Hyaluronic Acid has been a coveted skincare ingredient for the last number of years and it's not hard to know why. It has been coined as the 'fountain of youth' by many skincare companies thanks to its naturally plumping abilities, which helps skincare in achieving the desired youthful and fresh complexion . But did you know, Hyaluronic Acid is made by each and everyone of us? Sadly, just as growing up and getting older has it's many positives, one downside is the depletion of this naturally made Hyaluronic Acid.
As we age Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies drops. It's a core part of the skins intercellular matrix and is often used in medicine post surgery for its cushioning protection and lubrication. The reason it can plump, cushion and lubricate is its amazing ability to hold and retain more than a 1,000 times its own weight in water. We want to apply that natural plumping to your skin with this active ingredient that we know your body can metabolise and recognize as safe. It’s Mother Natures own anti-aging ingredient and is so effective that we use it in a number of our products to deliver real skin benefits.
Where to find Hyaluronic Acid
It is for all those reasons why it was a must have ingredient in our Hyaluronic Youth Boost. It can help improve the overall skin condition as well as reducing the appearance of ageing signs, especially fine lines around the mouth and eyes. These benefits come from the key ingredients of naturally plumping Hyaluronic acid and the considered superfood, Turmeric, which contains anti-inflammatory components, that is blended with baobab, cucumber and rosemary. Studies also show it is a crucial part of skin repair. It's coupled in this light gel with turmeric's active ingredient ‘Curcumin’ which, studies have shown, protects the skin cells from free radical damage and can also help reduce the appearance of sunspots and pigmentation scarring. In addition the Baobab extract we use has been shown to help reduce the appearance of fine lines as it is naturally high in Alpha Hydroxy Acids and sugars that work together synergistically to help give a lifting-smoothing effect to the skin, improving overall skin appearance. A triple hit of antioxidants from extracts of Cucumber and Rosemary with added Vitamin E (tocopherol) ensure you get maximum goodness in this small tube.

When to apply our Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Youth Boost is a targeted treatment for use by people looking to improve their skin's appearance and condition and to help reduce the appearance of signs of ageing, especially fine lines. Top tip, Use a pea size amount morning and night and pat it into the area, let it dry and then finish off by applying our 24Hr Face Serum and Active Rosehip Day Cream. Young people have a lot of hyaluronic acid relative to older people and would not really get the benefit of using a hyaluronic acid product such as this. It can, however, help improve their skin generally.
