Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule that is naturally produced by the body. It is responsible for maintaining a plump and dewy complexion. As we age it naturally decreases in our skin which makes us susceptible to wrinkles. Adding hyaluronic acid to our skincare routine at an early age will help maintain our skin’s youthful look.
There are many benefits of HA that make it the holy grail in skincare. One of the most beneficial properties of HA is that it acts as a humectant, which means it holds the moisture in to keep your skin hydrated and draws moisture to the skin. Hydrated skin helps prevent aging, dryness and other skin ailments which makes HA a powerhouse for skincare results. It is known to increase skin elasticity, treat eczema and facial redness while also tackling wrinkles and aging by increasing the skin's plumpness. It is also known to speed up the healing process which is great for post exfoliation or resurfacing treatments like microdermabrasion or derma rolling.
With a multitude of products being marketed with hyaluronic acid it is important to make sure your skincare products contain the correct formulas for maximum effectiveness. Look for HA products that contain hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium acetylated hyaluronate or sodium hyaluronate.
