HyaluronicAcid (HA) plays a vital role in our bodies with several benefits for the body and for your skin. Hyaluronic Acid also known as hyaluronan is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan that is distributed throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. It forms in the plasma membrane. What that means for us layman is that it cushions joints and helps to keep muscles limber because it helps your cells retain moisture.
Basically, HA acts as a magnet for moisture. But its most important job is what HA does for the skin. Our own skin actually produces HA naturally. Unfortunately, as we age we produce less HA. Thankfully, there are several exceptional products and supplements to help replenish HA for our skin and joints. Because HA can attract and hold very large amounts of moisture, it is an extremely important factor in maintaining hydration and moisture in your skin. I am a big fan of using products that contain Hyaluronic Acid as I consider it one of my skin’s best friends. 5 top reasons for using HA products.
- HA is one of Cosmetic Chemist favorite ingredients as it has a proven track record of increasing hydration in the skin because of its ability to naturally pull moisture and trap it in the skin keeping your skin hydrated.
- HA products such as creams, serums, and facial sprays are especially beneficial in plumping the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- HA supplements have numerous benefits for the skin and your joints in your body.
- HA works splendidly on any skin type. People with problematic skin benefit greatly by using HA products as it regulates moisture and in turn when skin is properly hydrated the sebaceous glands stop over-producing oil. Hence, less break-outs.
- Because HA is natural it delivers safe and gentle hydration to where your skin needs it most.
Do not be afraid to use HA on your face, under your eyes, and even on your lips as it can keep lips hydrated and has a natural plumping effect. Think grape and raisin. Plump grapes contain a lot of moisture and the skin on a plump grape is tight and smooth. When dehydrated it turns into a rain, wrinkled with rough texture. That pretty much explains the aging process! Ugh!!!!!
