letter from elizabeth

No Bounds HISTORICALLY, I’M NOT AN OUTDOORSY TYPE. I grew up in a city, I dislike being cold (or hot), and I hated sleepaway camp. That’s changed. Given the choice, I prefer to do anything physical outside. If I could do all my workouts under the open sky, I would. I now fully appreciate that hiking in beautiful places is awe inspiring; swimming in clear, blue water is calming and head clearing; and scuba diving along vibrant healthy reefs can be downright magical. I get excited at the prospect of doing all these things—for the experience, sure, but also for the exhilarating feeling they give me afterward. When Shape launched No Bounds, our regular feature that explores the many rewards of being outdoors, we chose that phrase because of the expansiveness and…

transforming textures

PRESSED These serums start as a fairly solid balm, which then melts into a lotion. “One specific ingredient, a polymer called a rheology modifier, is responsible for this transformation, causing the thick formula to become flowable when you apply pressure by massaging it into skin,” says Jessica Snell, a research and development director at Neutrogena. Once you’ve rubbed the serum in fully, it shifts back to a thin balm, “leaving a nice, cushiony feel and an effective barrier that holds moisture in,” she says. “There are many formulas that create a moisture-retaining barrier—oils and petrolatum, for example—but this polymer forms that seal on the skin without feeling heavy.” The result: You get the hydration of a thick balm without its greasy side effects.
