The Tea on Hyaluronic Acid
We keep hearing about it everywhere! Hyaluronic acid seems to have popped up out of nowhere and now all of a sudden everyone is talking about it!
Well, we’ve got the tea! Keep reading!
Perhaps the most important thing we should tackle first is whether or not hyaluronic acid is natural. Well, yes it is. HA is naturally found in our bodies. It acts as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues of our bodies. It also helps our bodies respond to injury by helping to reduce swelling.
As we age, HA decreases and is no longer as present in our skin and bodies as it was once in our early years. This is why as we age, the moisture and elasticity of our skin begins to change. This is why it has become so popular in the skincare realm over the past few years.
HA = Hydration
HA can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water! That’s wild! Can we say hello to moisture and rejuvenation for our skin.
HA= Reduces Visibility of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Because HA is so great at hydrating, it directly results in reduction of the visibility of lines and wrinkles.
In short, HA is your friend. We lose it naturally as we age, but thanks to science we are able to include it back in our routines regardless of where we are on the timeline of life!
