What does hyaluronic acid do?
Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a carbohydrate molecule that’s naturally found within the body and skin. This hydrating humectant also has a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules and can hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water within the cells of skin. In fact, the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid can be found within fluids in the eye and joints, as it has an unparalleled ability to keep the body lubricated and moist. This is what makes it such an effective way of hydrating the skin.
Hyaluronic acid benefits
There are many benefits to using hyaluronic acid whether it’s in the form of a serum, mask or moisturiser. And, when applied topically, it’s an effective way of maintaining moisture levels and helping the skin to appear smoother and plump. It can also help to improve the appearance of ageing signs including fine lines and deep wrinkles. Additionally, due to its very gentle nature, hyaluronic acid is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and blemish-prone.
