Hyaluronic Acid: What is it and How it Benefits You?
When people use the word “acid” in reference to essential skincare, it can seem counterintuitive and a bit scary, so let’s break it down! Read on for our take on hyaluronic acid, a powerful anti-aging factor in today’s skincare industry.
Hyaluronic acid revitalizes and rehydrates the skin, smoothing and softening the outer layers — instantly smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles — and is a powerful anti-aging factor in modern skincare. Hyaluronic acid is calming, soothing and contains many antioxidants that can rejuvenate skin. It is becoming more widely used in serums and moisturizers across the skincare spectrum. It is naturally occurring in the skin and connective tissue and helps to lubricate the connective tissue, joints and eyes. Hyaluronic acid can absorb up to 1,000 times their weight in water, which makes it an impressive and powerful way to rehydrate the skin.
As we age, the skin doesn’t retain moisture as easily. Hyaluronic acid can help the skin to stay soft and supple by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, and firm the skin. It also helps to support healing by acting as an anti-inflammatory and moisturizing the skin. It can aid in skin protection and help to fight damaging UVA rays. If you have other questions and want to add this anti-aging compound to your skincare regimen, please contact your doctor or dermatologist.
Some hyaluronic acid is derived from animals. At Babo Botanicals, we certainly do not use this derivation of the acid. Babo proudly sources our hyaluronic acid from fermented and Non-GMO corn and yeast. This is a very big difference from many of the products on the market.
