Experts recommend drinking 64 ounces of water every day for optimal health, and the importance of daily hydration is common knowledge in every corner of the world. However, experts talk far less about directly hydrating the skin. While drinking water partially protects our skin from drying out, direct application of a hydrating hyaluronic acid solution is like a refreshing gulp of water for your body’s largest organ.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that can help your skin remain hydrated and healthy, regardless of your daily water intake. When regularly applied and combined with other oils in novel solutions, it can significantly improve the appearance, feel, and health of your skin.
The Importance of Staying Hydrated
You may think of dry and dehydrated skin as a minor or seasonal annoyance, but when left untreated, dry skin can worsen into atopic dermatitis, as well as cracked and chronically irritated areas of skin that increase your chances of infection. On the other hand, regularly hydrating the skin leaves it looking smooth, supple and radiant.
Research has shown that giving your skin proper hydration can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also increasing skin elasticity—the ability of your skin to snap back into place, rather than droop or sag. Additionally, hydrated skin is healthier skin, as it offers better protection against environmental forces (sun, wind, airborne particles), and eliminates metabolic toxins produced by the body more effectively. Finally, for those who suffer from oily skin, proper hydration can balance the production of oils by our sebaceous glands, preventing that unwanted shine of oily skin.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is to skin hydration what stretching is to muscle health. This naturally occurring molecule is an essential aspect of skin hydration and health, particularly because it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water! Hyaluronic acid forms a resilient barrier over the skin that prevents water loss, making it an ideal hydrator and moisturizer.
Skin care products that utilize hyaluronic acid as a core component can be used daily to revitalize, nourish and protect the skin. For those suffering from cracked, painful, or chronically irritated skin, hyaluronic acid solutions can be used multiple times per day for faster relief. While hyaluronic acid is clearly a powerful element on its own, it is even more effective when combined with carrier oils, especially rosehip oil.
The Benefits of Rosehip Oil
Rosehip oil has been trusted for its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties for thousands of years, but its use as a carrier oil is modern development. Some essential oils and acids are too intense to apply directly to the skin, but carrier oils like rosehip allow your skin to safely enjoy the benefits from these concentrated oils. Furthermore, with its high concentration of vitamin A and E, fatty acids, polyphenols, and other antioxidants, rosehip oil offers its own moisturizing and UV-protective qualities.
NeuLuna Day and Night Cream
Combining the hydrating powers of hyaluronic acid and rosehip oil, NeuLuna's Day and Night Cream has been carefully designed to amplify the benefits of both key ingredients. The patented formula increases the absorption of the natural acid and seals in moisture. The hyaluronic acid works together with rosehip oil to boost the skin’s natural defenses, reduce inflammation, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
