I don’t know about you guys, but I suffered from chronic dry skin most of my adult life. Note that key word “suffered”. Past tense. I haven’t had dry skin since about May and this post is letting you in on my secret weapon.
Don’t get me wrong. I found a ton of moisturizers that would be great in the morning but my mid-afternoon you could see the dry patches and flakes on my skin, mainly my chin and forehead. I tried sleeping masks, sheet masks, creams, serums, everything only worked for a limited time. I had given up and just assumed that my skin would be dry and dull. Enter my secret weapon, Active Hydration Serum.
First off, let’s clear up the confusion. ALL SKIN NEEDS HYDRATION! It doesn’t matter if you have oily, combination, acne prone, sensitive skin, all skin benefits from optimal hydration.
Just because you might not see visible dryness doesn’t mean your skin is hydrated. Hydrated skin looks and acts younger, is more elastic, and less prone to wrinkles. This AHS is made from a proprietary molecule called the 3D3P matrix, combining 30% glycerin plus hyaluronic acid locks in moisture from the atmosphere forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface. Most products contain 1-3% glycerin so this packs a moisture punch. It’s been tested to instantly raise hydration levels by 200% after just one use, and maintains those levels for 8+ hours. Hydrated skin also allows the products you layer on top to be better absorbed thus boosting the performance of your other skincare.
I was skeptical when I heard all the fancy information regarding this because, let’s face it, every new product has some exciting draw to get your attention. However, because I know it’s developed by dermatologists, and they are currently the number one skincare company in North America, I expected them to live up to their claims. After one application I noticed by the end of the day my makeup didn’t flake where I normally had dry skin. I used it in the morning as a primer for my makeup, and in the evenings with my nighttime skincare routine. I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in my forehead wrinkles as well. I continue to use it morning and night and love the results. If my skin looks extra glowy you can thank the AHS.
The formula is oil-free, lightweight, non-comedogenic (aka doesn’t clog pores) and non-greasy. It does has a slight stickiness to it (common with glycerin products), but that disappears once you layer it. The packaging is chic and lux. It comes with a glass dropper that dispenses the perfect amount each time.
The secret is out. This is my holy grail when it comes to fighting those winter dry patches. Curious to give this a try? Contact me here or over on Instagram and I’ll hook you up with the best price!
