You've just done a carefully curated, multi-step bespoke skincare treatment. After all that hard work, it would be a shame if your skin only absorbed a fraction of the active ingredients in your skincare products. But sadly this is a common reality. Enter Skin Slugging!
Slugging skincare is a skincare application technique that uses an "occlusive" as the last step in a skincare routine to create a protective "slug-like" sheen. (We love a goo moment.)
What is an occlusive you ask? Occlusives form a protective barrier layer on the skin's surface, sealing in moisture and creating a shield that not only prevents hydration loss but also defends your skin from external irritants.
If you frequently wake up with dry, parched skin, adding a slugging skin care step to your routine could be the key to a newer, dewier complexion.
Everyone has their own unique skin, so there's never going to be a one-size-fits-all solution for any skin routine. However, slugging skin can be extremely beneficial, especially for people dealing with very dry or dehydrated skin. Skin slugging specifically targets moisture retention. Using a robust occlusive moisturizer, like Eight Saints Night Shift Hydration Gel, creates a protective barrier on the skin's surface, which can be ultra helpful in harsh or dry climates.
However, whether slugging is good for your skin depends on your individual skin type and needs. It may not be suitable for absolutely everyone, and there are some potential issues to consider:
At Eight Saints, our natural product line features a stellar super hydrating gel that is the perfect complement to almost any nighttime skin care routine: Night Shift Hydration Gel. This peptide-rich anti-aging gel moisturizer not only looks and sounds cool, but feels cooly amazing when applied. It's an all-over face moisturizer that is comfortable like a cream but powerful like a specialized serum.
What separates Night Shift Hydration Gel from other nighttime skincare products is the feel and undeniable results. Say bye to heavy and greasy creams because this gel moisturizer offers an intense surge of hydration without any of the sticky feel - all while actively stimulating collagen production to reduce fine lines and enhance your skin's overall appearance.
Plus, Night Shift’s lightweight nature makes it the perfect addition to your skin-slugging routine, allowing you to layer it with other products for a total skin hydration experience.
Night Shift Hydration Gel has a few key ingredients that make it a superstar for skin slugging:
If you're feeling a bit apprehensive about trying skin slugging, it's always a good idea to consult with a dermatologist or skin care professional. They'll help you determine if it's the right approach for your skin type and your individual concerns. When you’re ready to start skin slugging, just make sure you’re armed with a fresh jar of Night Shift Hydration Face Gel. Bye bye dry skin!
