Braving irrational weather, airplane pollution and breakouts galore? Take a peek into this week’s beauty bag for our hot new recommendations.
If you travel often and suffer from a poor skin barrier or dehydrated skin, these new products from Dermalogica are the answers to your prayers (so it’s no surprise why us travel bloggers have them at the top of our toiletry bag).
The first new introduction to our list is the oil-free and butter soft Calm Water Gel. This ultra-hydrator is a weightless water-gel moisturizer that hydrates dry, sensitive skin. The refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault (yes that includes that horrible man next to you on the airplane who insisted on turning the aircon up high). Dual hyaluronic acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture and its apple fruit extract and glycerin, hydrate and soften while defending skin against dryness. Cactus pear extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance.
How to use-
Squeeze a small amount into palm and rub hands together to activate. Pat gently onto face and neck. Use twice a day for continuous relief.
But what is a killer moisturizer without a fool-proof serum? The second beauty find on our list is Dermalogica’s Barrier Defense Booster. This high-tech serum consisting of concentrated oil, soothes, nourishes and moisturizes, while restoring balance to sensitive skin. Its triple defense complex nourishes the skin, relieves dryness and reinforces barrier integrity against future irritation (said man on future plane). For ideal results use prior to, or mix with, your moisturizer for ultra-calming benefits
How to use-
Dispense 6-10 drops into palm and rub hands together. Pat gently over face, neck and chest. Or, mix with your moisturizer, then apply. Use twice a day for continuous relief.
Use in conjunction with Calm Water Gel to restore moisture and prevent dehydration.
