With fall upon us and winter just around the corner, it is more important than ever to make sure your skin stays moisturized and hydrated. Dry skin tends to itch, crack, flake, and it shows fine lines and wrinkles much more than hydrated skin. A great way to deeply moisturize your skin is by adding Hyaluronic Acid to your routine.
Hyaluronic Acid is the key to well hydrated young looking skin, and it occurs naturally in our bodies, but as we age the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies in greatly decreased. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural moisturizer and water binder; it can bind 1,000 times its own weight in water. When used in conjunction with your moisturizer, it will help drive the moisture down into the different layers of your skin leaving it looking fresh and youthful. Contrary to its name, Hyaluronic Acid doesn’t burn your skin or hurt in any way; it actually nourishes, soothes, and hydrates the skin.
How to use Hyaluronic Acid:
- Cleanse your skin as you normally would.
- Apply toner.
- Apply your Hyaluronic Acid and let it sink into your skin.
- Apply your favorite moisturizer.
- Use a sunscreen if you will be going outside.
Everyone can benefit from using Hyaluronic Acid, no matter what their skin type may be. It is best to use a 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid gel or 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum because they tend to work the best. Give this a try to keep your skin moisturized and youthful, and see your Esthetician every 4 weeks for a facial to keep your skin looking great!
