You are probably familiar with electrolytes and their function in the body, but they have now become the latest buzzword in skincare.
These minerals can be found naturally in the body and are essential to maintain muscle function, hydration and other key processes. Primary electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium conduct electricity when they’re mixed with water, and the charge triggers a chain reaction which enables cells to create energy, balance PH levels and regulate water.
So what role do they play in skincare?
Calcium and potassium together promote a strong epidermal barrier, improve fatty acid content, and promote cell regeneration. Electrolytes dissolve to support a healthy fluid balance and transfer nutrients into cells whilst removing waste. All of these components help promote healthy glowing skin.
When there is a short supply of minerals within the body, fluid balance becomes compromised which in turn dehydrates and dries the skin from within.
“The outermost layer of the skin contains interactive substances that help to repair and regenerate to keep the skin smooth, hydrated and healthy. These components include amino acids, peptides and minerals which together are called the Natural Moisture Factor (NMF). Supplementing with ionic minerals helps to strengthen the NMF and support a strong epidermal barrier,” says Kathryn Danzey, founder of Rejuvenated.
Water alone only contains a small amount of the minerals needed for optimum hydration, so Rejuvenated have come up with the H30 Hydration supplement. The natural drink combines ionic electrolytes with hyaluronic acid and trans-resveratrol to optimise cellular metabolism. The formula also contains calcium which supports healthy skin functions including sebum regulation, lipid barrier formula, and cell turnover.
