Why is Hyaluronic Acid all the rage in skincare?
Because of its unique ability to retain the moisture that our skin adores.
Although the word “acid” might leave some new skincare shoppers a bit timid when shopping for the next best serum or moisturizer, rest assured, our bodies are already familiar with this ingredient.
In fact, our bodies produce Hyaluronic Acid naturally to help us retain moisture in our skin. And *fun fact*: Hyaluronic Acid is also found in our eyes, joints, and connective tissue.
There’s bad news to this though. We produce less and less hyaluronic acid as we age and as a result, our skin becomes drier and less elastic - causing us to develop deep-set wrinkles.
BUT WAIT, DON'T GO! THERE’S GOOD NEWS:
This. is. why. Hyaluronic Acid works wonderfully as an anti-aging component in face creams and serums, as it can hold over 1,000 times its weight in water. So cool, right?
A little recap:
