Product Spotlight: La Roche Posay’s Hydraphase Moisturizer
Sure, in my spare time I’m a writer, but we all have bills to pay, don’t we? So, I work as a Beauty Advisor, and every day at work I have clients approach me reciting their skin concerns looking to me for advice. One of the most common complaints I hear is simply lack of moisture and feeling dry. And so, in my first beauty product spotlight, I’m choosing to talk about one my all time favorite skin care products. Great for any age, and virtually any skin type – Hydraphase is simple, practical, and won’t break the bank.
Why we love it: This lightweight moisturizer is perfect for daily use and it comes in varying textures depending on your skin type. The Hydraphase line offers a light and rich texture moisturizer, as well as a version including SPF 15 or 30, a serum, hydration mask, and lastly, a lightweight eye gel. The non-greasy formula makes this moisturizer ideal for daily use, both morning and night, as it is quick to absorb and leaves your skin soft and plumped.
What makes it so good? Now for the important stuff – what powerful ingredient makes this product so darn good? Well, the Hydraphase line uses a popular ingredient that can be found in many skin care products and even cosmetics – Hyaluronic Acid (HA). However, HA’s doesn’t work in the same sense as a salicylic or glycolic acid, which are more active and meant to exfoliate away dead skin cells. HA already naturally occurs in the body and acts as a cushioning agent for hair, skin, eyes etc., which in turn, keeps the skin soft, plump and supple. This miracle ingredient also allows our skin to retain more than 1,000 times their weight in water. With age our body’s ability to produce HA reduces, and thus, our skin becomes, dry, less firm, and we begin to see fine lines.
So go ahead – indulge! Hyraphase is available at your local drugstores such as Shoppers Drug Mart or Rexall.
