Multiple Step Skincare: Why Products Work Better Together
In the world of skincare there are products and then there are product lines. Any given product can do one or even several things: cleanse and exfoliate; protect and moisture; etc. The best ones target common problem areas, like acne, wrinkles, dryness and discoloration, and are designed to work on many types of skin. However, no product, regardless of how good it is, can stand on its own as the only thing applied to the skin. Why? Because effective skincare involves cleansing, correcting, hydrating and protecting and no single product has yet been created that effectively combines all of these elements. So instead of just one-step, to be your most beautiful, you really should have a multiple step skincare routine using products from one line that are formulated to work together.
Synergy in Skincare
Products work better together because of synergy. Synergy is literally defined by Merriam-Webster as a mutually advantageous conjunction or compatibility of distinct business participants or elements. Synergism occurs when the interaction creates a total sum that is greater than the individual effects. A well designed multiple step skincare routine creates this greater effect.
The best skincare and beauty products are formulated to take advantage of synergies. Finding the right blend and balance of ingredients that are specifically crafted to work together to care for your skin and help you be more beautiful can take years of scientific research to accomplish. Calysta Labs has accomplished this with simple elegance. They have not only developed products that are balanced with the best of what science and nature have to offer, but also have created a small but comprehensive line of complementary products that cut a multiple step skincare routine down from the 10 or 12 step routines that are en vogue. You can save time and be beautiful when you use these 3 practical products. Any one of them will leave your skin looking and feeling more beautiful, but together they will make you your most beautiful.

How Calysta Products Work Together
Used together these products build on each other, providing more sources of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, exfoliants, and moisturizers that increase and protect collagen, dissolve oils, eliminate discoloration and bacteria, and promote elasticity. The skin is a complex organ made up of layers that interconnect and support not only your beauty but your body's ability to protect from the elements. Healthy skin is beautiful skin and the best way to have both is through a skin-care routine that is designed with the most powerful tools available.
For instance, aloe vera has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that promote healing. Retinol A, a retinoid, has been well documented to treat acne since the 1940s. (Source). Glycolic acid, used to treat signs of aging, is proven to produce collagen. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that also helps to promote collagen. Combined with moisturizers, and applied to the skin, the compounds will support each other. When DMAE is used in advance of this application, in a cleanser, the skin is given a powerful dose of a naturally occuring anti-aging compound. Even though the cleanser is rinsed off of the skin, it is formulated for the DMAE to penetrate and begin working on healing. The serum used after the cleanser locks in moisture and begins to work on the other parts of your skin. These two steps alone do a significant amount for your skin.
The third step of routinely using a charcoal mask as part of your skin care routine provides the added benefit of deep cleaning and extra amounts of DMAE, as well as the clarifying, healing and toning benefits that are delivered in the mask. When the serum is later applied it enhances the epidermal tissue repair process that the hyaluronic acid is assisting with.
Each of the ingredients that make up the products that in turn are put together for this multiple step skincare routine have been thoughtfully added to create the best and most beautifying products available over the counter.
