Vogue "The Best Products & Treatments For Hyperpigmentation"
Sporteluxe "The Best Smoothing Skincare Product That Actually Works"
The body produces less collagen and of lower quality as we age, whilst UV-rays, environmental factors, free radicals, and many of our daily habits accelerate the breakdown of existing collagen. The skin, in particular, is made up of 75-80% collagen, but after the age of 25, collagen synthesis reduces at a rate of 1.5% a year. At the age of 45, collagen levels may have fallen by as much as 30%, and around the 60-year mark, we stop producing collagen totally.
Retinol is one of the few potent anti-aging ingredients that is widely recognized. It stimulates the production of type I, type III and type IV collagen, elastin and epidermal growth factor receptors, and thicken the dermis, thereby smoothing wrinkles, firming skin and tightening pores. What’s better, it also fights acne and fades hyperpigmentation!
A cult favorite, KLUR Stellar Restoration Corrective Complex is enriched with 1% Liposomal Retinol that is encapsulated, and time-released so that that active ingredient can penetrate deep into the skin in a highly stable, protected, gentle manner and is slowly released to cells over time.
The watery, fast-acting, multi-corrective formula is also infused with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Vitamin E, as well Salicylic Acid, MSM, and prized botanicals including but not limited to Gotu Kola, White Tea, Arnica and Dandelion to provide skin cells with a wide array of vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, and phytonutrients to calm inflammation, correct imperfections, improve surface clarity and smooth the appearance of uneven skin texture.
Used overnight, each application nutrifies skin cells, providing the ideal environment for the rejuvenation and stabilization of reactionary skin, and thus, encouraging a more youthful radiant complexion.
