Our skin is the largest organ in our body and is often faced with so many external factors that test its limits. The skin works as an insulating shield, protecting our body from heat, sun rays, and chemicals. Our skin is also responsible for converting Vitamin D into beneficial chemicals to help build calcium in our bones.

But when we stop caring for our skin – by skipping sunscreen or even sleep – you may find dire signs that our skin is trying to tell you. Dry skin, check. Under eyes, check. Dull complexion, check.

A sure way to reboot your skin is to get enough rest and sleep and slather on some skincare to pack on some hydration. That’s self-care for you.

Some of these beauty products are packed with working ingredients such as natural cellulose, glycerin and hyaluronic acid to help lock moisture so your skin will be hydrated and glowing.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by our body to retain moisture. It is found commonly in our skin, connective tissue and eyes. Natural cellulose is known to contain strong humectant properties, which helps to increase the amount of moisture in the skin. The added glycerin ingredient comes in to remove grime and dirt and give that overall glowing effect on your skin. Oh, and it doubles up as a makeup remover as well.

As an added precaution, you should always use sunscreen after using products that contain hyaluronic acid.
