Hada Labo Tokyo Skin Hydration Heroes – Being of active body and mind, 15 minutes of quiet time and relaxation is a bonus in my book. There are few things that can achieve this mean feat, one being wet nails, where you have no option but to sit still! the other being a face mask. With this in mind, our friends at Hada Labo Tokyo sent over a couple of skin-hydrating heroes to try, one being the Hada Labo Anti-Aging Facial Sheet Mask
Whether we are facing the summer heat or winter winds, prevention remains key, and it is always important to keep your skin hydrated.
Hada Labo Tokyo has a unique collection of best-in-class and much-loved skincare musts from anti-ageing moisturisers that also act as wrinkle reducers to body lotions, serums, and moisturising milk. And all with water-lock formulas to ensure deep, hydration that lasts.
The range contains multiple types of Hyaluronic Acid formula which penetrates the multiple layers of the skin with healthy hydration that quenches thirsty, dry skin at multiple levels. The additional anti-ageing bioactive collagen, retinol and tetra-peptides help fight fine lines and rejuvenate the skin.
So, let’s look closer at hyaluronic acid and what it does:
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and helps to hydrate and plump skin. As we age, our body begins to produce less of it, and as a result, our skin can become more prone to developing wrinkles and dryness.
What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a clear gel that’s made naturally within the body. Its job is to lock in water to keep our skin, connective tissues and eyes hydrated. With increasing age, the body starts to produce less hyaluronic acid and what it does produce is lower quality. This results in drier, more dehydrated skin.
Japan — the home of Hada Labo Tokyo — leads the way in the science of hyaluronic acid, where size really does matter. Here Japanese scientists pioneered the techniques used to create nano-size particles of hyaluronic acid which can penetrate deep into the dermal level of the skin.
The four types of hyaluronic acid all work on different levels of the skin:
Large hyaluronic acid: this is the largest size molecule which acts on the skin’s surface to hold in moisture, giving long-lasting hydration.
Standard hyaluronic acid: this medium-sized molecule holds 1000 times its weight in water and is retained in the top layer of the skin.
Super hyaluronic acid: this clever HA retains two times more water than standard hyaluronic acid, so it’s kind of a big deal.
Nano hyaluronic acid: this little nano molecule penetrates deeper and plumps the skin from within.
Hada Labo’s Anti-Aging Facial Masks double the levels of skin hydration, leading to a tighter, brighter, and smoother complexion and a more youthful appearance. It deeply moisturises the skin due to the multi-molecular HA included. Collagen and retinol also help firm and rejuvenate the skin. The best part is that it feels like a real facial, which gives you that radiant skin treatment looks and feel, without having to leave the house.
Hada Labo’s Anti-Aging Repair Night Cream is packed with more than 20 carefully blended active ingredients, including four types of hyaluronic acid; retinol and an intensely regenerating complex of tetrapeptide-5 and collagen to reduce wrinkles and restore radiance and hydration. With its ‘Lock-in Moist’ formula, the skin retains more moisture. Providing intensely regenerating multi-layer hydration for dry and dehydrated skin while you sleep.
Hada Labo Tokyo products have been formulated specifically for dry and dehydrated skin (at any age!), so somebody who shares those skincare issues or wants to address anti-ageing concerns is an ideal candidate.
