Summary of Benefits:
• Helps protect the skin against the harmful effects of infrared (IR) and HEV blue light
• Actively defends and balances the skin’s microflora, restoring a natural glow and comfort
• Refines pores and uneven texture to a satiny smooth, visibly softer look and feel
• Rapidly plumps and smoothes out surface lines and wrinkles with instant and long-term hydrators
• Protects the skin’s firmness and prevents the loss of skin density upon sun exposure
• Instantly cools and refreshes the skin, while imparting intensive weightless moisture
• Soothes skin sensitized by environmental pollutants
This ultra-lightweight, deeply hydrating and refreshing gel creme addresses some of the most recently identified aging culprits, including Screen and Digital aging (blue light), Infra-aging (IR), EcoVigilance and Microbiome Health and Air Pollution, while protecting the skin’s natural moisture balance. Blue light penetrates deeper into the skin than UVA and UVB light, and also has a higher level of energy than IR (infrared) light, which means there is a greater potential for skin damage to occur.
This luxurious gel creme is designed to release a flood of weightless moisture into the skin upon contact for immediate and long-lasting hydration without leaving skin sticky or greasy. It infuses parched skin layers with skin-plumping hydrators that lock in their weight in water and triple the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin without injections for a healthy, smooth, supple appearance.
