Few more days to the end of 2016 and it is scary how time flies!! In just TWO more years, i will be hitting my mid 30s and the reality of ageing has already hit me hard!!!! Few years ago when i was still having bad skin (Adult acne with dilated pores and dull / patchy skin), someone told me that i don’t look my age (in a bad way) and it can be really demoralizing. Ever since then, i vowed to take good care of myself so as to slow down signs of ageing and seems like my effort has paid off! There’s really no ugly women but lazy ones so we should all pamper ourselves better. 🙂
As you know, i’m doing regular facial (once every 3 weeks) which helps to improve the condition of my skin but in between, it is as important to have a good skincare regime to take care of skin. Recently, L’Oreal Paris has sent me a product to enhance the effectiveness of my skincare regime and i’m excited to share it with you! Say goodbye to fine lines, dilated pores, dull skin, loss of skin elasticity and clarity with L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence!
We are all familiar with the metabolism of our body, but how about the metabolism of our skin? When our skin’s metabolism is normal, our cells function well – damage is repaired, cells self-exfoliate and collagen production stays constant. But like all biological systems, the metabolism of our skin inevitably deteriorates as we age. It is also slowed down further by external aggressors like stress and pollution.. As a result, skin loses firmness, skin texture becomes rough, and its barrier function weakened.
To counter the slowing down of skin’s regeneration, L’Oreal Paris reinforced the formula of its best-selling Youth Code with Ferment Essence that activates youth with the renewing power of fermented seeds. Thanks to the ultrasonic extracting technique, the ferment Essence is extracted in the pure form at 98% concentration and infused in the improved Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence.
Traditionally used for food, fermentation is a process used to preserve it. The process of fermentation encourages the growth of good bacteria and other nutrients like B-vitamins, probiotics, Omega-3 fatty acids and beneficial enzymes, making the food more nutrient rich than its non-fermented state. One of my favorite fermented food has to be Kimchi! Consuming Kimchi helps to improve cardiovascular health and digestive system. Kimchi also contains loads of antioxidants, flavonoids and probiotic to aid with healing, combat ageing and strengthen the immune system. Ahhh, the beauty of Fermentation!
The same process when applied to skincare, works wonders for the skin! Active ingredients are broken down to smaller molecules and better absorbed by the skin. Skin-loving nutrients like enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants are also produced in the process. Slowing metabolism is the key to aging skin The Ferment Essence makes use of the renewing power of the fermented seeds to stimulate skin metabolism. Extracted at 98% purity, it is highly concentrated to accelerate the skin’s self renewal for bouncy radiant skin.
Other Key Ingredients of the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence include:
- Papain, a natural enzyme derived from papayas and pineapples that helps to mildly exfoliate the skin’s surface of accumulated dead cells
- Adenosine, a powerful anti-aging active, helps reinforce and re-organize the dermis, thus visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles
Results have shown that with 1 drop of L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence, skin feels smooth and soft instantly. In one week, skin texture is improved and more refined. In 1 month, skin regains youthfulness and radiance. In addition, 85% women agree skin is smoother and more radiant in 1 week!
The L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence has a sturdy glass container packaging with a pump applicator which makes application hygienic. Normally, about 2-3 gentle squeeze will obtain the right amount to cover my entire face & neck area.
Will use this Pre-Essence after the use of toner to prep my skin in the morning & evening before applying serum and moisturizer. The Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence has a pleasant citrus scent and it is extremely light weight. It gets absorbed into my skin instantly without being too heavy or greasy on the skin. Hence, i can layer on serum and moisturizer as per normal without worrying that it will choke my pores. The Pre-Essence also keeps my skin soothe and it leaves my skin ‘light’ and refreshed instantly. As you know, i’m always facing sensitive and dehydrated skin. This is why i have to use both serum and moisturizer to combat these two skin problems. With the Pre-Essence, i observed that it helps my serum and moisturizer get absorbed quicker. My skin also feels less tight and stays hydrated for a longer period~ I also observed that my face don’t get as red as before. 🙂
L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence is suitable for all ages – look forward to soft and bouncy skin for the 20s, clear and radiant skin for the 30s and firm and smooth skin for the 40s
