Who has never heard of hyaluronic acid? This “ anti-aging ” active ingredient which helps fight the effects of aging is now an essential part of skin care. What if we told you that one of the best ways to benefit from its benefits is in the form of food supplements?

In this article, we introduce you to the benefits of hyaluronic acid treatment for the skin.

Let yourself be guided towards plumped and hydrated skin!

I. The benefits of hyaluronic acid for the skin

Naturally present in the dermis, hyaluronic acid is a molecule that plays a key role in the hydration and firmness of the skin .

Unfortunately, its production decreases with age and a hyaluronic acid supplement is often necessary to help the skin maintain hydration and elasticity.

But first, how does hyaluronic acid work?

  • It works like a real sponge: it has the ability to attract and retain water , which allows the skin to maintain its hydration and keep its plump appearance. In short, it is thanks to hyaluronic acid that the skin maintains its firmness and maintains its fresh complexion.

  • Thanks to its hydrating power, hyaluronic acid helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps fill in the spaces between skin cells. It therefore offers our skin a real makeover!

  • And that's not all ! Hyaluronic acid will also help reduce dark spots by stimulating the production of collagen, which promotes cell regeneration.

  • “Meaning?🤔”: When skin cells don't renew themselves quickly enough, dead cells can build up, leading to the formation of dark spots. Hyaluronic acid therefore helps reduce their appearance and gives the skin a more uniform and luminous appearance.

  • The icing on the cake is that hyaluronic acid acts as an antioxidant . It therefore helps protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals (those nasty molecules that accelerate the skin aging process).

II. What are the different uses of hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is used in several different ways.

1) Injections

The famous injections! They are often used to fill wrinkles and restore lost volume. Choosing injections is the most direct method to deliver hyaluronic acid into the deeper layers of the skin.

✅ Advantages : Results are generally immediate and long-lasting (compared to creams or supplements).

❌ Disadvantages : They can cause side effects such as swelling, pain, redness and bruising. They are also often expensive and must be renewed regularly.

Be careful to always contact a qualified and trusted health professional before starting out!

2) Hyaluronic acid creams

Hyaluronic acid creams work by hydrating and retaining water in the skin.

✅ Benefits : Hyaluronic acid delivered in creams helps moisturize and improve the elasticity of the skin.

❌ Disadvantages : The hyaluronic acid contained in certain creams (high molecular weight hyaluronic acid) penetrates all layers of the skin with difficulty. This therefore makes skin hydrated "on the surface", and therefore a questionable anti-wrinkle action...

Whatever your choice, be sure to always choose a quality cream delivered by a trusted brand.

3) Hyaluronic acid treatment with food supplements

Taken orally, hyaluronic acid food supplements provide the molecule directly to the body.

✅ Advantages : The action of hyaluronic acid in capsules is global on the skin and connective tissues. Improves hydration, elasticity and firmness of the skin. The skin is deeply hydrated .

❌ Disadvantages : It may take time to produce visible effects. Their effectiveness depends on the hyaluronic acid content, which can vary from one product to another.

Just as with injections or creams, before consuming food supplements it is important to turn to a trusted, transparent brand with clean active ingredients for your health.

III. Hyaluronic acid treatment with food supplements

Opting for a quality hyaluronic acid treatment is a great option to make up for the age-related lack of hyaluronic acid.

At Novoma, we have opted for a form of highly assimilable hyaluronic acid , patented ExceptionHYAL® star, which we have combined with vitamin C, known for its antioxidant properties and its positive impact on skin health.

It is a duo that is often found in beauty routines, with clinically proven effectiveness (find all the information directly on our product sheet).

Speaking of which, have you seen our Beauty Pack to take care of skin, hair and nails?

How does a treatment take place?

A treatment involves the supplementation of hyaluronic acid in capsules to be taken orally and generally lasts several weeks to several months, depending on the desired objectives. It is important to respect the recommended doses: 100 to 200 mg of hyaluronic acid per day is often recommended for optimal effect.

The hyaluronic acid treatment for everyone?

Not quite. People with autoimmune diseases as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women should be particularly vigilant and consult their doctor before starting supplementation.

When to start your treatment?

As we saw previously, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases with age . This causes dehydration of the skin and a loss of firmness: Hello, there are the wrinkles! 🙂

But the signs of skin aging (which can appear in your twenties 😒) don't stop there. They can also manifest as:

  • The appearance of brown spots;
  • Loss of skin elasticity;
  • Enlarged pores;
  • Dry, dull skin;
  • Dark circles and bags under the eyes;
  • Increased sensitivity of the skin to environmental factors.

These signals indicate that the time may have come to start a hyaluronic acid treatment .

☝🏼️Please note that it is not necessary to wait for the first signs of aging to start your treatment, you can anticipate your skin's needs to prevent and delay their appearance.
