We all know hydration is key – here’s why
Skin Institute
May 31, 2016

We read about it everywhere: hydration is so essential to our health. But what is hydration and why is it so essential? At a basic level, hydration is about ensuring your body has enough water in it to function optimally. Yes, we can help our bodies by drinking water and eating foods with a high water content. But for many it’s tough to drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day. Luckily, our bodies naturally help us with something called hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that secures moisture and creates fullness.

Sadly though, as you age, your body produces less and less hyaluronic acid, and this results in a loss of firmness and pliability.

That’s why innovative brands like Aspect Dr have developed products to help.

Aspect Dr has recently released their Hyaluronic Serum, which can help improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time, strengthen the skin’s barrier (the outer layers of your skin). A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother and plumper. It glows – and don’t we all want glowing skin?

This Hyaluronic Serum also provides antioxidant defense against free radicals and reduces inflammation, making it an excellent post-treatment skin care product. In particular, it is very effective after IPL treatments. The main reason is that post treatment your skin can be warm and slightly inflamed.

Aspect Dr Hyaluronic Serum can help to repair the skin and provide hydration – which is important after a heat-based treatment like IPL. When you use it post-treatment it literally starts working immediately to help reduce sensitivity, redness and inflammation, and increase your skin’s moisture content, optimizing the results from your treatment. Consistent use of skin care products containing with hyaluronic acid can reduce the appearance of fine lines, promote younger looking skin and help create a healthier skin barrier.Aspect Dr Hyaluronic Serum is available from Skin Institute clinics or buy online here
