Why chose to buy cosmeceuticals than over the counter skincare products?
Cosmetics are classified as anything that intends to cleanse, beautify, promotes attractiveness or alters the appearance. Cosmeceuticals are cosmetics with pharmaceutical properties. Cosmeceuticals contain high doses of ingredients such glycolic acids and retinoids, which are biologically active that can affect the behaviour and structure of the skin.
Cosmetics aim to make the skin look good by appearing smoother and brighter. They use ingredients with large molecular structures that cannot penetrate into the skin, but instead rest on the surface. Whereas cosmeceuticals actually affect the way skin cells work by using ingredients with smaller molecular structure that are able to penetrate into the skin to interfere with living cells.
Cosmeceuticals are incredibly powerful products, meaning they are often restricted to professional skincare professionals, who may recommend a consultation to assess your skin in order to build you a personalised skin care regime.
The initial outlay on cosmeceuticals may be considered expensive but it must be remembered that these products are high grade, technically advanced and have been recommended by professionals to suit each individual skin concern.
