Irrespective of what’s trending on BeautyTok, glowing skin is always in. The best way to achieve healthy, glowing skin is to use the right skincare products for your skin type, condition and concerns. Formulated with superior, effective ingredients, and backed by doctors, these skincare heroes will supercharge your routine, whether you’re looking to hydrate and repair skin or fight pigmentation, dark spots and early signs of ageing. Here’s everything you need to know about the new range of ILLUMIASKINMD skincare products.
Gentle, yet effective, this range was formulated for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin. It features award-winning ingredients and clinically proven formulations that will help you achieve skin that is hydrated, balanced and clear of blemishes. A great addition to any skincare routine, but especially useful if you’ve recently had an aesthetic treatment.
Multi-C Brightening Serum
This antioxidant powerhouse features Golden C and KakadoxC+, two complexes that are packed with vitamin C. Vitamin C is a skincare superstar that imparts all sorts of benefits that keep your skin healthy, strong and youthful. Golden C is a cocktail of a stable active version of ascorbic acid and bioactive glutathione with gold nanoparticles—these ensure it’s absorbed deep into the skin. Australian super fruit Kakadu Plum, which has the highest vitamin C content among fruits, powers KakadoxC+ complex. Along with these, the serum also has resveratrol and tranexamic acid, and together all these ingredients work to reduce inflammation, strengthen the skincare barrier, even out skin tone, add luminosity and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydro Plump Smoothing Serum
Instantly plump skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and provide intense hydration with this serum that features the MoistShieldTM HA Complex. It has eight different types of hyaluronic acid in different molecular weights to ensure that deep hydration reaches all layers of the skin. The serum also has Resurrection Plant and Prickly Pear Cactus extracts that flood skin with moisture and hydrate it at the deepest layers while also providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits respectively. Polyglutamic acid works together with hyaluronic acid to optimise deep hydration while Panthenol strengthens the skin barrier to prevent loss of moisture from the skin. The result is bouncy, plump, youthful skin.
Power Peptides Repairing Moisturiser
Boost collagen production and fight the signs of ageing including lines and wrinkles with this serum that is a powerful blend of peptides like Argireline and Matrixyl. Argireline helps inhibit muscle movement to prevent the formation of deep expression lines—think wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, forehead, between the brows. Matrixyl on the other hand, mimics naturally occurring peptides to keep skin firm and plump. It also triggers and supports skin repair to combat glycation. Squalane, another key ingredient, works like the skin’s natural oil and locks in hydration for stronger, calmer, smoother, plumper skin.
Total Calm Mattifying Gel Moisturiser
Ancient botanicals meet modern science in this lightweight moisturiser that has encapsulated active ingredients to allow for controlled release, which prolongs the benefits of this gel. The powerful cocktail of botanicals include curcumin (from turmeric), pine bark and quince fruit that together soothe inflammation, trigger the production of hyaluronic acid, strengthen the skin barrier, combat free radical damage, calm stressed and irritated skin, in addition to helping balance sebum production to reduce the chances of breakouts. It also has Propanediol, which is a humectant and Phytosphingosine that kick-starts the production of natural moisturising factors and helps strengthen the skincare barrier.
This range of products was especially created to help reverse visible signs of ageing and prevent new ones from appearing and to protect the skin from the harmful effects of sun damage.
DNA Repair Intense Recovery Daily Serum
Used everyday, this serum works to boost the skin’s natural defences against DNA damage caused by the sun to promote quicker recovery. It features three award winning DNA repair enzymes— Photolysomes, Mitosomes, Endosomes—in high concentrations to boost the skin’s ability to repair itself and prevent future photo damage as well. This reduces the visible signs of DNA damage including fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration. It also has an antioxidant complex consisting of Evodia Rutaecarpa and Ergothioneine that fight free radical damage while also soothing inflammation.
DNA Repair UV Shield SPF 43
Wearing sunscreen daily is half the battle won against photo damage, especially if it’s as potent as this one. Powered by a powerful enzyme—photolyase—that helps repair DNA damage caused by the sun’s rays, physical and chemical UVA and UVB filters and antioxidants, not only does this sunscreen protect you from the sun’s rays, it also helps repair signs of photo damage and restricts the appearance of further sun-inflicted DNA damage. Used daily, it greatly improves the chances of protecting the skin from DNA damage and cell death caused by the sun rays, thus keeping skin healthy.
DNA Repair Sun Protection Face Wash Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Skincare minimalists and people who hate the icky feeling of sunscreen, this one’s for you. All you have to do is wash your face and gently dab it dry for skin that’s protected from the sun. Using QuantSphere, a molecular adhesion technology, the face wash deposits chemical UV filters, as well as other active ingredients, to the surface of the skin. It is designed to bind to the skin and stay in place on the surface even after you have rinsed your face to provide prolonged sun protection without feeling heavy, greasy or leaving a white cast. Ideal for daily use, it’s essential to use additional sunscreen like DNA Repair UV Shield SPF 43 if you’re going to be spending an extended amount of time outdoors.
DNA Repair Advanced Spot Correction Serum
Target existing spots and prevent the formation of new spots with our new serum that shatters pigmentation and eliminates dullness. It brings together all the best benefits of potent ingredients like Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide, Arbutin, Vitamin C and Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) to improve existing skin discolouration, inhibit enzymes responsible for hyperpigmentation, prevent formation of new dark spots, reduce and prevent further formation of melanin to unify skin tone and brighten skin with minimal irritation and redness.
