Hyaluronic Acid

In the world of skincare and beauty, we hear so much about hyaluronic acid. What is it? Do we need it? What’s it in? Is it all just marketing hype?

As Natural Health Magazine describes, hyaluronic acid is “your body’s own hydrating molecule, often referred to as nature’s moisturiser and it can absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Great! The bad news? Like collagen, our natural levels deplete as we age.” water

One of the easiest ways to temporarily boost our levels is with good quality skincare and makeup products. For example, the Jane Iredale liquid mineral foundation contains this ingredient which will help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Firming Mask also contains this wonder ingredient. This is a firming, soothing mask that helps to rejuvenate the skin. I LOVE using it in our Nautilus Dublin facials!

Do you look for products containing hyaluronic acid?  Have you seen positive results? I’ve been using the Jane Iredale liquid mineral foundation since January. I find that the texture of my skin is smoother, the fine laughter lines around my eyes (sun damage!) don’t seem as noticeable, and overall I’m very happy with the results!
