Top 3 ingredients for irresistible summer skin

Knowing that you are a skincare lover, we can safely guess that you are also a sunscreen enthusiast! Did you know that certain skincare ingredients can actually help sunscreens do their job, while contributing to better skin during summer?

Read on to learn more about the essential ingredients to have in your summer skincare routine for the ultimate glow. 

VITAMIN C

A life saviour, it fends off the common cold, as well as illuminating and toning the complexion with additional antioxidant benefits. Less commonly known, it is also the most important vitamin involved in the synthesis of collagen; so when thinking vitamin C don’t think immediate radiance alone, think also long term firmness.

We like to use this vitamin as a more complex molecule combining L-ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbyl phosphate in a high concentration to obtain a more stable form that breaks down slower when exposed to air.

Try Age Intelligence Radiance Booster - an award-winning booster with 10% Vitamin C that illuminates and tones the skin, while reversing photo ageing. 

ALPHA-ARBUTIN

Arbutin is a glycoside phyto-chemical extracted from bearberries, among many other medicinal plants that also contain it. Applied topically, it strongly inhibits tyrosinase and thus prevents the darkening of melanin.

We use it at the highest possible concentration of 2% as opposed to the standard concentration of less than 1% in our Age Intelligence Evenness Booster. Not photosensitizing, won’t trigger any inflammatory pathway!

NIACINAMIDE

Niacinamide, along with other benefits, helps to repair UV damage, but in contrast to antioxidants and some other vitamins, niacinamide is actually very stable in skincare formulations.

Try Age Intelligence Peace Booster - a gentle booster for senstive skin with 5% Niacinamide and 2% Tranexamic Acid that reduces redness, strengthens skin barrier and contributes to skin repair.

Do you have any of these ingredients in your routine already?
