Boosts skin hydration levels, smooths fine lines and wrinkles and restores a youthful appearance to your skin.
Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in the way your skin looks and functions. It is a major component of the connective tissue matrix in the dermis.
By its nature Hyaluronic acid is a protein that retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water within the extra cellular space, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density.
Skin care products containing hyaluronic acid are often used in conjunction with vitamin C products to assist in effective penetration. Hyaluronic acid (also known as a glycosaminoglycan) occurs naturally (and quite abundantly) in humans and animals, and is found in young skin, other tissues, and joint fluid. It is also a component of the body's connective tissues, and is known to cushion and lubricate.
Hyaluronic acid is known to have antioxidant properties and helps in wound healing. It is used in the treatment of joint pain. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in tissue hydration, lubrication and cellular function.
As you age and your skin is exposed to environmental pollutants and the sun's ultraviolet rays, your cells gradually lose the ability to produce Hyaluronic acid. As the skin ages, your skin tissue becomes dehydrated and the collagen and elastin fibres lose their structure, resulting in a loss of skin volume and formation of facial wrinkles and folds that are common characteristics of aging skin. Your diet and smoking can also affect your body's level of hyaluronic acid.
This serum may be used on any skin type and condition for extra hydration, works great in conjunction with dermabrasion, glycolic or herbal peels, any laser treatments and at home before applying moisturiser (morning and night).
