Everyday many of us try so hard to help our skin by applying skin care that contains ingredients designed to nourish, rehydrate and protect our skin. The skin is a natural barrier and it resists the absorption of most of the ingredients in our skin care products. Every day we are literally washing money down the drain as we wash our faces and remove the products we’ve applied earlier in the day.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could deliver directly to within the skin the hydrating and nourishing ingredients found in our skin care products?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally present in our body, it performs a fundamental role in keeping the skin in good health by providing structure, hydration and anti-oxidant protection. It is also one of the most important ingredients found in most high quality skin care brands. This essential element of the dermis retains water like a sponge so as to maintain its hydration.
The main reasons for the ageing of the skin include excess of oxidants (free radicals)*and progressive loss of intrinsic HA. With age, we can lose up to 2/3 of our hyaluronic acid pool. At 35 years of age the skin’s thickness has decreased on average by about 22%.As it gets thinner, the skin becomes more fragile, dehydrates, wrinkles form more easily and its elasticity diminishes.
