Summer has arrived and that’s good news – it’s time for lots of sun and fun, outdoor activities and hopefully, vacation! The bad news – it’s already so hot. Much of the country has already experienced record high temperatures and summer is just getting started. We’ve talked and talked about the importance of drinking water and staying hydrated but during these hot summer months, we need even more hydration, not only for our body but for our skin too. Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir with its Hyaluronic Acid is going to give you just that - the hydration your skin and body crave!
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the perfect humectant. Also known as hyaluronan, it is a clear viscous substance that is naturally produced by our bodies. Its main function is to retain water to keep our tissues well lubricated and moist with the largest amounts of it found in the skin, connective tissue and eyes. Fun fact: the HA in our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water! And not only is it retaining all that moisture in our skin and joints, it’s also preventing that moisture from evaporating into the air.
About half of the HA in the body is found in the skin. Its job in the skin is to hold water and keep skin hydrated and plump (which we know leads to healthy, younger looking skin!). HA is also found in the joints where it keeps the space between your bones lubricated. When lubricated, the bones are less likely to grind against each other and cause pain.
Just like collagen and elastin, the amount of naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies decreases as we get older. And it’s the same things that cause the decline in the skin that we’ve discussed before – the natural ageing process combined with environmental factors like UV exposure and pollution. By adding an HA supplement to your routine, you are helping your skin and body stay hydrated.
