INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: MICROBIOME RESCUE DAILY MOISTURIZER
Just like your gut, your skin is home to trillions of bacteria and fungi known as your skin microbiome. Maintaining a balanced microbiome with a diverse array of good bacteria is key to healthy, glowing skin. A healthy microbiome strengthens the lipid barrier and keeps acne-causing bacteria in check so your skin looks clear and hydrated. But what happens when the bad bacteria override the good? Cue acne, redness, and irritation. If your skin is feeling out of sorts, restore balance with a product that feeds your skin’s good bacteria like our MICROBIOME RESCUE DAILY MOISTURIZER. Our velvety daily hydrator nourishes the skin microbiome, restores barrier function, and rescues skin from redness so skin becomes stronger, silkier, and healthier with every use. Let’s take a look at the powerful actives that make it all happen.
BALANCE YOUR MICROBIOME WITH OUR PREBIOTIC COMPLEX: To support a healthy skin microbiome, our moisturizer contains prebiotics--ingredients that feed your skin’s good bacteria. Polysaccharides derived from chicory root boost your skin’s natural probiotics so they can fight off bad bacteria that trigger breakouts and skin sensitivity. They also help maintain skin’s essential moisture levels, preventing dryness and sensitivity that can contribute to microbiome imbalances.
PROTECT AGAINST AGING WITH ASTAXANTHIN: One of the world’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin shields against environmental free radicals from blue light and harmful UV rays that trigger early skin aging so skin looks younger, longer.
RENEW BARRIER FUNCTION WITH A CERAMIDE COMPLEX: Ceramides are fats stored in the skin’s upper layers, and they play a vital role in maintaining a healthy lipid barrier. A healthy lipid barrier locks moisture inside the skin and keeps pollutants out, preventing damage caused by dehydration and irritation. Our skin-identical lipid concentrate supports healthy skin barrier function to minimize redness and restore skin softness.
RESTORE MOISTURE WITH ENCAPSULATED GLYCERIN: Glycerin is a humectant, which means it can draw water out of the air and into the skin. Our encapsulated glycerin works together with a hyaluronic acid complex to lock moisture into the skin 15x more effectively than standard glycerin, helping skin stay plump, firm, and hydrated all day long.
Used daily, our MICROBIOME RESCUE DAILY MOISTURIZER restores skin health and balance, minimizes signs of aging, and protects skin from outside aggressors. Use it after microneedling, dermaplaning, or applying peels to protect against redness and give skin a plump and juicy bounce.
