What is Hyaluronic Acid and Why You Need It Now?

Applying acid to your skin doesn’t sound like a great idea does it? But in the case of Hyaluronic Acid it really, really is.

    Your body naturally produces Hyaluronic Acid (commonly referred to as HA) as it is essential for skin, joint and eye health. It is a humectant, which means it has the ability to bind to and retain water molecules, basically, locking in hydration.

Why add more HA to your skin if you are already producing it? Due to free radical damage like oxidative stress, UV exposure and even aging the skin produces less HA than it needs. This results in dryer, duller skin and can speed up the rate in which wrinkles are formed.

    Topically adding HA to your skin has been shown to moisturize the skin from a cellular level resulting in softer, plumper and more radiant skin.

Hyaluronic Acid can be used in skincare in different molecular forms. Larger molecules have a more dramatic effect on the surface level, leaving skin with a velvety smooth finish. Whilst smaller molecules are able to get deep within the skin's surface to add moisture to the skin's cells having an antiaging and health boosting effect on the skin's surface.

Why do you need it?

  •     Hyaluronic Acid is great for all skin types - oily, dry, aging and even sensitive.
  •     It helps to slow down free radical damage, preventing premature aging of the skin.
  •     Skin looks and feels great after using it.
  •     It can actually have a long term effect on your skin's health resulting in naturally glowing and vibrant skin.
