Tight, dry skin doesn't feel good. A shift in seasons, spending more time outdoors or stripping cleansers could be the cause. The solution? Giving the skin what it wants, more moisture.
Revive dry skin with Graydon, a local, Toronto skincare brand with three nourishing face creams paving the path to feel good skin.
Let's skip to the good part, each Graydon face cream is expertly formulated for sensitive and reactive skin. All Graydon products are also dermatologist and clinically tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating and made without added fragrance or essential oils.
If you're unsure about how your skin will respond to a new skincare product, we encourage you to ask us for a sample to try at home so you can be confident in trying something new. Skincare should be fun!
Before we dive in, here's a HH tip that will take your creams to the next level: make sure to apply moisturizers to a damp face. This can be right after your toner/essence or cleansing.
"I’ve been recommending Graydon moisturizers a lot lately as days are getting colder and folks are finding their skin seasonally reactive and in need of extra moisture." —Mary, HH Retail Team
BOTANICAL CERAMIDE. VITAMIN C FROM ROSEHIP EXTRACT. MINERAL RICH MAPLE SAP.
FEELS: Light and oh, so gentle.
FOR: Skin that reacts to everything.
Skin stuff contains some of our fave barrier support botanical oils in a lightweight formulation. Rosehip seed oil and extract are like a multivitamin for the skin providing a gentle dose of vitamin C, while omega-rich pomegranate seed oil provides incredible barrier support.
This lotion has a slight satin finish and the maple sap water gives it a subtle sweet scent.
"I see the effects of Skin Stuff right away—my skin appears plump and bouncy. It doesn't have a strong smell, which I appreciate for the daytime. I'd recommend this for anyone with more reactive skin." Melissa, 26, oily and super-sensitive skin.
VEGAN PROBIOTICS. BLUE-GREEN ALGAE. ANTIOXIDANT RICH BLUEBERRY SEED OIL.
FEELS: Like a heavy, nourishing night cream.
FOR: Dry, flaky skin and well suited for eczema, psoriasis and acne-prone skin.
Berry Rich is a thick cream with a matte finish. We love its pretty pale blue colour and subtle cocoa vanilla smell—all from the natural ingredients. This formula features the rare ingredient, blueberry seed oil which is loaded with antioxidants as well as blue-green algae, making it an ideal choice for dehydrated skin.
COLLODIAL OATMEAL. MANUKA HONEY. CARROT SEED OIL.
FEELS: Ultra-rich and heavy.
FOR: Skin that resembles the desert sand, think dry, red and irritated.
Putty is packed with some of the best ingredients for reactive skin: gluten-free colloidal oatmeal, Manuka honey and zinc, as well as skin-loving carrot seed oil.
Formulated in a rich cream texture with a matte finish and no discernible scent this is a good choice for calming and protecting skin that needs saving.
