Lamelle is a proudly South African skincare range that celebrates and incorporates natural ingredients. The brand is constantly working on creating new formulas, all in the name of giving you improved skin. Here are some of Lamelle’s latest releases.
Back to the Beach with Bacne
Pimples. Spots. Breakouts. During the holiday, it’s no joke. Summer is here and your fear of climbing into your costume and showing some skin kicks in. Did you know that acne affects 85% of people at some point in their lives? If you suffer from Bacne, you’ll be well aware of the constant worry of who may be looking at your back while you walk towards the water. Not anymore, thanks to Lamelle’s Clarity Active Body Spray.
Clarity Active Body Spray is Lamelle’s latest innovation for effectively treating problematic skin on the body. It packs the same skin-clearing and acne-preventing power you’ve come to know and trust from the Lamelle Clarity and Acnevelle ranges, plus a few exciting new innovations that enables it to clear pimples on the body (back, chest and shoulders) by 86% in just 8-12 weeks.
By making use of all-new ingredients, Niacinamide and a specially modified version of ascorbic acid, Clarity Active Body Spray works as a strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. It delivers the same effect as an antibiotic would have, but with zero risk of bacterial resistance.
In addition, it also fights oxidation, reducing ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) in lipids by up to 40%. ROS and free radicals are very bad for your skin and cause cellular damage and degeneration in the long term.
The best part? It’s specifically made for your body.
The Lamelle Nourish Line
This line is a revolutionary anti-ageing range. In Nourish, Lamelle have combined revolutionary DNA damage-correcting enzymes with powerful antioxidants to keep the skin youthful.
The word ‘nourish’ means to give your body what it needs to maintain balance. Thus, Nourish was developed with the goal of restoring and maintaining balance where sun exposure and other dangerous elements have disrupted the skin’s normal function. In younger skin, Nourish ensures the maintenance of healthy equilibrium in the skin while inhibiting the ageing process – which ultimately starts at birth. In older skin, Nourish restores balance and actively halts the ageing process, so that correction can take place with other supporting products.
This range employs powerful antioxidants to suppress all free radical activity in the skin, protecting the skin cells, their cell structures and also boosting the skin’s immune function. These dynamic antioxidants are combined with powerful DNA-correcting enzymes that have the unique ability to actively seek out and repair recent DNA damage that has been produced by free radical activity. These key ingredients combine in a pioneering series of products that are ideal for preventing the processes of ageing early on in younger, healthier skins.
The range is formulated to allow you to select those products that are best suited to you and your skin’s needs, so you might not use the full range at any one time.
Nourish Daily Cleanse:
This copper-coloured, soap-free foaming gel cleanser is one of Lamelle’s most popular cleansers. It thoroughly yet gently cleanses the skin and is ideal for men and women of all skin types. It contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant extracts that are designed to become trapped inside the skin during the cleansing process, from where they start to work on restoring balance in the skin and counteracting the ageing process from within.
Added moisturising ingredients (humectants) prevent the skin becoming dry while using the cleanser, while the added compound allantoin helps to keep your skin feeling fresh and revitalised after every wash.
Nourish Multi-Active Sun 30:
Nourish Multi-Active Sun 30 is a non-whitening, non-glossy and non-stick sun protection product that has an SPF of 30 and the added advantage of a very powerful antioxidant called Pycnogenol. This makes it the ideal sunscreen for anyone who is in the sun more often – for example, those who work outdoors, take part in outdoor sport regularly, or generally go outside to meet friends or have lunch often.
Nourish Rescue Repair:
Nourish Rescue Repair is a skin cooling and calming product that’s used to soothe redness, heat and irritation after sun exposure, with the added function of turning off any free radical activation that was caused by the UV light. The Pycnogenol in this product is at a maximum concentration to also significantly reduce any skin injury that may have been caused by sun exposure as well as laser and IPL treatments. The anti-inflammatory and soothing effects are further enhanced with aloe vera, rice-bran extract and MAP, a form of vitamin C that provides both antioxidant and anti-pigmentation support for sun-exposed skin.
Anti-burn, calming and soothing, this product significantly decreases healing time after sun exposure.
Nourish Revitalise Cream:
Nourish Revitalise Cream is a medium-weight moisturiser that is designed for dry and combination skins in drier climates during winter. The product contains added emollients that make it slightly richer than Nourish Revitalise Lite. It also combines a very powerful antioxidant with an innovative enzyme that will actively locate and correct any recent DNA damage that has been caused by free radical action during UV exposure.
Nourish Revitalise Eye:
Nourish Revitalise Eye is the ultimate in anti-ageing and anti-puffiness. Designed for the treatment of the eye area, the non-comedogenic base contains ingredients that significantly enhance lymphatic drainage in the eye area. The product also firms and contours the skin for reduced puffiness under the eyes. In addition to this, the eye cream contains added anti-inflammatory panthenol to reduce irritation of the skin around the eye.
Nourish Revitalise Lite:
Nourish Revitalise Lite is a lightweight moisturiser that is designed for treating combination to oily skin types. The cream is rapidly absorbed by the skin due to specially added oils that have a high affinity for those found naturally in the skin. The addition of innovative enzymes that counteract the damage caused by free radical activity in the cell DNA makes this the ultimate age-prevention product. Added soothing plant extracts also calm irritation.
