The Magic of Hyaluronic Acid
What is hyaluronic acid?
Acid has a scary connotation, but this one’s far from liquids that burn or cause sensitivity in the skin. In fact, hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in your body and is found in large amounts in your connective tissues, eyes, and skin. It is a humectant that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in moisture and helps keep tissues moist and well lubricated.
How does it benefit the skin?
Your skin contains almost half the hyaluronic acid present in your body. The molecules bind to water, helping to retain moisture. However, the aging process and exposure to environmental stressors like UV rays, pollution, etc., brings down its levels, causing your skin to turn dull and dry. Supplementing hyaluronic acid helps the skin take in more molecules and consequently stay hydrated while looking and feeling more supple. Hydrated skin tends to have fewer wrinkles, which explains how hyaluronic acid benefits the skin, especially that ridden with signs of damage.
Hyaluronic acid can be taken as an oral supplement or applied externally through skincare creams and serums. When used topically, the acid helps treat redness and dermatitis of the skin. Additionally, the ingredient is used by dermatologists as a filler in smoothing and firming injections to improve the appearance of dry, aging skin in adults.
