  • Understanding Hyaluronic Acid

    27Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found in your body and in animals. It serves as a lubricator in between joints and even inside of your eye. It’s a component of your connective tissues, serving as a barrier and cushion between your joints and limbs.

    Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a very popular ingredient used within many skin care products. It is usually paired with vitamin C to assist in the penetration of your skin. It’s effective for reducing the appearance of aging symptoms and damaged skin on the face and has been regarded as the “key to the fountain of youth.” This is because of its natural properties found inside our bodies.

    As you age, you begin to lose significant amounts of this important substance. Smoking and certain diets can also alter the amount you have over time. With the loss of hyaluronic acid, more wrinkles begin to appear and your skin may get dry. This is why many anti-aging products formulate their mixture using HA to restore hydration and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. But what started the hyaluronic acid revelation and its use in skin care products?

    Years ago, in a small Japanese village by the name of Yuzurihara, Connie Chung set out to discover what the secret was for the villagers’ long lives and youthful looking skin. They lived very long lives, well into their 80s and 90s. Very few of them wore glasses and most of them still had a full head of hair and great, flawless skin.

    She found out that the villagers’ diets are full of root vegetables, fish, and low iron foods which allow their bodies to retain more hyaluronic acid levels, which other people around the world tend to lose as they age. The villagers’ bodies had much higher levels of HA than the average level humans tend to have. This was the reason for their wrinkle-free faces, no age spots, and beautiful hair. So make sure to eat healthy, incorporating certain vegetables and iron in your diet, in order to maintain your hyaluronic acid levels. It just might be the real “key to the fountain of youth.”

    Their TNS Night Eye Repair is a highly effective eye cream that drastically reduces aging symptoms around your eye area. It improves the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, and loose skin. Although very powerful and potent, it is still extremely gentle for the sensitive eye area.

    Like the Dermal Repair Cream, it increases firmness and elasticity, while the high concentrations of vitamins A, C, and E improve the general appearance of the skin around your eye. The loose or sagging skin is strengthened and hydrated to reduce any fragility. Unlike other eye creams, it has special ingredients that stimulate tissue repair and cell growth deep within the surface of your skin. Its moisturizers keep the skin hydrated underneath the epidermis, instead of just on the outside.

  • Spritzers & Misters – Don’t leave home without one

    misterEver notice that the fresh-faced look you had in the morning doesn’t seem to last throughout the day? Your makeup isn’t as bright, your skin gets dry or oily, and you might be a little blotchy. To help your complexion and hydrate your skin throughout the day, use a facial spritzer or mister.

    Certain misters are infused with antioxidants, water, and essential nutrients to give you back the glow your skin lost. When you leave home, your face and skin must deal with weather conditions and environmental stressors which can wear your skin down. This causes you to lose that fresh look you had before you left. Caking on makeup will only temporarily resolve this problem and cause it to get worse after 15 minutes, not to mention how much it can clog your pores. Spritzers rejuvenate your skin without you having to re-wash your face and re-apply makeup.

    Kinerase Hydrating Mist is formulated with white tea and hyaluronic acid to maintain moisture and protect against free radical damage. You can use a mister before you apply makeup, after makeup, and anytime during the day to refresh and recharge your skin. Now you can go back home looking the same way you did when you left.
