As we get older, we tend to lose important nutrients that helped make our skin look smooth and fresh.
Fortunately, using a natural ingredient that contains hyaluronic acid can help reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A Little More About This Ingredient
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present throughout the body, especially concentrated in the eyes and skin. Also called “hyaluronan,” “hyaluronate,” or “HA,” it’s been referred to as the “goo” molecule. We find it in the synovial fluid of joints, as well as in the eyeballs.
For cosmetic purposes, HA is often extracted from the Japanese sweet potato, soy, and gelatinous root vegetables.
Benefits to the Skin
In skin care, we experience a number of benefits from hyaluronic acid:
- Moisturizes/Plumps: The most commonly known benefit of HA is its ability to plump up your look. If you’re suffering from dry skin, or from skin that gets dry throughout the day, HA can be very helpful.
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles: Because of its moisturizing, hydrating, and plumping effect, HA helps to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It works when applied topically.
- Tightens and firms: Hyaluronic acid can help firm and tighten your look, keeping skin supple and with a youthful appearance.
- Protects: When you apply hyaluronic acid to the skin, it forms a protective layer that can help protect from environmental stressors.
We included HA in our Citrus Stem Cell Serum for its ability to help skin hold onto moisture and its ability to firm, plump and tighten. Try it and let us know what you think!
