FAQ

WHY DO YOU NEED A FACE MOISTURISER?
It sounds like the most basic of beauty questions, but since age, skin type and even the time of year can all significantly affect your complexion, what moisturiser you use makes all the difference to your complexion. Read on to find out how to pick the right one for your needs.

Why do you need a face moisturiser?
What is the difference between a face and body moisturiser? The skin on your face has different concerns from that on your body. Our face tends to be more exposed than elsewhere on our body, making it more prone to damaging external factors, such as UV damage and pollution. As a result, our faces tend to be first in the queue when it comes to visible signs of ageing and need extra layers of protection in the form of UV protection, anti-oxidants and hydrating ingredients. Skin on our bodies is more resilient, so body moisturizers are often thicker in texture and feature perfumes or other fragrances.

Why do you need a face moisturiser?
Facial skin is among the thinnest on the body, with the most delicate part of the face - the under-eye area - averaging just 0.5mm in thickness. What’s more, the face lacks the fat deposits found on other parts of the body, such as the thighs and upper arms, making it much more prone to dryness. This means that when compared to other areas of the body, the face is among the first to show visible signs of ageing. Dehydrated skin has a reduced barrier function so keeping it hydrated is one of the best things you can do when looking to ensure its long-term future

When and how to moisturise your face
When it comes to how you should be moisturising your face, several factors come into play.
Generally speaking, our epidermis tends to be at its thickest when we’re in our teens and twenties.. Increased oil production at this age often results in imperfections and, occasionally, acne. To fight this, people with oily skin types should opt for moisturisers with lightweight textures, that won’t block pores. Equally, as skin thins with age, its ability to retain moisture falls dramatically. Hydrated skin is less likely to show the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so choosing a day cream enriched with hydrating ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, is key to reducing visible signs of ageing, while guarding against further exposome-related (environmental) damage.

Skin type
When choosing a moisturiser, it’s important to understand your skin type as well as your skin age. Firstly it’s important to establish whether your skin is dry, oily or a combination of both of these. Dry skin will need richer  moisturiser but Just because skin is oily or combination, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t still keep skin hydrated (stripping your skin of essential oils with astringent cleansers, for example, can encourage it to produce more sebum). Those with sensitive and itchy skin need to also opt for hypoallergenic products designed not to irritate delicate skin.

Season / time of year
Summertime heat can often cause skin to appear more shiny and greasy. This is because heat has a naturally stimulating effect, causing more secretions from oil glands. This is the skin’s defence mechanism as more sebum creates an extra physical barrier over skin to protect it from the sun. However this can often result in increased blemishes and imperfections.

Even if your complexion is feeling greasier than usual, this doesn’t mean that you should forget about keeping skin moisturised! Look for lighter formulations that are also cooling to the skin such as Vichy’s Minéral 89, which thanks to its high concentration of Vichy Thermal Mineralizing Water, is enriched with 15 key minerals, while its smooth, cool texture is great for hot summer days. Winter, on the other hand, can leave skin feeling parched as a result of indoor heating and extreme cold.

While exfoliating is a great way of eliminating dry or flaky skin on the body, some exfoliants can be too harsh for delicate facial skin - meaning prevention is better than cure when looking to guard against dehydration. Layer a hydrating serum under your moisturiser to ensure you’re getting the extra moisture boost you need.

Side Effects

Before using any skin products, it is important to read the information and follow the instructions on the package.

Do not use it, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, our Rightdose pharmacists or nurse.

WHAT DOES HYALURONIC ACID DO AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?
Hyaluronic acid: The ultimate guide to the latest evolution in skincare Skin feeling dehydrated and dull? The beauty industry’s latest wonder ingredient could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

If you’re unfamiliar with Hyaluronic Acid, you may think from its scientific name that it’s been plucked straight from the periodic table. In fact, this skincare ingredient is incredibly gentle - a super-strength moisturiser that holds 1,000 times its weight in water.

But why should you use it and what benefit does it have on the skin? “Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar that’s found in the skin,” says expert dermatologist Anjali Mahto. “The molecule itself is loved by both dermatologists and cosmetic scientists because it has a number of benefits. The main one is that it’s a humectant, so it binds a thousand times its capacity in water and is an incredibly hydrating molecule”.

As Hyaluronic Acid is produced naturally by the body, it’s accepted more readily than an artificial compound. In fact, the human body already carries around 15 grams of Hyaluronic Acid which it recycles each day.

So why do we need to add it topically to the skin if the body already creates it? Put simply, we create less and less as we age which leads to the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin texture. Hyaluronic Acid helps to address this by introducing much-needed moisture to not only the surface of the skin, but the deeper layers beneath it.

But not all types of Hyaluronic Acid are created equal and each can reap different rewards depending on their molecular weight. “They can vary in both their source and their size,” explains Anjali. “You can have low or high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. The high molecular weight is very good for smoothing and plumping out the skin as it’s a much larger molecule, whereas the smaller molecule can be broken up or fragmented and is very, very good for targeted or specialised skincare. The good news is that both kinds of Hyaluronic Acid are gentle and safe to use on all skin types”.

Hyaluronic acid serum

If you’re looking to introduce Hyaluronic Acid to your everyday routine, try a serum such as Vichy’s Minéral 89. Its molecular structure allows it to soak into the deeper layers of the epidermis, providing up to 24-hour hydration and protection from urban aggressors such as pollution. It’s also suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, and has a minimal 11 ingredient formula. Simply apply it as the first step in your skincare routine.

For an intensive Hyaluronic Acid serum that reduces the signs of wrinkles and fine lines on the skin try Liftactiv Supreme HA Epidermal Filler Serum. Formulated with dermatological active ingredients such as Vitamin CG and B5, the serum plumps skin with moisture and helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with a filling effect.

Hyaluronic acid face mask

Additionally, a mask such as Vichy’s Hyalu Mask combines high and low-weight Hyaluronic Acid with agave yeast extract in a formula that delivers intense hydration to the skin. It also helps  plump the appearance of the skin and restores radiance.

Directions

Apply daily in the morning after gently cleansing. 

When to use:

  • Cleanse and tone your face and neck. Pat dry gently. 
  • Gently smooth small quantities of Aqualia Thermal Light over the entire face, neck. 

For even better results, apply a pump of Aqualia Thermal Rehydrating Serum or Minéral 89 serum to a dry face and neck, before your daily moisturizer or Aqualia Thermal Light Rehydrating Cream.
