Intense Recovery Cream
Clinically proven, comforting cream for super stressed-out skin reduces the visible signs of stress-induced aging and redness.
- Microalgae extract smooths the look of facial tension and stress lines
- Deeply moisturises even severely dry skin as it relieves visible redness & encourages recovery
Did you know all sorts of things can wreak havoc on your skin—hormonal changes, aggressive beauty routines…not to mention psychological stress and fatigue? The result is seriously stressed-out skin that’s extremely dry, irritated, red, and out of balance.
Dr. Murad has been studying the stressful impacts of the environment, nutrition, and lifestyle on skin and overall wellness since 1972. That’s why he formulated Intense Recovery Cream, "our most luxurious moisturizer to date, customized with ingredients to offset symptoms of skin stress and boost skin's resilience so it comes back stronger.” – Howard Murad, M.D.
