I’m not going to lie. Since a brief stint in high school where hormones and my basketball career collided on my face to result in a less than desirable skin situation, I’ve had pretty decent skin. Yes, I struggle with blackheads and the occasional breakout, but I haven’t really ever had tricky skin. Well, that’s until I was solidly in my thirties and that whimsical glow of youth somehow vanished overnight setting me forever on the hunt for things that give me even a hint of that old sparkle.
I was introduced to Hyaluronic Acid almost as soon as I noticed my skin start to take a turn and have used it steadily ever since. Though the name sounds scary (well at least to me, it has ACID in it?) it is actually a naturally occurring substance within your skin already, so when applied topically, the benefits are pretty sweet. From moisturizing to plumping, Hyaluronic Acid has all the benefits my aging skin needs and I’m here for it.
Famed French skincare brand, La Roche Posay, has come up with a way to take your Hyaluronic Acid to another levelby adding B5. It’s simply named Hyalu B5, combining the two for a product line that is not only safe for the most sensitive of skins but also that works to plump up fine lines, stimulate collagen synthesis and boost the effects of the active ingredients B5 and Hyaluronic Acid. SOLD!
Since adding this duo to my skincare regime about a month ago I’ve seen a noticeable difference to my skin’s suppleness. My bf even said the other day out of the blue (and I quote) “Babe, your skin is bangin” And let’s be honest, I was slightly stoked…
Save the date alert! If you’re interested to learn more about these products I’ve been loving, La Roche-Posay is having an event next week and I’m so excited to be able to extend the invite to you! Join me in a class with La Roche-Posay, featuring a dermatologist to learn everything you need to know about aging skin.
Here are all the details.
