HydroPeptide's Gentle Rejuvenating Blueberry Peel and Nourishing Recovery Blueberry Mask Debut in Julie Michaud Prettyology's "Om" Facial for Sensitive and Distressed Skin

July 10, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Boston, MA. Saying "om" is not only for yoga enthusiasts anymore, discerning guests of Julie Michaud Prettyology are seeking to soothe their skin with the swanky beauty lab's new "Om" Facial, featuring HydroPeptide's new blueberry-infused treatments designed to deliver superior anti-aging and anti-redness results. The leading cosmeceutical line combines blueberry as a super antioxidant with a new defense-strengthening globularia stem cell, calming and redness-reducing peptides, Bentonite clay and mandelic acid in their formulations of the new Gentle Rejuvenating Blueberry Peel and Nourishing Recovery Blueberry Mask.

  • Blueberry extract contributes to an extravagant aromatherapy experience while protecting skin from free radical damage and stabilizing the collagen matrix.
  • Palmitoyl Tripeptide-8 neutralizes redness, prevents and soothes skin to a normal skin sensitivity threshold and lightly hydrates by addressing the root causes of irritation and inflammation.
  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-37 restores skin's barrier function to help maintain adequate and youthful hydration while activating skin protein rejuvenation.
  • Globularia Cordifolia, a botanical stem cell derived from the blue leather leaf powder puff, is engineered to minimize redness and promote a more even skin tone by counteracting pro-aging agents and inflammation.

  • HydroPeptide incorporates Mandelic acid for its gentle yet effective action within the Gentle Rejuvenating Blueberry Peel, revealing a smooth and uniform skin tone by speeding up cell renewal and lightening discoloration. The Nourishing Recovery Blueberry Mask immediately comforts and renews skin after application of this gentle peel with the same proprietary stem cell, peptide and nourishing extract blend, but with the addition of Bentonite clay to absorb oil and extract impurities for a clearer, matte-finish complexion.

    "Until recently, those with sensitive skin weren't able to benefit from Alpha Hydroxy Acids because of their tendency to be harsh on skin," said April Zangl, HydroPeptide's CEO and co-formulator. "We chose Mandelic acid for our new Gentle Rejuvenating Blueberry Peel as it has been newly rediscovered for its unique ability to target a number of different skin care issues, including repairing skin damaged by prolonged sun exposure, combating hyperpigmentation and treating acne, without the irritation that results from use of other AHAs. The treatment finishes with an application of HydroPeptide Uplift, an eye gel featuring Argan extract to fight crepiness and Soothing Serum, a serum containing the new redness-reducing anti-wrinkle peptide, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-33. We are delighted to partner with Julie Michaud Prettyology to offer their sensitive skinned clientele an option that leaves their skin looking and behaving closer to the way normal skin does after an "Om" Facial."

    "HydroPeptide is a leader in anti-aging skincare and we are thrilled to be the first in Boston to carry their skincare line and offer their skin treatments," says Julie Michaud, owner of Julie Michaud Prettyology.
