Hyaluronic acid is gaining traction a rejuvenation weapon

One of the key accelerators in facial ageing is a lack of moisture in the skin barrier, which comprises cells and lipids.

When the barrier doesn’t have enough water, lipids dry out and become damaged, contributing to premature ageing.

Everyday routines like showering and commuting subject the skin barrier to abrasive elements.

Fortunately, scientific advancements in stem cell research have discovered natural ingredients to counter these effects.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient for locking moisture into the skin


An expert has claimed that hyaluronic acid is an effective ingredient to boost skin plumpness.

Diane Ackers, TV host & beauty expert for Doctors Formula Cosmeceuticals, said: “Boost your skin’s natural water content with a daily dose of hyaluronic acid. Not only does it boost hydration levels, but it minimises the appearance of fine lines too.

“Remember your portrait is only as good as the canvas it’s drawn on."

The naturally occurring substance is quickly gaining traction in the beauty industry for its unique ability to lock moisture into the eyes and skin.

This has several benefits, including the reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, which often emerge as a side effect of dehydration.

A great number of people seek skin care once the signs of ageing have started to appear, but the most effective practices are those adopted before symptoms emerge.

Sun protection is one of the key processes for delaying the emergence of wrinkles. A vitamin C serum in the morning and retinol at night also come highly recommended.

Together the products help brighten the skin and lighten dark spots while boosting collagen production in the deeper layers of the epidermis.

A little goes a long way with these products. They may need to be used even more sparingly during colder months if dryness becomes uncomfortable.

Skin care fans should note that these products can have detrimental effects if used excessively.

The good news is that topical hyaluronic acids have few known adverse effects on the skin, partly because the body already produces them.

However, users may still develop a reaction to certain brands.

This comes as one woman shared her favourite supplements to help her look younger.
