Our skin has many ways to tell you that it’s dry, it can be caused by many things. "Everything from pollution and sun exposure to wind, air-con and central heating can sap the much-needed water in our skin," explains skin expert and facialist Debbie Thomas. Keeping your skin hydrated is key for all skin types and can be helpful to postpone the effects of ageing. It can be achieved through little things like drinking the recommended amount of water and applying hydrating skincare including hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Polyglutamic Acid.
What is Polyglutamic Acid?
"Polyglutamic acid is an exciting new ingredient that will leave skin smooth, plump and radiant," reveals Mark Curry. This incredible ingredient derived from fermented soybeans, has been heralded as being 10x more hydrating than Hyaluronic Acid!
When applied topically, Polyglutamic Acid can flood your skin with hydrating so it appears plump and youthful. "What makes it different to hyaluronic acid is that it forms a film on the skin that stops water from evaporating, so not only is it a humectant that draws more water into the cells, it holds it there too." says Mark Curry.
As we age our skin loses elasticity, which helps to create fine lines and wrinkles. Polyglutamic Acid helps to avoid this by boosting your skin’s elasticity better than Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid. It also works to enhance your skin’s elasticity more than Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid.
Polyglutamic Acid also works to nourish your skin, leaving it feeling smoother and looking better than it did before. It also works to improve your skin’s natural exfoliation process which helps to even out your complexion and minimise pigmentation.
Can I use Hyaluronic Acid and Polyglutamic Acid?
When used together Hyaluronic Acid and Polyglutamic Acid can be incredible for hydrating your skin. Polyglutamic Acid works to form a protective film on your skin and prevents water from evaporating from the surface of your skin. Whereas Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the lower levels of your complexion. Together they hydrate your skin completely to relieve tight and dehydrated skin as well as plumping skin and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
