You've probably heard the words "hyaluronic acid" floating around in the skincare world. But do you know why it's so beneficial? Hyaluronic acid binds to water and helps to hold in moisture so it's extremely beneficial for those with dehydrated skin. Most of us truly have dehydrated skin. This is not only due to not drinking enough water but it can also be due to taking certain medications or drinking too much caffeine. Even if you drink so much water throughout the day, did you know your skin is the last organ to actually receive any benefit from the water you drink?
Remember dehydrated skin is dry due to lack of water and dry skin is due to a lack of oil. When searching for your Hyaluronic Acid to apply daily, make sure you choose one with minimal ingredients. I use Hyaluronic Acid from Asterwood Naturals (see below pic).
SKIN TYPE OF THE DAY: Before applying your hyaluronic acid, spritz toner on your face first. Remember hyaluronic acid BINDS to water, so it will work more efficiently if it binds with the water in the toner first.
