Meet Lab Series Global Ambassador: Calvyn Justus

No one knows the importance of hydration like new LAB SERIES Global Ambassador Calvyn Justus. As an Olympic swimmer, he demands extreme performance to stay at the top of his game and looking his best.

You can’t reach gold medal status when you’re running on empty and neither can your skin. Factors like diet, climate, environment, and lifestyle can all play a part in dehydrating skin. When your skin is dehydrated, it feels tight, looks dull, and can be more prone to wrinkles and signs of aging. To keep your skin looking and performing its best, LAB SERIES introduces the Rescue Water 3-Step Regimen, three hydration-packed products featuring Hydra2G TechnologyTM (Hydra2G TechnologyTM is found in all three products and acts like a magnet to attract, bind, and retain moisture. It leaves skin feeling hydrated and refreshed while delivering an instant plumping effect) that work together to keep your skin hydrated for up to 72 hours.

  1. Rescue Water Gel Cleanser
  2. Rescue Water Lotion
  3. Rescue Water Emulsion

“LAB SERIES Rescue Water 3-Step Regimen has taken my skin from tight and dry to healthy and hydrated. It’s been a game changer for me. I live in Los Angeles where the climate is pretty dry, combining that with daily exposure to chlorine from the pool leaves my skin exposed and feeling parched. I use Rescue Water Emulsion right after my training sessions to help keep my skin looking and feeling healthy and hydrated.”
