Humidification is one of the most important stages of skin care. The lack of moisture in the skin layers leads to loss of elasticity, the formation of wrinkles and scaly spots. And in the moistening needs not only dry, but also oily skin of the face, regardless of the season.
In general, the level of moisture is affected by the amount of water we drink, the general health, the speed of recovery of hyaluronic acid in the dermis, and the natural moisturizing factor (a complex of horny layer molecules).
How can we protect ourselves from dry skin? It is recommended to periodically saturate the body with water, drinking a glass of cool water in the morning on an empty stomach and before each meal during the day; use appliances for humidifying indoor air; use sunscreen and have in their kit cosmetic products that include hyaluronic acid.
What is the "magic" of hyaluronic acid? Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizing factor and maintains the moisture and smoothness of the skin, creating optimal saturation of the subcutaneous tissue with water, which gives the skin of the face, neck, hands and body a fresh and resilient appearance. An interesting factor is that hyaluronic acid is a powerful antioxidant. It neutralizes free radicals that damage the fibers of elastin and collagen, and protects against ultraviolet radiation, infection, dirt. In the human body, it is produced naturally. Each molecule of hyaluronic acid is capable of attaching to itself more than five hundred molecules of water. Unfortunately, it can not accumulate exactly as fat deposits accumulate, so its reserves must be constantly replenished.

Marine glucosamines represent structural elements of hyaluronic acid and activate the formation of the latter. Japanese brown algae – a source of vitamins and trace elements, which delay and prevent the destruction of hyaluronic acid.
