Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally within our skin, it supports cell renewal, builds collagen and helps to keep skin looking plump and hydrated. Unfortunately, as we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid our skin produces decreases, causing our skin to become loose and lack volume. Along with many products, and treatments that can help to promote the production of collagen, there are also certain foods that can do this too.
Starchy root vegetables
Research suggests many vegetables help to encourage the production of collagen in our skin, especially starchy ones such as potatoes. Not only do potatoes boost your collagen production, but they also contain vital minerals and vitamins that the body needs such as magnesium and potassium.
Soy foods (including tofu, soy milk, soy yoghurt and more) all contain isoflavones which increase your oestrogen levels. This can help to boost your hyaluronic acid levels as one of the main properties of oestrogen is that it increases your hyaluronic acid production.
What better excuse to enjoy a small glass of red wine with your dinner than for it to increase your hyaluronic acid levels? Red wine contains the skin of grapes, which contains phytoestrogen and helps to promote the production of hyaluronic acid.
Products & treatments to help increase hyaluronic acid
Our Jet Facial uses hydradermabrasion to exfoliate and deeply cleanse the skin. Completely pain-free, this advanced treatment uses a jet of pressured air and water to remove any impurities from the skins surface. After the exfoliation, a bespoke combination of vitamins and hyaluronic acid is infused into the jet and applied all over the skin to rehydrate, leaving you with glowing, nourished skin.
Dermal fillers are a great treatment to help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, as well as adding lost volume to the face. Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid which is injected by a highly-trained Nurse or Doctor Practitioner. The dermal filler cannot help to shape and lift your skin, but it can also be injected into the lips to give you a fuller, plumper pout, and into the nose to give the illusion of a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
There are lots of different products that claim to help improve your skins hyaluronic acid levels, but our favourite (which have all been tried and tested) include, SkinCeuticals H.A Intensifier.
