Hyaluronic Acid and Why It's Everywhere In Skincare

It's everywhere. Like everywhere, but is it just another marketing ingredient?

We believe hyaluronic acid can do so much for your skin. It's effective and safe for your skin and according to Healthline,

Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist. Hyaluronic acid has a variety of uses.

Since it's made in your body and your body actually uses this ingredient, hyaluronic acid doesn't hurt you in any way shape or form. Hyaluronic in terms of ingredients is considered as a humectant. Like glycerin, it traps moisture onto your skin and retains it there. Hyaluronic acid has hydro swelling properties, which means that it likes to hold water. Go figure why hyaluronic acid is pretty effective.

Here are some benefits of hyaluronic acid.

Full Hydration

As we just covered as hyaluronic acid is water retaining, this ingredient can make your skin cells feel supple and full.

In the case of hydration, this can provide some benefit in skincare. For fine lines and wrinkles, hyaluronic acid fills the crevasse providing youthful looking skin. For dry skin, Hyaluronic acid can restore skin cells with hydration and reduce flakiness and peeling.

Speed Wound Healing

Research has shown that hyaluronic acid applied to the wound can increase cell regeneration rate.

Research also shows that hyaluronic acid can control levels of inflammation. This may be a why individuals that use hyaluronic acid experience less pain in the wound area.
