“Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.” We’ve all heard this general rule of health. But do we all follow through? Our busy day-to-day schedules are filled with commuting, work, family, and other responsibilities so it’s no surprise the 8-glasses of water rule goes out the window! We all know that sufficient water intake is essential for internal health and the health of our skin, but we can also incorporate a powerful substance known as Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to our skincare routine to help hydrate our skin from the outside-in. Once HA is implemented into your skincare routine, you’ll see outstanding transformational results.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a youth-supporting substance naturally produced in the skin which has moisture-binding characteristics, meaning it has the ability to hold water and retain moisture. Unfortunately, as we age, our skin loses the ability to produce the same amount of HA as it once did, resulting in loss of firmness, an increase of lines and wrinkles and a diminished appearance of plumpness. HA increases moisture retention beyond comparison with any other substance, and instantly revitalizes the outer layer of the skin so that it feels smoother, softer and hydrated. As a result, appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are diminished and plumpness is restored.
HA5 by SkinMedica
Dr. David Shamouelian has found that there is absolutely nothing not to love about SkinMedica’s HA5 and the rejuvenating and smoothing effects it has on the skin. Aside from the fact that HA5 is not tested on animals, it is also hypoallergenic, meaning it is suitable for all skin types. It’s even gentle enough to be used as a hydrating aftershave for men! What mainly sets HA5 apart from its competitors is that it has been rigorously tested and published in prominent dermatology journals, proving its effectiveness. It contains five different kinds of Hyaluronic Acid which work synergistically throughout the day for instant smoothing of the skin and results are almost instant, leaving you looking and feeling great within minutes of first time application. It also contains antioxidants and peptides which fight against free radicals and stimulate the production of the skin’s own Hyaluronic Acid for long-term rejuvenation and skin health.
