HOW TO USE

HOW TO USE the Urban Defence Duo:
(Anti-pollution Facial Serum and Antioxidant Facial Oil)
  • After cleansing apply 1-2 drops of Anti-pollution Facial Serum to your fingertips and tap gently into your face and neck. Smooth into your skin using upward strokes until fully absorbed.
  • Now apply your Antioxidant Facial Oil by warming 2-3 drops between your fingertips and gently massage into your face and neck.

LISA’S SKINCARE TIPS.

URBAN DEFENCE Anti-Pollution Facial Serum

  • For best results use daily underneath your favourite facial oil or moisturiser.
  • Apply facial serum to thoroughly cleansed, warm, damp skin – when your pores are open and slightly moist, the active ingredients can penetrate the skin more easily.
  • Apply tiny dots of serum all over your face and blend it in quickly with light upward strokes. Whilst the serum is still wet, tap it in gently with clean fingertips – the tapping motion encourages the serum to sink fully into the deeper layers of the skin and it stimulates the effectiveness of the ingredients.
  • Do let the serum dry (to the touch) before applying your oil or moisturiser over the top.
  • If you are using multiple skincare products, layer them strategically. It’s best to start with the thinnest consistency product first, and work your way up to the heaviest – serums go on first, followed by oils, then creams.

URBAN DEFENCE Antioxidant Facial Oil

  • Less is more with my facial oils, a little goes a long way – applying it with warm hands will make the product go much further.
  • Avoid the delicate eye area with facial oils.
  • I recommend starting with just one or two drops initially, you can always add more if you need to. If you do find you need more, let the first layer sink in before applying the next layer.
  • If time permits try to spend a couple of minutes massaging the oil into your skin, this will help it penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate circulation for a healthy glowing luminescence.
  • If you are in a rush, try adding 1-2 drops of oil to your day or night cream.
  • For an added dewy, healthy looking glow, add 1 drop of your favourite facial oil to your foundation – less foundation is then needed.
  • If you are using multiple skincare products, layer them strategically. It’s best to start with the thinnest consistency product first, and work your way up to the heaviest – serums go on first, followed by oils, then creams.

“A REALLY FRESH DELICATE SCENT...”

I absolutely love these new products... Last night I used the Urban Defence Facial Serum followed by the Activating Night Cream. My skin has been really bad recently and it felt immediately nourished and invigorated. I could feel my skin tighten and rebalance! This morning, I used the Omega Facial Serum for dry, dehydrated skin – I wasn’t keen on the scent when I sniffed straight from the bottle, but once I put it on, it was a really fresh, delicate scent and with the Illuminating Day Lotion on top, it smelt lovely.

They make my skin feel hydrated, smooth and younger, they smell and feel great, and they make my skincare routine a real pleasure!

“I’M HOOKED... MY SKIN IS TRANSFORMED AND GLOWING.”

I was sceptical about an all-natural skincare range because of my long standing battle with dry skin and nothing ever working, but I thought I'd give the Antioxidant Facial Oil a go. I am hooked, after just a couple of days of using it my skin is transformed and glowing, the lightweight texture and divine smell make it a luxury to use. This is a product I can't live without.

“…IT REALLY REHYDRATES MY SKIN AFTER A NIGHT’S SLEEP.”

I use the Antioxidant Facial Oil after cleansing in the morning as it really rehydrates my skin after a night’s sleep. The Illuminating Day Lotion works really well on top of it, as it’s so light and refreshing and it balances out any excess oil – and the scents really complement each other.

KEY INGREDIENTS AND THEIR BENEFITS

KEY INGREDIENTS AND THEIR BENEFITS

URBAN DEFENCE Anti-Pollution Facial Serum

Korean Ginseng

Rich in phytonutrients, Korean Ginseng has incredible rejuvenating properties, it: stimulates the skin’s metabolism; rids the build up of pollutants and toxins; eliminates dead cell skin cells to reveal healthy new skin; and increases collagen production, which helps tone, firm and plump the skin from within to reveal a fresh, healthy and energised look.

Red Sea Algae

Reap the benefits from the healing and rejuvenating power of antioxidant-rich seaweed. The intelligent gene set of this sea moss has learnt how to cope with environmental stress, by developing an advanced anti-pollution matrix to mitigate the effects of accumulating toxins.

Packed with essential vitamins (A, B, C, D and K) for healthy looking skin, Red Sea Algae is a powerful antioxidant, which optimises the skins defences increasing its capacity to resist damage caused by environmental toxins. It neutralises free radicals; clarifies and soothes stressed skin; and locks in moisture to keep it profoundly hydrated, diminishing the look of fatigue.

