What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance present in our bodies.
50% of hyaluronic acid is present in our skin and the remaining 50% is present in our joints as well as the eyes where it has a cushioning effect.
In the skin, it acts as a humectant which means it absorbs water and hydrates the skin, plumps up the skin.
One-fourth teaspoon of hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb about half a gallon of water.
Hyaluronic acid also has the ability to stimulate the wound-healing response.
It is biostimulatory which means stimulates fibroblasts which are cells that help in the production of collagen. Therefore, it improves skin resilience, radiance, pliability, hydration, fine lines, dilated pores and firms the skin as well.
Hyaluronic acid is available in the form of serums, lotions, creams as well as injectables like fillers and skin boosters. Do not get scared by the word acid. It is not an exfoliant it is just a complex sugar, a glycosaminoglycan which is made by repeated sugars bond together.
