Liberty Walk’s Latest Lamborghini Huracan Body Kit Is So OTT, It Hurts

Strength Carscoops

The Japanese tuner will displayl its Silhouette Works GT body kit at the SEMA show in November.
'If there’s a tuning company that knows what it takes to turn a a Lamborghini into a car that drops more jaws than anything else on the road, no matter how expensive it might be, it is Liberty Walk. The Japanese tuner has made a name for itself creating widebody kits for all kinds of exotics regardless of brand or price. One of their most famous widebody kits is for the Huracan; clearly eager to outdo itself, the tuner has released renderings of its heavily-updated kit for the Italian supercar. Also Read: Liberty Walk-Bodied Lamborghini Aventador Wants To Look Like A Racer Dubbed the Silhouette Works GT, it sports a distinctive front bumper and splitter, carbon fiber hood, and flared wheel arches with subtle air louvers. Cast your eyes along the sides and you will immediately notice the extended side skirts and bulging rear wheel arches. One aspect of this widebody kit which distinguishes it from most other Liberty Walk kits is that the flared arches don’t feature exposed rivets, making for a more seamless and stylish design. If you thought the front fascia and sides were eye-popping, just wait until you see the rear, where there’s a towering wing and a large shark fin stretching off from the roof and over the engine cover. Liberty Walk has also manufactured a custom rear diffuser and fitted a pair of enlarged tailpipes. The tuner hasn’t said how much its Silhouette Works GT kit will cost – only that it will make its public debut at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas in early November.'

Sodium Hyaluronate Vs. Hyaluronic Acid: What To Know (& Which To Use)

'Hyaluronic acid, beloved beauty ingredient, comes in many, many, many shapes and forms. First, theres the kind that naturally exists in your body. (Yup, you have your own hyaluronic acid supply pumping through your system and plumping your cells right this very second.) Then, there are synthesized hyaluronic acid gels, like Juvderm and Restylane, used for injectable fillers. Finally, there are the two versions most commonly found in skincare products hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate that tend to cause confusion in the beauty community. So which one is actually better for your skin? Cosmetic chemists and dermatologists say it's.. kind of a draw. That conclusion is disappointingly vague, to be sure. But the reasoning behind it how different forms are created, the pros and cons of each, which works best for certain skin types is pretty fascinating. Before you can understand the intricacies, though, you have to start with the basics. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a polysaccharide that can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water, Dr. Aanand Geria, a dermatologist with Geria Dermatology in New Jersey, tells The Zoe Report. HA is naturally present in our joints and eyes because these structures must be constantly moist and lubricated in order to function properly. It also plays a big part in skin health, keeping cells hydrated and plump . As we age, the levels of HA in our body diminish, and it can show on our skin by making it drier and more prone to wrinkling, Ron Robinson, a cosmetic chemist and the founder of BeautyStat Cosmetics , tells TZR. Which explains why the buzzy ingredient is on (and in) everyones lips. Although hyaluronic acid does naturally occur in the human body, its not necessarily considered a natural ingredient in skincare , since HA needs to go through chemical processing in order to be effective in topical application. HA is known to have a large molecular weight and therefore does not penetrate the skin, Robinson says. One way to minimize the HA molecule is via hydrolyzing AKA, breaking it down via a chemical reaction with water which results in the hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid commonly seen in serums and moisturizers ( La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum , Moon Juice Plumping Jelly Serum ). [This type of] HA works on skins surface to attract and bind significant amounts of water to help hydrate the skin, Robinson explains. It's especially useful in the winter months, when your skin is naturally drier on the surface, as long as you use an occlusive to lock it in. (More on that later.) The more common way to turn pure hyaluronic acid into a useful topical is to extract its sodium salt to get sodium hyaluronate. Sodium hyaluronate is a derivative of HA specifically, its a salt form of HA, Robinson clarifies. Sodium hyaluronate has a lower molecular weight than HA and hydrolyzed HA, so its more easily absorbed into pores. Sodium hyaluronate has the ability to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin, and also attracts and binds water, the cosmetic chemist says. This effect can plump the skin, thus reducing the look of wrinkles and making skin younger-looking. This form is less susceptible to oxidation, so it's more stable, Dr. Geria adds. That stability makes sodium hyaluronate attractive to product formulators. In fact, the dermatologist notes that almost all hyaluronic acid serums will actually contain sodium hyaluronate as the key active ingredient. The terms are used interchangeably, so while your faves SkinCeuticals HA Intensifier, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 may say hyaluronic acid on the front of the bottle, the back of the bottle lists sodium hyaluronate. To recap: hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid works at the surface-level to smooth and hydrate, and sodium hyaluronate does the same on a deeper level, which helps reduce signs of aging. Both forms have advantages and can be used together, depending on the desired effects, Robinson says. There are plenty of products that boast both for double the benefits, including Glossier Bubblewrap and Versed Skin Soak Rich Moisture Cream . The risks of hydrolyzed HA and sodium hyaluronate are pretty minimal, but theres evidence to suggest you can have too much of a good thing. It needs moisture to work, so when applied to skin in dry conditions where humidity is low, it will pull moisture from wherever it can; thats just the nature of the beast, The Cut reported . If theres no humidity to be obtained from the air, it draws moisture from the deeper layers of skin and brings it to the surface of the epidermis, whence it evaporates, leaving skin drier than it was. The solution here is twofold: Use only one HA-containing product at a time, and seal it in with a moisturizer or oil. As with any ingredient, irritant or allergic reactions are always possible, Dr. Geria says. Some beauty enthusiasts find they have sensitivities to sodium hyaluronate, but their skin thrives on hydrolyzed HA (its a big topic of conversation in Reddits Skincare Addiction community ). One study theorizes this is because the low molecular size of sodium hyaluronate can cause inflammation . If you notice any inflammatory symptoms blemishes, redness, irritation you may want to hold off on the sodium hyaluronate serums and moisturizers to see if that helps.

Shop Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid keeps the skin's surface moisturized and smooth, while vitamin B5 stimulates cells' repair response.
