Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer, a Stress-Relieving Moisturizer?


{Chanel Azure on the nails!}

Stress is the new norm. It’s all about how you manage it, right? I balance my crazy by drinking lots of water and getting my daily giggle on. Seriously, when neither happens, stress creeps and shows on skin.  Somehow, I even managed to avoid getting a cold this year when everyone I knew was down and out with that nasty flu. (Cue knocking on wood.) I’m sure I don’t have to remind you of the havoc stress can wreak on skin. It’s no joke how puffiness, redness, dullness, blotchiness and fatigue just takes over. The “you look tired” is the worst thing you can hear.  And it’s not just superficial, but over time the effects of stress weaken the skin barrier and causes premature aging. Which, honestly, is stressful just to think about. A vicious circle that Kiehl’s is hoping to disrupt.

The OG apothecary just released the Skin Rescuer, a lightweight moisturizer with a formula specifically designed to limit the release of stress signals to skin. How exactly? Extracts from the petals of the Rosa Gallica flower minimize inflammation and mannose, a rare sugar, helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier. Plus a side of shea butter, squalane and blend of ceramides. I tell ya, I like everything about the Skin Rescuer. It’s intended to be layered over a serum and is light enough to layer another moisturizer on top. But, no worries if you want to trim a step because this can double as a moisturizer. And, this one is totally dude-approved, too. If you’re up for sharing, this could be one to let your man steal.
