A dehydrated skin type is lacking in moisture, its characterised by a rough texture, inflammation, and fine lines.
It is my belief that hydrated skin is healthy skin, and Quench fills that gap
Healthy skin contains between 15 to 20 percent water, anything lower and it is considered dehydrated. Dryness, flakiness, roughness and inflammation may be present, it is less effective as a protective barrier and reacts more to active ingredients or outside elements. Water loss in the top layer of skin leads to lines and wrinkles looking more pronounced. Topically rehydrating brings your skin back into balance, it is healthier and less reactive.
The structures within the epidermis that are responsible for moisture retention and balance include: The natural moisturising factor (NMF), transepidermal water loss (TEWL), sebaceous secretions and the acid mantle, all of these structures must maintain sufficient water balance for proper function if any become depleted, surface dehydration occurs.
With so many clients presenting with skin conditions associated with dehydration, creating a professional-strength concentrate that imparts a youthful, dewy glow was important. Quench has been Intelligently formulated with skin-identical ingredients found in our skin, that deplete with age or from trauma – Urea, Lactic acid, and proteins Pyrrolidone Carboxylic acid (PCA), Hyaluronic acid and Lipids, are all important components that make up the NMF and maintain water reservoirs in the skin. The addition of nutrient-dense ‘living water’ found within the Lotus plant and toning Marine collagen, delivers a truly wonderful veil of hydration to the skin.
I’m really proud to add this addition to my range, it’s the antidote to that elusive, ever-covetable vibrant glow, which is often hard to achieve with a dry, dehydrated, mature skin. Quench fills that gap, clarifying and boosting skin that exudes unrivaled radiance.
Tip: Use alone or layer over your H20, to use as a luxurious plumping, breathable overnight mask, so that you wake up to hydrated, bouncy, baby soft skin.
