What's Inside the Serum: All About the Ingredients
The perfect serum is a sum of great ingredients blended in the perfect combination. While every skin specialist works by keeping your best in mind, knowing what’s in any skincare product is important. It not only helps you understand how exactly the serum is protecting and improving your skin but also prevents untoward incidents in the form of allergies and reactions.
The Piel Hydra Fluid is created using high-quality ingredients. Each element in the serum has been hand-picked to ensure that your skin stays healthy and hydrated.
So, what are these special ingredients? Let’s break it down:
Allantoin is a gentle ingredient that’s perfect for all kinds of skin types, including sensitive ones. It contains anti-inflammatory and exfoliating properties. This ingredient works wonders on the skin by smoothing out wrinkles, protecting the skin from chapping, and preventing it from getting dry. It’s even used to cure minor skin irritations like rashes and rough skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural compound that comes in all kinds of forms and sizes. It’s super-rich in water content and adds a soft, plump texture to the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Since it’s more than worth its weight in water, you can happily say ‘goodbye’ to dry skin with this ingredient. It helps maintain and increase the moisture balance in the skin.
As each molecule affects the skin differently (depending on the weight), the Hydra Fluid uses both, High and Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid.
- High Molecular Weight: High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid starts working immediately on the surface of the skin as soon as it is applied. It’s perfect for short-term, quick skin repair.
- Low Molecular Weight: Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is able to penetrate much deeper into the skin due to its tiny size. Thus, it nourishes and moisturizes the skin on a much deeper level and over a longer period of time.
- Pentylene Glycol
As the saying goes, where there’s moisture, bacteria and fungi are bound to appear. That’s where Pentylene Glycol comes in. This moisturizer works as an anti-microbial, keeping undesirable microorganisms away from the skin and protecting it from infections. It also works as a thickener, making it easier to apply on the skin. The best part? It comes with preservatory properties that replace the need for preservatives that may otherwise be harmful to the skin.
- Sodium Lactate
A good sign of healthy skin is one without lesions or calluses. Sodium Lactate is effective in protecting the skin against these with its Keratolytic qualities. It acts as a Humectant by retaining and preserving the moisture in the skin. It can hold twice the amount of moisture when compared to Glycerin.
Just like Sodium Lactate, Glycerol is also a Humectant. It takes the excess moisture present in the deeper layers of the skin (or even moisture present in the surrounding air) and pulls it towards the outer layers of the skin. It contains antimicrobial qualities as well that keep your skin safe.
Serine is an amino acid that works as a water-binding ingredient. It contains natural moisturizing factors as well as keratin that enhances the moisture building capability of the skin. It acts as an anti-static agent as well that gets rid of (you guessed it) static charge in the skin by adding some more moisture to it.
If you have dry or rough skin, Urea is the perfect ingredient for it. It gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and helping new ones regenerate. When you get rid of dead cells on your face, it opens up the pores and allows more water in. It also helps build up the skin’s natural defense mechanism against harmful chemicals present in the atmosphere as well as in other beauty and skin-care products (which is why knowing ingredients is important).
With its exfoliating, anti-microbial, and of course, hydrating properties, the Piel Hydra Fluid is created as a nutrition booster for your skin. When are you planning to add it to your moisturization routine?
