Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Before we start sharing the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, we might need to explain what it is first. Hyaluronic Acid, or HA as it may be referred to, sounds a bit scary or man-made, but Hyaluronic Acid is actually a naturally occurring substance found throughout the human body. It’s the body’s secret weapon for making you look radiant.
In other words, Hyaluronic Acid is nature’s sponge, a naturally occurring substance in the human body designed and made to regulate the moisture in our skin cells. One gram of HA holds approximately six liters of water. The more HA you have in your body, the more your skin feels and appears glowing, healthy, and hydrated. And when the skin is hydrated, lines and wrinkles diminish, making you feel and look younger.
But as we age, our skin cells lose their ability to bind and retain water, and the natural high levels of HA in the skin diminish. And that’s when dryness occurs, and wrinkling begins. But it’s not just aging that can cause the skin to dry and reduce the levels of Hyaluronic Acid, we are living with so many factors that can contribute to the lack of moisture in our skin.
Environmental exposure, air pollution, allergies, medications, air conditioning, and even airplane travel can cause your skin to dehydrate. Even though it’s a natural occurring substance, our bodies may need a little boost in production. And that’s why you can find it in our skin care products. We use the purest, highest quality of Hyaluronic Acid in our facial creams and serums, where you need it the most.
If you skin looks like this, chances are your Hyaluronic Acid is low… or you might be dry mud. Hard to say.
In addition to moisturizing the skin, Hyaluronic Acid has many other benefits – it’s been known to help with anti-aging, epidermal growth, stem cell growth, block pollution and it even has antioxidant properties that help protect the skin. Skin Care products are not the only place you can find Hyaluronic Acid. It is also used in eye surgeries, plastic surgeries and even taken as a supplement by those with joint disorders.
Our skin care products that give you moisture like our Sensitive Facial Cream, include Hyaluronic Acid as an ingredient.
Using skin care products that have Hyaluronic Acid is completely safe. It’s a positive acid, and it hydrates rather than exfoliate or break down something, like acids are typically known to do. Hyaluronic Acid is something your skin needs and is super gentle to use.
Though Hyaluronic Acid is found in a lot of anti-aging skin care or treatments, it is not something that only people who have wrinkles and crows’ feet need. It is something we could all use a little bit more of. Making it a part of your daily skin care routine is a good idea for anyone, regardless of their skin type or age. The easiest way to do this is just make sure it’s an ingredient in the products you already use. We have already done that for you if you are using our facial creams and serums.
If you need a little more moisture in your life and are not already using skin care products that have Hyaluronic Acid, try one of ours. And see the difference. Your skin will thank you.
