Looking for stocking fillers for grown-ups? Why not think about some seriously effective skincare products?

If you want to improve your skin and tackle signs of ageing, but aren’t quite ready to consider aesthetic treatments, or even if you already have regular Botox injections but want to give it a boost at home, why not consider our range of clinically proven skincare?

Three levels of skincare stocking fillers

Over the Counter (OTC) products are available all around us from the local pharmacy to supermarkets and they all claim amazing results. The sheer abundance of skincare products can leave you overwhelmed without any real understanding of what’s right for your skin.

These types of products, which you can pick up on the high street or the supermarket are going to be purely cosmetic and will only have superficial effects on the top layer of skin.

On the other hand, if you see a GP for a pharmaceutical skin product then it’s generally not likely to have an effect on the skin’s overall health or appearance but will be focused on a medical cure.

In between these two extremes there’s another, intermediate level of cosmeceutical products which are designed to have more penetrating effects on lower levels of the skin, producing more profound improvements in complexion and skin health. These products can make fantastic stocking fillers for teenage children, or even for grown-ups.

It’s all in the delivery method

One of the key differences between OTC and cosmeceutical products is the delivery method. At the molecular level OTC products tend to be quite large and therefore can’t penetrate the skin whereas cosmeceutical products are “wrapped up” in tiny liposomes which penetrate to the lower levels.

The most important thing to do is seek the advice of skin care specialists about the right product for you and your skin.

Skilled professionals, such as the aestheticians here at Cambridge Clear Beauty will be able to guide you through the maze of different products and be able to recommend a tried and tested solution.
