Moisturising your skin is key in keeping pesky signs of ageing at bay. Make sure to moisturise your face both day and night to leave your skin feeling and looking at it’s best. For a day time moisturiser, you might want to look for something that will work to protect your skin from the free radicals and UV that you might encounter during the day.
The Squalane Anti-Oxidising Day Light Moisturiser defends against—and diminishes—the appearance of premature ageing with the most effective antioxidant power.
Squalane Anti-Oxidising Day Light Moisturiser is designed with signature ingredients including Squalane, Propanediol and Alanine.
Squalane is found naturally in the body as well as being found in olives and rice bran. However as we age our levels of Squalane depreciate, which is why it’s important to incorporate it into our routines. It aims to lightly coat the surface of the skin to soften and smooth it without irritation whilst mattifying complexion. Steve Shiel says, “When combined in skincare products, it [Squalane] is effective at providing natural-feeling moisturisation. It also has emollient characteristics as well, lightly coating the surface of the skin to soften and smooth it without irritation and importantly, without leaving a greasy residue. It can also help ensure that products have a smooth, spreadable texture and can help other ingredients absorb more effectively into the skin.”
Whilst Alanine added to the formula, contributes to balance moisture levels on the skin. It’s a non-essential amino acid that can be manufactured in the body. As an amino acid it may combine with epidermal cells to fill up creases and provide a smoother appearance.
Besides, Propanediol works to promote better absorption providing a soft and smooth texture to the skin. Its hydrating properties can leave your skin with a smooth and dewy finish.
