Identifying Skin Concerns
The journey into Luminous Skin begins with an in-depth understanding of your skin’s unique needs, and a tailored ritual that prescribes the essential daily nutrients it needs to thrive.
Hyperpigmentation is characterised by brown patches that are darker in colour than the surrounding skin. It is most commonly seen as freckles, age spots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It is characterised by:
- Uneven skin tone
- Dark spots after a break-out
- Symmetrical dark brown patches on top lip, orbital bone, and forehead
Skin experiencing Hyperpigmentation needs Antioxidants and brightening actives to even tone, in addition to SPF to protect against further damage. This skincare ritual features ingredients that brighten the complexion, support healthy cell renewal, and protect against solar damage—for a more even-looking complexion.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles refer to the loss of collagen and elastin, which occur as a result of ageing and sun exposure. Fine lines and wrinkles are characterised by:
- Fine lines on the forehead
- Cross-hatching lines around mouth and eyes
- Facial sagging
Skin experiencing fine lines and wrinkles needs Vitamins and firming actives to support the skin’s architecture and to preserve collagen, as well as SPF to protect against solar-induced damage. This skincare ritual features ingredients that increase skin firmness, encourage collagen production, and supports healthy DNA replication for a firmer, more defined profile.
Sensitivity often presents as red, irritated skin, which is highly reactive to heat, active ingredients and the sun. Sensitivity is characterised by:
- Skin that appears red and irritated
- Low tolerance to active ingredients
- Skin that flushes easily
Skin experiencing sensitivity requires calming and nourishing actives to support healthy barrier function and soothe signs of inflammation. This skincare ritual features ingredients that reduce the appearance of redness and support healthy barrier function for a calmer, clearer complexion.
Congestion and Break-Out Prone
Congestion can occur when pores become clogged, or as a result of producing excessive sebum. It is characterised by:
- Raised bumps with a red or white head
- Small bumps under the skin mouth and eyes
- Red, inflamed cysts
Skin experiencing congestion requires resurfacing actives which support healthy pH and promote cell turnover. This skincare ritual features ingredients that refine tone and texture, while balancing sebum production and supporting a healthy skin microbiome for a clearer, more refined complexion.
Dryness occurs when the skin is lacking crucial lipids required for healthy skin. It is characterised by:
- Dry, scaly skin
- Small patches of flaky skin
- Tight sensation after cleansing or showering
Skin experiencing Dryness requires intense nourishment to protect against moisture loss and to prevent damage from environmental aggressors. This skincare ritual features ingredients that lock in moisture and strengthen the skin’s barrier to alleviate dry, flaky skin for a smoother complexion.
Dehydration occurs when the skin is lacking water, resulting in loss of moisture. It is characterised by:
- Very fine lines all over the skin
- A tight sensation on the skin
- Dull appearance
Skin experiencing dehydration requires water-binding actives to increase moisture and prevent damage from environmental aggressors. This skincare ritual features ingredients that amplify hydration for a more radiant complexion.
