UNIK beauty : Hyaluronic acid ~ hero beauty ingredient

You may have heard about hyaluronic acid and the benefits it has for your skin as it is used in many serums, moisturises and injectables. But what is hyaluronic acid, and why is it so beneficial to your skin?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. It is found in our eyes and joints, keeping them moist and lubricated to function correctly. It also plays a significant role in skin health, keeping skin hydrated and plump. A humectant, meaning it can retain and preserve moisture, thus keeping your skin hydrated for longer, hyaluronic acid is what gives youthful skin that soft, supple look and feel.

Like all the good things (collagen, elastin), hyaluronic acid (HA) slowly declines with age; however, there are ways to get it in and on our bodies. Eating a diet high in fruit and veggies rich in antioxidants helps retain HA as well as skincare containing HA.

But when it comes to skincare, not all HA are created equally. Some have a higher molecular weight, therefore, do not penetrate deep enough into your skin, thus just sitting at the surface not allowing any of the HA benefits into your skin. Ensure your beauty products contain HA with a low molecular weight, such as sodium hyaluronate or hydrolysed hyaluronic acid, which can penetrate deeper into your skin layers. This attracts and binds water to plump the skin and therefore reducing the signs of wrinkles and making your skin look younger.

Hyaluronic botanical serum by theseeke contains high levels of sodium hyaluronate as well as rosa damascena p. Miller hydrosol (flowers from the certified organic rose fields in Bulgaria) and rose geranium, which makes this serum feel and smell amazing on your skin.

After researching hyaluronic acid and trying Hyaluronic Botanical Serum by theseeke, we are delighted to share this miracle product with you.

For maximum effect try the Hyaluronic serum together with Rejuvenate, a nourishing facial moisturiser  that also helps regenerate skin cells. Shop this power skincare duo and more of theseeke's natural beauty products online at UNIK SPACE or in our showroom in Brookvale, Sydney.
