Skin Talk: Hyaluronic Acid
New Year, let’s talk skin. I’ve gotten several questions on what is the best skin products for me? What is the difference between them? Do I really need to start using this at my age? Is it too late for me to start using this? I’ve decided to launch a Skin Series and discuss some important “skin talk” to help educate what helps with what, and how/when you should use what. Let’s begin with Hyaluronic Acid. I will preface by saying, if you see a dermatologist please ask them for advice before switching up a skincare routine or your regular esthetician.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring humectant that draws moisture from its surroundings and can be found in hydrating serums and moisturizers.
What does hyaluronic acid do for skin? Hyaluronic acid hydrates—and actually attracts water to—the surface of the skin. The result? Skin that feels plump, with a visible reduction of fine lines. See what hyaluronic acid creams and hyaluronic acid serums you can add to your skincare routine!
How do I use it?
Hyaluronic acid is a versatile ingredient that can be used day and night—just follow the directions on the packaging.
What can I pair it with?
The perfect complement to hyaluronic acid is a great moisturizer—it doubles down on the dewy look by locking in hydration.
Anything I shouldn’t pair it with?
No, hyaluronic acid is a great addition to any skincare routine.
Are there any potential side effects?
Don’t let the word “acid” scare you—hyaluronic acid creams and serums are unlikely to irritate your skin.
Establish a routine. Once you find the right formula for your skin, use it consistently to see results.
Layer on a moisturizer. This essential step nourishes and balances skin so it doesn’t overproduce oil. Plus, it seals in hydration.
Say yes to SPF. Protect your skin against harmful UV rays every single day—it’s a crucial part of a healthy routine.

This unique concentrated solid melts into skin to lock in moisture. As you can see it's great to use on both my skin and Ralph’s paws.

Options to Consider when insuring your small home business
Edited By: Candace M. Bates
More than half of America’s businesses are home-based. But setting up headquarters in your home does not mean your homeowners insurance will adequately protect your operation.
A typical homeowners policy covers around $2,500 of coverage for business property. This will usually cover equipment, but it will not extend liability insurance in the event that you are liable or negligent for something pertaining to your business.
1.Adding an “in-home business policy” provides more comprehensive coverage for business equipment and liability than a homeowner’s insurance endorsement.
2.A business insurance policy will cover you for home-based, business related activities that extends your liability should you be responsible for an accident.
3. A “non-tenant” business liability policy is an option for Artisan and Service Contractors that do work outside of their home for their business (i.e., painters, plumbing, photographers, bakeries).
Making sure that you are properly equipped with the right tools to be successful is important when starting any small business. Providing customers with the appropriate data to help them make the best decisions for their business while becoming a new entrepreneur is vital. This is a huge step, and one should not feel like they need to make it alone. Ask your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Candace Bates; She and her team are readily available to assist you!
