A super hydrating gel toner for all skin types; made with sensitive skin in mind.
Often a moisturizer isn’t enough to hydrate unbalanced skin! Why? Because your skin needs a combination of water and oils to stay balanced and keep its acid mantle intact (moisturizers typically only provide the oil portion of the equation). The skin’s acid mantle is your body's natural, protective layer of sebum. Without it, your skin is open to damage, dehydration, and oil imbalance.
Hydra Healing Gel provides the water part of the balanced skin equation. The ingredients in it are 1000 times more hydrating than water alone, and they easily absorb into the layers of your skin!
If you think dehydration is the cause of your skin concerns, and you want to infuse a mega dose of hydration into your skin, the Hydra Healing Skin Rescue Gel is your new go-to product!

The Hydra Healing Skin Rescue Gel doesn’t just stop at hydration! It has loads of additional balancing and repairing benefits thanks to its arsenal of skin-supporting ingredients! Some of the benefits that this gel provides with continued use include:
- Mild hyperpigmentation and discolouration are reduced and/or eliminated (including leftover discolouration from recent acne breakouts)
- Willow bark extract naturally and gently helps refine pores by relaxing them so they appear less obvious, reducing sebum (oil) production from topical triggers, and improving skin texture - all while nurturing and soothing your skin.
- Packed with high levels of antioxidants to help protect your skin against free radical damage and signs of ageing (including quercetin which calms & balances the skin, caffeic acids, which are healing & anti-inflammatory, and tannins which soothe irritated skin, shrink swollen tissues, and help gently exfoliate the skin to smooth out the texture.
- Packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, and polysaccharides including iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Polysaccharides provide up to 1000x their weight in hydration/water-based moisture and are responsible for hydrating the skin.
- Every ingredient provides soothing, healing, and calming effects.

How to Use
- Simply use it after washing your face and before applying any mists, serums or moisturizers.
- After applying the gel, apply a moisturizer or a serum to lock in the hydrating ingredients.
- Hydra Healing Skin Rescue Gel absorbs fast and can be worked into your AM or PM routine.
- Applying a lot of the gel will create a "mask" effect without trying. To some, this makes their skin feel "tight" - this is just the gel sitting on top of the skin and not absorbing thoroughly.
- To remedy this, mix the Gel with your moisturizer or serum (about 1/3 gel, 2/3 moisturizer or serum) in your hand before applying. This allows the gel's hydrating properties to blend with your moisturizer or serum so your skin can absorb it at a pace that allows all the gel to be absorbed (i.e. no mask effect!)
Extra Tip: How to use your Hydra Healing Gel as a mask
- Apply a thick layer of the gel after washing your face.
- Leave on until it’s fully dry.
- Wash off with lukewarm water.

Licorice Root can help regulate the skin’s oil production for those suffering from oily skin.
- Rose Hydrosol: This floral water isn’t new to the skincare world. It’s been used for years thanks to its ability to help regulate our skin’s oils.
