Hydration for Your Skin
Good things come in small packages. At my last visit to my favorite day spa my aesthetician turned me onto to Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel ($43.20), a small vial that seemed, well, like no big deal. Well let me just tell you that this is one very huge deal packaged up in a tiny little vial. It all started because I had some really dry skin on my face. She thought it might help to clear that up. So it tried it, and it did not disappoint. So I began to wonder what else this magical elixir could do. After getting a little too hands-on with a blemish I applied a little Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel for a few nights in a row and not only was there was no more redness, there was no sign of a scar. This stuff works wonders, I thought. Let me just tell you that this powerful gel, formulated with hyaluronic acid, can be used directly on your skin (avoid eye contact) or mixed with your regular moisturizer to stretch it out a little - it's like an extra hand in keeping the wrinkles at bay. As busy moms, we need all the help we can get from the few beauty steps we're able to perform daily and this, dear mommies, is worth its weight in gold!
