Skin Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Skin Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Hyaluronic acid is one of the key ingredients in many moisturising and anti-age skincare products. Is it really so effective or is this just a marketing trick? In fact, hyaluronic acid does have a number of remarkable skin benefits. Let’s take a closer look at some of them.

Hyaluronic acid is a 100% natural ingredient; it is distributed widely throughout the human body, in particular, in connective, epithelial and neural tissues, as well as body fluids. The average 70 kg person has about 15 grams of hyaluronic acid, one-third of which is turned over daily.

Hyaluronic acid is a major skin component and plays an important role in skin wound repair and healing. It also helps to keep the skin hydrated due to its ability to capture water molecules and hold them in the epidermis. This property of hyaluronic acid found application in clinical skin treatments: hyaluronic acid in gel form is used as a dermal filling for treating facial wrinkles, providing a result that lasts between 6 and 12 months.

Unfortunately, the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in your body can be negatively affected by various factors, such as everyday stress, UV radiation, etc. When your body produces less hyaluronic acid than it needs, this can result in premature skin ageing, skin dryness, irritation, inflammation, flaking, etc.

Skincare products with hyaluronic acid are designed to make up for the lack of naturally produced hyaluronic acid in your skin. Cosmetic manufacturers and cosmetologists use two main types of hyaluronic acid, low-molecular weight and high-molecular weight. The molecules of high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid are too large to penetrate the skin barrier, so this type of hyaluronic acid is only used in injectable skin treatments. Low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid, however, penetrates the barrier just fine, and thus is a popular ingredient in various skin moisturisers, serums, masks, etc.

Today, hyaluronic acid can be found in a variety of skin and body care products, where it performs several important functions at once. Of course, the most important skin benefit of hyaluronic acid is its ability to retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated from the inside. In addition, it creates an invisible protective barrier on the skin surface, which prevents moisture loss and at the same time allows your skin to breathe.

The second function of hyaluronic acid in skincare products is the regeneration of damaged skin. This ingredient speeds up the healing of skin injuries and reduces the risk of scarring, as well as has a softening and smoothing effect on the skin.

Another function of hyaluronic acid in cosmetics is smoothing the skin and filling wrinkles. Due to its ability to retain moisture, hyaluronic acid makes the skin firmer, improves its elasticity, smooths the skin surface, and makes fine lines and even deeper wrinkles less visible. In addition, it reduces the signs of fatigue and restores the skin’s healthy glow.

Finally, hyaluronic acid helps to protect the skin against UV rays and free radicals, slowing down the skin ageing process, and produces an anti-inflammatory effect. What’s especially great about this skincare ingredient is that it is hypoallergenic and has practically no contraindications; hyaluronic acid is considered safe for people with overly sensitive skin, as well as for pregnant and lactating women.

It should also be noted that, contrary to the expectations of many women, hyaluronic acid contained in cosmetics products doesn’t affect the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in the body, so the effect of such products is temporary. To prolong this effect, as well as improve the production of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin, hyaluronic acid is usually combined with other active ingredients, such as retinol, certain amino acids, peptides, glycolic acid, lactic acid, etc.

Skincare products with hyaluronic acid are currently produced by many manufactures, including those that specialise in natural and organic cosmetics.
