Cosmetics vs Cosmeceuticals

Do you know the difference? Do you know what you are buying and where they're working? Whilst both help, they both do very different things. First thing we need to know is the skin is made up of 3 layers the Epidermis, Dermis and the Subcutaneous Layer (Hyperdermis).

- Cosmetics, are applied to the outer most layers of the skin and that's where they stay, they can only work superficially on dead skin cells that are on the very top of the Epidermis. This will give you immediate but only temporary results.

- Cosme-ceuticals, is a blend of the terms cosmetic and pharmaceutical, these are able to make their way through the Epidermis and delivers active, potent ingredients to the Dermis itself, resulting in changes in the cells, that then treat specific skin concerns, such as ageing, pigmentation, breakouts. Creating healthy optimally functioning skin.

Whilst both do something to the skin, I know which I would be choosing, for long term benefits. Nadine Onscreen Enjays Beauty
