There’s nothing more frustrating than dry, irritated, and inflamed skin. Whether you’re prone to acne, rosacea, or just have skin that feels like it needs a huge drink of water, it can be a struggle to find a solution. It’s like your skin is throwing a toddler-level tantrum and there’s no possible way to get it to chill out. That’s where Lime Aid comes in.
It’s basically a “chill pill” for your skin, but it’s a moisturizer with medicated ingredients that will actually absorb and work like it’s supposed to. Unlike most hydrating products, Lime Aid contains hyaluronic acid in its chirally correct form, AKA the only form that will actually absorb and penetrate into the skin to moisturize, plump, and soothe.
Let’s break it down from a chemical standpoint. The molecule sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), like all molecules, is composed of a left side and a right side. Each side is important for the structure and function of the molecule itself, but only one side positively reacts with our skin. In this case, the left side of sodium hyaluronate is the only part of the molecule that our skin is able to absorb. That’s why we ensure that we use Sodium Hyaluronate (L), (L stands for left) in Lime Aid.
If we didn’t, the hyaluronic acid would just sit on top of your skin and add little to no hydration. Obviously, that wouldn’t really make sense for a moisturizer. Well, get this: most products that say they include sodium hyaluronate don’t actually take the extra step of proper molecular formulation. So you might think you’re getting all that good hyaluronic acid deep into your skin, but you’re actually just placing it on the top layer, and then washing it off at the end of the day. Makes sense why all of these “moisturizing” products aren’t helping to calm your skin, huh?
But, proper hyaluronic acid isn’t the only thing your face needs to combat redness and irritation. Typically, your skin gets that way from bacteria, microbial activity, or external forces like pollution. That’s why it’s crucial to protect your skin, and stop irritation and inflammation before it has a chance to wreak havoc. So, we formulated Lime Aid with the prevention ingredients Limonene and Totarol.
Limonene is an anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal extract. While totarol is an anti-oxidant with anti-microbial activity. The two medicated ingredients combined make the perfect recipe to reduce redness, acne lesions, and inflammation.
All of these powerful ingredients come together to create the most calming, hydrating, and action-packed moisturizer. Lime Aid is excellent for all skin types, and you’ll fall in love with how rich and luxurious it is without feeling greasy. Oh, and did we mention it smells like yummy fresh citrus?
