LET LIGHT CEUTIC AND YOUR SKIN GET TO WORK AT NIGHT!
Skin cell turnover is essential to prevent against signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, age spots, dull complexion and other visible signs.
As we age, the natural renewal process slows down and causes significant changes to the structure of the epidermis: at around 20 years old, it may take up to 30 days to fully complete. Over the age of 50, it can take up to 45 days.
It is therefore important to incorporate targeted skincare products like Light Ceutic into your daily routine!
FIRST, LET’S UNDERSTAND OUR SKIN CHRONOBIOLOGY!
The circadian rhythm is a natural, internal process which responds to environmental factors over a 24-hour timeframe. It regulates our biological clock via the expression of different genes and has a strong influence on the proper functioning of our organs, including the skin. Skin chronobiology is the term used to describe the science that studies the skin’s natural rhythm.
The skin goes through various phases in the 24-hour cycle. Skin cells can detect changes in natural light and therefore react differently according to the time of day, from the switching on of circadian clock genes at first light to cell division and damage repair at night.
During the day the skin is essentially in a protection phase, defending itself from external aggressions such as pollution and UV rays, but at night it enters into a resting phase, during which it suffers less external stress.
The interphase is the start of a regeneration cycle when skin cells prepare for later cell division by obtaining nutrients and metabolizing them.
This division is known as mitosis, a key process which creates new cells in order to replace old, dead ones. It is a fundamental part of skin cell renewal.
WHAT IS SKIN CELL RENEWAL?
Skin cell renewal is a continuous process whereby new cells divide in the bottom (basal) layer of the epidermis and continue this division as they move up towards the top to form the skin layers. Exfoliating these dead skin cells stimulates the production of new cells.
Several factors may impact this skin turnover process including diet, age, lack of sleep, hormones, stress, disease, and sun exposure.
WHY IS SKIN CELL RENEWAL IMPORTANT?
Skin cell turnover is essential for maintaining the primary function of the skin as an intact organ which protects your body from dehydration. It also prevents against signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, age spots, dull complexion, and other visible signs. The body’s natural exfoliation process also helps to prevent against the development of acne. This may occur when dead cells are not removed from the skin’s surface, leading to potential bacterial infections and clogged pores.
As we age the natural renewal process slows down and causes significant changes to the structure of the epidermis: at around 20 years old, it may take up to 30 days to fully complete. Over the age of 50, it can take up to 45 days. It is therefore important to incorporate targeted skincare products into your daily routine; to let science get to work with your skin.
HOW TO STIMULATE THIS RENEWAL?
Skincare products that resurface the skin’s superficial layers and remove dead cells help to accelerate this process, particularly overnight. When the skin is resting, the cutaneous barrier is more permeable, enabling actives to better penetrate the skin whilst cell renewal is at its maximum.
Active ingredients such as glycolic acid exfoliate skin, stimulate the renewal process and enhance the natural regeneration cycle overnight.
The Light Ceutic formula contains a powerful combination of acids to offer multiple benefits, including a more harmonized and brighter complexion. The skin’s permeable barrier at night enables it to offer maximum efficacy, helping maintain cell turnover for healthy skin.
Light Ceutic gently exfoliates the skin and reduces the appearance of pigment spots, thanks to the combined action of glycolic acid, phytic acid and vitamin C, allowing the skin to naturally regenerate overnight to restore natural radiance and visibly harmonize overall complexion!
WHAT ARE LIGHT CEUTIC FORMULA ACTIVE INGREDIENTS?
5.6% GLYCOLIC ACID
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) derived from fruit acids and known for its keratolytic action. It easily penetrates the skin to boost collagen production and stimulate cell renewal by destroying the links that bind dead cells together.
The plus: by exfoliating the skin, it facilitates the penetration of the other actives.
2% PHYTIC ACID
Lightening and antioxidant agent that has a synergic action to brighten complexion when used with glycolic acid.
Potent antioxidant, obtained by vectorizing L-Ascorbic acid using silanol technology, providing protection against the free radicals responsible for photoaging. Improves skin firmness and elasticity and activates collagen synthesis.
LET’S FOCUS ON THESE POWERFUL ACIDS!
