Let’s Talk: What is hyaluronic Acid ? And Why we use it in our Spray Tans ?
Hyaluronic acid helps repair damaged skin.Hyaluronic acid is something our body already produces. In addition to repairing skin this Spray tan also has the ability to lessen the appearance of wrinkles And fine lines .Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times it’s Molecular weight in water. When hyaluronic acid protects and hydrates the skin ,it allows for the production of New skin cells. And what does the production of new skin cells equal? Plumper ,Younger and smoother skin.
Hyaluronic acid is also a Humectant . Meaning it acts like a sponge. Absorbing the moisture from the air/environment, to then penetrate your skin. Not only does it hydrate the skin it also helps Rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. The acid also helps repair the lipid layer. The lipid layer is the layer of our skin that filters out all the toxins. This layer of our skin is always working overtime. So the hyaluronic acid helps with repairing this layer of the skin, that does so much work in keeping our bodies safe, and free of toxins.
Hyaluronic acid also helps to fight age spots and hyperpigmentation . Due To the increase cell turnover when using this product. One misconception that I see in regards to hyaluronic acid is that if you have oily skin you should not use it. Hyaluronic acid not only hydrates the skin but moderates the production of oil, To prevent over Production of oil which Leads to breakouts and clogged pores.
