Some people are born with great skin but most of us have to work at it. It all comes down to finding and following the right skincare routine. You might be someone who loves to take a deep dive into researching and sampling products for your skin type and creating your own routine. Incorporating a ritual of self-care is soothing and makes you feel good; it’s not for nothing that #selfcareSunday is a popular Instagram hashtag.
But for those of us who don’t have the time, energy or patience to sample a million products from a million different places (the drugstore, department store and online) there are other options. It’s a huge time saver to find one brand that works – and offers a wide variety of products for whatever might be ailing you, from uneven skin tone to wrinkles or dry skin. The ideal brand would have enough products to stay with us as our skincare needs change and evolve, whether that’s due to seasonal changes or aging skin.
One new brand that’s caught our eye is Formulyst. The brand’s concept comes down to one basic but critical idea — developing the right formula to treat skin with just enough of what you need.
Formulyst’s philosophy is to create the right products that will help treat skin issues, rather than covering them up. The brand believes in long term solutions and prevention rather than quick fixes. The formulas, which are made in the USA, are created with a potent mix of active ingredients. The focus is on gold-standard ingredients that really work, such as retinol, rather than creating products that just feel good and smell good.
The team behind Formulyst comes from the dermatology world, so they know what works and what doesn’t- and they also know that different skin types don’t always react in the same way to the same product. The team has relentlessly tested their highly concentrated formulas to deliver just the right amount of product for what you need, whether that is to treat dry skin or the first signs of fine lines.
Formulyst incorporates plenty of vitamins and antioxidants in its formulas, such as Vitamin B, C, E, as well as powerhouse ingredients such as retinol, the gold standard for tackling fine lines and discolorations. Other ingredients include gentle but effective AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids) which slough off dead skin cells to reveal fresher looking skin, and rosehip seed oil which is a super charged moisturizer.
The cornerstone of the Formulyst regimen are serums. Why a serum? Formulyst believes that serums are one of the most effective ways to visibly counter the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, sagging and dryness. It makes sense. Serums are lightweight and readily absorbed into the skin, and can easily be incorporated into a skincare routine. They deliver a strong dose of what you need, and a little bit goes a long way.
Formulyst offers a wide range of serums, and finding the right one depends on your skin type, and any concerns you may have. Here’s a look at some of the Formulyst serums and what they can do.
Designed for aging skin, this lightweight serum is fortified with Pro-Collagen Complex, a powerful blend of peptides and proteins. This serum helps leave skin looking smoother and more refined, and helps to tackle fine lines and wrinkles.
Think of this serum as your daily defense. Forumlyst’s Active Serum was developed to help shield skin from environmental damage that contributes to the aging process, like pollution and UV rays. The serum is loaded with pure vitamin B, C and E, plus ferulic acid and niacinamide, to help counter the effects of free radical damage.
Ultimate Youth Concentrate
Ultimate Youth Concentrate is bio-engineered from plant stem cells and loaded with a concentrated combination of five peptides. The deeply hydrating formula helps soften and smooth skin, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Anti-Aging Night Cream
The powerhouse ingredient in Formulyst’s anti-aging night cream is Encapsulated Retinol Technology. The cream delivers a high dose of retinol to help target fine lines and increase cell turnover. At the same time, skin is left moisturized and nourished thanks to jojoba and safflower seed oil, which help lock in hydration.
