Hyaluronic Acid: A Boost of Hydration for All Ages
We cannot stress it enough: hydration is essential if you are to have beautiful skin!
Water is very important for the epidermis to maintain the glow, smoothness, and elasticity of your skin. When you moisturise, you are helping the skin's cells to regenerate as well as restore their hydrolipidic balance.
As the skin's protective barrier starts to weaken, it loses even more water and becomes dehydrated: it feels tight, itchy, is rougher, and looks drabber.
Often, what we consider to be small wrinkles are dehydration lines, which can creep in no matter your age. Even in younger skin, lack of water can affect the particularly delicate skin around the eye and cause it to crease. So, if you want to slow down the onset of wrinkles, you need to start paying serious attention to moisturising your skin from as early as your 20s.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural agent found in the epidermal layer of the skin. It plays a vital role in preserving the skin's tone and elasticity and also maintaining its hydration. It's the main reason why younger skin is naturally plump, full, and smooth.
As time ticks on, starting with your twenties, its presence in the body gradually decreases, notably because of the free radicals (sunlight, pollution) that we're exposed to.
Beauty products are definitely on the right track by introducing hyaluronic acid as one of their ingredients. Thanks to its unique structure, it works a bit like a sponge, soaking up to 1000x its weight in water! As it's neither fatty nor occlusive, it is also a great alternative for problematic younger skin that needs hydration but without the side-effects of spots.
Hyaluronic acid is, therefore, great for facial moisturising and is perfect for any dehydrated or lacklustre skin that wants to get ready to take on the winters.
The L’Oréal Paris Skincare Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum can provide instant relief to dry skin. This serum penetrates deep into the skin to hydrate it immediately and returns a plump, youthful feel to the skin that leaves it firmer yet more elastic. The lightweight gel serum is absorbed quickly and does not leave behind a tacky residue. You can even wear it as a primer or for a dewy boost of hydration under makeup.
It can be applied to the face, eyes, and neck and is suitable for all skin types, i.e. dry, oily, combination, sensitive, as well as mature skin.
