NEW Dermalogica Hydro Masque Exfoliant
When our skin looks a little dull, or we feel that our products are no longer working for us, dehydration and a lack of exfoliation can often be the culprits.
To get our skin to glow, we need to it be plump and hydrated (with water-based hydration, different to oil that nourishes dry skin) and we also need to remove the dead, dry cells that build up on our skins surface.
Enter Hydro Masque Exfoliant: a dual-action masque that works to exfoliate and hydrate in a single step. Yep, that’s right, it’s a 2 in 1 product for luminous, healthy looking skin!
Why we need Exfoliation
Our skin cells are constantly renewing themselves and this a process that begins in the lower layers of our skin. When we are younger, the process of the new cells making their way to the surface takes about 28 days and slows down as we get older. So the skin we see on our face as we age is not as “fresh” as in our earlier years. Desquamation is our skins own function of sloughing off or shedding those cells, and this process sometimes could use a little help with regular exfoliation.
And what about Hydration?
A hydrated skin is a healthy skin and two main factors contribute to the hydration levels in our skin.
The first is our skins own natural function to maintain moisture in the skin – known as our NMF (Natural Moisturising Factor) and the other is the ratio of lipids in our skin that help to reduce TEWL (Trans-Epidermal Water Loss). So to achieve and maintain healthy skin, we need to ensure that we support it with the right products, a healthy diet and plenty of water.
Remember we spoke just before about cells migrating to the surface of the skin? Well they start to dry out during their journey, which slows down as we start to slow down, and the lipid ratios in our skin are also affected with age, lifestyle factors, UV damage even the weather. Fortunately, there are products that can help.
At a Glance
The new HydroMasque Exfoliant is a creamy product with soft granules, or spheres and is designed to initially massage into the skin. You can customise this product by focusing the spheres on where you feel you need the exfoliation the most. The masque is then left on the skin for 3-5 minutes before a good rinse off. This product is gentle enough to be used 2-3 times a week.
Behind the Bottle
This new product is full of active ingredients and plant extracts:
- Ultra-fine Bamboo particles, rich in Silica, are released upon activation to deliver a targeted yet gentle exfoliation.
- Snow Mushroom which acts similarly to hyaluronic acid, infuses the skin with hydration, antioxidants and Vitamin D.
- Phytolipids from Jojoba Seed, Sunflower and Safflower help to strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
- Sugar Beets deliver Amino Acids that help to hydrate and strengthen skin`s moisture barrier.
- Cucumber Extract provides a soothing, refreshing finish.
Will my skin benefit from this new product?
Hydro Masque Exfoliant can be used by all skin conditions and is ideal for clients who want an added hydration boost while they exfoliate.
When do I use this product?
You should apply the Hydro Masque Exfoliant after cleansing and before applying other targeted treatments, like a serum or moisturiser.
What’s inside the spheres?
The spheres include Bamboo, a hydrating Polysaccharide, and Glycerin to exfoliate and hydrate. They are touch-activated, allowing you to “break” the spheres in targeted areas for a customised experience.
