Choosing an Effective Skin Care Regimen

Oct 27, 2014 | Blog, Skin Care

When you are looking for the best possible skin care regimen to keep your skin soft, supple and ageless it can be overwhelming sorting through the products on the market. SkinMedica® has developed GRASS, the perfect solution to make shopping for skin care products easy. Here is how it works:

What is GRASS?

GRASS is an acronym for each element required in the GRASS skin care regimen formulated by SkinMedica®. You simply consider your age, skin tone and the amount of sun exposure your skin receives to create your own skin care regimen using the following five elements of GRASS:

G – Growth factors for rejuvenation

Growth factors minimize wrinkles while improving your skin’s texture and tone. Special formulations include soluble collagens, matrix proteins, antioxidants and cytokines to keep skin regeneration working to fight the signs of aging. Both the TNS Recovery Complex and TNS Essential Serum is clinically shown to improve skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve resiliency in as little as 90 days.

R – Retinol for renewal

Your skin needs retinol to assist with combating the signs of aging including skin discolorations. The GRASS regime uses algae extract, peptides and all important Vitamin E for soft, well hydrated skin required to protect your skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are everywhere and contribute to the deterioration of everything, including your skin and tissue. The SkinMedica Retinol Complex line uses an exclusive retinol formula with an antioxidant complex to help enhance skin texture while minimizing irritation.

A – Antioxidants for free radical defense

Antioxidants are your number one defense against free radicals. SkinMedica® uses antioxidants in combination with Vitamins C and E in their day and night creams for 24 hour defense against free radicals. The SkinMedica Vitamin C&E Complex has one of the highest concentrations of vitamins to help protect the skin and improves skin tone and texture while brightening skin appearance for a more youthful look.

S – Specialty for your unique needs

The reason many skin care products don’t work for you is that you are not using the right products specific to your needs. SkinMedica® has designed their line with specific skin conditions in mind so that you can choose the products that will address your personal skin care needs for the best results. For someone who’s skin is a little dry and needs some extra hydration, the SkinMedica Hydrating Complex would be perfect. If your skin is looking a little dull or you’re noticing uneven skin tone, Lytera would be the product for you.

S – Sun protection for UV defense

SkinMedica offers an assortment of SPF products designed for your specific needs so you always have the broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection you need based on your activity and skin type. A product like the TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 Sunscreen helps fight against environmental damage while enhancing skin texture and provides long lasting hydration.
The SkinMedica GRASS regimen takes the guesswork out of choosing products for your skin and makes it easy to maintain your skin health in five steps. North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic proudly features SkinMedica® products, contact us for a free consultation or to bring a system home today.
