Box Full Of Seoul is back with a lovely mix of winter's must have products. With everything from past favorites to great news, the box is worth checking out!
During the colder months, the skin often needs a little more nourishing and caring products to maintain an optimal moisture balance. In the box you will find, among other things, Balancium comfort ceramide cream from Cosrx, which is a real savior in times of need for dry winter skin.
Balancium comfort ceramide cream is formulated with 3 different types of ceramides that help repair and strengthen the skin's barrier. The skin consists of over 50% ceramides, which are natural building blocks and function a bit like a mortar as they help hold the skin cells together and thus act protectively for the skin. Ceramides are a type of lipid and the skin produces ceramides in the stratum corneum, (the top layer of the epidermis).
Just like collagen and elastin production, ceramides are an ingredient that also decreases with aging or when the skin is exposed to environmental stress such as free radicals and UV exposure. This can lead to the skin's barrier being reduced and weakened, which can often result in the skin becoming irritated, reddened and feeling tight and dry. If you have a reduced barrier, it is important that you give the skin the best conditions for it to be able to repair itself and then avoid more active products. By using skin care products that contain ceramides, you can then help improve or prevent it from becoming impaired. Ceramides are caring components that suits all skin types and is perfect during the winter when the skin is exposed to colder temperatures.
The cream also contains soothing centella asiatica which has an anti-inflammatory effect, which is suitable for reactive skin. It also contains niacinamide, which has a balancing effect on the skin.
In the box you will also find 2 pieces of the Glow & Plump Sheet Mask, which is a moisturizing and glowing mask that also works on fine lines. The sheet is in a moisturizing essence that consists of, among other things, hyaluronic acid, propolis extract and vitamin E. We also find retinyl palmitate, which is a derivative of vitamin A. Vitamin A is a cell communicating ingredient that boosts the skin's collagen & elastin production. In a simplified way, it causes older skin cells to act younger and works on the skin's elasticity and fine lines.
Glow & plump sheetmask also contains the peptide hexapetide-8, which is also known as the botox peptide. Peptides, like vitamin A, are a cell-communicating ingredient and work on the skin's elasticity and fine lines.
