LONDON - April 7, 2021 - PRLog -- What does Hyaluronic Acid do for the skin?

Hyaluronic acid naturally is present in our body. Approximately half of the HA in our body is our skin where it binds to water to help retain moisture. HA is the main component of what gives your skin structure. It plays an important role in the wound healing process. As we age the amount of HA  in our skin structure decreases. The natural aging process and exposure to things like UV exposure, tobacco smoke and pollution can decrease its amounts in the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid as an ingredient in skincare products

Probably you've heard the term transepidermal water loss, or TEWL for short? TEAM is a term that describes how much water has evaporated from the skin. Hyaluronic Acid keeps our skin hydrated by prevent water from evaporating from the surface of our skin so it means HA prevents TEWL.

How to use hyaluronic acid?

The use of Hyaluronic Acid depends on the kind of product you want to use. The most common forms of HA are moisturizers and serums. Skin Experts recommend using it twice a day, always after cleansing. If you use serum infused with Hyaluronic Acid is important to apply a serum on still-damp skin.

Which skin type suits hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most gentle ingredients when it comes to skincare. HA can be used by all skin type, even the most redness-prone, sensitive skin and problematic skin.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
  • Hydrating power: Hyaluronic acid helps replenish and hold cell moisture, leading to hydrated, plump skin.
  • Anti-ageing ingredient: Since dehydrated skin is one of the main causes of wrinkles, hyaluronic acid replenishes lost moisture and helps reduce the appearance of any fine lines.
  • Perfect for all skin types –  Hyaluronic acid is non-irritating and safe for use with all skin types.
  • Fast absorbing: Unlike some skincare products, hyaluronic acid quickly absorbs into the skin, meaning you lose less product.

Side effects of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient in face care products characterized by little to non side effects. It is crucial to apply HY on a dump skin. If you're applying hyaluronic acid to a very dry face, it can actually end up drawing moisture from the deeper levels of your skin, which in turn will cause more harm than good and leave your complexion feeling tight and uncomfortable.
