As the calendar moves to fall, I start to get more frequent requests for moisturizer and night cream recommendations. One of my new favorites is the Triple Lipid Restore by SkinCeuticals. This is not just a moisturizer, it’s an anti-aging treatment that helps skin look fuller, improves skin texture and also helps to minimize the appearance of pores.
It contains a 2:4:2 concentration ration of 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol and 2% fatty acids. Studies have shown that this concentration helps to restore lipid depleted skin, which is actually different from just “dry skin”.
This product is great for aging and dehydrated skin. If I have a patient complaining of skin laxity, roughness or increased pore size, I will point them towards the Triple Lipid Restore. I think of it as nourishment for those with aging skin. Also, if I have someone who is starting on a retinol, I will recommend this product to help counteract the flaking and dryness that can sometimes accompany the early use of retinols.
I have to confess, a coworker started using this product before I did. She saw someone who had not seen her in a few months and this person commented on how dewy and hydrated her skin looked. The only thing she had changed was switching her moisturizer to the Triple Lipid Restore. I immediately started using it and I love it! First, it smells wonderful thanks to a little lavender and also it feels luxurious and rich on my skin, but not heavy. In fact, if you heat it up in your hands, it almost turns to a serum. I enjoy that my skin getting moisture as well as an anti-aging treatment. I feel like I am getting a two in one with this product. Come by the office and try some for yourself!
