AHC Premium Ex Hydra B5 Line
Did you know that the key to maintaining fresh, youthful and dewy skin is as simple as keeping it hydrated? By ensuring your skin remains hydrated throughout the day, it provides your skin with a multitude of satisfying benefits from fresh-looking makeup, smooth and wrinkle-free complexion, as well as supple and plump looking complexion staring back at you in the mirror! Aside from that, what if we told you that this can be achieved with one of AHC’s popular skincare lines? Yes, you guessed it - the Premium Ex Hydra B5 Line!
AHC Hydra B5 is formulated with Vitamin B5 or Panthenol that has excellent moisture retention abilities, when coupled with Hyaluronic acid the synergistic anti-aging benefits improves the your skin barrier to prevent moisture loss. This may come as a surprise to you but panthenol and hyaluronic acid Korean skincare products can help illuminate tired skin by reviving tired skin. More often than not, dull-looking skin is caused by lack of hydration and moisture.
Start your skincare routine with a soothing facial cleanser to remove any impurities and unclog pores, with AHC Premium Ex Hydra B5 Soothing Foam. Unlike conventional cleansers that leave your face feeling tight and dehydrated, this cleanser will supercharge your skin with ample hydration and lock it in to prevent feelings of tightness!
After cleansing, it is normal for some moisture loss to occur which is why toners come in this step to replenish it. Toners are often underestimated as being a skincare step that is not necessary, but we are certain that you’ll probably not want to skip toners ever again because your skin will feel and look different. Apply a generous layer of AHC Premium Ex Hydra B5 Toner using your hands or a cotton pad and lightly tap to aid absorption. Your skin should feel soothed, hydrated and quenched with a refreshing ‘drink’! Next, follow with a facial serum of your choice.
Finally, wrap up your skincare routine with a lightweight moisturiser like AHC Premium Ex Hydra B5 Emulsion! Formulated with 7 different botanical complex and advanced Liposome technology, this emulsion helps fade fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Perfect for day time or night time use, you can even use this to prep your skin before makeup application to give your skin a smooth and flawless base.
