5 Ingredients to Calm Down Stressed Out Skin

When your skin is inflamed and red from breakouts or sunburn, you can feel miserable. Hot, dry skin craves healing and soothing care. The ingredients you select for your skincare products will make all the difference in nourishing and repairing your skin, so choose wisely. Here are some of the most beneficial natural elements that can help your irritated skin:

Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that neutralizes damaging free radicals that occur from UV exposure.

A powerful anti-aging ingredient, it promotes collagen production which can diminish the appearance of fine lines and firm skin. It also helps inhibits melanin production which can even skin tone.

However, it is important to use Vitamin C is potent doses. Make sure that the Vitamin C Anti-Aging serum that you are using has at least 10% Vitamin C. MOOD's ELEVATE Anti-Aging Serum has 15% Vitamin C for optimal results.

Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by our bodies, but as we age, its production slows down.

A humectant, it draws moisture to the tissue, giving it the appearance of supple and glowing. The more layers of tissue it reaches, the better it moisturizes skin. 

Many serums only contain one weight of hyaluronic acid, which typically remains on the surface of the skin. MOOD's serums contain triple-weight hyaluronic acid, which permeates to the three layers of tissue, thoroughly moisturizing it.

Vitamin B3, used in the form of Niacinimide, works hand in hand with hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture and therefore, improve the skin’s texture and appearance. Niacinamide builds keratin, a protein that is responsible for making skin firm. It can help skin create a lipid barrier to keep moisture in, particularly helpful for aging skin. One of its most powerful strengths is its ability to reduce inflammation and ease redness from acne, sunburns or other problematic skin issues. Plus, Niacinimide helps regulate the amount of oil (sebum) produced by the sebaceous glands, which helps resolve and prevent breakouts.

Vitamin E is known as the "worker Vitamin" as it helps the other ingredients do their jobs. It promotes cellular restoration and healing while building the skin barrier function. Skin repair is synonymous with Vitamin E as it helps cells impacted by sun damage, acne, scars or burns. Because Vitamin E is an antioxidant, it helps prevent and resolve oxidative damage to cells by neutralizing free radicals. Its moisturizing and healing benefits should put it at the top of the list of ingredients to seek out for problematic skin.

Finally, lavender is an essential skin care ingredient, as long as it is of therapy-grade quality. An anti-inflammatory for skin, it also speeds the recovery of wounds and burns, due to its strong antibacterial properties.

Used topically, it can lessen oxidative stress in the skin. The calming scent has been used for ages in aromatherapy to help with anxiety and stress.
