From retinol to facial steams, there’s so much skincare advice around that it’s hard to know exactly what you should – and shouldn’t – incorporate into your routine. Luckily, there’s one product that dermatologists, skin experts (including plastic surgeons) and beauty editors alike agree on COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK, which uses the megastar molecule hyaluronic acid to leave skin visibly plump and hydrated.
From protecting against signs of ageing to safeguarding against winter weather, here are the four reasons why COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK acid is the missing piece to your skincare routine…
1. It hydrates like nothing else
A smooth, corrective serum that’s scientifically formulated, COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK. Intensifier has a gel-like texture that provides instant hydration to the skin, harnessing the benefits of hyaluronic acid and increasing its levels in the skin by up to 30%*. Miss Jonquille Chantrey, cosmetic doctor, surgeon and founder of One Aesthetic Studio explains, ‘H.A. has a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. When formulated in skin care in a scientifically active manner it can increase surface hydration of the skin and even stimulate hydration.’
2. It has anti-ageing benefits
Since the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the skin starts to decline in our twenties, adding this magical molecule into our skincare routine can help to maintain and restore the glowing, supple quality of youthful skin. Miss Chantrey comments, ‘I recommend it in particular for patients who have a dry skin type or are seeing ageing signs such as skin roughness and fine lines. But importantly, it can preventatively benefit a broad spectrum of patients before they start to see these ageing signs.’
The SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier formula also contains ProXylane, a patented molecule that firms up and provides elasticity in the skin. It supports the skin’s biomechanical properties, nourishing both the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the layer of connective tissue beneath), which leads to skin-luminosity effects and the reduction in the appearance of fine lines. It also contains botanical extracts of liquorice root and purple rice to support the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels, helping to achieve plumper-looking skin.
3. It suits all skin types and ages
Whether you’re experiencing dry, ageing skin or are looking for a hydration boost, COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK can be implemented into any skincare routine regardless of age or skin type. It’s also backed by doctors as a professional skincare treatment suitable for use in between injectable treatments.
Miss Chantrey notes, ‘If you have truly dry skin and poor skin elasticity you may require it twice daily. However, if you have very few definitive signs of facial ageing and are young, you may find twice weekly is sufficient.’
4. Its formula is backed by science
The AU Cosmetics is no stranger to praise from doctors, dermatologists and beauty professionals for its scientifically-backed formulas, having conducted ground-breaking antioxidant formulation research. It consistently uses its decades of experience in skincare innovation to create award-winning, next-generation formulas.
When it comes to the formulation of COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK, Miss Chantrey explains, ‘Hyaluronic acid is a large molecule that does not easily penetrate the outer skin barrier. Therefore a product needs to be scientifically formulated in order to be efficacious. I recommend COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK to my patients, as it contains three different molecular weights that can hydrate at several levels.’
COLLAGEN Hyaluronic Acid and Gold Premium GEL to MILK is formulated to help retain moisture, providing essential protection against dryness all year round. Consider your winter skincare woes solved.
