Quench Your Dry Summer Skin’s Thirst

Dry Desert

With an average 350 days of sun annually, living in the Palm Springs area means it’s imperative that we protect our skin daily from the sun’s harmful rays. Even small amounts of sun exposure lead to premature aging of the skin, which results in fine (and not so fine) lines and wrinkles.

“Premature aging of the skin is the result of repeated and extended exposure to UV radiation,” reports the National Institutes of Health. “Approximately 80% of facial skin aging is attributed to UV exposure.”

If daily sun exposure has your face feeling like a dry tumbleweed, especially during the summer months, you’re going to want to read on to learn about hyaluronic [hahy-uh-loo-ron-ik] acid.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a key molecule involved in skin moisture. It occurs naturally in the skin and is also found in the eyes, connective tissues, and joints. Approximately 50% of the total HA is found in the skin. HA has a unique ability to draw water to the skin’s surface and retain water in the skin. HA is a powerful hydrator that improves the skin’s elasticity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

SkinMedica HA5

As we age, we produce less HA and, therefore, lose our skin’s moisture. Dermatologist-developed skincare brand SkinMedica reports that “between the ages of 40-50, your skin has lost 50% of the HA it had at age 20.” This results in drier and flakier skin, loss of elasticity, volume, and radiance, and visible fine lines and wrinkles.

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator provides immediate results, replenishes moisture, and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Whereas a moisturizer simply prevents skin dryness, SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, by comparison, supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish Hyaluronic Acid for overall skin health. The #5 in HA5 represents the five types of Hyaluronic Acid included in the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator. These ingredients provide immediate and long-lasting hydration (up to eight hours) and a sustained release of HA. Additionally, a blend of potent antioxidants and peptides allow the skin to retain hydration.

HA5 is non-comedogenic, oil-free, and fragrance-free. It is appropriate for all ages and skin types.
