Hyaluronic acid boosts skin resilience and hydration, providing you with a silky-smooth skin texture.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body and is a polymer of disaccharides (carbohydrates). About half of the Hyaluronic acid found in the human body is in the skin that has a youthful glow and appears plump and hydrated. Due to the effect of aging, the abundance of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases.
Hyaluronic acid has an amazing ability in retaining moisture. This ability is part of what makes hyaluronic acid a popular ingredient in the formulas of topical skincare products. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, firm up skin, improve texture, combat dryness and keep the skin moisturized, prevents tightness, and boost elasticity.
As hyaluronic acid enters the skin, it quickly binds water to skin cells, thus providing ample rejuvenating hydration to all of the outer layers of skin. This makes it a beneficial ingredient for soothing dry skin.
Hyaluronic acid helps enhance the skin’s natural lipid barrier and enables the skin to defend against environmental damage. Defense from environmental stressors means that skin remains resilient and thus allows for increased skin radiance and bounce.
As part of the aging process, skin can start to sag as the elastin breaks down. Although hyaluronic acid does not increase elastin levels, it does increase skin hydration which allows the skin to appear tighter. It also provides firmness to the skin contours, which increases the youthful appearance of the skin.
Intense hydration from hyaluronic acid not only allows the skin to appear tighter but also provides a silky-smooth texture.
