Cosmopolitan "Best Natural Hydrating Serum" "Best Niacinamide Serum for Bright, Glowy, Even Skin"
Not only does dehydrated skin feel rough and tight, it is also prone to irritation and redness, while fine and dry lines look apparent. In order for the complex skin structure to stay hydrated, elastic and youthful, it is necessary to use a blend of ingredients to target different skin cells via multiple pathways.
KLUR Immersion Serum Concentrate, an ultra-hydrating serum, assimilates to the skin on contact, offering immediate moisture balance and long-lasting hydration. Enriched with 10 highly hydrating ingredients including beta-glucan, as well as 3 types of peptides, niacinamide, panthenol, vitamin C, and a combination of botanical extracts, each droplet binds to cells, delivering hydration, antioxidants, vitaminns, and essential nutrients to the skin.
These nutrients work in synergy to help support barrier strength, balance and plump skin, while improving moisture retention–without the risk of congestion. With regular use, skin is steadily replenished with what it needs to achieve a healthier, more elastic, consistently hydrated state.
Formulated specifically to:
Hydrate and lock in moisture
Soothe and repair skin
Protect collagen and elastin
Stimulate collagen synthesis
Smooth wrinkles and fine lines
Fight free radicals
Brighten skin and reduce acne
Apply 1-2 pumps to clean wet skin allow for complete absorption. Avoid the eye area.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-37 - this peptide works with aquaporins, a protein naturally found in the skin, to regulate the way water moves between the basal layers of the epidermis and the stratum corneum to improve overall hydration, and balance adequate hydration between different skin layers, thereby alleviating signs of dehydration and dryness. In vitro studies, Acetyl Hexapeptide-37 has also shown to boost the synthesis of collagen I by 61%. This means tighter, firmer skin, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 - acting as a cellular messenger, studies have shown that Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 can significantly stimulates the regeneration of collagen fibers in the dermis and the production of hyaluronic acid in the skin, which helps reduce wrinkles, as well as tighten skin by attracting moisture to the epidermis. In addition, it reduces inflammatory cytokines, known as interleukins, which in turn, reduces the cumulative damage that UV radiation, pollution, stress, and other pro-inflammatory factors bring to the skin. Studies have shown Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 reduces interleukin production by 86% after UV exposure. It has also been shown to lighten pigmentation, and even skin tone. Some studies suggest it may help in reducing the appearance of rosacea.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 - a messenger peptide that directly stimulates collagen I, glycosaminoglycan (chains of polysaccharides linked to a central protein in the dermis of the skin, for example, hyaluronic acid), and fibrillogenesis, and reinforces the epidermis. Result are similar to retinoic acid but without the irritations. Many studies and clinical trials have found that applying it twice daily for at least four weeks can result in statistically significant reductions in wrinkle length, depth and skin roughness. It also helps decrease the appearance of pores, and help the skin retain moisture.
Niacinamide - brightens the skin and reduces hyperpigmentation, as well as increases collagen production in the dermis, normalize collagen, and inhibits glycation, ultimately reducing and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, as well as the ability in restoring the skin’s barrier function and regulating sebum, making it an excellent choice for inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea and eczema.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate - brightens skin, fights the effects of free radicals, improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and redness, reduces acne.
