What Is Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum?

We are excited to bring you a new product from Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum. Kick-start skin’s hydration cycle with this long-lasting serum that immediately floods skin with hydration, replenishes from within, and helps prevent future hydration evaporation. We caught up with Dermalogica’s Education Manager Victoria Evans to find out more.

Q. In a nutshell, what is Circular Hydration Serum?
Circular Hydration Serum is a new way to hydrate your skin and achieve healthy radiant skin. Many of us are aware of the benefits of using a Hyaluronic Acid serum, however, due to skin’s hydration cycle, moisture is constantly lost through the skin’s surface layers to the atmosphere. The hydration that we apply to plump and smooth our skin is often being lost via evaporation. Circular Hydration Serum works differently to your typical hydrating serum by not only delivering hydration but by locking it in and stimulating hydration from within.

Q. Hydrating serums address dehydration, does this condition affect all skins?
Yes! As a professional skin therapist, I vary rarely see a skin without some degree of dehydration. It affects all skin types and ages, even oily skins. One of the hallmarks of dehydrated skin is a tight, dry feeling – particularly after cleansing. Dehydrated skin will often also present as visible flakiness with fine, crepey lines. Oiliness can also be a sign of dehydration: when skin lacks adequate water, it may over-produce sebum (oil) in an attempt to compensate for the lack of hydration. This presents as oiliness and possible congestion along with a dry or flaky-looking appearance.

Q. Circular Hydration Serum replaces Skin Hydrating Booster. What’s the difference?
Skin Hydrating Booster was an excellent formula for combating dehydrated skin. The innovative ingredient technologies in Circular Hydration Serum, however, take hydration to a new level – delivering immediate hydration while also nourishing the skin to help prevent future dehydration. Circular Hydration Serum is an evolution of Skin Hydrating Booster providing the latest in skin hydration technology to advance skin’s hydration cycle.

Tell us about this innovative hydration technology
Circular Hydration Serum works in 3 ways to deeply hydrate the skin.

1. Locks in hydration and promotes barrier protection
Includes ingredients that help minimise water evaporation from the surface of the skin and delivers quick and long-lasting hydration such as high molecular weight Polyglutamic Acid, Algae Extract-infused moisturising matrix, and Hydrolysed Rice Protein. In addition, Lactobacillus Ferment + Avena (Oat) Extract helps balance skin’s microbiome.

2. Delivers natural hydration
To replenish the skin with moisture, a blend of moisturising Amino Acid molecules similar to skin’s Natural Moisturising Factor attract and bind water on skin’s surface plus Hyaluronic Acid with organic Silicium easily penetrates the skin, delivering Hyaluronic Acid into deeper layers for radiant skin.

3. Stimulates hydration from within
To stimulate our own moisturising molecules within the skin, low molecular weight Polyglutamic Acid from fermented soybean, improves water reserves by stimulating the production of Hyaluronic Acid and Natural Moisturising Factors to enhance skin thickness and help firm the skin. Combined with plant-derived sugars that stimulate Hyaluronic Acid and production of glycosaminoglycans to help improve skin’s water reserves for long-lasting hydration.
Clinical studies show that Circular Hydration Serum deeply hydrates skin for 10+ hours and increases hydration levels over time.

Q. Who is this serum for and how do we use it?

Circular Hydration Serum can be used by anyone of any age or skin type as it’s designed to hydrate the skin instantly and overtime to bring radiance and glow. Diligent, daily hydration – even when skin isn’t feeling thirsty – will prevent future dehydration and a compromised barrier. Dispense a few drops of Circular Hydration Serum and smooth over cleansed face and neck morning and night after toning and before moisturising.

Q. Do you recommend any other products that work well with the serum?

Yes, Circular Hydration Serum pairs well with Intensive Moisture Cleanser and Skin Smoothing Cream. All formulas work together to address skin hydration for optimum skin health.
