First things first,
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
It is a naturally occurring molecule found in the human body. It acts as a cushioning and lubricating agent for our joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes.
It is a moisture binder that attaches itself to water in the cells making them plump. It draws moisture from the air, keeping your skin moist, by holding almost 1000x its weight in water.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
- Retains moisture: Hyaluronic acid helps replenish and hold cell moisture, leading to hydrated, plump skin.
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles: Since dehydrated skin is one of the main causes of wrinkles, hyaluronic acid replenishes lost moisture and helps reduce the appearance of any fine lines.
- Fast absorbing: Unlike some skincare products, hyaluronic acid quickly absorbs into the skin, meaning you lose less product.
- Non-irritating: For the most part, hyaluronic acid is non-irritating and safe for use with all skin types.
There are no known side effects to using Hyaluronic Acid in your beauty routine.
