The key to healthy, smooth, and radiant looking skin is hydration. Well hydrated skin is important at every age, but even more so in mature skin. Did you know that between the ages of 40 to 50 your skin has lost 50% of the hydration that it had at age 20? Dry skin makes us look older because it increases the appearance of fine line and wrinkles; especially in sun damaged skin.
There is a significant difference between moisturizers and hydrators. Moisturizers temporarily improve the top layer of skin while hydrators (hyaluronic acid – HA) penetrate into the dermis and hydrate at an intercellular level. Because of this, moisturizers do not solve the hydration problem that HA does. HA is a natural ‘water loving’ substance found in the skin. Because it occurs naturally in the skin, allergic reactions are extremely rare. Luckily, our skin is resilient and through proper hydrating, damage can be reversed. HA’s are an excellent choice for all skin types including oily and acne prone skin.
Skin Medica recently launched HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator. HA5 is a powerful blend of hyaluronic acids that work synergistically:
- to minimize irritation
- act as an antioxidant
- improve the quality of the skin (elasticity)
- provide a skin barrier for skin renewal
- enhance cell survival (stress resistance)
HA5 was created specifically to deliver treatment throughout the day; immediate hydration and time released. It is scientifically cross-linked for hydration lasting up to eight hours. HA5 is recommended for use twice daily after applying TNS Recovery Complex.
In a Skin Medica study, 96% of patients reported HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator immediately made their skin feel smooth and soft. After eight weeks of twice daily use 91% of patients stated their skin felt more refreshed and better moisturized. This treatment product contains a higher concentration of medical grade ingredients than can be found in over the counter versions.
For more supple, youthful looking skin make Skin Medica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator a part of your skin care regimen.
