SKIN 101: HYALURONIC ACID - The ingredient you're still seeing everywhere
Hyaluronic acid has been one of the focus ingredients in the beauty scene for years and since then it has become indispensable.
But what exactly is hyaluronic acid and why is it so positive for our skin?
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?Hyaluron occurs naturally in our body and is an important component of various types of connective tissue. It is a water molecule that can bind 1000 times its weight in moisture and serves as a kind of moisture storage or filling material in the body. The largest proportion (about 50%) of hyaluronic acid found in the body is found in the skin. There it has a cushioning effect, supports collagen and elastin fibres and can even intercept free radicals. As it occurs naturally in the body, there are virtually no allergies or side effects to this active ingredient.
WHAT MAKES HYALURONIC ACID SO POWERFUL?
When used in skin care products like creams and serums, hyaluronic acid brings moisture to the surface of your skin. Because of its ability to draw and hold water, it can be used as a moisturizer in your skin care regime. It will make the skin appear more dewy and younger because it improves skin elasticity.
CAN I PAIR HYALURONIC ACID WITH EVERY OTHER INGREDIENT?
Hyaluronic Acid works well with most other ingredients and can be paired with peels, retinols, vitamins, and other acids.
