Hyaluronic Acid In Skin Care
A Miracle Worker or Just a Craze?
~ by Hannah Do ~
Hyaluronic acid in skin care is more than just a craze. With its ability to keep the skin plump and firm, a lot of people rely on it to slow down the signs of skin aging.
Technically, however, hyaluronic acid isn’t a miracle worker. It has to be used consistently if you want to reap the benefits of younger-looking skin. Even the best hyaluronic acid serum won’t work if you’re not going to apply it regularly. You see, hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant. It’s able to draw water into the skin and keep it moisturized. By boosting the skin’s hydration, it’s able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Just imagine a baby’s skin. Babies have plump and supple skin because they are born with high hyaluronic acid levels. As they age, the amount of hyaluronic acid they have diminishes and changes in the structure of their skin begins. This is one good reason why applying topical hyaluronic acid works.
Apart from its ability to retain moisture, HA can also aid in collagen synthesis. Unlike HA, collagen provides the structure of the skin. It’s responsible for strengthening and firming it. In essence, boosting your skin’s collagen production can mean firmer and younger-looking skin.
You can use hyaluronic acid alone or you can partner it with another skin care product. Vitamin C serums make a great option. You can click here to view the most effective ones in the market today.
• Vitamin C serums possess potent antioxidant properties.
• They can keep your skin protected against free radical damage.
• They can also lighten up scars and brighten up skin tone.
• Like HA, these serums can also trigger collagen production.
