SPOTLIGHT 28 @dayspamagazine • Januar y 2019 Turner: For instant, noticeable improvement with no downtime or irritation, we offer the HydraFacial (60-90 min./$225-$299). This treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while drenching the new skin with cleansing and moisturizing serums. It's soothing, refreshing and effective. What are the best ingredients and strategies for keeping skin properly hydrated? Poel: Hyaluronic acid (HA), vitamin C, dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), ascorbyl palmitate, shea butter, cocoa and coffee butters, omegas, seabuckthorn oil, calendula oil and natural peptides are all created to be transdermal, meaning they penetrate into the dermis for optimal effi cacy. Dry skin can be exacerbated by a lack of suffi cient essential fatty acids, so it's also smart to eat avocados, nuts and seeds. Avoid too much caffeine, alcohol and processed foods. I also recommend drinking lots of water and taking supplements such as probiotics and Elina Organics Skin Balance. As beauty is refl ected from within, focus on happiness, joy, gratitude and kindness—and surround yourself with love! Simonenko: Growth factors, vitamin C, glycerin, rose oil, and a low concentration of vitamin A are among the best ingredients for skin hydration. Ramirez: Look for products containing grape seed oil, aloe, glycerin and/or coconut oil. Almost every brand has smartened up and now adds beeswax to its line of hydrating products—it's also great for dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Turner: Dehydration can be treated with regular exfoliation and targeted products, such as Kerstin Florian Correcting Hyaluronic Serum. I also advise guests to carry Caudalie Grape Water with them, and spritz often. Other ingredients to look for include vitamin E and resveratrol, which increases the skin's natural production of HA. Dubois: Dry skin requires moisturizers containing humectants (glycerin, HA, amino acids), occlusives (cocoa butter, zinc oxide, ceramides) and emollients (shea butter, lauric acid, aloe vera). Incorporating hydrating masks into a skincare routine a few times a week, as well as using HA serums, can make a big difference. I suggest using a humidifi er during the colder months when air is dry, and avoiding very hot showers and baths (even though they feel great when temperatures drop!). Believe it or not, adding real ferns to the home can help increase moisture in the air, too. u Kerstin Florian Correcting Hyaluronic Serum kerstinfl Timeless By Pevonia Age-Defying Collagen Ampoules SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 © GETTY IMAGES Ráya Chamomile Cleansing Milk Yon-Ka Paris Lotion Yon-Ka Jane Iredale Pommisst Hydration Spray
