A youthful skin. Something that many people dream and crave for. But how do you attain them? What products should you use for your skin? Drugstore beauty products or high-end beauty products? As someone new to skin care and someone who wants to try a new skin regime and routine this article might come in handy for you as you can avoid an expensive mistake.

There has always been a never-ending debate on whether drugstore beauty products are as effective as high-end beauty products and if one should fork out extra bucks for a high-end beauty product. In general, expensive doesn’t always mean better. A product could be expensive because of the brand image that it carries, the marketing and also its packaging

There are 2 important things that you should pay attention to before buying a beauty product. The first is the active ingredients and secondly the technology used to develop and produce the product. Many drugstore and high-end beauty products share the same active ingredients with the difference being the concentration. They could also share the same technology.

The Big Question

The big question is, will it be possible to get a beauty product that shares the same active ingredients and technology without burning a hole in your pocket? Yes, it is possible with L’oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Pre-Essence.

Bifida Ferment Lysate

Fermented essence has been very popular in Korea, Japan and Taiwan. In these countries fermented essence is widely used in health and beauty products. The active ingredient in L’oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Pre-Essence is Bifida Ferment Lysate which produces fermented essence which is responsible for protecting the skin against UV-induced skin damage and provides an anti-aging effect. It helps to activate the skin’s youth with the renewing power of fermented seeds. It is a type of probiotic obtained from the fermentation of Bifida. 

So, what is ferment essence and how does it play a role in getting a youthful skin? L’oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Pre-Essence is designed and created in order to stimulate skin metabolism. You may have heard of metabolism of our body but our skin also has metabolism. The skin is the largest organ in our body and its metabolism plays a significant role as it is also affected as we age. So what is the function of the skin’s metabolism? It allows for our skin to repair its damage fast, self exfoliate and helps in the production of healthy amounts of collagen to hold up its shape. Healthy skin metabolism helps our skin to be youthful by making them bouncy, smooth and radiant. As we get older, our skin metabolism gets weaker. This is where L’oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Pre-Essence comes in. It will combat the sign of aging such as fine lines, rougher skin texture and loss of firmness

Ferment essence has immense renewing power, and it is extracted at 98% purity of Bifida Ferment Lysate to stimulate skin metabolism and accelerate cell renewal. It activates youthful skin with the renewing power of fermented seeds. L’oreal uses Pro-gen technology which increases the expression of recovery genes and helps to boost skin recovery ability against fatigue and aging signs.

How does L’oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Pre-Essence help your skin?

  •       It will strengthen your skin to increase its resistance from aggression for a bouncier skin.
  •       It will smoothen your skin by removing dead skin cells from the surface for a more refined skin.

Who should use this?

In order to best answer this question, this particular fact needs to be known. It does not mean that when you are in your 20s your skin does not age. Infact, around the age of 25, our skin shows certain signs of aging. These signs include fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume. So, who should use this product? Simply anyone who wants to prevent their skin from getting older and for those who want to slow down their skin’s aging. Anyone from any age group can use this product.
