One of the most common skin care concerns I have seen, no matter what the skin type, is dehydration. I have had clients with acne and oily skin have terrible dehydration. Typically skin that is dried out through the use of harsh ingredients is left even more vulnerable to further oil production and acne breakouts, due to the skin overcompensating. It’s a vicious cycle. It is with this skin type that you want to hydrate the skin with a water based ingredient versus an oil. Drier skin types that lack oil can also be lacking hydration in the skin. Almost everyone I see is dehydrated to some degree.
Nicely hydrated skin is always the goal, it’s what gives us the “dewy look” or that glowing skin we desire. Wrinkles look less defined and make-up glides on beautifully. One of my favorite ingredients to achieve hydration is Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is found within the body, in the eyes and joints. One of my favorite qualities of it, is that it binds moisture from the air, up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. This makes it super powerful for delivering hydration without the heavier feel of an oil. Because of the plumping effects, this ingredient is even used as an injectable wrinkle reducer and for lip plumping in many plastic surgery/medical spa facilities.
One of my favorite topical serums containing this potent ingredient is Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Hylunia. It glides on the skin and is instantly penetrated, leaving the skin feeling light and smooth. It is oil-free making it a great moisturizer option for a acneic or oily skin type. Due to my dry skin, I use it underneath my moisturizer as a hydrating booster and it makes my skin feel silky and smooth. This product is for everyone, it is extremely gentle and even healing for more extreme skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis.
