Super Ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid

By Vicky Lin

Hyaluronic Acid — at first glance, the name may sound daunting. I'd admit, I have wondered why somebody would put an acid on their face.

But in actuality, hyaluronic acid is an element naturally produced in our body, serving as a vital component of our skin by retaining water levels between skin tissues. Not only does it partake in retaining our youthful appearances but it also protects our skin from harmful elements. Quite magical, right?

Why don't we explore some more of it wondrous properties.

HYDRATION

Plumpness. Radiance. Suppleness. These are what our skin can achieve with hyaluronic acid. Retaining between two to six liters of water per gram, hyaluronic acid is like the fairy god mother for hydrating our skin. It binds to collagen and water on both sides and maximizes moisture retention levels between skin cells. A drop here, a drop there, our skin is suddenly dewy and glowing for a perfect zoom meeting.

ANTIOXIDANT

Our skin is constantly exposed to environmental aggressors like ultra-violet radiation and pollution, decreasing our skin's natural barriers and becoming more susceptible to free radicals. Though this results in dry and loose skin that appear unhealthy, hyaluronic acid saves the day by remedying any skin damages. Its antioxidant property shields the skin from aggressors while restoring and strengthening skin barriers, preventing further damage from free radicals. If you feel that your skin is feeling rough and itchy from sunbathing in your backyard for too long, it's time for you to check out hyaluronic acid products and experience the cell-restoring and skin-healing sensations.

RENEWAL

Anti-aging has been a phrase thrown around a lot in the beauty world. But there really is no consensus as to what it means — is it to stop aging? to prevent wrinkles? to reduce roughness?

Well, hyaluronic acid has anti-aging properties in very specific terms: rebuild the skin's microbiome through increasing water levels. Simply put, hyaluronic acid hydrates your skin to smooth out rough skin and give an appearance of younger-looking skin. Its postbiotic properties generate skin renewal that provides you with baby-smooth appearance and supple-to-touch skin.
