In the world of skincare, trendy ingredients come and go, and many of them should never have shown up in the first place! Hyaluronic acid is NOT one of those ingredients. Quite the contrary, it’s one of the most extraordinarily beneficial ingredients. Its calming, hydrating, and antioxidant properties are great for all skin types, even for rosacea-prone and eczema-prone skin.
Simply put, hyaluronic acid has powerful anti-aging properties and is also one of the premier hydrating ingredients for skin, even for oily, sensitive, or breakout-prone skin.
How Does Hyaluronic Acid Benefit Skin?
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a fancy name for a vital natural substance that’s a youth-supporting part of skin. As the chief glycosaminoglycan in skin, hyaluronic acid works to keep every aspect of skin stable, safeguarded, and constantly renewed. It also has the stunning capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture.
This science-based magic lies in hyaluronic acid’s ability to replenish moisture, a lot of moisture! One gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water.
But what’s even more impressive is that hyaluronic acid can do this for skin without tipping the scales and giving skin too much water. Surprisingly, too much water is a problem for skin because it causes key substances holding skin’s surface intact to break down.
Hyaluronic acid’s moisture-binding characteristic is exceptionally important when it comes to skin aging. One of the qualities of youthful skin is its ability to hold water and retain a balanced amount of moisture. As we age, our skin loses the ability to maintain this vital, plumping moisture as well as it once did. The result is visible loss of firmness, pliability, and diminished appearance of plumpness and suppleness.
Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture content beyond comparison with anything else, and at the same time revitalize skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and, especially, radiantly hydrated! That’s how it instantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid goes beyond ...
Our skin suffers from unprotected sun exposure, harsh skincare ingredients, and environmental assault they all weaken the surface of skin. Hyaluronic acid’s skin-replenishing properties go a long way toward mitigating those issues, especially when used as part of a complete anti-aging routine that also includes other proven ingredients.
In our search, we also discovered another fascinating aspect of hyaluronic acid it even surprised us! It turns out that hyaluronic acid also provides an antioxidant defense against environmental assault. Now that’s what we call a multitasking anti-aging ingredient!
As you can see, hyaluronic acid is phenomenally helpful for all skin types. If you have oily or combination skin, hyaluronic acid in a pure fluid solution is ideal. These fluid formulas have an exceptionally lightweight texture that feels weightless on skin, even though you’re getting concentrated moisture-restoring benefits.
Hyaluronic acid is also incredibly gentle, for even the most sensitive, redness-prone skin. In fact, its positive influence on skin’s surface is due in part to its natural calming benefit, which means it can help sensitive skin as well as blemish-prone skin.
Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate
In addition to hyaluronic acid, you may have seen the similarly named sodium hyaluronate on a skincare ingredient . There indeed is a connection: Sodium hyaluronate is a salt derived from hyaluronic acid. It has all the benefits of hyaluronic acid, but with one extra advantage it’s more easily absorbed than hyaluronic acid.
Note: Also there are use what’s called “low molecular weight” hyaluronic acid, which has a smaller molecule than regular hyaluronic acid. Molecules of “regular” hyaluronic acid are larger, which explains why they remain on skin’s outer surface. Making hyaluronic acid smaller means it can reach a bit farther into skin’s uppermost layers for visibly enhanced results.
