MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL…
Me: “What the *@#% happened to my skin?
When we reach that age where passing by the mirror we see our mom, we start to get a little obsessed with skincare.
The majority of us have all sorts of insecurities that get exacerbated with age, and I am your typical insecure woman. I was not a cute child, then puberty hit and, just like the rest of my cohort, I was wondering if I would ever look normal. Then in my twenties and early thirties I hit a spot where I felt good in my skin. Heads were turning, and I was constantly having to turn men down! It seemed that it was just a brief moment of high self esteem, and then I suddenly turned forty! Ah, disaster! Fine lines appeared, my eyesight changed overnight, skin started sagging, bags surfaced, and where did all that facial hair come from?! Mirror mirror on the wall, what the *@#% happened?”
Mirror: “Nobody wants to look their age, hence all the skincare on the market, plastic surgeons and botox. People can age gracefully, if they take care of their body inside and out. It’s a combination of many factors. Let me tell you about a pretty cool one today.
Do you know why everyone talks about Hyaluronic Acid? Why has it become that latest obsession in the skincare industry?
Hyaluronic Acid is pretty amazing!
- It is a natural compound of your skin. It is not a chemical, or anything that can harm you or the environment. The Hyaluronic Acid used in cosmetics can be either animal or plant derived. (The one used by ViLAU is plant derived, and of course, from organic plants)
- Hyaluronic Acid is the superpower element in skin hydration, because each molecule of hyaluronic acid can grab and hold on to about twenty molecules of water. It’s like a little ant that can carry up to 1,000 times its weight, or the invisible spiderweb that holds a thousand times its own weight in water. With age and exposure to the elements, skin has difficulty retaining water, hence wrinkles start appearing. Our skin loses its elasticity, which is due to the lack of hydration of the dermis (the middle layer of skin). Hyaluronic acid provides easily accessible water to our skin cells, and by doing this, it rehydrates our skin. This give us not only a more youthful appearance, but actually rejuvenates our skin on a deeper level.
- Not all Hyaluronic acid is created equal though. In order for the magical substance to penetrate deeply into your skin and replenish the dermis, the size of the actual Hyaluronic molecule needs to be very small. This is why ViLAU uses nano size Hyaluronic acid, that penetrates deeply and replenishes your skin in depth.
This is what Hyaluronic acid does in a nutshell. When you combine that with the other benefit-packed ingredients in the ViLAU products, and top it off with a healthy lifestyle – it’s the fountain of youth!
