Why do I need Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid has the power to thoroughly hydrate, making skin look instantly dewy while decreasing the appearance of roughness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance with the ability to retain moisture that occurs naturally in the body. As we age, we make less hyaluronic acid and our skin starts to lose its baby-smooth plumpness.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) has the power to thoroughly hydrate, making skin look instantly dewy and plump, while decreasing the appearance of roughness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

But what is hyaluronic acid exactly?

And what sort of hyaluronic acid skincare product will work best for you?

The majority of hyaluronic acid in your body is located in your skin, while the rest can be found in other areas, including the eyes, joint fluid, and GI tract. Your skin’s natural HA is responsible for volume, moisture, and plumpness—that glow and bounce that’s especially common when we’re young.

What Happens as We Age?

Over the years, we make less and less hyaluronic acid and our skin starts to lose its plumpness. Along with age, external factors like sun damage, smoking, and diet can accelerate the decline in hyaluronic acid. When we lose HA, we lose that lovely moisture and radiant glow that comes with it, and we end up with dryness, rough texture, and a more sunken look to our skin.

What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do?

When used in skincare, hyaluronic acid is considered an extremely powerful hydrator that’s great for all skin types. It acts as a humectant - a substance that helps your skin hold on to water and help with the appearance of hydrated, glowing skin.

Who Should Use Hyaluronic Acid?

While hyaluronic acid is a great fit for almost all skin types, those with mature or dry skin will see the most visible benefits. As we age, our skin needs more help getting the hyaluronic acid and moisture it used to create on its own. With the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, HA is one of the most effective hydrators out there.

What Are the Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid?

  • Boosting hydration for more radiant-looking skin.
  • Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improving the look of skin texture.
  • Helping skin appear plumper, dewier, and fuller.
  • Helping skin to hold on to moisture to remain hydrated longer.

What Should You Look for in a Hyaluronic Acid Skincare Product?

Not all hyaluronic acid products are created equal. When you compare HA products, you’ll find two central differences: the molecular size of HA used and the other ingredients the product contains.

The new ALASTIN HA IMMERSE Serum™ was meticulously formulated to deliver the best of both worlds. The luxurious serum is formulated only with high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid. This form of HA is the same molecular weight as the HA naturally found deep within your skin. That means it delivers the form of HA that your body needs, helping to promote plumper, more hydrated skin in a natural way.

It also includes ingredients to promote skin hydration — both from the outside in and the inside out. The proprietary Octapeptide-45 helps the skin’s ability to naturally increase its own high-molecular hyaluronic acid production deep within the skin for long-term, skin-plumping, anti-aging, and hydration benefits.

Large molecule Sodium Hyaluronate Cross polymer (ingredient that’s extracted from HA. It’s the sodium salt form of HA). is also included to support the skin’s ability to retain moisture, while Silver Mushroom Extract provides and encourages additional skin hydration. This clinically proven formula promotes more hydrated skin around the clock to deliver a glowing, lustrous appearance, while decreasing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Where Does Hyaluronic Acid Fit into My Daily Regimen?

Typically, when you layer on products, you start with the thinnest formula and end with the thickest formula. In the case of HA IMMERSE, this also rings true! You can apply HA IMMERSE immediately after washing and drying your face, then continue on with the rest of your daily regimen.
