New: HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle + Detox Collection
You may not realize it, but your skin is constantly being inundated by indoor and outdoor pollutants, including from all of your digital devices. Environmental pollution can cause skin stress, fatigue and inflammation, all of which can lead to premature ageing. Luckily, performance-based skincare is catching up to the rigorous demands of our daily lives and offering protection.
HydroPeptide, the US anti-ageing luxury skincare brand just launched their Anti-Wrinkle + Detox Collection, a line-up of products that combat environmental pollution, including the HEV/blue light your devices (smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop) give off.
Environmental pollution can be broadly defined as anything that negatively impacts the skin, but typically refers to man-made pollution such as car exhaust, cigarette smoke, etc. Recently, environmental pollution also refers to indoor sources such as digital screens and artificial light. HydroPeptide’s latest products in their Anti-Wrinkle + Detox Collection were specifically designed to combat these negative stimuli by helping to reduce inflammation, remove physical debris and fight free radical damage as well as by creating a protective shield and fortifying skin to better protect itself.
The new four piece Anti-Wrinkle + Detox Collection includes:
- Bambusa Blackhead Banisher: a blackhead clearing strip that is infused with charcoal, antibacterial volcanic ash and antioxidant-rich bamboo extract to gently and effectively draw out congestion and reduce the look of pores around the nose.
- HydroActive Cleanse: cleansing cloths that remove makeup and pollution infused with micellar and activated water with moisture-balancing peptides to provide hydration.
- HydraFlora, a pore-perfecting essence rich in both pre- and pro-biotics to keep the skin’s microbiome balanced, as well as a blend of botanical extracts brimming with antioxidants that protect the skin from free radical damage.
- Somnifera Root Mist, a hydrating, soothing and pollution-blocking skin mist enriched with Somnifera Root Extract, which protects against damaging blue light and atmospheric pollution. Formulated with HydrO18™ Activated Water™, this spray replenishes lost moisture and revives the look of skin over or under makeup throughout the day.
We love all of the products in the new collection. But our two favourites are the HydraFlora Probiotic Toner Essence and the Somnifera Root Mist.
HydraFlora isn’t simply a toner. It helps keeping the microbiome of the skin in a symbiotic state. Bacteria are found in the microflora on our skin and they are vitally important for maintaining the overall balance of our skin. They can help to reduce inflammation, balance pH, fight free radicals, improve oxygenation and support healthy collagen. Probiotics are the good bacteria themselves; these are the live bacteria that live on our skin. Probiotic extracts, which is what HydroPeptide uses, are extracts taken from probiotics and used to nourish and support the probiotics on our skin. It’s a similar concept to plant extracts. Similarly, prebiotics are the “food” that probiotics eat, so they help to support the healthy bacteria on our skin as well. They don’t use any live bacteria in HydroPeptide products so you don’t have to worry about refrigeration or expiration.
Somnifera Root Mist should be on your desk or in your purse at all times. Give yourself a few quick sprays anytime your skin is feeling dry and instantly it will look dewy and revived. Somnifera Root Mist is a daily-use mist with blue light protection that helps our skin combat fatigue and damage caused by environmental pollution as well as indoor pollution from digital screens and fluorescent lighting. Since it is recommended to use Somnifera Root Mist multiple times a day HydroPeptide felt it was essential to incorporate HydrO18™ Activated Water™ for added hydration to nourish the skin. HydrO18 Activated Water is considered “smart water”. Standard water in a formulation does not hydrate the skin. By adding HydrO18 to the formulation, the water is activated so that true hydration is achieved. Studies have shown that the unique solution of macadamia glycerides found in HydrO18 effectively deliver water into the skin. The water is truly absorbed as opposed to evaporating out.
There’s a lot to love about HydroPeptide’s products. Number one is the results. Number two is their pragmatic approach to ingredients. All HydroPeptide products are formulated using clean ingredients and are free of gluten, fragrance, parabens, phenoxyethanol, polyethylene glycol, phthalates and sulphates. They are never tested on animals and are tested and recommended by a team of dermatologists.
