One of my all time favorite hydration products is Hyaluronic Acid. You may have heard of this acid, because it is the number one anti-aging ingredient on the market right now.
Hyaluronic is an acid that we, as humans, naturally produce. This is the key reason why baby skin is so smooth and plump. As we grow into young adults, we slowly start to lose this acid in our bodies and by the time we are adults, it is mainly all gone.
Skin Care specialist are creating a way to topically push hyaluronic back into the skin, for a smooth, hydrated and plump complexion.
Not only does hyaluronic work for aging skin, but it is an amazing product for acneic-oily, and dry skin as well.
Holding 1,000x its weight in water, hyaluronic provides locked moisture, plumpness, and firming to the skin.
Here is a few ways to start using hyaluronic in your skin care regiment:
Aging/Dry Skin- Use every morning and night, right after you cleanse your face, add moisturizer on top.
Acneic/Oily Skin- Use at night only, 3/4 times a week. Will help lock in moisture so skin is not so oily the next day.
Post Acneic/Scarring Skin- Use during scarring treatments (micro-needling/microdermabrasion/peels/nano-needle). Put on skin right after a micro-needle session. Use only hyaluronic for 2 days after a session. This will get into the punctured area and fill/plump up the scar to smooth out pit scarring or uneven surface scarring from acne.
When purchasing and using, you always want to find the purest, highest concentrate of hyaluronic acid, for the best results!
Blends are a cheaper/good way to start, but will take longer to notice results.
Start plumping my friends!

I have just returned back to the states from Italy, and one thing that stood out to me the most, was their food culture.
There was not one night that the servers didn’t bring out a jug of red wine, for the table to share.
I mean you asked for water, and you still were brought wine with that water.
What’s with that? Why is wine such a huge part of their culture?
Let me explain.
Red wine is the new ‘IT’ in ant-aging, weight loss, health, and overall happiness!
I know many of you have heard, “drink a glass of red wine a night, it makes for a healthier heart.” ❤️
Well did you know that new studies show women who drink a glass or two of red wine every night, have higher success in losing weight, than those who don’t? This pairs with those who do drink wine, also have a lower stress and anxiety rates, through an every day work life.
If those reasons are still not enough to encourage you to relax with this wonderful-high antioxidant beverage, how about all the health benefits it gives to your health and skin?
The high antioxidants and polyphenols in red wine will:
make your skin glow, clear up any uneven complexions, make you live five years longer, have fewer precancerous skin lesions, and significantly lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Still not convinced? Try it topically first.
New skin care lines all over the world are introducing new “red wine facials.”
These skin care products are being made for topical use to create masks, night creams, cleansers, and scrubs with many beneficial ingredients of red wine.
Now go enjoy a glass.. or two!
