Top Elucent Skincare Products To Use For Visibly Glowing Skin

We all want that beaming, youthful skin. Good news is, whether you are turning 18 or you are over 50 - you can still get that radiant skin. With Elucent range of skin care products- that caters to all age groups- you can achieve that in a matter of days. 

The cut-throat formula that sets Elucent range of products apart is AHAs -  with glycolic acid and lactic acid, as the key ingredients. The two have been scientifically proven to drastically improve and hasten the skin’s natural ability to exfoliate and rejuvenate. Result is a younger looking, firm and glowing skin. 

Other ingredients are: Vitamins E and C - excellent antioxidants - that promote skin elasticity, improves the appearance of aged skin, visibly reduces skin pigmentation, and brightens the skin and Vitamin B3 which improves skin texture and tone.

Here are some of my top Elucent products I recommend to help you achieve that younger looking, firmer, radiating skin in no time. 

Elucent Mild Anti-Ageing Cleanser $29.99

This mild cleanser gently exfoliates and visibly revitalises skin without leaving you dry. To appreciate its full benefits, add Elucent Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser to your beauty regime. Within days you will observe a visibly improved skin texture, and a natural glow. 

It may sting temporarily if your skin is not accustomed to AHAs. However, because of their mild formulation, it is your best bet for starters if you are testing your skin’s sensitivity. 

If no adverse effects are noted you can upgrade to the  Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser  with a higher SPF of 50+. Your skin will thank you!  

Elucent Anti-Ageing Night Moisturiser $49.99

This gentle Moisturiser  regenerates and replenishes skin moisture as you sleep. It visibly reduces the signs of ageing, improves the skin firmness and tone. For full benefits combine it with the fragrance–free Elucent Anti-Ageing Eye Cream to improve the skin contours and dark circles surrounding the eyes and smooth fine lines.  

You will feel a tingling sensation on application because of the AHAs. A little goes along way with this product.  Avoid using on irritated skin.

Elucent Anti-Ageing Serum $49.99

This intensive anti-ageing Serum is the ultimate skin boost. Within weeks of using, it visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your skin.   Despite having the highest level of AHAs at 16 percent-  it gently exfoliates, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles to reveal an improved skin tone and texture. 

Avoid using on irritated skin and sensitive areas like around the eyes and lips. Reported adverse effects include burnt skin, especially near the eyes and blistering. 

I used these products in conjunction with the Elucent Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser for the last 3 weeks. I had never tried these products before and was surprised at the high grade of ingredients they contained and their price point.  I recommend this brand if you are looking for a skincare brand that is affordable,  and will help improve your skin concerns if you have pigmentation, dullness, fine lines or signs of ageing and clarity to the skin.

The Best IPL Device on the Market

 

Forever Young BBL

Why Forever Young BBL Laser Treatment is the best a non-surgical rejuvenation method

Forever Young BBL (BroadBand Light) is one of the unique devices shown to alter the expression of genes linked to an increased lifespan, longevity and aging. Conducting regular laser treatments using Forever Young BBL will make your skin look younger, smoother, and clearer. It uses innovative technology to deliver light therapy targeted at the signs of sun damage and aging to produce an effectively youthful, rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. 

Forever Young BBL treatments target an extensive array of conditions by removing small vessels, redness, freckles, age spots and more for skin rejuvenation purposes. The treatment also controls active acne and reduces unwanted hair. With Forever Young BBL treatments, you can treat all sections of the body eliminating the need for surgery.

Forever young BBL laser treatment’s most important feature is the ability to deal with the hidden layers of the patient’s skin where aging occurs most. The treatment is the only technology that targets the skin’s expression of molecules correlated to aging accurately, encouraging the body’s ability to recreate new, and healthy skin. 

How does the system work?

The laser system uses photothermal energy to gently heat the upper layers of the skin, stimulating the regeneration of cells and taking years off the face, neck, hands or almost any other part of the body - often after just 1 treatment. This occurs as the system works within the dermis to rejuvenate older skin cells from the molecular level. The technology treats any area of the body i.e. the hands, arms, chest, neck, and face, unlike the older lasers. After a recommended set of treatments, the patients will begin to observe symbolic age-defying results along with a more even and clearer expression. 

