Hyaluronic acid is an essential molecule naturally produced by the human body and most abundant in our skin.
Our skin needs water, a lack of water dries it up, which over time will lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
Staying hydrated as well as topically hydrating your skin is vital in caring for its health and look. Hyaluronic acid is one of the best ingredients you should look for in your skincare. It has an unrivaled ability to improve moisture content so that your skin will look and feel softer, smoother and more radiant.
Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that hyaluronic acid:
-> helps improve skin hydration
-> helps retain skin elasticity
-> aids the production of collagen
The key to smooth, flawless and well-hydrated skin, hyaluronic acid has many beneficial properties:
-> It is a potent antioxidant protecting skin from damage by free radicals.
-> Its anti-inflammatory properties help with wound healing.
-> It plays a key role in lubricating and cushioning the body and is abundant in the eyes, joints, and heart valves.
-> It has a wide range of applications with its excellent biological properties, such as biodegradability, biocompatibility, and non-toxicity.
Hyaluronic acid is classed as a humectant; in other words, a type of molecule that attracts water into the stratum corneum and increases the skin’s ability to hold water. The unique capacity to bind and retain the water molecules involved in skin moisture makes hyaluronic acid essential in treating dry skin, preventing skin dehydration and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Youthful skin is hydrated because it contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid. However, as we age, the amount of epidermal hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases. The most dramatic change observed in aging skin is the disappearance of hyaluronic acid from the epidermis. The epidermis loses this vital molecule responsible for binding and retaining water, which results in the loss of skin moisture, elasticity, and apparent dehydration. This is when incorporating high quality hyaluronic acid based product into the skincare routine will make a difference to your skin, even more so if your skin is mature.
On the whole, hyaluronic acid is vital for healthy and well-hydrated skin.
It is the ultimate drink for your skin and healthy, dewy look and feel.
