Thicken your skin and make it more youthful when you incorporate the right skin rejuvenation products into your home care regimen.
Advanced skincare products containing HSAs, peptides, GAGs, and growth factors provide nourishment and hydration, so that your skin is it’s healthiest. By creating more collagen, elasticity and volume, these products reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to restore a youthful glow.
Who Can Benefit from These Products?
Skin rejuvenation products containing HSAs, GAGs, peptides, and growth factors help to guide skin in the healthiest direction - so almost anyone can benefit, says Head of Aesthetics, Karen Fernandez.
More specifically, if you have healthy, normal skin with no issues, we generally recommend getting started in your 30s.
However, if you are a young adult (over 18) and have a need - whether because you have scarring or you had a lot of sun exposure as a child - Karen suggests getting started right now. A growth factor, like TNS Recovery Complex, can mitigate the damage but the longer you wait to begin, the longer it will take to correct your concerns.
*Please consult with your physician before incorporating these products into your routine if you’re pregnant, nursing, or have any medical skin conditions.
The Best Skin Rejuvenation Products
At SkinSpirit, we have a number of skin rejuvenation products we recommend to thicken and strengthen the skin. Here are a few of our favorites:
Alastin Skin & Neck Complex
SkinSpirit is committed to always bring you the best science and our newest addition to our retail line is exactly that! Revolutionary technology that delivers results.
One of our newest products, Alastin Restorative Skin Complex is uniquely focused on growing and improving the quality of your elastin fibers to strengthen and firm the skin.
In addition to Skin Complex for the face, Alastin has a neck product, Alastin Restorative Neck Complex, that is formulated for the specific needs of the skin in that area; this is great for correcting crepey skin in the neck and smoothing the texture.
SkinMedica’s TNS Products
SkinMedica’s TNS products are some of our favorite growth factors, and they have something for everyone.
Formulated with advanced growth factor technology (TNS-MR) and a highly active blend of botanicals, marine extracts, and peptides, TNS Advanced Plus is the newest growth factor serum on the market. This formula is proven to help tighten skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Studies have shown patients looking up to six years younger in just 12 weeks! This is next level, all-in-one goodness for the skin!
TNS Recovery Complex is ideal for those who’d like to address scarring in addition to fine lines and wrinkles, as well as for use post-treatment. Karen recommends this option for young adults or those with acne prone skin, who are looking to address skin concerns, like acne scars.
Sente Skin Rejuvenation
Proving science IS beautiful, Sente perfected the use of GAG’s and has now added HSA! Heparan Sulfate Analog is a vital building block for your skin and will increase your skin’s ability to attract and hold onto water (aka: be deeply REhydrated). Hydrated skin is happy skin that appears youthful and firm.
Bio Complete is an excellent option as a starter retinol for those with sensitive skin, or for those who want to avoid peeling from their retinol. Then, for anyone who is severely dehydrated and can’t seem to get enough moisture or hydration, Karen says the Dermal Contour Serum is the go-to.
Insider Tip: Cycling out products every 9-12 months is generally recommended, particularly if you’re focusing on anti-aging in your home care routine. Rotating the products will increase efficacy, allowing your skin to adjust to each new product.
How to Incorporate Your New Products Into Your Regimen
Now that we’ve shared some of our favorites for at-home skin rejuvenation, let’s talk a little bit about how to use these products.
“When in preventative mode, you can use any of these once a day,” says Karen. “But any type of correction will require twice a day use.”
In the mornings:
If you’re using your new product in the mornings, apply it after your antioxidant and underneath moisturizer or SPF.
For evening use, apply on clean, dry skin, under your moisturizer. If you’re combining with Retinol, allow 10 minutes between applications. Your goals will influence the order; your provider can help you develop a home care regimen around your concerns.
Insider Tip: We recommend using retinoids in combination with your GAGs, peptides, and growth factors to see the best results. That’s because retinoids will increase the metabolism of your skin, helping cells to produce faster like they did when you were younger, while the “nutrients” provided by GAGs, HSAs, peptides and growth factors will improve the quality.
If you’re new to both, we generally recommend incorporating retinoids into your routine first; this warms your skin up, increases metabolism and improves skin health so that once you start your “renew” product, it will work faster and better.
