Unlock the Korean secret to dewy, radiant skin: DCS AQUADERM range

Press Release, Press Sample

I just have to start this post off with a picture of the creative DIY press kit!!

Well-received in its home country, Korean skincare brand DCS Cosmetic  (DCS stands for "Dermatology Cosmeceutical Solution") makes its mark in Singapore with its hydrating range - AQUADERM. The key ingredient prominent in every DCS product is the volcanic seawater all the way from Jeju island!

About DCS
DCS specially infuses each one of its products with Jeju's mineral-rich volcanic sea water, making it possible to tap into the volcano's rejuvenating power for healthier glowing skin. DCS has 5 ranges, from hydrating to anti-ageing, ensuring that every skin need is catered for. In line with their cruelty-free business philosophy, all products from DCS are not tested on animals (thank you, DCS!). They are also paraben-free.

3 out of the 5 ranges by DCS - AQUADERM, NUTRIDERM, POREDERM - all of which contains Jeju volcanic seawater

Jeju island, located in South Korea, is renowned for being one of the top 7 natural wonders in the world. Besides being a scenic location, this fertile island lies a hidden pocket of nutrient-rich volcanic seawater, which is highly valued for its rare mineral content such as selenium, zinc and iron - all proven beneficial for our skin. A little more about these minerals:
  • Selenium - An antioxidant mineral responsible for tissue elasticity and cell damage prevention
  • Zinc - Alleviates the damage caused by acne and reduces excessive sebum production (one of my favourite ingredients for my oily, blemished skin!)
  • Iron - Improves the skin's ability to repair and regenerate, thus achieving smooth, wrinkle-free skin

"Watery-light" dewy skin, or mul-kwang-pi-bu in Korean, has been a favourite trend amongst Korean celebrities for years now, and I'm sure this is of no surprise to us all! DCS' skin-loving formula transforms dull, rough skin to healthy, glowing skin which Korean women have been managing to achieve.

Do You Know?
One of Korea's top beauty YouTubers, Lamuqe (well-liked and trusted by Korean audiences for her cheery and informative videos on skincare and makeup), personally recommended DCS after testing the brand out on Korea's popular beauty variety show "After School Beauty Bible".

But, isn't AQUADERM a hydrating range? Does the seawater hydrate too?

The star ingredient in every DCS AQUADERM product responsible for improving skin hydration is the agave cactus extract.

Agave cactus has the remarkable ability to retain almost 100% of its moisture despite the most extreme desert conditions. Likewise, the extract has excellent water storage ability as a humectant, strengthening our skin's moisture barrier and restoring vitality to even the driest of skins!

All DCS AQUADERM products are also green tea-scented. Hola, green tea lovers!
