Treating Youthful Skin

Skin care professionals are seeing an increase in younger clients, often in their 20’s asking for help with their first “wrinkles.” While their skin isn’t quite ready for age corrective (cosmeceutical) skin care products, they can focus on the skin care basics that will give them a head start in building up their skin health.

Suggested Regimen:

  • CLEANSE: For normal skin, a gentle cleanser such as the Sensitive Creamy Cleanser in the morning is all that’s needed to get started. In the evening, if there’s makeup and or sun protection to remove, the Vitamin C Cleanser is an excellent choice. Alternatively, the Acne Cleanser w/ Salicylic Acid will help those with acne or oily skin deeply cleanse while breaking up bacterial colonization.
  • NPBHYDRATE: This is a very important step for young skin, and it’s one where we can even help indulge their interest in reducing the first signs of wrinkles. The Nano-Peptide B5 Complex contains 30% Hyaluronic Acid for outstanding hydration while the presence of peptides gives the skin a gentle firming effect.
  • MOISTURIZE: Using a moisturizer is an optional step for youthful skin, but it’s also an opportunity to add more anti-oxidants and to help gently exfoliate their skin. Recommended: Sensitive Skin Facial Cream.
  • CZSPROTECT: Protecting against sun (UVA & UVB) damage is clearly the single most important practice for all skin types. Protecting with a physical sunscreen containing high quality Zinc Oxide, such as our line of Clear Zinc Solar Protection (17-18% Zinc Oxide, SPF 30+) is the best way to do it.
  • PFS_2EXFOLIATE: Exfoliating once every week with the Non-Abrasive Exfoliating Cream or up to twice a week with the Pineapple Facial Scrub is a good, gentle way of turning over dead skin cells.
