DermaMedics overnight repair cream

What is the DermaMedics’ Overnight Repair Cream?

Even with daily use of moisturizing facial lotions, over time your skin can still experience areas of dryness, resulting in scaliness, discoloration and the increased appearance of wrinkles. Overnight Repair Cream is formulated specifically to rapidly replenish lost oils and lipids to the skin and to restore a radiant and smooth appearance to the face. At the same time, this unique formulation helps reduce water loss. Overnight Repair Cream is designed for use on wrinkled, weathered and discolored areas and on severely dry and weathered areas of the face. Although formulated with high concentrations of both skin-friendly oils and shea butter, Overnight Repair Cream still absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves no "sticky" or "tacky" film behind. This re-hydrating cream contains Therosol®II, a patent-pending blend of two antioxidant phytochemicals that help improve texture and reduce visible skin redness.  Overnight Repair Cream is gentle enough to use on any area of dry skin and as often as needed.

 

How do I use Overnight Repair Cream?

After cleansing skin with the Foaming Facial Cleanser, apply to dry, wrinkled and weathered areas of the face to combat dryness, uneven skin tone and rough texture. Because of the enhanced moisturizing properties of Overnight Repair Cream, it should be used on extremely dry areas of the face. Overnight Repair Cream may be used by itself or together with Restorative Serum. However, if both products are to be used on the same area of skin, Restorative Serum should be applied first and allowed to absorb completely before applying Overnight Repair Cream. For best results, use Overnight Repair Cream at least 3 times a week to restore softness to weathered skin. It is gentle enough to apply as often as necessary to soften and moisturize damaged skin. As with any skin care product, discontinue use if irritation develops.

 

Are there any concerns I should know about regarding the use of Overnight Repair Cream?

No Sunscreen

Overnight Repair Cream does not contain any sunscreen. Therefore, if the product is going to be applied in the morning before going outside, we recommend that either a lightly moisturizing lotion with an SPF of 15 or makeup that contains a sunscreen be applied to any areas of skin that will be exposed to the sun. Allow the Overnight Repair Cream to completely absorb before applying the sunscreen.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter is known for its excellent properties as a moisturizer and emollient. It has also been widely studied for many years for its beneficial effects when applied to the skin at concetrations of 10% or higher. Overnight Repair Cream contains 12% Shea Butter. Numberous reports suggest that Shea Butter can help fade the appearance of uneven skin tone and visibly improve skin texture. Shea Butter absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.

Glycerin

This excellent humectant absorbs and retains moisture in the skin. It is extremely mild when applied topically, and can be used at high concentrations.

Jojoba Oil

This oil is prepared from the seed of the jojoba plant and, unlike many natural oils, is chemically similar to the oil produced by sebaceous glands of the skin. It is a superior moisturizing emollient, which helps soften and smooth skin. Jojoba oil is so gentle and pure that it can be applied to cracked and damaged skin to help moisturize and restore the skin’s barrier.

Therosol® (4-propyl guaiacol)

Therosol® is a proprietary and patent-pending botanical antioxidant.

Stearic Acid

This naturally occurring 18 carbon fatty acid is found in vegetable oils. It is widely used in many cosmetic products as an emollient, emulsifier and lubricant. Because of its gentleness to the skin, it is used at concentrations up to 25%.

Cetyl Palmitate

This emollient also acts as a skin conditioner, helping to restore weathered and damaged skin to its natural state.

Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, and Cetearyl Alcohol

These non-irritating emulsifiers allow the oil and water phases of the lotion to mix evenly and form a stable emulsion. They are also emollients and moisturizers.

Dimethyl Isosorbide

Dimethyl Isosorbide is a safe, non-irritating cosmetic ingredient that serves as both a skin emollient and a skin penetration enhancer.
