This is a very powerful ingredient that becomes more and more popular in skincare world. Many call it a fountain of youth.
First I’ve heard of it as of the perfect filler for lips and face in general. It easily removes the wrinkles you have under your eyes, forehead and anywhere on a face. It also makes face look moist and gives it a teenage turgidity.
Let’s see what Hyaluronic Acid is!
An average adult body contains 15mg of hyaluronan and one-third of it gets degraded every day. This acid works as a lubricant and helps the skin to retain collagen, hold the moisture in the skin, eyes, and joints. It helps the skin cells to communicate smoother and helps skin itself to stay more elastic. As the years pass by, our face loses the significant amount of HA and doesn’t do well in retaining the necessary moisture and as the result, our skin gets dry, thin and sagged. Because of that, the face starts losing firmness. Hyaluronic Acid is best at keeping moisture in between the skin cells (0.03 ounce can hold 5-6 liters of water). HA also works as a great antioxidant to protect the skin from the harsh environment (such as gasses in the air, chemicals, and even UV (sun damage) effect). HA is great for sensitive skin and can even help with redness on the blemish-prone skin.
Hyaluronic Acid plays the vital role in keeping the youth appearance, making skin silky, smooth and radiant.
There are a many ways people use HA. The most popular are:
1) SKIN CARE
-You can find HA in the serums for a face to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging, like Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Radha Beauty.
-In the anti-aging day and night creams, or combination of it (as a lazy option), like Super C-22 Moisturizer with Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid by Body Merry.
-Eye drops. Our eyes are very sensitive and getting dry even faster than our skin does, especially in a cold weather. The tears that occasionally come out of your eyes are attempts of your body to moisturize your dry tired eyes. You can help your eyes to stay moist and healthy by using lubricant eye drops, like Hylo-Forte Intensive Lubricating Eye Drops with Hyaluronic Acid.
-HA is used as an injection to relief the pain in joints. There are also supplements to help your joints, like Source Naturals Hyaluronic Joint Complex.
-Lotions with this ingredient help with scaled skin, like Hyalogic Episilk Hand & Body Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil.
Cosmetologists do the HA injections all over the face to remove all signs of aging, including wrinkles and sunburn damage, so the face looks young, moist and fresh.
And remember, always check the side effects before using the product. Hyaluronic acid in skin care is usually made from the bacteria in a laboratory or bird protein. Therefore, in the case of allergies or special health conditions, it may not work out good for you.
Other than that, HA is my new obsession and I am very satisfied with the results.
