Dermalogica Skin Hydration Booster
We all know that a stressful meeting or a tough game of tennis leaves us feeling cotton-mouthed and parched. But the distress-signals sent out by our thirsty skin may not register. Skin Hydrating Booster from Dermalogica delivers an intensive moisture treatment to the skin's lipid barrier and tissues, smoothing, revitalising and improving suppleness.
Dehydration is perhaps the most common condition observed by the skin care professionals. One quick test for dehydration: when pinching the skin, observe any temporary "crease" in your skin, i.e. where your cheek may have pressed against a fold in the pillowcase while you slept. If the crease doesn't plump up and disappear within a few minutes, your skin is dehydrated!
Natural dehydration factors include exposure to the elements and the simple facts of aging; levels of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the dermis decline with each passing decade. Air Conditioning and heating rob air or humidity, so the workplace is generally a major source of dehydration; add to this our modern-day staples is stress, coffee, sodas and alcohol. The visible results of dehydration: skin which looks and feels tight, and the rapid proliferation of fine lines.
Dermalogica's new Skin Hydrating Booster is a super-saturated, clear fluid which replenishes Hyaluronic Acid, a predominant glycosaminoglycan found in the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is capable of holding at least 1000 time its weight in water, making it the most powerful humectant and moisturiser available. This product also contains Panthenol and Algae Extract to regulate trans-epidermal water loss and restore moisture balance.
"This product hydrates the skin, and also allows the skin to preserve its moisture content", comments Dermalogica founder Jane Wurwand. "The result is like pouring water into a container, then sealing the container to prevent evaporation. Skin looks and feels supple and resilient again."
Skin Hydrating Booster can be used alone on the skin when in need of a hydration-hit, or even added to your current moisturiser to boost the products hydration factor. Skin Hydrating Booster
