What Is A "Moisture Sandwich" & How To Create Your Own Recipe
We are used to hearing buzz words and fun phrases within the beauty industry, like, remember slugging? Even contouring was a new concept not that long ago! You can always rely on the ever-adapting world of skincare and make-up to have something fresh and fun up its sleeve. A ‘moisture sandwich’ is one of the latest techniques for achieving gorgeous, hydrated skin, so we wanted to break down how to master this recent culinary-inspired tactic.
So get ready... It’s time to glow!
Like any delicious sandwich, it is all about quality ingredients that are carefully layered to ensure a scrumptious result. By following a few simple steps (or recipe), anyone can master this one! The aim is to apply your products to damp skin and lips from thinnest consistency to thickest - think of spreading your bread with butter before getting to the more substantial fillers. The reason for this is to naturally reduce transepidermal water loss by trapping hydration between each coating, and yes, this is the one time we can tolerate the word moist!
“A recipe for glowing skin...”
For super soft, irresistible lips, begin by dampening them with a small amount of fresh filtered water, then use a generous helping of your favourite balm or moisturiser. The Province Apothecary Hydrating Rescue Balm does precisely what it says on the tin and is essential for keeping any cracked, chapped or dry lips at bay. As your lips are already moist from the water, the balm will penetrate the deeper layers rather than just sitting on the surface level, ensuring a thorough, more effective coating of hydration that will last longer too. Follow this with a bountiful coating of our best-selling Grown Alchemist Lip Repair, packed with collagen-producing tri-peptides and soothing African butter tree extract that work to stop any moisture loss. The subtle tint cleverly matches your skin tone and adds volume whilst softening lines for a fuller-looking, perfect pout!
