When you talk about Hyaluronic Acid to someone not familiar with this ingredient the acid part conjures up all different types of thoughts and none that relate to beautiful skin!
BUT, it’s not an ingredient to be afraid of at all, in fact, Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our bodies. It is a carbohydrate that binds to water giving it a stiff viscous quality similar to jelly. This gel is one of the most heavily researched substances who’s function in the body amongst other things is to help lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles.
Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be used in skincare products as an excellent moisturiser. Interestingly, there is roughly 50% of Hyaluronic Acid found in our skin and is something we require in order to maintain our skin’s layers and structure. Hyaluronic Acid works with collagen to produce some pretty wonderful anti-aging skin benefits.
- Improved skin tone
- Keeps our complexions youthful = wrinkle-free
I am thinking right now you might just be wanting to know how you can get your hands on a serum that contains this ingredient and fast!
It just so happens a Hyaluronic Acid serum in MiSMo terms translates to Rejuvenating Gel. Moreover, MiSMo uses only pharmaceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid (which is also plant-derived) and lots of it too. In fact, up to twenty times more than other products, which is why Rejuvenating Gel is so effective. In as little as four days of using this serum, you will see visible results which include plumping and improvement to skin texture.
In addition to Hyaluronic Acid, MiSMo has also added another powerful anti-aging ingredient to the formulation, a peptide known as Matrixyl Synthe 6. This also helps to keep skin wrinkle free while also encouraging the production of collagen and elastin.
Here’s what Nicole had to say about Rejuvenating Gel:-
“Wow! I was given a bottle of Mismo’s Rejuvenating Gel for Xmas and have only been using it for two weeks – but what a difference. At 40 the lines around my eyes are beginning to show. This Gel is wonderful and in only a short time I am starting to see lines reduce. Highly recommend giving these products a go…thank you Mismo!!”

Interesting Hyaluronic Acid Fact – Hyaluronic Acid is highly concentrated inside the eyeball. The fluid inside the eye called the vitreous humor is composed almost completely of hyaluronic acid. The gel acts as a shock absorber for the eye and also serves to transport nutrients into the eye. It is said that after the 5th decade of life, our eyes stop producing the much needed Hyaluronic Acid resulting in various eye problems such as poor vision, dry eyes and floaters.
I am not sure there are too many people out there who enjoy ageing? Yes it is part of life and yes we would all like to age gracefully, but what if some of us want to have a little more control over just how quickly we age? Do you really like those crow’s feet around your eyes? Well there are a couple of very quick and easy steps you can put into place to help do this.
Stick To A Daily Skincare Routine
This doesn’t have to take up too much time at all. Simply cleanse, followed by a high quality treatment serum that includes ingredients like Vitamin C and/or Hyaluronic Acid and moisturise of a morning and the same of an evening.
Include an exfoliation and a mask once a week if you can and that is a fantastic way to fortify your skin health.
What Can You Expect From these Steps
By using quality serums and cosmeceutical grade skincare from your early 30’s you can stall or prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles. For older ladies these lines and wrinkles can be softened and sometimes eliminated.
Always Take Your Makeup Off Before Bed
“Sleeping in your makeup can result in unnecessary exposure to the free radicals in the environment, which the makeup holds on to,” explains one Doctor. “Free radicals cause the breakdown of healthy collagen, which results in fine lines on the skin”.
A great one to remember, a microfibre cloth is an easy way to remove your makeup, if you’re looking for a quick option.
This is a really terrific quote – “Healthy hydrated cells are the key to ageless skin and a healthy body.” Being aware of how much water you consume can reduce skin issues like dehydration (which can lead to more wrinkles and fine lines developing). Further to this, using products that also offer hydration to your skin will ensure ageless skin.
If you’re not already following any of these steps and you’re keen to slow down the hands of time then perhaps today is the time to start? Every mature person loves to hear “Gee you look great for your age”. Join the Mismo ladies who hear this regularly.
Looking after your skin can be a complex affair. To give your skin the best possible outcome, treatment goes beyond the usual cleanse, tone and moisturise regime of the past.
There is a huge range of skin care products on the market today and we will try to help explain the best way to choose your star items.
Serums are the latest additions to the beauty world and offer all sorts of tempting improvements from smoothing wrinkles to reducing pigmentation marks. Can this really happen you ask? Yes they can go a long way towards these goals.
An important point to remember is that serums are not moisturisers. Serums usually contain concentrated, active ingredients designed to perform specific tasks. Small molecules are selected to ensure deeper penetration and absorption.
A good serum is an excellent bonus to add to your skin care routine especially if you have a particular area of concern. Serums are generally used after cleansing and need to be sealed by a moisturiser. They are another layer of skin care well worth the effort and a little extra expense.
The many benefits of serums are they can deposit nutrients, vitamins and minerals deeper in the skin so problems such as dull, lined, uneven skin tone and dryness in the complexion can be addressed. More intense treatments can be given very easily.
Ingredients or features to look for in serums include Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A, C and E and Peptides.
Hyaluronic Acid is top of the list and is known as the King of Hydrators. Skin is very commonly dehydrated especially as we start to age. As collagen and elastin deposits reduce, lines form. This is where Hyaluronic Acid comes to the fore, plumping skin, adding moisture lost from environmental damage and aging. HA is the missing link of elastin and collagen. Now you can provide that ingredient topically.
Vitamin C and Vitamin E are antioxidants critical to use for protection from free radicals during the day. Vitamin C can help reduce pigmentation and prevent further development. Vitamin C also helps strengthen capillaries and even skin tone.
Vitamin C is best used in an oil form because it is very stable and non irritating. Many soluble forms of Vitamin C oxidise quickly and lose their efficacy. They can also be irritating on some skins.
Retinol and Vitamin A stimulate natural cell renewal and thickening of the epidermis.
When purchasing a Vitamin C serum the best formulations contain Vitamins A, C and E in an oil form. Your skin then receives maximum protection and sun damage can be improved. Uneven colour tone and light pigmentation will also improve.
Peptides are a new generation in anti aging actives. They are synthesised from Amino Acids and are readily accepted by the skin. Several peptides have been developed to carry out different jobs but Matrixyll™ Synthe 6®, a signal peptide seems to have the best results at this time. These tiny peptides signal the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, hence smoother skin.
Hyaluronic Acid and Matrixyl™ Synthe 6® work well together and give excellent results quickly. It is not just the combination of ingredients but percentages and molecule size that is vital in formulating serums.
For best results look for all the ingredients listed above and a more youthful appearance can be expected.
