With my 37th birthday right around the corner, I have been looking for ways to keep wrinkles from creeping their way onto my face. There are an overwhelming amount of product available and all claim to be the next Fountain of Youth. I, up until recently, only use a light weight moisturizer with sunscreen as my beauty regime. As I will soon be 40-3, as my husband loves to point out, I decided I need to step up my game so that I don't start looking 40+3. This why I was excited to try 180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Acid Serum + Vitamin C.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in almost every cell in our bodies but it's largest concentrations are found in our skin tissue. It provides continuous moisture to our skin. When we are young, our skin is smooth and elastic due to the large concentration of hyaluronic acid. As we get older, we start to produce less which means our skin loses moisture.
I get dry skin on my face frequently so I was excited to try the serum to see if it helped. Following the products directions, I place 5 drops of the serum in the palm of my hand. I then applied small amounts of the serum to each area of my face, avoiding the eyes, and massaged it in circular motions. I then let it fully absorb and dry and then apply my moisturizer.
At first I really didn't notice a change in my skin. A little after a week though I noticed that I hadn't seen any dry patches on my face like I used to get. I was ecstatic! Having dry skin and wearing foundation isn't a pretty combo, the dryness is extremely noticeable and often looks scaly. Another change I noticed was that my face felt softer to the touch, I assume this can be attributed to the extra moisture in my skin. One thing I was worried about was the serum causing my skin to break out. I have always had problems with acne and in the past some skin care products, for whatever reason, have caused my skin to freak out. This, thankfully,was not an issue. If anything I feel like my acne has gotten better. I will definitely continue using 180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Vitamin C. I loved the results I saw!
