Skin Care Myth #1


Never before has the skincare industry as a whole been so saturated with options to cleanse, supercleanse, buff, scrape, remodel, and repair the skin you’re in. It used to be that you had a tidy list of resources from which you got your trusted advice, but thanks to YouTube, Instagram, vlogs, and sometimes your dentist, choosing the right products to achieve your goals has become downright challenging. Let those distractions go, I’ll take care of all of that for you.


You care about quality, you care about legitimacy, and over all, you care about getting results, not marketing fairytales.  The easiest way to extinguish the noise and get expert answers is to seek out an expert – a licensed esthetician.


Amidst all the outlets vying for your attention, your esthetician is your #1 resource, committed to providing you with solid, expert advice earned from, and confirmed by,  years of education and hands-on expertise. Those years of expertise have honed our eye to identify bogus claims when we see them.  In this edition of Great Skin Blog I cover one myth  that I hear frequently.  Additional myths will be discussed in the next few issues of Great Skin Blog.  Be sure to check back.



Myth # 1: Topically applied collagen builds collagen

Collagen, found in our skins dermal layer, is a key part of our skin structure. It forms a network of fibers within our skin that behaves much like a box spring underneath a mattress. In taut, youthful skin, the ‘box spring’ is naturally deeply hydrated and resilient, but as skin ages, the dermis, where our collagen resides, loses elasticity and gradually begins to sag.


Science has proven over and over again that topically applied collagen cannot bypass the dermis, (even at nano size), to fill in the gaps that withering collagen leaves behind. Injected collagen and other FDA approved prescription wrinkle fillers can produce a smoother, plumper, more volumized facial appearance. Not interested in fillers or injectables?  Medical grade peptides, like those used in Viktoria DeAnn bio active peptide products, are a great, effective and non-invasive way to bring youth back to your complexion. 


How are Viktoria DeAnn peptides different?  Viktoria De’Ann  synthesizes its own unique Peptide Messengers that are administered transdermally., not simply topically.  Optimizing the cells in growth areas of the skin (dermis and epidermis) allows for an internal re-establishment of the Natural Healthy Cell Cycle. As these supporting layers of the skin peak towards their natural operating function the affects can be seen in the subsequent outer layers through corrective balanced exfoliation, skin health, and visible skin beauty.  Peptides allow the skin’s cellular function and skin renewal cycle to become optimized and renewed, which replaces the upper thick dead skin cells. Rejuvenation of the dermis helps to renew and smooth the skin’s surface. Renewal of the stratum corneum (epidermis)  also helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation and freckles, while healthy Collagen and Elastin promote firm, youthful skin. I personally use Viktoria DeAnn products and LOVE the way my skin looks.  Viktoria DeAnn products are available at Great Skin by Chryle.
