Moisture is the key to keeping skin hydrated. Hydration is the key to keeping wrinkles at a safe distance and skin remaining youthful and plump.
However for me, a year back my skin decided to go into a hormonal rage and break out with what only seemed to me an horrendous amount of pimples…actually it was only hormonal chin acne but that’s not the point, I went back to a teens skincare routine and managed to dry my skin out horribly even to the point of flaking!
I’ve been using the Ultraceuticals B5 Hydrating Serum (WINNER GLOSSCARS 2014 BEST NEW TREATMENT! WOW!!!) and Ultra Replenishing Mask for 4 weeks now and I can’t fault it. My skin is nearly back on track. Slowly the flaking stopped and now at week 4 I’m noticing a plumpness and glow I haven’t seen for a fair while.
Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum (pictured)
This moisture enhancing oil-free serum utilises the power of Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) combined with Hyaluronic Acid, capable of holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water, to synergistically help restore vital moisture balance and provide long-lasting hydration to all skin types. Enriched with anti-ageing Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), this moisturising must-have works to visibly plump and reduce fine lines and wrinkles to give the skin a supple, dewy and more youthful appearance. An ideal complement to your daily moisturiser to dramatically help increase the hydration levels of tired, stressed or extremely dehydrated skin.
Recommended for all skin types.
