SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate
Have you ever been stress or felt like drain out of energy? No thanks to daily life, sun exposure and clock ticking.. We can’t run from it, we just have to face it. Just like your body, your skin are also effected by all these. Plus like your body, your skin has its own immune system. What if you can have a SUPER POWER like an immunity?
Introducing, SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate. I am so happy to be one of the first to get my hand on this product. It is just a skin (read: life) saver! Do you know that Shiseido developed this product for 20 years of dermatological research and over 400 trials. OMG… When one of the world’s leading cosmetics company teams up with Harvard Cutaneous Biology Research Centre, (CBRC) you know that they’re going to come up with something exceptional. Plus after 20 years of skin immunity research with CBRC, Shiseido launches a revolutionary new serum, Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. The science behind it is just amazing. These people really an enthusiast when it comes to skin.
Just as your body’s immune system defends you against dangerous foreign invaders, skin has its own immune system for defence against the increasing environmental threats, emotional stress and aging that wear down your skin’s strength. That explain a lot on why not only matured people have wrinkles and other skin problem. Nowadays, we have people from great range of age facing skin issue. Just like how you have to put effort and give the best to take care of your body and life, the same goes to your skin. You want pretty skin? Take care of it. Talking from experience, I used to have severe skin problem during my early 20s. I am thankful that, I manage to win the battle. (YES, it is a Battle)
Anyway, lets get back to this awesome product. Shiseido discovered that the function of Langerhans cells (which control skin immunity) can be undermined. Not just by external threats like dryness, air pollution and UV rays, but also by aging and emotional stress. It also proved that the calming enzymes of Langerhans cells neutralize skin-damaging factors decrease with aging and stress.
So what is a Langerhans cell? Sounded so canggih here right? Well, only in the skin can you find a rare cell called the Langerhans cell. While your skin accounts for roughly 15% of your body weight, only 2-5% of all the cells in an epidermal layer are of the Langerhans variety. These hard working cells form an intricate network that covers your entire epidermis, so they can detect foreign substances that intrude from the outside, and warn other cells to fire up their immune functions.
ULTIMUNE vitalizes the activities of Langerhans cells which decline due to aging, stress and external threats such as dryness, UV rays and air pollution, giving your skin the strength to fight against all kinds of damage on its own.
Let me me just put it this way, SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate help to make your skin strong. By having strong skin, your skin will be beautiful at any age. Immediately your skin feels smoother and more supple. Firmness and resilience improve. Finally, the skin you were always meant to have, strong and beautiful, now and for more years to come.
As for my personal experience, I love the light feeling of the product. , it absorbs quickly. I apply it on my face daily, once in the morning and once at night. I love how smooth my face feels every time I use this product. What I love most about it is that it made my skin healthier! Like I said earlier, I do have scars No thanks to my previous nasty breakouts and pimple scars, and I think Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate really helped me get rid of them. After a week of religiously using this product,(plus my current skincare IBUKI range, also from Shiseido) I noticed that my pimples heal faster and the ancient marks are fading! I didn’t get any more breakouts. Which is very important to me. Being a beauty blogger, I tried so many products before and I do experience breakout sometime. It also delivers to its claims of a supple and healthy skin.
I would recommend you to apply morning and night after cleansing and softening the face. When using other serums, apply Ultimune first to enhance the benefits. It works with your skincare to boost the benefits of your regimen, no matter your concerns.
