What does hyaluronic acid do to your skin?

One of our specials this month is 20% off the price of our HA Intensifier.

HA Intensifier is unique formulation that has a high concentration of hyaluronic acid.

And while you may have used it and are enthusiastic about it, have you ever wondered what hyaluronic acid does to your skin?

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?

By the end of today’s post, you will learn what hyaluronic acid does to your skin and why you should snap up the HA Intensifier special during this month of June.

What does hyaluronic acid do to your skin?

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your skin.

It is viscous and elastic (think “Jello“) and so acts as an excellent lubricating agent in several parts of your body including your eyes and joints between bones.

One of the characteristics of hyaluronic acid is that is binds and mixes with water very easily.

This makes it a perfect medium for storing moisture.

This makes hyaluronic acid especially important for your skin because skin that is well moisturized also looks fresh and supple.

In medicine, hyaluronic acid is applied on the skin and used to treat wounds, burns and skin ulcers.

Scientists have also found that hyaluronic acid has antioxidant activity.

This means that hyaluronic acid stops reactive oxygen species (read more about that here) from causing damage to your skin.

Over-exposure to the sun’s UV rays, for instance, can increase the number of oxygen radicals in your skin.

Over time, this leads to wrinkles and lines.

When you include hyaluronic acid as part of your daily skin regimen, you are boosting your body’s natural levels.

And of course this will help to keep your skin well moisturized and protected from damage.

Does hyaluronic acid have side effects?

Hyaluronic acid is largely safe and rarely causes allergic reaction.

Nonetheless, you should always exercise caution when you use it.

Hyaluronic acid might be unsafe for women who are breast-feeding. And this is mainly because researchers don’t know the effect it has on the baby.

If you use hyaluronic acid formulations like the HA Intensifier and you are currently breast-feeding, make sure to ask your doctor if it is right for you.
