Apply enough TimeWise Moisture Renewing Softener to saturate a cotton pad.
Using the pad, sweep the softener over your freshly washed face, starting at the widest part, such as the cheeks or forehead, and moving in a circular motion from the centre outward.
To finish, move the cotton pad in an upward and outward motion to apply the softener from the collarbone to the base of the chin.
Sodium Hyaluronate – attracts and maintains moisture. Closely related to hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate is a powerful humectant that acts like a sponge on your skin — helping to attract vital moisture so your skin can use it more effectively. In addition, it can help reduce trans-epidermal water loss, a process through which water passes through the epidermal layer of the skin, evaporates and is lost forever. Slowing down this process is a good thing for your skin. Sodium hyaluronate also has moisturising benefits that leave skin feeling soft and smooth.
Botanical Extracts – natural age-fighting antioxidants. TimeWise Moisture Renewing Softener has been formulated with two key age-fighting botanicals — Myrtus Communis and Lentil Seed Extract. Myrtus Communis is derived from myrtle, a flowering plant known for its replenishing properties. These ingredients have been shown to reduce the activity of enzymes involved in the breakdown of collagen.* And as an antioxidant, the Myrtus Communis extract helps neutralise the aging effects of free radicals. Plus, it’s known to have a calming effect on the skin.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) – minimises the effects of UV damage.* Niacinamide is one of the two principle forms of vitamin B3 and is scientifically known to fortify the skin’s barrier. Maintaining a healthy skin barrier is a critical element of youthful skin because when the barrier is compromised, the skin can lose moisture and become more susceptible to damage. Niacinamide has been shown* to minimise the damaging effects of UV exposure that result in uneven pigmentation.
Acai Berry Extract (Euterpe Oleracea) – is an antioxidant superpower. This extract is derived from the superfruit that lives up to its name. The acai berry is native to South America and is a small, dark purple fruit that resembles a grape and is produced by the acai palm tree. This fruit has been reported to neutralise free radicals at a potency rate more than 80 times that of Green Tea, making it an antioxidant superpower.
Botanical Blend – TimeWise Moisture Renewing Softener has been formulated with several botanical extracts including chamomile (Anthemus Nobilius Flower), lavandin (Lavandula Hybrid), rosemary (Rosemarinus Officinalis), rosewood (Aniba Rosaiodora) and geranium (Pelargonium Graveolens).
