Every skincare addict is familiar with this ingredient found in moisturizers and serums: hyaluronic acid. One might ask, why would you put acid on your face? Despite its terrifying name, it won’t burn your skin. On the contrary, this ingredient has been used to heal burns, wounds, and skin ulcers.
Hyaluronic acid is commonly found in everyday skincare products. If you pull a moisturizer out of your bathroom counter, you might find it in the list of ingredients. In fact, your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid to help repair skin damage or to act as a lubricant for your joints.
Why are skincare brands obsessed with hyaluronic acid?
Simply because this ingredient has shown significant results in eliminating fine lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. To demonstrate, Secret Strips is the perfect example of how to efficiently use hyaluronic acid in skincare products.
The hyaluronic acid essence included in the Secret Strips set is applied in areas where there is visible wrinkles and fine lines. This kit contains several strips for facial zones prone to wrinkling such as the forehead, nasolabial and the under-eye area.
After application, the strips are then placed on top of the treated areas to prevent dirt or external stressors from contaminating the hyaluronic acid. Normal face masks ask to remove the product within 15-20 minutes, but you can keep the strips for as long as you like with Secret Strips.
Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in moisturizers because its ability to retain moisture can keep your face hydrated for long periods of time. This ingredient also provides some plump and elasticity to your skin, giving your face a more youthful and replenished look. Therefore, the longer you keep the strips on, the better the results.
However, hyaluronic acid can dehydrate your skin when it is used in a dry environment. Because it absorbs any present moisture and only penetrates the epidermis, hyaluronic acid might prevent your face from hydration.
To prevent dry skin, Secret Strips uses water microcrystalline gel in their strips to push the moisture toward your face and restore the hydration your skin needs. This component allows the masks to last for hundreds of hours before drying up and completely prevents the strips from budging.
Because of its gel texture and honeycomb elastic fiber net embedded in the masks, Secret Strips can mold into your skin and ensure maximum coverage.
