What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate molecule that is naturally produced by our body. Hyaluronan is of fundamental importance to our skin: as we’ll see, it provides our skin with essential hydration and protects it from the damage caused by external factors and physical stress. 

With the passage of time, our skin begins to change and the amount of hyaluronic acid that is produced by our skin decreases, which causes the skin to lose its firmness. Exposure to external agents, such as the sun, wind, cold air, smog, temperature changes, only causes the skin’s ageing process to accelerate.

HYALURONIC ACID BENEFITS FOR SKIN

There’s no shortage of ways in which hyaluronic acid helps to rejuvenate and revivify your skin. Here are the 4 incredible benefits of hyaluronic acid for skin:

The 4 Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for your Skin

  1. Improves skin hydration: Hyaluronic acid infuses the skin cells with water, improving your skin’s ability to absorb moisture and nutrients. This is due to hyaluronic acid’s astonishing ability to hold up to one thousand times its molecular weight in water within the cells of the skin.
  2. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles: It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by smoothing and plumping up your skin cells, making the contours of your face appear more youthful and radiant
  3. Stimulates skin cell regeneration: Hyaluronic acid promotes the regeneration of your skin cells by repairing and protecting the skin barrier and providing hydration. This leads to healthier cells and vibrant skin.
  4. Enhances skin firmness and elasticity: It has been found in studies that applying a hyaluronic acid cream can improve skin firmness and elasticity by more than 50% over the course of two months 

Given all of these wonderful properties, it’s hardly surprising that hyaluronic acid is one of the most commonly-used ingredients in cosmetic products. Anti-ageing face creams and masks that contain hyaluronic acid tend to be most effective at providing hydrated, soft, elastic and relaxed-looking skin.
