Hyaluronic Acid has become a huge buzzword in the skincare world. In the past few years, the ingredient has been listed on many creams, serums, and cleansers.
This molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, making it a great vehicle to Hydrate your skin. It exhibits remarkable skin regenerating and collagen “stimulating” effects when used topically and/or injected into the skin. It also shows promising efficacy in skin tightness and elasticity and reducing wrinkles and lines that will appear less deep. Also, it improves all-over texture and calms unwanted redness and dermatitis.
Hyaluronic Acid is a clear, gooey substance that occurs naturally in our body playing an important part in the health of our connecting tissues, skin’s elasticity, and wound healing. However, 50% of the Hyaluronic Acid in our body is found in the skin. It is a humectant which means it draws water from its surroundings, acts as a sponge, and holds a larger amount in the skin.
Younger skin is naturally pliable and bouncy because of its high water content. As we age, however, our skin produces less Hyaluronic Acid. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, tobacco smoke, and pollution decrease the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin.
Because Hyaluronic Acid is already in our body it makes it ideal as the ingredient for fillers, such as Juvaderm and Restalyn. Its gel-like texture can provide volume and lift.
All skin types will benefit from incorporating Hyaluronic Acid into their skincare routine, but those with dry skin will especially see a difference because of how good of a humectant it is. It also works well for oily skin because it is lightweight and hydrates without making skin oilier.
