Find out just how Hyaluronic acid can change your skin forever and the best way to enjoy all of the benefits.
What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural water molecule found all over the body, there to cushion joints and nerves and hydrate the skin and hair. It is not only incredibly hydrating but it helps to stimulate collagen production, is an antioxidant, and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. As you age, the amount of Hyaluronic acid your body produces decreases, which is part of the reason why mature skin becomes drier and less firm.
How can Hyaluronic acid help my skin?
Hyaluronic acid has extraordinary water retention properties as it can hold over a thousand times its own weight in water within the skin cells, which is much more than any other natural or synthetic ingredient. By adding Hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine, you can help replenish the moisture that skin loses as you get older. This means less fine lines and wrinkles and firmer looking skin.
Hyaluronic acid also helps to strengthen the outer layers of your skin, giving it a softer and smoother appearance. Due to its antioxidant qualities, Hyaluronic acid also protects skin from free radical damage and UVB rays. Sun damage is one of the main causes of premature ageing, so by protecting your skin from the environment, your skin will age slower and more naturally.
Who is Hyaluronic acid best for?
One of the best things about Hyaluronic acid is that it’s suitable for all skin types due to its weightless texture and easy absorption. Even those with oilier complexions can suffer from dehydrated skin, so including Hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine is a great way to rehydrate skin without being too heavy.
Hyaluronic acid is also very mild so is suitable for those with sensitive skin, pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding.
There really isn’t anyone who couldn’t benefit from applying Hyaluronic acid to their skin on a regular basis.
How can I include Hyaluronic acid in my skincare routine?
With all the wondrous benefits of Hyaluronic acid, it’s not surprising that it’s such a popular ingredient in skincare products. However, not all skincare products are created equally and whilst some claim to harness the benefits of Hyaluronic acid, only very small amounts are actually included. This is going to have little to no benefits to the skin.
At Senovu we’ve developed our Hydrating Face Mist which has Hyaluronic acid at the heart of the product. Our face mist blends the moisturising and weightless qualities of Hyaluronic acid, with soothing Australian lavender oil and the antioxidants grape seed, cranberry and green tea for intense moisture and skin protection.
Our handbag friendly face mist can be spritzed throughout the day for an immediate and refreshing burst of hydration.
Whether you have youthful but dehydrated skin, mature and dry skin or just want an extra boost of hydration, Hyaluronic acid is the perfect skincare ingredient for you.
