Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop
The Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop (what a long name…) is not just exceptional because of its colour. I started using it, since I got it and never went back. It is highly concentrated and can be easily integrated into any routine.
I think, this product is interesting for anyone and not only for people in their 30s and up, who want to battle the first signs of aging. It is also good for sensitive skin types and people who want to calm down breakouts. There is something for everyone in it!
What does it do?
improves complexion and luminosity of the skin
encourages collagen production (a must for an anti-aging regimen)
accelerates the skin’s renewal process (better elasticity)
reduces pigmentation (age spots!)
lessens appearance of fine lines
The Main Ingredients
EGF means epidermal groth factor. It is responisble for skin cell renewal (good also for wound healing, e.g. active breakouts) and it has been clinical proven. Yay!)
But there is also a downside to this, as EGF is good at stimulating cell proliferation, you should only use it when you are free of skin cancer risk factors (e.g. a lot of moles, history of skin cancer). Because the Peptide would also help to spread and renew skincells, which are already harmed.
The Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor also stimulates cell growth and helps with the synthesis of collagen and other extracellular-matrix (the gooey stuff between cells).
This organic ingredient gives the drops its blue colour. It is also called “Azulene”, which is a lot easier to remember. It comes from a German chamomile herb and has various skin benefits. It is non irritating, anti infalmmatory and reduces swelling, to name a few. That makes it a great product for acne skin types, too!
It is a compound, which can be already found inside our bodys. It helps to repair our protective barrier and is also great for wound healing.
How to use it
I use it in the morning and evening for better results. At first I cleanse and tone my face. Then I pour a few drops into hy hands and pat it in. I concentrate it on the areas I need it the most (fine lines, breakouts, rashes).
It sinks in quite fast and leaves your skin a tiny bit sticky afterwards. But this is not a big deal, just make sure that it is fully absorbed and then continue with your skincare routine.
These drops are so full of high potent ingredients, which are well liked by my sensitive skin. I can see a difference in redness, reducing or calming breakouts and I use it as a prevention from fine lines and wrinkles.
I also have often flaky and dry skin around my nose, which I also treat with this blue water.
So I can honestly recommend this to anyone, but be sure to patch test it first. ;) Although it has anti- allergic ingredients, you can never be too sure!
