Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that is naturally produced by the body. This gooey substances main function in the body is to retain water to keep tissues and cells well lubricated and moist. Nearly half of HA (a.k.a. hyaluronic acid) in the body presents itself within the skin. HA contains humectant abilities, drawing water from the skin's dermis and moisture from the air, holding and binding it within the skin to help retain moisture and hydration. However, with the natural aging process and exposure to pollution, sun, blue HEV lights, and other aging factors the amount of hyaluronic acid the skin naturally produces decreases. There are so many incredible benefits of this natural substance such as wound healing, relieving joint pain, soothing dry eyes, preserving bone strength and many other amazing internal benefits.
So what happens when we apply this substance to the surface of our skin? Hyaluronic acid has become a very popular ingredient for its ability to hold a thousand times its weight in water, offering a big boost of quenching hydration. When your skin is properly hydrated it appears more youthful and plump with an overall natural radiance. Not only does it appeal with the appearance of the skin this water based substance also helps the skin function optimally and in a healthy matter. HA plays a very important role in cell metabolism, regeneration, healing, tone, and skin elasticity.
Now that we know the astounding benefits of Hyaluronic Acid lets talk about why not all Hyaluronic Acid is created equal. Hyaluronic Acid is considered a macromolecule. This indicates that applying hyaluronic acid topically is not always effective because of its inability to properly absorb into the skin. That is why at Fitglow we use multi size Hyaluronic Acid to ensure this isn't a problem. Multi size HA is a broken down version of the natural hyaluronic acid molecule. It's multi sizes has the ability to penetrate deeper into the layers of the epidermis in a more digestible, compatible way.
The varying HA sizes enhance effectiveness and increases the intelligence of the skin allowing it to repair itself and develop its own natural self defence. The added boost of hydration in the layers residing within the epidermis gives the skin an enhanced appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles will not be magically erased with HA, but the extra moisture contributes plumping and filling the nooks and loss of density within these layers, resulting in a more youthful appearance and fine lines and wrinkles are smoother and less noticeable. Plus, HA also has incredible anti inflammatory benefits and will soothe and diminish irritation and inflammation. Without HA the skin will become thinner and drier which can result in more irritable skin because of its loss of defence against environmental agressors. That is why continuing to keep your skins HA in tact is vitally important for overall skin health.
