Brighten Up With Bakuchiol

Brighten Up With Bakuchiol

Ahh, Summer!  It's the season to kick back, relax, and enjoy being outside. 

Spending time out in the sun without taking proper protection measures is proven to lead to sun damage.  This type of damage typically shows up on the surface of your skin years down the road as visible signs of aging like sunspots!

I'm sure we can all agree that UVA/UVB rays are harmful all year long but are especially damaging during the summer months when our exposure levels are higher thanks to spending long days outdoors.

Prevention is better than a cure.

If your goal is to prevent summer sunspots, we would like to introduce to you Luzern's Dual Advanced Retinol Complex. 

This advanced duo of Pure Retinol and Bakuchiol improves the look of skin tone, elasticity, firmness, radiance, and brightness.

This complex can be found in Luzern Nuit Luxe and Nuit Intensive.

Benefits of using Bakuchiol and Retinol Together

Bakuchiol is a natural partner for Retinol because both ingredients have similar and distinct benefits, with the similarities building on the results. The combination of Bakuchiol and Retinol reveals a brighter, fresher-looking complexion that might have your closest friends asking, "What are you doing to make your skin look so good?"

Here are the top reasons why these two ingredients work so well together:

  1. Bakuchiol is also an antioxidant that complements the antioxidant ability of vitamin A, providing your skin with improved protection from visible signs of environmental stressors and boosting its ability to repair signs of past damage.

  2. Bakuchiol's soothing benefit enhances the skin's ability to tolerate Retinol. If you've had a sensitized reaction to a retinol product, you may find that this winning combining will provide you with superior benefits without signs of sensitivity or flaking.

Can I still use Retinol in the summer?

Yes, you do not need to cut back on Retinol during the summer.   If your goal is to prevent summer sun spots, Luzern's Dual Advanced Retinol Complex is one of the most active ingredients you can use to avoid sunspots during the summer.

Can I use Luzern Dual Advanced Retinol Complex with other products?

The answer is yes! We're thrilled to inform you that there is no research showing any issues with combining additional brighten products to your regimen.  If fact, this complex can improve the results from other active treatment products you may use, including products that help to visibly firm skin, reduce wrinkles, brighten a dull skin tone, and repair signs of environmental damage.

We recommend the following Luzern products to enhance your Glow –

L'Essentials Au Vin Exfoliating Peel Pads

Nuit Hydra Enzyme Masque

Always remember the daily use of broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the results.

La Defense Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30
