The Dermesse Skin Care System...
Because A Little of This and A Little of That Just Isn't Good Enough
The question is simple: Why do we continue to buy and use over the counter (OTC) skin care products when they seldom live up to their promises? Take a moment to learn the difference between OTC and Pharmaceutical grade skin care.
We Get Drawn In to the Marketing of Over-the-Counter Products
Why do we continue to buy over-the-counter skin care products when we know they seldom work? Most of us know the answer. Over-the-counter products advertised on TV and in magazines by beautiful models and actors are compelling, and it's easy to be swayed. Although we know better, we are still mesmerized when we see a photo or image of a beautiful person with what appears to be a flawless, luminous complexion. Yet, we know that these images are airbrushed, tinted, and computer-enhanced.
We Are Seduced
And look at the products themselves: the package is lovely, the promises on the back of the box are exciting, the jar is a little work of art, and the color of the cream is stunning. Then there's the product itself: the cream feels so smooth and creamy and nice...and it smells good, really good. No wonder we buy them.
We Are Missing Accurate Information
Few of us have a real understanding of what type of skin care products are required to actually repair damaged or aging skin. It's not that we don't want to know; consumers spend a good deal of time pursuing products that will solve their skin problems. But the fact is that major cosmetics companies use some of the brightest, most marketing-savvy minds in the industry to spin seductive tales and we want to believe them. We end up with a cupboard filled with products we don't use for a myriad of reasons: they don't work, they're greasy, they don't absorb into the skin, they absorb into the skin and the skin still feels dry, they cause breakouts, they smell weird...the list goes on.
We Have Invested Time and Money
We want these OTC products to work because we sought them, we bought them, and we think we deserve the payoff they promise. So, we use them and we use them and, now and again, we think we're getting somewhere...but then our skin breaks out again, or dries out again, or acts out again. And we keep thinking, "Well, maybe I'll use it just a little longer..."
But patience isn't always a virtue. While the same products containing so-called therapeutic amounts of collagen or Tretinoin or hyaluronic acid are pressed upon us continuously – we know they don't work but continue to use them...hoping. Let's look at the facts:
The Truth About Over-the-Counter Skin Care Products
- They're not formulated in a way that allows for penetration beneath the surface layer of the skin
- Products that sit on the surface of the skin have a brief effect, at best. A cream for dry skin will be absorbed and your face be dry – and feel dry – within a matter of hours, if not minutes
- Many chemical agents are used as foundations for beauty products, which can be a problematic for sensitive skin
- OTC products do not treat the underlying skin condition that results in the obvious signs of aging (loss of collagen, reproduction of damaged skin which reproduces the same damaged skin after every surface skin layer is shed
- OTC products are, by definition, formulated to be used by anyone and everyone; as such, they contain only minute amounts of the active ingredients that actually treat, repair, and correct skin problems
The Bottom Line
Give Yourself Products That Actually Repair and Correct Your Skin
Products that penetrate deeply enough to work beneath the surface of your skin enable you to achieve skin health. Dermesse products are pharmaceutical-grade and have been formulated to penetrate deeply, so that they can work on the cellular level. Our Tretinoin cream actually reduces fine wrinkling, discoloration, roughness, and laxity of the skin. It thickens and strengthens the outer layer and coaxes the skin to produce more collagen, which plumps up the face and gives it a younger appearance.
Our Hydroquinone-based products even out the skin and reduce discoloration. Most importantly, they work on the cellular level by inhibiting melanin production – which cause the discoloration and age spots that emerge as we grow older.
We invite you to retrain your skin back to health with the Dermesse Skin Care System, customized to treat your unique skin problems. The plan takes only moments a day, and once your skin has been repaired you can keep it healthy with a simple maintenance plan.
