You’ve probably seen hyaluronic acid becoming more prevalent in the skin care aisles as several brands are introducing it to their customers and promoting it on their labels. We’ve been fans of this ingredient for quite some time thanks to its moisturizing and anti-aging properties.
Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural substance, partially made up of sugar, that your body already produces. It’s prevalent in the make-up of your skin and it’s also found in your joints and other connective tissue throughout your body.
As you might imagine, the fact it’s found in your joints means it’s a moisture-intense ingredient. But it doesn’t just moisturize. Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to hold several times its volume of hydration. That means it helps your skin boost its moisture content as a whole, making it more supple to absorb products and stay hydrated. The results are more youthful looking skin. It’s also reparative, helping to alleviate or tone down common skin conditions like acne, sun damage, and rosacea.
Using products featuring hyaluronic acid are often recommended for those having injectables because it allows skin to better respond. In addition, many injectables themselves have sodium hyaluronate, the sodium salt found in hyaluronic acid.
Some of our favorite products include this ingredient, like Lucrece Eye Contour Cream and iS Clinical® Body Complex. It’s also part of the Fire & Ice Facial, a signature service of the iS Clinical® brand that partners a resurfacing masque experience (fire) and rejuvenating masque experience (ice) together into one treatment that leaves skin firmer and smoother.
This November, we’re offering the Fire & Ice Facial for just $75 (reg. $99). Interested in spicing it up? Call 765-644-6028 or stop by to learn more and book your appointment today.
