Filorga Age Purify Range Age Purify from Filorga is the first anti-aging range for skin prone to imperfections, for a smoother and purified skin after 7 days. Those who have skin with a tendency to blemishes should also have the option of correcting wrinkles. Anti-aging care should be an option for all women, without having to choose between smooth skin and clean skin.

A range of care, developed from a combination of dermatological knowledge with aesthetic medicine, that presents an exclusive central formula -double correction factors - combining two cutting-edge complexes: Hyaluro-Youth-CX and Dermo-Rescue-CX so that women with mixed to oily skin finally have a response capable of correcting both wrinkles and blemishes.
Skin imperfections can include pimples, excess shine, black spots, enlarged pores, and redness. Most often this is caused by pollution, stress, fatigue, diet, imbalance in the skin microbiome, and hormonal fluctuations – and not an exclusive concern of teenagers!

Cleans and removes impurities and particles from skin pollution and make-up remover. Apply morning and evening to moist skin, massaging gently, and rinse thoroughly.
AGE-PURIFY MASK, double correction mask [wrinkles + blemishes] With a creamy texture of ultra-rich green clay, it absorbs excess sebum and mattifies the skin instantly and permanently, but without drying out. Apply to clean skin, all over the face in a thick layer, avoiding the eye contour. Leave on for 10 minutes and remove with plenty of water.
AGE-PURIFY INTENSIVE, Double correction serum [wrinkles + blemishes] Anti-wrinkle and anti-imperfection serum that rebalances the skin in a lasting way, easy to spread, and quickly absorbed. Non-comedogenic. Apply all over the face in the morning and evening after cleansing and before Age Purify fluid.
AGE-PURIFY, Double correction fluid [wrinkles + blemishes] Mattifying fluid with double action on wrinkles and imperfections and that acts as a non-stick shield to protect the skin from pollution and heavy metals responsible for the appearance of imperfections. Non-comedogenic. Apply all over the face in the morning and at night, alone or after applying the Age Purify Intensive serum.
