I am really starting to notice the effects of aging on my skin. In fact the other week I posted on social media that I was considering giving up smiling because I was so fed up with the changes I saw happening. Biotherm has developed SKIN.BEST which is the first instant correcting and youth-protecting concentrate to target early skins of aging and acknowledges that the signs of aging are most apparent when we are making facial expressions. The wrinkles around our eyes, the deepening nasolabial folds, and the one that has been increasingly driving me nuts; smile lines. For me I find it’s not only the smile lines but the total change in appearance and texture of my skin in that area. Biotherm is addressing our “aging in motion”.
The key ingredients in the line are:
Astaxanthin – Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and Astaxanthin rich H.Pluvialis algae extract helps protect keratinocytes from UVA-induced stress which decreases the production of free radicals. It has a longer potency period than most antioxidants like Vitamin C or E meaning it can handle multiple free radicals simultaneously without becoming toxic at high doses. Studies have shown it to be 500-1000x more powerful than Vitamin E and much more powerful than other carotenoids such as lutein, lycopene, and B-carotene.
Spirulina – Spirulina is categorized as one of the greatest energy source on earth being one of the most well balanced sources of nutrition on the plant. It is comprised of at least 60% vegetable protein which means it has double the protein concentration of soy. Now we aren’t going to eat our SKIN.BEST skincare so why is this important? Well the same way it provides vital energy as a food source it also acts as a cellular energy booster to the skin when applied as well as providing cellular protection against free radicals.
The two products I have been testing from the line are the SKIN.BEST Serum-In-Cream and the SKIN.BEST Day Cream SPF 15 for Normal Combination Skin (there is also one available for Dry Skin).
The SKIN.BEST Serum-In-Cream ($62 CAD/30 ml) provides the efficacy of a serum with the added comfort of a cream. It moisturizes and softens while giving a blurring and mattifying effect on the skin.
The SKIN.BEST Day Cream SPF 15 for Normal Combination Skin ($65 CAD/50 ml) offers the antioxidant youth protecting benefits of the SKIN.BEST actives in a protective cream. There is also a more richly nourishing cream available for Dry Skin also with SPF 15.
If you are looking for more sun protection you could try the SKIN.BEST CC Cream SPF 25 ($40 CAD/30 ml) available in Light and Medium that offers colour correction.
SKIN.BEST Serum-In-Cream, Day Cream SPF 15, and CC Cream are available now. There will also be SKIN.BEST Night and Eye formulations coming out this Fall.
