Hydro Defense Complex (fig + watermelon + red algae extract + h20 patch) - Figs are used to treat the driest skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis. They are nourishing, antioxidant-rich fruits. Watermelon helps dehydrated skin, because of its high water content. It has been known to shrink body tissues, acting as a toner, retexturising the skin. Red algae extract is another thickening and water-binding agent as well as an antioxidant. That means it plumps skin and protects it from pollutants that cause wrinkles. Red algae also has the ability to absorb vitamins, minerals and beneficial substances. Overall, it gives your skin a youthful appearance. H20 patch is a powerful ‘anti-thirst’ moisturisation for immediate and lasting effect (5 days) that restores the quality of the skin barrier. Simply put, it makes skin thicker and fuller around the eye area.
Creatine - Simply put, creatine consists of 3 amino acids and it stimulates collagen production. Creatine gives your skin cells the power to regenerate. Creatine is produced in the liver, kidneys and pancreas and helps to supply energy to your cells all over the body. Found naturally in your skin, creatine acts as an energy reservoir and is important for the energy supply and function of your cells. Our body’s production of creatine declines as we age, but we can apply it manually thanks to wonderful eye creams like Payot’s Hydra 24+ Regard Glacon.
Vitamin C and E - Vitamin C is for brightening and preventing dull skin, Vitamin E is good for skin conditioning and it’s a great antioxidant, protecting your complexion against tiny pollutants in the air that damage your skin and cause wrinkles.
Urea - Urea gently exfoliates and moisturises at the same time. In fact, urea already makes up part of skin’s natural moisturising factor, but our natural supply decreases with age. Not only does this ingredient decrease trans-epidermal water loss, whereby the skin loses water and becomes wrinkled, it also has an extended effect on the inner workings of the skin - it can retain water in the skin as well as protecting water loss from external causes.
Sea salt - Sea salt is anti-inflammatory and can soothe skin as well as calm breakouts and irritation. In fact, salt helps to cleanse pores deeply by sloughing off dead skin cells.
Sodium hyaluronate - This is a form of hyaluronic acid which results in smoother, softer skin, decreased wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is incredibly water-retaining… in fact it can hold 1000 times its own weight in water.
