Anti aging wrinkle is a constant battle for women who are not fond of showing the signs. We have to start young to look after our skin to help it be healthy and look good. And lines remind us that we are growing old.
First and foremost we have to apply the basic knowledge to avoid as much lines as we can by following the prevention tips here and here? If a person follows the tips diligently, he/she has already won half the battle.
There are already many anti aging creams on the market and enough confusion. Here we will look at the most known to reduce the signs of aging.
The first one is Hyaluronic Acid. What on earth is HA?
Probably you have seen it written on packaging or being glorified in tv adverts……….rightly so.
HA is known as the Fountain of Youth for your body not only your skin. HA is a gel-like water holding molecule that is the space filler and cushioning agent in all mammals that cushions joints, nerves, hydrates skin and hair, and fills the eye.
When we are young the body has enough supply of HA as it regenerates and renews itself quickly, however as we age the production starts to slow down leaving us with wrinkles and multiple malfunctions in the body. Our bodies roughly contain 15 grams of HA found in every part.
Scientific studies have shown that HA improves skin hydration, stimulates production of collagen in skin, works as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger, maintains skin elasticity, has an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activity and maintains the fluid in the eye tissues, which may help to protect against numerous possible eye concerns. There are many additional benefits reported with the use of hyaluronic acid and these include faster wound healing, increased energy, dry skin relief, improved muscular strength and increased mental alertness.
Almost half of the body’s HA is located in the collagen of skin. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. In fact, no other biological substance can retain as much water as HA resulting in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles. Equally important is its ability to remove waste matter from cells including those where there is little blood circulation.
Today, hyaluronic acid is considered equally important, if not more important, than Collagen. It is found in anti-aging creams, supplements, injections and more forms.
Just applied alone if you have oily skin and under your moisturizer for dry skin.
HA is just one of the anti aging wrinkle treatments you can start using for younger looking skin. There is much more to learn about anti aging skin care products.