Phyto-Vie Defence™

This cutting-edge botanical ingredient keeps skin looking as healthy as possible for as long as possible, by feeding the skin with antioxidants that equip it to fight against the daily damage of free radicals. It is made from tung (China wood) and rapeseed oils, and works by forming a long-lasting invisible shield on the skin, delivering superior protection from damage caused by pollutants and environmental aggressors.

Red Raspberry Seed Extract

Raspberries are full of sweet, skin-loving surprises. This potent antioxidant is exceptionally high in vitamin E and omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids (EFA’s), which help to protect, revitalise and condition the skin. Boasting an Impressive 84% content of these EFA’s, this seed extract provides the skin vital defence from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Sensitive skins can also rejoice, as it provides a lipid barrier of protection and moisture.

Oat Beta Glucans

A little-known but highly effective antioxidant, oat beta glucans protect the skin against everyday environmental aggressors by demolishing invading pathogens, which are the main causes of stressed out skin. They lock in moisture, soothing and healing, and have the ability to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to plump out wrinkles.

URBAN DEFENCE Antioxidant Facial Oil

Alpine Rose Stem Cell

Harsh environmental stressors such as wind and dryness cause healthy skin to prematurely age, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and a tired, lack-lustre complexion. The ravages of weather, dehydration and toxins in the air also weaken the skin’s ability to act as a barrier against the outside world. Scientists have long sought a solution to strengthen skin from such onslaughts… and the answer may be in the Alpine Rose.

This highly resistant flower is one of the most typical and prominent alpine plants that flourishes high in the Swiss Alps and Pyrenees. It has unique resilience and regenerative abilities, allowing it to thrive in the extreme conditions of its high-altitude habitat, enduring freezing temperatures and dry air. It has developed impressive strategies to protect itself against dehydration and the attack of free radicals and pathogens. These stressors would quickly destroy the plant if it were not for its ‘resistance-charged’ stem cells, which are scientifically classed as totipotent – able to continuously regenerate cells throughout life, allowing these plants to live up to 100 years.

Stem cells extracted from the Alpine Rose (Rhododendron Ferrugineum) were shown to have the same protective effect on human skin, as they did with the plants own flowers.

Epidermal skin cells are responsible for skin cell replenishment, but as we age, epidermal cells take 50% longer to be replaced. One scientific study showed that epidermal stem cells’ ability to form colonies (a key measure of their vitality) increased by as much as 75% when penetrated with a 0.15% Alpine rose stem cell extract, indicating their potential for renewal. Skin penetrated with an extract of Alpine rose stem cells is better able to fend off environmental stress and stay more vibrant. This resistance-charged stem cell (PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose) restores skin’s resilience, protecting skin against dehydration, oxidation and damaging free radicals.

Black Cherry Seed

This gorgeous emollient oil is naturally hydrating. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and E, Black Cherry Seed oil is especially beneficial for inflamed skin. The vitamins and nutrients contained within the fruit are known to play an important role in collagen synthesis and skin healing processes. The oil is abundant in Oleic Acid and Linoleic Acid, essential fatty acids that help to restore, replenish, nourish and hydrate the skin, whilst helping to defend it from UV stress.

Rosemary co2 Extract

A must-use for busy lifestyles, this natural antioxidant provides incredible protection against oxidative damage, UV stress and glycation (caused by too much sugar intake), reducing the accumulation of skin damage over time, for healthier looking skin.

CoQ10

This antioxidant-rich enzyme – found naturally in the body – is responsible for producing energy, neutralising free radicals and keeping skin cells healthy and young looking. CoQ10 levels significantly decrease with age (particularly over the age of 30) impeding the skins ability to produce collagen and elastin, causing skin to wrinkle and sag. Using CoQ10 topically, helps to keep skin in optimal health, improving firmness and elasticity, whilst protecting against oxidative damage and premature ageing.

Pomegranate Extract

This incredible botanical extract is a ‘super juice’ for the skin, promoting firmer, smoother and more radiant, even-toned skin. It contains Punicic Acid (omega 5) proven to aid in the regeneration of skin cells – and if you suffer from acne or rosacea, it’s extremely calming.

Packed with powerful antioxidants, it provides the skin vital defences from harmful UVA and UVB rays during the day, and it works hard to repair any DNA damage overnight.

FRAGRANCED WITH 100% NATURAL ESSENTIAL OILS…

Fragranced with Pink Grapefruit, May Chang, Geranium and Ginger.
This uplifting blend of essential oils has a zesty, fresh fragrance and helps to balance, tone and revive the skin, having a positive effect on the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.
