Hyaluronic acid is nature’s true anti-aging molecule, it is the key to keeping your cells hydrated, and that is the wonderful part of keeping your skin plump, soft, smooth, and glowing. The most powerful version of hyaluronic acid is in the form of a serum.
While hyaluronic acid has always been a vital component within our bodies, it was only given its current name during the 1970s. In 1986, the technical name was again changed to Hyaluronan, a name you might see on product labels, because it was identified within the body cells as being a salt component, not an acid. But, the anti-aging benefits of hyaluronic acid are the same, regardless of its chemical or biological name.
HOW HYALURONIC ACID WORKS
Hyaluronic acid is the main component found in connective tissues throughout our bodies. It is responsible for keeping our cells lubricated with a necessary form of essential carbohydrates. The acid supplies our collagen with the fluids that keep the cells plump, soft, and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid is able to deliver its lubricating effects by attracting and holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water volume. The hyaluronic acid molecules are just the perfect size to enter your skin between connective tissues and transport its water content between your skin’s cells. This provides a water seal on your outer skin layer that protects you from environmental pollutants while still keeping your skin moisturized and promoting youthful cell turnover.
ANTI-AGING BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID SERUM
Hyaluronic acid serum has so many wonderful anti-aging benefits that it’s hard for me to know where to begin. When used daily, the serum regenerates dry, thin cells with nourishing water filled molecules. The results are lubricated skin cells that eliminate or diminish fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles under your eyes, sunken areas under your eyes, laugh lines. Another bonus is that hyaluronic acid serum can help reverse the signs of facial redness and increase the strength of your skin’s elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is listed on product labels as Hyaluronic Acid, Hyaluronan, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycoaminoglycan, and Hyaluronate Sodium, but, they all deliver the same desired age defying effects.
HOW MUCH HYALURONIC ACID SERUM TO USE
I mentioned earlier that less is more when related to hyaluronic acid serum. Because of its large molecular size, applying too much serum at one time will make it difficult for serum to enter your cells and deliver its results. When applying hyaluronic acid serum, just use a few drops and gently smooth it over your face and neck. Allow it to dry before applying argan oil with a protective sunscreen or putting on your make up.
HOW OFTEN TO APPLY HYALURONIC ACID SERUM
You can safely and effectively use hyaluronic acid serum twice a day. Use it in the morning for all day skin protection and use it in the evening before going to bed for all of its beneficial night time skin repair process. The only other requirement is to only apply the hyaluronic acid serum on a clean and dry face and neck.
You will clearly see the rewards you gain from using hyaluronic acid serum in the mirror. And, you’ll know that your efforts are successful when your friends and family demand that you share your age defying secret with them. I’ll let you decide if you want to be the radiant, young one in the group or if you want to help others discover the key to looking as young and fresh as ever.
