If I could impart one lesson to my two daughters about skincare, it would be to take care of your skin early. I come from the generation that embraced “Peak Tanning Hours” and slathered on iodine-laced baby oil as I baked at the beach. Unfortunately, now my skin shows it! Premature wrinkles and crow’s feet are the result and I am working double time to rectify them. Easier by far is avoiding the sun, using sunblock (including winter sunblock), and the consistent application of high-quality, effective skincare products. One of my new faves? Dermalogica BioLumin-C Eye Serum.
Used by more than 100,000 skin therapists in over 100 countries around the world, Dermalogica has a reputation for products that are backed by science. And, the BioLumin-C Eye Serum is no exception. Created to intensely hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes, it visibly reduces those dreaded lines and creates softer, smoother skin.
The secret ingredient? Vitamin C.
According to a recent Allure magazine article, “As far as your skin is concerned, Vitamin C is ‘a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals,’ explains board-certified dermatologist Patricia Wexler. ‘Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.
So, in the same way that consuming antioxidant-rich foods aids your body in fighting off free radicals, topical antioxidants do the same for your skin by helping to offset daily aggressors like UV damage and exposure to air pollution.’”
But not all Vitamin C skincare products are the same.
What makes this particular serum special is that it delivers a highly bioavailable Vitamin C complex to the skin. This means that the specially formulated serum is readily absorbed so that the ingredients can have an active effect. This is incredibly important, because if the molecular structure of a product is too large, it cannot be absorbed.
I’ve been using the Dermalogica BioLumin-C Eye Serum to great effect! I gently apply under the eye and along the orbital bone morning and evening, taking care not to get it in my eyes. My personal takeaways include:
Lightweight and Absorbs Quickly. I love the lightweight feel of this serum. A little is all that’s needed. But, even if you use a bit extra, it absorbs readily and thoroughly. It can be used before applying makeup and only takes moments to absorb.
Quick Results. Apply a bit and skin immediately looks softer and smoother. And, while wrinkles didn’t disappear (I wish!) they definitely were minimized.
Brightens Complexion. Winter dry skin loses its dull, flaky look. My skin looks much healthier and (dare I say it?) younger, too.
Improves Makeup Application. Because the skin around my eyes is so hydrated, my makeup looks dramatically better, without the caking in creases that I wrestled with before.
A Clean Product. As with all other Dermalogica products, this eye serum is free from any artificial colors and fragrances, mineral oil, lanolin, specially denatured alcohol, parabens and microplastics.
Dermalogica BioLumin-C Eye Serum was recently a recipient of the Holy Grail Beauty Award 2020 by Cosmopolitan magazine. And, I can see why! If you have dry skin, the start to crow’s feet or wrinkles, or simply want to treat your skin properly to head those problems off at the pass, this is an essential product. Retail: $70.00.
The serum, along with a host of incredible cleansers, exfoliants, moisturizers, toners and more can be purchased at Dermalogica. Or, you can visit an authorized skin care professional near you using the company Store Locator. Dermalogica products are guaranteed when recommended by a professional skin therapist. So, to ensure that your Dermalogica products are authentic, it is essential to purchase through an authorized professional or directly through the company.
