Hyaluronic acid is widely found in the human body, specially in our joints, eyes and skin. These days, hyaluronic acid can be used not only as part of our cosmetic beauty routine, but also to help sooth pain and regenerate tissue areas when taken orally.
We have all heard hyaluronic helps to rejuvenate and helps having a plumper moisture looking skin, why does this happen? Well, Hyaluronic helps to retain water in areas that are dull and aged looking due to external damaging factors, sun damage, cold temperatures, etc.
Hyaluronic has two molecule densities: high and low. The low, has a smaller molecule density that will penetrate your skin or tissue much deeper; Whereas the higher one will stay in the outer layers of your skin. This is why it is always best to use low density for better skin results.
It can be widely found in lotions, creams, serums, and it can even be injected into your skin. I am personally using only serum right now and the out of all that I have tried, the one that has had more impact in my skin results is a homemade one! Yes, you are reading right. I purchased a homemade one once and it worked wonders. The good thing about making it yourself is that you can control and make sure there is only high quality hyaluronic and nothing else.
Do you want to know how to make it? Follow these instructions and you will have it in no time:
- Buy high quality hyaluronic acid– low molecular density- to penetrate your skin and retain water. Take about 1/8 of a spoon of hyaluronic acid diluted into 1/4 of a cup of distilled water. The reason for using distilled water is to avoid any nasties that are added in the water.
- Mix both ingredients well.
- Let it rest overnight. The acid should thicken to a serum consistency, if not, you can add a spoon of glycerin to create a serum like base, but those two main ingredients should work perfectly fine without the use of glycerin. Keep the mix refrigerated and make sure it is used within 2 to 3 months. Storing the mixture is also important, make sure you choose a clean tinted glass container. Apply every morning before your cream onto your face, neck, undereyes and lips, you will see the effects almost immediately. Remember, you should do this on a regular basis, consistency is the key.
Hope you guys try this recipe and you will see immediate results.
