I’ve always had dry skin ever since I can remember. (Confused about yours? Find out your skin type here) And ever since I found out about Hylauronic Acid, I buy almost everything that has it.
Acid? On your skin? Isn’t that bad?
It actually isn’t.
Think of hyaluronic acid like a BIG drink of water for your skin. It is able to hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water. Hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin and binds water to skin cells, infusing all layers of the skin with valuable, rejuvenating moisture.
Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. As it fills the skin with moisture, it also tightens the overall complexion.
So when Henaa Hainaa Beauty decided to drop their Hydra Elixir, I KNEW I had to get it. Why? Hyaluronic Acid, that’s why.
Inspired by K-beauty for glass skin with its key ingredient being hyaluronic acid. Its moisture attracting properties, regardless of your skin-type, helps in achieving plump and radiant skin.
Under makeup, it plumps and smoothes everything out and leaves a gorgeous, silky veil on the skin for your makeup application.
JAPANESE CAMELLIA OIL: Camellia oil, which is derived from the plant, is so highly potent with fatty acids that nourish the skin and help improve collagen. It is non-greasy and an excellent all-around moisturizer for the skin.
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL: Because lavender oil can penetrate pores to kill bacteria, it may go far in preventing and healing breakouts.
FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL: Anti-Aging and Wrinkle Fighter, frankincense essential oil is a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It helps to reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and it even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging.
SANDALWOOD ESSENTIAL OIL: Sandalwood essential oil is very effective in healing and fading out scar tissue acne scars, blemishes. As a well-known astringent, sandalwood essential oil is very useful in getting rid of overly oily skin by tightening large pores and controlling excess sebum secretion.
VITAMIN E: Vitamin E heals skin tissue. Additionally, it smoothes and repairs acne scars and other types of scar tissue.
I love the Hydra Elixir. And 10/10, I’d recommend it to everybody with all types of skin. Because even though the elixir has a bunch of oils, it is in no way, oily.
I like to apply this while doing skin care, or any time my skin is feeling tired. An instant uplifter, it makes your skin look happy.
The Hydra Elixir feels a little tacky post application, but the tackiness disappears after a couple of minutes. Revealing soft, supple skin. The elixir has definitely become a favourite of mine within 2 days of usage.
The cherry on top? It smells absolutely divine.
