As we get older, skin’s structure weakens. Imagine a brand new knitted jumper - it is woven tight and neat, the jumper is smooth and smart. Yet, once the jumper has been through the washing machine a few times, the woven material begins to unravel - with pulls and bobbles making the knitwear appear shabby. This is similar to your skin - when you are young its structure is tight, neat and skin looks supple. As you get older, the structure begins to lose its integrity.
Changes in skins integrity can lead to more than wrinkles. In fact, as you get older, you might notice a change in the colour of your complexion. This can be caused by a number of factors. The one thing that every type of hyperpigmentation has in common is the irregular production of melanin (the brown or reddish pigment in skin.)
The good news is, Biolumin C Serum is the perfect treatment for the following types of hyperpigmentation:
1. Defends against UV exposure
The amount of melanin in our skin is determined by genetics - but exposure to UV radiation stimulates the production of additional melanin, eventually resulting in hyperpigmentation (often referred to as “age spots”). 90% of people have sun-induced age spots by the time they’re 60; these are harmless, but they contribute to the overall appearance of ageing. The good news is, Dermalogica’s Biolumin C Serum features a clever Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex that uses 2 new generation forms of vitamin C to brighten age spots dramatically.
What does UV exposure look like?
Age spots or liver spots on the forehead, cheeks, hands and other areas frequently exposed to the sun. Vitamin C offers photo-protection as it limits the damage from UV induced Free Radicals. In fact, an SPF only blocks out 55% of FR’s from UV so a Vit C serum under SPF offers optimum defence from this key skin ager.
2. Protects Against Pollution
Environmental pollutants like ozone can actually deplete skin’s naturally occurring antioxidants, leading to free radical damage - and suggesting a strong correlation between air pollutants and skin pigmentation. Pollution particles are extremely tiny, 400 x smaller than a skin pore! They get in easily and trigger inflammation which leads to free radical production. Due to its high antioxidant capacity, the Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex in Dermalogica’s Biolumin C Serum neutralises free radicals and so defends skin against environment. A must for city dwellers.
What does pollution pigmentation look like?
Variable: may appear as irregular brown patches on the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip, chin or jawline.
3. Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
When skin is irritated or inflamed such as through injury or spots, melanin, our skin’s colour pigment is stimulated as part of the wound healing process. Over time, if the skin is protected from further provocation, the condition may resolve by itself and darker pigment fades. Biolumin’s Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex interferes with melanin production and so can balance the overproduction of it, evening out skin tone. vitamin C also aids in wound healing - this is great for breakout prone skin.
What does post inflammatory hyperpigmentation look like?
Darker patches of pigments, may be redder in appearance on lighter skin tones. Think acne scarring. If you relate to any of the things we’ve talked about grab a free sample or full sized product from our Jersey Beauty Co website.
