Thanks to Oxynergy Paris UK I have been slowly but surely repairing the barrier of my skin. I learnt that that was the most likely reason why my skin had become so sensitive, reactive and dry. Now I’m going to be using the Oxynergy Power Infuse Hyaluronic Acid Serum too.
I have been using their products for about 3 and half months now and my skin, whilst still sensitive, is vastly improved. It still reacts to some products, especially those that contain alcohol but if I have any reactions or irritations, they are far less than before I started using Oxynergy products.

So, in addition to Oxynergy Paris Power Infuse Cushion Foam, Power Infuse Toning Mist and Everlasting Deep Repair Cream, I have now introduced Power Infuse Hyaluronic Acid Serum into my skincare routine.
Power Infuse Hyaluronic Acid Serum
This Power Infuse Hyaluronic Acid Serum is for dry skin. Not only does it provide much-needed, long-lasting hydration, but it also helps to firm the skin AND it even helps to reduce pesky wrinkles.
So what is Hyaluronic Acid?
Well, first off, Hyaluronic Acid is actually a substance that is naturally present in our body. The highest concentration is found in fluids in our eyes and our joints. It is also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate. It’s a gel-like water-holding molecule that is the space filler and cushioning agent in all mammals.
People can take hyaluronic acid for joint disorders, such as osteoarthritis. It can be taken orally or you can actually get injections into the joint by a healthcare professional. Of course, those of us who love our skincare, are most familiar with hyaluronic acid in skincare products.
It’s an ingredient you tend to look for on products that are specifically for dry skin.
Why is hyaluronic acid such a good moisturiser?
The reason hyaluronic acid makes such a good moisturiser is the fact that it helps to retain over 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin. There is no other biological substance that can retain as much water as hyaluronic acid. This, of course, means an increase in smoothness and softening of the skin plus decreased wrinkles. It can also remove waste matter from blood cells where there is little blood circulation. It is often as sought after as Collagen, if not more so.
Whilst the Oxynergy Paris Power Infuse Cushion Foam & Power Infuse Toning Mist, along with the Everlasting Deep Repair Cream help to keep my skin balanced, the Power Infuse Hyaluronic Acid Serum will add hydration and nourish the deeper layers of my skin, the dermis.
This serum will penetrate the junctions of the cells and although any immediate results are superficial, the real benefits start to show after around 4-6 weeks. If the serum replenishes the hyaluronic acid in the junctions of my cells, it will increase the nutrient levels that feed them. Hyaluronic acid helps nutrients flow to the cells. It also has other benefits such as reducing inflammation, plumping the skin, and protecting and smoothing any fine lines.
The Power Infuse Hyaluronic Acid Serum contains 3 types of hyaluronic acid: low, medium and high molecular weight. It can be used as a standalone product under your day cream or night cream. I tend to use it in my evening skincare routine and I particularly love to apply this before using a mask.
This product is also fantastic because it:-
- Does not contain paraffin, silicone, parabens or harmful preservatives.
- Balanced pH.
One to two drops are recommended, depending on how dry your skin is. I use two drops when I use it, applying it with my fingertips and then gently pat it into my skin. This helps the Hyaluronic Acid penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin as far as it can go. I always make sure that my face is fully dry and that the serum has been absorbed by my skin before moving on to the next step in my skincare routine. That usually takes around 3 minutes or so.
For anyone having issues with their skin being overly sensitive and very dry, I cannot recommend these products highly enough. They really do work to balance, hydrate and repair your skin.
