Dull, dry, sagging skin is a direct result of age, gravity, sun damage, hormone changes and a declining ability to retain water in the skin caused by a loss of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in the skin and increased water loss from the surface of the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) plays a critical role in the skin. A single HA molecule can bind over 1000 times its weight in water giving the skin “structure” while also providing resources necessary to produce new collagen and elastin. As we age, however, sun damage and hormone changes reduce the skin’s ability to produce this much needed resource. A middle aged adult only generates ½ to ¼ of the HA produced by a child – resulting in the loss of volume and sagging we associate with age.
Moisturizers act by reducing water loss from the skin. Emollients and essential fatty acids (EFAs) are two common methods to help reduce water loss, keeping the skin soft and hydrated.
Jan Marini Skin Research’s award-winning hyaluronic acid skin products go beyond simple hydration. Our range of HA and hydration solutions feature multiple forms of HA for deep, long-lasting hydration along with carefully selected moisturizers and EFAs for added surface water retention.
