Today marks the beginning of a new rubric called “Maryse’s tips.” Maryse is Ardain’s wife, and she has been fascinated about sharing her tips with both viewers in The Conversation and readers here at CSMS Magazine. The tips will cover a wide range of recipes, from cuisine to cosmetics, like the one she is sharing with you today: How to make facial serum with hyaluronic acid.
1. 1/2 teaspoon hyaluronic powder
2. 7 tablespoon distilled water
3. ½ tablespoon glycerin
4. 1/3 teaspoon preservatives of your choice
Then, mix altogether in a blender.
Health Benefits for the face
Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles that retain moisture in the skin and create a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn’t busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells.
While it won’t speed up the cell renewal process, hyaluronic acid does help promote skin cell regeneration by offering extra hydration and barrier protection to the skin. This naturally leads to healthier cells and a more vibrant complexion. Much in the same way it makes the appearance of the skin look tighter, hyaluronic acid also smooth the texture of the skin.
This process will ultimately result in a silky-smooth finish you can see and feel. If your skin is visibly scarred from acne, the hyaluronic acid will not fill in those scars. But, combined with a tool like a derma roller, over time, hyaluronic acid plus a derma roller can make skin look smoother.
