WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic, often also called hyaluronic acid or hyaluronan, occurs naturally in our body. The body’s substance is essential for our skin: hyaluronic acid stores moisture in our skin cells. As a result, it creates a robust cushion on which the top layer of skin rests smoothly and evenly. However, from around the age of 25, the skin’s production of hyaluronic acid slowly decreases. Then the skin loses moisture and volume more quickly. As a result, fine lines and, finally, the first wrinkles appear.
Its properties are spectacular, as it has an impressive ability to retain moisture: a single molecule container holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water! Another interesting fact to verify its spectacular power: a gram of hyaluronic acid can contain up to six litres of water.
What does the body need hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide (multiple sugars) consisting of 250 to 50,000 disaccharide units (double sugar). The long molecule forms very intricate networks. Due to this spatial structure, it can bind a lot of water and thus contribute to the stability and friction-free movement of the joints. Hyaluronic acid flows the viscosity of the synovial fluid with its properties such as lubricating, steaming and filtering. In the skin area, hyaluronic acid ensures elasticity and firmness of the connective tissue.
Hyaluronic acid ingested with food only remains in the body quickly. Thus, the body has to provide for supplies constantly. The body’s production diminutions with increasing age, which can contribute to the typical signs of ageing: wrinkling, joint problems, problems in the intervertebral spaces, etc
There are four different types:
Hyaluronic acid injections:
This type is often very effective and very expensive and can cause side effects.
2. Hyaluronic acid eye drops:
Hyaluronic acid in eye drops supports the natural tear film by allowing it to store more moisture. With dry eyes, the unpleasant symptoms are relieved quickly and permanently. We recommend the products from Halo, as their hyaluronic acid is formed through fermentation, and they contain no other sensitive ingredients. You can find details about this at www.hylo.ch or directly in your Pill pharmacy or drugstore.
3. Hyaluronic acid capsules are used to supply hyaluronic acid to skin cells and joints throughout the body.
4. Hyaluronic acid creams and gels are mainly applied to the face to provide the skin with an ideal supply of hyaluronic acid.
Since hyaluronic acid gels usually contain highly concentrated hyaluronic acid, only a tiny amount is necessary. If a gel includes high and low molecular hyaluronic acid, an effect on the skin and an additional effect on the skin cells can be achieved.
The products provide moisture and help with wrinkles in the long term. We recommend the highly concentrated hyaluronic acid gel from Pill Cosmetics. The exclusive gel texture is quickly absorbed and is ideal for all skin types. Thanks to its unique structure and molecular weight between 400 and 1000 kDa, the micro fragmented hyaluronic acid works on three levels:
1. It lies entirely on the skin’s surface, providing moisture and making it smooth, even, supple and silky.
2. It settles on the bottom of the folds, swells up and plumps up the folds – with a visible effect that lasts four to five hours after application.
3. It acts as a skin cell filler and, with long-term use, improves the skin’s elasticity and reduces the depth of wrinkles. Effect In the short term, acid helps with dry skin. On the other hand, acid does not act immediately on the skin cells.
The first effects can only be visible after several weeks or months. Then the acid molecules are so filled with moisture that they make the skin appear plumper and firmer. Unfortunately, wrinkles do not disappear, but they are much less visible and deep. the hyaluronic acid is broken down and broken down by the body, it must be used to maintain its effect regularly. So there are also simple alternatives that plump up the skin and visually rejuvenate it significantly.
How does hyaluronic acid work in creams?
Hyaluronic acid penetrates intensely into the skin and has a plumping effect with its ability to bind water. Almost all Eucain HYALURON-FILLER care products contain short and long-chain acid to replenish practical impact.
The fantastic thing about hyaluronate is its outstanding ability to bind a lot of water. It ensures a smooth, firm and full appearance in the skin, between the cells where acid is situated. Unfortunately, the body’s ability to produce acid itself deteriorates over time. And when the content of this skin’s substance decreases, the moisture content in the skin also decreases. As a result, the skin loses volume, elasticity and firmness – at the same time, the wrinkles deepen.
So it’s no wonder that acid is one of the most commonly used ingredients when it comes to anti-ageing products. What happens now when a care product with acid is applied to the skin – preferably the face? Most Eucain hyaluronic filler products contain both short-chain and long-chain hyaluronic.
The long-chain molecules cannot penetrate the deeper layers of the skin – they remain on the skin and have an immediate effect there:
They store moisture there and strengthen the natural skin barrier. The short-chain (40 times more minor) acid is quickly and deeply absorbed into the epidermal layers, where it is also well absorbed and tolerated due to its naturalness.
Where wrinkles would otherwise appear, it replenishes moisture and stimulate the skin’s acid production. Regular application ensures that ageing skin is better moisturized overall.
