Winter brings shorter days, cooler temperatures, and drier weather, which means you need to reevaluate your skin care regimen before the lack of moisture in your skin results in new fine lines and wrinkles.
Save your skin from the ravages of extreme conditions by using skin care products with hyaluronic acid to help you protect and repair your skin, while avoiding dry, winter skin.
Hyaluronic acid is an excellent humectant that draws moisture and holds it into the skin, which is why we include our patented version of hyaluronic acid, HylaFusion®, in all our products.
You may have heard of hyaluronic acid, but what is it exactly?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body. It’s located in the spaces between cells where it can absorb large volumes of water to help maintain hydration. One area of the body that has a significant amount of hyaluronic acid is the skin. The hyaluronic acid can act as a delivery system for other ingredients that are important to the health of your skin, like vitamins C and E, which remove free radicals, fight UV damage and diminish imperfections in the skin. This makes hyaluronic acid the perfect multi-faceted, anti-aging tool.
What is HylaFusion® and what makes it so effective?
Dry skin not only loses its luster and hydration but also its ability to absorb needed nutrients. HylaFusion is composed of three forms of hyaluronic acid (also known as hyaluronan) in proprietary ratios of small and large hyaluronan molecules and highly hydrated HylaSponges®. Larger molecules remain on the surface of the skin and in the stratum corneum hydrating for up to 8 hours after application, even when the skin feels dry to the touch, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The smaller hyaluronan molecules in HylaFusion are able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, carrying with them active small molecules, vitamins and peptides, such as vitamin C, which are essential for maintaining healthy, younger-looking skin.
These three forms of hyaluronan in HylaFusion work together to retain water and other nutrients and slowly release them in the skin, promoting enhanced ingredient delivery and effectiveness to provide longer-lasting hydration and powerful anti-aging results.
