There is a lot of praise for skin care containing hyaluronic acid in the formula. So what exactly is the stuff? And why do you want it?
Hyaluronic acid is scientifically proven (tried and true) to be seriously good for your skin. Firstly rest assured the word “acid” in the name can make it easy misunderstood. Hyaluronic acid IS NOT harsh or skin-stripping at all.
It is completely the opposite—a powerful humectant (aka moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plump and hydrated and, yes, young-looking.
“Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body,” explains Arielle Kauvar, M.D., director of New York Laser and Skin Care. “It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin. It’s also present in the eyes and in the joint spaces, where it acts as a lubricant and ‘shock absorber.’ ”Know how a baby’s skin always looks so deliciously dewy and pillowy? It’s because babies are born with a high level of hyaluronic acid, which keeps their skin plump and smooth. Unfortunately, your body produces less and less hyaluronic acid over time. “The amount of hyaluronic acid in skin diminishes with age, most significantly after age 40,” notes Dr. Kauvar.
Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful Anti Aging Ingredient to keep your skin looking young
While you’re never going to get back that perfectly dewy baby-skin, it is possible to help restore the skin’s hyaluronic acid content and give grown-up skin a younger, fresher, more supple look.
“Even though hyaluronic acid is a relatively large molecule, when you apply it topically it penetrates the dead cell layer (stratum corneum) and permeates the skin,” says Dr. Kauvar. “It increases hydration, improves elasticity and also reverses free radical damage, so it may have some benefit in protecting from UV damage.”Bonus? Hyaluronic acid is one ingredient that works across the board. “Every skin type, even oily, can benefit,” says New York City dermatologist Francesca Fusco, M.D. “Apply it alone if you have oily skin or under moisturizer if you have dry skin. It works well with acne medications, anti-aging products and sunscreens.”
