Hyaluronic acid is an important ingredient in the skin care routine of you who want more moisture and radiance in the skin. Creams and serums with hyaluronic acid are most popular skin care products due to their external ability to provide the skin with moisture and give you more freshness and radiance.
Hyaluronic acid is a long sugar molecule with a unique ability to absorb and bind water in the skin. This ability makes the skin smoother and fuller.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and is mostly produced in the skin. "It is the major ingredient in the extracellular matrix, which contains the cells in the epidermis and dermis," says Noel Schwartz, a dermatologist and esthetician with 20 years of experience.
Types of hyaluronic acid
There are two main types of hyaluronic acid
This type of hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin's skin surface by creating a special film of water molecules. The film protects the skin from dehydration and prevents the appearance of signs of aging such as mimic lines and dryness. Hyaluronic acid with a high molecular weight is suitable for dry skin or after chemical peels.
This type of hyaluronic acid is used to correct wrinkles and irregularities in the skin. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid can reach deep to the lower layers of the skin and where it binds water and lifts the skin. Thus, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid helps to increase the skin's elasticity, firmness and elasticity as well as fill in wrinkles and lines.
Benefits of hyaluronic acid for the skin
Hyaluronic acid participates in collagen synthesis and protects the cells against free radicals. Humans have a fairly small amount of hyaluronic acid in the body (15 grams in a person weighing 70 kg), in addition, it has a short life cycle: from 30% to 50% of hyaluronic acid is broken down every day. With age, the production of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases to become at least at the age of 40.
Signs that the skin needs nourishment and hyaluronic acid from the outside:
Serum with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is often found in various skin care products - from day cream to face cleanser. These products keep the skin hydrated at an optimal level.
But in case of signs of a prolonged "dehydration", the skin must be saved quickly and then you need a more powerful product that is more specifically aimed at combating the cause of the problem. In such cases, it is the serum with hyaluronic acid that comes in handy and restores your skin's healthy moisture level and freshness.
Facial serum with hyaluronic acid is a moisturizing concentrate that increases the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin.
Serum with hyaluronic acid has the following effect on the skin:
Hyaluronic acid is a water-soluble substance, therefore serum with hyaluronic acid is characterized by a light, gel-like consistency, which is suitable for all skin types.
