Hyaluronic Acid (HA) has skyrocketed to Superstar Status in the skincare universe. It has made its way into every type of product including Toners, Moisturizers, Serums, and even dietary supplements. It is compatible with pretty much every skin type including sensitive. HA is packed with benefits for Acne, Aging, and Hydration.
How HA helps keep our skin healthy:
It is a sugar molecule that is found naturally in our bodies. It benefits our body by lubricating the joints, promoting tissue repair and Hydrating the skin. When your skin is hydrated it is more likely to look plump, smooth and soft to the touch. Since we become drier as we age, exacerbating signs of aging, hydration is Crucial for a Youthful complexion. With the addition of free radicals and UV damage, a skin care regiment that supports Hydration is Essential. As a humectant, HA doesn’t just deliver hydration to the skin, it actually helps retain it. It is known to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. While locking in moisture HA also works to strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier, keeping your skin looking dewy and fresh all day.
The consistency is Gel-like, watery and lightweight, because as a humectant it is noted for its ability to penetrate the skin, delivering hydration while adding a bouncy, unmistakable plumpness to the skin. HA also helps another component in healthy, beautiful skin which is Collagen. By creating a hydrating, Nourishing environment, Collagen can function more effectively. When you have good Collagen support your skin is more likely to keep its elasticity and firmness.
HA benefits Acne suffers:
While Acne-prone skin is stripped of its natural oils, it is designed to overcompensate by producing more sebum. Typically, this results in an excessive amount of oil, clogging pores and creating more breakouts. Thanks to its light-weight consistency HA can promote moisture balance in the skin, protecting it from future inflammation and acne.
The importance of moisturizing is Essential to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Moisture levels are a marker of healthy-looking Mature skin.
Another benefit of HA is helping to heal wounds faster and reducing scarring.
