A Dermatologist-Approved Moisturizer That Does It All For You
Think about your skincare routine and the number of products you slather on your face in hopes of a miracle. You can’t seem to remove any from your regime because each product has a claim – for dull skin, to reduce hyperpigmentation, provide hydration, and so on.
Instead of falling back on your various products, why not go for one that can take care of all your needs?
Try our Radiancé Fluide™ Hydrating Emulsion that is formulated just for Singapore’s humid climate. The moisturizer is light-weight and gives off a radiant glow even without make-up.
As opposed to the usual cream or lotion moisturizer that feels too heavy for our weather, this emulsion is an oil-in-water moisturizer that will feel comfortable on the skin while delivering moisture to your skin.
Layer this moisturizer before your make-up for a dewy no-makeup look, or to help control your natural skin oils under your foundation. Care for your neck too, work a finger-tip size amount to your neck area in a tapping motion.
The Radiancé Fluide™ Hydrating Emulsion contains natural ingredients such as shea butter and grape seed oil that delivers a punch of benefits for our skin. Just a single application of the moisturizer can keep working to deliver these goodies to your skin.
Shea butter is the fat that is extracted from the nut of an African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa).
Shea butter can improve the human stratum corneum, or more commonly known as the outermost layer of our skin. Shea butter is similar to a natural lipid found in our body called ceramides and is excellent for hydration. You can expect more plump and moisturized skin with ceramides.
What is ceramide?
According to Dr Teo Wan Lin, Consultant dermatologist at TWL Specialist Skin and Laser Centre, “It’s best to think of ceramide as the ‘glue’ that holds our skin cells together. They form a protective layer that retains moisture and prevents bacteria and environmental pollutants from entering.”
Here’s the takeaway: Ceramides form the shield to keep the good stuff in, and the bad stuff out.
Your skin naturally produces ceramides – great, but it dwindles with age. This is where shea butter comes in, we want to replenish that supply of good lipids. Shea butter helps improve the recovery of damaged skin and enhance hydration, making it an increasingly popular ingredient in skin care products and cosmetic product formulations.
Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory benefits. Skin inflammation can be acute or chronic depending on individual. This can range from occasional rashes and itches to dermatitis (eczema) or rosacea. The composition of shea butter prevents inflammatory activity and should be included in any ideal moisturizers.
For those with atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, moisturisers with shea butter will also be more suitable. Eczema is characterized by dry skin and constant itching, it typically starts in childhood with changing severity over the years. Treatment and gentle skin care can alleviate much of the discomfort, so be sure to use an appropriate moisturizer to keep the itch at bay.
Grape seed oil
Grape seed oil, vitus vinifera, is extracted from seeds of grapes, typically wine grapes. While seeds are tossed out regularly after we eat our grapes, but those seeds may actually be the healthiest part of the fruit. Loaded with a myriad of benefits for the skin, it is popular for cosmetic use.
These natural oils contain fatty acids that can promote greater skin permeability, which also means it is an efficient vehicle for delivering hydration deep into your skin.
Grape seed oil has potent antioxidant abilities, helping to inhibit inflammation at skin level and prevent skin damage from stress. This makes grape seed oil a great candidate to be added to stable cream emulsions and can help skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, acne, premature ageing.
Dr Teo Wan Lin from TWL Specialist Skin and Laser Centre says: “Antioxidants fight against free radicals, which are produced naturally and can be induced by environmental factors such as smoke, UV rays and pollution. Free radicals can do a number on your skin and damage our cells, such stress can lead to ageing and excess pigmentation.
Grape seed oil helps to combat these, and delay the skin ageing process (we can’t say no to that!).
The benefits of this oil seem to be never-ending, as it is also able to improve skin elasticity and lighten the skin. Levels of skin melanin, the culprit for your dark spots, decreases with grape seed oil as it reduces the production of melanin.
Skin elasticity is also promoted as grape seed oil stops the activity of undesirable enzymes, such as those that destroy skin collage and produce skin sagging.
Yes, we are swept off by the benefits that grape seed oil provides, and it is no surprise that it is an ingredient in our Radiancé Fluide™ Hydrating Emulsion.
We like our moisturizers to be packed with a good dose of benefits for our skin, so get yours here now.
