I’m sure it doesn’t sound too enticing, especially to put on your face. Well, let me fill you in on a little secret – it holds the key to healthy, hydrated skin. Our own skin cells actually produce HA naturally to help maintain moisture levels. But thanks to genetics and environmental factors, those moisture levels decrease causing dullness, uneven texture and aged skin.
One of the many beauties of Hylauronic Acid is that it’s suitable for all skin types, even sensitive and acne prone skin. Unlike other acids that exfoliate and strip the skin, HA delivers gentle yet powerful hydration to the skin. Research shows that HA also has antioxidant properties which protects against free radicals like pollution!
As we age, our skin cell turnover becomes sluggish. This is when fine lines, wrinkles and rough texture becomes more noticeable. If you want to maintain a youthful glow incorporating Hylauronic Acid in your skincare routine is a wonderful idea! My personal favorite is the HA5 by Skin Medica!
