Hyaluronic acid has become quite popular in skincare, but just what is it and how does it work? Here, we will define hyaluronic acid, what it can do for your skin and if it is a good fit for your needs.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring molecule found in our bodies, most notably in our skin, eyes and joints. Most of the HA in our bodies lives in our skin. It gives our skin the flexibility it needs to stay pliable, but as we age, we lose HA, which takes away the skin’s ability to hold onto the moisture it needs to stay smooth and hydrated.
The Importance of Hyaluronic Acid
In addition to aiding our skin in retaining moisture, it actually draws moisture into our cells, much like a sponge. This is especially important in protecting us from damaging UV rays and the toxic effects of pollution. HA forms a layer of protection, keeping these irritants out of our systems. As we age, less HA in our skin gives these pollutants an entry point, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
HA can also tighten saggy skin by replenishing moisture to the skin. This will help mask the loss of your skin’s elastin, giving you a younger appearance. HA can make your skin appear smoother, reduce fine lines and can even stimulate new cell growth.
How to Use Hyaluronic Acid
HA comes in many different forms. Serums and creams containing HA can be used as a topical solution. HA can be injected into joints to aid in cushioning, providing relief for arthritis sufferers. HA can also be injected into the skin to improve and enhance the appearance of your skin.
