Why Hyaluronic Acid is so magical for your skin

hyaluronicacidOne amazing fact about Hyaluronic Acid is that it is an humectant, which means each molecule can attract and hold on to 1000 x its own weight in moisture from its surroundings.  It works hard to keep every aspect of skin stable, safeguarded and constantly renewed.

Hyaluronic Acid can therefore enhance moisture levels like no other ingredient.  It revitalises the outer surface layers of the skin, so it looks and feels softer, smoother and radient – instantly improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Introducing Hyaluronic Acid into your topical skin care routine

Hyaluronic acid is incredibly popular and can be found in many skincare products.  To get the hydrating benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, it’s best to choose a moisturising cream, lotion or serum. Look for Hyaluronic Acid or Sodium  Hyaluronate on the product’s ingredient label.

Sodium hyaluronate is a salt derived from Hyaluronic Acid and because of the smaller molecule size, is easily absorbed into the skin.  Ideally the product should contain 1% or higher HA.  Any less, and it’s not likely to have many benefits for your skin.  if the product doesn’t show the percentage of HA, make sure it’s high on the list of ingredients.

Apply Hyaluronic Acid serums after cleansing or washing your face and use a moisturiser over the top to seal it.  For best results, use only one product containing HA at a time and seal with a moisturiser or oil.

Lip Rejuvenation

What happens to lips as we get older?

Whilst lip size and shape are genetically determined, as we age, the decreased production of collagen and elastin molecules and naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid causes lips to loose their volume and become thinner.  This can start to happen as early as the late 20’s and 30’s!

Lifestyle factors can also play a part in ‘premature’ lip thinning, so:

  • Avoid straws and puckering your lips
  • Stay Hydrated
  • Use oil based lip Products
  • Don’t smoke
  • Use a lip stick or lip product with an SPF
  • Include plenty of protein, Vitamin C and Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet.

What else can we do?

Medical options include injectable lip fillers to replace and stimulate the lost Hyaluronic Acid.  The new, advanced filler products are so soft and smooth and consist of natural Hyaluronic Acid and often Lidocaine anaesthetic which numbs the lips as it’s injected.
