Skin Types: All skin types, especially those with a compromised skin barrier
Concerns: Specifically formulated to address adult acne + aging
“There is a myth that drying blemishes out is what works for acne but the exact opposite is true. When skin is dehydrated, it’s elasticity and barrier function are severely compromised – this results in much more impacted comedones and congestion. (Proper) hydration is crucial for healing acne.” ~ Celestyna
This unique hydrating milk features 22 powerful botanicals and minerals that offer a rainbow of benefits, including helping the skin retain moisture and powerfully repairing signs of aging, scarring, and acne damage. It also provides key support to Illumina by inhibiting multiple acne-causing mechanisms in the skin while helping replenish lipids in the skin barrier. Best of all, Potentci is suitable for even the most sensitive of skin!
Tri-Potency Peptide Technology - A proprietary peptide complex especially geared towards aging, scarred and glycated skins. All relevant protein structures (including collagen and elastin) of the dermal-epidermal junction are stimulated, resulting in improved skin compactness, firmness and tonicity. The complex also stimulates dermal filling, repair and renewal mechanisms of the skin, leading to a decreased volume of coarse wrinkles and acne scars.
Beet Saccharides - Plant sacharrides extracted from beets help the skin retain water moisture. Betaine helps maintain intracellular hydration, helping to prevent damage from environmental stressors such as UV radiation, and oxidation. Unlike traditional humectants, including hyaluronic acid, which draw moisture from the environment, beet betaine adds hydration directly due to it’s abundant source of saccharides and hydrates from within, making it a suitable choice for any climate or environment.
Antarctic Glycoproteins - Protective, yet non-comedogenic glycoprotein derived from an Antarctic blue algae protects skin from physical water loss, pollution, and significantly boosts collagen and elastin production (tests demonstrate: Collagen I increased 128% in 15 days; Collagen IV increased 81% in 15 days; Elastin Levels increased 31% in 15 days).
N-Acetyl Glucosamine - An amino sugar which increases proliferation of skin’s fibroblasts, leading to increased healing of wounds. It also increases collagen expression. Lastly, it causes the skin to increase the production of hyaluronic acid, which results in improved hydration and elasticity.
