Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring protein made by our own bodies and is present in our skin. It binds with and boosts the production of collagen and elastin, thereby increasing the repair of dead skin cells and delaying the formation of lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is able to hold and absorb large amounts of moisture, which not only protects the skin, it also helps to give the skin a plump and youthful appearance. Unfortunately, from our mid 20’s onwards the amount of hyaluronic acid our body produces starts to reduce, this process is accelerated by the harmful effects of free radicals caused by UV sun rays, smoking and pollutants. Within the last decade scientists have been able to isolate and produce Hyaluronic Acid and and make it available to treat various medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, it also the main ingredient in popular injectable dermal filler treatments used to treat lines and wrinkles. More recently high quality cosmetic manufacturers such as Skinceuticals, Restylane and Teosyal have manufactured Hyaluronic acid creams, which deliver Hyaluronic acid in high enough concentrations that are able to be absorbed into the skin to give considerable anti aging and moisturising benefits.
Skinceuticals offer high quality Hyaluronic acid based creams as part of their Correct range which include anti aging creams which are used to correct skin problems such as dark circles under the eyes, dry skin, dehydration and pigmentation. They also offer a Hyaluronic acid cream as part of their moisturise range which can be used as a daily moisturiser. To obain optimal anti aging benefits from Skinceuticals Hyaluronic acid creams they should be used together with an Antioxidant serum and an SPF Sunscreen.
