The Skincare Company’s Hydration Booster serum is formulated using some of the most nourishing and regenerative ingredients to help combat the delicate aging process. Coenzyme Q10, also referred to as CoQ10 or ubiquinone, is a vitamin-like compound that occurs naturally in the body. As an antioxidant, it helps to protect skin cells from damage caused by the body’s own free radicals which are excessively generated as we get older.
This post will talk about why your skin and body need this miracle serum and why you should include it in your skincare routine, explain the ingredients, their benefits and explore multiple uses of this product.
There are six main ingredients that create this ultra hydrating serum. Sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and rosehip oil with the active ingredients COQ10 and vitamin A and E. It is paraben free, mineral oil free, SLS free and artificial fragrance free. Firstly, anyone with a nut allergy should not use this serum as it’s base is almond oil.
My favourite uses for the Hydration Booster COQ10 oil:
For smooth and flawless skin
The main ingredient of this serum, sweet almond oil, has a rich source of skin-replenishing ingredients including triglycerides and several fatty acids (oleic, linoleic, and myristic among them). You are possibly already know the health benefits of eating almonds, but did you know that using almond oil as part of your regular skin care regimen has many benefits too? This ingredient has many positive effects on skin health and appearance. Fatty acids in the almond and rosehip oils serve as a natural emollient for the skin, and help to lock in moisture by forming a protective barrier. Emollients are especially effective for conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. This serum is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin, due to almond oil being light and easily absorbed into the skin, making it fantastic for soothing dry, chapped and irritated skin. If you have oily skin, you might feel wary about using any oil on your skin, even if it’s just an ingredient in a face cream. I have good news: the fatty acids in almond oil actually help dissolve the sebum that your skin produces, creating cleaner skin and pores, and helping to get rid of acne. Sweet almond oil works as a natural face exfoliator to help remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of healthier skin.
In fact, sweet almond oil is regarded as one of the best massage oils. Combined with other active ingredients in this luxurious product, the body will benefit all over. When rubbed into the skin, it gets fully absorbed, also making it suitable for after bath application. To enhance absorption, warm the oil to body temperature before application. This oil has a slightly nutty, rosy smell, which most people find pleasant and relaxing.
For cleansing the skin and removing makeup
The latest makeup bloggers and social media trends, state that the cosmetic uses for facial oils are really never ending. COQ10 serum is light in texture, and can easily penetrate deep into the skin, softening and dislodging the dirt and debris accumulated in the skin pores and hair follicles. This prevents blackheads and acne. It is excellent for removing makeup, and leaves your skin pleasantly hydrated without the need for applying more moisturisers. Apply the serum on the face, leave on for a minute and wipe off with a cotton round.
Run out of body scrub? It is easy to make a natural facial scrub with the Hydration Booster Serum and little bit of fine sugar. Mix them together and apply to the face, working in circles to gently lift off grime and dead cells. Wash it off with water. Repeat it every week for beautiful, radiant skin.
To relieve skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis
These problems are caused by the body’s own reactions to external and internal triggers, and can leave the skin dry and itchy. When the skin is broken, it makes way for bacterial and fungal infections that can complicate the management of these chronic conditions. The best thing you can do is to keep the skins integrity soft and hydrated to reduce itching. Almond oil helps with this. Also, jojoba oil forms a long-lasting protective layer over the damaged skin and helps to prevent moisture loss and the entry of allergens and microbes.
To reduce signs of aging
Structural protein in the skin called collagen is behind a youthful look. Collagen forms an even layer under the skin and acts as a good padding that keeps the skin supple. Fine wrinkles start to appear as we age because of thinning of the skin and unevenness in the collagen padding underneath. The active ingredients in the COQ10 Hydration Booster Serum slow down the deterioration of the collagen layer, repairs damage already done to the collagen layer and stimulates the formation of new collagen.
For shiny, healthy hair
The scalp and the hair also can benefit from the use of Hydration Booster Serum. The glands in the scalp produce an oily substance that forms a natural protective coating on each strand of hair. But hair can become too dry and brittle from frequent use of shampoos that strip the hair of these natural oils. This results in breakages and split ends that reduce the length of the hair. Restore the protective oil layer by applying the serum to your hair right after washing it. Remove excess moisture with a towel, rub the oil between your palms and run your hand through the entire length of the hair to coat evenly. Leave the hair to air dry naturally, combing occasionally with a wide-toothed comb to separate the hair. This treatment gives hair a nice sheen, besides making it manageable and tangle-free. Thank me later!
For strong, healthy nails
If your nails are thin and chip off easily, what you need is a regular oil treatment. If you already have the Hydration Booster in your arsenal, this serum is rich in zinc, the deficiency of which causes brittle nails and white spots. The oil also contains B-complex vitamins and iron that also help improve nail health. Apply a drop of oil on the nail and rub into the cuticle. Make it a daily or weekly habit!
