Hyaluronic Acid, the fountain of youth, the anti-ageing molecule

From all the tests we have tried with hyaluronic acid (HA), we found Eucerin one of the best. It keeps its promisses and has clear effects. Of course, don't expect any cream to make wonders and have a baby face right back but improvements can be visible during time. It needs a special routine and a daily care.

As we wanted to see the effects of hyaluronic acid on the face and neck, we chose Eucerin brand for a test.  The brand offered us three products from the Hyaluronic range : Eucerin Hyaluron Filler, Eye Contour, Eucerin Hyaluron Filler, Night Care and Eucerin Hyaluron Filler, Concentrated Precision.

Our target was clear : to fight the wrinkles, the fine and profound ones. And right from the beginning we must tell you a secret : for a cream or oil to work, you have to massage the area really well so the entire substance to pertrude underneath your whole epidermis. As the hyaluronic acid is a too big molecule to pass it, it need a lot of massaging. This can be tricky, that is why some women choose the injection filler which seem to work better. And also, that is why some say Hyaluronic acid is not an anti-age molecule but a great moisturizer only.

Tips and things on hyaluronic acid :

Every woman starts to think of wrinkles and anti ageing when they get to more and more anniversary milestones. Don't worry, though, wrinkles are a trait to appear at young people too, the fine lines for sure ! There are many things that fight the ageing. We wanted to focus on the hyaluronic acid, this substance that is part of our body componence. It is important to know that it is highly concentrated in the areas of the fluids of the eyes and joints.

Hyaluronic acid started to be used in medicine and beauty. It is one of the fillers that make your lips swallow and look more like a duck or having just a pump sensation.

You know from what is made the hyaluronic acid in medicine? Well, it is extracted from rooster combs and processed by bacteria in the laboratory. Creepy, right? But, what does a woman do to preserve her youth?!!

There is a story that this HA molecule called the « fountain of youth » was re-discovered back in the eighties after a reporter went to a Japanese village to find out how the people other there succeeded in preserving their youthful aspect. They said it was their eating habits like tofu and soya that contained an oestrogen molecule that sent signals to the brain and cells to produce more hyaluronic acid.

Benefits of the hyaluronic acid:

Scientific studies showed that HA has important functions like : skin improvement, skin hydration, skin elasticity, collagen stimulation,  antioxidant, antibacterial. HA is the only molecule that can retain as much water as possible, so here it goes for the smoothness effect! It is the perfect cushioning and lubrication agent in our bodies, especially for the joints, nerves, skin, hair and eyes.

With the age, the body produces less and less hyaluronic acid which, oops, it turns all the women mad! Dryness, wrinkled face, grumpy visage, sagging!  So, that is why all the women, beauty companies and anti-age seekers are all talking about this HA! Marketing for many, but for sure an excellent ingredient of our body that can help our look.

Eucerin routine:

After well cleaning the skin and neck face (adding the two times mask per week, too), I started the day with a morning massage focused on the wrinkles. I used the Concentrated Precision directly on the lines and massage in circular moves about 2 or 3 minutes on each spot. After this, I applied the daily moisturizer.

In the middle of the day, I used also the eye contour cream to preserve the moisturising effect all day.

In the evening, before going to bed and doing all the profound cleaning of the skin, I applied the night cream, from the Hyaluronic Filler range. In about 3 weeks after constant routine, massaging and moisturizing, the effects were visible.

Hold on, the wrinkles are still there! They have not been erased (unfortunately) but the skin is smoother and the aspect is better. So, I believe the HA concentration is very important, the daily routine has its word and additional moisturizers, nutritionals are also a big part of a healthy anti-ageing lifestyle.
