Hyaluronic Acid: What Is It? And Is It Good For Me?

Healthy, youthful-looking skin is something everyone wants. The skin, our largest organ has a busy job to do: it protects our other organs, signals heat and cold by sending messages to our brain, and, among other things, prevents loss of moisture. Youthful skin retains its turgor, resilience, and pliability largely due to its high content of water.
Daily life and the normal process of aging cause loss of moisture. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the key molecule involved in skin moisture. This is due to its unique capacity to retain water. HA is present throughout the body and is mostly concentrated in the skin, and is found in the joints and organs.
The function of HA includes hydration, lubrication of joints, a space-filling capacity, and the framework through which cells migrate. HA acts as a lubricant and cushion in the joints and other tissues.
HA is a humectant-a substance that retains moisture and it is capable of binding 1,000 times its weight in water. It does this by pulling water from the environment to the skin. It can decrease the depth of wrinkles and enhance skin firmness. Hydration is best for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and helps tighten the skin’s texture. The amazing thing is that you will notice hydrated skin immediately.
Dual-weight HA is the best! Small and large molecules hydrated the surface of the skin and the lower levels of the epidermis. This provides maximum surface hydration. Topical HA is an excellent moisturizer and gives a dewey, moisturized feel to the skin. Its is safe to use every day and has not been shown to irritate sensitive skin.
