The Skin Matrix Skin Perfection Serum has been in formulation for well over 6 months now and I have to say that I am extremely glad we took the time to create what I feel is one of the best super skin serums on the market today. So what does the Skin Perfection Serum achieve:
  • lightening and brightening of the skin
  • antioxidants
  • combats anti-ageing
  • banishes blemishes
  • plumps and hydrates the skin
  • soothes sensitive skins
  • great for rosacea/eczema/psoriasis skins
The Skin Perfection Serum is created for all skin types, and if you only wanted to use one serum in your skin care routine, this would be it. I have combined my knowledge of skin care and cosmetic chemistry over the last 14 years with the expertise of a biochemist and taken the best ingredients to target and address common skin care concerns today and bottled it. We all know how important antioxidants are in our lives these days. Many of us take antioxidant supplements. I have also seen the benefits my clients have received over these years from using an antioxidant skin serum. An antioxidant serum is the best way to combat free radicals in the skin. A free radical is a rouge atom or molecule, that contains an unpaired electron. They are closely related to oxidative damage, hence the reason why using an antioxidant skin serum is so important for all of us. The use of an antioxidant serum in your skin care routine will help to neutralize the radical by donating an electron, thus breaking the oxidative chain reaction process and therefore maintaining healthy skin cells. I have incorporated the powerful and effective antioxidants: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Green Leaf Tea Extract, Pomegranate Oil and Niacinamide (Vit B3) The Skin Perfection Serum is also a brightening serum. It addresses the needs of clients wishing to have a brightened, even toned, healthy complexion. We have incorporated ingredients such as licorice root extract and niacinamide which both have proven brightening effects on the skin as well as being powerful antioxidants. Licorice Root Extract along with Vitamin C when used topically will help block tyrosinase an enzyme responsible for the formation of pigmentation. This is a brightening serum that does not leave you sun sensitive. I have not included any vitamin A within the Skin Perfection Serum as I wanted this serum to be used morning and night after cleansing. Also I wanted it to be soothing enough that all skin types can use it and benefit from it. In the near future Skin Matrix will be bringing out a Serum, solely dedicated to Vitamin A. Licorice and Niacinamide are also fantastic for sensitive skins, they help reduce inflammation associated with acne breakouts and eczema, effectively reducing the redness associated with these skin conditions. They are very calming and healing ingredients and are key in returning the skin to a healthy state. They help to restore the skins barrier making it stronger and more resilient to the external environment. When treating these skin types, restoration of the acid mantle (or skins natural barrier) is imperative if results are to be seen. Over use of harsh chemical products strip the acid mantle and leave the skin vulnerable to bacteria and other pathogens. Who doesn’t want to look younger?? Niacinamide has been scientifically proven to be an extremely effective anti ageing ingredient, hence making this also a fabulous anti ageing serum. The 2 enzymes in niacinamide NADH and NADPH are what gives our cells energy and natural lipids responsible for cellular growth. As we get older these 2 enzymes slow down in production, but topical niacinamide helps to keep the level of production of these enzymes going. The enzymes also contribute to a healthy acid mantle, which in turns has a positive effect on the ageing process. Niacinamide will also help with giving the skin a true hydration, deeply nourishing the skin and feeding our cells necessary nutrients. An anti ageing serum would not be complete without Vitamin C. This ingredient is a powerful antioxidant, acne controller, skin lightener, collagen and elastin producing machine! It will give the skin a natural protection as well from harmful UVA and UVB rays. It works hand in hand with Vitamin E which is also in this super skin serum. Cross linking of collagen is prevented with this form of Vitamin C along with the prevention of protein oxidation. These are critical for the protection of the collagen that already exists in our skin. We have chosen this type of Vitamin C as it does not oxidize quickly like a lot of Vitamin C ingredients out there, nor does it exfoliate the skin like Ascorbic Acid. It is perfect for even the most sensitive of skins as it is non irritating. One of the newest advances in the anti ageing industry is the ingredient Heptapeptide-8 which mimics the actions of the protein Laminin 5 in the skin. Studies have indicated that laminin-5 is necessary for the health and appearance of the skin and is directly involved with skin ageing. Clinical studies indicate that using Heptapeptide over a 21 day period helps tonify the skin, improves its smoothness and helps regenerate and renew the skin on a cellular level. Heptapeptide also stimulates the biosynthesis of fibronectin, which is a glycoprotein that assists in the process of wound healing and is involved in cell adhesion, cellular growth, migration and differentiation. To top this serum off, we have included one of the most powerful hydrating ingredients available that will not clog your pores or leave your skin feeling oily. Hyaluronic acid makes this skin perfecting serum a true hydrating serum. The fountain of youth is what Hyaluronic acid is referred to as within the industry. We have naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our skin, it lubricates our joints and eyes and is found in our cartilage, bones and blood vessels. The fluid that surrounds our collagen and elastin is hyaluronic acid rich along with water and protein. Sunlight and pollutants/free radicals destroy our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid in the skin so the use of a hyaluronic acid serum is imperative for all skins in the prevention and treatment of ageing skin.
