Hyaluronic acid has become a buzzword in the world of skincare, especially when it comes to anti-aging and wrinkle reduction. Its use has extended to cosmetic surgery, offering injections to rejuvenate the skin. But what exactly is hyaluronic acid, and how can you incorporate it into your daily skincare routine?

Understanding Hyaluronic Acid:
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in skin tissues, working alongside collagen to provide structural support to the skin. It's known for its remarkable ability to hydrate the skin. Acting like a sponge, hyaluronic acid draws and retains moisture, capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This hydration powerhouse not only enhances skin resilience and suppleness but also smoothens wrinkles and fine lines, promoting a revitalized complexion. Additionally, it fortifies the hydrolipidic film, the skin's protective barrier, safeguarding against environmental damage. However, it's important to note that our body's hyaluronic acid reserves diminish over time.

The Decline of Hyaluronic Acid with Age:
As we age, our skin's hyaluronic acid levels naturally decrease due to slower metabolic activity and reduced natural production. Starting from our 20s, the skin loses about 10% of its hyaluronic acid content every decade. By the time we reach 50, nearly half of our initial hyaluronic acid stock is depleted. Environmental factors, such as pollution, blue light exposure, and UV rays, further expedite this loss, diminishing the skin's natural hyaluronic acid resources.

The Role of Hyaluronic Acid in Skin Aging:
The reduction in hyaluronic acid weakens the hydrolipidic film, leading to decreased water retention and heightened vulnerability to external aggressors. The skin's structure deteriorates, resulting in loss of tone and the emergence of wrinkles. Replenishing the skin's hyaluronic acid can effectively counteract these signs of aging, promoting a more youthful appearance.

Replenishing Hyaluronic Acid:
Cosmetics formulated with hyaluronic acid are highly effective in compensating for its loss. Hyaluronic acid with a lower molecular weight penetrates deeper into the skin layers, enhancing its biological activity. Conversely, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid operates at the skin's surface, smoothing its texture and diminishing wrinkle appearance. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid offers a filling effect from within, stimulating growth factors for thicker skin and increased cell proliferation.

Payot's Solution for Hyaluronic Acid Replenishment:
Payot introduces the Lisse skincare range, featuring a blend of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acids, aiming to restore the skin's hyaluronic acid balance. The range includes:

1. Plumping Booster Serum: A gel rich in hyaluronic acid for smoother, fuller skin. It can be used alone as a mask or beneath the Wrinkle Smoothing Cream to shield the skin from daily harmful factors like blue light.

2. Wrinkle Smoothing Cream: A day cream that safeguards the skin's natural hyaluronic acid reserves from daily environmental stressors.

3. Resurfacing Sleeping Cream: An overnight solution with hibiscus AHAs, offering a gentle exfoliation to aid skin regeneration, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance upon waking.

4. 10-day Radiance Express Cure: A rapid solution for instant results, alternating between retinol and hyaluronic acid. These renovating and plumping ampoules stimulate cell renewal and make up for the age-related decline in hyaluronic acid production. The outcome is visibly younger-looking skin, with reduced wrinkles and a fuller, more radiant complexion.

Incorporating hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine can significantly combat signs of ageing, leaving your skin rejuvenated, hydrated, and protected from daily stressors.
