Q: Skincare products can be so expensive! Which ones are really worth spending more money on?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
A good skincare routine is important to maintaining the health and beauty of your skin. A gentle cleanser, balancing mist and nutrient-dense hydrating moisturizer are key components to any daily regimen. But as skin ages, experiences damage from the sun’s rays or breaks out, a little extra defense is deserved. So what should you splurge on? Well that’s easy—serums and treatments, because they are powerful target products designed to zero in on a specific need.
All of MyChelle’s intensive serums are designed to be used daily, on freshly cleansed skin, prior to toner and moisturizer, and they may be layered one over the other for multiple corrective effects if needed. The bioactive ingredients are all at levels proven to be effective in clinical studies, assuring you the most powerful results possible.
In the ever-evolving world of skin care, one thing is certain: MyChelle facial serums are an innovative blend of natural technologies and an important part of your healthy skin care regimen.
The great thing about splurging on serums is they easily integrate into existing regimens, and you can find a serum to focus on one thing or multiple things. My top “luxury” serum is the MyChelle Notox Anti-Wrinkle Serum, which contains powerful antioxidants and a unique multi-peptide blend to improve skin texture while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Matrixyl® synthe’6™ reduces wrinkle volume by 21 percent and wrinkle depth by 19 percent in eight weeks. Thymulen® 4 stimulates epidermis regeneration to encourage a youthful appearance. Syn®-Tacks Peptide stimulates collagen formation and minimizes wrinkle depth.
Another go-to skin indulgence is treatments like masks, scrubs and peels. MyChelle crafts treatments to address a multitude of skin concerns, from the Apple Brightening Peel to improve hyperpigmentation, to the Tropical Skin Smoother, which exfoliates and retextures the skin for a youthfully soft and vibrant complexion.
Also think about keeping your skin hydrated and beautiful with the Hydrating Cactus Mask that luxuriously softens, soothes and maintains hydrating moisture. Skin protecting and antioxidant-rich prickly pear cactus combines with soothing blue agave to ease discomfort and signs of redness while deeply hydrating and preventing moisture loss.
