The Surprising Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a substance naturally produced by your body. There are large amounts of Hyaluronic Acid found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. In your body, it’s main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist.

Here are some surprising benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on your skin.

Hyaluronic Acid strengthens the skin’s natural barriers to help lock moisture in for an even more dramatic hydrating effect. Over time, this can help slow down the the deterioration of the lipid barrier and help protect and reinforce it.

Hyaluronic Acid can help with the appearance of tightness in the skin. As it fills the skin with moisture, hyaluronic acid tightens the overall complexion. It helps firm facial contours for a more youthful appearance.

Much in the same way it makes the appearance of the skin look tighter, hyaluronic acid also smoothes the texture of the skin. This results in a silky smooth finish you can see and feel.

Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visible fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn’t busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells.
