Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in skin known for its stunning capacity to attract and hold onto 1000x its weight in moisture. It works overtime by replenishing skin to enhance a healthy, supple look and feel. As we age, our natural hyaluronic acid levels deplete, and that loss of moisture means drier, rougher and lined skin. The moisture that hyaluronic acid attracts comes from your external environment, so it absorbs moisture from the air around you to leave skin plumped and hydrated.
Rosehip oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid. Fatty acids help to keep cell walls strong so that they don’t lose water. It also contains phenols that have been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Rosehip oil is high in vitamins A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol, encourages skin cell turnover. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects.
Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is found naturally in skin cells and is vital in energy production, hence assisting in the regeneration and repair of skin cells. As we get older we loose our natural source of CoQ10 and this may translate in tired looking skin. External sources play havoc on our skin and cause the release of free radicals which cause skin damage. CoQ10 is an antioxidant and assists in combating this oxidative stress and intern could help to maintain younger-looking skin for longer.
