Abstract

AbstractThe world of cosmeceuticals is ever-changing, with new ingredients, products and technologies appearing in the market constantly. However, finding the best balance of ingredients that are well-formulated and suitably packaged is challenging. Although many patients are not aware of cosmeceuticals, they regularly seek nurses’ advice for an array of skin conditions, from the ravages of photoageing to simple dry skin conditions. Indeed, skin care is often not what brings the patient to us, but a search for aesthetic treatments is. Understanding the technology behind any products that nurses may discuss with them, as well as recognising how the ageing process affects the skin, is important in addressing aesthetic patients’ needs. In this article, the author outlines the most frequently used and effective ingredients for the management of a range of common aesthetic skin conditions, including acne vulgaris, rosacea and pigmentation.
