What Is Slugging?

what is slugging?
Slugging is the process of applying an occlusive product (in this case oils and waxes) to form a physical layer on your skin.

This helps improve the skin barrier function and prevent trans-epidermal water loss. Adding an occlusive to your skincare routine can be particularly beneficial for those with dry, dehydrated, sun damaged or injured skin.

As a protective agent they can also prevent irritation from environmental stressors such as wind and pollen.

Applying an occlusive, aka slugging, is often done as a final skincare step before bed but is perfect for day time use especially in cold or dry climates.

While occlusives prevent moisture loss they aren’t necessarily humectants themselves so you’ll need to first treat your skin to a hydrating step.

We recommend a generous misting of REFRESH mineral mist followed by RENEW serum. If you like you can also apply a face oil prior to slugging for additional nourishment. Finally apply SMOOTH or NURTURE balms liberally to seal everything in.

NURTURE is for everyone, including those with the most sensitive skin. If you need a more medicinal treatment - ie in the case of eczema, psoriasis, burn or rash - we recommend SMOOTH. They can also be layered or used in sequence to heal and repair damage and it’s associated hyperpigmentation.
