Hyaluronic Acid – Why It’s a Must-Have In Your Skincare Routine!

Hi guys! I hope everyone is safe and well at the moment during such scary times. Luckily, I made it to my grandma’s last week to isolate with her, which means I am with a family member as opposed to being at uni on my own. I don’t know about any of you, but it still all feels a bit surreal, and to be honest, I am pretty scared right now. I know I always say this, but if anyone feels the same way, you can always drop me a message here – sometimes it’s nice to speak to someone you don’t know when you’re stressed. I know how tough lock-down may be for some of you, me included, and to cope with it I am trying to stay positive and think of everything I am grateful for. I can honestly say that I hope never to take anything or anyone for granted again; I miss my friends, I miss my family, but I also appreciate them more than ever. I also want to take a chance to encourage everyone to please please PLEASE comply with the lock-down stipulations. It’s tough, I know, but we need to do everything we can to stop to spread of COVID-19.

Right, enough of the doom and gloom, let’s get on with the blog! I’ve mentioned a few times how I did an interview with Today’s Lifestyle, and they were kind enough to send me some face masks. One of the ones they sent was Filgora’s ‘Hydra-filler Mask’, used to create an ‘intense hydra-plumping effect’.

Not a very aesthetic picture I know, but you’ve gotta work with what you’ve got!

To lighten the mood a bit, you can also have a picture of me 5 minutes after a mini breakdown, using this face mask to try and cure my troubles…

While it hasn’t remedied all my problems, taking time out for a little pamper always helps. Sheet masks are great, not only for their comedic effect, but also because you can use them multiple times. The instructions advise you to leave on for 15 minutes each time, and I plan on doing this two times a week. Having used this twice now, I can confirm it has left my skin feeling fresh and plump. I’ve decided to really dedicate some time (since I have a lot of it right now) to my skincare regime, particularly while I won’t be wearing make-up. You can check out this face mask on Today’s Lifestyle here, using the code TDLS50 for 50% off your first purchase (making it £5)! More importantly, it contains hyaluronic acid, which is GREAT for your skin, and here’s why…

Our skin actually produces hyaluronic acid naturally to boost moisture, but levels are often compromised for a number of reasons, including ageing and skin pollution through environmental aggressors. As such, it is important that we include it in our skincare routines to ensure our skin is hydrated, moisturised, and plumped to perfection, with dermatologists claiming that it retains remarkable amounts of water in our skin. To avoid a dry complexion, as well as hyaluronic face masks, I use a moisturiser and serum, each of which contains the acid:

  • The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% Serum – £5.95 at Beauty Bay
  • Dr Ever Youth Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser – available for £7.99 at your local TK Maxx store. This isn’t very helpful though, as we can’t shop, so I’ve attached a link to an alternative by The Ordinary which also contains Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid for £5.20.

I know skincare is probably at the bottom of your list of worries right now, but for me it can be a positive distraction – it may not work for everyone, but I hope it helps some of you. As I’ve already said, please do drop me a message, even if it is non-blog related!

Stay safe everyone. Hopefully I will be back next week for more things aesthetic xxx
