Can you recall something about it from your studies from biology? Maybe it has to do with hydration but you really have no idea what it is actually …. and especially what it is for? Well, it is worthwhile you experience the effects of hyaluronic acid on your own skin, especially when you are over 30!
Hyaluronic Acid – Absolutelly Natural!
Hyaluronic acid is familiar to our body. Furthermore! It is actually an important carbohydrate component of our body, that plays an essential role in providing the flexibility and lubrication of cartilage, tendons and other connective tissues.
Unfortunately, in our twenties, the high dose of hyaluronic acid we are born with begins to vanish. By the age of forty we only have half of what we had at birth, while at the age of sixty we only have 10 percent left. It is no coincidence that we start to have more problems with our joints and skin elasticity at the age of 30-40. Still, hyaluronic acid heals wounds faster, reduces wrinkles, and also regenerates joints.
Did you know that you can help keep your hyaluron levels up with your eating habits? The best sources are meat and bone soups, jelly, but citrus fruits, cabbage, red fruits, sweet potatoes, bananas and even red wine contain high levels of hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluron Serum Used in Cosmetics Made of?
Most often, the hyaluronic acid you want to use is extracted from cockscomb, joints and eyeballs of cattles, as the cheapest solution. Would you now become a little uncertain about whether to apply a specific cosmetic product on your skin or not, the truth is that producers of natural cosmetics prefer to use biologically fermented hyaluronic acid in their goods. This way it is much more expensive, but cleaner too. How do you knowcan you check which one is in a product? You won’t find it in the list of ingredients (INCI), but if the product is labeled “vegan” then chances are it is not of animal origin.
Its effect on our skin is like a glass of water for the body. It also has a similar functioning mechanism, as the hyaluronic acid molecule is capable of holding water upto 1000 times its own weight, thus providing excellent hydration.
Size matters! There are small and large molecules of hyaluronic acid. The effect of the anti-wrinkle hyaluronic acid can be enhanced if both types of molecules are present in the formulation. The larger ones remain on the surface while the smaller ones penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. Therefore, you should definitely look for a composition that contains both molecule sizes. This is how you can make the most of the blessing effect of hyaluronic acid.
What if you just applied hyaluronic acid on your face?
Based on what you’ve read so far, you may be wondering, why not apply this miracle on its own all over your skin as its effects are so inimitable? The answer is very simple: Thanks to this water-binding ability, a 100% hyaluronic acid solution would suck all the water out of your body in a blink of an eye, which would have the opposite effect.
Therefore, for cosmetic use a few percent solution is allowed only. Developed by experts, Hyaluronan Serum is a panacea for water-deficient, dry and mature skin that becomes flexible, soft and smooth. However, when applied badly, the body absorbs its own water supply, and its effect is exactly the opposite – it greatly dries the skin. As hydration is the basis of all skin care, above 30 all skin types will appreciate hyaluronic acid.
At Herbsgarden, we are great fans of it, and so, many of our facial care products contain the pure biotech-produced hyaluronan. Most popular product is Hialuron Serum, which provides deep and lasting hydration to your thirsty skin. We also love the Timeless Venus Cream, which delays the appearance and deepening of wrinkles. For cosmetic ultrasound treatment we recommend Hyaluronic Acid Ultrasonic Gel. Whichever you choose, the effect of hyaluronic acid will surely impress you!
