WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID FOR YOUR SKIN?
Hyaluronic acid is an extremely hydrophilic sugar complex that is naturally present in the human body and found in the joints, muscles, eyes, and especially the skin. The level of hyaluronic acid in the skin reduces with age, leading to sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. Using it topically brings a number of benefits for your skin, which you’ll find in this article.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is an active ingredient found in the body’s extracellular matrix. Almost 50% of it is in the dermis, in the deepest layer of the skin. The other half is found in the eyes and the joints. Hyaluronic acid was discovered in 1934 in the vitreous humor of a bovine eye by Karl Meyer and John Palmerer. In the animal kingdom, hyaluronic acid is mainly found in a cockerel comb and the cartilage of an ox’s muzzle.
Hyaluronic acid is designed to maintain skin hydration. It helps to form connective tissues in the dermis, and serves as a support for collagen and elastin fibers, playing a major role in the skin’s density and tone.
Hyaluronic acid is frequently used in injections in aesthetic medicine. It’s also found in many skincare products that can be very effective, and less invasive than injections.
The benefits of hyaluronic acid for your skin.
Hyaluronic acid is found in many skincare products (serums, creams, lotions, balms…). Its benefits are many and varied:
Hyaluronic acid hydrates your skin.
It acts like a molecular sponge, capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. It’s especially effective for taking care of dehydrated skin, as well as mature skin suffering with sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid combines with water to fill intercellular space, which hydrates, softens and tones the skin, leaving it firm and supple.
Hyaluronic acid forms a protective barrier against external irritants.
It helps to reinforce your skin’s natural barrier and protects your skin from harmful UV rays and free radicals.
Hyaluronic acid helps with skin healing.
It calms irritations and redness, and contributes to the reconstruction of damaged tissue.
