Dehydrated, rough-looking skin is often a sign that our skin barrier is compromised. The skin barrier is notably made of the lipid matrix in the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin), and acts as the skin’s shield of armour against the stressors of our environment. It protects against outside aggressors, but also works to prevent trans epidermal water loss. Factors such as stress, pollution, and exposure to UV rays and pollution, can all play a role in compromising the skin barrier. When this happens, it’s important to nourish, hydrate, and protect your skin from future damage.
The Optimals Nourishing Skin Booster is a highly concentrated booster formulation developed with skin nutrients from plants native to Sweden including Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids from 3 nourishing oils: Canola, Camelina, and Rosehip Seed – as well as Vitamin E. This booster works like a nourishing shot for your skin by helping to replenish the skin barrier when added to usual day or night creams, to ensure that dehydrated skin is left feeling replenished, strengthened, hydrated and soothed. Light golden oil, easy to blend.
The Optimals Boosters range features 3 boosters that you can use to tailor your skincare to different skin moods, needs, and types.
•In the palm of your cleansed hand, blend 1 to 2 drops of the desired booster with your Optimals face cream.
•Blend until smooth before applying, making sure to avoid direct contact with eyes.
•Important! Do not apply boosters directly, always add to face cream before applying to skin.
Rosehip seed oil, Canola Oil, and Camelina Oil are all high in the essential fatty acids, linoleic (and omega-6 fatty acid) and alpha linoleic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid). As such, they can help to nourish the skin barrier through the rebuilding of lipidic components that are essential to the normal functioning of the skin barrier. Together, these super oils provide the perfect combination when it comes to replenishing and nourishing the skin.
Vitamin E is the most abundant lipophilic (fat-loving) antioxidant found in human skin, with high levels generally found in the epidermis. When applied topically, Vitamin E can accumulate in the lipid matrix of the epidermis and help to hydrate the skin by improving the skin’s water-binding capacity. By helping to bring moisture back into the skin, Vitamin E helps reduce dryness and keeps skin soft and comfortable.
