Hyaluronic Acid

by Maxime Vossen

Hyaluronic acid is the go-to ingredient for plumper, smoother, softer skin.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in skin, well-known for its perfect capacity to attract and hold onto 1000 times its weight in moisture. The ingredient should be a cornerstone of any anti-aging routine. Research shows that hyaluronic acid is one of the best skin care ingredients for any type of skin care, whether it's masks, serums, toners or creams. Hyaluronic acid plays well with multiple other skin care ingredients and can be used with peels, retinols, vitamins, and other skin care acids.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan found throughout the body’s connective tissue. Glycosaminoglycans are simply long unbranched carbohydrates, or sugars, called polysaccharides.
 
So why is hyaluronic acid so magical? For starters, HA can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water. In other words, it functions as a humectant and holds water molecules onto the surface of your skin to keep it nice and hydrated. The extra moisture does help plump the skin, which makes those lines look smoother.

Hyaluronic Acid's Benefits

Whether you have acne-prone skin, dry skin, aged skin, dull skin, the ingredient is here for you to improve your glow. Hyaluronic acid is able to enhance moisture content like no other ingredient. It also takes care of the skin’s outer surface layers, so they look and feel softer, smoother and radiantly hydrated. Hyaluronic acid is something our body already produces, so it's safe for all skin types. The multi-tasking ingredient is especially functional when in need of anti-aging! However it also protects our skin against the negative influences of unprotected sun exposure and environmental assault.
