Amino acids are found in a growing number of beauty products and for good reason. These fantastic building blocks help to maintain your skin’s hydration, texture and resilience so you have a supple, healthy complexion.
We have looked at some of the products we sell at Pure Beauty that come jam-packed with the amino acids that could change the way you take care of your skin forever.
Let’s get this party started with the Dermalogica Active Moist that can be used daily to help keep dehydration away. The easy-to-apply formula combines silk amino acids with plant extracts and together, they smooth and improve the skin’s texture. Lemon, watercress, burdock, and ivy have been added to the mix as they help refine the skin. For even more soothing benefits, extracts of lavender, mallow, and cucumber are in there too.
Amino acids also play a role in the fantastic Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Serum. This clinically proven serum comes with alpha-hydroxy acids, and a patented tri-enzyme, so your complexion is stunning. It’s the amino acids in this serum that help to smooth and tone the skin, while vitamin C brightens it – something that is key in the cold, dark winter months.
You will also find those amazing amino acids in the glorious Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion. Used on a regular basis, this product gives you a luxurious, gradual tan and at the same time, your skin is pampered and moisturised. Vegetan™, which comes from wheat, works with amino acids to subtly colour the skin leaving it with a healthy, sun-kissed glow that is kept hydrated thanks to antioxidant-rich green tea and red algae extract.
Pearl powder is naturally rich in amino acids, calcium, sugars, and peptides which is why it’s blended into the Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer SPF30. This beauty bag essential is great as smoothing away fine lines and also helps to brighten skin. Velvety silicones have been mixed with soy protein to even skin texture, while the pearl powder and natural earth minerals offer a neutral tint to enhance luminosity and radiance. You can either go bare and just wear this over your moisturiser, or it can be used to help fill fine lines so that make-up goes on smoothly, and stays that way! The choice is yours.
Masks are a great way to look after your skin, and the Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask is a great choice. This is super hydrating and comes with the purest therapeutic plant extracts blended into a unique cream base. Honey, which is rich in amino acids and nourishing enzymes, has been added, together with bergamot and samphire that sooth, nourish and support the skin so it looks and feels amino acid amazing.
