Designed specifically for compromised and post-treatment skin, this ultra-rich cream works to provide all-day moisture and comfort. Perfect for those with very dry skin and for use after aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, skin needling, lasers and microdermabrasion. Its intelligent formulation creates a protective barrier on the skin’s surface to keep hydration locked in tight while shielding against everyday irritants so that skin can repair and regenerate quickly. The gentle formula leaves skin looking nourished and healthy looking.
HOW IT WORKS
Post-treatment or compromised skin is exceptionally delicate and needs special attention. Damaged skin often has an impaired natural barrier. This means it is unable to defend against the environment and can lose hydration quickly. Ultimate RecoveryIntense combines repairing actives to help restore weakened skin barriers. Perfluorodecalin helps to increase the levels of oxygen in the skin, which are vital for promoting skin’s natural healing capabilities. Beta-Glucan comforts inflamed, sore skin by bringing down redness, while arnica helps to stimulate the immune system to ease bruising and condition the skin. Silk serica stimulates the renewal cycle of the skin to help restore its natural barrier against impurities. Meanwhile, Ultimate Recovery Intense restores hydration levels to provide the ideal moisture environment for healing.
The rare Arnica montana is a bright yellow aromatic wildflower that grows in mountainous regions of Europe. It is often referred to as leopard’s bane. In folklore, humans discovered the power of arnica when they spotted mountain goats seeking out the arnica plant whenever they injured themselves after falling. Historically used as a natural remedy for bruising and sore muscles, arnica lends its anti-inflammatory properties to relieving sore skin.
Perfluorodecalin – By enhancing the levels of oxygen in the skin, perfluorodecalin can promote the healing capabilities of damaged complexions.
beta-Glucan – A natural extract derived from oats, beta-glucan enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself while providing immediate comfort to inflamed skin.
Arnica – A naturally derived flower extract, arnica harnesses superior anti-bruising power, to calm even the most sensitive of skin.
Silk Serica – Derived from pure and natural silk, serica enhances the skin’s natural regenerative cycle to encourage complexion renewal.
