TEWL, ehh what??
We’re starting with a fancy term to give you some context. Get ready... transepidermal water loss. There, we said it. TEWL (as it’s more commonly known) is when our skin loses water through evaporation. It’s a normal, natural process. But when water evaporates faster than our bodies can replace it, our skin looks dull, tired and dehydrated. And who wants that? So, we created #powernap.
Say whaaat?! to the memory-shape texture
Ridiculously rich in texture, #powernap has an innovative ingredient that makes it super-soft and bouncy to the touch. Over time, any finger marks on the surface of the cream melt away as #powernap magically remoulds itself to looking ‘as good as new’. We call it the memory-shape effect. Oooooo.
Works wonders while you sleep
Your skin’s the most receptive to skincare when you sleep. So, layer #powernap on and catch some serious beauty Z’s. Even after a short night, your skin will feel renewed and that dull, dehydrated look will be so yesterday!
POLYURETHANE-62: This multitalented maven plays not one but two leading roles in #powernap. First and foremost, she improves the skin barrier function, which helps to reduce TEWL (transepidermal water loss) and deliver intense moisturization to the skin. While the second role is more feel-wise and gives the cream its bouncy texture and innovative memory shape effect. So, over time, any finger marks on the surface magically remould making the cream look as good as new.
BUTYLENE GLYCOL: To use a fancy term, this one’s a great humectant moisturizer, which basically means it holds onto water and keeps your skin hydrated to the max. Perfect for sensitive and irritated skin, we think this might just be the most skin-friendly glycol in town.
PROPANEDIOL: A super-duper skin softener that’s excellent for dry, dull skin, this natural hydrator comes from corn! And what a clever ingredient it is. When on the skin, Propanediol forms a surface barrier that helps prevent water loss. As time goes on, water builds up in the uppermost layer of the skin, so your complexion has a whole lotta hydration.
PRICKLY PEAR & POTASSIUM PCA: A heavyweight hydrator… a master of moisturization… this innovative vegetal complex is a triple threat when it comes to short and long-term moisturization. Get ready to count. Prickly pear & potassium PCA balances the intracellular water flow and hydrates the skin by (1) stimulating aquaporins (water channels), which (2) prevent water loss and (3) reinforce the skin’s natural barrier. Wow, three really is the magic number!
For an overnight delight Before you head to bed, apply a generous and even layer of #powernap on cleansed, dry skin avoiding the eye area. Leave it on overnight. If necessary, remove any excess product in the morning before following your normal skincare routine.
If you have combination skin, try the mask on the dry areas first, avoiding the T-zone.
For a quick skin-quench Apply an even layer of #powernap on your cleansed, dry face avoiding the eye area. Leave it on for 20minutes and rinse.
For a chilled eye treatment Put #powernap in the fridge for 30 minutes. Once chilled, apply it to the cleansed, dry skin under your eyes. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse.
For super-soft hands Coat your hands with #powernap. Rinse after 30 minutes or leave it to sink in overnight for a more intense hand treatment.
