It sounds scary, but in the urban jungle it’s time to upgrade in skin matters. Air pollution from exhaust gases, emissions and particulate matter not only stress the respiratory tract, but also our largest organ - our skin. Protecting, repairing and strengthening these comprehensively is the mission of Susanne Kaufmann. She has over 15 years of beauty experience and her healing expertise combined in the Pollution Skin Defense System, a 15-day face treatment. 15 ampoules with the highly effective, complementary active ingredients Vitamin C, Ectoin and Q10 renew the skin system, stimulate its repair mechanisms and help protect the skin from further negative environmental influences. In New York at NYDG and the Susanne Kaufmann Spa in Bezau there is also the matching Bespoke Rejuvenating Facial.
Vitamin C. We know vitamin C as a defensive vitamin during the cold season. A similar task is done in a modified form in the Pollution Skin Defense System. The active substance complex in the ampoule removes the skin from free radicals by eliminating the inflammatory processes and detoxifying them at the same time. The five vitamin C drug vials are massaged into the skin during the first five days after cleansing. After a short exposure, the night care is applied.
Ectoin. In the field of anti-aging Ectoin plays an important role. It stabilizes the cell membrane and increases protection there exactly where the skin has already been weakened by environmental influences. In addition, it improves the skin density and allows the skin to store more moisture. In the Ectoin ampoule, we combine Ection with the active ingredient QT40, which stimulates the blending of endogenous collagen and hyaluronic acid, and magnolia extract, which neutralizes free radicals and relieves inflammatory processes in the skin. The five Ectoin ampoules are massaged in the evening from day 6 to 10 in the evening after cleaning and supplemented with the individual night care.
Enzyme Q10. The last five days of treatment are dedicated to cell metabolism and collagen production. The enzyme Q10 is our powerful agent and stimulates both processes. In addition, it helps the skin to break down free radicals with antioxidants. In the Enzyme Q10 vial, we have enriched Q10 with a low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid and magnolia extract. Both help the skin to retain sufficient moisture and reduce inflammation. Like the previous ampoules, the enzyme Q10 ampoule is applied during the last five days of the treatment after the evening cleansing under the night care.
The Bespoke Rejuvenating Facial was specifically designed for the Pollution Skin Defense System and is only available at the Susanne Kaufmann Spa in Bezau and at our NYDG wellness room in New York. During the 90-minute treatment, three ampoules with different massage techniques are incorporated. The remaining 12 are then home for the application.
