WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in various parts of our body like your eyes. skin and joints. Its main purpose is to lubricate the areas to ensure smooth functioning of the body part.

When it comes to the matter of our skin, Hyaluronic acid is basically the reason why your skin looks plump and hydrated. Why is that? Hyaluronic acid works amazingly well as a humectant which means, it pulls water molecules to the surface of the skin and can also bind up to 1000 times its molecular weight in water.

Being a humectant means it slows down water evaporation from the skin’s surface which is why your skin looks plump after using hyaluronic acid.

Studies have proven that with just 8 weeks of hyaluronic acid use, your skin’s moisture content increases by more than 95% which is really incredible.

The effects solely depend on the size of the HA molecule. 130kDA provides maximum skincare benefits but 50-1000 works too, anything less than that may cause inflammation.

CAN YOU USE HYALURONIC ACID EVERYDAY

You can use HA twice a day without any side effects. But you have to follow the brand’s instructions carefully.

Make sure the concentration of hyaluronic acid is less than 2%. Anything more than that will cause water loss resulting in an opposite and undesirable effect.

Best when used with vitamin C and vitamin B5

FOODS RICH IN COLLAGEN AND HYALURONIC ACID

For Collagen synthesis, our body needs 3 amino acids namely proline, lysine, and glycine. The below food sources contain minerals and vitamins that promote collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis. Fruits like Oranges contain naringenin which helps prevent the breakdown of collagen by inhibiting the enzyme, Hyaluronidase.

  • Bone broth (collagen & hyaluronic acid)
  • Fish with skin and shell fish (collagen)
  • Chicken (collagen)

FOODS THAT PROMOTE COLLAGEN/HYALURONIC ACID PRODUCTION

  • Soy products like edamame, soya chunks, soy milk and tofu
  • Tuber vegetables like sweat potatoes(healthy carbohydrate)
  • Dark green leafy vegetables, bell pepper and tomatoes
  • Kale and almonds
  • Citrus fruits aka, Vitamin C
  • Fruits like guava, berries, mango, pineapple, figs, oranges
  • Egg white (contains proline)

The only superfood that is rich in collagen, hyaluronic acid, proteins and amino acids would be BONE BROTH.

Kale, almonds and sweet potato does not contain hyaluronic acid but instead, they are rich in magnesium which is essential to our body for the production of hyaluronic acid so is the case with soy products.

Soy products are rich in pseudo-estrogens and estrogen helps boost the hyaluronic acid levels keeping skin plump and wrinkle free.

Make sure you have a well balanced diet and include these foods as often as possible.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE HYALURONIC ACID TO WORK?

2-8 weeks

WHERE IS HYALURONIC ACID FOUND IN YOUR BODY

Hyaluronic acid is found throughout the body like in your joints, umbilical cord, eyes and skin. About half of the body’s total hyaluronic acid is present in the skin though.

HOW DOES THE BODY MAKE HYALURONIC ACID

With the help of enzymes called HA Synthases(HAS), hyaluronic acid is synthesized within the plasma membrane and released into the extracellular space.

Do you want to know something? On our skin, Hyaluronic acid has a half life period of less than a day but hyaluronic fillers do stay in our body for 6-9 months.

BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID FOR SKIN

Below are the benefits of using hyaluronic acid in your skincare routine.

IMPROVE SKIN HYDRATION

Hyaluronic acid pulls moisture from its surroundings to the surface of the skin providing long lasting hydration. It is also capable of hydrating deeper layers of the skin that you can certainly see visible results in 8 weeks.

Suitable for all skin types especially dry, mature skin and sensitive skin.

WOUND HEALING

The anti-inflammatory properties of hyaluronic acid helps accelerate tissue regeneration, promote faster wound healing and reduce scarring.

The results depends on the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid. The higher molecular weight exhibit anti-inflammatory properties while on the other hand, HA of low molecular weight is proinflammatory which means it just makes the condition worser than it already is.

INCREASE SKIN ELASTICITY

Age, Oxidative stress and free radical damage from UV rays of the sun and environmental pollution does break down the collagen resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Dehydration can also be another reason for premature signs of ageing.

Consistent use of hyaluronic acid has been proven to improve skin elasticity.

SMOOTHENS SKIN TEXTURE

Since Hyaluronic acid has anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, it works in smoothening out skin textures by repairing the cells.
