Deep Dive Into Hydration with Medik8 H.E.O. Mask
H.E.O. Mask’s innovative yet fundamentally scientific approach is built on the three fundamental elements of true moisturisation: Humectants, Emollients and, Occlusives.
“Combined together in an optimised ratio, this powerhouse trio provides the ultimate solution for dry and dehydrated skin,” explains Daniel Isaacs, Medik8’s Director of Research. “Humectants are conditioning agents that regulate moisture levels in the skin. They’re able to retain that moisture and immobilise water molecules, keeping them within the skin in order to maintain and boost hydration levels. Emollients, on the other hand, are long chains of saturated fatty acids which utilise their skin-identical lipid properties to form a waterproof barrier in the upper layers of the skin. This helps to repair the skin’s barrier function which is essential for keeping the skin hydrated and healthy-looking. Finally, occlusives are mainly oil-based and are made up of large molecules that are too big to penetrate the skin and instead maintain the moisture content of the skin by reducing transepidermal water loss,” says Daniel Isaacs.
All three elements work synergistically in a carefully balanced ratio to leave the skin deeply hydrated, visibly plumped and strengthened against moisture loss while also creating a relaxing, pre-sleep ritual that allows for a moment of self-care. H.E.O. Mask provides optimal balance for ultimate results.
H.E.O. Mask is packaged in two tubes; one of which contains the cooling, water-based gel while the other holds the silky, nourishing cream. It is ideal for those with dry, dehydrated skin as well as anyone looking for an extra boost of long-lasting moisture. It can also be used to prepare the skin before a big event or to intensely soothe the complexion following exposure to the sun or cold weather. As is the case with all Medik8 formulas, H.E.O. Mask is 100% cruelty-free and vegan. It is also fragrance-free as well as clinically proven to be non-comedogenic and ultra-gentle on all skin types.
