STARTING NEW ROUTINES
the power of a good routine for the best night's beauty rest ever
It's no secret that a nightly skincare routine is key to regenerate skin from all of the damaging external factors we expose ourselves to all day long. At Luma MD, a Sarasota med spa, we are well aware of the damage caused by the Florida sunshine. Morning routines will most likely include various layers of antioxidants and sunscreen but what about nighttime regimens? Well, one ingredient normally used to aid sleep has now become the ‘it’ ingredient for anti-aging.
Thank you Melatonin.
THE POWER OF MELATONIN
Studies on melatonin show that this hormone, which is found naturally in the body, is scientifically proven to repair skin while you sleep, help erase visible signs of skin aging, and improve skin firmness. We love that ISDIN has really pioneered its use in skincare.
ISDIN, a European dermatologic leader based in Barcelona has formulated innovative products that have been recommended by dermatologists for over forty years. They are now pioneering the use of melatonin in skincare products.
How does this work?
The levels of melatonin and its receptors dramatically decrease after the age of 40 and this is directly related to skin aging. Studies have shown that topically applied melatonin can actually act as a potent anti-aging agent because it can repair oxidative damage. ISDIN studies also show the efficacy of topical melatonin.
Can melatonin reduce the physical signs of skin aging and improve skin firmness?
Yes. Melatonin supports collagen, the key protein when it comes to skin aging. Specifically, melatonin can act on collagen Type I and Type III, which live in the dermis. The preservation of this collagen is critical to combat skin aging. The best time to use products containing melatonin is at night when our body naturally uses melatonin.
What would my restorative night time routine look like?
Isdin Age Countour Night
A luxurious nighttime cream that stimulates the skin’s natural antioxidant defenses against daily aggressors. Featuring Melatonin, skin-firming peptides, a calming plant extract, and niacinamide which repairs, adds firmness, and soothes. You will wake up with visibly smoother and more radiant skin. It is great to apply to the neck also for firming and definition.
Isdin Vital Eyes
A comprehensive repair cream formulated to create the appearance of more lifted, firmer and smoother skin around the eyes. Vital Eyes comes with a wonderful deluxe applicator that helps to decongest the eye area by providing a cooling effect to the skin, (we keep ours in the refrigerator).
Its gentle and effective formula is powered by melatonin, red sea algae extract, evergreen tree extract, and caffeine which helps eliminate toxins around the eye area and combats fatigue for a revitalized look.
Melatonik™ should also be applied every night. Warm 3 drops of Melatonik™ in the palm of your hands and massage into your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Melatonik™ provides increased hydration, improves skin firmness, and stimulates your skin’s own antioxidant defenses. One of the magic ingredients in Melatonik™ is Bakuchiol, an anti-aging ingredient of natural origin with retinol-like properties and a gentle profile that helps to restore the skin’s elasticity. Melatonik™ also enhances the results of laser procedures and injectables, it really should be a mainstay in your daily skincare regimen, even if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
