If there is a time of the year I am not overly keen on, then it’s round about now. It’s cold, freezing and either frosty or raining and utterly, utterly miserable. Welcome on board, winter.
It’s during these bitter months I feel like I have to make a bigger effort as my skin is parched. Something I’ve been relying on to assist with my woes is SkinPep’s Hydra Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum*, which claims to promote a healthy new skin glow using its powerful main ingredient, hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic Acid is not something to be scared of even though it contains ‘acid’ in its name. In fact it’s something your skin craves. As we age, our skin loses its moisture, suppleness and elasticity due to our bodies producing less and less of this acid. SkinPep Hydra-Boost Pure Hyaluronic Acid provides that much needed nourishment to keep your skin looking radiant, youthful and beautiful.
The hypo allergenic formula is free of perfume, paraben and alcohol looks like clear, thick gel that penetrates into the skin quickly and straight to the core. In fact your skin quenches it like one of those super absorbent kitchen towels.
You apply a small amount to cleansed skin (before using a moisturiser) and gently massage in a circular motion for a minute or two twice a day.I’ve been using this serum regularly for about six weeks or more and I have noticed my make-up sits better on my skin and lasts throughout the day. I’ve been working some particularly long hours (9+) so my make-up is applied at the start of my shift and taken off last thing, which is scarily lengthy but coupled with the cold weather, it’s working wonderfully at keeping my skin hydrated beneath and above the surface.
Also I really like how weightless it feels, in fact it’s invisible and it’s a welcome alternative to serums of other variations which may not be to everyone’s liking.
Available in two sizes, a 15 ml costs £8.99 and a 70ml will set you back by £24.99. For more information or to order, visit http://skinpep.com.
