Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for Skin
Hyaluronic acid is one of the newer crazes in skincare but with its variety of benefits it is here to stay. Commonly abbreviated to AH, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found throughout our bodies that holds the key to smooth and flawless skin, among other things. Here’s a rundown of some of the benefits of hyaluronic acid for your skin and how it can make a big impact:
HA is a humectant, meaning it has an incredible ability to draw in and hold water. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000x its molecular weight in water and when it penetrates the skin it binds water to cells to infuse all layers with rejuvenating moisture. HA is a natural and crucial component in the moisture and elasticity of our skin already but its concentration decreases as we age, so using products like Peach and Lily’s Glass Skin Refining Serum will keep your skin as moisturized as it was when you were younger. This hydration will also lead to clearer skin, especially for those with naturally oily skin.
Enhancing the Lipid Barrier
Our skin exists to protect our body from all the harmful toxins we’re bombarded with on a daily basis and as we age the lipid barrier in the skin’s top barrier, called the epidermis, gradually gets less effective. Another benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it slows this process and fortifies our skin’s natural barriers so it’s more effectively protective for longer.
Brighter, Smoother, and less Wrinkly Skin
With the increased hydration and the lipid barrier enhanced, our skin is spending less time fighting against age factors and environmental pollutants, which makes it bouncier and brighter for longer and prevents wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid will also give your skin a tighter appearance, as the moisture it provides tightens your overall complexion and firms facial contours for a more youthful appearance. Your skin will also look and feel smoother for the same reasons.
Skin Cell Regeneration and Healthier Cells
Hyaluronic acid promotes skin cell regeneration and healthy skin cells with its extra hydration the assist it gives to the lipid barrier. In turn, the healthier skin will help not only reduce but prevent age spots and pigmentation issues.
