Investing in your skin’s never been easier…
From Exuviance, we recommend (highly!) the new Optilight Daily Prep – a cleanser that cleans, purifies and gently exfoliates, and Optilight Brightening Serum – formulated to brighten, exfoliate and target uneven skin tone. Both are brightening boons for those who need to minimise the appearance of discolouration from ageing or overexposure to the elements. R610 and R1100.
Also look out for the OptiLight Dark Spot Minimizer with SFP 25 – apply before you go into the sun to prevent new dark spots and signs of photodamage. R990 from dermastore.co.za
From SVR – Sebiaclear Micro-Peel – an unclogging and smoothing renewal water that targets open pores, spots and blackheads, all without drying the skin. R398, from riekiemedaesthetic.co.za, absoluteskin.co.za or shopfomo.com
NeoStrata … your skin will thank you!
We’re massive NeoStrata fans, so when we heard about the new NeoStrata Resurface Glycolic Renewal Serum, our skin did a quick little jump for joy. You probably know glycolic acid is known to be the workhorse of the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) family, which is what those looking to really retexture and refine their skin’s surface need. It’s the key ingredient in this new serum, which speeds up cell turnover rate and visibly improves skin radiance, texture, and tone. There are also ingredients to exfoliate, and an antioxidant that helps prevent and reverse the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores, and roughness. Why use it? It targets a smoother, radiant complexion, has a high potency AHA-antioxidant blend, and is formulated for improved overall skin quality. Tip: You may have initial flaking, tingling, or irritation to the skin (for some, this may be part of the normal resurfacing process), which generally improves as the skin gets used to the treatment. And it could increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. R830.
