Hyaluronic Acid – Why Is it Essential For Skin?

The research into the properties of Hyaluronan or Hyaluronic Acid are so numerous that Wikipedia alone lists 82 reference documents to support its article. It is considered an essential ingredient in good skin care and anti-aging products with good reason. Studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid plays a part in wound care and scar prevention and it is even considered a part of diabetic wound therapy.

What makes it so very important for skin and wound healing? The key thing to understand is that your body needs and uses Hyaluronic Acid daily whether or not you use any products containing it. Your body requires it for skin connectivity and renewal and for healthy joints and other connective tissue. One third of all your body’s store of Hyaluronan is “turned over” every day as your body renews cells damaged by age or external factors.

As a key component in connective tissue, Hyaluronic Acid is part of what keeps your skin supple, smooth, and not drooping or wrinkled. Preparations containing Hyaluronic Acid are smoothed onto skin and absorbed readily into the cellular layers boosting their ability to repair themselves and maintain an attractive level of hydration.

If so many skin care preparations contain Hyaluronic Acid, does it matter which one to use? The simple answer is yes, and this is why. Hyaluronic Acid is one ingredient in skin care but it may be a tiny fraction of the over all lotion you are using. There may be fillers, fragrances, preservatives, coloring agents and many other ingredients listed on the label. You want to buy an anti-aging cream that has a short ingredient list and a better percentage of active ingredients. You also do not want your skin care products to contain parabens, phthalates, fragrance, triclosans, or formaldehyde forming agents. Those can be potentially harmful and even contribute to aging.

That’s why we recommend the natural goodness of Mango Madness Skin Care’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Hydrospherex™ . You get the maximum therapeutic amount of Hyaluronic Acid with no animal testing or potentially risky adulterants.

Why Does Complexion Matter?

We hear people talking about female beauty and they speak of someone’s beautiful eyes. Or the dazzling smile or hair color. But, as any beauty queen can tell you, it only takes one pimple to change your whole level of confidence and self-esteem. It’s not like the day your hair doesn’t behave so you put it in a French twist and wear classy earrings. Nope, because of the skin thickening and the coloration of a blemish, really covering them up is not as easy as you would think. So complexion doesn’t get talked about as much but it is very important.

It is more logical than you would think because really, your skin is your biggest beauty asset. It covers every inch of you and subtly or not-so-subtly communicates details about you to other people. The state of your skin and coloring can let someone know you haven’t been well. The way your skin looks can signal your age to people you meet. Your skin can even communicate whether or not you are a smoker.

With that much power over your looks it just makes sense to treat your skin very well and make sure it looks its best. You want your skin to be healthy, supple, radiant and as unlined as possible. You want moisturized skin, not “sandpaper” or dried skin.

The best way to do that is to get plenty of water to drink, good nutrition and your fair share of a good night’s sleep. Then, choose a cleansing product that is gentle but thorough, and a moisturizer that contains jut the ingredients you need and none of the ingredients you don’t need or want. So we suggest Peptide 6® for it’s combination of powerful collagen renewing peptides plus hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, and squalane. And not a single paraben or phthalate or artificial fragrance! All of what you need, and none of what you don’t! Try Peptide 6® today.

What Age Are Anti-Aging Creams Most Effective?

Two questions that we hear a lot from women are:

* What age should you start using anti-aging wrinkle creams?

* I’m too old, would it do any good to try a wrinkle cream?

There’s an age when a young woman wants to look older. At 13 or 14 years of age she tries really hard to look 16 or 18 or 21. And some young teens really succeed! But those are the years when the skin has the most glow, the most collagen, the smallest pores.

That is also the age when anti-aging products do a lot of good! And by that I mean sunblock and moisturizer. Taking care of your skin from an early age means healthier skin later in life. For the most part, a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunblock are all a woman needs until she begins to notice her skin beginning to feel drier.

That might be early 30’s or later, but there is a point where there aren’t any wrinkles yet but collagen production is slowing and skin is not as smooth as it once was. From that moment on the most natural way of preventing aging is to renew, refresh, and support the natural processes your skin did so well in your twenties. Ingredients like peptides and hyaluronic acid are designed to boost and promote the very things your skin has always done. So utilizing them is just the natural thing to do.

Some women feel that they have wrinkles now, so what’s the use of using creams or serums to look younger? But there is no age at which prettier skin isn’t a benefit. No age at which softer, smoother, more supple skin isn’t more attractive. No external cream can completely reverse the advance of time, but with regular application, a peptide cream can erase fine lines, re-hydrate depleted cells, and promote collagen production. You’ll look younger and feel prettier! Try our Peptide 6® Wrinkle Cream with free shipping!

Starting New in 2015

The New Year is always the perfect time to start the renewal of our attitude, our life, our habits – well, everything. There are actually many milestones in our lives that give us that opportunity. Just a few examples would be:

  • Getting your first apartment on your own.
  • Getting married
  • Getting divorced.
  • Having your first child.
  • Annual New Year’s celebrations.
  • A move to another city or state.

But, really, any day can be the day you decide to change. Remember that saying, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” It’s just that easy to decide.

resolutionsFollowing through is harder. But here are some tricks to make it more likely to work. First, of course is identifying problem areas in your life. If there are no problems, you don’t need any solutions. Once you have identified problems, plan the solutions. Don’t just say, “I have dry skin; I’ll moisturize more often.” Spell it out. How often is more often? What time of the day? If you formerly moisturized before bed each night, are you now planning on doing it again first thing in the morning or after your shower? Plan the details.

Next, put it on your calendar to do it. And, if necessary, put the jar of moisturizer on the vanity where you’ll see it first thing – or leave yourself a note.

If you have a lot of resolutions take them in baby steps. Moisturize more, join a gym, eat more vegetables. For a list like that start with the moisturizer because it is easy, schedule a call to a few gyms to get pricing, and add stopping at the farmer’s market to pick up vegetables. If you break your resolutions into manageable pieces you’ll have the changes well in hand by the end of January!

You know you can do it, it’s just a matter of planning.
