Are You Heading for a Severe Skin Drought? – Hada Labo Tokyo, Japan’s Top Selling Skin Care Brand Has the Solution.
Nearly half of women don’t have a skincare routine that they follow every day, according to new research by Japan’s top-selling skincare brand, Hada Labo Tokyo. Many feel this is due to a lack of time, whereas others claim that they don’t need a routine at all.
Having worked in the beauty business in my teens, taking that through much of my career, I personally am a firm believer that preventative is better than cure and have always had a good skincare routine, the importance of which I have passed onto my children, and hope, one day, they do the same too.
Our skin is an organ, the biggest one at that, and much like other organs in the body, the skin’s tissue is made up of many types of cells, which all need water to function properly.
I recently attended an event, that highlighted the importance of looking after your skin, by Aesthetics skin care specialist Dr Noman Mohamed, who is also a member of the Hada Labo Tokyo Skin Care Panel. Dr Mohamed says, “the three essential stages of a skincare routine – cleanse, hydrate and moisturise, play an essential role in supporting skin to keep it hydrated, plump, youthful and smooth.
Without a regular skincare routine, many of us are putting our skin at risk of dehydration and accelerated ageing. While dietary habits and UV light do have an impact on our skin’s hydration levels, our skincare routine is also vital.
The key ingredient for keeping skin hydrated is hyaluronic acid, a hydration hero, and a key ingredient in Hada Labo’s skincare range. As we age, our body’s levels of hyaluronic acid fall.
If you consider that one-third of hyaluronic acid is found in the skin, with hyaluronic acid levels halving by the time we’re 50, then this is naturally going to have a significant impact on hydration levels.”
The three essential stages of a skincare routine:
Cleansing cleans the skin. It’s an effective way of removing dirt, grime and makeup that has built up over the day, so you provide a clear base for the next layer of products.
The Hada Labo Tokyo Gentle Hydrating Cleanser contains three types of HA, formulated to cleanse, protect and lock in moisture, leaving skin silky smooth.
Hydrate… hydration is vital to keep skin youthful. This is where HA comes into its own.
From the Hada Labo white line, try Hada Labo Tokyo’s Super Hydrator Lotion; a light lotion that penetrates the skin within seconds. With deeply moisturising active ingredients, including Super Hyaluronic Acid, it seals hydration inside the skin, stopping water from evaporating, to hold back the appearance of wrinkles.
The Hada Labo Anti-Ageing Super Hydrator Lotion from the Japanese brand’s red line, is power-packed as it contains four types of HA, offering multi-layer hydration, plus anti-ageing ingredients collagen and retinol.
There’s also the Hada Labo Tokyo Intense Hydrating Skin Plumping Gel, a luxuriously delicate gel which works as a cream and a serum. A high concentration of Super Hyaluronic Acid makes it intensely moisturising, filling in the skin to create a smooth, ultra-soft complexion.
It’s also important to keep the thinner, more delicate skin around our eyes hydrated. Hada Labo Tokyo Smoothing Anti Fatigue Eye Cream intensely moisturises and smoothes the skin around the eyes. Super Hyaluronic Acid reduces wrinkles and signs of fatigue, collagen and pink silk tree extract rejuvenate and firms the skin, and caffeine eliminates under-eye circles and puffiness. Hada Labo Tokyo Anti-Ageing Eye & Mouth Cream is ideal after cleansing in the morning and at night.
Moisturiser is an essential part of a skincare routine, helping to keep our skin ‘well-watered’. Morning and evening are key times to apply moisturiser, after cleansing, on clean, fresh skin.
Hada Labo Tokyo Anti-Ageing Wrinkle Reducer Day Cream offers multi-layer hydration with four types of HA plus collagen and retinol. For bedtime, Hada Labo Tokyo Anti-Ageing Repair Night Cream is packed with more than 20 carefully blended active ingredients, including three types of HA, retinol and an intensely regenerating complex of tetrapeptide-5 and collagen to reduce wrinkles and restore radiance and hydration.
Hada Labo Tokyo Absolute Smoothing & Moisturising Cream (Day & Night) has a high concentration of Super Hyaluronic Acid so it can intensely moisturise and smooth the skin, helping to put the brakes on the ageing process.
Dr Noman Mohamed reiterates that using a simple set of products – namely the Hada Labo Tokyo range – with the right set of ingredients, every day is one of the best things you can do for healthy skin.
