Your skin has quite different needs based on the season, so we’ve curated our top picks to give you a surge of skin radiance this Autumn.
Hi there, my name is Nicola, I am the brand director of Aesthetics Rx and the creator of all our new formulations. I thought I’d drop by to talk about why seasonal skincare updates can be beneficial. There’s so much information out there, I can understand how it can be difficult to comb through it all and extract the facts. We want to make it simple with no nonsense education.
Your skin may have quite different needs based on the season, the weather and environmental conditions it is exposed to. If you think about the function of your skin, it is the body’s barrier mechanism, protecting against the invasion of unwanted pathogens and substances that could be harmful to the finely tuned function of our tissues and internal systems play in keeping us healthy. It is not only important to keep the skin performing optimally from that perspective, but also for our own confidence. There’s nothing quite like the confidence of a healthy glowing complexion. That in its purest essence is why I do what I do.
My ultimate goal is to help people feel good about themselves. A swap in of a few key products and seasonal specific ingredients can be highly beneficial. That’s why I have put together this Autumn skin bundle. These three products are my top skin prescription picks to add a surge of radiance post summer. The skin may have residual dehydration, photo damage and the resulting dullness of those two conditions, so for me, Autumn is the time to eliminate that and prepare for the cooler months ahead, which have their own set of skin issues!
This is a dull skin triple threat! With three different exfoliating actions each working at target sites and various epidermal depth, be prepared for no dull, dry skin cell to be left in sight. The result is super glowy, radiant and clear skin in just a few minutes all in the comfort of your own bathroom at home. In this formulation I used Fermented paw paw enzymes (from biotechnology) to work on the very surface of the skin to digest the outermost dry dead skin cell layer. Then I combined a blend of three Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) that work on different depths of the epidermis respectively. In order of the depth that they lift and exfoliate: Mandelic acid; Lactic acid and Glycolic acid. Finally, we use eco beads (environmentally friendly, non-plastic beads) to buff away any last traces of dull skin.
The prebiotic we have used in this fine, radiance boosting mist is based on inulin extracted from chicory root and it works to selectively support protective organisms, and helps restore the skins microbiota layer after disruptions to its integrity (think environmental onslaughts of summer!). Secondary benefits include natural skin conditioning effects. Next, we use an active ingredient complex indicated to help modulate and reduce excess sebaceous secretion and excretion. The skin benefit is the perfect balance of healthy oils on the skins surface; not too shiny, not too matte! We are all about the skin glow, but without excess oil. Gotu Kola Extract (Centella Asiatica) is used in this formulation to help promote wound healing and tissue regeneration. It may help reduce the potential for scarring. Beta Glucan (Oat) is an anti-irritation, moisturiser, that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces redness and also soothes.
We love this mist because it instantly calms, refreshes, and refines the complexion at any time of the day or night, even over makeup. And we know its balancing the skins delicate microbiome at the same time, which keeps the skin barrier robust.
This is definitely not your average vitamin C serum! This one contains a powerful and potent combination of Vitamin C; Ferulic acid, Vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid. I can’t go a day with out this product. It is my absolute #1 radiance booster. We use L’Ascorbic acid at a whopping concentration of 23% and we back it up with natural vitamin C from Kakadu plum. We’ve added Vitamin E and importantly Ferulic acid. I like to think of this particular combination of actives as the master antioxidant. You just can’t get anything better to fight free radical damage in the skin - a major cause of accelerated skin ageing. Summer heightens the skins exposure to free radical damage thanks to UV light. UV light rays are the main creators of free radicals in the skin. Free radicals are nasty and unstable oxygen molecules that attack healthy skin cells. This causes oxidative stress, a breakdown of our skin support network, collagen and elastin and damage to the skin cells DNA. This serum, with the addition of Hyaluronic acid is deeply hydrating as well. I have found that it keeps my hyperpigmentation under control. The tyrosinase inhibiting action of the Vitamin C helps prevent the dark spots getting darker. If you don’t have this product in your bathroom cabinet yet, this is a great opportunity to get it and start benefiting from its illuminating action.
This product prescription would normally retail for $243, but we’ve bundled it up for you for just $179. You will save $64 with our compliments. Click here to shop!
