We are excited to bring you a new product from Dermalogica, the Circular Hydration Serum. Kick-start skin’s hydration cycle with this long-lasting serum that immediately floods skin with hydration, replenishes from within, and helps prevent future hydration evaporation. We caught up with Dermalogica’s Education Manager Victoria Evans to find out more.
Hello Victoria, what can you tell us about the new Circular Hydration Serum?
Circular Hydration Serum is a new way to hydrate your skin and achieve healthy radiant skin. Many of us are aware of the benefits of using a Hyaluronic Acid serum, however, due to skin’s hydration cycle, moisture is constantly lost through the skin’s surface layers to the atmosphere.
The hydration that we apply to plump and smooth our skin is often being lost via evaporation. Circular Hydration Serum works differently to your typical hydrating serum by not only delivering hydration but by locking it in and stimulating hydration from within.
Hydrating serums address dehydration, does this condition affect all skins?
Yes! As a professional skin therapist, I vary rarely see a skin without some degree of dehydration. It affects all skin types and ages, even oily skins. One of the hallmarks of dehydrated skin is a tight, dry feeling – particularly after cleansing.
Dehydrated skin will often also present as visible flakiness with fine, crepey lines. Oiliness can also be a sign of dehydration: when skin lacks adequate water, it may over-produce sebum (oil) in an attempt to compensate for the lack of hydration. This presents as oiliness and possible congestion along with a dry or flaky-looking appearance.
Circular Hydration Serum replaces Skin Hydrating Booster. What’s the difference?
Skin Hydrating Booster was an excellent formula for combating dehydrated skin. The innovative ingredient technologies in Circular Hydration Serum, however, take hydration to a new level – delivering immediate hydration while also nourishing the skin to help prevent future dehydration. Circular Hydration Serum is an evolution of Skin Hydrating Booster providing the latest in skin hydration technology to advance skin’s hydration cycle.

Circular Hydration Serum works in 3 ways to deeply hydrate the skin:Locks in hydration and promotes barrier protection
Includes ingredients that help minimise water evaporation from the surface of the skin and delivers quick and long-lasting hydration such as high molecular weight Polyglutamic Acid, Algae Extract-infused moisturising matrix, and Hydrolysed Rice Protein. In addition, Lactobacillus Ferment + Avena (Oat) Extract helps balance skin’s microbiome.
To replenish the skin with moisture, a blend of moisturising Amino Acid molecules similar to skin’s Natural Moisturising Factor attract and bind water on skin’s surface plus Hyaluronic Acid with organic Silicium easily penetrates the skin, delivering Hyaluronic Acid into deeper layers for radiant skin.
To stimulate our own moisturising molecules within the skin, low molecular weight Polyglutamic Acid from fermented soybean, improves water reserves by stimulating the production of Hyaluronic Acid and Natural Moisturising Factors to enhance skin thickness and help firm the skin. Combined with plant-derived sugars that stimulate Hyaluronic Acid and production of glycosaminoglycans to help improve skin’s water reserves for long-lasting hydration.
