The beflattered team, all in our 40s, 50s and 60s have tried and tested loads of great products available on the market. Read our take on ptroducts to help Pitted Skin.
Acne is all too common among adults with factors beyond your control i.e. Genetics. However other factors are within your control. Effective resurfacing skin care, giving up the smokes, eating well and getting enough exercise and rest all effect the look of your skin.
The first step to any skin improvement is to ensure that you cleanse and tone your skin properly. A smart cleanser and toner that work with your skincare is a must.
If you like a wash of cleanser we think that is first class. Gentle enough to use every day and has been specifically formulated with AHAs from Lactic Acid that work by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. This exfoliating activity helps to smooth the skin’s texture and improve problems like acne scarring and pitted skin, pigmentation marks and wrinkles. Lactic Acid also has the fantastic benefit of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating collagen and the skin growth cycle.
But as it contains Avocado Fruit Extract as well the skin moistures levels are kept in check.
Accelerating Cleanser is also a great prep product for removing dead cells and unclogging pores so your Cosmeceuticals can penetrate better for even more dramatic results!
And if a wash off product is not for you making your skin feeling too dry, we like Organic Apoteke Buttermilk Cleanser with Damask Rose oil and buttermilk that leaves your skin soft and smooth while dissolving make-up and impurities.
This cleanser gently exfoliates to reveals fresher, younger looking skin that is soft, nourished and smoothed.
The next two steps in your regime are key to helping your Pitted Skin become lass noticeable. Professional treatment ingredients are creeping into home use products to resurface and retexture the skin. Peels and dermabrasion will help to polish the skins surface and to remove the dead and dull cells from the top encouraging radiant new ones.
Our favorite skin peel is . This product gives you professional results of a non invasive chemical peel at home! It uses the same ingredients as professional peels used by cosmetic surgeons, but at a more gentle concentration for gradual skin renewal. This unique 12-week program will gently and effectively slough away dead, dull skin to reveal fresh, bright, younger looking skin that is smoother and clearer.
We also love Skin Doctors Skin Doctors Powerbraision Kit. This is the real dynamic duo. With Powerbrasion Intensive Crystals and a handset that rivals a professional treatment providing deep and effective exfoliation. Removing dead and dull skin cells and revealing a glowing complexion, then to further this Gamma Hydroxy™ , a day and night moisturiser continues the good work of ridding the skin surface of dullness and bringing through a gorgeous new glowing look to your skin.
Gamma Hydroxy™ was specifically developed to help treat the appearance of acne-scarring but this safe, gentle, poly-hydroxy blend of super exfoliating acids can also help to visibly reduce the appearance of open pores, pigmentation trouble areas, wrinkles, frown lines and dull leathery-looking skin. So an all round winner for younger looking skin.
Visible results can be seen in as little as 3-6 weeks.
We also think the two SKIN.NY products are amazing Jodie Kidd does too!
[SKU:SK-1001] has an amazing complex called QAL-100™ - uniquely this contains three highly active ingredients, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Co-Enzyme Q10 and Acetyl l Carnitine, together these work synergistically to resurface the skin. It also has anti ageing benefits as well and helping to make wrinkles less noticeable so an all round winner This was also the first ingredient anti-ageing complex to be written about in the British Journal of Dermatologists- a real ground breaker.
[SKU: SK-1002] a milder version for skin that needs a gentle touch.
Last word! AHAs and intense activity on the skin can make your skin more prone to sunburn. So avoid using any of these products if you are off to the sun and wear a sunscreen. It’s a double whammy as you will be protecting your skin from ageing at the same time.
At beflattered.com we love the light texture of [SKU:SD-2281] with UVA and UVB protection formulated to take care of your skin and maximise any cosmeceutical treatments.
A nice little quick win from the USA is [SKU:PG-P-FIRM01] as this clever moisturiser contains AHAs and SPF 8 together
