The Power Of Consistency And Experimenting

By maart 5, 2024No Comments

As the founder of LABAREAU, I’ve dedicated my life to understanding and perfecting the art of skincare. Today I want to share some of my personal secrets to maintain radiant & youthful skin.


Consistency is key:

It’s not about quick fixes or overnight miracles: It’s about nurturing your skin every day, providing it with the care and attention it deserves. That’s why I rely on LABAREAU to keep my skin even, glowing and protected against the signs of aging. Our products are formulated with the finest ingredients and backed by years of research, ensuring that your skin receives the love it needs to thrive.

I always add something extra to my daily skincare routine. Today, we’re going to talk about one of the many extra things I use in my routines: Obagi Vitamin C, available at BLOY Institute, is a game-changer when it comes to achieving luminous, youthful skin. Packed with potent L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), these serums work wonders in maintaining hydration and protecting the skin against the harmful rays of the sun. They come in three different percentages: 10%, 15% and 20%.

I use the 15% serum for a supercharged glow and more youthful-looking skin. It is ideal for normal to combination skin types. The 10% is great and gentle enough for a more sensitive skin, and the 20% works best for people that have been using the Vitamin C serum for a while.


Why add something extra?

Every day is unique, much like our own moods and energies. There are days when our skin glows effortlessly. However, there are also days when it just doesn’t go the way you would like it to be, indicating that it needs a little more nourishment, and a bit more protection, or perhaps an extra boost to reclaim its vibrancy.

The ability to adapt, to listen to the needs of our skin, and to respond accordingly. Just as we adjust our daily routines to accommodate shifts in our bodies and minds, we should do the same with our skincare rituals. 

That’s where the concept of adding that “extra piece” to our skincare routine comes into play. Whether it’s a potent serum infused with vitamin C or a luxurious hydrating mask, these supplementary products serve as the missing puzzle piece, completing our skincare routine.


What sets Obagi Professional-C serums apart from the rest? 

  1. Powerful Antioxidant Protection: Vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant that helps neutralise free radicals, preventing damage to the skin caused by environmental stressors like pollution and UV radiation.
  2. Collagen Production: L-ascorbic acid stimulates collagen production, helping to keep your skin firm and youthful-looking.
  3. Brightening Effects: Regular use of Obagi Professional-C serums can help fade dark spots and uneven pigmentation, leaving your skin looking brighter and more even-toned.
  4. Sun Protection: In addition to its antioxidant properties, vitamin C also helps boost the effectiveness of sunscreen, providing an extra layer of protection against harmful UV rays.

So, whether you’re looking to maintain your youthful glow or give your skin a much-needed boost, Obagi Professional-C serums are a must-have in your skincare arsenal. Trust me, your skin will thank you for it.

With love,
