Head-to-Head Comparison: HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum vs. SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
HA7X is the first direct competitor to award-winning HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator by SkinMedica®, a component of Allergan, Inc.
HA7X includes 29 of the same primary ingredients in HA5, including Vitis Flower Stem Cell Extract, Peptide Complexes, and Sea Polysaccharides from French Polynesia.
But we didn't stop there: HA7X includes two additional, cutting-edge hyaluronic technologies (for a total of seven); HA5 only contains five.
HA7X is also the first U.S. product to contain benefits of Gold award-winning Neurophroline™ targeting stress, pollution, and cortisol.
Yet with these new actives, HA7X is about half the price as SkinMedica’s version.
HA7X works for all skin types, and is the perfect complement to any skincare regimen to prevent and combat the signs of aging.

"I don't quite know which of the 10 key ingredients it is that does the job, but whatever it is- it just works. Over the past month I have most definitely noticed a tightening and lifting of my skin that can't be put down to any of the other skincare products that I am using at the moment. My pores have also shrunk noticeably since using this product on a daily basis. My makeup application has also been much improved due to the refined texture and plumpness of my skin. I have also found that when moisturizing after use of the serum, my dry skin seems to absorb my moisturizer better. Again, I don't know why it works and for the sake of being painfully honest, I don't really care. All I care about is that when I stand in front of the mirror and am ready to put on my makeup, I'm actually pleased at what I see staring back at me."

Further, here are some tips and tricks from the American Academy of Dermatology:
Think sun protection
Just a few minutes of sunlight on rosacea-prone skin can lead to uncontrollable flushing and redness. Dermatologists recommend that everyone who has rosacea:
• Apply a gentle, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. A fragrance-free sunscreen that contains zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or both is least likely to irritate your sensitive skin.
• Wear a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors during the day.
• Stay out of the midday sun.
• Seek shade.
If stress causes your rosacea to flare, you can learn to manage it so that it doesn’t trigger a rosacea flare-up. Here are a few ideas:
• Find an activity that relieves your stress and do it often. Common stress busters include tai chi, meditation, or joining a rosacea support group.
• Do something that you enjoy on a daily basis.
• In a stressful moment, take a deep breath, hold it, and exhale slowly.
To avoid a flare-up from heat, dermatologist recommend planning ahead so that you can prevent overheating.
Here are a few things you can do:
• Take warm baths and showers rather than hot ones.
• Dress in layers, so that you can remove clothing if you start to feel overheated.
• Feeling overheated? Drape a cold, wet cloth around your neck. Sip a cold drink.
• Keep cool with a fan or air-conditioning.
• Sit far enough away from fireplaces, heaters, and other heat sources so that you don’t feel the warmth.
Rethink hot beverages
Studies show that the heat from hot beverages causes some people’s rosacea to flare.
If that sounds like you, making a few changes can help you enjoy beverages that most people drink hot.
Try these ideas:
• Drink iced coffee or tea
• Let the beverage cool so that it’s warm or lukewarm.
Observe alcohol’s effects
When it comes to flare-ups from alcohol, red wine may be the biggest culprit. You may be able to reduce flares from alcohol if you:
• Drink white instead of red wine.
• Add soda or lemonade to white wine, beer, and other alcoholic beverages to lessen the amount of alcohol.
• Limit yourself to 1 or 2 drinks, and have a large glass of cold water after each drink.
Not drinking alcohol also works.
