A Layer Of Lipids To Lock In Moisture

Moisture escapes from skin so quickly, it often feels like it's gone mere moments after applying face cream. One of the keys to getting it to last longer is lipids, the fat-related molecules that can create the closest thing cosmetic science has come to a moisture barrier.

You can find them in the form of ceramides and cholesterol (we know-scary word, but it's great for your skin) in Moisture Rescue Essential Lipids by SKN Beverly Hills. One of the brand's "sexy black serums," this formula combines moisture-sealing lipids with skin-smoothing silicone to promote lasting hydration.

Superb at reducing the look of fine lines, which are exaggerated by dryness, Moisture Rescue Essential Lipids is ideal after procedures when other products aren't. But other products will go untouched anyway when you see how hydrated-and for how long-your skin becomes with this serum.
