Best anti aging products - Hyaluronic Acid for the skin
Posted on November 15 2014
Named as one of the best hydrating and wrinkle plumping ingredients on the market today, Hyaluronic acid is getting a lot of attention!
So, what is Hyaluronic acid for the skin?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance of the body and is found in the spaces between your skin cells - where it provides moisture, elasticity, plumpness and firmness to the skin.
It regulates cell renewal, lubricates connective tissue and maintains the skins moisture and elasticity.
As babies, we are born with naturally high levels of Hyaluronic acid and unfortunately over time our bodies produce less, significantly around the ages of 35-40.
When Hyaluronic Acid levels are depleted, skin can appear dehydrated/dull and lose elasticity, which in turn- pronounces fine lines and wrinkles!
Hyaluronic Acid skin care holds up to 1000 times in weight in water - now that’s some serious hydration!
The benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for the skin are:
- Highly effective humectant- an ingredient that holds moisture in the skin
- Boosts elasticity and collagen synthesis
- Reverses free radical damage
- Healing and soothing skin/burns
- Plumps the skin, visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Prevents premature ageing
For best results - use Hyaluronic Acid cream or serums on slightly damp skin and then “seal” it in with a layer of good moisturiser!
Some skin’s can feel dry and taut in high humidity locations, or when a moisturiser is not applied over the top – always follow the instructions for best results and ensure you are applying serums and Hyaluronic Acid creams to a clean, exfoliated skin for maximum skin absorption.
No products- no matter how good- will ever do their job efficiently if they are sitting on dead skin cells!
