Under the microscope: Hyaluronic Acid

Say hello to super ingredient #2

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – the one ingredient you need to boost your skin’s moisture, just don’t let the word ‘acid’ put you off.

This miracle molecule is already naturally produced by our bodies, however, as we age, our natural Hyaluronic Acid levels decrease, and that loss of moisture means drier and dull-looking skin.

Hyaluronic Acid is effectively a gel-like, moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep skin plumped and hydrated. One molecule alone of Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water! Therefore, the addition of Hyaluronic Acid in fake tan is invaluable.

Hyaluronic Acid benefits:

  • Hydration – Hyaluronic Acid is a power-hydrator with a unique ability to bind and retain water molecules, meaning lines and wrinkles appear reduced.
  • Protection – Hyaluronic Acid has some antioxidant properties, meaning it can act as a barrier against environmental aggressors such as pollution.
  • Radiance – plumped and nourished skin feels firmer in texture and soft in touch, therefore, looks so much more radiant thanks to Hyaluronic Acid.
  • Universal – whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin or normal skin Hyaluronic Acid is beneficial to all skin types.

Both our Illuminating Bronzing Face Mist and award-winning Bronzing Body Mousse contain Hyaluronic Acid. The formula of Hyaluronic Acid combined with Aloe Vera, Collagen and CQ10 along with light-reflecting illuminators ensures skin tone is evened out, radiance is added, and confidence is boosted.
