The Holy Grail of Rejuvenation: Hyaluronic Acid
Though the word “acid” may sound scary, don’t worry, it doesn’t burn. In fact, hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Lets take a deep dive into hyaluronic acid's skin-boosting benefits, including mega moisture, collagen and why its a great product for acne and rosacea sufferers. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist delivering that plump supple skin we all aim to achieve.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. It helps keep skin hydrated, firm, and smooth. It is also used as a treatment for joint pain and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can be applied topically through creams or serums, or taken orally as supplements.
How Hyaluronic Acid works
As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health with its unique ability to hold in moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid).
Hyaluronic acid is also a “smart nutrient” as it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity—relative to the season and the climate. Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent source of hydration for all skin types including those with acne, Eczema and Rosacea.
If you suffer from Rosacea, Eczema or red and sensitive skin, Hyaluronic Acid is one of the only acids you should be using, given that it is super hydrating and not your typical "acid" product. When applied to the skin, Hyaluronic Acid can reduce wrinkles and redness while increasing moisture levels and hydration! For those that suffer from red skin and Rosacea, look to find a Hyaluronic Acid Serum with an ingredient called Niacinamide, otherwise known as Vitamin B3. This ingredient coupled with HA, acts as an antioxidant, is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and has anti-aging benefits.
This ingredient helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, even skin tone, skin pigmentation and sebum production which is sometimes accompanied by red skin. Niacinamide is used commonly to help treat acne and Rosacea and can help improve the epidermal barrier function and increase ceramides.
A best selling serum for Rosacea and dry skin that has these ingredients, HA and Niacinamide is a product called HylaSilk by PriyanaMD. A super, light-weight silky serum that grown in massive popularity that's affordable, easy-to-use and delivers results. Check out HylaSilk® Triple Action Moisture Boost Serum
