#SKINFORMED / Hyperpigmentation and first wrinkles

Diana T., 34 years old 

Skin type : Normal

Main challenges with the skin : non-inflammatory acne (closed comedones and blackheads), brown spots (from the sun, pregnancy, hormonal contraceptives...), superficial wrinkles

Describe your skin : what do you want to work on?

" I want to get rid of spots during the winter and learn to prevent the appearance of new ones, and along the way to act on the first wrinkles that have appeared. I have established a normal skin barrier, recently started with Architect and I see progress, but I want to act more specifically on spots." 

Skin analysis: hyperpigmentation

Recommended routine :

Morning In the evening
Superb C Architect or Lumion
Solar I Lunar
Hyperdew 2x a week

Just a few cleverly arranged products are enough to simultaneously treat all three problems that Diana mentioned: hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and clogged pores.

Photoaging and its effect on the skin

The first and basic product of any routine that aims to treat existing and prevent new signs of premature aging is a product with a high protection factor that protects against a wide spectrum of UVA and UVB radiation. Namely, in addition to chronological aging (which we cannot influence), there is photoaging, which we recognize on the face in the form of prematurely formed lines and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation changes. Photoaging occurs as a result of damage caused by the action of UVA and UVB radiation on the skin. UV rays cause damage, the accumulation of which leads to unwanted aesthetic changes on the skin, as well as more serious health consequences.

In order to maximally prevent such changes and keep the skin youthful, it is necessary to use a protective factor daily and in an adequate amount. We formulated Solar I SPF30 fluid keeping in mind the practical need for daily light hydration that will not contribute to clogging pores, while at the same time protecting the skin from the sun.

Ideally, Solar I is combined with a powerful antioxidant serum in the morning routine. Superba C contains 10% vitamin C derivatives, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, vitamin E and ferulic acid. Sodium ascorbyl phosphate was chosen because it does not make the skin more sensitive to the sun, so it can be used in the summer, and it also acts as a melanin inhibitor and helps reduce the mottled skin tone and enhances the photoprotective properties of the protective factor. The quick-absorbing, watery texture is perfect for a light layering routine.

In this case, evening care can be a little more complex, but still minimalistic and not take a lot of time. The combination of antioxidants and signal peptides from Lunar cream is an effective way to quickly restore freshness to skin with visible signs of aging, improve tone and lift skin contours. In addition, its silky texture moisturizes and nourishes normal to dry skin. Architect can be combined with Lunar for a potent effect on the texture and skin tone, while Hyperdew occasionally in the evening routine additionally strengthens the barrier while working to even out the skin tone.

Chemical exfoliation for an even complexion

Chemical peels are key to the visible repair of skin tone and texture, as they remove superficial dead skin cells, soften rough skin, purify clogged pores, reduce hyperpigmentation irregularities, and enable better absorption of other routine products. We recommend using a chemical peel like our Lumion 2-3 times a week with a cream instead of Architect. Architect can generally be combined with potent products, but we advise that these two products be used interchangeably at first. People who are just starting to use acids will see results in a very short time in the form of a smoother texture and a fresher appearance, while remediation of deep-rooted hyperpigmentation spots requires time and patience with responsible exposure to the sun. In the case of intense hyperpigmentation that has not been treated for a long time and the skin has not been protected from the sun, additional professional treatment will be required in consultation with a dermatologist.
