NIOD (or Non Invasive Options in Dermal Science) is the next generation of skincare solutions – from serums featuring newly discovered active skincare technology to tried and tested favourites designed to revitalise and rejuvenate your skin, NIOD is leading the way in innovative beauty and grooming.
I’ve got my hand of a few products that are designed to super charge your pre-existing skincare routine.
Designed as a three-phase system, NIOD Flavanone Mud decongests skin with no disruption to it’s surface equilibrium nor its density. This ultra-light weight, mask glides across the skin with no dry, tightening sensation, instead it melts away excess oils and makeup, protects from environmental factors, and continues to support skins natural defences long after it’s been washed off. Unlike other masks, Flavanone Mud doesn’t interfere with the skin’s natural balance – years of scientific research, and the correct blend of purified ingredients, allows this product to work with skin to provide long last results, not just a temporary effect. I’ve used this once a week for the past month – a little goes a long way, so I’ve smoothed the tiniest amount over my entire face. Fast acting, in just 10 minutes it products a tingling sensation, which I’ve found to be a nice indication it’s working. The packaging describes this as a potentially “stinging sensation,” which, having sensitive skin, did make me cautious at first, but it’s not uncomfortable at all! Immediately after removing the mask, I was very impressed by now clean my pores looked – it was very similar to having an intensive facial. Over the next 2 days, the “glowing” effect got even better – even after using my regular face creams, my pores and complexion continued to look better, and lasted right up to my next weekly application.
Copper Amino Isolate Serum
Produced with a higher concentration of anti aging ingredients that most products, NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum targets signs of skin aging, including visible textural damage, uneven tone, visibly enlarged pores and a general lack of healthy radiance. The contents of both bottles are mixed at home, ensuring a fresh product, of which a few drops can be used as the first step of your skincare routine, setting the skin up before the application of heavier creams or serums. After just a month of using this, my skin looks more healthy, there’s a reduced redness, which is something I suffer with, and using this in conjunction with Flavanone Mud has continued to minimise the appearance of pores and help reduce blemishes.
Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex
Designed to work with Copper Amino Isolate Serum, NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex is the next step in creating the ideal skin environment for the absorption and retention of moisture, making it an essential product for getting the most from your regular creams. The science behind the product is more than I could explain in a few sentences, so I’d certainly recommend reading what goes into making this over on the NIOD site, but what I can tell you is that from using this for just one month, is that it provides weightless and immediate hydration to the skin, and when used as a base for my day and night creams, it adds a more plumped appearance to the face. Also, hydrated skin heals better, so this is a must-have for anyone who suffered from irritation when shaving – it supports cell functions, calming skin, and aids the recovery process.
