What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is one of those ingredients that sounds like you should stay far, far away from. In fact the opposite is true- you should be running about trying to get your hands on it and quickly adding it to your beauty regime. It is a gel-like, water storing, molecule, that binds its self to mois-ture thus helping keep the skin plump and well hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid actually occurs natural-ly within our bodies (skin, eyes and joints) and throughout the plant kingdom. It retains over 1,000 times its own weight in water and is thought to improve cell to cell interaction and promote the synthesis of collagen, prevent wrinkles, improve skins texture, all the while helping to fortify the underlying cell structures (skin matrix) within our skin.

As we age and come into contact with things like exposure to ultra violet light, smoking, sunshine, and pollution our body slows its natural production of Hyaluronic Acid. Using serums, creams, and other products that highlight this ingredient helps your body combat the inevitable loss due to lower production within the body.

Another benefit of Hyaluronic Acid is that is speeds up wound healing. While this acid is found within the skin naturally, it increases in concentration around a wound site. Applying to open wounds helps to regulate inflammation response and signals to the body its need to build more blood vessels in the damaged area. These two properties greatly improves healing time and limits scarring to the site.

 

Recherche Hyaluronic Acid Hand Made


To use our hyaluronic serum it is best to use on dry clean skin. Apply a couple of drops to the palm of your hand and apply to all areas of your face, neck and décolletage. Allow a moment for our serum to sink in and dry then continue with other moisturizers, facial mists or sprays or appli-cation of make up. We love to hear and see your experience. Tag us with

Until Next Time,
