We’ve heard about the benefits of Retinol for our skin, but what do you know about Hyaluronic Acid? Hyaluronic Acid can be found in many products throughout the cosmetic industry and is gaining a great deal of popularity due to its immense benefits for the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring within the body, and the body contains on average about 15 grams. The amount of Hyaluronic Acid we produce decreases as we age and so increasing our body’s absorption of Hyaluronic Acid provides us with anti-ageing benefits.
The primary benefit of hyaluronic acid is its ability to retain moisture, so it is often incorporated within moisturising agents. With the ability to hold a substantial amount of water within the cells of the skin, it’s the body’s most powerful biological substance and is of equal importance to collagen, keeping the skin plump and hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid works in harmony with collagen and actually stimulates its production. In fact, some say that the substance exceeds the benefits of collagen as it’s able to penetrate the skins upper layers. Collagen is unable to do this as the molecules are too big.
Hyaluronic Acid also possesses the ability to act as a protective agent due to its antibacterial properties. The naturally occurring acid has the ability to remove waste from the cells.
Provides Protection From The Sun
Exposure to harmful UV rays is the number one accelerator of ageing. Hyaluronic Acid protects the skin from the sun from the harmful oxidative process.
