It’s a sad fact of life for us that our skin tends to be dry (blame our Irish heritage), even in summer. So we were totally able to relate when P&G scientist Lesley Bride shared her dry skin woes over lunch last week: She has a pool at her Ohio home and getting in and out of the water for those cooling dips leaves her shins and calves looking scaly. Ah yes, the crocodile look. We know it well!
Lesley went on to explain that the reason the P&G products are so effective at moisturizing is because they draw the water from your skin’s deepest layers (where it is the most moisturized) out to the surface (where it is the driest). Lesley swears by the Olay Ribbons Body Wash, which was recently reformulated. As soon as we make it to the drug store, we’ll give it a try.
While the idea of “Aquacurrent Science” is a little challenging to grasp, the products are an undeniable hit with Total Beauty users. The Covergirl Smoothers Pressed Powder scores an average of 9 out of 10 and the Olay Quench Body Lotion earns an 8. Pretty damn good for drugstore brands. Look for the Aquacurrent Science label on products from Olay, Covergirl, Secret and Pantene.
