Stress, ageing, environmental factors like sun exposure, a poor diet and the lack of sleep can all wreak havoc on your skin. If your complexion has seen better days, Atorrege AD+ C5 EX Brightening Essence ($99 for 18ml) can help improve its appearance and texture.
The essence contains up to 5 per cent vitamin C, derived from corn. Because this ingredient is said to be highly stable, and has the same level of alkalinity as human skin, it will not cause irritation and is suitable for long-term use, even during pregnancy. As vitamin C is an antioxidant, the essence purports to have a powerful anti-ageing effect. It supposedly stimulates collagen production, evens out your skin tone by lightening dark spots and acne scars, minimises the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, keeps breakouts and oiliness under control, makes pores look tighter, and helps skin retain moisture. Other active ingredients include hamamelis, soya and camomile extracts. It is also allergy tested, and contains no fragrance, parabens or colours.
With so many benefits in just one bottle, your complexion will look brighter, clearer and younger, and feel much softer and smoother.
Fret no more, acne sufferers. Atorrege AD+ Acne Spots ($59 for 10ml) has anti-bacterial and anti-infl ammatory properties that help to soothe the discomfort of acne and tackle post-acne scarring.
