When a new antioxidant-loaded formula comes onto the skincare scene, our interest is immediately piqued. So, when one of our favourite dermatological skincare brands announced they were launching a Vitamin C serum, we couldn't wait to hear more. We sat down with the brand's Education Executive, Victoria Schofield to understand more about the product and what we can expect in terms of results.
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is undoubtedly one of the most well-known antioxidants in skincare, and in terms of its abilities, is a true powerhouse.
Scientifically proven to tackle the biological processes that lead to skin ageing, it's one of the best antioxidants to tackle fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation caused by free radicals.
If you're not familiar with free radicals, we're here to explain. They're essentially environmental aggressors which attack the skin's cells and cause them to deplete in proteins like collagen, which causes premature ageing. UV, pollution and our lifestyle choices like diet, smoking and stress are all contributing factors, which is why it's so important to adopt a healthy lifestyle alongside a healthy skincare routine.
We do know though that sometimes lack of sleep, poor diet and stress are sometimes unavoidable, so in that case, Dermalogica's new BioLumin-C Serum is here to help.
What is the new Dermalogica BioLumin-C Serum?
Dermalogica's new BioLumin-C Serum is a revolutionary formula representing a new paradigm in Vitamin C efficacy. Whilst Vitamin C has been used for years in skincare products, Dermalogica decided to take on the challenge of using new technology and research to harness the full potential of Vitamin C.
It combines an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex with advanced bio-technology to travel deeper into the skin cells rather than sitting on the surface. In addition, it helps to optimise the skin's own defence system to brighten from within, making the complexion appear more luminous, healthy, clear and firm.
Why do I need to use a Vitamin C serum?
In today's world, skin damage is a daily reality. In fact, as much as 50% of skin ageing comes from external factors such as UV, pollution and lifestyle choices.
Vitamin C is proven to fight the stresses that cause this damage and Dermalogica's new BioLumin-C Serum represents a new generation of Vitamin C serums that works in synergy with the skin for firmer and a more radiant complexion.
How does it work?
The serum uses advanced bio-technology, which fuses 2 forms of ultra-stable Vitamin C with Palmitoyl Tripeptide, lactic acid, Sophora Japonica Flower and chia seed oil to fight oxidative stress and the appearance of skin ageing.
Plus, it melts into the skin beautifully to leave a soft and non-sticky finish behind.
To use, simply dispense a few drops of the serum onto the skin and massage in after cleansing and toning. We recommend using it with the Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist Toner, which shields the skin against dryness and free radicals.
