1.  Use a Stem Cell Moisturizer
Using a stem cell moisturizer, such as Rich & Loving It from Pure MD, repairs dry, damaged skin.  Peptide technology acts to rebuild the cutaneous matrix by stimulating biosynthesis and fibroblast proliferation.  It is an excellent moisturizer for those with intense dryness.
2.  Use a Hydrating and Calming Mask
Use a refreshing, hydrating gel mask dense with antioxidants and healing properties essential for calming red, irritated, and rosacea-prone skin. Antioxidant Delight from Pure MD provides potent antioxidant, astringent and anti-inflammatory benefits. These masks are excellent for dehydrated skin or post sun exposure.
3.   Use a Hydrating Toner
Use a hydrating, anti-aging toner that boosts skin moisture levels and helps skin maintain pH balance.  Youth Fusion from Pure MD is excellent for dry skin or delicate skin in the recovery phase following an intense exfoliating treatment.
