What is Hyaluronic Acid Lbel?
Often mentioned, but seldom understood, the Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein that occurs in all tissues of our body. And that combines amino acids and natural sugars. It is a protein known for its hydration benefits and for improving the appearance of wrinkles for renewed skin.
It has a moisturizing effect on our skin, thanks to its great absorption capacity that maintains hydration for longer. A biostimulatory effect, thanks to the amino acids and sugars that compose it. These same components give it a repairing and regenerating effect. In addition, hyaluronic acid is one of those responsible for the support and resistance of tissues to mechanical forces and also helps to scavenge free radicals.
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in our body and due to its multiple properties it has been synthesized for external use. It can be found in different dermo-cosmetic products and in some fillers for specialized use, such as LIBERTAGE NOCTURNE BY L'BEL
If it decreases or I start to lose it, what happens to my skin?
The loss of hyaluronic acid causes dehydration, atrophy or loss of elasticity and luminosity of the skin.
It degrades naturally and is constantly renewed. Over the years, the degradation of hyaluronic acid accelerates and the recovery mechanisms are lost. In addition, solar radiation and other light sources, such as shades, lamps, etc., activate enzymes that degrade hyaluronic acid (MPPM). Likewise, diets rich in sugar are also responsible for speeding up this process.
Around the age of 30, the hyaluronic acid degradation process accelerates and the regeneration processes slow down. In very white people, with genetic predisposition or very exposed to the sun, it can be even earlier.
What can I do to avoid losing it?
Avoiding excessive sun exposure, avoiding cigarettes, and maintaining a low-sugar, high-fiber diet can help slow the rate at which we lose hyaluronic acid. And also to maintain the balance between its production and natural degradation. You can help enhance this balance by complementing the aforementioned care with the use of a specialized treatment with hyaluronic acid.
Is it possible to get it back?
The key is to avoid the imbalance between its natural degradation and constant production. Products that contain hyaluronic acid help us maintain it and also stimulate its natural production.
There are treatments that stimulate the production of natural proteins in the skin such as hyaluronic acid. There are also treatments in which hyaluronic acid is directly replenished.
In addition, hyaluronic acid exists in many foods of animal origin, but its oral consumption has not been shown to reflect on the skin.
