It's no secret that the benefits of hyaluronic acid are legendary. It is one of the best skin moisturizers in modern cosmetics. So what is hyaluronic acid and what are its benefits?
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide found in living organisms, the nervous system, bones, joints and elsewhere. The skin contains about 50% of all hyaluronic acid in the body. This substance is constantly synthesized in the body, but it has been decreasing since the age of 25.
Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains water and thus gives elasticity to the skin. Another useful feature of this substance is that it forms a film on the surface of the epidermis that prevents moisture from evaporating and at the same time protects against aggressive environmental factors.
Ensures a healthy level of moisture that provides a "youthful" rhythm of tissue regeneration. And the skin becomes fresher and regains a healthy tone, is less vulnerable to negative environmental factors, and wrinkles are smoothed out. Hyaluronic acid is a conductor of other beneficial substances in cosmetics. This ingredient is effective for all skin types, but it will be especially useful for owners of dry skin.
The magic hyaluronic acid path to the cream jar was not so easy. Hyaluronic acid molecules are quite large, so the question arose as to how to help them overcome the epidermal barrier in the cream. Scientists have learned how to break down large molecules and use hyaluronic acid in cosmetics so that the molecules penetrate faster, easier and deeper into the epidermis and start working. It is no coincidence that today it is one of the most popular cosmetic ingredients. Korean cosmetics are also notable for their use of hyaluronic acid.
Moisturize the skin lightly before using cosmetic products with hyaluronic acid, this will help prevent the skin from drying out. When there is a lack of moisture on the surface of the skin, hyaluronic acid "pulls" it from the deeper layers of the skin, which leads to the opposite effect - the skin is not moisturized, but rather dried out.
