Skin Renewal and a Sunscreen Partnership
Our Body Renewal Serum is unique to our line of LUMEN skincare products, as it is the only product formulated specifically for use on broad areas of the body. This lightweight, silky serum offers robust anti-aging results, provides antioxidant protection, and leaves the skin with a soft, powdery finish that won't feel greasy or heavy under clothing.
An Antioxidant-rich Formula
Body Renewal Serum contains a cocktail of potent antioxidants, including vitamins C and E and ferulic acid. These ingredients help reduce oxidative stress and combat the effects of environmental pollutants. Furthermore, antioxidants play a vital role in protecting the skin (making this product an ideal companion to a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or higher.)
The Gentle Retinoid
In addition to antioxidant vitamins C and E, Body Renewal Serum is fortified with vitamin A. This gentle retinoid offers the benefits of other retinol products without any associated irritation or redness. Furthermore, vitamins A and C are the cofactors of collagen and elastin production. When these two ingredients are used together, they stimulate these "building-block" proteins within the skin.
Collagen and elastin production begins to slow as we get older. As these two natural proteins are responsible for keeping the skin firm and elastic, their minimized growth leads to signs of premature aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, using skincare products containing both vitamin C and vitamin A, such as Body Renewal Serum, can go a long way in improving your skin's overall appearance and health.
The Role of Ferulic and Salicylic Acid
Our Body Renewal Serum contains two acids: ferulic and salicylic. Ferulic acid helps stabilize vitamin C and improves the potency of the other antioxidants within this product. Meanwhile, the addition of salicylic acid provides gentle exfoliation to smooth the skin's surface, improve texture, and reveal a softer, more supple complexion.
With the combination of gentle exfoliation, collagen and elastin stimulation, antioxidant protection, and barrier lipids to help keep the skin hydrated, Body Renewal Serum is the perfect addition to any anti-aging regimen.
Why You Should Always Pair with Sunscreen
Sunscreen is the single most important skincare product you can use. Broad-spectrum sunscreens help guard against both UVA and UVB rays as well as protect against the aging effects of blue light. Since antioxidants provide additional protection from outside stressors (including UV radiation), products high in antioxidants work particularly well in conjunction with your favorite SPF 30+ sunscreen.
