If there was one perk to being stuck at home all last year, it helped us recognize the importance of self-care. We finally had the time to focus on our skin, and experiment with new routines and products. “I definitely saw my patients becoming more serious about their skin during that time,” says board-certified dermatologist Caroline Robinson, MD, founder of Tone Dermatology in Chicago. A year later, healthy, natural-looking skin is one of the biggest 2021 skincare trends—but we just don’t have as much time to devote to the process as we did before. Luckily, there are time-saving skincare solutions that allow you to maintain your healthy glow when a more advanced skincare regimen is no longer an option.
Use Less—and opt for products that multi-task
How to get healthier and hydrated skin? The key is to do more with less. Not only does using a hodgepodge of products and following tedious multi-step routines suck up extra time, they can actually damage skin. “Oftentimes I see people using products that they believe deliver only one benefit, but are loaded with harsh ingredients that might overlap with others in their regimen, which can cause more harm than good. For example, you would not want to use more than one glycolic acid product because then you would be ‘over-exfoliating’ and causing actual damage to your skin,” says Robinson. Her advice is to scale back and embrace multi-tasking products “that are formulated and designed to be a single solution so you can avoid overlapping benefits and ingredients, and causing harm to your skin.”
That’s why Perricone MD’s Cold Plasma Plus + Collection is perfect for the times we are living in right now. The science-backed, multi-tasking collection promotes healthy, younger-looking skin. It utilizes Perricone MD’s proprietary liquid crystal delivery system that helps ingredients rapidly absorb into the skin. There are 12 years of research behind this collection, 35 clinical and consumer studies and thousands of five-star reviews from customers. “When studying this collection, it became very clear to me that the Cold Plasma Plus+ formulas are put through rigorous and extensive testing,” says Robinson. “In addition, the brand conducts a before and after photoshoot, using real women at all ages and stages in their skin journey, to show what results can be expected.”
Invest in a skincare system that works together
The results can be pretty remarkable. Take the Cold Plasma Plus+ Multi-Tasking Duo for example—it can completely revitalize your skin in just 28 days. The Multi-Tasking Duo includes two gentle, yet powerful, products. The first is the Cold Plasma Plus+ Advanced Serum Concentrate—an all-in-one advanced face serum that packs Vitamin C Ester to smooth, brighten and even out skin tone. It also contains a hearty dose of omegas 3, 6 and 9 to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier (the lipid layer that keeps water locked in and irritants and other gunk out), and copper tripeptide to repair and firm skin. After using the Advanced Serum Concentrate for 28 days, you can expect to see less discoloration and dullness, smoother skin texture, smaller pores, fine lines and wrinkles evened out and improved skin firmness and elasticity. (Proof: In a clinical study of 30 women that took place over the course of 28 days, 100% of the participants saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, 97% saw a reduction in pore size and 80% saw a reduction in dullness.) To use the Cold Plasma Plus+ Advanced Serum Concentrate, massage the product onto your face and neck using a gentle, upward motion, both in the morning and in the evening before bed. You’ll notice that this product feels remarkably lightweight and absorbs into the skin almost instantly.
The other half of the Multi-Tasking Duo is Cold Plasma Plus+ The Intensive Hydrating Complex. This anti-aging firming moisturizer literally does it all. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrates the skin, improves skin tone and texture, and firms the skin—all in a matter of 28 days. (In a 28–day study of 30 women, 98% of the participants saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, 85% noticed more even toned skin and 85% saw improvement in skin radiance.)
Cold Plasma Plus+ The Intensive Hydrating Complex’s potency comes from its unique blend of effective (and complimentary) ingredients. It contains peptides (short chain amino acids) to help replenish and fortify the skin. Vitamin C Ester (a potent and more absorbable version of the antioxidant Vitamin C) targets uneven skin tone. In addition, Cold Plasma Plus+ The Intensive Hydrating Complex has a vegetable triglyceride complex, which is an intensely hydrating blend of jojoba, soybean and olive oils that boosts skin elasticity and strengthens the moisture barrier.
For the most effective results, apply Cold Plasma Plus+ The Intensive Hydrating Complex in the morning and the evening, after Cold Plasma Plus+ Advanced Serum Concentrate. Simply warm the product between your fingertips for a few seconds, then massage it onto your face and neck using a gentle upward motion until it’s fully absorbed into your skin.
