Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water and keeps the skin hydated and plump. HA holds 1000 its weight in water to retain moisture in the skin and keeps our skin glowing and youthful.
As we age, we lose collagen and HA naturally, so the skin can become more prone to dehydration. Harsh winters can play a role in breaking the skin barrier allowing water to escape, which is why having products with HA can help fill the skin back with moisture and firm, plump, and de-puff the skin.
When it comes to getting dewy, hydrated skin, few ingredients deliver the way that hyaluronic acid does. While the fact that “acid” makes up 50 percent of the name, don’t be fooled into thinking the ingredient is not for everyone; in fact, the substance is naturally produced by our bodies and holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. However, your skin’s level of hyaluronic acid decreases with age, so if you’re looking to maintain your moisture barrier and ramp up hydration levels, you may want to consider incorporating HA-laced products into your daily skin-care routine.”[Hyaluronic acid] is great at holding water and giving skin resilience and firmness,” New York City-based dermatologist Doris Day says “This not only helps the skin look beautiful, but also helps it function at its best. We can inject hyaluronic acid into the deeper layers of the skin to help restore lost volume, but used in creams and serums it can also do wonders for rejuvenation and hydration.” As we transition into the colder months, our skin will likely crave extra moisture to counteract drier environments.
