Could Ingestible Hyaluronic Acid Fix Your Always-Dry Skin?

Skin drier than the Sahara Desert? This one’s for you

Did you know that dry and dehydrated skin are different things? Dehydrated skin is a condition that is often occasional, brought on by seasonal changes, environment and harsh topicals. Dry skin, on the other hand, is a skin type that is often chronic (cheers, genetics!).

Whether your skin is dry or dehydrated, we’ve found a new, innovative and ingestible product that can offer some relief: Vida Glow Hyaluronic Complex.

The latest addition to Vida Glow’s stable of supplements, Hyaluronic Complex is a specialised ingestible treatment for dry and dehydrated skin. Divided into single-dose ampoules, Hyaluronic Complex offers a 100 mg dose of low-weight hyaluronic acid, along with eight other skin-enhancing actives, including gotu kola, coenzyme Q10, niacin, biotin, vitamin C, zinc, acai extract and lycopene. Together, this potent mix of ingredients work in synergy to help boost skin water content, and soothe and soften skin.

Hyaluronic Acid 101

Chances are, you’ve come across hyaluronic acid before in relation to skincare.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally occurring in the skin; it’s a powerful humectant that draws in water and holds it there, making your complexion look youthful and plump.

Skincare brands have been adding hyaluronic acid to serums and creams for years to help boost our natural (and often declining) hyaluronic acid stores. It’s a popular ingredient because it works! Applied topically, hyaluronic acid-infused products instantly plump fine lines.

The catch? While it is great, topical hyaluronic acid can only offer hydration to the topmost layer of the skin.

So… What’s The Deal With Ingestible Hyaluronic Acid?                                 

Here’s where things start to get interesting. Hyaluronic acid in skincare isn’t new; however, we’re only just learning about the benefits of ingestible hyaluronic acid supplements.

Studies have shown that taking a hyaluronic acid supplement can significantly increase skin’s moisture content, improve elasticity and improve the appearance of wrinkles due to dry or dehydrated skin. Compared to hyaluronic acid in skincare, ingestible hyaluronic acid has a far more systemic effect; it’s transferred by the blood and lymphatic system, meaning it has a much greater impact on the body.

Your Hyaluronic Acid Routine

The best way to tackle a dry or dehydrated complexion? From the inside, out.

Vida Glow recommends taking one to two ampoules of Hyaluronic Complex for at least six weeks see the full spectrum of benefits. The formula has a delicious acai berry flavour (that isn’t too sweet) which means that taking the supplement isn’t a chore.

To get the best results for your skin, also add a collagen supplement to your routine, like Vida Glow Marine Collagen. Consuming marine collagen helps to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, helping to boost your skin’s inner glow.

Together, Hyaluronic Acid Complex and Marine Collagen work together synergistically to form the ultimate ingestible skincare routine.
