Our last article dealt with skin care in autumn and the importance of hydrating dry skin due to the new season. For this reason, we decided to give some more insight into Hyaluronic Acid and why it will soon be available as a new product in our store!
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
First of all, it is a molecule that occurs naturally both in your skin and in the connective tissue of your body. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide that occurs in the human body.
Hyaluronic Acid remains one of the most popular skin care ingredients/products of our time. All this is due to its immense hydrating potential. It can absorb up to 500 times its weight in water. Every time you hydrate your skin, it's a very good thing. Most visible signs of aging are partly due to dehydrated skin. So, if you have moisturized plump skin, these signs of aging are less visible and the skin looks healthier. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in this.
BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID
Hyaluronic acid is amazingly capable of binding with water molecules, making it a key factor in maintaining skin moisture. Lack of moisture is one of the main causes of skin aging, which is why this ingredient is a must when it comes to repairing your skin's moisture barrier.
Main benefits of using Hyaluronic Acid:
It Plumps Fine Lines and works great on wrinkles
The aging process and chronic exposure to the sun and the environment worsen the natural Hyaluronic Acid production, resulting in thinner dermis, dryness, lighter bruising and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As a moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid is able to absorb and retain water in the skin, which contributes to hydration and thus to the plumpness of the skin. When Hyaluronic Acid is used as part of a skincare routine, this moisturizing ability helps to immediately improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It super hydrates the Skin
The way it hydrates so efficiently, without the use of heavy creams and oils, means it is perfect for people who are prone to breakouts or oiliness. That is why it's a perfect skin care ingredient for the summer and colder months. It is able to attract moisture to the skin without other ingredients clogging the pores or creating an excessive surface shine.
It repairs skin cells
Wound healing relies on Hyaluronic Acid to allow the cells to multiply and penetrate the wound to begin the formation of new skin.
Besides that it is also very fast absorbing, non-irritating and available in multiple forms.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT CONCENTRATION?
You will find products that claim to be made of 75% or even 99% hyaluronic acid? They are not! If the solution contains more than 4% sodium hyaluronate, it can actually dry out your skin. If a product was actually made from 90% Hyaluronic Acid, it would be a salt stone. The industry standard for hyaluronic acid starts at 1% and goes up to 3%.
HOW TO USE IT?
In general, hyaluronic acid is safe for all skin types, but it is especially helpful for people with dry skin. Hyaluronic acid can be used twice daily topically, morning and evening during your skincare routine.
