Dry Weather, Dehydration, Allergy Season, Hyaluronic … and You!
Cooler, drier weather is upon us! While the cooler weather is fantastic, the added dryness will bring out different issues for our skin such as increased dryness and a lot of times severe dehydration. Dehydration is sneaky because it is not so easily spotted like dry or oily skin. One can still be oily and extremely dehydrated, especially if using products that can be drying like acne products. Another huge factor this time of year (or year round possibly) is allergies, and we are heading directly towards cedar fever! All those great allergy medications that allow us to breathe and to function while coping with allergies severely dry out the body.
It can be very easy for the skin to become out of balance and dehydrated with so many possible factors this time of year. Signs that you are dehydrated include skin that feels tight or is easily irritated, flaking, and developing fine lines.
In light of all these possibilities for skin and body dehydration, I highly recommend using a hyaluronic serum topically for the skin. Also, absolutely increase your water intake as much as possible to help the body cope with the drier weather. This is especially true if you have to take some allergy medications. You cannot drink enough water after taking those guys!
Inventive’s Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Serum is fantastic for dehydration! Hyaluronic serum holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and the body makes it naturally, so it is very compatible with our skin and absorbs quickly for immediate relief. Hyaluronic acid is able to penetrate deeply into the skin and it helps to smooth and plump fine lines from the inside while supporting the skin’s collagen production, making it very effective for dehydration and anti-aging as well. It is also non-comedogenic so it will not make your skin breakout. That makes this product great for everyone, including those prone to breakouts! Hyaluronic serum is great for post-peel as well since it speeds healing by supporting the skin with hydration.
