A common condition we see a lot is when someone is in their late 20’s and 30’s and still can acne breakouts, yet they are starting to notice the signs of aging. They will shy away from moisturizer thinking that it will only cause more blemishes but their skin so desperately needs the hydration. So what to do? Find a moisturizer that can balance breakouts, while still offering water-based hydration and antioxidants.
Who it’s for: Sheer Moisture is specifically formulated for oily/combination skins prone to breakouts, that want to focus on anti-aging. (Ideal for ages 25-38).
What’s in it: One of the primary elements in keeping skin healthy is making sure the structure of the epidermis (outer layer of skin) is intact. This structure is defined and created by skin cells that are held together by the intercellular matrix. Saturate skin with skin-revitalizing Vitamin A, age-defying Algae Peptides, sun-damage-correcting Vitamin C and three types of moisturizing, age-fighting Vitamin E. Sheer Moisture delivers a reservoir of moisture into the intercellular matrix to keep skin feeling comfortably moist, without feeling greasy or clogging the pores…
-Algae Peptides – A highly purified extract from the micro algae species that has been combined with a well balanced fraction of polysaccharides, to provide an in stand tightening as well as long-term firming, protecting skin cells from oxidative stress and stimulating the formation of collagen-I
-Ascorbyl Methylsilanol Pecinate – Stabilized, time-released Vitamin C to fight sun damage
-Retinyl Palmitate – Stabilized ester of Vitamin A to smooth fine lines and surface wrinkles
-Tocopheryl Linoleate – Delivers moisture into the intercellular matrix of skin
Why you should use it: Simply put, your skin cells are like fish and need water to live. Add in the amazing age-defying benefits of antioxidants and your skin is sure to be healthy and balanced.
