Day 29 of #MaySkinChallenge is 'Skin Hero' - I wasn't really sure what to make of this and after 28 days I'm kind of over talking about products, so I thought I'd share some women whose skin I admire, or my 'skin heroes' as it were. I'd say the common thread is they're all aging gracefully and are proof positive that beautiful skin is achievable at any age (they're a span of mid 30's to 80+). If I had to pick a 'hero' from my own arsenal it would have to be *CONSISTENCY* - nothing has had a greater effect on my skin than allowing products the time they need to produce the desired result. IMO, miracle products are a misnomer and good skin doesn't happen overnight /rant #beauty#instabeauty#skinsta#skincare#skincarejunkie#skincareroutine#naturalbeauty#naturalskincare#greenbeauty#30plusskincare
@privai aqua gel masque first time trial. I like the way this mask feels. It's really soothing from the aloe and has a nice, slightly cooling effect. Seemed to calm the acne on my chin. *praise* •
Hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans (GAGs!) are a humectant that binds water molecules together to retain moisture in the skin. •
These polysaccharides along with water fill the spaces between the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis. •
As part of the ground substance in the dermis, GAGs are a gel-like fluid responsible for drawing and locking in moisture from blood vessels. This water eventually makes its way to the epidermal layers for hydrated, fresh, and plump-looking skin.
