Hyaluronic Acid

Just like collagen and elastin, the amount of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases as we get older. As women over 50, the natural sugar Hyaluronic acid is not produced in the same quantities as when we were younger! It is due to what lies beneath the surface that our skin starts to sag and wrinkles appear as we get older.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid, also known as hyaluronan. It is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The naturally created hyaluronan sugars can be found throughout our bodies. Roughly half of the hyaluronic acid in your body is found in the layers of your skin. 

The sugars bind to water to help retain moisture in our bodies. It holds a thousand times its weight in water. It retains all required moisture in our skin and joints while also preventing moisture evaporating.

There are various benefits to having elevated levels of hyaluronan sugars in our bodies. The benefits include;

More Supple skin

Hydrated skin is firm and supple at the same time. The firmer, plumper skin also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, which explains why several studies show adding hyaluronan sugars to your skin can make it appear smoother. 

While we naturally lose hyaluronan, exposure to things like ultraviolet radiation from the sun, tobacco smoke and pollution can decrease the amounts of it in the skin. With less ability to absorb and hold moisture, your skin will become saggy and wrinkle.

Hyaluronic Acid aids skin repair

Hyaluronic Acid has been shown to help wounds heal faster. It regulates inflammation levels and signals the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged area. It has been noted in studies that the concentration of the hyaluronan sugars is greater as you get closer to a wound. The sugars play a pivotal role in your skin’s ability to heal and repair itself.

Ways to increase your hyaluronan sugars

Hyaluronic Acid is found throughout the body and it plays a role in maintaining its moisture. To get the hyaluronan sugar levels up in your joints and on your skin, you can add a supplement to your routine. For the skincare application, we suggest you choose a concentrated gel. It is better to utilize higher quality products with greater concentrates of the hyaluronan sugars for greater results.
