Hydrate and firm with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that occurs naturally in our skin where it holds water and helps keep skin plump and hydrated. The naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid within our skin and joints holds a thousand times its weight in water.
Just like skin elastin and collagen, the amount of hyaluronic acid our bodies can produce decreases as we age. Reduced hyaluronic acid is a symptom of growing older, and exacerbates signs of ageing by making skin appear less hydrated, full and firm.
How hyaluronic acid fits into in your beauty regime
Products with hyaluronic acid can act as a humectant - a humidifying agent - by drawing moisture toward the surface layers of your skin and holding it there. When applied as an ingredient in face cream or serum, hyaluronic acid can make skin appear younger and dewier and improve skin elasticity.
For hyaluronic acid to do its work, you want it to be able to penetrate deeply into the skin. Look for beauty products that list hyaluronic acid as “micronized” or paired with active ingredients that help that product reach the deeper layers of your skin.
