why we love hyaluronic acid gel - and you should too!

We love Hyaluronic Acid Gel, which is commonly known as the Fountain of Youth due to its amazing skin rejuvenating qualities, giving your skin volume and fullness. And here is just a little information on why you should love it too.
  
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by your body to retain collagen, increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility, it already sounds pretty great, doesn't it?!
  
As you age, you have less hyaluronic acid, which is why you can start to see wrinkles and dryness in your skin. However, hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water molecules, so they stay on the surface of your skinkeeping it plump and hydrated. It also slows down the rate at which the water is evaporated, thus preventing TEWL (Trans-epidermal water loss). This improved hydration of your skin will also improve the appearance fine lines and wrinkles. This is what makes hyaluronic acid such a great addition to anti-ageing products and why it is found in so many of the big high street stores anti-ageing creams.
  
Not only does it help promote healthier and younger looking skin, it also can help speed up the healing of wounds and relieve joint pain as it lubricates your joints. It is also known to be a life safer when it comes to dry eyes - it really is an all rounder! 
  
Some hyaluronic acid is made from poultry, however ours is not, so is a great vegan / cruelty-free alternative, made by producing enzymes from a bacteria-based biofermentation process. So you can have great skin, guilt-free!
  
Here is a great recipe for a Neroli Hydrating Spritzer, written by Karen Gilbert. As we go into Winter the less humid, cold air along with hot baths and everyone cranking their heating up means that our skin will be deprived of moisture. Having a refreshing, hydrating facial spritzer on hand is just what you'll need!
