Let’s face it, today’s urban environment is never kind to our skin. From UV exposure to air-conditioning, our skin has suffered poor water circulation and dryness. Sometimes, your moisturiser is just not enough. Bioderma‘s latest Hydrabio range aims to do better than just moisturising by increasing skin’s natural irrigation from the inside. How? This innovative skin care offers a triple hydrating action – giving superficial moisture with glycerine and other moisturisers, teaching skin to retain hydration from within, and facilitating water circulation with a unique apple seed extract that opens up skin’s aquaporins so water flows though every layer of the skin. Say hello to the key active ingredient, vitamin PP which rebuilds the lipids between the cells, so it acts like cement to help retain water in the skin layers.
Fash-Review: First of all, Bioderma Hydrabio skincare range is highly affordable. More importantly, is it effective? Prior to this range, I was using Bioderma’s Crealine H2O to remove my daily sunscreen or makeup which works perfectly fine for me. I was very excited to try Hydrabio H20 which is more hydrating. It’s no-rinse formula makes it easy to clean even the most stubborn mascara – best of all, my skin doesn’t feel tight after. Another of my favourite is the Hydrabio Serum which contains hyaluronic acid for the extra “oomph”. Overall, this is a great skincare range for those with sensitive, dry skin without the additional frills. Once again, it’s super affordable – so why not?
Could this be the answer to long-lasting, well-irrigated skin? Possibly.
