Turning the clock back on ageing skin
We are excited to bring you a new product from Dermalogica, Phyto Nature Oxygen Cream. A reawakening daily liquid moisturiser that firms, lifts and revitalises with premium hydrating and oxygen-optimising phytoactives. If you’re looking to turn back the clock on signs of skin ageing but are sceptical about whether such formulas really deliver, we quizzed Dermalogica’s Education Manager Victoria Evans on the subject (and the answer is yes!)
In a nutshell, what is this new oxygenating moisturiser and who’s it for?
Phyto Nature Oxygen Cream breathes new life into ageing skin. It’s clinically proven to give 4 years back by reducing the appearance of premature wrinkles – and skin looks firmer and more lifted after 1 week of use. This firming and lifting liquid moisturiser is formulated with hydrating, oxygen-optimising phytoactives to help skin better absorb and utilise oxygen – firming, revitalising, and plumping as it oxygenates to leave skin looking smooth and strong.
This is a daily moisturiser for anyone who feels they have prematurely ageing skin; dryness, fine line and wrinkles, dull skin tone, depleted and tired-looking skin. Its liquid-cream texture feels as light as air, a contrast to heavy creams typically formulated for this skin type. It can be used as part of your AM and/or PM regimen.
What is skin oxygenation and how important is it for healthy looking skin?
The oxygen we breathe is vital to our survival and to our skin health. As we age, our skin takes in and utilises oxygen less effectively. Without sufficient oxygen, skin lacks the energy it needs to maintain its natural vitality. This shift can show up as fine lines, wrinkles, and an overall appearance that is dull, tired, and depleted. What’s also interesting is that dryer or dehydrated skin can be less likely to absorb oxygen from the atmosphere compared to moisturised skin. This is why we focussed on oxygen-optimising ingredients in a moisturiser rather than a serum for best results.
What are the ingredients that deliver the firming and revitalising results?
Firstly, it’s important to note that this moisturiser is not giving oxygen to the skin, rather the rare phytoactives work by optimising skin’s oxygenation process – aiding cells to better take up oxygen to work more effectively as they did when they were younger to firm and energise skin. Ligustrum Lucidum seed, Glycogen, and Nasturtium Flower optimise skin’s oxygenation process to boost luminosity and radiance. Adaptogenic Astragalus and Electric Daisy Flower smooth and tighten whilst Squalane and Luffa Root firm and hydrate. It also contains antioxidant-rich Rose of Winter to soothe and boost skin’s resilience.
Do you have any other tips for reducing skin ageing?
There are a host of factors that contribute to the way our skin ages. Taking care of your skin with a good regimen is crucial but did you know that up to 50% of visible signs of skin ageing can also come from our environment? Factors like climate, UV exposure, pollution, sleep, diet, and stress can all accelerate skin ageing. So, prioritise self-care, good nutrition and water intake, exercise, and quality sleep. And always apply a high SPF daily!
