What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Don’t let the word “acid” freak you out, it defiantly doesn’t sound like something you want to put on your face, but in fact, our bodies naturally produce Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acids main job is to keep the skin plump and hydrated. Over time (aging) and environmental aggressors (UV rays, pollution…ect) our skin slows down the production of this lubricant. Thankfully, this useful hydrator is now being added to skin care products so you can apply it topically and still get the benefits.
What will Hyaluronic Acid do for my Skin?
First, it’s not like some acids that are used to exfoliate; this is one powerful moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated and plump. It gives our skin a significant boost in the hydration department; it literally holds on to moisture, keeping your skin hydrated longer. I read it is capable of holding 1,000 times its own weight in water. We all should know by now, “moisturized skin helps fight premature aging and reduces the appearance of those darn’ol fine lines and wrinkles.”
It also has been suggested that Hyaluronic Acid can shield our skin against free radicals that we have no control over. It strengthens the moisture barrier, the outermost layer of the skin and is the first line of defense against environmental aggressors. I think with all this fantastic news; it’s defiantly worthy of being added to your skin routine!
