ZO Skin Health Ossential Daily Power Defense
The aim behind this lightweight serum is to lessen fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration, while healing sun damage, increasing moisture as well as bolstering thinning skin.
It contains DNA Repair Enzymes that attatch to your own DNA molecules to help repair oxidative stress caused by UV exposure and uneven pigmentation, while antioxidants and time release retinol help restore skin function and elasticity.
When I spoke with @skin_by_shea , the loveliest ZO skin specialist, she described the product as "The Daily Power Defense is one of our "hero" products. It's your five-in-one. It strengthens the skin, improves barrier function, stabilises the dermis, nourishes the cells with DNA repairing enzymes and it includes retinol. It's amazing and will truly change your skin".
Like all of the ZO products, the packaging is fantastic. This 1oz travel size comes in a super air tight pump and I use 2 pumps for the whole face.
I've been using this daily for going on 4 weeks now and the results are nothing short of amazing. I think Shea is right, it's changing my skin.
I can't pinpoint which product is doing the most work out of all the ZO products I'm using, as I believe together they are complementing each other phenomenally well, but this product is a workhorse for sure.
I've never used retinol both night and day, so that took some getting used to at the very beginning, but nothing drastic. SPF is a must like never ever before.
Once I got over the initial hurdle of (mild) peeling and the new skin began to come through, I saw barely there pores, skin beginning to tighten and firm, and the skin tone appears much more even. I'm super excited to see what else these products can do over time!
