False Promises of The Big Cosmetic Companies

Posted by Dana Ramos, author of the best-selling book: The Skin Regime; Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin. 

I’m going to tell you the absolute truth, because Platinum Skin Care (and The Skin Regime) is absolutely committed to THE TRUTH in skincare. And that means sometimes informing you about things you don’t want to hear.

Here is one of those “disappointing” truths: There Is No Such Thing as a Facelift from a Bottle. The Big Cosmetic Companies want you to believe in “firming” and “lifting” serums, and that is why several are involved in class-action lawsuits for false advertising. They too often will carefully word their ads to let them get away with falsehoods by saying things like, “You may see visible improvement…” or “Many saw dramatic results.” Very vague indeed. And you pay a pretty penny for their multi-million dollar ad campaigns and the gazillion bucks they have to pay to Ms. Famous Actress (who is almost always Photoshopped into an unrecognizable perfection—and there are lawsuits for those misrepresentations, as well).

Another truth:
Most of the ingredients the Big Cosmetic Companies claim as “new” and “revolutionary” and “just discovered,” are just marketing ploys; those “new” discoveries with scientific-sounding ingredients haven’t been proven to work on a large scale and most dermatologists have either never heard of them or disregard them as unproven and worthless. Beware those ads that say, “Clinical trials show that…” or “Our scientists say this is the most amazing discovery…” Really? Whose clinics were they tried in? And of course their scientists will claim an “amazing discovery”—that is what they are paid to do!

But, now the good news! You CAN get dramatic improvement in skin quality, such as minimizing pores and fine lines, balancing and improving kin tone, clearing acne, lightening skin discoloration, but NOT from a product made by the Big Cosmetic Companies. Why not? Because of this other uncomfortable truth: Although the Big Cosmetic Companies have some products with good ingredients such as glycolic acids and retinols, they are often in very weak preparations that make them almost worthless in delivering the “dramatic” difference that you are shelling out the big bucks for. For instance, their peel products are buffered with so little of the active ingredients that at best, you will get a very mild peel which will give minimal results. Why don’t they make their products stronger and more effective? Because they don’t want to deal with educating the public on how to use the products correctly and what normal reactions to expect—they just want to sell as much as they can to as many people they can.

Platinum Skin Care products (as well as The Skin Regime) provide you with the purest and most effective ingredients in a range of effective strengths—even professional level strengths if you want them. And these ingredients are recognized by the medical community as truly effective and are often prescribed for their patients (such as glycolic and salicylic acids, retinoids, hyaluronic, and much more). We provide complete instructions for everything you purchase and plenty of information on our website about each product and how to select which are best for your skin. You can also call Platinum for one-on-one advice and information (at 586-598-6093)—that is something the Big Cosmetic Companies do not want you to do! And to top it off: You get the very lowest prices possible.

Want to get going started with honest-to-goodness EFFECTIVE products with the-right-strength ingredients? Here are some to try:

A great retinol with three strengths to choose from:
Retinol Molecular Serum. If you are new to retinols and/or have very sensitive skin, start with the level 10.

All super potent Dr. Platinum's Potions Actives: Everything from stem cells and patented peptides in percentages of 35%-75%. Absolutely UNHEARD of when dealing with the "big guys" who like to use .001-1% of their actives.

A great glycolic acid with ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid, two strengths to choose from :
Glycolic Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. If you are new to using glycolic acid products and/or have sensitive skin, start with the 15%.

A great peel that is LAYER-ABLE, so you can make it as mild or strong as you want: The 1-4-All Peel give a mild peel if you apply just one layer; each additional layer makes the peel stronger—as strong as professional-level if you wish!
