It’s no secret that the appearance of our skin plays a major part in how we feel overall. Clear and glowing skin can help us to feel confident and irritated skin can leave us feeling stressed.
Understanding the benefits of hyaluronic acid, allantoin and collagen is a great way to feed your skin with the nutrients that it needs so you can feel your best.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Let’s talk science. Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a long chain of sugar molecules that is found naturally in the body. It plays a major role in keeping our skin tissue lubricated and moist.
As we age, our natural source of hyaluronic acid decreases causing dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles which is why it is essential to supplement the skin with hyaluronic acid products.
THE BENEFITS OF USING HYALURONIC ACID PRODUCTS
Hyaluronic acid is a dry skin saviour because its powerful hydrating properties target deep into our skin cells, making it much more effective than a moisturiser. This intense hydration helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to improve the skin’s overall tone and texture. It also supports our skin to retain the water it naturally loses every day and can also help prevent breakouts caused by dehydration.
WHAT IS ALLANTOIN?
Known as the soothing skincare ingredient, allantoin is a naturally occurring chemical compound that comes from the comfrey plant which is found in Asia and Europe.
Not spoken about as much as hyaluronic acid or collagen, but equally as important for skin health, allantoin has powerful healing, soothing and moisturising properties and is used to treat and protect skin from irritation, sensitivity and inflammation.
THE BENEFITS OF USING ALLANTOIN PRODUCTS
Allantoin is known as a multipurpose skincare ingredient because it offers a wide range of skin-friendly benefits. It helps to hydrate and soothe whilst gently exfoliating the skin to improve dullness.
Studies have found that allantoin can also help to reduce acne symptoms and frequently using allantoin products will improve your skin's barrier function.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body and is the main structural protein that is found in the space between connective tissues, especially in the dermis, the middle layer of skin that sits below the epidermis.
THE BENEFITS OF USING COLLAGEN PRODUCTS
Collagen provides our skin with strengthening benefits and is known for improving the overall health of the skin. Collagen products help to improve the elasticity of the skin, reduce fine lines and visible wrinkles and it also helps to increase blood flow to the skin.
