Neutrogena Hydro Boost

Improved formula, even more hydration

Surely everyone has heard of hyaluronic acid before. But what is it exactly and why is it good to incorporate it into your skincare routine? What other ingredients can contribute to hydrated skin? In this article, we have gathered the important information.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring element in the skin, capable of holding 1000 times its weight in water, thus ensuring the skin’s natural hydration.

How does it work?
Its complex formula binds and retains moisture, releasing it when the skin needs it most. It replenishes the skin from within, helping to maintain its elasticity. Some moisturizers continually lose their moisturizing abilities due to evaporation, stress, and other factors. The renewed Hydro Boost moisturizers store moisture directly in the cells, providing immediate hydration to the skin at the right time – for up to 72 hours. Compared to the previous formula, our facial creams now contain +20% more hyaluronic acid, ensuring long-lasting effective hydration and a stronger skin barrier.

Did you know?
Using products with hyaluronic acid is not only beneficial in skincare but also in facial cleansers! You can increase your skin’s hydration during cleansing with the innovative, lightweight Neutrogena Hydro Boost hydrating cleansing gel. It effectively removes makeup residues and impurities while moisturizing the skin, leaving it feeling clean and soft.

Amino Acids
Amino acids are essential for the proper functioning of our bodies. There are many types of amino acids, some produced by the body, while others need to be obtained through diet. Amino acids found in the skin contribute to the formation of structural proteins like collagen and elastin, influencing the skin’s appearance and texture. They also support hydration by absorbing water in the skin, preventing its evaporation. In addition to enhancing hydration, amino acids build and strengthen the skin’s surface.

Electrolytes are minerals that, when in contact with water in the body, create electrical charges, supporting functions such as brain activity and movement. When applied to the skin, they are highly beneficial as well, as they stimulate cell activity, enhancing the absorption of ingredients, increasing skin hydration levels, and promoting collagen production.

The revamped Neutrogena Hydro Boost formula, alongside +20% more hyaluronic acid, contains amino acids and electrolytes, clinically proven to provide an immediate 6x boost in hydration compared to untreated skin. This results in an 80% stronger skin barrier and 72 hours of continuous hydration.
