What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid for our skin?

Mirror, mirror on the wall… how to preserve youth?

Unfortunately, the mirror doesn’t reply but reveals the truth: our skin isn’t getting younger. Gravity mercilessly pulls it down, the skin gets flabby and grey, wrinkles and discolourations appear. We start thinking about phoning a plastic surgeon. However, before you let the surgeon cut your skin and deprive you of life savings – try a natural and safe remedy which noticeably slows down effects of ageing.

Hyaluronic acid. What does this slightly frightening name conceal?

Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our body. It is responsible for keeping firmness and proper moisture. Its amount diminishes with the passage of time. As a consequence, the skin gets flabby and loses its elasticity and bounce. Therefore, if you replenish hyaluronic acid, you will largely slow down effects of skin ageing.

Hyaluronic acid has been one of the ingredients of anti-wrinkle creams for many years. Keep in mind, however, that drugstore products can have very little amount of the acid. A jar of cream is filled with various substances – sometimes they are cheaper ones, often comedogenic parabens and other clogging substances which don’t make your skin more beautiful.

Using a pure hyaluronic acid is the perfect choice. It will be much more effective and you will see the results sooner than you think. Pure hyaluronic acid (usually in form of a powder that needs to be mixed with distilled water) is available at drug stores and healthy food stores. Hyaluronic acid should be applied before going to sleep – sunlight may cause irritation. During the day, you can use it as a base for a light moisturiser. It is enough to gently massage 3-4 drops in face skin.

Hyaluronic acid can also be applied as an under-eye cream – this natural product will be far more effective than most drugstore cosmetics. In order to intensify its action, you can add it to a face toner or micellar water. A few drops of pure acid will be enough. Its concentration cannot exceed 20%.

You can combine hyaluronic acid with some natural oil and massage your face with the mixture once a week – it will work as a beautifying ritual. We recommend nourishing and rejuvenating oils: argan oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, rose oil and raspberry oil.
