L’Occitane’s reformulated Precious Dynamic Youthcare range helps your skin to keep up with your fast pace of life.

 

The skin is a living organ that’s constantly renewing itself. A new skin cell is formed (proliferation) in the deepest layer of the epidermis and matures as it moves to the surface of the skin (differentiation). Changes in the epidermis are due to external factors, which contribute to generating oxidative stress, as well as internal factors, such as a decrease in hyaluronic acid.

You have probably heard of this powerful hydrator, which is renowned for its ability to attract and retain moisture, keeping skin smooth and plumped. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, but as you get older, your skin loses its capacity to produce it, causing levels to go down.

As for oxidative stress – which can be generated by pollution, poor diet and other lifestyle factors – it happens when there’s an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. This can lead to damaged skin cells, which can no longer function properly.

All these factors take a toll on your skin. It loses its plumpness, its texture becomes uneven, fine lines start to form and pores appear larger.

L’Occitane’s reformulated Precious Dynamic Youthcare range helps your skin to keep up with your fast pace of life. At its heart lies a duo of complementary active ingredients: Immortelle essential oil and the dynamic Hyaluronic Acid complex. Immortelle essential oil, which is known to have antioxidant properties, helps to fight against the effects of daily aggressors and helps to promote natural skin renewal.

In the Precious formula, it works in harmony with a new-generation complex: dynamic Hyaluronic Acid. This complex combines hyaluronic acid with silicon – a mineral that acts as a carrier, taking the hyaluronic acid deeper into the epidermis. Twice as powerful as standard hyaluronic acid, the dynamic complex is able to quadruple the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the skin.*

It helps to stimulate cell proliferation, while immortelle essential oil helps cells to mature, so skin can renew itself faster. Fine lines are smoothed out, skin is plumped with moisture and its texture is improved. Amazingly, after just 10 days of use, tests showed a significant acceleration of natural skin renewal.**
