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).

All skin benefits from a daily dose of Opti-Renew Complex. Vitamins A, Ester C and E nourish the skin with antioxidants to help boost regeneration and collagen synthesis, while helping to keep the skin hydrated and diminishing sun damage.
Dry skin, dandruff, and flaking are common issues with a beard. Thick, coarse hair can be difficult to clean and moisturize, but with the right combination of skin care products all of these woes can be prevented.
