Did you know Asian skin is more prone to moisture loss? But don’t worry – LANEIGE Water Bank creams are here to rescue your skin.
Hands up if you’ve gone on a winter holiday before and came back with skin that’s drier than the Sahara. What’s worse is that the locals in the country you’re visiting look perfectly fine, and yet there you are with your flaky face.
The bad news is that according to Journal of Dermatological Science, Asian skin is more prone to moisture loss because we have a weaker skin barrier compared to our Western counterparts. This also means our skin is more easily damaged, which totally justifies our multi-step skincare routines.
Needless to say, we all need a good moisturiser. And one that we can bank on? The creams from the LANEIGE Water Bank range, which are reformulated to give you eight times more moisturising power compared to the previous version. This upgraded version comes with mini-hyaluronate, which allows for quicker and deeper absorption thanks to the smaller particles. This ultra-hydrating ingredient reaches into the epidermal layer, working from the inside out to extend your skin’s natural moisture retention abilities. To help you get even more hydration from its surroundings, the formula also uses an Air-wetting technology to bind moisture to your skin, keeping it supple for longer.
And because LANEIGE understands that Asian women are more prone to dehydrated skin, they’ve also included a Biogene technology that’ll improve the quality of your skin barrier by reviving your dormant moisturising genes. That way, your skin will be able to keep itself hydrated round the clock.
