Vi’s skin

Hey Vi, here are some insights based on the answers you gave us when you took our skin survey. The answers you provided really helped us to perfect the product – Base Plus was made with you in mind.

Skin that looks dry

Dry skin is often confusing as there is a difference between (and a different approach for addressing) skin that lacks oils, and skin that lacks hydration. Dry skin types are ones lacking enough of the oils naturally produced by the skin, and so can typically look dry – this is commonly addressed by using moisturisers with high oil content. The higher up the ingredient is in the ingredient list of a product, the greater the amount used in a product.

Uneven skin tone (patchy or hyperpigmented)

There are different types of hyper pigmentation, such as age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The condition can be caused by anything from acne scars and sun damage to hormone fluctuations.

People sometimes opt for over the counter creams to treat this, containing lightening ingredients such as vitamin C, niacinamide or liquorice extract. Stronger agents should always be prescribed bed by a medical professional. Sun exposure triggers melanin production, so people seeking to alleviate hyper pigmentation are often advised to wear sun screens or blocks to guard against the condition worsening.


We hope this information was useful and look forward to seeing what you create with us.
