Hyaluronic Acid: Your Skin's Secret Weapon

 

Hyaluronic Acid... That word 'acid' can sound intimidatingly as if it's going to cause havoc and send your skin into a tailspin. But Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the secret weapon your skin loves: it's a super strength moisturiser that can hold up to 1000x times its own weight in water, helping you achieve skin that looks hydrated and plump. 

 

Our bodies produce this sponge-like structure naturally and it works like a magnet for moisture, holding up to six (you read that right!) litres of water in a single gram. But we all know that modern lifestyles are not doing our skin any favours. Between pollution, screens and staying up past our bedtimes (maybe with a martini or two), our natural Hyaluronic Acid depletes and this is made worse with age. It makes sense to give your skin a helping hand and supplement some extra HA into your diet!

 

5mg of Hyaluronic Acid is packed into each sachet of Gloh. Beauty Powder. The yummy peachy flavour makes it easy to get both your water and your skincare in one glass. 

 

THE SKIN SUPER POWERS OF HYALURONIC ACID

1. By attracting and holding on to water molecules, HA can keep your skin hydrated which in turn keeps it feeling super-soft, plump and pillowy. Goodbye filter, hello radiant skin!

 

2. When skin is hydrated, lines and wrinkles (even the deeper ones) appear diminished, so it is a great ingredient for those with ageing skin or anyone starting to notice the smile lines creep in. 

 

3. Recent research suggests that hyaluronic acid also has antioxidant properties, which means it can act like a shield against free radicals we aren't in control of, like pollution and other aggressors. HA can also boost collagen production: “Studies show that hyaluronic acid stimulates the fibroblast cells that make collagen,’’ explains cosmetic surgeon Dr Rajiv Grover, “producing a long-term anti-aging effect.”
