the power of hyaluronic acid
You must have heard of the skin care ingredient Hyaluronic Acid by now, which is all the rage amongst skin care enthusiasts. But if the word “acid” in this ingredient is making you wary, we’re here to tell you not to worry.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is essentially a clear substance or molecule that is naturally created by our bodies. Mostly found in the skin, eyes and connective tissue, its main job is to hydrate. Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and is a skin care powerhouse.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Adding Hyaluronic Acid to your skin care regime has multiple benefits. This ingredient is responsible for giving you well-hydrated, soft, supple skin that is far slower in showing signs of ageing. Here are some of the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid:
- Promotes supple skin: By hydrating the skin, Hyaluronic Acid helps promote nourished, supple skin that is soft, smooth and even. It helps trap the skin’s natural moisture and significantly improves skin health.
- Soothes inflammation and irritated skin: By locking in moisture and assisting in the generation of skin tissue regeneration, Hyaluronic Acid also helps heal wounds and soothe inflamed or irritated skin.
- Reduces signs of skin ageing: Hyaluronic Acid can significantly reduce the signs of ageing by increasing the skin’s elasticity. As the skin becomes more elastic, it smoothes and evens out, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thus giving you firmer skin.
- Protects the skin from external aggressors: Hyaluronic Acid fortifies our skin’s natural lipid barriers that protect us from environmental assault, including pollution, sun damage, dust, etc. It essentially helps our skin do its main job, which is to protect our body and organs.
