When the weather gets hot and humidity is at an all-time high, it can cause your body to become puffy and swollen. While this is an unwanted side-effect of summer weather, you don’t have to suffer.
If you have noticed your face is feeling a little puffy, turn to these effective ingredients that are proven to help inflammation and can help you look and feel your best!
Squalane is a lipid that is naturally created by your skin cells. When you are young, your body produces lots of squalane but starting in your 20s your production begins to slow down. While your body does naturally produce it well into your 30’s and 40’s, you will need a way to deliver squalane to your skin cells, and the best way to do it is with a high-quality plan-derived squalane.
Squalane will help manage inflammation in your skin thanks to its natural compounds and the ability to act as an anti-inflammatory for your skin. It also has powerful anti-aging properties which will help erase the look of lines and wrinkles. If you are using skincare products with squalane, like our Repair & Release Cream, you can expect to see improvements in the puffiness, texture, and look of your skin.
Sea buckthorn is a special type of oil that has some amazing benefits for your skin. While it’s known to have many anti-aging properties, it is also known as one of the best ingredients for repairing and healing damaged, inflamed skin. This ingredient is so powerful and beneficial for your skin that it has been used for centuries to heal a variety of different skin ailments.
When used as an ingredient in your skincare routine, sea buckthorn works to reduce puffiness and swelling of your face making your jawline appear slimmer. It will also hydrate your skin and help increase your production of collagen so that it will help cure wrinkles as it de-puffs your face.
If we had to pick one all-natural ingredient with real superpowers, it would be coconut oil. It can be used for hair, skin, and even to cook with – but its secret power is to help reduce puffiness and inflammation to your skin. When your skin feels puffy, using a hydrating cream formulated with coconut oil will help ensure your skin soaks up all the benefits of this fatty oil and reduces the look of swelling.
Coconut oil is one of the most hydrating skincare ingredients in the world and that’s thanks to medium-chain fatty acids. Coconut oil also possesses antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne and protect your skin from harmful bacteria that could lead to more swelling or redness. With coconut oil, you’ll be nourishing your skin back to beautiful and will feel confident every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror.
