Moisturizers are formulated with two types of hydrating ingredients: humectants, which attract water molecules to the skin, and emollients, which seal that moisture in by forming a protective barrier. Emollients are the key to shielding your skin from TEWL and may include shea butter, squalene and coconut, jojoba, olive, almond and soybean oils.
Severe dry skin needs more than a moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid is a quenching drink of water to the skin and the top hydrating ingredient currently available. Boost your hydration with Rest-N-Restore gel, apply your moisturizer and finish with a light application of Post-Peel Balm (you can get this from your aesthetician).
