Bqk Radiance Serum: Turn that pigmentation frown upside down!
Pigmentation is a common skin condition that doesn’t discriminate!
While sun-worshippers are often associated with an increased susceptibility to pigmentation, overexposure to UVA and UVB rays isn’t the only cause of pigmentation.
Anyone can experience pigmentation at any stage of life. Other common causes including hormonal imbalances, vitamin deficiencies, genetics, and the one every person’s skin loves to hate…ageing!
What causes pigmentation?
Pigmentation occurs when an imbalance of melanin production results in darker coloured patches on the skin. It can occur anywhere on the body but often appears on the face, feet and hands.
While it doesn’t usually cause pain or discomfort, pigmentation can indicate sun affected skin which is a higher risk factor for skin abnormalities, including cancer. Because of potential ongoing implications of pigmentation, it’s always best to avoid and treat the condition where possible.
How to reduce pigmentation
Pigmentation is hard to remove. Traditional pigmentation products do exist, but these are usually formulated with retinoids and acids designed to bleach the cells to reduce the patches. These treatments can harm healthy cells and lead to skin sensitisation.
Pigmentation doesn’t usually cure pain or discomfort, so many people simply learn to live with it.
Treating pigmentation the Biologi way: Bqk Radiance Serum
Bqk Radiance Serum harnesses the power of the active phytonutrients found in quandong and Kakadu plum.
Consisting of a day and night time ritual for excellent results, the active ingredients in the native Australian fruits penetrate the cells to brighten the complexion and improve the appearance of skin pigmentation.
The morning serum is an extract of Kakadu plum. Bursting with plant-based vitamin C, ellagic acid and gallic acid, Kakadu plum attacks pigmentation on a cellular level. The phytonutrients work together to slow down melanin production and protect the skin from free radical aggressors which can cause pigment changes in the skin.
Quandong was specifically chosen for Bqk Radiance evening serum because of its potent levels of tryptophan, ferulic acid, rutin and chlorogenic acid. Working in synergy, these powerful phytonutrients encourage healing and prevent future pigment forming.
Bqk Serum is a revolutionary combination of single-plant ingredients chosen because of their pigment fighting nutrients.
Our simplified skincare routine to avoid pigmentation and reduce the appearance of existing pigmentation is as follows:
- Cleanse with Bc Refresh Cleanser
- Apply Bqk morning serum (Kakadu plum extract)
- Apply sunscreen
- Remove makeup with a microfibre cloth
- Cleanse with Bc Refresh Cleanser
- Apply Bqk evening serum (quandong extract)
Exfoliate once to twice a week using a gentle exfoliant with active ingredients to improve complexion and contribute to an overall glow.
Further tips for using Bqk Radiance Serum:
Dry skin thoroughly before use
Exposure to water can reduce the potency of the active ingredients and reduce results. We don’t add water to our range of clean cosmeceutical serums and recommend waiting until the face and hands are completely dry before use.
Don’t layer serums
We often get asked why Bqk Radiance is the only serum that’s a day and night duo. Combining active ingredients can actually cancel out the power of the natural nutrients making the serums less effective, so we recommend you always use one serum in the morning and one in the evening to get the full benefit, never together.
Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Pigmentation is often the result of too much exposure to UVA and UVB rays. Apply sunscreen every morning after your Biologi serum to protect the skin and stop further pigmentation from forming.
Not just for pigmentation
While the active nutrients were chosen to combat pigmentation, Bqk Radiance is a multi-use product like all serums in the range of clean cosmeceuticals. If you don’t experience pigmentation or you’re looking for a product containing nourishing and restorative actives, Bqk Radiance offers the following further benefits:
- Reduces inflammation and redness
- Balances complexion
- Hydrates and nourishes cells
