You’re probably wondering how any health and beauty ingredient with acid in its name can possibly be safe and beneficial to your skin. The thought of applying Hyaluronic Acid to your face might even instill a little fear. Yet, it seems to be all the rage and as it turns out, Hyaluronic Acid is actually a harmless and potentially helpful acid used in many skincare products. We are going to explore some of its properties and embrace some of the many benefits of welcoming some to your skincare routine.

Let’s start at the beginning. What exactly is Hyaluronic Acid? Did you know that Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance already present in our bodies? It is a natural moisture-binding substance that creates hydration. It is found in largest concentration in our skin. Unfortunately, with age, our natural supply of Hyaluronic Acid starts to decrease. What does that mean? Sadly, it means loss of hydration and breakdown of skin elasticity, leading to the unwelcomed appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

Now let’s move on to some of the benefits of adding a little Hyaluronic Acid to your daily beauty and skincare routine. First, we will state the obvious. The increase to your skin’s moisture. Having sufficiently hydrated skin can help with the following:

Reduce the appearance of wrinkles - Hyaluronic Acid expands when retaining moisture, giving your skin a plumper, more youthful appearance as time goes on.

Hyaluronic Acid is also beneficial to your body’s natural collagen production, as water is necessary for this protein to be made.

Reduce skin dryness and the discomfort often associated with skin dryness - The amount of Hyaluronic Acid we produce on our own lessens with age, leaving your skin dry, dull, and sensitive over time. This kind of dryness can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. By adding Hyaluronic Acid into your daily routine, you can help to combat some of the tell-tale signs of aging all while nourishing your skin.

Reduce the appearance of skin redness – There are many reasons why we suffer from skin redness. The added moisture from Hyaluronic Acid has a natural calming effect on the skin and can be helpful in visibly reducing skin redness and irritation.

Before we reveal our favorite Hyaluronic Acid products, let’s talk about diet. There are a few foods that may help increase your own natural Hyaluronic Acid production. Next time you head out grocery shopping or prepare for your food delivery, it won’t hurt to consider adding all or some of the following items to your list:

Root vegetables

Leafy greens

Citrus fruits

Soy based foods

Bone broth

No worries if these foods don’t excite your palate. You don’t necessarily need to ingest anything to get the much-needed boost of Hyaluronic Acid that your skin is craving. With so many skincare product choices available, it is often difficult to pick just one and the right one. We are going to take out all the guess work for you and highlight a few customer favorites.
