Dermaceutic Sun Ceutic

DERMACEUTICLooking at sunscreens on offer can be daunting. What do you need to look for when choosing the correct sunscreen for your specific needs? This needs to be addressed on an individual needs basis and the one I’m eyeing recently for an upcoming trip to Italy is yet another Dermaceutic product, this time in their Protect range. Sun Ceutic 50, this sunscreen lives up to the promise of all Dermaceutic products and boasts the fact that it is safe to be used after chemical peels, laser treatments, cosmetic surgery and injecitons. All of which have a high intensity of treatment on the skin and makes the skin vulnerable and prone to pigmentation if the correct protection is not applied to the skin when exposed to the suns damaging UVA and UVB rays. Regardless of the fact of whether you have had any skin procedures the sun rays can also cause fine lines, wrinkles and there is truly nothing worse than sunburn so skin needs lots of protection from the elements.

I have yet to try the product but as having such successful results from Dermaceutic The Stimulating Night Cream and Dermaceutic Regen Ceutic (review to follow soon).

The Dermaceutic active key ingridients in the Sun Ceutic include:

Zinc Oxide

Promoting healing of skin, also has some antiseptic properties.

Titanium dioxide

A physical suncreen that reflects UV light before it can damage skin. Reducing the risk of sunburn which are associated with increased risk of melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer).

Hyaluronic Acid 1%

This is naturally produced by the body and the average human has approximately 15 grams of hyaluronan in the body, one-third which is “turned over” every day. Because of it occuring naturally in the body it has to be one of the most interesting ingredients in skin care, by adding some extra into your skincare routine the additonal hyaluronic acid secures moisture and creates fullness – resulting in naturally youthful fuller skin.

Aloe Vera

Benefits of Aloe Vera are not just old wives tales, its healing qualities along with soothing qualities make it one of the best ingridients for sensitve skin to build a strong barrier function and sooth aggrivated and dry skin.

30ml sells for R400 and is available from seleced Clinics and Salons, for a stockist near you please contact Conquest.

Introducing Juliette Armand

Cancel any plastic surgery indefinitely before you try Juliette Armand. In a nutshell, Juliette Armand is a Greek company that was founded by two Greek chemists in the 1990’s that decided to enter the wide world of cosmeticsJuliette Armand by developing both new and unique formulas. If you know any Greeks in your life or even have watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you will know that everything the Greeks do, they do with the upmost pride. As the Juliette Armand brand is very well known in Greece, across the EU and internationally it is a pleasure to know that they are available in South Africa. Juliette Armand are a bespoke company as they boast quality ingredients, professional research and deliver on their promises.

The brand, Juliette Armand has 3 product lines.

Juliette Armand’s mission is quite unique.

“Time does not stop, however it may be slowed down. This is exactly what our mission is, to make time elapse on the skin at a lower rate.”

Don’t shop their products by skin type but by skin mood. This is a unique concept which makes sense if you think about it. Do you really need to define what ‘skin type’ you fall into for life when there are various other items to take into account when choosing the correct products for you as they need to suit the season of life you’re in. If you too are as intrigued about this brand as I am, then watch this space for a review of their Skin Booster OPSIS THERAPY – Eye Brightening Gel which I have had the pleasure to try.
