When it comes to skin products, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the available choices. From vitamin C and E serum to toners and moisturizers, what ingredients are best for your skin type and desired results? One of the most effective, versatile options in our skin care toolkit is hyaluronic acid serum.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) occurs naturally in the body’s connective tissue and provides extra structural cell support, which makes it an important component of skin, tissue and joint health. Smoke, pollution, UV radiation and other environmental exposures reduce the skin’s HA levels, which also decrease with age. When pure hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin, it plumps and hydrates the cells for a smooth, youthful appearance.
What Are the Advantages of This Product?
Hyaluronic acid doesn’t just hydrate the skin; it helps the cells retain moisture for a long-lasting effect. This increases the elasticity of skin, which tends to decrease as we age. This ingredient also has the benefits of:
- Protecting skin from UVB rays, which cause sunspots and other signs of aging
- Naturally adjusting moisture to the environmental humidity level
- Penetrating into the skin’s deepest layers even with topical application
- Increasing collagen production for softer, smoother skin
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Locking in moisture over time
- Reducing inflammation and calming redness
- Promoting faster wound healing
Many of these benefits have been proven by clinical research. For example, a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology in 2014 found that using HA products results in firmer skin and less noticeable wrinkles. The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology reported in 2014 that HA use increased skin hydration by 96 percent and firmness by 55 percent. Some skin clinics inject hyaluronic acid directly back into the areas of the face which have naturally been depleted as a result of aging. Topping up your natural supply of hyaluronic acid is minimally invasive and totally rejuvenates your skin.
