Skincare 101: Your Everything Guide to Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is probably the best known and most loved of the skincare ingredients and the best dermatologists in the world recommend adding this top ingredient to your beauty routine.
Everyone talks about it and many people use it - but have you ever wondered what it truly does to our skin? Let's find out why it’s so great and the many reasons why you should always have some in your routine.
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin and it helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated,
The great thing about Hyaluronic Acid is its ability to retain water molecules in the skin and keep it soft and supple. In fact, hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found physiologically in the skin in variable quantities and with the aim of hydrating and protecting it.
Over time, however, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases. This can cause dehydration, loss of elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles on the face and neck. Regular use of skincare products rich in hyaluronic acid moisturize deeply and help to counteract skin aging by acting on wrinkles and expression lines.
And moreover Hyaluronic Acid is great for all skin types, is non-irritating and does not trigger acne, rosacea, or allergic skin reactions.
