Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Overnight Restoring Cream
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that is naturally present inside your body and stored inside your skin, usually in quantities of around 10 to 20 grams. This wonder ingredient is actually an essential for your skin and plays a significant role to help your skin retain its moisture and protecting it from the elements. By keeping your skin nourished, it contributes to a smoother, firmer and more plumper complexion. This is why it is a widely used ingredient in our skincare products. “HA (hyaluronic acid) is critical in maintaining skin hydration,” says Aesthetic Doctor, Dr. Maryam Zamani, “although it can be degraded by free radical mechanisms caused by things like UV exposure. Topically applied, it helps to hydrate the skin and maintain this hydration as a humectant.”
As we age, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in our skin cells that we product begins to diminish and cell turnover can really slow down. This can cause lines, wrinkles and rough texture - all the good things that start to naturally happen as we age! If maintaining your youthful glow is a skin goal (and why wouldn’t it be?!), Hyaluronic Acid is your friend.
If your skin is in desperate need for a drink and an overall glow-over, Hyaluronic Acid is key. Dehydration can make skin feel rough, tight and sensitive as well as a tendency to look dull, which is something that most of us don’t want. “It is exceptional as it has the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water,” mentions Dr. Zamani, keeping moisture locked in and retaining it throughout the day.
This brings us to our skincare staple to add to your skincare routine, our Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Overnight Restoring Treatment.
