Product of the Week: Cucumber Hydration Toner
Dehydrated skin can look dull and wrinkled and can even lead to acne lesions. Most skin types are susceptible to dehydration, including those on the oily side. The aging process, low daily water intake, dry climate conditions, medications, and harsh cleansing ingredients can result in lower hydration levels.
That is why Skin Script's Cucumber Hydration Toner is one of my very favorite products.
This toner rehydrates the skin while improving absorption of other ingredients. Cucumber Hydration Toner reduces discomfort and irritations, balances surface lipids, and assists in boosting hydration levels. It also provides a probiotic boost to the skin barrier, which helps bring balance to acne-prone skin.
Active Ingredients include:
Deuterium Oxide (Heavy Water) has a high molecular weight to deliver moisturize into the skin. It helps prevent trans-epidermal water loss and is resistant to free radical transportation. It is also hydrating.
Sodium PCA boosts moisture in the skin. This component of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF) has a high hydrating power and is nonirritating and non-allergenic. It is a humectant with moisture-binding ability. It is highly water absorbing and non-comedogenic (non pore-clogging).
Cucumber Fruit Extract is used to soothe and cool irritated skin.
Fructooligosaccharides (D-beta) is a naturally occurring carbohydrate derived from cane or beet sugar and promotes growth of healthy probiotic bacteria to strengthen skin immunity. It is a humectant and skin conditioning agent.
GlycodermTM (P) is a combination of water, honey, phospholipids, sphingolipids, and hyaluronic acid. It restores the lipid barrier of the epidermis and increases water absorption in the cells by adding natural moisturizing factors. It plumps and moisturizes the skin and improves the skin’s ability to hold moisture.
Borago Officinalis Seed Oil has a high concentration of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an Omega 6 essential fatty acid and anti-inflammatory.
