Myth: Facial Slugging. A Trend – Do or Don’t?

Has your skin been super dry lately? A recent trend shows that consumers apply Vaseline or a type of grease on their face at night and keep it on as they sleep to retain skin moisture. Dr. Lancer suggests staying away from this habit as it’s not only messy (you’re sure to roll around at night and get it on your pillows and sheets), but Vaseline also retains heat. Retaining heat congests pores, giving you blemishes and irritating the skin.

To keep skin moisturized and balanced, Dr. Lancer recommends using these Lancer favorites:

  • The Method: Nourish Normal-Combination Skin – This daily moisturizer is used to hydrate the skin while providing anti-aging benefits. Nourish contains Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid to firm, lift and smooth fine lines and wrinkles, while Avocado and Olive Fruit Oils boost hydration and moisture-retention. Skin should appear well hydrated, glowing and plump after use.
  • Omega Hydrating Oil – The best extra boost of hydration in a bottle. This lightweight, non-greasy oil delivers essential hydration and antioxidants to the skin with its perfect blend of ingredients. It contains fermented oils including Argan, Olive, Jojoba and Grapeseed as well as Omega Fatty Acids, which improve skin elasticity and suppleness. Turmeric, another important ingredient, also reduces any skin redness while Chlorophyllin-Cooper Complex improves skin texture and pore size.
  • Nourish Rehydration Mask – This effective, hydrating mask is a New Beauty Award 2021 Winner. The mask contains Bio-Peptide & Vitamin B3 and is used to hydrate and revive dull, dehydrated skin. The ingredients not only boost hydration, but also prevent moisture loss, keeping skin smooth with a healthy, glowing complexion.
  • Intensive Night Treatment – This luxurious, rich cream is an anti-aging treatment and moisturizer combined. It’s intended for evening use and contains ultra-hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Marula Oil and Shea Butter. The ingredients help skin retain hydration while firming and lifting the skin with Peptides and Amino Acids. Intensive Night Treatment helps skin feel plump, smooth and lifted, with a new sense of firmness.
