A few weeks ago, we asked you on Instagram to send us your most pressing, burning Artistry questions, which we then sent to our team of Artistry scientists to answer. Here’s a closer look at what our scientists came back with after reading the most popular questions:
Q: Do you have a product that can improve vitiligo skin problems? @gianikol
A: Please refer to your dermatologist or doctor for specific skin concerns.
Q: I have big pores on my face (cheeks). What should I have to use to get rid of it?@gurjeetmanpreet
A: We recommend the Artistry Intensive Skincare Skin Refinisher! It uses optical diffusers to provide smooth, soft focus skin, instantly, and is clinically tested to reduce the appearance of pores by 62% in four weeks. Use as part of your treatment step every morning and night.
Q: If we have the YouthXtend system, when do we put on the Vitamin C Serum? @j_e_n_di
A: For your skincare routine, you should cleanse, tone, treat (use the Vitamin C serum here), and then moisturize!
Q: I would like to know the best product for keeping Adult Acne in control. @saru_ssk
A: The essentials by Artistry™ botanical skincare line is designed specifically for skin concerns, like oil and acne control and light hydration. Use as part of a good skincare regimen (cleanse, tone, treat, moisturize) every morning and night.
Q: What’s the best eye cream for a 30-something girl like me? @marole2000
A: We recommend the Artistry Youth Xtend Enriching Eye Cream! It’s a rich and deeply moisturizing wrinkle cream that targets early signs of aging in the eye area. In only two weeks, 93% of women experienced a clinical reduction in the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, including crow’s feet!
Q:What products do you recommend to get rid of blackheads/whiteheads? @angelahmus
A: Blackheads and whiteheads form when pores become clogged with dead skin cells and excessive skin oil production. We recommend our essentials by Artistry anti-acne pore refresher and anti-acne gel. They have salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, which helps to unclog pores through gentle exfoliation by lifting dead skin surface cells and reducing skin oiliness. Use these products 2X per day after gentle cleansing, and under make-up. Add the Artistry Signature Select Purifying Mask into your skincare routine (2X per week) too! It helps deeply cleanse facial skin, control skin surface oils and unclog pores with kaolin clay.
Q: Why aren’t our products certified by the FDA? @fca_joseramos
A: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve or review cosmetic products prior to being available for sale in the U.S., so there are no approvals or certifications for Artistry products or any other cosmetic products. The FDA expects companies to market safe products and have documentation to support product safety and benefits. The FDA does require companies to report severe adverse events and voluntarily remove an unsafe product from the market. For products that do not have safety testing, the FDA requires a Black Box Warning on the front label of a cosmetic product stating WARNING: THE SAFETY OF THIS PRODUCT HAS NOT BEEN DETERMINED.
Q: Why should I choose Artistry besides another brand? @jeffret_742
A: The Artistry™ portfolio features skincare, makeup, and holistic beauty solutions that are infused with nature, perfected by science, and personalized for each woman’s individual needs. Exclusive formulations reflect the global research, development, and quality assurance conducted by a network of more than 900 scientists and international skin health doctors from leading universities. The brand has analyzed over 32,000 faces from all over the world to develop product solutions based on each woman’s unique skin needs.
Q: Why is Artistry skincare more expensive than other brands? How to convince people about Artistry? @khodizahsabar
A: Because they are made to a higher standard. Product quality, superior ingredients, design excellence and rigorous testing ensure our products are pure, safe, effective, and durable, which can sometimes result in a higher price than our competitor’s products.
Q: Is the Artistry skincare line hypoallergenic? Can people with sensitive/acne prone skin use it? @96kare_bear
A: All Artistry products have been thoroughly tested on groups of individuals with sensitive skin, with no evidence of an allergic response or extreme irritation. However, no testing program can guarantee all individuals will not react. Please refer to your dermatologist or doctor for specific skin concerns.
Q: What is the inspiration to the creation of a new product? @meganpof
A: Our large Consumer Product Research Group helps determine the leading Global Consumer beauty needs for women. This group helps identify cosmetic trends, new products, colors, fragrances, and more. Our Artistry formulators look to raw material suppliers and trade shows to stay on trend with the latest skin care technologies in the personal care industry. Unique packaging can also drive product development and influence consumer purchases. Sometimes advances in Beauty happen simply from the creativity of our formulators in the lab – and then our marketing groups run with it!
Q: How do the new personalized serums provide individualized treatment? @_devonthompson
A: Most all serums on the market treat one skin concern at a time, like wrinkles, or brightening, or hydration. Artistry Signature Select™ Personalized Serum is the first completely customizable treatment that lets you choose up to three skin concerns to address in one effective treatment, like wrinkles AND brightening AND hydration!
Q: Which are more effective: topical or ingestible beauty products? @atl001
A: Topicals (like creams or serums) and ingestibles (like supplements) work together to support skin structure and function. Topicals provide quicker, more immediate skin support from the outside in. Topical skin care regimens usually include application on the sensitive skin of our face, neck, and décolletage. Ingestibles provide a longer, more sustained support of skin from the inside out. An ingestible functions though the blood stream—supporting the skin of our entire body. The best solution is to use both topicals and ingestibles to support skin in complementary ways.
