Helpful Tips Blog #5!
To coincide with our March treatment offer at Waterlily, ‘Complexion Perfection’ which includes either a lactic or mandelic peel plus a LED light treatment, (Click here for more information on this offer) I thought it was the perfect time to talk about Vitamin B!
If you have had a peel at Waterlily before you would know that we do ask you NOT to use any of your ‘active’ products for 5 days post peel. There are still many products from Ultraceuticals that you can use, with the stand out product being our B2 hydrating serum. This little gem is a combination of ingredients that will increase and maintain the moisture level within your skin, and is perfect to apply immediately after and for several days following a ‘peel’ treatment.
B Vitamins are essential and are involved in many different metabolic processes, including energy release from macronutrients, formation of red blood cells and the functioning of our nervous system. The B family consists of thiamin, riboflavin, B6, B12, niacin and panthenol.
Both niacin (niacinamide) and panthenol (pro-vitamins) are also extremely beneficial for our skin cells and easily penetrate the top layer of our skin helping our skin look fresh and healthier. These 2 amazing ingredients have been combined to create our Ultra B2 hydrating serum and benefits our skin in a whole list of ways;
– Improves hydration
– Reduces oil production
– Reduces enlarged pores
– Improves UV induced pigmentation
– Reduces fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture
– Reduces facial redness
