Dehydrated, rough-looking skin is often a sign that our skin barrier is compromised. The skin barrier is notably made of the lipid matrix in the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin), and acts as the skin’s shield of armour against the stressors of our environment. It protects against outside aggressors, but also works to prevent trans epidermal water loss. Factors such as stress, pollution, and exposure to UV rays and pollution, can all play a role in compromising the skin barrier. When this happens, it’s important to nourish, hydrate, and protect your skin from future damage.
The Optimals Nourishing Skin Booster is a highly concentrated booster formulation developed with skin nutrients from plants native to Sweden including Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids from 3 nourishing oils: Canola, Camelina, and Rosehip Seed – as well as Vitamin E. This booster works like a nourishing shot for your skin by helping to replenish the skin barrier when added to usual day or night creams, to ensure that dehydrated skin is left feeling replenished, strengthened, hydrated and soothed. Light golden oil, easy to blend.
