This Is Why The Beauty Ingredient, Azelaic Acid Should Be Your New BF

Hey Lovelies!

Azelaic acid will be known to avid beauty fanatics. Due to its remarkable results, the relatively new skincare ingredient is fast becoming a global sensation. Discover just what this amazing beauty component can do and why it should be your new BF! Furthermore, should you be looking for that perfect beauty gift, all of these are currently on offer. Hooray for Christmas!

What Is Azelaic Acid?

Dicarboxylic acid (otherwise known as azelaic acid) works like a gentle leave-on exfoliant. Sourced mainly from barley, it does not exfoliate as effectively as AHAs/BHAs or salicylic acid and can be used in conjunction with these. Although it works as a mild exfoliator, its key powers lie in successfully treating varying skin concerns such as: blackheads, enlarged pores, redness, scarring, uneven and aging skin.

Suitable for all skin types, this wonder ingredient is proven to produce remarkable results.

Key Benefits:

Prohibits Breakouts

Slows Down Signs of Aging

Diminishes Signs of Discoloration and Redness

Refines The skin

Unclogs Pores, Aids in The Reduction of Enlarged Pores

Smooths Skin’s Surface

Best Products To Buy:

Review Of Exuviance’s Age Reverse Day Repair

Hey Lovelies!

Keep the dreaded age factor at bay with the help of this incredible product by world-renowned brand, Exuviance. After testing many products by medical product brand, NesoStrata, I was introduced to their sister brand, Exuviance. The range includes the same innovative ingredients, coupled with botanicals and delivers truly remarkable results. Exuviance’s Retexturing Treatment is outstanding; thus, I couldn’t wait to review their Age Reverse Day Repair. Combining key proven ingredients to prohibit the onset of aging, this facial treatment is massively impressive!

Included in Exuviance’s Age Reverse Day Repair SPF30 is a powerful Triple Firming Complex of NeoGlucosamine, retinol and peptides. These work in unison with an exceptional complex of antioxidants, such as pomegranate and vitamins A & E. This specifically formulated product results in not only preventing the progression of aging on the skin; but, has even been shown to actually reverse some of these pesky signs that sadly greet you with age. Ha, ha, take that, time!

No matter how many signs of aging concern you, this formula works like a trojan to target and quickly deal with them. Here’s how it works:

1.UV Filters

UV filters combined offer vital protection for your skin, preventing the affliction of any further damage.

2.Triple Antioxidant Complex

This formula contains a potent solution of highly effective antioxidants. The pomegranate vitamins A & E thwart free radicals with super-warrior strength. Furthermore, they spark off the repair process with speed.

3.Triple Firming Complex:

Credit: Giphy

In the mission to tackle aging, certain key ingredients are essential. Exuviance’s peptides, retinol and NeoGlucosamine (a non-amino sugar) have been clinically proven to significantly reduce signs of aging and greatly improve the condition of skin.

Their special formulation works by triggering collagen and elastin production. The outcome is a firmer, more plump and smoother complexion, with far fewer noticeable wrinkles. Even deeper and more stubborn wrinkles are reached.

Nearer the skin’s surface, a precise combination of retinol and NeoGlucosamine successfully treats the skin. Gentle, yet effective exfoliation takes place; thus, allowing for cell renewal. Next, uneven patches, age spots and discolouration are addressed and diminished. When you look in the mirror, expect a beautiful rejuvenated reflection, coupled with gasps of sheer joy!

I LOVE this treatment. Thank you Exuviance. Total genius.

N.B Ensure you use additional sunscreen as this product contains retinol.

Exuviance’s Age Reverse Day repair is currently priced at £45.99 (was £69) at www.facethefuture.co.uk. There’s never been a better time to treat yourself! Buy here.
