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, sensitivity and rough skin. Topical lightening agents like hydroquinone and kojic acid can increase sensitivity to the sun, and potentially worsen redness and age spots.
To prevent skin irritation, LUKSO NeuroCosmetics formulas do not contain any of these commonly used ingredients:
- Sulfates: Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) / Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)
- Ingredients that release formaldehyde
- Artificial coloring, artificial perfume and perfume mixtures
- Ethyl alcohol
- Propylene glycol
- Kojic acid
- BHA (Butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene)
Surprising fact: indoor pollution levels are higher than outdoors. Since we spend almost 90% of our time in enclosed spaces, our skin is continually attacked by emissions from paint, carpets, plastic, cooking gases and nicotine.
The degree of outdoor pollution is increasing at a rapid rate due to construction sites, power plants, incinerators, fires and dust, posing a significant health risk. So it's no wonder that people have more wrinkles in highly populated and highly polluted North American cities like New York.
The skin constitutes the body's natural protective barrier. However, pollution particles are 30 times smaller than pores, meaning they are able to pass through the healthy surface of the skin and damage deeper layers, causing inflammation, breakdown of collagen and elastin, and premature death of skin cells. Result? Rough skin, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and redness.
Standard antioxidant formulas protect skin from 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, algae 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.
High visible energy rays (HEV light) have been shown to cause damage to the skin and contribute to aging. The sun is therefore not the only source of HEV rays. So are indoor lights, including those from 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 a 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.
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 causes irritation, dryness and itching. Heating and air conditioning also dehydrate the skin. Conversely, hot temperatures can make skin oily and cause acne.
LUKSO NeuroCosmetics formulas contain bioidentical lipids and marine peptides to ensure optimal hydration. 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.
