WHY DO THEY SAY SENSITIVE SKIN
AGES FASTER THAN ORDINARY SKIN?

The loss of complexion uniformity, a key problem associated with the aging of sensitive skin

Accelerated skin aging is caused by “micro-inflammatory” stress, which is more common in sensitive skin. Although imperceptible, it plays a major role in the onset of wrinkles and the loss of firmness by contributing to the deterioration of the fibers that make up the dermis.

In addition, a recent study has shown that, regardless of its age, sensitive skin is characterized by a stronger tendency to redness than normal skin. Over time, this redness accentuates the natural loss of complexion uniformity, which comes on top of wrinkles and lack of firmness.

VITAMIN C/RETINOL:
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE TWO ANTI-AGING ACTIVE INGREDIENTS?

Two benchmark anti-aging active ingredients that work in synergy

Vitamin C and Retinol are two benchmark active ingredients used in dermatology for their anti-aging action. Retinol has demonstrated its undeniable effectiveness on aging. It has a spectacular surface action: skin texture becomes finer, irregularities fade, and wrinkles are smoothed.

It works the same magic deep down: cells are regenerated and collagen and elastin production is increased. As for vitamin C, it is a powerful antioxidant that also has pro-collagen and blood-vessel strengthening properties. Its plus point? It fills wrinkles, firms the skin, and evens out the complexion.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO COMBINE THE ACTION OF SEVERAL ANTI-AGING ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
WHEN YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN?

Above all, aim for efficacy and respect your sensitive skin

As for all skin types, it is a good idea to combine the actions of different active agents in order to obtain optimal results. But if you have sensitive skin, it is essential that you use formulas tailored to its needs.

With Retinol, sensitive skin can at last enjoy the benefits of a full routine for a reinforced anti-aging corrective action on all signs of aging. Redermic [R]  corrects the clinical signs of aging, such as deeper wrinkles, the early onset of age spots, thicker skin, and an irregular skin texture. And Redermic [C] reinforces its action on wrinkles, loss of firmness, and uniformity.

YOUR DIET HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH HOW YOUR SKIN AGES.

FALSE

CLEANSING IS KEY IN
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.
