Do you remember when leopard print was an up-and-coming fashion trend? Us neither. Because what started off as a one-hit runway wonder soon became the norm. Well, hyaluronic acid is the ‘leopard print’ of the beauty world. Soon after it surged onto the scene as a new, exciting ingredient, it became a skincare saviour in its own right – and is showing no signs of disappearing anytime soon.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Don’t let the ‘acid’ part fool you into thinking it’s harmful. In scientific terms, hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in the body – mostly in the joints, connective tissue and eyes. Each molecule has the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water which makes it a super hydrating compound.
As the body ages, the natural production of HA slows down and so does the ability to preserve moisture.
How Is Hyaluronic Acid Used for Skin?
When this molecule is used in skincare, it essentially acts like a sponge to revitalize the skin’s outer layer. And as we all know, when skin is hydrated it looks more luminous and rejuvenated. So it’s no surprise this ingredient is used predominately in the anti-ageing skincare realm.
Boasting toning, firming and plumping properties, hyaluronic acid-infused products, like hyaluronic acid serum, is an effective option to achieve a younger-looking complexion. Bye-bye, wrinkles!
The ingredient can also be used in dermal fillers as a result of its richly hydrating properties.