Forever young BBL laser treatment is advised for the following skin concerns among others:

-    Skin tone, elasticity, and firmness

-    Acne

-    Rosacea

-    Fine lines

-    Age Spots

-    Sunspots

Recovery

Patients will have a mildly flushed and slightly red appearance after leaving from the treatment session but this normally resolves itself after several hours. For pigmented skin, within typically 1-2 weeks, the pigmented treated section darkens, fades, and thereafter flakes off after some time. The patients can also report experiencing slight discomfort during the procedure and no downtime or recovery is required. 

Maintenance of the results

The doctor usually recommends a line of skin care products that are compatible for pre-laser treatment as well as post-laser treatment. These products are your best bet in order to maintain the Forever young BBL treatment results.

Ensure you get professional services

Even though the laser treatment procedure is essentially non-surgical you should research accordingly on the provider’s certifications and training for overseeing the treatment. If you want the best results from your procedure, you should seek the advice of a plastic surgeon certified by the board. Failure to seek professional services could mean the results will not be what you had hoped for. You should always seek consultancy from potential dermatologists and doctors to establish who will fulfill your needs accordingly. 

My Experiance

I was lucky enough to try the BBL treatment at The Manse Clinic in Paddington. So stay tuned to see my results and my discoveries as I document my skins changes over the next few weeks. If this treatment sounds like something you need then make sure you reach out to The Manse Clinic, I had a great experience and Dr Naomi and the staff were extremely professional and well trained in their field.

Three Weeks after BBL

During the BBL treatment, there is a warm sensation you feel from the laser and a mild flick on the skin (like a elastic band flicking the skin), for me I didnt find this painful, I have had other treatments that were more painful. I did flinch a few times but that was only in the sensitive areas like the top lip and the corner of the nose. On a scale of 1 to 1o and 10 being unbearable, I would place this treatment at a 5/6.

After the treatment, my face felt quite hot, the lovely lady looking after me rolled a ice roller over my skin which instantly soothed my skin, I found this part very relaxing. Although my skin felt hot, it didn't appear to look bright red, as you can see from the picture above. My skin actually looked better than before I walked in. I could instantly see a few areas where I had pigmentation, those areas got darker, like spots on my forehead, over the next few days those spots flaked off. Dr Naomi did tell me it is harder to treat redness as you will need more treatments than someone looking to reduce pigmentation. Overall, I'm so happy with the results my skin feels smooth, soft and it looks like the redness has subsided. I'd definately recommend.

Y Theorem Repair Light Serum NAC Y2

This product is great for everyone, especially those who have just had aggressive facial peels and laser treatments. This serum has a very thin consistency that absorbs into the skin almost immediately. Just to note, I used all these products in my review in conjunction with one an other. After 3 days I noticed my skin looked brighter and clearer, the redness on my cheeks and towards my jawline looked more diffused, exactly what I'd like to see happen to my redness. 

 

Cryo Activating Hydra Gel

I only had a small sample pot of this product but I found a little went a long way. So I was able to use this for weeks on end. This product has a light cream consistency and is milky in colour. When applying to your face, the first thing you notice is it is so cold on your skin, so I found it to be really refreshing and cooling on my rosacea. Every evening when I applied this gel I would notice my skin appeared to look like it had no signs of rosacea at all. This product is also very hydrating, I had no signs of dehydration when I wore this on my face. 

Daily Orbit Energising Essence NAC Y2

I used this product after cleansing my skin with a cotton pad, it instantly makes my skin look fresh, I then follow with the Y Theorem Repair Light Serum NAC Y2. It has a slightly thicker consistency than your average toners, but that definitely isn't a negative point, just an observation. This product didnt irritate my skin, or cause flushing to my rosacea. Overall a lovely essence that gives life back to your skin if your looking a little dull.
