ESK is an Australian made range of powerhouse natural skincare products designed to repair and protect skin from our harsh environment and the anti-ageing process. Using evidence based knowledge, they have created an extremely high quality line based on integrity and evidence.
The main ingredient is Vitamin A in the form of retinal, which is superior to retinol and retinoic acid.
This form of retinal still has the amazing collagen boosting and skin repairing ingredients as retinoids, but without any of the harsh side effects.
If this sounds bit confusing this is basically how it works -
Retinal Palmitate > Retinol > Retinal (Retinaldehyde) > Retinoic Acid
Sometimes known as retinaldehyde, retinal is the third stage in the retinoic acid conversion process and performs closest to prescription retinoic acid at combating the physical signs of ageing.
We all want our collagen to stay at optimum levels, as this means fewer lines and wrinkles without having to turn to cosmetic surgery as we age. (Because who likes injections)!
Retinal has been clinically proven to be the superior cosmeceutical retinoid when compared to retinol and retinyl esters; and was even concluded in one study to be equally as effective as prescription retinoic acid at reversing the effects of photoageing.
I remember years ago using the prescription retinoid, which worked to clear my acne scars, but left my skin bright red and flaky. I have also tried retinols which can be found in over the counter skin care and they just can't compare to the benefits I've found in using retinal based moisturisers from ESK.
For the past month I have been using Ultimate A and Ultimate A + which both contain Vitamin A (Retinal) and B3 (Niacinamide) . Both are night creams, but I also used them every morning. B3 is another extremely important ingredient to have in your skincare as it contains keratin, which helps to improve your skins texture and retain moisture. When skin lacks keratin it becomes dull and sagging, this is where B3 can come in to save the day and your skin.
These products came at a great time for me as I had a very bad case of sunburn on my neck and decollatage
( just from a few hours in the pool)! I used these products day and night and they quickly helped my skin to recover from redness and dryness, as well as helping to repair any sun damage. This shows how gentle it is on damaged skin, at the same time giving it the collagen boost it needed and rapidly repairing my skin within one week.
The texture is smooth, with a great light-medium consistency, leaving a great base for make-up.
I love the idea of using these vitamins to work their magic on my skin. I take many vitamins daily, but using vitamins A and B topically is a double bonus for anti-ageing skincare.
This is an amazing range which is suitable for all skin types, those affected by acne and rosacea should give this a go instead of turning to harsher alternatives. This is definitely a product I will keep in my skincare regime.
