Breakout Defence + Age Repair
Previously known as Blemish AOX™.
Living in busy cities or polluted areas can take its toll on skin. This is because environmental damage is a key contributor to blemishes and premature ageing. Fight back with Breakout Defence + Age Repair. This powerful anti-ageing serum uses patented copper PCA, a revolutionary antioxidant with incredible free radical-fighting abilities, to shield the skin from environmental stress. 100% oil-free, the lightweight serum is ideal for blemish-prone skin and won’t clog pores. It features a blend of botanical extracts clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Blemish-fighting actives like soothing niacinamide and beta-glucan increase the skin’s ability to repair itself while visibly reducing breakouts and scarring. Over time, imperfections are prevented, skin firmness is improved and sun-damaged skin is visibly renewed.
How it works
Every day skin is exposed to free radicals generated from UV rays and pollutants. This can cause a cascade of damage including the breakdown of collagen, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles and inflammation. Free radicals can also oxidise the oils in our pores, creating the perfect environment for blemish-causing bacteria (P. acnes ) to thrive. As a potent antioxidant, Copper PCA shields the skin from free radical attack to help banish blemishes and protect our skin’s collagen. Meanwhile, anti-inflammatory niacinamide helps to soothe angry skin, while beta-glucan and nature’s best botanical extracts back up the skin’s natural defence system.
Copper PCA – A patented and revolutionary ingredient with 40x greater antioxidant performance than vitamin C. This helps to soothe inflammation and protect the skin from future breakouts.
Niacinamide – Otherwise known as vitamin B3, this soothing anti-inflammatory quickly reduces redness and irritation caused by blemishes while strengthening the skin’s protective barrier. It is also able to regulate sebum production to prevent blocked pores.
beta-Glucan – A natural extract derived from oats, beta-glucan enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself while providing immediate comfort to inflamed skin.
Botanical Extracts – Multiple botanical extracts, including ginseng and centella, provide enhanced antioxidant power while softly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
After cleansing in the morning and evening, blend a small amount of Breakout Defence + Age Repair across face, neck and décolletage. Leave to absorb before moisturising.
