The cold winter weather brings us more than just frigid temperatures. It brings us static, the desire to hibernate, high heating bills, and worse of all dry and sometimes irritated skin. We start packing on the moisturizers and struggle to combat the dry, flaky, red skin. As beauty health professionals we trust our skin in the hands of Dr. Obagi with his evolving Z.O. Skin health products that deliver hydration and calming without the harmful effects of moisturizer.
But Wait! You probably thought that moisturizers were good for your skin, but that’s not the case. Hydrators are more like a little I.V. for the skin that penetrates into the cell and nourishes it from the inside out.
Moisturizes are more like a coat on a cold day. It artificially hydrates from the outside of the cell, keeping outside elements from entering the cell and inside elements from escaping out. If you coat a dehydrated cell, you basically suffocate it and deprive it of the nourishments it needs to function optimally. As a result, skin cells are no longer triggered to produce their own means of hydration. This slowing of the natural hydration process leads to a weakened skin barrier function and a dependency on moisturizers. YIKES!!
ZO hydrators contain key ingredients that rejuvenate these slow producing cells and stimulate them to begin producing hydration from within so that skin looks revitalized, healthy and youthful. Three ZO hydration and calming products include Ommerse Renewal Crème, Ommerse Overnight Recovery Crème Restoracalm and Revitatrol. So how do you know which product is right for you? Our ZO skin health professionals consider your skin type, currently skin state, needs, and desires to find the perfect match for your skin’s barrier function.
The Anti-aging formulas of both Ommerse Renewal Crème and Overnight Recovery Crème complement the skin’s own natural recovery process, providing a natural, non-steroidal approach to calming and soothing irritated skin. By providing powerful antioxidant and restorative enzymes, vital cells involved in the skin’s immune system are protected and support is given to stimulate the skin’s DNA repair mechanism.
Retinol stimulates the epidermal renewal and collagen production to help even out tone while Canadian willowherb extracts soothes, protects and reduces redness and irritation. Both of these products are great for those experiencing dry or irritated skin that want to repair and rejuvenate skin cells while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Ommerse Overnight Recovery Crème addresses those with severely dry skin by adding ingredients of Ceramide 2, soline, squalene, and shea butter which hydrates the skin by creating a barrier that protects against transdermal water loss.
Formulated for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, ZO offers Restoracalm and Revitatrol. Both of these products use Beta-glucan to soothe and provide rapid relief to reduce skin redness. Plant stem cells calm irritated skin and provided potent antioxidant properties to provide DNA repair and protection while stimulating the natural skin barrier restoration.
The dual-purpose formula of Revitatrol and Restoracalm delivers essential hydration for post- procedure, compromised, or dry irritated skin.
Restoracalm amplifies the cell renewal and growth process by adding Red Ginseng extract and Retinol for epidermal renewal.
With ZO hydrating and calming solutions you can rejuvenate, restore, and rewind your skin’s aging process with just the push of a pump.
