ANTI-AGING PRODUCTS: BEST INGREDIENTS
Almost every woman who visits Grace Skincare Clinic tell us of their desire to retain soft and supple skin. We are all afraid of the same thing- fine lines and wrinkles replacing our firm skin and youthful glow.
The multi-billion dollar cosmetic and cosmeceutical industry has jumped in to provide a myriad of products aimed to combat aging. Please take careful note that no matter what the advertisements claim, anti-aging creams and products will not reverse the process of aging nor can they completely stop the process.
However, the good news is that proper use of products, lifestyle changes and other anti-aging prevention techniques will help slow the aging process and can even hide the signs of aging on the skin.
We always encourage your desire to remain confident through healthy and youthful looking skin. The appropriate use of anti-aging products as a part of your skincare routine will reap benefits in delaying the aging process and in masking the signs of aging.
The anti-aging ingredients that Grace Skincare Clinic advises:
- Retinol: This ingredient is one of the best in fighting wrinkles. It is a Vitamin A compound and an antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances which help neutralize free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules which break down skin cells and cause wrinkles). Hence, retinol is found in most anti-aging creams and serums. Retinol also helps promote skin renewal by boosting cell turnover, which also makes it effective in combatting acne.
- Grape seed extract: Besides being an antioxidant, it is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Grape seed extracts also promote wound healing.
- Vitamin C: is a well-known anti-oxidant helping the skin to fight against sun damage – which in Ho Chi Minh city and other sunny climates is the number one cause for premature skin aging, Vitamin C is another common ingredient in anti-aging serums and creams.
- Niancinamide: An anti-oxidant, which helps reduce water loss from the skin. It keeps skin hydrated. Moisture retention is critical to maintain the structure of the proteins which help maintain the structural integrity of the skin.
- Hydroxy acids: Hydroxy acids are a range of exfoliants which help remove the upper layer of old, dead skin, thereby promoting the growth or new, evenly pigmented and smooth skin.
- Call Grace Skincare Clinic for a fruit, AHA or BHA peel (all contain hydroxy acid) that generate great youthful skin results.
- Please be VERY careful about spa or home use of peels. These products can be dangerous. Their use should be directed and monitored by a Dermatologist and done in a medical facility for safest and best results.
- Tea extracts: This is one of the most commonly found ingredients in anti-aging creams. It contains anti-oxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties.
- Peptides: These were initially used widely due to their healing properties and now are widely found in anti-aging creams because they are effective for wrinkles too.
What you should remember when using anti-aging products:
You can achieve a healthy, more youthful look through careful attention and enhanced understanding of what products you are using and why they help. Remember, not all products are meant for everyone- not everyone’s skin is the same and a product that works well for your friend might not work well for you. A few helpful tips:
- Products that cost more may not be more effective than a product that is less expensive. Do not be fooled by a fancy label or expensive brand- it just may not be better for your skin than another lower priced product.
- Korean, Japanese, French and American brands are sold at high prices, but do not make decisions solely based on country of origin or high price. Remember that many western products may be formulated for different skin types than is typical in Vietnam and that Korean products may be no better than others despite the marketing hype.
- Skin improvements generally are noticed only after prolonged use of a products. Once you stop using it, your skin may start returning to its texture prior to using the anti-aging product. Hence, you may have to continue using the product daily.
- You may have side effects including rashes, irritation or redness. It is important to be aware of the ingredients contained in your anti-aging products and make sure you’re not allergic to any of them. In case the side effects are extreme, you must immediately stop using the product and consult Grace Skincare Clinic dermatologist as soon as possible.
If you are concerned about skin aging, or if you use anti-aging products, please call Grace Skincare Clinic today for a consultation with our Dermatologist to review your products and to understand your skincare routine, so that you can have the supreme confidence in knowing you are doing your best to retain your youthful and healthy skin.

0-09-2019 "I would love to thank Dr. Hun Kim Thao and her amazing staffs for helping me through a skin improving journey over an almost year while I was staying in HCM. I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor
Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done. Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!
Ms Nana, HCMC, tourist

Alexis Linh Ly, HCMC- Business Owner
The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!
Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor
I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend. I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao instructed and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.
as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
