Hyaluronic acid- A Gimmick or a Holy Grail?
Our life is more of a hustle and stress. And with this cacophony of city life, we also need to gear up the TLC process to combat the harsh environmental situations of the city life. But to adopt an effective TLC, effective ingredients should be incorporated into it; which means we should be aware of what is suited when. The basic step to skincare is moisturizing regardless of your skin type. People often mistake that they do not need to moisturize their skin provided they have oily skin. But this is a myth. Moisturizing is necessary no matter what sort of skin type you are associated with. But moisturizing with the right ingredients is the key. This is when facial acids should be introduced to your skin.
A bang to your skin care!
We have heard many beauty/lifestyle influencers rave about Hyaluronic acid. But is it worth the hype? Who knows? Let’s find out!
Hyaluronic acid or Hyaluronan is actually a carbohydrate molecule (contradicting the fact that it is called an acid) which is naturally present in our body and is a constantly occurring compound. Its purpose in the body is to lubricate the connective tissues of our joints and skin, and is a vital part of our skin’s health.
HA (hyaluronic acid) is present in many areas of our body including our eyes, internal fluids, and connective tissue, but much of it is in our skin, which accounts for 50% of your body’s total HA level.
But even being present naturally in the body, it serves as a great skin care ingredient if applied to the skin.
This acid is one of a kind and suits everyone regardless of your skin type.
If you are planning to amp up your skincare results and want to add some extra oomph to your skin, here's a fact you must know-
Based on science and research, HA is a gem if added to your skincare regimen.
Here are the 3 major benefits that HA provides you with:
Your skin is more prone to damage and infections if its dry. HA molecule can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and hence is a great humectant to hold and retain moisture, providing the right amount of moisture to the skin and allowing the skin to absorb it. The moisture also acts as a barrier between your skin and the environment, is non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores) keeping your skin well hydrated and healthy.
The anti-ageing properties of Hyaluronic acid helps you to get rid of sagginess along with all the pesky lines and wrinkles due to aging by toning and lifting the skin up by retaining its suppleness; basically reversing the clock and providing a more plumper and firmer skin.
Hyaluronic acid acts enormously and significantly as a healing and soothing agent. It acts as an antioxidant and helps to defend UV damage and damage caused by free radicals which break down collagen and elastin to age our skin making wrinkles and sagging more prominent.
In a nutshell, Hyaluronic acid is a marvelous bang when it comes to skin care and skin’s health for its moisturizing, anti-aging and health-boosting powers and is a must to incorporate it into your skin care routine.
