Neutrogena® Canada launches new gel creams to quench and soothe dry and sensitive skin


Many individuals interchangeably use the terms “dry” and “dehydrated” when describing their skin concerns, contributing to a widespread misconception.

  • Dry skin is a skin type characterized by a lack of natural oils, leading to roughness and flakiness.
  • Dehydrated skin is a condition resulting from insufficient water levels, manifesting as tightness, dullness, and fine lines. Understanding this crucial difference is pivotal for an effective skincare routine.

Hydration is crucial for maintaining healthy skin, and both dry and dehydrated skin can benefit from adequate moisture. However, it’s important to understand the differences between dry and dehydrated skin to address their specific needs.

  • For dry skin, the primary focus is moisturization instead of hydration. Using emollients and occlusive agents in skincare products can help lock in moisture and prevent water loss. Look for products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and oils to nourish and replenish the skin’s lipid barrier.
  • For dehydrated skin, hydration is key. Using water-based products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and glycerin can help attract and retain water in the skin. Additionally, increasing water intake from within by staying hydrated is crucial for addressing dehydration.

“Hyaluronic Acid (sometimes referred to as HA) helps retain moisture, making it one of the most effective ingredients for hydrating skin. When applied, it creates a protective barrier, helping to retain moisture and improve skin texture,” said Katie Beleznay, board-certified Dermatologist.

This year, Neutrogena® Canada has introduced two NEW additions to its Hydro Boost collection to help Canadians instantly quench and soothe dry and sensitive skin while intensely moisturizing it. This new range expands the beloved Hydro Boost Face line, known for its skin moisture barrier protecting properties. The products are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a dermatologist-recommended hydrator that binds to water and hold it within the skin’s surface.

Here’s how each product in the new Neutrogena® Hydro Boost line-up can provide effective solutions for every skin type:
