Hyaluronic Acid has become a beauty buzz word the last few years but is it really worth all the hype? The answer is YES! Everyone can benefit from this ultra-hydrating, mega moisturizing ingredient.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid (aka Hyaluran, Hyaluronate Sodium, Hylan, Sodium Hyaluronate) is a molecule that is naturally present in your skin as well as connective tissue, joints and eyes. It has the superhero ability to hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. For skincare use, its recreated in a lab and formulated into serums, hydrating mists and moisturizers.
Why should I use it?
Daily external factor such as the sun and pollution, in addition to the normal process of aging, causes loss of moisture. Replenishing topically and staying hydrated will slow this process and assist in repairing the moisture loss. Plus, Hyaluronic Acid plumps your skin, making it look softer and more youthful!
This study, published in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, found "The hyaluronic acid clearly demonstrated a significant benefit in decreasing the depth of wrinkles (up to 40%), and skin hydration (up to 96%) and skin firmness and elasticity were significantly enhanced (up to 55%) at the end of eight weeks."
