Hyaluronan – A Natural Anti-Aging Skin Treatment
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Hence, it is the first part of the human body that would show signs of deterioration or aging. As such, an individual, for vanity or self preservation purposes, takes much attention and care towards maintaining healthy and youthful skin.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also called hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a substance naturally present in the skin and spinal fluid. It is distributed widely throughout the tissues, particularly in the connective and epithelial tissues. HA is vital in the proliferation and migration of the human cells. An average person, 70 kg or 154 lbs, has approximately 15 grams of HA. In man and in plants, it hydrates the cells. About a third of this HA decays or disintegrates every day, hence aging or old age occurs.
To delay aging and combat the effects of environmental pollution, cigarette smoking, and other consequences of bad habits, skin rejuvenation and skin treatments gain popularity. To increase skin moisture and elasticity and halt overproduction of oil, HA presence or production in the body must be increased or supplemented. To repair damage skin and keep the supple youthful glow, hyaluronic acid serum was formulated and marketed as a moisturizer and an anti aging treatment. It is popular with women and men alike.
HA serum is a naturally derived product that has three major ingredients: water, nitrogen, and hyaluronic acid. It facilitates the preservation of the natural HA in the body. A good formulation is that kind that can penetrate the micro-pores of the skin. It should inhibit or slow down the inherent human enzyme to break down the natural HA in the body. With more available HA in the body, natural collagen and elastin proteins can make the skin elastic and radiant, reducing wrinkles and making the skin smooth and young-looking. The HA serum treatment aims to reverse aging symptoms just like having a non-surgical face lift.
