  • Liposomal hydration - where have you been all my life?



    Even with using the best of of the best of botanical hydrators (thank you Laurel Elixir!) my lipid dry skin still lives it's best life with a hydration booster. Living in Calgary with our dry air, cold temperatures and hard water takes it's toll on our lipid barriers. 



    Our lipid barrier naturally contains the NMF (natural moisturizering factor) and part of it's job is to draw hydration from the air into our skin. But when you live in a climate that is more desert than humid, our epidermis can struggle to maintain optimal hydration. This is very important as there are so many processes in our skin that are dependent on proper enzymatic function and enzymes need water to do their job. Want good cell turnover and timely exfoliation of our skin cells? Maintain optimal hydration in the epidermis because that's an enzymatic process.



    I find topical hydration to be one of the most misunderstood aspects of our skin ritual. Most brush it off as a "feel good" only step, not understanding that at a very simple level, our skin needs water & oil. And it prefers it in a seperate application. 



    This mist can be used as a stand alone hydration step or as a booster to your already existing beloved hydrator if you want the combination of plant extracts. I typically use my Laurel Elixir first, then follow with a boost of Especial K and my skin couldn't be happier!
