Even at the height of summer, your skin can suffer from dehydration and depletion—thanks to factors like sun exposure, air conditioning, and long flights. But when it comes to skincare, most of us want to keep things light. Enter: Transparence and Régénerant, two of our favorite products this season. Why? Because they feel like water, but perform like a serum, and essentially act as a humidifier for the skin. Layered over a few drops of oil (we suggest Pur), these refreshing botanical waters absorb instantly and penetrate deeply to provide maximum hydration with minimal effort.
The lighter option of the two, Transparence’s claim to fame is its natural polysaccharides which can absorb water at more than 1,000 times their own weight. (Take that, hyaluronic acid.) Designed for all skin types, Transparence utilizes a special technology that allows plant actives and extracts, preserved in microscopic concentrated oil capsules, to penetrate on the deepest level for a bright, firm complexion.
Designed for dry, dehydrated, and mature skin, Régénerant stimulates the circulation of water in the skin, resulting in deep hydration. It also delivers high concentrations of antioxidants to protect against free-radicals and inflammation. If you’ve traveled extensively, been exposed to a few too many harsh rays, or feel that your skin needs a bit of soothing and regenerating, Régénerant is right for you.
