85% of skin aging is caused by these 4 factors
Some ingredients that are supposed to improve skin condition instead end up causing redness, flaking, tenderness, and rough skin. Topical lightening agents like hydroquinone and kojic acid can increase sun sensitivity, and potentially worsen redness and age spots.
To prevent skin irritation, LUKSO NeuroCosmetics formulas do not contain any of these frequently used ingredients:
- Sulfates: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) / Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
- Ingredients that release formaldehyde
- Artificial color, artificial fragrance and fragrance blends
- Ethyl alcohol
- Propylene glycol
- Kojic Acid
- BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole) and BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)
Surprisingly, indoor pollution levels are higher than outdoors. Since we spend nearly 90% of our time indoors, our skin is continually challenged by emissions from paint, carpets, plastic, cooking gauze and nicotine.
The degree of outdoor pollution is increasing at lightning speed due to construction sites, power plants, incinerators, fires and dust, posing a significant health risk. It's no wonder, then, that people have more wrinkles in densely populated and highly polluted North American cities like New York.
The skin is the body's natural protective barrier. However, pollution particles are 30 times smaller than pores, which means they are able to pass through the healthy surface of the skin and damage the deeper layers, causing inflammation, breakdown of collagen and elastin, and premature death of skin cells. Results? Rough skin, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and redness.
Standard antioxidant formulas protect the skin against damage caused by oxygen free radicals, but the harmful effects of pollution also come from nitrogen free radicals. This is why all LUKSO NeuroCosmetics formulas contain Lipochroman®, the only antioxidant capable of fighting both types. The formulas also contain Vitamin C, seaweed peptides and essential oils, all antioxidants that penetrate deep into the skin to help reduce the breakdown of collagen and elastin and stimulate the production of new collagen. t4>
High-energy visible light (HEV light) has been shown to cause skin damage and contribute to skin aging. The sun is therefore not the only source of HEV rays.Interior lights are too, including those for computers, cell phones, and energy-efficient LED and fluorescent bulbs
It is estimated that the average North American spends nearly eight hours a day in front of their screen. This is a real threat to the skin: over time, exposure to UVB, UVA, and HEV rays can cause uneven pigmentation, loss of firmness, wrinkles, rough texture, and increased skin tone. sensitivity.
The formulas contain powerful antioxidants such as Chromabright®, Lipochroman® and Vitamin C, which help neutralize free radicals and correct damage caused by UV and HEV rays.
Cold weather decreases the amount of lipids that trap moisture and cause irritation, dryness, and itchiness. Heating and air conditioning also dehydrate the skin. Conversely, hot temperatures can make the skin oily and cause acne.
LUKSO NeuroCosmetics formulas contain bio-identical lipids and marine peptides to guarantee optimal hydration. In order to reduce excess sebum without drying out the skin, we offer formulas of glycolic and salicylic acids with perfectly adjusted pH levels, in addition to essential oils and marine extracts.
