, you need ingredients that have been proven to work time and time again. Just taking a peek at the labels of your skincare products for these three ingredients — glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C — will give you a great idea of just how effective your current products are. Because when it comes down to it, you don’t want a gimmick, you want results.
