Everything you need to know about Hyaluronic Acid

We see and hear about Hyaluronic acid everywhere, but what is it really? Is it an “acid”? What do Hyaluronic acids do? What effects can you count on? How to use it in the best way? We have gathered everything you need to know about Hyaluronic acids.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is known for its ability to 'reverse' or stop the signs of aging. Despite the name Hyaluronic acid, it is not an acid but a moisture-binding sugar molecule (also called glycosaminoglycan) that is found naturally in the skin. In the body, HA forms a jelly-like substance and has the ability to bind moisture up to 1000 times its own weight and acts as a moisturizing and shock-absorbing filling material in the skin.

What is Hyaluronic acid good for?

As we age, we produce less Hyaluronic acid. The skin becomes drier and less elastic, which leads to us developing wrinkles. HA maintains the moisture balance in the skin which promotes cell renewal and is therefore a necessary ingredient.

When not to use hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a very kind ingredient that can be used by basically everyone, regardless of skin type. You can not use too much, see it as a moisture magnet. But what you should keep in mind is that HA requires moisture to be able to bind more moisture.

The effects of Hyaluronic acid on the skin

  • - Promotes cell renewal and the production of collagen and elastin.
  • - Improves the skin from the inside, which gives a smoother skin.
  • - Attracts and retains moisture in and on the skin.
  • - Acts like a moisture filler and a shock absorber with moisture in the skin
  • - Helps to increase the antioxidant defense in the skin, makes the skin more resistant to free radicals.

Tip! To get the maximum effect of hyaluronic acid - moisturize the skin a little with a mist / water before applying your skin care product with hyaluronic acid in, or put on your serum BEFORE you jump into the shower. Hyaluronic acid needs water to be able to bind even more moisture to the skin.
