Face Skin Hydration


Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, this is why it should be:

  • If skin is sufficiently hydrated, it feels super-soft, plump and pilloway and looks so much more radiant.
  • When skin is hydrated, lines and wrinkles (even the deeper ones) appear diminished, so it is a great ingredient for those with ageing skin who are desperate to cling on to their youthful perkiness.
  • It works wonders on everyone. 'Hyaluronic Acid works for any skin type even sensitive or breakout-prone skin, as well as those with an oily complexion.
  • Recent research suggests that Hyaluronic Acid also has antioxidant properties, which means it can act like a shield against free radicals we aren't in control of, like pollution and other aggressors.

Mechanism of Action

The use of biotinylated HA-binding peptide91 revealed that not only cells of mesenchymal origin were capable of synthesizing HA and permitted the histolocalization of HA in the dermal compartment of skin and the epidermis.26,92-94 This technique enabled the visualization of HA in the epidermis, mainly in the ECM of the upper spinous and granular layers, whereas in the basal layer HA is predominantly intracellular.

The function of the skin as a barrier is partly attributed to the lamellar bodies, thought to be modified lysosomes containing hydrolytic enzymes. They fuse with the plasma membranes of mature keratinocytes and they have the ability to acidify via proton pumps and partially convert their polar lipids into neutral lipids. Diffusion of aqueous material through the epidermis is blocked by these lipids synthesized by keratinocytes in the stratum granulosum. This boundary effect corresponds to the level of HA staining. The HA-rich area inferior to this layer may obtain water from the moisture-rich dermis, and the water contained therein cannot penetrate beyond the lipid-rich stratum granulosum. The hydration of the skin critically depends on the HA-bound water in the dermis and in the vital area of the epidermis, while maintenance of hydration essentially depends on the stratum granulosum. Extensive loss of the stratum granulosum in patients with burns may cause serious clinical problems due to dehydration

'Hyaluronic Acid (which you might find hiding on the labels of some of your skincare products as HA), is naturally occurring in the human body. The substance works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells retain as much of it as possible so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy.

Now for the science. Just a single gram of Hyaluronic Acid has the impressive ability to hold up to six liters of water. Add to that, a super smart ability to regulate that moisture within the cells, so as not to drown them.

As we age, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid our skin cells produce begins to lessen and cell turnover can become sluggish - this is when lines, wrinkles and rough texture tend to make their debut.

Thanks to the added Hyaluronic Acid in cleanser, Mask and Serum your skin feels hydrated almost instantly, making any serums or moisturisers you apply afterwards a bonus, not a necessity. Expert application at Dr. Rachi’s skin city will help you to optimize your needs clinically and maximize the benefit to you.

So, if you want to maintain your youthful glow, incorporating Hyaluronic Acid into your anti-ageing skincare routine is definitely a good idea.

Our expert dermatologist Dr.Rachiswayata will inject hyaluronic acid beneath skin which maintains moistures and decrease aging, promote healthy glowing softer young skin.

'Skin moisture can drop significantly as we age, says Indeed Laboratories'.'This makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of ageing on the skin. But Hyaluronic Acid acts as the ultimate drink for your skin.

No doubt it's a good moisturizing ingredient. If you're using a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, be careful. In very dry climates, this water-binding ingredient can't draw moisture from the environment, so it may actually start to pull moisture out of the deeper layers of your skin.
