Essential Skin Care Tips for Travelling.

Since plain air is very dry, we all know how important it is to
stay hydrated – both from the outside and inside. Before getting on the plane,
we always recommend applying a 
serum formulated with hyaluronic acid, followed
hydrating cream, to lock the moisture in. This will help you keep your skin
glowing and healthy-looking during the whole trip. Drinking plenty of water is
also a must, in order to keep your complexion luminous and bright.

Speaking of hyaluronic acid – what do you know about it? Did you
know that this remarkable compound has the ability to retain water like no
other skin care ingredient on the market? If you want to learn more about
hyaluronic acid, stay with us!

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a compound made primarily of sugar, and it is
found naturally in the connective tissues of your body. Its primary function in
the body is to bind with water molecules to help your body retain moisture and
to lubricate your joints so that you can move more easily.


How Does Hyaluronic Acid
Benefit Your Skin?

Thanks to its remarkable moisture-retaining properties,
hyaluronic acid is one of the favorite ingredients of skin care manufacturers –
it is used in a wide variety of products, ranging from moisturizers and eye
creams, to facial mists and toners.

As we age, our skin’s natural ability to retain moisture begins
to diminish, so it becomes essential to get the moisture needed in order to
retain skin’s elasticity and keep it looking supple and youthful. Here is where
hyaluronic acid steps in. Not only hyaluronic acid makes your skin look fresh
and plump, but it also protects it from free radical damage, which is of high importance when it comes to preventing premature aging.

Apart from moisturizing and slowing the aging process,
hyaluronic acid also strengthens skin’s outer protective barrier. This is especially
important for those who struggle with rosacea, acne and eczema, as their skin
tends to be more susceptible to environmental damage.

What’s best about hyaluronic acid is that it occurs naturally in
your body; therefore it is perfectly safe for use, regardless of your age and
skin type!
