Tips & Tricks: What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Posted on 08/08/2013

Shop b-glowing.com here.

Hyaluronic acid. It's the ingredient you've heard about, but may not really know. In this week's 'Tips & Tricks', b-glowing.com put on a lab coat and gives you the lowdown on this commonly-used anti-aging miracle ingredient.

Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan or HA, occurs naturally in our bodies, but decreases as we get older. It enables our bodies to retain moisture, keeps our joints lubricated, and keeps our skin smooth, elastic, and full.

In 2003, the FDA approved the use of HA as an injectable to fill wrinkles, remove scars, and plump lips - also known as Restylane injections. HA is also commonly used to replace fluid in joints, treat eczema, and heal tissue post eye surgery.

Because of its multiple cosmetic benefits, HA has gradually made its way into the beauty industry as a topical treatment for anti-aging and skin restoration. Hyaluronic acid's ability to bind moisture to the surface of the skin, while still allowing oxygen through, makes it a perfect addition to hydrating creams, serums and liquid makeup.

Several b-glowing.com brands have incorporated HA into their product formulas, like BY TERRY, Peter Thomas Roth, and Goldfaden MD. We continue to see this effective ingredient in anti-aging skincare brands and products we bring on.

ELLE magazine Executive Beauty Editor, April Long, shared her passion for luxe skin serums with a review of Tammy Fender Bulgarian Rose Water.

" … when I discovered Tammy Fender Bulgarian Rose Water, it was love at first sniff. So far, I've splashed it on as a toner, decanted some into a spray bottle for on-the-go complexion revival, and doused cotton pads with it to soothe puffy eyelids. With 7,000 petals in every drop, rose essence doesn't come cheap, but maybe that's a good thing. Otherwise, I'd probably bathe in the stuff."

Tammy Fender Bulgarian Rose Water: This pampering skincare product strengthens and tones the delicate tissues of your skin, balancing and restoring energy, and leaving the complexion supple and revitalized.

Allure magazine reports on repairing your hair from post-summer sun damage.

Oscar Blandi At Home Salon Glaze: Restore chlorine-stripped hair back to a rich, shiny hue. This rich, color-preserving glaze prevents fading, adds moisture, brightens your hair, and protects from heat damage. We love how this simple and convenient treatment transforms our dull locks in the comfort of our own home!

bliss Fat Girl Slimulator: This rubber massage tool is perfect for stimulating the skin, prepping it for follow-up cellulite-reducing products like FatGirlSlim. It can also be used as an applicator for these products. Purchase the FatGirlSlim Treatment Set to receive the Slimulator, and introductory-sized FatGirlSlim, FatGirlSleep, and FatGirlScrub.
