Google “What is the number one cause of skin ageing?” and right at the top of the list of answers will be SUN EXPOSURE.
Photo-damage is the term used for the characteristic changes to skin induced by chronic UVA and UVB exposure.
Skincare brand Time Bomb, has recently launched Over-Exposed Sun Damage Rescue, a new treatment formulated to help repair and restore sun damaged skin.
HOW DOES IT REPAIR DAMAGE?
Omega9XEster penetrates skin’s top layers to counteract dry, rough, rigid, leathery texture associated with photo-damage.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Over-Exposed Sun Damage Rescue visibly addresses the impact of UV exposure with clinically proven, heavy-duty anti-oxidants and deep emollients:
- Renews the look and feel of dry, tight, leathery skin
- Helps restore skin’s natural radiance and resilience
- Visibly improves sign of long-term photo damage
The first skin care formula to harness the power of Omega9XEster, a vegetable-derived emollient repurposed from saddle manufacturers who use it to maintain and restore leather to optimal smooth, supple texture.
A proprietary, bioactive Milk Peptide Complex helps kick-start your skin into natural repair mode, encouraging production of hyaluronic acid and healthy collagen fibres to keep your skin full, firm and smooth.
High levels of anti-oxidant Pycnogenol help inhibit the impact of UV rays to reduce visible signs of photo-damage. Clinical tests confirm Pycnogenol has also been shown to lower skin pigment intensity, so skin tone appears more even.
HOW TO APPLY
Apply after cleansing and moisturising. Smooth over your skin morning and morning and evening on the entire face.
Over-Exposed is not a sunscreen and doesn’t protect against sunburn. Always use sunscreen on top during the day.
Forever cautious, especially for a product that’s to be applied to my chest – my targeted treatment area, I completed a 7 day patch test without any adverse reaction.
The nude coloured cream, which is fragrance free, takes a couple of minutes to fully absorb.
There’s no greasy residue and skin does have an immediate ‘smoother’ appearance. Because of this, I also apply the cream to the back of my hands which do look ‘aged.’
My fault entirely, because I don’t like the feeling of anything ‘greasy’ on my hands and I used to be very lax about hand creams and sunscreen and honestly, they have really suffered. Let this be a lesson to anyone who thinks they don’t need to wear sunscreen!
I’m looking forward to seeing the long-term effects of Over-Exposed. I’m so pleased that new skin care research and technology means that creams no longer just sit ‘on top’ of skin anymore, but are able to penetrate and work on a deeper level.
