CHALLENGE

Impaired + weakened skin can be temporary or ongoing. It is often the result of a depleted protective barrier that causes increased water loss from skin and enables environmental irritants to enter skin + cause redness. It exhibits symptoms such as dryness, redness, rough texture and exacerbated signs of aging.

SOLUTION

Renewal + Recovery Crèmes are ZO’s functional hydrators uniquely engineered to restore natural skin hydration and to support the protective barrier for increased skin tolerance. Their benefits include calm, supple, hydrated and soft skin that is visibly refortified.
