The Great Anti-Aging Benefits of Japanese Skin Care Products

There’s no doubt that Japanese skin care products have gotten a lot of attention recently (with reason). Thanks to the people in Japan, the rest of the people in the world have learned how to keep their skin more youthful and healthy much longer.

I think that the single-most important thing that Japanese have contributed to the skin care world is the important of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Ever since the ABC News Report where Connie Chung visited the small village of Yuzurihara, the popularity of hyaluronic acid in skin care has increased.

In this report, it was found that many Japanese people there that were in their 80s and 90s had amazingly smooth and youthful skin. And they discovered that this way mainly because they lived a healthy lifestyle, exercised, and ate ‘sticky vegetables’ that contained lots of hyaluronic acid.

Today, even Japanese skin care products contain ingredients that have to do with hyaluronic acid. But unlike most anti-aging products on the market that actually CONTAIN this substance, Japanese skin care products contain ingredients that PRESERVE the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin.

And of course, the Japanese skin care products like this work A WHOLE LOT BETTER….

Every single cell in your skin contains hyaluronic acid. It plays a very important role in healing and tissue repair, providing elasticity in the skin, and cell proliferation. But perhaps more importantly, this substance can hold up to 1,000 times it’s weight in water!

Along with filling in space between tissues, hyaluronic acid also helps to prevent the evaporation of water from the skin and make the skin more plump and smooth. If you have wrinkles and fine lines that have already formed, then hyaluronic acid may be just the thing you need to smooth of these unwanted aging signs.

What Japanese skin care products contain is an ingredient called Phytessence Wakame, which stops the activity of hyaluronidase, an enzyme in your body that constantly breaks down hyaluronic acid. By doing this and by stabilizing free radicals in your skin (which increase the activity of hyaluronidase)m Phytessence Wakame helps to preserve the natural amounts of hyaluronic acid in the skin, allowing it to stay more plump, smooth, and firm.
