Winter is a joyful season; nothing compares to a blanket, hot cocoa and a movie while outside the snow is painting the landscape white. On the downside, the cold and the frigid winds that hit our faces every day on our way to work can be so harsh on our skin. To make matters worse, constant exposure to indoor heating can leave our skin feeling dry, chapped, and sometimes very sensitive. It is important to make changes in our skincare regimen to combat these external actors and protect our skin. But, let me show you a winter secret for 24-hour hydration: Hydra-V Moisturizer by Lorde+Belle.
Hydra-V Moisturizer: Protect and Repair!
Hydra-V is a rich moisturizer formulated to hydrate, moisturize, repair and protect your skin from free radical damage. It offers 24-hour hydration even in cold winter and fortifies the skin barrier due to a patented Ceramide complex. It’s formulated to suit every skin type and help the skin, especially during cold and harsh winter months.
What makes the formulation so special?
Hydra-V Moisturizer has four key ingredients that contribute to healthy skin: Ceramide Complex, HA3, Beta Glucan and Skin Barrier / Repair Complex.
- Ceramide Complex is a unique system that includes Ceramide NP and Omega 3 ceramide analog. Ceramides are naturally occurring fats that make up to approximately 50% of healthy skin composition. They are known for their water-retaining abilities, aka hydration, and help strengthen skin’s barrier and improve elasticity. In winter, due to low temperatures, wind, and AC, the skin barrier is damaged and there is a decrease of the level of ceramides. Hydra-V Moisturizer is formulated with a Ceramide Complex that contains Ceramide NP, one of the most prevalent types of ceramides found naturally in skin, and Omega 3 obtained by Safflower Oil, because Ceramides work best when combined with other replenishing ingredients like fatty acids. This Ceramide Complex present in Hydra-V Moisturizer will bring essential ceramides to the skin as well as help the skin produce more ceramides. This will result in a stronger skin barrier that will keep its moisture even during cold winter days.
- HA3 is a revolutionary technology that delivers simultaneous multi-level hydration via molecules of low, medium, and high molecular weights. HA3 is a humectant capable of holding up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, making it suitable for all skin types. In addition to helping the skin retain water and feel hydrated, it also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Beta Glucan is a polysaccharide that can derive from different natural sources. It is used in Hydra-V Moisturizer as a soothing agent and hydrator. Due to its ‘film-forming’ properties,it locks hydration in and prevents moisture loss. Studies indicate that beta-glucan can help reduce the look of wrinkle depth and address other signs of aging.
- Skin Barrier/Repair Complex found in Hydra-V Moisturizer is especially helpful for distressed skin due to external factors (like harsh weather conditions). It’s a complex that repairs the skin barrier for less irritated skin, which also prevents water loss, and reduces redness.
Hydra-V Moisturizer is consciously formulated with science-based ingredients to moisturize and protect your skin all year round. Especially in winter, it will be a great addition to your skin care regimen because it will leave your skin hydrated and moisturized all day long.
