Lotty Somers recommends: Best for Dry Skin
pellamex combines nature and cutting-edge science to maintain a healthy skin barrier and repair irritated skin. It includes the key, active ingredient, l-histidine – a natural amino acid that acts as a key building block for filaggrin, a crucial skin barrier protein that gets broken down into natural moisturising factor in the epidermis, ultimately hydrating the skin from the inside, within pellamex’s patented formula, combining other key EFSA-approved skin nutrients such as zinc, biotin, vitamins B2, B3 and E to relieve and restore dry, sensitive, and irritated skin.
