Hyaluronic Acid, besides having a difficult to pronounce name (that has most people tongue-tied), is a substance that is naturally produced by your body. One of the most amazing things about Hyaluronic Acid is that it can hold a thousand times it’s own weight in water. It’s key function is to attract and retain moisture.
The amount of naturally-occurring Hyaluronic Acid in your body decrease as you get older, in the same way that collagen and elastin decrease.
Over half of all the Hyaluronic Acid in your body is present in your skin. It prevents all the moisture in your skin from just evaporating.
Hyaluronic Acid’s unique capacity to retain water and hold onto moisture means that it hydrates skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking and feeling smoother.
While it is not a miracle substance, regular use may help your skin’s ability to maintain a youthful and supple appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid has other benefits. It is believed that it speeds up the recovery of damaged skin, the concentration levels increase in the area of a wound. It is also found in the space between your bones, helping to keep your joints well lubricated.
Before you go and purchase some hyaluronic Acid go check the ingredients in your moisturisers. This is a widely used ingredient and chances are that it is in a skincare product that you already use.
