A Moisturizer That Lets Your Skin Breathe From Guinot
Katherine Villavicencio , Assistant Editor
Whether it’s the early onset of aging signs, recurring breakouts or an adverse reaction to a product or treatment, many of us only change our skincare routine when the condition of our skin dramatically changes. In turn, we end up overlooking a very common, yet telling, sign that our skin may not be as healthy as we think: a dull complexion.
When skin cells are deprived of oxygen—often due to environmental aggravators like harsh weather, smoke and pollution—our complexion may begin to lose its natural luster, leading to a cloudy, dull appearance. And not only will it look worse, but the asphyxiated skin may also prohibit our skincare products from working efficiently and makeup from staying put.
To return health and glow, try "re-oxygenateing" your skin with Guinot’s new BiOXYGENE cream ($75). This freshly scented, fluffy moisturizer relies on the rejuvenating power of corn amino acids and peptides extracted from Moringa tree grain to replenish suffocating skin. By stimulating your skin’s cellular respiratory system, this lightweight cream helps increase skin's ability to absorb oxygen and allow it to "breathe" again.
When skin lacks the necessary oxygen for cells to function properly, it may also be on the drier side. BiOXYGENE draws on the nourishing power of vitamin E, shea butter, green tea extract and plant DNA to deliver a much-needed boost of moisture, leaving skin soft and radiant.
