Aprotie Circe – Smooth Up Intensive Serum
The structure of the skin attests to its youthful and healthy look. When well-nourished and hydrated, it is smooth, glowing and better reflects light. With age, unhealthy lifestyle and due to unfavourable external factors (air pollution, UVA and UVB radiation) the skin starts to become dry, and its pores begin to be more visible. Above all, its natural ability self-regeneration slows down. Aprotie Circe Smooth Up Intensive Serum concentrates on solving these problems. Thanks to the combination of active ingredients (vitamin A in microcapsules, astaxanthin, EGF, polyphenols), the product works not only on the outer layer of the skin, but also reaches its deeper layers.
Vitamin A is a known antioxidant, however it is fairly quickly degraded by light and high temperature. In order to retain its activity on the skin, TIENS has employed microcapsule technology. As a result, the applied product initially works on the epidermis, smoothing it, and then reaches deeper layers of the skin aiding their regeneration. Vitamin A protects the proteins responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity from degradation, hence exhibiting anti-wrinkle action. The remaining ingredients of the serum improve skin’s metabolism, and protect DNA postponing the effects of ageing.
The serum contains vitamin A, which neutralises free radicals responsible for ageing of the body. The effect of vitamin A on skincare is mostly based on stimulating the processes that accelerate tissue regeneration. This vitamin stimulates collagen production, preventing the skin from losing its firmness, it also accelerates cellular metabolism. Astaxanthin, another ingredient of the serum is one of the strongest antioxidants. Unlike other antioxidants, astaxanthin possesses a unique structure allowing it to locate within the double layer of the cellular membranes, aiding their protection and stability. By working under the surface of the skin, it improves its hydration and elasticity. Within the dermis layer, it causes an increased production of collagen and elastin. Another ingredient of the serum – EGF – epidermal growth factor, improves wound healing, skin nourishment and hydration, stimulates divisions within the basal layer of the epidermis, leading and reduction of wrinkles. EGF is distributed in the body by the male hormone (androgen). In the blood of women, the levels of this hormone are significantly lower, hence EGF must be provided to the ageing skin from outside. The composition of serum has been enriched with tea tree oil containing polyphenols. In contrast to dry green tea extract, the active ingredients of tea tree oil are present in levels and proportions more closely resembling the ones in natural tea leaves. It protects from free radicals and degradation both the lipophilic lips layers of the skin and the hydrophilic components of the epidermis. It enhances the skins protection against UVB/UVA. It is also beneficial for oily skin and skin prone to imperfections since it exhibits antibacterial and antiseptic action as well as regulates the production of sebum.
The ingredients of the serum:
improve skin elasticity,
reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by smoothing them,
improve skin hydration,
soothe the effects of excessive sun exposure,
enhance repair within the deeper layers of the skin,
stimulate the production of collagen and elastin postponing skin ageing and loss of firmness.
reinforce the cuticle layer of the skin, rendering it more resistant to damage and slowing down loss of water.
improve the general condition of the skin — making it lighter and smoother.
Apply the serum twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. After cleansing the skin, apply a few drops of the product on the face, neck, and the skin surrounding the eyes and mouth. Gently massage into the skin.
