There are four fundamental principles that are essential for the well-being of all skin types, promoting optimal skin health. These principles transcend individual ingredients and serve as guiding concepts. By understanding and implementing these principles through practical routines, you can make informed choices regarding skin care ingredients. Explore the appropriate steps for an effective skin care regimen to establish these connections for your skin. 

The Best Skin Care Ingredients For Your Skin

These principles, I call The Basic Bill of Skin Rights, form the core foundation behind the creation of my skin care set, featuring the finest ingredients available, and are a result of understanding these concepts. Once you grasp these concepts, you will gain the insight to select skin care ingredients more effectively. It is crucial to fulfill these basic concepts first, as without them, very little of any ingredient will have minimal impact on your skin.

Water

Water is essential for skin for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, water helps to maintain proper hydration levels in our skin, preventing dryness and promoting a soft and supple appearance. It plays a vital role in supporting our skin’s natural functions, including oil production and its swift passage to the surface of our skin for immediate oil delivery so as to arrive at the final destination of being  easily spread across our skin surface– this is the key to not acquiring clogged pores. Water also helps our cells absorb topical Dermal Nutrients with greater efficacy. 

Additionally, adequate hydration contributes to our skin’s elasticity, preventing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also improve our skin’s overall complexion and promote a healthy glow. Water acts as helping to balance oil production, as mentioned,  and prevent excessive dryness or oiliness.

Skin that is hydrated is perturbed less easily and has more sun resilience. 

Furthermore, water is fundamental  in our skin’s native detoxification process by helping our skin to become soft and premabale. This can help reduce the occurrence of blemishes and promote a clearer complexion.  Soft, permeable skin encourages the transport of our own natural oils as described above.

Dermal Nutrients

Our skin receives primary nourishment from the foods we absorb and delivery of said nutrients through the dense blood supply network just below our dermal layer. 

Fortunately, now there is an additional means of nourishment! Topically applied Dermal Nutrients also provide much-needed sustenance to powerfully supplement our hungry dermal layer. Basically, think of it as a topically applied superfood for our skin that will improve texture and add a luscious glow. The benefits of Dermal Nutrients for our skin are wide reaching but mainly will delay dermal thinning that causes aging.  A dense dermal mattress with an increased food supply is more robust. Turns out our dermal layer has an appetite and obliging it has tremendous benefits.

Think of topical Dermal Nutrients as natural liquid fertilizer — applied from above and absorbed by the “deep soil bed dermis” of our skin. Sounds absolutely glorious, right?

Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a crucial skin care ingredient that provides essential protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation. It shields our skin from sunburn, premature aging, and the risk of skin cancer caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays. 

By minimizing damage to our skin’s structure, sunscreen helps maintain its youthful appearance and elasticity while preventing hyperpigmentation. Regular use of sunscreen supports overall skin health and ensures a lower risk of developing sun-related skin conditions. Incorporating sunscreen into your daily skin care routine is vital for safeguarding your skin from the damaging effects of the sun and maintaining its well-being.

Sunscreen most importantly, protects precious collagen, as there is no way to add this back in later.  Contrary to popular belief, trauma- based procedures only diminish our collagen reserves faster.

Enzyme Exfoliants

An enzyme exfoliant is an essential ingredient needed in our skin care routines due to its gentle yet effective ability to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. By literally eating dead skin cells it reveals smoother, brighter skin while improving texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Enzymes are preferable to acids such as glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid that will over exfoliate skin, annihilate acid mantle, thus resulting in water loss and irritation.

Furthermore, enzyme exfoliants enhance product absorption, minimize clogged pores, and are suitable for sensitive skin. Including a monthly enzyme exfoliant in your skincare routine ensures you will not over exfoliate and provides the gentle exfoliation needed to maintain skin equanimity rather than the roller coaster that over exfoliation creates. 

Final Thoughts On The Best Skin Care Ingredients For Your Skin

Having spent over 30 years in the skin care industry, I have observed numerous trendy ingredients that come and go based on marketing campaigns and ingredient availability. The constant pursuit of new and exciting ingredients is a natural part of any evolving market, and it’s a curiosity that I hope we never lose. However, it is crucial to exercise discernment amidst the chaos of the skin care market and evaluate the true effectiveness of these ingredients. 

Personally, I find great satisfaction in observing the long-term impact of ingredients in controlled settings to determine their actual efficacy versus mere hype.

It is this obsession with ingredients that led me to develop the groundbreaking Medi-Holistic resurfacing process. Recognizing that our skin is a dynamic living entity, I understood the importance of creating a practical system and thoughtful sequencing of ingredients. It is not about haphazardly patching together ingredients to make a quick sale; instead, it is about prioritizing real-life results and the overall well-being of our skin.

I hope this helps you feel more confident and able to decipher the sea of skin care products and ingredients.  By adding these ingredients and understanding these concepts you can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin and face.
