Hyaluronic Acid: Sure, we’ve all heard of that. But what is behind it? Where does she come from, what can she do, how does she make us beautiful? Let’s go: 5 facts about hyaluronic acid!
1. Hyaluronic acid is a part of our body
Whether in the skin care shelf or in advertising – at the hyaluronic acid no one can pass. Sounds almost like it’s an invention of the beauty industry. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our body, 50 percent of the body’s own hyaluronic acid are in the skin. It is an important component of connective tissue and plays a major role in cell proliferation and renewal.
2. hyaluronic acid binds water
Chemically, hyaluronic acid is a chain of sugar molecules. And these sugar molecules bind water. Much water. Only 1 gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to 6 liters of water, which is 6000 times its own weight. This creates moisture deposits that increase the tension of the connective tissue and reduce the depth of wrinkles – the skin is padded from the inside. Since young skin contains and produces a lot of hyaluron, we look so wrinkle-free and radiant at a young age.
3. The older we get, the emptier the hyaluronic acid depots of the skin become
The bad news: The older we get, the less hyaluron our body produces, the cell activity diminishes. This starts at the end of 20, and from 40, deeper wrinkles can form, because the skin can no longer store so much moisture. In short: Little moisture and empty hyaluron depots make us look old.
4. Skin Care with Hyaluronic Acid Really Works
Luckily we can help. L’Oréal Paris has shown in studies on reconstructed skin (Episkin) that even more collagen and hyaluron were naturally formed in the skin areas where hyaluron fillers were used. Those who do not feel like injecting can do a lot with creams and serums. Important: The hyaluronic acid must have a specific, permeable molecule size. This was the Revitalift care series reached. The combination of short and long chain hyaluronic acid makes it almost like an injection. L’Oréal Paris has shown in the research for the Revitalift care series that after 4 weeks, wrinkles were reduced, the skin gradually appeared smoother and fuller. On the cheeks, 26 percent more volume was measured in a study commissioned by L’Oréal Paris. When combined with cream and serum, this effect even doubles. Since hyaluronic acid is an endogenous substance, it is well tolerated – even on sensitive skin.
5. We need regular hyaluronic acid
The effect of hyaluronic acid is clearly visible, but it does not have a lasting effect. Regular anti-aging care with hyaluron, for example with Revitalift , is therefore recommended. If we keep that in mind, then it really works: we can slow down the signs of the times and look forward to even over advanced age about plump, healthy skin without deep wrinkles.
