Do You Know What is Hyaluronic Acid Is?
If you haven’t already come across it chances are you will soon, Hyaluronic acid is the ingredient taking a front row seat in our beauty products. Despite the word ‘acid ‘ being a potential turn off to consumers, it is a natural ingredient making big claims in the beauty industry.
What does it do
Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin for a more youthful appearance. Aged skin is exaggerated by a lack for water in skin meaning it can look sallow and show fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is unique in its ability to hold 1000 times its own weight in water, in fact no other biological substance holds more water giving it unbelievable hydrating qualities plumping up the skin for a more lustrous appearance and with it’s acid base it is even suitable for relieving dryness in acne prone skin.
The increased moisture creates firmer looking skin by increasing the skin’s elasticity, this improves the tone and overall texture of the skin. Repeated use of Hyaluronic acid will continue to improve the appearance and condition of the skin.
What is it?
Hyaluronic acid is a liquid carbohydrate that is found naturally in our bodies cushioning our joints, filling the eye and hydrating the skin and hair. The smooth complexions of elderly Japanese men and women has been attributed to their tofu and soya based diets, which has been found to trigger the body to produce more Hyaluronic acid. As we age our bodies produce less Hyaluronic Acid causing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in our skin.
How do we use it?
If you look at the ingredients of anti ageing skincare products the chances are they will contain an amount of Hyaluronic acid! The higher up the ingredients list they feature generally the greater the quantity, this substance is most effective when left on the skin to do it work, so is most effective in serums or moisturisers. It has also almost taken over the use of collagen in injectable facial and lip fillers as it has proved far longer lasting for the client.
