The miracle beauty hit that is Hyaluronic Acid

HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic acid has fast become the new darling of the beauty industry as the almost undisputed champion of plumper, firmer complexions. Found naturally in our joints and skin, this marvellous polymer, often dubbed “the fountain of youth” can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, thus helping to lock in moisture and combat dryness and dehydration. Furthermore, as it’s already produced by our own bodies, there is very little chance of it causing allergic reactions when used in cosmetic applications, so it’s ideal for absolutely anyone… including those with sensitive skin.  

An age defying application

Hyaluronic acid has fast become the new darling of the beauty industry as the almost undisputed champion of plumper, firmer complexions. Found naturally in our joints and skin, this marvellous polymer, often dubbed “the fountain of youth” can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, thus helping to lock in moisture and combat dryness and dehydration. Furthermore, as it’s already produced by our own bodies, there is very little chance of it causing allergic reactions when used in cosmetic applications, so it’s ideal for absolutely anyone… including those with sensitive skin.  

As we age, our skin loses its ability to retain moisture, causing it to dry out and form unwanted wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to both bind water to skin cells and help to retain that moisture, much like a sponge. This, in turn, helps the skin to smooth out, plump up and fill in fine lines, leaving it looking tighter, clearer and less pigmented. For older skin, this translates as an age-defying application, restoring one’s appearance to a youthful glow.

Lest we forget…

Whatever your age, skin hydration is of paramount importance and, although this may be surprising, using hyaluronic acid based products in summer is just as essential as using them in winter. This is because when we perspire, skin loses water content and therefore dehydrates. The skin then tries to compensate for the dryness by producing too much oil, which inevitably leads to acne. By promoting proper moisture levels in the skin, whether it’s naturally oily or not, hyaluronic acid helps us to avoid these breakouts and ensures that our skin maintains a perfect balance.

Also remember that hyaluronic acid is neither a preventative measure nor a cure for sun damage, so protect your skin at all times by using an SPF 30 or higher on a daily basis.

Change it up

As creatures of habit, we are often immovable when it comes to our beauty routines. What we don’t realise, however, is that our skin sometimes needs a change in order to keep it looking its best. So switch things up every few months and find some fabulous new products to add to your favourites! 

Cosmetology stocks a brilliant new hyaluronic acid enriched product called Nimue Hyaluronic Oil 15ml, which is infused in a blend of oils that promotes both intense hydration and moisture. This application results in softer, smoother, more elastic skin and is ideal for dry and cold climates.
