The Esthetician’s Guide to Skin Flooding

Skin flooding is an intense, water-quenching routine that dramatically boosts skin’s hydration – “flooding” it with essential moisture so it’s soft, clear and healthy. The process is all about layering the right products in the right order, thinnest to thickest.

Layer 1: Toner

After cleansing, mist skin with microdroplets of hydration. Bioelements Equalizer is a great choice, as each droplet is packed with softening ylang ylang, plus strengthening and balancing adaptogenic herbs.

Layer 2: Hyaluronic Acid

Next, level up hydration with a layer of Bioelements Moisture x10. its potent hyaluronic acid formula retains up to 1000 times its weight in water, and binds that water to your skin’s surface layers.

Layer 3: Niacinamide

Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) helps increase skin’s lipids to moisturize deep. Bioelements VC10 nightly bright is a perfect choice here – and you’ll also get the added brightening benefits of 10% vitamin C.

Layer 4: Moisturizer

The last layer locks in the all the hydration below. try Bioelements Barrier Fix Daily Hydrator – its silver ear mushroom is designed to push comforting hydration deep into skin, while it restores barrier damage.
