Today’s blog will talk about two products from Biologique Recherché that are the holy grail and back bone of their line: P50T and Lotion P50 PIGM 400.
P50T improves the effectiveness of all other Biologique Recherché products and is the cornerstone of any BR regime! This product removes dead skin cells on a daily basis, helping to keep your skin smoother and softer. It also stimulates cellular renewal, which is essential for radiant skin and to help eliminate impurities on our skin by removing the daily build up of dead skin cells. Another feature of P50T is to enhance epidermal renewal. This is very important because as we age our bodies start to slow down, which results in a slower cell renewal rate and slower cell turn over. In our 20’s cellular turn over is once every 25 days, but by the time we are 50 cellular turnover is approximately once every 45 days.
P50T also helps to to purify and regulate oil secretions on our skin’s surface. This ensures that oil buildup does not trap debris below the surface of the skin, which is one of the causes of breakouts. Pimples can be caused by excess oil, which is made by sebaceous glands that are found around hair follicles. When too much sebum and dead skin cells clog the follicles, they become irritated and inflamed, resulting in pimples, whiteheads, blackhead etc. The exfoliating properties of P50T help to reduce this process.
P50T helps to seal in moisture to keep our skin more hydrated. It does this by locking in existing moisture to prevent our skin from becoming dehydrated. It also helps to balance the pH in the skin, since the health of your skin is directly linked to maintaining the right balance between acidity and alkalinity. For skin to work its best, the acid mantle should be slightly acidic, at 5.5 pH balance. When skin is too alkaline it becomes dry and sensitive, and can potentially cause eczema. When skin has the proper pH balance, it is not too dry or too oily, so it can better absorb antioxidants and other anti-aging ingredients, as well as ward off acne. Because of these properties, daily use of P50T is vital to keeping our skin looking younger and healthy.
P50T is very beneficial for Men as well. It helps to treat and prevent ingrown hairs, leaving a clearer complexion. Its exfoliating properties remove the buildup of dead skin that trap ingrown hairs below the surface of the skin. Regular use morning and night will help to reduce the presence of ingrown hairs.
A few of the ingredients that I love in this product are:
Cider vinegar, which contains citric acid and malic acids. Theses acids have excellent purifying and astringent properties.
Beta-hydroxy acids and salicylic acid, which help to reduce inflammation and penetrate pores easily in order to dissolve dead cells that can cause obstructions in our pores.
Niacinamide, which helps to reduce irritation and redness and is excellent for healing. Niacinamide will also help to fade skin pigmentation.
Finally P50T seals in moisture with the use of Arnica and Natural Moisturizing Factors, creating naturally hydrated skin.
Lotion P50 PIGM 400
Lotion P50 PIGM 400 has all the benefits of P50T as well as the added benefit of helping to reduce hyper-pigmentation and dark spots. We have seen significant reduction in pigmentation on people using this product. It unifies and brightens the complexion thanks to its concentrated active ingredients. In order to maintain your skin and get the best results in the use of P50 PIGM 400, sunscreen is a must. This product when combined with Creme or Emulsion PIGM 400 gives amazing results. Lotion P50 PIGM 400 is an absolute winner in the fight against pigmentation.
