Calm the storm and restore peace for skin that has a glass-like surface.

Reduce the appearance of red and inflamed skin with this calming and healing treatment.

As a Lake gently exfoliates and unclogs pores with Azelaic and Salicylic acids, while Niacinamide improves skin elasticity, tone, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Caffeine also helps to depuff and energise the skin, with Glutathione offering powerful antioxidant protection against environmental stressors.

The skin is also incredibly nourished by Crambe Abyssinica, Ribes Nigrum, and Helianthus Annuus seed oils, and soothed with Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract and Allantoin, promoting overall skin health.

Peptides, including Acetyl Octapeptide-3 and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, contribute to the product’s anti-aging benefits, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the combination of Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer ensures lasting hydration and plumpness.


Youthful radiance A powerful blend of antioxidants, including Glutathione, helps to fight free radicals and reduce the signs of ageing, leaving your skin looking youthful and radiant.

Clear, smooth skin Azelaic Acid and Salicylic Acid work in synergy to combat acne and rosacea, exfoliate the skin, and unclog pores, revealing a smoother, clearer complexion.

Deep hydration Hyaluronic Acid (HA) deeply hydrates the skin, boosting its moisture levels and improving its barrier function, resulting in soft, supple skin with a plump and healthy appearance.

Skin tone and texture improvement Niacinamide minimises pore appearance, reduces inflammation, and promotes smoother and more even skin tone, resulting in a smoother, more refined complexion.

Muscle-relaxing effect Hexapeptide 8, a “botox-like” peptide, helps to suppress muscle contractions that lead to the formation of wrinkles, promoting a firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Comprehensive skin care As a Lake is formulated to provide a holistic approach to skincare, addressing multiple skin concerns including anti-aging, acne, inflammation, hydration.

Pro tip

Skincare is a marathon, not a sprint! Whilst you’ll see improvement within a few weeks, you’re going to need to commit to the process! It’s going to be worth it. Apply to moist skin, but try alternative nights to start with to control early adjustment and tolerance.

*Azelaic acid is well know for 'pilling' (when the product gathers into balls as you apply it, often mistaken for skin peeling). Apply it at night and be patient. It's not always great under makeup.

How to use

Apply 1-2 pumps, morning and night daily. Reduce daily usage if irritation occurs. Use as a stand alone moisturiser or over a non-azelaic acid serum. Avoid using with other products that contain azelaic acid.
