Every day, various environmental triggers challenge the structure of your skin from inside and out – speeding up the aging process and resulting in uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Granted, skin can fight back, but as years go by, it needs help.

Latest research shows that Vitamin C can come to the rescue, helping skin defend itself from oxidative stress. According to the Telegraph, Vitamin C was the most sought after skincare product in 2017. There’s just one problem: many topical Vitamin C products on the market contain unstable ingredients and may not get to the right place to provide effective protection.

To address this, Dermalogica developed a high-performance BioLumin-C serum to use all the benefits of Vitamin C with advanced bio-technology to deliver it where it’s needed. This formula, created to make sure that Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, one of the most stable forms of Vitamin C, is absorbed, compared to most other products (including those formulated at higher concentrations), reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightens and firms skin.

Other ingredients also sound appealing: lactic acid is known for its light peeling effect to accelerate cell turnover, Chia seed oil has useful hydrating properties and fights free radicals, while Japanese pagoda tree flower extract calms skin. Ascorbyl Methylsilanol Pectinate protects against free radical damage and helps even skin tone. The serum is formulated to both prevent and reduce already occurring free radical damage.

Dermalogica’s products are sold in more than 80 countries worldwide, and this particular serum is available in Malta since 14 June.
