With all the hype on the internet and television, you’ve probably heard about hyaluronic acid. You might be skeptical, but I’m here to tell you that this skincare ingredient lives up to that hype. Hyaluronic acid benefits your skin in many different ways, but these are my top three favorite benefits.
It Keeps Your Skin from Drying Out
One of the main reasons hyaluronic acid has gained so much attention recently is because it is so good at locking moisture in. Without enough moisture, skin can look flaky or even cracked, especially on problem areas like the hands, feet, and elbows.
To get a little bit scientific, hyaluronic acid is what is known as a humectant—it traps moisture and keeps it in your skin where it belongs. The hyaluronic acid molecule is so adept at holding moisture that it can trap up to 1000 times its weight in water. Talk about lasting silky-smoothness! To make things even better, the molecule is too large for your skin to absorb, so it just sits on top holding the water your skin needs.
It Has Anti-Aging Properties
Aging is one of the biggest challenges facing the skincare industry. As you get older, your skin loses its ability to hold moisture as effectively as it used to. One of the ways that we know that hyaluronic acid benefits skin is because babies naturally have lots of hyaluronic acid in their skin. We don’t say “smooth as a baby’s bottom” for nothing!
Applying products containing hyaluronic acid to problem areas can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Because of the moisture that this acid keeps locked in on the skin, your skin will actually plump up ever so slightly to fill in these gaps. It’s like going from sun-dried tomato to fresh-off-the-vine juiciness!
It Protects Your Skin to Keep It Healthy
Your skin produces a natural barrier that protects it from the environment and microbes. When this barrier goes away—as it does when your skin gets too dry—your skin is more susceptible to damage from the sun, wind, and infection.
Hyaluronic acid benefits your skin by repairing and maintaining this barrier. When your skin has the defenses it needs to repel free radicals, bacteria, and other harmful things, it can focus its energy on looking fly.
