Hyaluronic acid is a moisturizing particle that helps your skin retain water. in fact, it is naturally found in areas like your joints, eye sockets, healing wounds, and more -areas your body needs to keep moisturized.

This little miracle ingredient addresses signs of skin aging caused by time  (including decreased production of hyaluronic acid) and changes in the body as well as signs of aging caused by exposure to elements- sun, harsh winds, and more. Hyaluronic acid addresses both types of skin aging.

When you’re using hyaluronic acid, you’ll see a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as dry and flaky skin. Your skin will be softer, more elastic, and more moisturized. This ingredient is truly a crucial part of caring for your skin and maintaining a youthful glow.

Serums and eye creams will work wonders- studies show that you can see results in as little as two weeks, but many users report seeing immediate improvement. You can also add it to your diet. It is a supplement that can be easily added to a smoothie and will have may benefits beyond improving your skin. Find the best approach for you and start to see younger-looking skin emerge.

Watch Out for Multilevel Marketing Skin Care!

How many of your friends are independent skin care consultants offering you incredible results with their line of skin products? We all have at least a few Facebook friends who are in this business— you’ll know them by their home parties, their recurring posts about the improvements they’ve seen in their/their clients’ skin, and their persistent invitations to do a quick skin consultation with them. However, if you are looking for real results it’s best to stay far away from these products.

At best, these products are priced like professional products but manufactured like drugstore products. Consultants make money on commissions from their sales, and the sales of anyone they have recruited, and the sales of recruits below those people, so these products need to cover a lot of costs for each sale.

At worst, the consultants are not educated enough in skin care to give you the product with the correct ingredients and can cause your skin to worsen or create new conditions. Estheticians have taken classes and passed a state board exam that indicates they can correctly identify skin conditions and treat them. Not all acne can be treated the same, not all dryness in skin can be treated the same, certain allergies do not pair well with certain ingredients, and so on. Only a person who has studied skin care would know about all these – a skin care representative for a multilevel marketing brand is very unlikely to.

It is always best to work with a skincare professional, especially if you have problem skin and want to address issues like dryness, acne, aging, etc. If you’re going to pay professional skincare prices, be sure you are getting professional skincare products and actually benefitting your skin. Skin care should be very personalized, and working with a professional consistently can help you try something new and adjust your course as you see how each new product interacts with your skin.
