Surprising facts about Hyaluronic Acid and your skin
Let’s get to know this 5-star performing ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid (or referred to as HA) is a sugar naturally occurring in the body that attracts and holds onto moisture in our skin cells, giving skin a hydrated and plump look and feel. Hyaluronic Acid=hydration. Here’s two very vivid examples of HA working naturally (1) the red comb of a Rooster stands straight up because it swells with HA, it's actually the world’s richest known source (2) the chubby, plump cheeks of a baby – when HA is at its highest in our bodies. Makes sense now, right?
As we age, the natural production of HA in our bodies starts to dwindle, and especially after menopause, there is a serious decline of HA which results in visible wrinkles. This is why it's incredibly important to counter the natural decrease in our body by feeding the skin HA that is compatible, in addition to ingredients that support the retention of hydration in the skin. You can find HA in an array of formulations for skin such as serums, moisturizers and sheet masks. (BONUS TIP: eat a lot of fruits and veggies because this healthy diet helps your body retain HA longer)
