Moisture Boosting Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid heroes to transform your skin

Whether your skin is dry, ageing, sensitive or normal, ensuring it stays hydrated is key to keeping it healthy and looking beautiful. Hydrated skin means it has greater suppleness and elasticity, fewer wrinkles and that much coveted plumped effect, without having to resort to needles and fillers.

Our bodies do a fantastic job at helping us to naturally hydrate our skin but it’s important, particularly as we age, that we top this up by regularly drinking water and using a hydrating moisturiser day and night to keep complexions comfortable and the skin barrier intact. There are literally hundreds of cosmetic ingredients available that promise to moisturise and hydrate but hyaluronic acid is one of my favourites, for its skin quenching abilities and gentleness, even the most sensitive skins.

Described as the gold standard in moisture-boosting molecules and with the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid helps to keep moisture in the skin. Its unique structure helps to plump and fill in lines and wrinkles, transforming complexions to leave them looking volumised, refreshed and healthy.

Hyaluronic acid comes in various molecular sizes, which determines the benefits it has on the skin. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid features particles of a very small size, which can penetrate the skin more deeply, helping to plump up sagging complexions and fill in lines and wrinkles. High molecular weight hyaluronic acid does not penetrate the skin but instead creates a conditioning film to keep the skin moisturised. This transparent film helps to prevent water from evaporating from the skin, protecting it from further dehydration and premature ageing.

We’ve used hyaluronic acid in both molecular weights in a number of Organic Pharmacy skin care products; here are my favourites:

Hyaluronic Acid Serum
To plump and hydrate

Combining triple weight naturally derived hyaluronic acid at 0.2% with grapefruit oil and witch hazel, this nourishing gel-like serum sinks into the skin helping to infuse it with moisture. As well as plumping and filling fine lines and wrinkles and restoring volume to areas of slackness, it also helps to promote the production of collagen for skin firmness and elasticity, to leave skin looking smoother and more refined.

Rose Diamond Face Cream

Our rich, luxurious face cream brings together diamond powder, omega ceramide technology and hyaluronic acid to transform your skin in an instant, boosting radiance, suppleness and elasticity and reducing the amount of water that evaporates from the skin to leave it conditioned and comfortable and visibly toned and tighter.

Rose Diamond Eye Cream
Intense hydration and lift

Developed to hydrate, brighten and lift, this anti-ageing hero helps to fill the skin around the eye area, including the upper lid, blurring fine lines and wrinkles in one luxurious sweep. The intensely hydrating formula contains hyaluronic acid, derived from biotech algae, which has both a high and low molecular weight for immediate and long-lasting hydration and skin protection.

Margo recommends:
Don’t forget to include your neck and décolleté in your skin care regimen, as these areas are particularly susceptible to dehydration. For an extra moisture boost, apply our Hyaluronic Acid before our Breast, Neck & Bottom Enhancing Lotion to plump surface volume, smooth out lines and soften crepiness.
