Preserve Youthful Skin with Nutriderm From DCS

Hello readers, sorry for the short hiatus as i was away for a short trip to KL and BKK! Fell sick after i came back hence i do not have the time and energy to blog~ Now that i’m better, it’s time to start clearing my backlogs! 🙂

If you have been following my blog, i have mentioned about a new Korean Skincare brand a few months back. DCS (i hope it rings a bell!) makes its mark in Singapore with its moisturising range – AQUADERM a few months back.  The range consists of six products which harnesses the volcanic power of Jeju to unlock the Korean secret to dewy, radiant skin.

DCS has been well-received in its home country (KOREA!), the rising beauty capital of Asia. ‘Watery-light’ dewy skin, or mul-kwang-pi-bu in Korean, has been a favourite trend amongst Korean celebrities for many years. DCS’ skin-loving formula transforms dull, dry skin to healthy, glowing skin which Korean women are famous for. One of Korea’s top beauty YouTube vloggers, Lamuqe, personally recommended DCS after testing it out on Korea’s popular beauty variety show, After School Beauty Bible. Lamuqe is well-liked and trusted by Korean audiences for her cheery and informative videos on skincare and makeup

DCS specially infuses each one of its products with Jeju’s mineral-rich volcanic sea water, making it possible to tap into the volcano’s rejuvenating power for healthier glowing skin. DCS has 5 ranges, from hydration to anti-ageing, ensuring that every skin need is catered for. In line with its cruelty-free business philosophy, all products from DCS are not tested on animals.

After trying out the Aquaderm range, DCS has sent me some products from their Nutriderm range for review. NUTRIDERM will help to embrace the youthful and dewy skin of Korean women with the different products targeted to combat signs of ageing . Youthful, glowing skin has to be maintained and preserved over time – one must start incorporating anti-ageing products as soon as we can, as the skin starts to age naturally by the mid-twenties.

The different products in the Nutiderm Range are made from high quality ingredients such as the rare Korean ginseng berry, Volcanic Seawater and other natural based ingredients. However, the prices remain wallet-friendly so as to make it affordable to many.

Rare Korean Ginseng Berry

The Korean ginseng berry can only be harvested once every four years over a seven-day period, giving rise to its rarity and value. Its powerful anti-ageing properties make the Korean ginseng berry a prized ingredient in Korean skincare. The secret to the Korean ginseng berry’s restorative power lies in its high concentration of ginsenosides. It contains twice the number of ginsenosides as compared to the more well-known and frequently used Korean ginseng root. Ginsenosides have excellent anti-oxidant properties, protecting one’s skin from the everyday stresses of the environment by fighting free radical damage. Our skin develops wrinkles when it loses the elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid found within. On top of protecting our skin from the outside, the Korean ginseng berry increases the hyaluronic acid found in our skin cells, giving our skin a natural, supple glow from within. The Ginseng Berry found in the products are fermented. Why so you might ask? The efficacy and potency of products are increased when they’re fermented, because ingredients are “broken down” into smaller, more easily absorbed molecules to hydrate, repair, and soothe.

Volcanic Seawater

Other than the Korean ginseng berry, another key ingredient that gives skin its dewy nature is Jeju’s volcanic seawater. Just like all DCS product ranges, the anti-ageing NUTRIDERM range is also infused with the pure, skin-loving water from Jeju. The volcanic seawater is highly valued for its rare mineral content such as selenium, zinc and iron, all of which are crucial to skin health because it repairs and regenerates the skin. It has been highly purified of pathogens and heavy metals by passing through volcanic basalt rock for thousands of years. Koreans, fans of gentle, water-based skincare, enjoy using products incorporated with nutrient-rich water. You, too, can transform your skin to naturally beautiful, healthy mulkwang-pi-bu skin, which Korean women have come to be famous for.

Nature-Based Ingredients

On top of the Korean ginseng berry and Jeju’s volcanic seawater, NUTRIDERM products contain other nature-based ingredients such as marine collagen, licorice extract, vegetable worm mushroom extract, and pomegranate extract. Hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin, nature-based ingredients provide your skin with the care it needs without stripping the skin’s natural moisture.

After cleansing, kick-start your anti-aging regime with the Ultra Nutrition Toner. If you feel that the use of toner is not necessary, read this post~  Ultra Nutrition Toner contains Volcanic Seawater which is highly valued for its rare mineral content and this ingredient helps to repairs and regenerates skin. Fermented Ginseng Berry Filtrate maintains and preserves youthful skin due to its powerful anti-ageing properties. Red Ginseng Extract will improve the firmness and resilience of skin with its powerful anti-ageing properties. Marine Collagen contains similar properties with human collagen.

In the past, i will tend to skip the use of moisturizer as i dislike piling too many things on my skin (which in turns will clog my pores). However, this is a misconception as it has been proven that many skin problems will surface when skin being dehydrated.. When skin lacks moisture, it will turn dry and cause irritation (Hence the sensitive skin). When skin is dry, it causes more oil / Sebum to be produced so as to protect the skin (Body’s natural reaction and hence the oily skin + outbreaks). The undeniable truth is that hydration is important for all skin types and the key to hydration is to choose products that suit your skin type

DCS recommends the use of Ultra Nutrition Day Cream (with SPF) to care for your skin in the day:

• Volcanic Seawater: It is highly valued for its rare mineral content such as selenium, zinc and iron, all of which are crucial to skin health because it repairs and regenerates skin.

• Fermented Ginseng Berry Filtrate: It maintains and preserves youthful skin due to its powerful anti-ageing properties.

• Red Ginseng Extract: It improves the firmness and resilience of skin with its powerful anti-ageing properties.

• Green Tea Extract: It inhibits collagenase (a collagen-reducing enzyme that breaks down collagen). It promotes the health and quantity of collagen, thereby promoting skin firmness and elasticity.

• Pomegranate Extract: It contains high amounts of Vitamin C, which influences the activation of tyrosinase and prevents the melanin pigment from being generated. It also brightens and protects the skin from free radical damage.

DCS has sent me the Ultra Nutrition Toner and Ultra Nutrition Day Cream for review. I have passed the Day Cream to my MIL for review and after incorporating the toner into my skincare regime, we are ready to give our thought!

Ultra Nutrition Toner has a thick texture and it has a light ginseng scent. The texture wise reminds me of the Laneige toner that i was using previously.  Upon application,  skin is instantly soothed~ Due to its thicker texture, a small amount will keep skin clean. After the product penetrates (almost instantly), there’s no sticky sensation and no oily residue. It is very gentle to skin and helps to calm down redness plus add moisture to skin.

My MIL is quite lazy so this 2-in-1 day cream that combines moisturizer and sunblock abilities in one will encourage her to hydrate and protect her skin on a daily basis. My MIL said that the Ultra Nutrition Day Cream is creamy in texture and has a herbal scent. After application, the day cream doesn’t leave behind any heavy / greasy sensation.. She told me the feeling is good after she applied the day cream. Her skin doesn’t feel so tight and is noticeably softer. It also did not cause adverse reactions like oil seeds / pimples / redness / itchiness after application.

If you are looking for good quality anti-ageing products at around $50 and below, DCS Nutriderm is the range that you can look to. Or, if you’re looking at anti-ageing products for sensitive skin, DCS Nutriderm was formulated specially for those with sensitive skin. In the light of so many environmental stressors, we need products that are gentle on the skin, yet restore and rejuvenate skin cells.
