You May Need More Than A Moisturizer

November 12, 2014

A cold, windy environment and dry air contribute to transepidermal water loss (TEWL), resulting in dull, dry, dehydrated and aged-looking skin. 

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.

If you're looking for a comprehensive regimen to help improve the overall look of your skin, visit our online Skin Analysis App or book a consultation with one of our experienced aestheticians. 

DRY SKIN

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). 

Dry Skin Moisture Picks: 

  

OILY/COMBINATION SKIN

Oily skin does not need moisture, but they do need hydration; which is why "moisturizers" for oily skin are formulated primarily with humectants and antimicrobial ingredients to help keep the pores supple and reduce breakouts. 

 

ALL SKIN

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.
