THE MYTHS AND TRUTH ABOUT HYALURONIC ACID FOR YOUR SKIN

Found in moisturising, plumping, anti-aging creams, serums or in cosmetic injections, hyaluronic acid is THE anti-aging essential. Here is what you need to know about this miracle ingredient and our new Revitalift Triple Power LZR Hyaluronic Acid Serum:

HYALURONIC ACID IS IN YOUR SKIN NATURALLY

True: Found in both humans and animals, hyaluronic acid is in your body naturally, it’s concentrated in the joints, the eyes and the skin’s dermis. Biodegradable, biocompatible and biomimetic, it’s formulated via a biotechnological process using energy and bacteria.

HYALURONIC ACID MOISTURISERSACT AT VARIOUS LEVELS

True: This molecule acts like a sponge in the dermis, capturing water and multiplying its volume a thousandfold. Which is why hyaluronic acid treatments are famous for their plumping, moisturising action. Depending on the molecule’s size, it can penetrate the skin’s various layers in order to regenerate and restructure them. The smaller the size of the molecule, the deeper it penetrates the skin’s tissues. In the dermis, these smaller fragments then stimulate body to produce its version of natural hyaluronic acid, alongside collagen fibres.

AS TIME PASSES, HYALURONIC ACID LEVELS REMAIN CONSTANT

False: The amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases as we get older. This reduction partly explains the dehydration and wrinkles that come with age. By the time we’re about 50, hyaluronic acid in the body will have decreased by about 50 per cent. This causes fine lines to deepen and skin to become less firm.

WE CAN USE HYALURONIC ACID FOR WRINKLES

True: As well as acting as a hydrating agent in many products, hyaluronic acid in creams is also used as an anti-ageing ingredient for older skin types, plumping and boosting collagen production.
