We all have a moisturiser in our current routine but is it skin-type appropriate?
The release of our new Deep Hydration Moisture Cream had many of our customers asking this very question. So, to help make the process easy we’ve created this moisturiser match maker focusing on the most common skin concerns. We need to hydrate the right way, and now’s the time to look at that dusty old pot in your cabinet and wonder if it’s working hard for your skin needs. If not, maybe it’s time to dump it and find your perfect match below.
SKIN BARRIER ISSUES
YOUR MOISTURISER MATCH - ESSENTIALS DEEP HYDRATION MOISTURE CREAM
A weakened barrier is linked to excessive water loss which leads to dry skin, so this Deep Hydration Moisture Cream will make sure it’s in tip top-shape. A hero ingredient is the anti-inflammatory antioxidant Niacinamide. It’s also loaded with skin lipids such as a Ceramide Complex, Essential Fatty Acids and Cholesterol — they mimic the composition of the skin’s barrier to help retain and regulate hydration. Then there’s a trio of skin-plumping hydrators: Zinc Hyaluronate, HyaloRepair and Hyaluronic Acid. Some symptoms of a weakened barrier are dry or dehydrated skin, an increase in sensitivity, irritation, redness, breakouts and flakiness. This is also the ideal remedy if you think you’ve had a bad reaction to something or if you’ve played around with too many active-heavy treatments.
OILY, ACNE AND BLEMISH-PRONE SKIN TYPE
YOUR MOISTURISER MATCH - CLEAR SKIN INTENSIVE OIL CONTROL CREAM
Targeting this skin concern is all about balance because oily skin that’s prone to breakouts should never be allowed to dry out. As this can lead to blocked pores and the sebaceous glands over-compensating and producing more oil to counteract the dryness. If you have higher levels of oil production (a sign will be that your complexion is looking very shiny at the end of the day) then you’re in need of a lightweight formula that also smooths out those bumpy patches. This moisturiser will not only hydrate, but also helps regulate sebum production. Genius!
SENSITIVE SKIN TYPES
YOUR MOISTURISER MATCH - SOOTHING PROTECTION MOISTURE BALM
We get it, sensitivity issues can mean it’s scary to try something new. Your complexion might literally get angry at you. There’ll be no post-purchase regret here because this balm-style moisturiser is rich (in an amazing way) and ultra-soothing. It’s packed with natural anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Squalane, Chamomile and Calendula to reduce redness, calm and heal the skin as well as peptides designed to increase the skin’s tolerance to external stimulation. Suitable for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dryness. Also, particularly effective when applied after treatments such as microdermabrasion, acid peels and Retinol-rich products.
TIRED AND DULL SKIN
YOUR MOISTURISER MATCH - REBALANCING VITAMIN A DAY CREAM
The perfect pick for those of you who think their skin looks permanently jet-lagged (and we all know that there’s been no overseas travel in months!), dull or just generally lacking your usual glow. The hero ingredient, Vitamin A, is supported by Niacinamide and Vitamins C, E and Hyaluronic Acid to help rebalance, repair and protect the skin. The end result? A more radiant complexion that looks like it’s still on holiday.
PIGMENTATION AND UNEVEN SKIN TONE
YOUR MOISTURISER MATCH - INTENSIVE CORRECTION PIGMENTATION MOISTURE CREAM
We know that many LA CLINICA customers have these concerns and we think this moisturiser is one of the best ways to tackle it. Loaded up with Tyrosinase Inhibitors to reduce overproduction of pigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone. As well as Biomimetic Peptides to help iron out fine lines, wrinkles and imperfections (what a bonus) as well as everyone’s favourite brightening ingredient, Vitamin C. The benefits are clearer, brighter and more luminous skin.
FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
YOUR MOISTURISER MATCH - ANTI AGEING DAY CREAM
This beautiful day cream is light in texture yet rich in cosmeceutical actives to help achieve a more youthful-looking complexion. Not-so-fun fact: cellular renewal slows down after the age of 25 so let’s fight the ageing process early. This cream is loaded with Tripeptides, Vitamin A, and other ingredients famous for stimulating the skin’s production of collagen and elastin to firm, lift and plump. As well as Hyaluronic Acid which is one of the best hydrators to ensure moisture levels remain high throughout the day.
