The world of skincare gets confusing very quickly. So if you feel dazed whilst trying to work out what the best serum for you is or which actives play well together, you've come to the right place.
The Vela Days Active Compound, aka Glow Getter serum, has everything you need, replacing six products in one because hardworking and skin minimalism is what we love.
So here's a quick breakdown of the six products in one:
1. Hyaluronic Acid serum:
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is naturally found within the human body, within our cells. It's the main element that gives our skin a natural dewy, youthful look. HA, a natural humectant, is essential to the moisture and elasticity of our skin. However, as we age, the concentration and molecular weight of HA in our skin substantially decreases.
HA can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water. The Vela Days Active Compound serum includes x4 weights of HA, so you're getting a potent fix using this serum.
Other factors of HA that add to your overall glow include improving your skins lipid barrier, fine lines, wrinkles, elasticity, and reducing pigmentation when coupled with antioxidants.
2. Retinol serum:
Retinol is a vitamin A derivative addressing every skin concern from fine lines to acne, pigmentation and sun damage. It works by accelerating cellular turnover, increasing collagen production, and evening out your complexion. Incoming plump, glowing skin!
Using encapsulated retinol, the active ingredient is surrounded by a lipid sphere that protects the retinol within the formula, so it doesn't become exposed until it has penetrated the skin and dissolved. The objective of encapsulated retinol is to increase the stability of retinol, enabling it to penetrate more deeply into the skin while mitigating potential side effects.
As a bonus, it's pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly!
3. Antioxidant and vitamin C serum:
Every time you go outside, your skin will be exposed to UV rays and air pollution, deteriorating our skin and cells over time. Fortunately, vitamin C can help speed up the process of cell regeneration and reduce the damage you get from sun exposure. Vitamin C has many benefits on your skin, but it's proven to help deal with discolouration, lightening acne marks, and speeding up collagen production.
The Active Compound includes high percentages of bioactive Kakadu plum and finger lime caviar to ensure the formula contains an effective amount of vitamin C in a very stable water-soluble form, instead of adding an unstable synthetic form of vitamin C which oxidises faster. The vitamin C used is cold extracted, which keeps the integrity of active compounds within the plant extract, so it's 100% active.
4. Peptide serum
Peptides are small compounds of amino acids that build up the necessary protein in the body. Peptide serums are great for anti-aging. In addition, the use of peptides on your skin will help stimulate the production of collagen in your skin resulting in firmer, smoother looking skin.
Peptides can penetrate the outer layer of the skin, so instead of sitting on top of the skin, they sink in more deeply. Peptides act as a messenger that tells your body to produce more collagen. Aside from eliminating the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, peptide serums also help reduce inflammation and keep the body's moisture by locking in hydration.
5. Detoxifying blemish serum
The detoxifying blemish treatment is a plant complex that detoxifies by stimulating the key enzymes of the skin's #1 detoxification system. It also brightens by correcting hyperpigmentation and lightening skin tone by inhibiting melanin synthesis.
6. Niacinamide/vitamin B serum
Niacinamide also called nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B-3, an essential nutrient. It's a water-soluble vitamin that goes deep within the surface of your skin. Niacinamide visibly minimises enlarged pores, corrects uneven skin tone, regulates sebum production, strengthens the skins barrier, and softens fine lines that may appear on the face. It also works towards brightening skin and improving the overall skin texture. Additionally, Niacinamide has a considerable role in reducing redness, inflammation and scarring.
For everyone wanting to achieve that dewy glow, this Active Compound will set you up nicely without having to spend your life savings and multiple shelves of bathroom space on six different serums.
