While social distancing has allowed people to get creative with communications, work, and dining out, it has left many struggling in the self-care department. Manicures, root touch ups, and other spa related treatments are now in the far off future. But beauties, that does not mean that you can’t implement at home treatments, especially when it comes to skincare.

So, if you want to find out what can you do to maintain a skincare routine at home and not look like a hot mess, continue reading!

Stressed Out Skin
We are bringing this up as stress can really have an impact on the skin. Not only does stress cause a chemical response, but it also has a hormonal response, where there is an increase in your cortisol levels (AKA stress hormone). Which, in turn, can lead to a breakdown in elastin, causing wrinkles. And I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want after quarantine is dull, aggravated skin and premature wrinkles to add to my gray roots, that I couldn’t cover.

Stress is a common factor in many skin concerns. Stress increases cortisol levels, body temperature, blood pressure and to add to this mounting stress ball, during times of stress - we drink less water. Our bodies are trying to process the excess levels of cortisol by pushing them out of our kidneys, level off our blood pressure and temperature which results in heat and moisture loss. Skin that is both oily and dry in areas need hydrating moisture to both help retain water volume while satisfying the skins thirst which will turn off the over production of oil glands making excess amounts of oil in response to the lack of hydration triggers. Hydrate then apply a light moisturizer to combat this daily. Use pure, minimal ingredient products for best results.

Hydrate And Vegetate With Hyaluronic Acid
So, while you are on that Netflix binge, you can still be taking care of your skin. Our go-to skincare ingredient during quarantine is Hyaluronic Acid (HA).

Hyaluronic acids are so essential in skincare. Let’s first talk about how it can help with that dehydrated skin caused by stress!

How Hyaluronic Acid Helps With Dehydration
Hyaluronic Acid attracts up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. This means it is excellent for retaining skin moisture, keeping the skin plump allowing for the space that the renewal process needs to continue cellular turnover at a much faster pace for younger-looking skin while increasing absorption of potent anti-aging active ingredients such as firming peptides, smoothing retinol, antioxidants such as astaxanthin (non oxidizing & 600 times stronger than vitamin c), plant stem cells, fruit stem cells (apple stem cells) & more.

Wait There's More...
There are other benefits of using skincare that has hyaluronic acid and they include many anti-aging effects. You see, as we start to age our natural hyaluronic acid levels decrease resulting in collagen declines causing wrinkles and fine lines to become more visible. Maximizing and protecting collagen levels will keep the skin supple, which is why it is essential to incorporate products with Hyaluronic Acid in them. HA is the ultimate hydrator in keeping skin soft & supple with plenty of springy bounce back.

Yes, you can buy hyaluronic acid serum almost anywhere but know that not all hyaluronic serums or actual formulas are created equal. Hyaluronic acid comes from many sources (both vegan & animal), is available in different strengths & concentrations and is formulated pure or along with other ingredients - some necessary to make it a safe topical but many are filled with chemicals, parabens, sulfates, drying alcohols and sadly - more. 

So How Do You KNOW Which HA is the Best for YOUR Skin?
You best bet is to always go for the purest hyaluronic acid serum as it will render optimal results. Read & compare ingredient labels so you know you are getting the purest one. Each ingredient is listed on the label from strongest (highest amount) or most abundant to weakest (least amount). For your quick reference, we have compiled a list of some of the most popular hyaluronic serums on the market to help you distinguish and compare between formulas.
