Admittedly, everyone has to practice the pronunciation well at the beginning, but then you don't want to do without it anymore: We explain to you why hyaluronic acid is a mandatory ingredient for healthy skin - and an indispensable partner in the fight against wrinkles in men!
Hyaluron: sexy wrinkle killer and moisturizer
It is inherent in the body, extremely well tolerated and extremely effective: Nothing works in men's skin without hyaluronic acid. The substance is a polysaccharide and occurs naturally in the connective tissue. There it has a hydrating effect by binding moisture in the skin. With excellent consequences: Your fabric is well padded, smoothens and you look fresh and fit overall. Hyaluronic acid is therefore also an anti-aging factor, because well-hydrated skin with good elasticity means fewer wrinkles.
It is also practical: Hyaluron acts against free radicals and thus supports your collagen structure (more on this below). In addition, the substance is not only good for the skin, but also occurs in other parts of your body; for example as a lubricant and insulation for eyes and joints.
Hyaluronic acid and collagen: joint power performance
The two are a little like Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill. They always appear together, don't get along without each other and punch in properly. Hyaluron and collagen work hand in hand against dry skin and wrinkles. However, if hyaluron is missing, this damages the collagen balance. And when the collagen structure is in danger, the skin's elasticity is bad.
We hold firm: hyaluronic acid and collagen are essential for healthy, young and firm skin. And: we have good news and bad news.
The good news: Our body produces hyaluronic acid and collagen itself
Our connective tissue cells create the long chains of sugar molecules (polysaccharide) by themselves. We also help the production of collagen, the structural protein, with a balanced, protein-rich diet. From this point of view, everything is fine: We continue to pay close attention to what is on the table and are happy about smooth skin. But:
The bad news: From the age of 25, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases
Just as our cells renew themselves more slowly over time, so does the body's own production of hyaluronic acid. The unsightly side effects: the collagen structure becomes more unstable, the elasticity decreases, we get the first wrinkles.
But please do not panic unnecessarily: you can add hyaluronic acid to your body! We want to refrain from injections at this point, because the punctures are invasive for your skin and so we only get from the rain to the eaves. Two options remain: pills and creams.
We don't think it's great: Hyaluron over capsules
It is good that hyaluronic acid can be obtained artificially from wheat: it helps patients suffering from rheumatism or arthritis. After all, hyaluronic acid is also important for joints, tendons and ligaments.
But there is a catch for the skin: the oral intake distributes the hyaluronic acid over the whole body, so it does not work directly on the skin! In addition, hyaluronic acid capsules have a long start-up time. It can easily take weeks and months for you to see an effect on the skin. So the effect can be delayed.
By the way, we do not need to speak of collagen capsules: our body breaks down the structural protein in the stomach - at the latest in the small intestine - into its individual parts. Effect: none.
We think it's better: direct hyaluronic effect with face creams for men
You get a quicker result if you apply hyaluronic acid topically - i.e. with a cream on the skin. The fabric acts directly on the upper layers of the skin and binds moisture, cushions, tightens and supports the collagen structure. Hyaluron effectively prevents wrinkles there.
But what about collagen? Some ointments nowadays integrate pure collagen as an ingredient without it being of much use: The protein molecules are too large to penetrate the skin and build up the collagen structure.
It is better to stimulate your own collagen synthesis. On the one hand, creams do this with the body's own moisture binders - including hyaluron! - and substances that fight free radicals; above all: vitamins!
With the right skin care to firm skin
It is no coincidence that we designed the Hydra Defense Cream to contain hyaluronic acid and plenty of vitamins. After all, you should be able to take care of and strengthen your men's skin every day. Specifically: Hyaluron hydrates your skin and, together with vitamins and antioxidants, ensures a strong collagen structure. The best thing to do is try it yourself: You can get the Hydra Defense Cream here in the shop .
