Our skin is a dynamic organ that changes not only with the seasons and environment but also shows changes in physiology from day to night, we call these distinct shifts in biological activity, circadian rhythms.
We know that our skin excretes less sebum, loses more water, is warmer, has a more acidic pH, and repairs itself more at night than during the day. Basically, while you are sleeping your skin gets a reprieve from the trauma of the day and the body starts its repair processes get a chance to catch up.
You can take advantage of your skins natural circadian rhythms and start treating ageing skin.
We know that wrinkles, fine lines and dehydration are the biggest concerns for most people as their skin ages. Years of exposure to UV rays contributes to photo ageing which includes degradation of our structural collagen along with a decline in hyaluronic acid resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. Dehydration is compounded by the fact that our lipid barrier layer diminishes with age and is not replenished as quickly.
Ideally, in order to restore the health of the skin, we have to address all of these issues. We need to use water attracting humectants, skin softening emollients, lipid barrier reinforcements and collagen stimulating peptides. And in order to optimize treatment of the skin, we need to capitalize on the skins natural circadian rhythms and infuse the skin with a super concentrated dose of nourishing and conditioning agents.
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum is a technologically advanced treatment serum that deeply nourishes skin overnight and gives lacklustre skin a fresh, dewy appearance. It is a nourishing treatment serum that works as you sleep to help repair skin tissue. This essential oil based peptide enriched serum stimulates collagen, helping to firm skin and fight signs of ageing while stimulating production of the skins most powerful moisture magnet, hyaluronic acid.
Includes antioxidant rich Argan oil and Brown seaweed that work to fight free radicals and control enzymes that degrade skin as a result of daytime UV exposure while restoring the protective barrier lipid layer. Vitamin C enriched Rosehip seed oil contributes to this protective barrier while a natural Rose retinoid helps reduce the appearance of ageing skin.
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum provides cell nourishment and protection while you sleep. It not only helps scavenge free radicals that assault the skin leading to premature ageing, it helps reinforce protective barrier lipids while controlling MMPs and fortifying much needed collagen in the deeper layers of the skin.
Why a serum?
Serums are super concentrated formulas based on either water or oil. They are often referred to as concentrates and contain a higher dosage of biologically active substances than their moisturiser counterparts. This means quicker more effective penetration of actives to address skin care issues.
