Ingredient Spotlight: Hyaluronic Acid
You might think Hyaluronic Acid sounds like something that you'd find in a mechanic's shop rather than your beauty cabinet. But, despite the unapproachable name, this ingredient is one of the holy grails for keeping skin supple and youthful.
Here's How It Works:
Hyaluronic Acid is a structural component of skin and is found in connective tissue throughout the body. What makes it so special is it has the ability to hold a greater capacity of moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer (a large molecule made up of a string of smaller molecules). So what does this mean for your skin? Well, as we age our skin loses moisture (note: this is different then having oily or dry skin, you can still lose moisture and have an oily complexion as you age). This moisture loss at a deeper tissue level causes skin to start having the tell-tale signs of aging: fine lines, dull complexion, loss of firmness. In addition, skin ailments like acne, rosacea, and sun exposure can weaken our skin's outer barrier (outer layers of the skin) causing an acceleration of aging. Hyaluronic Acid helps skin retain its moisture even down to the deeper layers (dermis) while strengthening the skin's outer barrier, which leads to softer, firmer and more even toned skin. And if you weren't already convinced, Hyaluronic Acid provides antioxidant defense against free-radicals and inflammation.
If healthy, glowing, youthful skin is your goal, then Hyaluronic Acid is a must-have in your skincare regime. Find it in the Rose Revival Cream and Youth Glow Preventive Serum, along with the best skin regenerating ingredients nature has to offer!
