We often get asked questions about hyaluronic acid and its efficiency. In our opinion, hyaluronic acid is one of the greatest single ingredients in skincare, therefore we decided it serves its own FAQ section.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in our skin. Molecules of hyaluronic acid are attracted and binded to water that helps to retain moisture in skin. Due to this ability hyaluronic acid is one of the most popular ingredients in skincare and especially face moisturisers.
What does hyaluronic acid do for skin?
Applied topically, hyaluronic acid prevents water from escaping from the surface of the skin as well as works as a humectant, meaning it also draws moisture from the surroundings. As a result, it replenishes a lot of water in the skin that produces amazing effects on all skins, but especially dry and dehydrated ones. It revitalises skin surface, so it looks and feels softer and smoother. This instantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Is hyaluronic acid good for anti-aging?
Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that intensively moisturises your skin and therefore it is very helpful in fighting aging. With age our skin reduces its ability to retain water resulting in dull, saggy appearance, lack of plumpness and therefore fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid retains water in skin and therefore plumps the skin up and noticeably reduces appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Can hyaluronic acid be taken orally
Hyaluronic acid supplements are widely available for purchase, even in our shop (B37 Sealuronic Oral Sea Mineral And Hyaluronic Acid Food Supplement , B45 Collagen Pure With Maqui Extract And Hyaluronic Acid Drink) . They are proved to be helpful when it comes to the skin appearance. The study done in Japan over a 12-week period showed that people taking hyaluronic acid supplements orally showed significant improvements in skin condition and plumpness of it resulting in wrinkles and fine lines reduction. HA supplements are also beneficial for joints’ health and help people with osteoarthritis.
