It’s well known that first impressions are important – something that the Synergie brand of cosmetic products understands completely in its quest to help you look your best. Our skin care line rejuvenates your complexion, improves overall skin health and gives you more confidence – whatever your own personal skin concerns may be. Looking for a dry skin treatment? Consider the many products offered by Synergie Skin and what they can do for you.
Begin with Biocleanse, a high-quality ‘milk’ cleanser specially designed for dry skin. This gentle, low-foaming facial cleanser is ideal for dry skin, at doesn’t strip the skin of its protective ‘acid mantle’ (the fatty acids and natural moisturizers that act like water-proofing for the skin). Apply essential serums: ideally Suprema-C in the morning, and Ultimate A and Vitamin B serums in the evening. If you’re on a budget, don’t miss out on the Vitamin B serum, as its niacinamide increases epidermal ceramides and decreases skin’s water loss, for enhanced hydration. Next, use a rich hydrating moisturizer such as Hydrolock. Follow this simple routine for a soft, glowing complexion. But don’t forget: it’s also important to drink plenty of fluids! (You can find specific product recommendations and guidelines here.)
Synergie Skin products address the problems that contribute to dry, flaky skin in other ways too:
Repair & Maintain Barrier Protection
The barrier or outer layer of your skin needs to be strong to prevent potential damage by environmental factors such as ultraviolet and infra-red light, dry weather conditions, and pollution.. The strength and integrity of this barrier not only keeps skin looking healthy and moisturized, it also plays a role in its clarity.
Damage or weakness causes your skin to lose its protection from pollutants and other environmental assailants. Building up this surface layer and increased hydration are key in correcting dry skin. And for additional protection, Synergie Skin’s Enviroshield is a spritzer that’s especially formulated as an environmental and pollution defense spray
Increase Collagen Production
Healthy collagen levels give your face a strong and youthful appearance. Synergie Skin includes essential vitamins to help the process.
As noted earlier, Vitamin B is a niacinamide serum that helps hydrate the skin – but it has a number of other roles in improving your skin’s appearance, including stimulating collagen synthesis.
Ultimate A is another of Synergie’s ‘essential vitamins’; like niacinamide, it also increases collagen production. In addition, it reverses UV sun damage and reduces fine lines. And Vitamin C also benefits collagen. What’s more, the form of vitamin C found in Synergie’s Suprema-C and Pure C is L-ascorbic acid – the only form that directly stimulates collagen
Finish off your morning routine with one of the Synergie Minerals foundations, all of which provide broad-spectrum sun protection using physical (not chemical) sunblocks (non-nanoparticle titanium dioxide and zinc oxide). For light cover, choose BB Flawless; it also contains 9% niacinamide! Mineral Whip is a multipurpose cream-to-powder foundation that provides heavier cover, and also serves as primer, sunblock and antioxidant. Second Skin Crush is a loose mineral powder foundation – but even it helps hydrate the skin by releasing tiny amounts of plant oils as it’s buffed in.
Once a week, consider using Masquerase, a luxuriant, deeply hydrating mask. Apply it like a moisturizer (that is, rub it in so it’s not visible on your skin) and then rinse off. Start off leaving it on for 20 minutes and then work up to leaving it on overnight for a once-weekly deep moisturizing treatment.
Remember: because all Synergie Skin products are developed and manufactured according to Clean Science principles, you can be sure that you’re giving your skin the best combination of plant-based and cosmeceutical ingredients – without any questionable ‘nasties’.
