In our last blog post, we talked about two products that we highly recommend to our clients for laser hair removal treatment: Gentle Cleanser and Hydrogel. These offer a number of benefits to soothe and heal the skin before and after each appointment. However, they can be used for so much more than just that. In fact, the Urban Body Laser team uses these two products in their daily skin care regime.
Having a medicine cabinet stocked to the brim with a different bottle for each possible skin treatment not only becomes confusing, but it’s also a waste of money. That’s why we love products that are both effective and versatile, and these two Pro-Derm skin care items are the perfect example of multiple uses all in one.
Hydrogel is a dermal calming product that can be used for many other skin conditions besides just post laser treatment. It rapidly soothes skin with it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti fungal, and anti-bacterial properties. It is enriched with Vitamin C, Omega 3-6-9 Fatty Acids, Sea Fennel, and Bio Aloe. It also contains Everlasting and Geranium essential oils that are natural preservatives, making this product free of parabens.
Any kind of Dermatitis responds very well to Hydrogel’s cooling and calming properties. It can also be applied on the face prior to skin care because of the fatty acids it contains. These work as an excellent delivery system for all of the active ingredients. In other words, it helps bring the nourishing components of your cleanser, moisturizer, and other products you use deep into the epidermis.
Our male clients use Hydrogel as an after shaving gel. It contains an active plant extract called Bisabolol that’s derived primarily from German Chamomile. This is an anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing substance that helps to relieve sensitive skin.
If you suffer from sunburn, blemishes, dry, or irritated skin, the Allantoin in this product helps stimulate the cellular renewal and healing process. This is another active ingredient that originates from Comfrey Root. The Geranium essential oil is also used as a healing antiseptic that soothes blemishes and revitalizes dry skin.
Most cleansers and soaps are alkaline, which often irritate the skin and partially neutralize the action of Glycolic Acid (AHA). The Pro-Derm Gentle Cleanser has a optimal PH of 4.5., so it maintains the skin’s protective acid mantle. It also contains 40% certified BIO Aloe that helps to soften and heal the skin. This natural anti-stress for the epidermis is recommended for couperosis, sensitive, or dry and delicate skin.
You probably know lavender for its calming, soothing scent, and the same can be applied to what it does for the skin. Gentle Cleanser has certified organic lavender that acts as a healing, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory. It naturally has relaxing, soothing, and calming properties making it wonderful for any skin type. We highly recommend the Gentle Cleanser for those who suffer from delicate, dry, flask, congested, acne-prone and red-prone skin.
As you can see, Hydrogel and Gentle Cleanser are suitable for any skin type and condition. We can’t stress how important it is to do your research before you buy a product, no matter what the price point is. Just because a skin care item is expensive doesn’t mean it’s going to be good for you, so make sure you’re choosing the right products for your skin’s needs. If you need some guidance, we’re happy to help!
