At Skin & Beyond, we care deeply about what we put on our faces and bodies—just as much as we care about what we put in them. We have made it our life’s work to use our in-depth research and passion for quality skin care products to bring health and healing to you. Our carefully curated skin care products are diverse enough to address a variety of skin issues, including wrinkles, sun damage, acne, inflammation, and hyperpigmentation, and every product we sell contains powerful, meaningful, and specific active ingredients that do not just cover up your skin’s imperfections, but instead help your skin thrive.
The skin care products we offer are broken down into several different categories that address different skin concerns:
Anti-aging – These products use vitamins and peptides to help reduce visible signs of aging. We truly believe we carry the best wrinkle creams on the market.
Anti-acne – These products are formulated with proven ingredients like salicylic acid to help reduce and soothe breakouts. We have creams and face serums for acne.
Skin lightening – These products address pigmentation issues such as uneven skin tone and age spots. You'll find the best whitening serums on our site.
Facial peels – These products use ingredients like glycolic acid to help dead skin gently slough off, revealing fresh, healthy skin underneath.
Eye treatments – These products help visibly reduce crow’s feet and tighten the look of saggy skin around the eyes. Check out our eye skin care!
Moisturizing – These products use humectants and natural oils and extracts to help deeply moisturize skin and lock the moisture in. Find the best daily face moisturizers at Skin & Beyond!
Given all of this information, you may be wondering, “What exactly are some of these powerful active ingredients, and what can they do for my skin?” For the answers, read on.
While vitamins are most often thought of as being absorbed via the foods we eat, they can also be absorbed directly into the skin. This method ensures that vitamins that are required by the skin are targeted to just the right place.
Niacin, also known as Vitamin B3, is a vital nutrient for a healthy, high-functioning body. It is widely known that our bodies’ main systems, including the digestive and nervous systems, are dependent on it. Recent research has discovered that not only is niacin crucial for our bodies’ inner systems, but it is also vital for our skin. Niacinamide, the form of niacin used in skin care products, can boost your skin’s immunity, improve your skin’s ability to stay hydrated, reduce redness and blotchiness, control oily skin, protect your skin from heat, reduce hyperpigmentation, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. In other words, niacin is truly a miracle worker for your skin!
Retinol, more widely known as Vitamin A, is a popular ingredient in many skin care products. Retinol works by increasing cell turnover in your skin, which essentially helps your skin heal from and ultimately prevent a wide range of issues from cystic acne and eczema to dark spots and wrinkles.
Vitamin C is a powerful, natural anti-aging substance that, when applied to skin, can help firm up skin, in addition to dramatically brightening and evening out the skin tone. Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties also help lessen inflammation in the skin, reducing under-eye circles and speeding up the healing of sunburns.
Peptides are so important because they can help the skin form proteins. In doing so, they can form one of the most important proteins out there, collegen. New collegen can give you smoother and more supple skin.
Acetyl hexapeptide-3, a peptide most commonly referred to as Argirelene, is a fragment of the protein that Botox interacts with to reduce wrinkles. Due to this, Argirelene acts similarly to Botox by lessening reactions that cause certain facial muscle contractions, reducing the formation and appearance of wrinkles.
Matrixyl 3000 is made up of two polypeptides: palmitoyl-tripeptide, a three peptide chain; and palmitoyl-oligopeptide, a four peptide chain. This pair simulates the structure of broken-down collagen, signaling the skin to produce more collagen and elastin.
These are only a few of the many excellent actives that can be found in the various products we sell.
