Hydration is the key to glowing skin!
What is Active Hydration Serum by Rodan and Fields?
Active Hydration should be called the serum of the gods! I could not believe how amazingly this product instantly made my skin feel. I have tried many serums in my quest for anti aging and many I have found have a sticky feeling after it dry’s. I hate sticky!!! This felt smooth and hydrating!!!
From the Rodan and Fields website:
“The R+F Active Hydration Serum™ is a moisture-loving super serum that boosts your skincare Regimen’s performance thanks to 30% Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid. Our proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws in moisture from the air and locks it in, creating a water reservoir that delivers continuous, all-day hydration and smoother, softer, more radiant-looking skin.”
Why is Glycerin and Hyaluronic acid so important for skin health?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body. The highest concentration of hyaluronic acid is found in the fluid around the eyes and in the joints. For joints hyaluronic acid acts like lubrication. For skin it plumps it giving us that glowing plump look that we all want and love! Hyaluronic Acid is also the main ingredient is most fillers. It is the main ingredient in our favorite lip filler call Juvederm Ultra XC by Allergan. Your body loves this ingredient because our bodies make it naturally. As we get older our bodies start making less of Hyaluronic Acid and we start noticing it in our skin and joints first!
Glycerin has a syrupy consistency and taste like nectar. It has been widely used in many skin products and for good reason! Glycerin is a natural humectant. As a humectant it allows our bodies to hold on to water. Hydration products are holding on to water in the skin. Why is this important? Water causes a natural plumpness to the skin. Young skin is highly hydrated giving it that healthy youthful glow! Glycerin also promotes skin cell maturation. Skin cell maturation means replacing old cells with new cells. Products that are promoting “Anti-Aging” most likely are trying to speed up cell turnover. As we age our bodies can not replace cell as quickly as we were able too, leaving us with dry dull skin.
What is 3D3P Molecular Matrix?
From the Rodan and Fields website:
“This unique 3D3P matrix with Hyaluronic Acid and an unprecedented level of 30% Glycerin attracts and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface so your skin stays continuously hydrated all day. And hydrated skin responds more easily to the skincare products layered on top, therefore boosting their performance.”
“Did you know dryness makes your skin look and act older? R+F Active Hydration Serum™ is clinically tested to instantly raise skin’s hydration level by 200% after just one use, and maintains it for up to eight hours*. This oil-free, super-hydrating serum fights dryness two ways, thanks to the R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix.”
I did not know a lot about this ingredient because is proprietary to Rodan and Fields. What I can say is that I have never experienced a serum like this. It is my favorite product that I currently use.
Do you want glowing skin?
If you want glowing skin then you need to add this serum to your regimen! You will use it after your toner and before your moisturizer. You are using moisturizers and toners right? We hope so! Here is a consultation tool for you to find out what regimen is right for you.
We recommend a full regimen and the Active Hydration serum for best results. If you want to age gracefully you need to start now. Also, if you have never used professional products and your skin is showing its age, it is not too late to reverse some of the damage.
