You've probably heard of hyaluronic acid and that's a good thing! But are you using products enriched with hyaluronic acid in your routine?
Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronan or HA) is a biopolymer that occurs naturally in your skin. No, it's not just for surgery!
A natural substance found in the skin
As you have understood, hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by our body. It is contained in various parts of the body such as skeletal tissue, lungs, lips, etc. but the largest part is found in the skin (about 50%)! It is therefore not to be neglected!
Hyaluronic acid can contain up to 1000 times its weight in water, so it plays a key role in skin hydration.
Prevention of aging
No, aging is not bad and there is no miracle cream that removes all wrinkles in one application!
However, many researchers associate skin aging with a decrease in the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin.
As the skin loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid, it becomes increasingly difficult for the skin to stay healthy and youthful looking.
Hyaluronic acid plays a key role in the formation of collagen and elastin. As collagen and elastin levels decrease, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles becomes more prominent. For the same reason, dehydration, sagging and loss of elasticity also make it difficult to maintain healthy, plumped skin.
That's why using products concentrated in hyaluronic acid at a young age helps prevent skin aging by providing the acid it lacks.
Hydration of the skin
Because of its unique ability to retain large amounts of water (up to 1000 times its weight), the optimal amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin is crucial for skin hydration.
Hydrated skin is healthy skin! Our Golden Beauty spray is considered as our most hydrating spray due to its high concentration of hyaluronic acid.
Reduce UV damage
If you use self-tanners, you probably already know a little bit about it! UV rays can be devastating to the skin and cause many complications with long-term exposure.
Studies have shown hyaluronic acid to be beneficial in reducing the damage caused by photoaging of the skin through oxidation.
Healing of the skin
Hyaluronic acid is also known to be beneficial in the treatment of wounds and burns, as it keeps damaged tissue well hydrated. Hyaluronan helps reduce scarring and infection by releasing peptides and creating an environment that enhances tissue repair.
As you can see, hyaluronic acid is magic for the skin, it is even vital! It's very important that you consider incorporating hyaluronic acid-rich products into your routine in order to reap the benefits and keep your skin looking younger.
