Is Hyaluronic a Healthy Acid?

Hi Lovelies

Want to know more about what is a good match for your skin? Here’s the low-down on this healthy acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant.  Meaning, it draws in water and holds on to it.  HA can hold 1000x it’s weight in water.  So when hyaluronic acid is abundant in the skin, the skin looks smooth, plump and glowing.  Pretty much what we all want. As we age, especially in our late 30’s to early 40’s, the amount of hyaluronic acid our skin has, greatly decreases.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural glycosaminoglycan (polysaccharides that are an important component of connective tissue) and can be derived from multiple resources, natural foods, supplements and HA powders. HA is distributed widely throughout connective, neural, and epithelial tissue. It is of the chief components of the extra-cellular matrix (the tissue that provides structural support to cells). In short, hyaluronic acid supports many important areas of the body, with notable benefit to joints and skin. Hyaluronic acid can actually hold up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. So it’s a a fantastic match for the skin with regards to super hydration

Here are just some of the fabulous benefits.

  1. Diminishes Wrinkles– Applying hyaluronic acid on your face plumps up the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Firms and Tones– When your skin is supple and hydrated, it plumps up to appear firmer, less saggy, and more toned.
  3. Hyaluronic acid also plays a key role in wound healing. It’s naturally present in the skin, but its concentrations increase when there is damage in need of repair. Hyaluronic acid helps wounds heal faster by regulating inflammatory levels and signalling the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged area.
  4. Stimulates Skin Cell Regeneration – While it won’t speed up the cell renewal process, hyaluronic acid does help promote skin cell regeneration by offering extra hydration and barrier protection to the skin. This naturally leads to healthier cells and a more vibrant complexion.
  5. Pigmentation – Hyaluronic acid also helps reduce and prevent age spots and pigmentation issues. But, it cannot do it on its own. When looking to treat dark spots, a vitamin c serum and vitamin c booster product should be paired with hyaluronic acid.
