Upgrade your skincare steps with retinol
Retinol has incredible transformative qualities for a whole myriad of skin issues but it is especially helpful when used to tackle hyperpigmentation. Doubling as a pigmentation-fader and anti-aging hero, retinol is a derivative of vitamin Aand it’s youth-boosting skills qualify it to take center stage in any skincare routine. It boosts elastin and collagen for high cell turnover to reveal new, revived skin with a smoother, more even texture. This makes retinol particularly helpful at fading scarring.

The first rule of sunscreen is...sunscreen should never be underestimated. It plays a huge role in our overall skin health and it’s especially important when it comes to preventing hyperpigmentation. In short, it prevents the build-up of photodamage that leads to brown spots and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which is the hyperpigmentation that follows after acne and leaves scars. Our skin cells respond to UV light by producing more melanin as self-protection.SPF blocks the light that injures our skin cells. All pigment (including a tan)is a sign of skin damage and injury and we can’t ever get a ‘fresh start’ with our skin once it is exposed to the sun. This is why it is super important to make sure each day our skin is prepped with SPF.
The skin work starts with the ultimate skincare nutrient. Antioxidants are compounds that combine to neutralise reactive oxygen species preventing oxidative damage to cells and tissues. C antioxidants are clinically proven to improve the health of your skin. It is the foundation to your best skin ever combined with retinol. Your first product after cleansing is vital for protection, prevention, and ultimately treating your current skin issues.
C Antioxidant Glow builds resilience and quality to the cellular level of your skin. A "serum highlighter" filled with 30% antioxidant power that treats and protects the skin. It does not clog pores, suit acenic skin, rosacea, pigmentation, or the inflammatory scarring left by acne or breakouts.
Turns out, there is some truth to getting your eight hours of beauty sleep. After all, your skin repairs itself at night and therefore has maximum breakout fighting potential. Your cell turnover (out with the old and in with the new) issue is supercharged when you sleep - this is a time when collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin are also built. However, the less sleep we have, the less we produce. From pillow mists and eye masks to sleepy teas and night creams, add some sleep boosters into your nighttime routine to soothe you into a peaceful slumber and arise with a more nourished, well-rested complexion.
