3 Benefits To Using Skincare Products With Hyaluronic Acid
Updated: Jan 6, 2019
Looking to get hydration back into your ever-so thirsty skin? We know you do, especially if you live in the dry climate called Alberta!
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps keep our skin plump and hydrated, and it can be found in moisturizers, cleansers, serums, creams, and even foods!
Below are 3 benefits to why you should start using skincare products that contain hyaluronic acid. And to be clear, it isn't an acid in the same sense as glycolic or salicyclic acids that are used to exfoliate. This substance is used to hydrate.
1. Smooth, silky skin
You deserve smooth skin--plain and simple. But did you know that your body already contains hyaluronic acid naturally? It can be found in joints, lips, connective tissues, eyeballs, and your skin! It is what keeps our skin plump, hydrated, and fresh. Incorporating more hyaluronic acid in your daily life, especially as you age, can help promote healthier, plump and supple skin.
2. Prevent the visible signs of aging
After the age of 40, the levels hyaluronic acid begins to decrease in our bodies. We start to see visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and dryness, and need to put even more effort into our daily skincare routine. Maybe your friend Becky who is the same age as you, 45, looks younger because she's using more products that contain this molecule. Perhaps it's time to jump on the hyaluronic acid bandwagon!
3. Replenish moisture
Hyaluronic acid helps bind moisture to the skin. It works like a sponge to help draw moisture from the environment to provide deep hydration to your skin cells. It also has the remarkable ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water (this is the equivalent to about six liters). This ability is what makes it such a great hydrator for thirsty skin.
