I never think about aging, said our grandmother. Aging is natural, said our mother. Aging is beautiful, said our best friend. And yet, as much as we’re loving the wisdom that comes with every wrinkle, we’d still rather not be reminded of each 365 when we look in the mirror. So, we say: aging is hydration. As in Dermalogica’s Circular Hydration Serum.
Why hydration? Easy. It soothes our face and smooths our fine lines. Not into oblivion, but definitely out of sight. Long lasting, Dermalogica’s skin-saving serum contains hyaluronic acid for deep hydration that makes our face look softer, brighter too and, well, maybe even a bit younger. Its infusion of algae extract ensures that our hit of hydration happens sooner than later and lasts throughout the day. Polyglutamic acid from fermented soy works hard to replenish our skin’s natural moisture, while the formula’s plant-derived sugars and a blend of amino acids help trap water on our skin’s surface.
We like to use the serum twice a day for maximum impact; on clean skin before we apply our day and/or evening creams. It’s working too. The crow’s feet scattered around our eyes appear to be less intense and that tired look we can never seem to shake has faded away. As for any dry skin, that was remedied almost with our first application. Aging, we’ve decided, may very well be about our skincare choices.
