Hyaluronic Acid

SKIN PLUMPING AND HYDRATING.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that occurs naturally throughout our bodies but which becomes concentrated as we age. In essence, it's a sponge holding vast amounts of water within its structure. It can hold up to 1000 times its molecular weight in water and, as such, plays an important role in the hydration process for our skin cells. It is able to absorb large amounts of water which helps deliver moisture and hydration to the skin cells inside our dermis.

In Skincare products, Hyaluronic acid (HA) has been used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, moisturise dry skin and restore elasticity, firmness and bounce to sagging skin, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

As we age, our skin produces less hyaluronic acid, so adding it back into the skin through skincare treatments will help plump up fine lines and wrinkles, providing a smoother complexion.

Over time, your body’s stores of hyaluronic acid decline. Age is one reason, but genetics and sun exposure also play a role. For this reason, Hyaluronic acid (HA) is often offered as an injectable treatment for the face, where it helps add volume and restore lost structure to your skin. Skincare products containing hyaluronic acid can be used topically and will help hydrate and moisturise the skin while enhancing its overall texture.

A study conducted by doctors at Trinity College in Dublin found that women who used moisturising cream with hyaluronic acid over five years had fewer wrinkles than those who used regular moisturisers. In fact, adding Hyaluronic acid (HA) to your everyday skincare routine makes wrinkles look up to 50 per cent shallower after eight weeks of use. Skincare products containing Hyaluronic Acid helps to keep the skin cells hydrated and well protected from dryness.
