Hyaluronic acid was a bit of a buzz word recently. It seems to have been forgotten a little bit, but here’s why it can make a massive, noticeable difference in any skin type:
Hyaluronic Acid is found all throughout the body, particularly in the eyes, throughout the skin and in cartilage. It’s known in the body as Hyaluronan. It’s one very special ingredient, as it holds up to 1000 times it’s own weight in moisture. When you think about it, that’s going to be a great thing for cushioning those parts that are protected by cartilage, great for keeping the eyes sweaty (as I describe it, anyway!), and when it comes to skin, it makes magic. Applied to the skin, it penetrates deeply, creating a breathable layer (allowing our precious oxygen to flow free, effectively delivering nutrients to the skin), which plumps up as it soaks up and holds moisture from within the deeper layers, (also preventing dehydrated skins from moisture escaping due to evaporation).
It also has great healing benefits, which translates very well into a skin prone to breakout. Dehydrated skin tends to breakout much easier. Hyaluronic Acid can help reverse this. It’s also great for healing, so is fantastic defence against the infection that causes acne.
