Intense hydration for dull, lifeless and dehydrated skin
Aging and Your Skin
The amount of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in skin decreases with age. The loss in moisture causes skin to be dehydrated, looking lifeless and dull. Dry skin can accelerate the aging process, with visible signs like fine lines, wrinkles and the loss of elasticity. This is why it is important to moisturize your skin and plump up hydration from within!
The amount of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in your skin starts to decline from your 20s, with external factors like UV-exposure, harsh air-conditioning, pollution and excessive sodium consumption accelerating the aging process.
The Amazing Discovery of Hyaluronic Acid
Several years ago in 2000, the humble Japanese village of Yuzurihara catapulted to worldwide fame as the ‘village of long life’. Out of the 990 villages and towns surveyed by the World Health Organization in Japan, Yuzurihara Village had the greatest proportion of people living beyond the age of 85, than anywhere in the world. This discovery was so intriguing that even the Japanese Emperor and ABC News visited this village to find out more about their secret of longevity.
Adding to the astonishment, the aged Yuzurihara villagers were in very good health and almost everyone had smooth skin, flexible joints, thick hair and near-perfect eyesight – with none of the signs associated with natural aging. In fact, many older villages in their 80s were still involved in farming their fields and led very active lives. One 90-year-old woman had no wrinkles or age spots. The town doctor, Dr Toyosuke Komori, attributed the youthfulness of the residents to a diet rich in sticky vegetables and gelatinous root vegetables that promote Hyaluronic Acid levels in thebody.
Effects of Hyaluronic Acid on Skin
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found in the body. It attaches to collagen and elastin to form cartilage. The highest amounts are found in the skin, where it is the key molecule needed in maintaining the structure of skin tissues and balancing hydration levels.
Hyaluronic Acid supports intense hydration and quenches dehydrated skin, with a unique water-locking capacity to replenish water from within. Sufficient levels of Hyaluronic Acid traps water in skin layers to plump up skin cells and restore moisture levels, improving skin tone and texture.
