Products that contain hyaluronic acid are known to effectively hydrate the outer layers of the skin. This is because it can hold 1000 times its weight in water, improving and dramatically changing the skin’s appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found naturally in all cells of the body. It is a very popular and effective ingredient found in many treatments.
Hyaluronic acid is a chemical that is naturally produced within your body, it is found in almost every cell in your body, and in large amounts in your skin, eyes and connective tissue. It carries out many functions, including keeping your eyes and joints lubricated, healing wounds and reducing inflammation. It works by holding onto water molecules and using them to keep your tissues well hydrated and lubricated. This is how it keeps your skin looking young. As you age, like many other substances in your body, the amount of hyaluronic acid that is made begins to decrease. In fact when you are in your late 40’s there is approximately half the amount compared to 20 years before. Taking hyaluronic acid can help keep your skin looking younger for longer. Supplements can be taken as topical creams, oral supplements, serums or injections, which are popular beauty products and dermal fillers.
