It seems that everyone is talking about dry skin. Whether they have returned from holiday and are experiencing the feeling of ‘parched skin’, or that dehydrated skin is just their typical skin type. As a dedicated skincare retailer, we make it our mission to try and find the most proven, largely raved about products to share with you.
After all, there’s nothing more trusting than hearing and seeing results from real life people – agree?
When SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator launched on SkinStore, we had a little look at what the nation were saying. Believe us when we say that this product has had a lot of positive reviews from a lot of happy, loyal customers. So what makes this product a firm favorite for hydrating the skin? Just how well does it work on dry skin? We share our findings with you below:
This key product aims to accelerate skin hydration to immediately smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while supporting skin’s ability to replenish its own Hyaluronic Acid. You’ll hear us talk a lot about HA on the blog, and that’s because its a real key element in skincare. Our skin naturally produces it, but once we leave our 20’s behind, skin can lose up to 50% of it (especially when sitting in the 40-50 gap).
As we age, daily environmental stressors along with natural aging deplete the amount of HA, leading to rougher, drier skin prone to wrinkles and fine lines.
The video below is a short and snappy watch which simplifies the science behind how this popular hydrator works to deliver exactly what it promises:
How Does It Work?
The NEW SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator is the first and only hydrator that provides immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while supporting the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own HA. Here’s a few facts about the formula:
HA5 differentiates itself from other topical HA products that only moisturize the surface of the skin temporarily, thus providing the feeling of hydration.
five different forms of HA for an instantly smoother appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and continuous hydration for up to 8 hours
Powered by VITISENSCE ™ Technology, a blend exclusive to SkinMedica®, HA5 harnesses potent antioxidants to support long-term skin health
Proprietary antioxidant stem cell extract from the Vitis Flower

We’re huge fans of SkinMedica, and along with this excellent hydrator, we’re also fast becoming regular users of the TNS Essential Serum, and the TNS Recovery Complex, comprised of natural growth factors (in which it actually promotes the growth of newer, healthier skin). There will be a much more personalized review of these two hero products coming up in a blog post soon, so stay tuned!

Do you ever feel like your skincare products have reached their effectiveness limit? Like your skin has adjusted to them, so the benefits seem less and less pronounced? The solution is simple: exfoliate! Now before you think we’re suggesting harsh face scrubs, we’re talking about chemical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliation utilizes primarily alpha and beta-hydroxy acids (think glycolic, salicylic or lactic acid) to gently slough away dead skin cells and clear your pores.
Turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie are great, but saving on all your favorite beauty and skincare brands is definitely what we’re grateful for this year.
