At what age should I start using anti-aging care?

Unfortunately, we cannot prevent aging and our first wrinkles. It is 40% genetically predisposed. But that leaves 60% that we can positively influence with the right care. We cannot stop the process, but we can slow it down. Therefore, we should protect our skin from aging at an early stage! The first signs of skin aging are already visible in the 20s. However, not only genetics influences this process, also environmental influences, a healthy lifestyle and the diet.

Why is skin care so important?

In addition to our individual needs, our skin is exposed to environmental influences every day. The skin struggles with dryness, irritation, first wrinkles, blue screen light and much more. Therefore, it is important to provide it with the right active ingredients every day to keep it looking youthful, beautiful and healthy for a long time.

How long should I use the skincare line before I can say it's right for me?

Our skin goes through a renewal cycle every 28 days. During this time, all visible layers of skin are shed, and new ones are added. In the first and second week of using the facial care program, the skin is detoxified. During this phase it may look slightly blotchy, for example, and one or two small pimples may appear. However, this is not a cause for concern, but completely normal. In the third and fourth week of application, an even, radiant and fresh complexion will be visible.

Which daily care ritual is right for my skin?

The choice of products for daily care is large. But what comes first, what comes last? For an even and radiant complexion, a daily care ritual is important.

Step 1: Cleanse
A thorough cleaning is the most important thing for a beautiful skin. Both in the evening and in the morning, so that the skin can regenerate overnight. The skin is freed from dirt and impurities and the active ingredients of the products can work much better and deeper into the skin.

Step 2: Prepare and care
The heart of the daily beauty ritual is the skin care cream. Here, it is especially important that this perfectly suits you. With the L-Carnosine Anti-A.G.E. Cream, the saccharification in the cells is reduced, thus slowing down the skin aging process. The perfect complement are the Power Serums with deep-acting, low-molecular hyaluronic acid and high-quality active ingredients. They satisfy different skin needs and provide a visible instant effect.

When can I expect visible results?

Visible results can be seen after just a few days. The skin will look smoother and fresher. Of course, any beautiful skin also requires the right lifestyle in terms of a healthy diet with little sugar and carbohydrates and sufficient water intake. Sports and mental balance are of course also part of it.

Is the Dr. Susanne von Schmiedeberg skin care series tested on animals?

Animal testing for decorative end products has been officially banned in Germany since 1986. In 1998 this ban also became binding for care cosmetic end products, with the EU following suit in 2003. Since 2009, the testing of individual cosmetic ingredients on animals has also been prohibited throughout the EU. As of 2013, there is also a general ban on the sale of cosmetic products introduced to the EU market after March 2013 that have previously been tested on animals. These requirements are legally binding bans that apply to all cosmetics manufacturers in the EU without exception.

Are the products vegan?

All products are 100% vegan.

However, there is one exception: the L-Carnosine Anti-A.G.E. Fluid. In the fluid, milk proteins have been processed so that the sebum flow is regulated in combination/oily skin, thus ensuring an intact hydro-lipid film of the skin.

Are preservatives included?

Almost all products are preserved with phenoxyethanol, otherwise they would expire within a few days. This is too much waste of product and packaging.

Are the products perfumed?

The L-Carnosine Anti-A.G.E. Cream for sensitive skin and the L-Carnosine Anti-A.G.E. Eye Cream are fragrance-free, as sensitive skin often experiences irritation as soon as fragrances are incorporated into the formula. All other products contain fragrances. The fragrances used comply with legal requirements and have been tested under the highest standards.

The miracle ingredient L-Carnosine, what can it do and why is it so important in connection with the skin aging process?

L-Carnosine is a dipeptide consisting of the two amino acids alanine and histidine. It occurs naturally in the human body, but its concentration decreases with age. For skin care, L-Carnosine is so interesting because it has the special ability to reduce the accumulation of A.G.E.s (Advanced Glycation Endproducts) in the skin, which are responsible for saccharification, thus slowing down the skin aging process.

The body produces L-Carnosine itself. Why do I need it supplementally?

Yes, L-Carnosine occurs naturally in our bodies. However, it is metabolized and processed by the body relatively quickly. With increasing age (around the age of 30), the body’s own production decreases and skin aging increases. Therefore, it makes sense to supply the skin with additional L-Carnosine.

What are the concentrations of the active ingredients in the various power serums?

We always use the optimal application concentration for the cosmetic activity here, i.e. we are not only guided by the manufacturers’ recommendations, but primarily by the results of the efficacy tests.

How does the low-molecular hyaluronic acid in the Power Serums work?

Low-molecular hyaluronic acid absorbs deeper into the skin. It consists of smaller molecules (50 kD) and ensures that water is stored in the connective tissue of the skin. This gives the skin the appearance of being plumped up and also visibly reduces wrinkles.

Where is Dr. Susanne von Schmiedeberg produced?

Dr. Susanne von Schmiedeberg is MADE IN GERMANY. We research, develop and produce in Germany.

Do I need additional nutritional supplements to my skincare?

Beauty comes not only from the outside, but also from the inside. Beauty Food is a valuable and highly effective dietary supplement composed of effective combinations of active ingredients. L-carnosine, low-molecular hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C, E and zinc provide the body with important nutrients and help the skin maintain its youthful appearance. The capsules can be taken quickly and easily on the go, at work or while traveling. The supplements are also free from gluten, dyes and lactose, and are also an ideal fit for a vegan lifestyle.
