Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body that helps you retain water and stay hydrated. As you age, the hyaluronic acid levels decrease, making your skin appear dry, dull, and lined. Applying hyaluronic acid topically as a skincare product can dramatically improve your skin’s health. Here are some of the benefits you can expect when using hyaluronic acid as part of your skincare routine.
1. Extreme Moisture Retention
Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, helping to plump and firm your skin. It also penetrates your skin layers to bind with the water molecules to your skin cells for long-lasting moisturization.
Hyaluronic acid is also a humectant, meaning that it draws in moisture from the surrounding environment to ensure your skin always looks fresh and youthful.
2. Provides Barrier Protection
Your skin is exposed to numerous pollutants every day, from UV rays to air-borne toxins to tobacco smoke, contributing to fine lines, wrinkles, and premature aging. While your skin has a natural lipid layer for protection, this layer deteriorates as we age, leaving you vulnerable to skin damage.
Hyaluronic acid creates an additional lipid layer and fortifies your skin’s natural barrier protection to minimize the signs of aging.
3. Minimizes Breakouts
When your skin dries out, it compensates by producing more sebum, leading to breakouts and acne. Using hyaluronic acid increases the moisture levels in your skin and limits oil production for cleaner, clearer skin.
Hyaluronic acid has also been associated with improved wound healing and has antibacterial properties, making it suitable for use on acne-prone skin.
4. Reduces Wrinkles
Age and sun damage deteriorate collagen and elastin levels in your skin, leading to sagging and wrinkles.
There is evidence suggesting that hyaluronic acid encourages cell renewal and soft tissue growth, helping boost collagen and elastin levels in your skin, making your skin appear firmer and smoother.
