At the end of the summer season, you need to give your skin a little bit of a boost. I know my skin starts to lose that summer glow the minute the calendar changes to September, so time to boost it, agreed?
Erborian is launching a new CC Dull Correct Cream which – well the clue’s in the name. This will correct any dullness in your skin, and see you glowing through the first month of Autumn.
It works on a simple colour wheel principle – purple cancels out yellow. So, this purple based cream will cancel out any yellow dullness in the skin. But how does your skin get dull anyway? Listening? The proteins in healthy, radiant skin are colourless – the complexion is even-toned, so proteins are normal and the skin is rich in support fibres. But in the urban environments we live in, our skin is subject to all sorts of aggressors – pollution, UV radiation, fine particles and free radicals. These affect the proteins, and through a process called carbonylation, they take on a yellowish tinge, causing the complexion to look dull.
So, the clever blend of violet pigments in this cream immediately works to counterbalance dull skin. Micro pearls reflect the light, revive the complexion, and give it that California glow, even when winter is on its way.
The new Erborian CC Dull Correct Cream is available from September, at Space NK – £17 15ml, £38 45ml.
Of course, if you want a real glow, then get yourself an appointment at a 5pm salon for a full-on facial – there are SO many to choose from.
