Living well is so much more than just indulging in high end products, you have to make sure those products are working for you. Now Sisley takes science a step further… beyond simply indulging your skin in an hydration boost, Sisley’s new Hydra-Global Serum teaches skin to restore its own moisture level!
The human body is so wonderfully created to be self-sufficient, able to take in water and circulate it throughout the various skin layers and retain it naturally. But with the stresses of life, pollution and urban lifestyle, even the most resilient need some help. With the Sisley Hydra-Global Serum, skin’s autonomous hydration system is given a jumpstart to restore hydration deep within the dermal layers.
Skin’s hyaluronic acid levels gradually diminish over time, losing the ability to store water in the dermis and epidermis. To rectify this, Sisley Hydra-Global Serum contains blue agave yeast and carob bean extracts which promote the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in the dermis and epidermis, thereby replenish the hydric layer and boost water reserves. Japanese cedar bud extract encourages formation of NMF that keeps skin hydrated in the stratum corneum level.
Even with proper ability to store water, skin needs aquaporins to allow efficient circulation of water. Sisley Hydra-Global Serum utilizes the main active ingredient of the line – Wild pansy extract – to stimulate the synthesis of aquaporin-3 and encourage water migration.
The last step to Sisley’s holistic approach to hydration is to reinforce water retention and prevent evaporation. By incorporating carob bean extract and edelweiss extract, the Serum is able to prevent degradation of the hydric barrier and enhance the impermeability of the corneous layer, ensuring the epidermis remains watertight.
A single pump dispenses sufficient product for my entire face, but I like to use 2 to extend down my neck and ears. The light aqueous gel texture smoothens over the skin and is immediately absorbed, leaving no trace except a soft silkiness. I love the lavender scent that soothes and relaxes my soul. In addition to all the wonderful ingredients discussed above, Sisley Hydra-Global Serum also contains malachite extract and Vitamin E acetate to protect the skin against environmental stresses. I also really like the inclusion of adenosine which is a great anti-aging ingredient.
