I just turned 40. I had planned to write one of of those long posts sharing all the lessons I’ve learnt in my life so far… but life had other plans and I never got around to. What I can say is that one lesson I have learnt in these past 40 years is to look after your skin! You only get one and to ensure it looks great and protects your body you well into your old age you need to feed it with the right ingredients and protect it from the harsh environment we live in daily.
Sunscreen is your first line of defence to protect against the skins of skin ageing, however as our skin ages, its structure and appearance changes.
The first signs of skin ageing are normally fine lines and wrinkles and as the ageing process progresses the skin starts to sag and we experience a loss of volume (hello jowls!).
In the more advanced stages of skin ageing wrinkles increase and deepen while elasticity, firmness and radiance reduce. It’s not a pretty story, right!?
Fortunately we live in an era where top scientists are paid to research what will work to slow down the signs of ageing! There are so many options available to use know – surgery, aesthetic treatments, skin care products, active ingredients. It can be very overwhelming to know where to start! I know!
My stance on ageing is to do what I can within my own budget. Sometimes that allows for the occasional facial or treatment but mostly that means I rely on using great skin products that I can afford. I’m constantly asked what skin care products can I recommend for those on a budget so I’m always thrilled to be able to suggest affordable skin care ranges.
Specifically the Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler range. This range offers topical anti-ageing solutions with products tailored to every major stage of the skin aging process.
- Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler tackles the first signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.
- Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler + Volume-Lift addresses the deepening wrinkles and loss of volume, contours and firmness that develop as skin ages.
- Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler + Elasticity nourishes fragile and mature skin. It plumps up deep wrinkles and improves elasticity.
The Hyaluron ranges include day and night creams to suit different skin types and as well as serums, a facial oil, eye creams and CC creams. All products have been clinically and dermatologically proven to provide good efficacy and skin tolerability.
Recently I was sent the Eucerin Ultra Light Hyaluron Filler Moisture Booster to try out. This product is formulated with a combination of two concentrated types of hyaluronic acid and glycerin. These two substances are produced naturally by the skin to keep itself moisturised, they work as moisture magnets plumping up skin with immediate and intensive moisture that leaves skin hydrated, smooth, and healthy.
What is Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Moisture Booster Serum?
This ultra-light and refreshing gel serum has been designed to be used as the first step after cleansing and before your moisturising cream or oil:
- Super-hydrating ultra-light transparent gel
- Loaded with two different sizes of Hyaluronic Acid for 24-hour moisturisation
- Fast absorbing water-gel texture
- Doesn’t overload the skin
- Plumps up the surface skin from within by attracting and binding water to the skin
Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Moisture Booster uses a combination of highly concentrated medium and short-chained Hyaluronic acid. The short chain Hyaluronic Acid is a smaller molecule and can penetrate deeper in to skin to really plump. The medium chain HA molecules, are larger molecules and these remain on the skin’s surface attracting water and binding it to the skin leaving it hydrated.
This product will give your skin an immediate moisture boost!
Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Moisture Booster Serum Review
This serum has a lovely “fresh” texture making it the ideal summer moisturiser. It’s a water-gel consistency that is slightly tacky for a minute or so after application and then it dries down and absorbs very effectively into the skin. It leaves the skin feeling quenched and smooth.
This is a really nice addition to any skincare regime, esp for those struggling with the appearance of the first signs of ageing. It is a really effective hydrator and plumps up fine lines making skin look fresh and feel comfortable.
