Getting older has its good and bad sides. You learn more, earn more, and often leave behind all of the uncertainty of your teens and early twenties. But one problem that troubles lots of people as they get older is the effects of time on the skin.
Time and other factors can severely impact the health and appearance of your skin. But you can help reverse or prevent these effects with cosmeceuticals. These custom antidotes for aging skin can help solve a range of age-related skin problems and give you smooth, youthful skin once more.
So, let’s take a look at how anti-aging compounding can help your pharmacist create cosmeceuticals that are uniquely tailored to your skin needs.
What are cosmeceuticals?
Cosmeceuticals are products like creams and lotions that have cosmetic and therapeutic effects. This means that they make your skin look better and also contain ingredients that have positive effects on your skin cells, for deeper and longer lasting benefits.
Aging and your skin
Obviously, you can’t stop yourself getting older. And to a certain extent, you can’t prevent the effects of time on your body. But many of the signs of age that you see on your skin, such as wrinkling and sunspots, actually aren’t directly related to the passage of time. They’re caused by external factors such as:
- Poor nutrition
- Damage from the elements (sun, cold, or wind)
- Irritants like soaps and makeup
Over time, the effects of these factors add up, making your skin look and feel older. Unfortunately, you can’t avoid all of these factors completely, even with the best skincare routine. Instead, you need to talk to your pharmacist about anti-aging compounding for custom solutions that suit your needs and issues.
Skincare solutions for you
So, why should you talk to your local compounding pharmacist rather than using one of the many commercially available anti-aging products? Well, there’s one very important reason for this:
Commercially available skincare products are mass produced and aren’t created to your skin’s specific needs and issues. Everyone’s skin is different and the best way to get the most from your skincare products is to have them customised to your exact skin type.
By compounding, or mixing and combining ingredients, your pharmacist can create customised skincare products. This means that you can enjoy the effects of pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that are scientifically proven to reduce the signs of aging in combinations that suit your needs. You can even have your products tailored to address specific signs of aging such as:
- Fine lines
- Skin dullness
- Skin dryness
- Visible pores
- Rough or uneven texture
- Age spots
But your customised skin products can do more than reverse or prevent the common signs of aging. You can also have your products customised to:
- Remove irritants or allergens
- Soothe other skin issues like rashes, redness, or inflammation
- Treat blemishes and problem areas
- Increase moisturisation
So, why not choose a skincare solution that does double or even triple duty, helping your skin remain youthful while solving other skin issues at the same time?
Feeling and doing your best is often tied to looking your best, which is why it isn’t frivolous to worry about the effects of time on your skin. With anti-aging compounding, you can access a whole range of products that your pharmacist tailors to your skin, your preferences, and your needs. This will give you the best chance of having smooth, youthful skin for as long as possible.
