Everyone already knows about Microcurrent for its botox-like effects, earning itself the name "non-invasive facelift". But what does Microcurrent do to hydrate the skin? We answer that question in today's blog!
Hydration: The Missing Ingredient For Aging Skin.
The closest thing to a non-invasive facelift is unmistakably microcurrent treatment. In a nutshell, microcurrent is best known for re-educating facial muscles to tone, lift, and contour sagging skin. This is why celebrities like Sofia Coppola and even Madonna use microcurrent as a part of their beauty routines.
But beyond toning and firming the skin, did you know microcurrent has other, amazing benefits for the skin that go unnoticed? As it turns out, microcurrent is actually a great way to maintain and improve your skin's hydration, one of the most common pitfalls of aging skin if not addressed properly.
Wait... what's the big deal about hydration?
At around the age of 35 is when most people begin to notice the aging process, but did you know it's also when the activity of our skin cells begins to change?
As we mature, our skin naturally loses moisture and elasticity through a decrease in hyaluronic acid production. You may have heard of hyaluronic acid; it's a popular skincare ingredient, but it's also naturally produced by the body.
When our body's production of hyaluronic acid slows down, our skin begins to lose moisture, and it becomes dry and thin. This makes it susceptible to things like sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles.
How Microcurrent Improves Hydration to Keep the Skin Healthy.
In simpler terms, microcurrent helps water-based products (like hyaluronic acid) penetrate deeper into the skin, improving hydration and product absorption. This is because the electrical stimulation of the microcurrent mimic's the body's natural current.
One of the best things you can do to combat signs of aging in the skin is to improve your skin's hydration, and microcurrent does just that while also giving you the toning and lifting effects you already know and love.
We all love microcurrent because of how easy and effective it is to tone, lift, and contour the skin. However, one of its most overlooked benefits is the way in which it improved your skin's hydration.
Proper skin hydration and adequate protection from the sun are two of the best things you can do not only aid against signs of aging in the skin, but other skin conditions like acne.
When you add microcurrent to your skincare, you're getting more than just the toning and lifting that gets all the buzz, you're also improving your skin's hydration by improving the absorption of products in your skin's dermis.
