A breakthrough in skin barrier repair developed to help restore normal flush response and durable hydration in rosacea patients with skin characterised by pronounced dryness, irritation and accelerated aging.
- serum-balm texture forms a liquid, breathable bandage on skin
- sets to an intensely hydrating, residue-free finish
- resolves tightness, flaking and peeling
- progressively reduces redness, burning and stinging
- matrix metalloproteinase inhibitors help increase firmness
- improves impression of facial fullness
- reduces visibility of pores which appear open due to chronic irritation
- suitable for use around the eyes
- intended for overnight use
Deuterium Oxide — naturally occurring form of water with heavier hydrogen, making it more resistant to evaporation.
Ceramides — contains an unprecedented combination of newly available skin-identical ceramides made possible by a formula intended for overnight use only.
Essential Fatty Acids — enhance and stabilise skin's ability to produce ceramides.
Biosaccharides — bind water and exert anti-inflammatory effects with high performance and suitability around the eyes.
Ilomastat — broad-spectrum matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor, reduces collagen breakdown to build firmness.
Polyglucuronate — superior to sodium hyaluronate in overnight use application.
Phospholipids — reinforce fragile skin cell structure.
Betaglucan and Schizophyllan — profoundly soothing and anti-inflammatory, stimulate the skin's immune system.
Silymarin and Resveratrol — anti-inflammatories and antioxidants which also contribute to daytime photoprotection.
Trehalose and Triacetin — intense, long-lasting evening moisturisers.
Phytonadione — helps protect against broken capillary formation.
Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate — absorbs papule and pustule exudate, helps purify and soothe pores.
Evening use only.
Apply Rosacea Pre-Cleansing Emulsifier, rinse and follow with Rosacea Anti-Inflammatory Foaming Cleanser (all skin types), Rosacea Oil-Free Purifying Gel Cleanser (all skin types) or Rosacea Hydrating De-Sensitising Cleansing Emulsion (very dry skin).
Reminder: cleanse with tepid water and gently pat skin dry with a soft towel or by pressing tissues flat against the skin. Do not rub.
Apply a few drops of of Rosacea Anti-Inflammatory Clearing Serum and gently smooth in until completely absorbed.
Complete night care with Rosacea Intensive Night Nurturing Complex.
Massage in gently and allow product 10-15 minutes to set before retiring.
Suitable for use around the eyes. In case of ocular rosacea, apply Ocular Rosacea Soothing Serum underneath.
