HOW OUR ENVIRONMENT "SWITCHES OFF"
THE MECHANISMS OF YOUTHFUL SKIN

duration time 1 min read

Skin constantly interacts with environmental factors, adapting its activity: deep down, environmental aggressors trigger the "off switch" in skin cells responsible for maintaining healthy and youthful tissue. The result? Skin loses its firmness. Accentuated wrinkles set in.

FENDING OFF ENVIRONMENTAL ATTACKS
TO LIBERATE SKIN'S ANTI-AGING RESOURCES

The most innovative new expertise in anti-aging is known as corrective protection. The premise is simple: a comprehensive, active multi-shield to neutralize the very mechanics of environmental aging, freeing up skin's own energy to maintain its youthful feel and appearance.

AT THE BASIS OF CORRECTIVE PROTECTION,
AN ACTIVE ENVIRONMENTAL MULTI-SHIELD

Only the most advanced shield could offer such protection against environmental aging.

  • Anti-long UVA and UVB: to fight sun-induced age spots.
  • Anti-oxidant: to counteract accentuated wrinkles thanks to superpotent natural anti-oxidant Carnosine, which boosts the metabolism of fibroblasts, skin's collagen makers.
  • Anti-pollution: an anti-adhesion texture to prevent from particles adhesion and avoid free radical production.

Actively protected against environmental attacks, skin is no longer overwhelmed by environmental aggressors, and the corrective efficiency is reinforced. Wrinkles, age spots, graying and dullness are all progressively reduced as skin is free to channel its energy into maintaining healthy, youthful tissue.

CLEANSING IS KEY IN E
YOUR ANTI-AGEING RITUAL.

TRUE

Cleansing removes not only make-up but all impurities accumulated throughout the day, such as pollution, sebum, sweat. Skincare products are most effective on clean skin. Without this crucial step, impurities would clog the pores and suffocate the skin, preventing the active ingredients contained in your skincare product from doing their job.

TIREDNESS CAN SHOW ON
THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES.

TRUE

With tiredness or age, blood and lymph microcirculation around the eyes may slow. The very thin skin around the eye contour readily reveals the marks of poor vascularization or inadequate lymph drainage. This is what provokes the appearance of signs of tiredness, such as shadows or puffiness.

THE SUN IS YOUR
SKIN'S BEST FRIENEMY.

TRUE

Multiple environmental aging factors stem from the very energy source that gives us light and life: the sun. The effects of UVB have been known for decades: sunburn and skindamage. But UVB is just one facet of sun-induced aging. Present all year round, even in cloudy weather, UVA and infrared rays penetrate deep within the skin, degrading its essential building blocks.
