Annet's Blog: Hyaluronic Acid 101

23rd February 2017

 

 

Hyaluronic Acid has seen quite a resurgence of late and is a key ingredient for helping skin remain hydrated and plumped. Of course, this then supports a more youthful-looking complexion as a dry skin will only emphasize lines and wrinkles. But why is it so popular over other ingredients and what does it do? When we think of hydration, we often think about drinking more water because the skin is the first place dehydration will show. However, we all know what a challenge it can be to drink the right amount of water and quite frankly it’s not enough, especially when we spend a high proportion of our time in dry or low humidity, heated indoor environments. Applying products which contain Hyaluronic Acid can help you to boost the water quotient in your skin and help it to look, smooth, more radiant, and healthy.

 6 reasons why we love Hyaluronic Acid:

  • It provides instant improvement to your skin's appearance and texture
  • It holds 1000 times its weight in moisture
  • It attracts moisture to your skin while also forming a mesh over it to prevent trans-epidermal water loss
  • It smooths visible lines to also improve the appearance of crêpey, dehydrated skin
  • It’s lightweight so doesn’t overload oily skin and is great for every skin type
  • It can be used in liquid serums, gel masques, creams, you name it!

Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the skin but with time, due to the ageing process, production decreases. So there’s no time like the present to start using it! ELEMIS Hydra-Boost Serum is the perfect way to incorporate Hyaluronic Acid into your everyday skin routine. It contains a low molecular weight form of Hyaluronic Acid which penetrates deeper into the skin. Not only does it contain this skin-quenching ingredient but it also contains superbotanical Néré Seed. This miraculous extract supports the skin’s own Hyaluronic Acid as well as Aquaporin 3 (another naturally occurring hydrator) to help form transportation channels and mini reservoirs in the skin. Essentially creating an irrigation system for the skin, this ensures even distribution of hydration and maintains all-day moisturization.

 

Ready to give your skin a drink? Hydra-Boost Serum is clinically proven to increase hydration by 64% and when Hydra-Boost Serum and Hydra-Boost Day Cream are used together, they are clinically proven to increase hydration by 77%. This boosts the efficacy of the Day Cream alone by 65%*. And while you’re sleeping and your skin is busy working on repair and regeneration, why not add Hydra-Nourish Night Cream to your routine?
