Why am i so excited??
The quest for healthy glowing skin is ongoing and Vitamin C formulas are high on the list of solutions, but what if you could get instantly brighter and more hydrated skin from your moisturiser? I am so excited about the BioLumin-C Gel Moisturiser. It is a unique, weightless gel texture with advanced Vitamin C technology to brighten skin instantly and over time. Not only that, this innovative formula renews skin for a natural glow and hydrates for more luminous skin. You can now take a selfie without a ring light 😉
What’s behind dull skin?
Many of us suffer with dull skin, no matter what our skin type is. Here are some of the main factors that contribute to dull skin:
1). Slower cell renewal causes dead skin build-up and results in a flaky rough texture. Our natural cell renewal process slows down with age and a lack of exfoliation causes further build-up. This results in skin that lacks moisture and an uneven surface from which light cannot reflect evenly, leading to that dull, lacklustre appearance.2). A compromised barrier causes moisture to escape and results in dryness and dehydration. This may be a genetic issue for some, or caused by incorrect product use such as drying cleansers, stripping toners or inadequate moisturiser. Our skin also becomes compromised from weather and climate changes, plus internal health, and with the natural ageing process.3). Free radical damage or oxidative stress causes skin cell damage and leads to moisture loss, irritation, and pigmentation. Free radicals are all around us and generated by UV light and pollution as well as internal stress in the body. Having damaged and/or unevenly pigmented skin leads to overall dullness of the skin.
Skin brightening Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant with multiple skin benefits. It firms, brightens and increases your skin’s natural defences from environmental elements that can cause premature skin ageing. There is a challenge though, as Vitamin C is notoriously tricky to formulate as it is highly unstable, which means it gets used up or ‘oxidised’ within the bottle. It’s highly susceptible to degradation by light, heat and air. You may have noticed your Vitamin C serum turn brown or start to smell funky, this is a result of the Vitamin C oxidising. The problem here is that you’re not getting the potential benefits in the skin where you need it, so you might be dissatisfied with the results on your skin.
Dermalogica looked at the need to stabilise Vitamin C in their formulas to ensure efficacy and achieve noticeable skin results. They used two forms of highly stable Vitamin C within their BioLumin-C products. They carried out clinical studies comparing their Vitamin C products to a leading competitors’ which showed that Dermalogica’sformula delivered 3 x more brightening and 3 x more Vitamin C into the skin.
New technologies for Vitamin C
With the launch of BioLumin-C Gel Moisturizer, Dermalogica have taken their ultra-stable Vitamin C complex to the next level by enhancing it with biotechnology. This technology recycles or reactivates the Vitamin C, increasing its potency and further enhances its penetration into the skin! This delivers brighter skin instantly and over time.
