Your skin endures a lot. Every day, natural and environmental triggers work to change its structure from inside and out – speeding up the ageing process and resulting in uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Skin can fight back against these processes, but it needs help. New research shows that Vitamin C can actually boost skin’s natural detox system, helping it to defend itself from oxidative stress. There’s just one problem: most topical Vitamin C products on the market contain unstable ingredients that can’t penetrate skin to provide protection.

We set out to change that. Dermalogica’s new BioLumin-C Serum, available nationwide from 15th June for $159, combines an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex with advanced bio-technology to go beyond skin’s surface – delivering the natural power of Vitamin C where it’s needed most. BioLumin-C does more than simply brighten, firm and reduce the appearance of fine lines; it optimises skin’s own defenses, giving people brighter skin from within.

Boasting a number of advanced ingredients to enhance the skin’s natural defenses to brighten, firm and defend, BioLumin-C Serum works both on the skin’s surface and below. Key ingredients include:
• Ascorbosilane SP firms skin, increases radiance and reduces hyperpigmentation.
• K3 Vita C, a next-generation form of Vitamin C, reduces hyperpigmentation, protects against free radical damage and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
• Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 firms skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
• Lactic Acid accelerates cell turnover, revealing brighter skin and increasing absorption of other active ingredients.
• Sophora Japonica Flower Extract stimulates skin’s natural anti-oxidative defense system.
• Salvia Hispanica (Chia Seed) Oil, rich in antioxidants, moisturises and helps quench free radicals.

To use, smooth over cleansed face and neck morning and night, after toning and before moisturising. When combining with Overnight Retinol Repair (0.5% or 1%), Dermalogica’s night-time Vitamin A products, use BioLumin-C in the morning, and Overnight Retinol Repair in the evening.

Because it is so stable, it penetrates deeply into the skin, resulting in luminous, bright skin with boosted barrier function to protect and correct from free radicals. BioLumin-C Serum comes in a 30 mL bottle for the recommended retail price of $159. Available from authorised Dermalogica® stockists from June 15, 2018.
