Beat The Heat

Lately, it feels like the sun is out to get us. Maybe because I’m writing this in the outdoors, attempting to chill over the weekend. But chilling I am not, as I continue to soak in this sweat. Sweating can leave our skin prone to breakouts and acne especially for oily or sensitive skin, pores open up too due to humidity and start gathering dirt and oil and not to mention the water lost in the evaporation process affecting our skin hydration level.

We can’t avoid this transepiderma water loss as it is a continuous process over which we have little control. But we can strengthen our skin barrier, hydrate deeper into the skin and create water channels to flow within the skin. That’s what the three Bioderma new-generation moisturizers do, an inspiration from the skin itself. And that is in line with the brand’s philosophy.

Staying Outdoor with Hydrabio

Whether it’s steamy summers or chilly winters, deep hydration is key to taking care of our skin.

I have just paused and imagined the water channels in my body, the amazing system within us, and streams of water flowing in us, I love that…inner chilling I suppose. Or I should just hit indoors now! Hehe!


Bioderma Hydrators

New-Gen Power-Packed Hydrators

Yes, you read it right. Bioderma launches not just one but three moisturizers this summer to keep our skin hydrated and perfectly moisturized with freshness and luminosity.

The latest additions to the Hydrabio range boasts new technology and different textures to cater to the different skin types and needs of our busy lifestyle today. With the introduction of the power-boosting Physiological Lamellar Emulsion base technology and the Aquagenium patent, below are the three new hydrators!

  1. Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30PA+++: Moisturizer with UVA/UVB protection and make-up base.
  2. Hydrabio Gel-Crème: Gel-like texture moisturizer for intense and lasting radiance. Suited for those with normal to oily skin.
  3. Hydrabio Crème: A heavy-duty moisturizer with added hyaluronic acid and squalene perfect for night treatment and suited for dry to very dry sensitive skin.

Today, I will highlight on the Perfecteur as I have been using this often lately and am loving how my skin is behaving and feeling. Less is more, here’s why.


Bioderma Perfecteur

Less is More

The star product of this new launch is also my star product!

One tube that does so much, cutting down our beauty routine yet keeping skin protected and comfortable in this heat. The last thing I want now is to have skincare and makeup layered and soaked. Less is indeed more with this power-packed multi-tasker.

1. Shorten Beauty Routine:

A moisturizer, sun-protector, radiance booster and makeup base, you don’t need to pile your skin up with products especially in this heat.

2. Deep Lasting Hydration:

It contains moisturizing agents such as rapeseed extract and glycerin to soften and smoothen the skin while salicylic acid exfoliates.

3. Anti-ageing:

It prevents premature ageing as it contains antioxidants such as Vitamin E and arginine to protect against free radicals.

Bioderma Sun Protection

4. Sun-Protection:

A moisturizer that comes with SPF30PA+++, it gives UVA/UVB protection. I used to be particular about the separate functions moisturizers and sunblocks play. It has got to have their respective focus but with newer proven technology, I’m starting to embrace and move with the times. Haha!

5. Radiance Booster and Makeup Base:

As such, it makes a good make-up base with blurring effects of soft powders and pearls of mica that cover micro-wrinkles, blemishes and imperfections. It has a velvety finish with a rosy tint which makes the perfect canvas for foundation. So far, I prefer to wear it on its own and bring it along for touch-ups and SPF protection. The tube with a pump makes it more handy.

6. Skin Types:

Suitable for different skin types in different climates especially so as Hyrabio caters mainly for dehydrated sensitive skin. Paraben-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and is alcohol-free.

Water Channels Within the Skin

That basically sums up how the Perfecteur helps beat the heat and fit into our busy schedules. And here’s a little more on the science behind it and the rest of the new-gen hydrators.

Aquagenium patent is an existing feature in all Hydrabio products It includes Vitamin PP which strengthens skin resistance and impermeability by making the skin produce more of its own ceramides, critical to preventing water loss and the Apple Seeds Extract which triggers the skin to make more of its own aquaporins or water channels to improve water flow within the skin.

Now, with the new hydrators, the Aquagenium complex is being aided by the Physiological Lamellar Emulsion base technology to benefit the skin more than ever. It is an oil-in-water-in-oil structure that fuses with the skin to allow for the restoration of the skin’s barrier and deeper penetration of active ingredients.
