If you could reduce wrinkles by 40% would you do it? That’s exactly what Hyaluronic Acid does. Backed by scientific research and validated by the National Institute of Health, Hyaluronic Acid has been shown to reduce the actual depth of skin wrinkles up to 40%!
So what does this mean for you? When used on the skin, HA reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, redness and dermatitis. You will appear younger, your skin will feel more taught and supple. When used before applying make up HA plumps up the skin allowing make up to go on more smoothly. HA also speeds up wound healing because of it’s anti-inflammatory AND fights acne because it's also anti-bacterial!
How does HA work? Hyaluronic Acid is a “hydrogel” which is a category of molecules with the ability to absorb water. HA is able to absorb 1000x’s it’s weight in water which is what creates the “plumping” action in the skin.
Is it safe? Nothing is 100% certain but it should be safe for most skin types since HA is naturally occurring in our skin. It acts as a binder between Collagen and Elastin which gives our skin its springy and supple qualities.
How do I use HA to get the maximum benefits? You can use HA when you get up in the morning and evening before bed to lift and hydrate tired and saggy looking eyes. In the morning, use it first in your skincare regimen after cleansing your face. Apply a dropper full to your hands and gently massage into and around the target areas. We recommend an organic, “activated” charcoal cleanser because it removes surface toxins, make up, dirt/debris and excess oil while hydrating the skin at the same time. You can also use HA at night before bed to keep the hydration going while you sleep!
