Finally, it's time to lock the moisture in the skin, much like the method of 'slugging' . For this step, a rich and moisturizing cream is applied to the skin. This helps prevent water loss from the skin, but instead of locking in moisture with substances such as Vaseline – as is often done when 'slugging' is involved – the 'glazed doughnut' method uses moisturizers and facial oils instead. This can enhance the efficacy of actives such as retinol, acids, and vitamin C, so it is usually not recommended to use these ingredients alongside 'slugging'.
For some skin types, heavy moisturizers or oils can cause skin irritations. Therefore, it is important that everyone keeps the condition of their skin in mind before choosing a skin product.
We especially recommend our face creams; EGF Power Cream and Hydrating Cream, for this vital step towards ‚Glazed Doughnut Skin‘. The EGF Power Cream is a nourishing face cream suitable for all skin types, but especially developed for mature or dry skin. On the other hand, our Hydrating Cream is light and oil-free, making it ideal for those with normal, combination, or oily skin, or those who simply prefer lighter formulas.
