The miracle ingredient – Hyaluronic Acid
- Posted on: Jun 12 2019
Hyaluronic acid – it sounds like an ingredient you would be worried about spilling in your high school chemistry class, but it’s actually the complete opposite! Hyaluronic acid, HA for short, is a naturally occurring substance in the body. One of its main jobs is to retain moisture, and as a single molecule, it can hold up to a 1,000 times its weight in water. This keeps your skin looking and feeling healthy, youthful and moisturized.
As we age, our bodies begin to produce less hyaluronic acid, leaving our skin drier and duller. Without adequate levels of hyaluronic acid, our bodies are unable to retain moisture, contributing to fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. By using skin care products that include hyaluronic acid, you can replace naturally occurring HA and aid in rehydrating your skin.
With all of the incredible benefits of hyaluronic acid, it’s no wonder it has become such a trendy miracle ingredient in skin care products and treatments. Here are a few of the products and treatments containing HAs that we offer at Azul:
Injectable Hyaluronic Acid
Injectables like JUVÉDERM and Restylane are a gel form of hyaluronic acid used to fill in folds and creases and to contour – often called volumizing the face and hands. With just a few injections, the gel plumps sunken areas, smooths fine lines, and adds volume. It also binds with collagen and elastin, transporting essential nutrients to the fibers that make up much of the support structure of the skin.
Products Containing Hyaluronic Acid
This serum is one of our more advanced products and packed with active ingredients, including HAs, that help renew your skin! It contains five growth factors, collagen-boosting peptides, amino acids and vitamins, all working together to deliver numerous powerful skin benefits. At the heart of this serum is sodium hyaluronate, a form of hyaluronic acid, that helps to keep your skin plump and moisturized while also giving the serum an elegant feel. You can use this serum after any cleanser, toner or mask, making it a perfect addition to your daily skincare routine.
HA Serum with Peptides
A serum and light-weight moisturizer in one, this unique hyaluronic acid-based serum does more than just replenish your skin’s supply of HAs — it is designed to enhance skin moisture and contains collagen-boosting peptides. This moisturizer also includes vitamin B and niacinamide to help revitalize the skin. It’s a perfect moisturizer for all skin types, as it is oil- and fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.
