Matrixyl vs Hyaluronic Acid

Look Younger with Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid

The evidence is in: hydrated skin is healthy skin.

Do you want to look and feel as young as possible, with fewer wrinkles and fine lines crisscrossing your face? Then look for products that contain Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid.

These compounds are essential ingredients in many anti-aging skincare products. They help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to create the most radiant, natural results. So, what are these fantastic ingredients, and how do they work?

Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid

Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of two peptides Palmitoyl Tripeptide 1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 7. These two peptides work together to boost the skin’s collagen production, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin’s dermis is mainly made up of collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its plumpness, structure, and elasticity.

If you’ve ever wondered why youthful skin is so soft and supple, it’s because our bodies produce plenty of collagen when we're young. As we age, though, we stop producing as much of this youthful chemical. Further environmental insults from Ultraviolet radiation, pollution, and toxins break down and disorganize our precious collagen structure.

As a result, our cheeks and eyelids begin to sag. Our lips seem to deflate and become wrinkled.

Creases form between our eyebrows and around the corners of our eyes from squinting, smiling, and furrowing our brows. Enter Matrixyl 3000 and its dual peptides. These ingredients work in sync to mimic cross-linked collagen. This, in turn, stimulates the body to support healthy collagen, and the result is a more youthful appearance.

On its own, it is a potent anti-aging agent, but it is even more effective when combined with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in your skin and is very hydrophilic – which means that it attracts about 1500X its weight in water. It can penetrate deep into the skin, adding a healthy boost of hydration for all skin types.

It won’t cause breakouts since it is oil-free, and it can even be used to boost the strength of a moisturizer in the dry winter months by combining the two.

Locked-in moisture helps keep your skin from drying out and appearing saggy and dull. Together, Matrixyl 3000 and hyaluronic acid give you a plumper, more youthful complexion by filling in lines and wrinkles, as well as filling out your cheeks and brow.

Matrixyl 3000 Reviews

What do people who’ve used Matrixyl 3000 have to say about it?

There are countless positive reviews of Matrixyl 3000 online, pointing to the incredible effectiveness of this ingredient. One user of our Expression Line Deep Wrinkle Serum said,

“I am amazed at the look of my skin. It has changed the way my forehead looks. The lines do not appear to be as deep as they were before I started using it.”

Another happy customer used our Ageless Advanced Age-Defying Serum (which contains Matrixyl 3000) and reported back,

“This serum really and truly plumps the face. I think it is amazing!”

Real people using Matrixyl 3000 see actual results in improved skin tone and tightness because we believe it to be the best collagen compound available.

Pure Hyaluronic Acid

On that note, we also believe that pure Hyaluronic Acid yields the best hydrating and plumping results. Because this compound occurs naturally in your body, your body reacts best to it in its most pure form. In this form, Hyaluronic Acid is also less likely to cause any skin irritation. Authentic hyaluronic acid is not a skin irritant, but some impure forms can irritate sensitive skin.

If you are sensitive to fragrances, parabens, or any other additives that some cosmetics companies put in their formulas, you can rest assured that we use pure hyaluronic acid in our products. We don't add a bunch of preservatives and other potentially irritating chemicals. If you’re looking for an effective filler and moisturizer that won’t irritate sensitive skin, try our Skin Plumping Hydrator.

Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen

Hyaluronic acid can be found in many beauty products on the market today. An excellent benefit of Hyaluronic Acid is that it helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles away. It boosts the volume of the skin and providing plump and volume from a surge of moisture.

Products with HA tend to be in the form of a gel that hydrates deep down for younger-looking skin. Hyaluronic is imperative to the skin as it supports the production of collagen. It supplies collagen with the nutrients it needs to function appropriately, plus pliability and flexibility to bounce back.

This amazing, hydrating, anti-aging ingredient is an excellent addition to your skincare routine to bring back a more youthful, supple appearance while looking younger with Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid.
