Modern, urban life can be tough on our skin. Most of us are aware of the damage caused by harmful UV rays and protect our skin with SPF in the summer months. But there is another silent skin assassin that we need to be increasingly vary of: pollution. Living in a city means we’re constantly exposed to dust, smog, smoke and exhaust fumes that impact our general health as well our skin.
Pollution is full of free radicals that can have a negative effect on your skin in a variety of ways. Short-term impact can be redness, sensitivity and inflammation, while long-term it can cause dullness, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines and a gradual decrease in elasticity – in other words it can cause premature skin aging. This summer, in addition to protecting yourself with sunblock, protect and repair your skin with two essential BIOEFFECT products: BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist and BIOEFFECT EGF + 2A Daily Duo.
Offering instant refreshment and hydration, BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist is made with pure, geologically filtered Icelandic water and optimized hyaluronic acid. It also contains orthosilicic acid, a bioavailable form of silica, that has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen and strengthen the skin’s elasticity.
BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist goes on like a delicate veil, immediately providing the skin with soothing moisture and dries to a powdery soft, matte finish. Whether your skin is subjected to the extremes of indoor air-conditioning or outdoor heat, BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist is the ideal antidote, use as often as needed for a boost of skin-balancing hydration.
A potent multi-tasker, BIOEFFECT EGF + 2A Daily Duo is the one of the purest and most effective anti-aging and antioxidant treatment ever developed for the skin. Step 1, the Intense Anti-Aging Concentrate, contains EGF and hyaluronic acid, which work together to increase skin volume and density while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for increased radiance and younger-looking, hydrated skin.
Step 2, the Energizing Urban Pollution Fighter, harnesses the power of ferulic and azelaic acids to protect the skin from the specific damage caused by pollution and other environmental aggressors. The free radicals in pollution deplete antioxidants in the skin, causing oxidative stress which can lead to visible signs of damage and aging. Ferulic acid is a significantly more powerful antioxidant than the popular Vitamin C. While azelaic acid possesses anti-inflammatory properties, inhibits bacterial growth in acne, blocks melanin synthesis, and brightens skin tone by addressing dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
As a company founded by scientists, we back up our claims with proof: in a three-month, split-face study, forty women applied a quality moisturizer to one side of the face and BIOEFFECT EGF + 2A daily Duo to the other. On the BIOEFFECT EGF +2A side, average improvements included: a 39% improvement in hydration, a 29% increase in collagen density, a 24% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, a 21% decrease in skin roughness, and a notable reduction in skin redness.
Calling all city dwellers and urbanites! Nourish and repair your skin this summer with the finest skincare developed by science: BIOEFFECT.
