Why is Hyaluronic Acid used in Skin Care?
Hyaluronic Acid in skin decreases as we age starting at the age of 18 when our skin is naturally very supple and glowing. It is used in many skincare products focusing on diminishing the signs of aging for a couple of reasons. For one, it is very moisturizing. HA literally holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and where there is water, there is moisture. What is special about HA is that it holds the water near the skin surface layers where you need moisture keeping your skin from drying out. Think of HA as a delivery system that transfers water to the layers of skin adding moisture. Does this sound like something you would want in a lotion, serum or cream for your face? You bet!!!!
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid, also known as HA, is a natural compound found in skin that has many important functions, including binding moisture, plumping up the skin tissue, and aiding in tissue repair. Hyaluronic acid acts as a glue that supports collagen and elastin-essential for any Anti Aging wrinkle skin care products!
Why do we care?
Because we want less wrinkles, not more. HA power to bind moisture in the skin layers helps keep your skin looking smooth, and supple with less visible wrinkles-tighter looking skin. We want our skin to look younger, right?
