Just because you don’t see the effects of UV damage on your skin in your 20s, that doesn’t mean they are not there – hidden spots caused by UV exposure can take years to appear.
The SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence will now replace their Cellumination Aura Essence, while the SK-II GenOptics Spot Essence replaces their Whitening Power Spots Specialist.
SK-II discovered via its first-in-the-world research that UV exposure damages the skin by causing hidden spots and cloudy appearance at the same time; in addition to SK-II’s 10-year skin tracking study ( Akita study ) that observed a visible loss in radiance and age spots over time.
These discoveries have inspired the launch of SK-II’s GenOptics Aura Essence containing an infusion of Prunus extract and Pitera™, in addition to active whitening ingredient, D-melano P3C™ to tackle spots and skin clouds before they surface.
SK-II’s latest research discovered that even little to no UV exposure can result in visible age spots and darker skin tone over time by producing excess melanin and hidden spots. This discovery has inspired the launch of SK-II’s GenOptics Spot Essence, SK-II’s latest spot reducing serum created with the new formula Spot Resist Complex.
SK-II’s GenOptics Spot Essence contains a new ingredient – Lumina Kelp Extract – that is absent from the Whitening Power Spots Specialist. When combined with SK-II’s active whitening ingredient of D-melano P3C™, Lumina Kelp Extract helps to inhibit melanin production and enhance the skin’s spot reduction power, limiting the appearance of current and future spots.
Available in 30ml and 50ml bottles with the new auto-fill dropper, one full pump from the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence dispenses the optimal amount.
It will take about eight weeks of continuous use of the GenOptics Aura Essence, and six weeks of continuous use of the GenOptics Spot Essence to see results. Meanwhile, I will be putting my laser treatments for pigmentation on hold and take on this challenge, so be sure to check back for my review on these whitening skincare products.
Magic Ring program with a “Cloud Meter” to show signs of UV damage, including visible spots and even hidden clouds. ‘ Cloud areas ’ measure accumulated UV induced damage on the skin while ‘ aura areas ’ measure the brightness of the skin. The detection of grayish and reddish clouds represent dark and dull skin tone, therefore the bigger the ‘cloud area,’ the less radiant skin is. Meanwhile, the bigger the ‘ aura area ’, the brighter the skin is.
