Cellcosmet’s 101 on Hyaluronic Acid

Everything you need to know about this popular — and powerful — ingredient.

Hyaluronic acid (or HA) is a wonder ingredient with myriad benefits. So what exactly is it, and what can it do for your skin? Read on for the answers and to learn why it should be part of your skincare regimen. 

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in many places in our bodies, including in our eyes, joints, and skin — in fact, about half of the body's hyaluronic acid is in the skin. This super molecule plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin's moisture, firmness, and elasticity. It also has antioxidant powers, protecting skin from environmental aggressors.

The Many Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid  

One of the most outstanding properties of hyaluronic acid is its unparalleled ability to retain moisture. This remarkable molecule can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water! When applied topically, it acts like a magnet for moisture, drawing it into the skin and locking it in. This results in a plumping effect that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking and feeling smoother and more youthful.

Who Should Use Hyaluronic Acid?

All skin types should use Hyaluronic Acid, especially those with dry or aging complexions. With the passage of time, the production of key substances in the skin, including HA (along with collagen and elastin) decreases, resulting in lost hydration, volume, and firmness. So it’s almost never too early to begin treating your skin with HA, which delivers a quick and soothing solution to all of these common skincare woes. And not only does hyaluronic acid offer immediate benefits, long-term it also helps to strengthen the skin barrier function, supporting elasticity, and leaving skin noticeably plumper, dewier, and softer.
