Hydrating With DeciemFriday, 3 March 2017
I don't know about you but my skin goes into meltdown over the winter months. I try and change up my routine a little bit. With the combination of the central heating and going from warm to cold, my skin is in serious need of hydration. I'm resembling somewhat of a snake right now - all the scales. *thumbs up* I met with the lovely Laura from Deciem the other week, who told me all sorts about the brand. I'd heard of them on Caroline Hirons' blog but had never tried any of their products for myself. The brand itself has some amazing science behind it and varying price points to suit different pockets.
If you're a newbie to skincare then The Ordinary is for you. Their products are really cheap (this Hyaluronic Acid is only £5.90) and this gives you the flexibility to try stuff out without dropping a load of money. Normally products with HA in them claim to hydrate the skin but in fact because of the large molecules only draw moisture out of the skin and give temporary hydration. This little baby has three forms of HA in all with different sized molecules meaning the product can actually penetrate the skin. It also helps to visibly plump the skin which is great for all those looking for a quick anti-aging fix.
I don't know what it is but I love a good facial spray. There is something quite luxurious about it. But also they are really handy for throwing in your bag and hydrating through out the day when you need it. I find if you work in a city or built up area your skin can become dry through pollution and other such nasty things. It features glucuronic acid which has a higher water-retaining capacity than hyaluronic acid. Purified green tea, golden eye grass root and tasmanian pepperberry help to reduce signs of irritation, inflammation and redness.
Lastly we have one of the most expensive of the bunch. NIOD is Deciem's more expensive brand. I tried to read the description of this product on their website so I could summarise the effects here. Safe to say it went completely over my head. However I do know that the twelve hyaluronic compounds offer added hydration while also helping to plump the skin. It does also promise to make the skin look more uniform, great for someone like me that has a few patches of scarring from teenage spots.
