Professional Grade Skincare Vs Store Bought Skincare

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between professional-grade skincare and the brands that you buy in a retail store? Well, here’s the answer…

Firstly, let’s start by saying that your skins main function is to protect you from the environment by repelling things like dirt, bacteria and micro-organisms – forming a barrier for your body (your skin is the largest organ of the body, so super important).

Because your skin is a natural barrier it requires scientifically formulated products to be able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to affect positive change. These products are known as Professional Grade Skincare and, they MUST be sold by a licensed professional. The reason these products need to be sold by a skincare professional is that every person’s skin is different and your skin concerns should be diagnosed and specific products prescribed, based on those concerns.

Retail skincare products may promise you the world, BUT (even if they’re super expensive) they CANNOT legally be formulated to penetrate your skin and in most cases will just sit on top of your skin, meaning you won’t benefit from any real difference to your appearance. Plus, when you’re choosing store-bought skincare you are often left to diagnose your skin concerns yourself – which leaves a large margin for error and can in some cases, make matters worse!

If you’ve been investing in store-bought skincare products without seeing the benefits, it’s definitely worthwhile considering switching to professional grade products. Our team are highly trained to diagnose and recommend the right products to target your skin concerns and get results!
