Hyaluronic Acid...A True Miracle for the Skin

Did you know that our skin is actually our largest organ? Our “birthday suit,” will be with us all of our lives, and yet it is so often mistreated, abused and battered. For something that protects us and keeps our bodies regulated you'd think we'd be more apt to taking better care of it. We scrape it, pick at it, blister it, expose it to sunlight...and yet we somehow still wonder how we can't maintain that “newborn” skin all of our lives. Enter: Max and Madeleine. Clean, pure, toxin free, organic ingredients blended to blissfully–and gently–nourish our skin. While we all so often pick up a bag of chips and immediately flip it over to read its ingredient contents, we don't always do the same with our beauty products. Why is it that we're so concerned with what's going into our bodies, but not as concerned with what's going on them? Taking a peak at ingredients can be pretty telling about a brand, and it's products. Knowing what's in a particular product before using it can also help you to avoid unsightly and uncomfortable reactions. Max and Madeleine products always ensure the utmost quality in their ingredients, offering 100% toxin free products. There is one particular ingredient you should get to know a little bit better, though. We're talking about Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that can help to eliminate and soothe a number of skin problems that we're all looking to avoid–sun damage, dryness, decreased elasticity, the list goes on, and on. As it turns out, we're actually born with high levels of Hyaluronic acid–yes, it sounds like something our body's wouldn't produce naturally, but it actually does! According to Vogue, Hyaluronic acid is “a natural component of your skin,” and as babies, that's when our levels are at their highest. As Vogue says, and as we all know, a baby's skin is incredibly “soft, full and smooth.” As we age though, our levels of Hyaluronic acid decrease, leaving us with less supple, plump, “baby soft” skin. While you may not be able to increase your levels of Hyaluronic acid, you may still be able to bring back some of its benefits by using a product that contains Hyaluronic acid. As The Oz Blog explains, by using a serum that “contains Hyaluronic acid...you will see benefits in the form of softer, smoother, more hydrated skin.” When it comes to skin ailments, one of the most common (and stubborn) battles people of all age ranges face is pimples, and breakouts. What we may think will be only a teenage, puberty-induced problem, sometimes follows us well into adulthood. We break out for a multitude of reasons, none of which can be specifically pin pointed or blamed. It could be hormonal, our diet, our skin type– whether we're classified as oily, or dry–no one is exempt. Max and Madeleine incorporates Hyaluronic acid into their Banish! Spot Treatment product because of its benefits, and because of it's ability to work well with all skin types. Acne serums are notorious for causing skin to become dried out, and in some cases, flaky. By incorporating Hyaluronic acid hydration can be increased, helping to avoid excess dryness. So, when you're ready to give your skin the love and nourishment it so deserves check the ingredients list on you next beauty product purchase. See Hyaluronic acid? Give it a go, and let the visible benefits speak for themselves. If you've got sensitive skin, or you're worried that you may have a reaction, fear not, as The Oz Blog states, “Hyaluronic acid is one ingredient that works across the board. Every skin type, even oily, can benefit.”
