Hyaluronic Acid-The All-Rounder

Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound that occurs in the body. It is responsible for keeping the skin hydrating by keeping water trapped in the cells. Hyaluronic helps keep the skin soft, supple and youthful. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases, and our skin starts showing signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, etc. Including hyaluronic acid externally helps combat these problems. It is available in the form of creams, serums, ointments, eye drops, injections and dietary supplements. Hyaluronic acid has several benefits. Some of them are listed below.
  • Intense Hydration: One of the most remarkable properties of hyaluronic acid is its ability to provide intense hydration. It has the capacity to hold about 1000 times its weight in water. This makes it a powerful humectant. When you apply a hyaluronic acid-based product to your skin, it binds moisture to the skin’s surface, ensuring optimum hydration levels. The hydrating power of hyaluronic acid gives a youthful radiance to all skin types- oily, dry or sensitive.
  • Restoring Youthfulness: As we age, our skin’s natural reserve of hyaluronic acid decreases gradually. This causes the skin to look dry and aged. Fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots start to creep in. Hyaluronic acid products help to replenish the hyaluronic acid levels in the skin. By binding to the skin cells, hyaluronic acid helps to lock in moisture and restores the natural plumpness and youthfulness of the skin.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Due to its intense hydration and moisture-locking properties, hyaluronic acid promotes improved skin texture. It makes the skin smooth, soft and supple and gives it an even texture. It reduces the skin’s roughness, making it an ideal choice for people desiring soft, smooth, baby-like skin.
  • Improved Elasticity: Loss of elasticity is a common occurrence in the skin as we age. Hyaluronic acid helps restore this elasticity by improving the skin’s natural barrier function and by promoting the synthesis of collagen. This helps to make the skin plump and supple. The skin also looks more firm, thus imparting a youthful and radiant look.
  • Rapid Absorption: Most of the skincare products like creams and serums form a thick layer on the top of your skin. They need to be massaged well or left overnight for them to be absorbed and start working. Hyaluronic acid, however, gets absorbed very easily and quickly from your skin. This means that it starts acting that much more quickly and shows results sooner than other products. This lightweight moisturisation is one of the primary reasons why hyaluronic acid products are most sought after.
  • Skin Repair And Healing: Along with hydration and moisturising, hyaluronic acid plays an important role in promoting the skin’s natural repair and healing. Its presence in the skin is very beneficial for wound healing. It is commonly prescribed as a post-procedure ointment that promotes the growth of new skin. Hyaluronic acid is also extremely soothing for inflamed, irritated skin as in the case of sunburn.
  • Compatibility: Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that is compatible with almost all other ingredients that go into skin care products. Not only does it blend well with the other ingredients, but it also enhances and improves their action on the skin. Hyaluronic acid can be used in combination with a host of other ingredients like retinol, vitamin C and peptides to create a well-rounded and balanced skincare routine.
  • Prevention Of Water Loss: When exposed to several environmental pollutants, our skin loses its hydration and becomes dry and dehydrated. This is known as Trans-Epidermal Water Loss. Applying a hyaluronic acid-based product prevents this. Hyaluronic acid acts as a barrier between the skin and the pollutants,locking in the moisture- thereby preventing the skin from drying out.
  • Gentleness: The molecular structure of hyaluronic acid is well-tolerated by the skin. Unlike other skincare products that cause allergic reactions and irritation, hyaluronic acid is extremely gentle on the skin. Hyaluronic acid-based products rarely cause adverse reactions. They are well-tolerated by all skin types. People with sensitive skin, acne-prone skin, sunburnt skin, or rosacea-prone skin can all enjoy the benefits of hyaluronic acid without any fear.
  • Versatility: Hyaluronic acid products come in different formulations and combinations. This makes it useful to cater to individuals with different requirements and preferences. A lightweight moisturiser for daytime use or a rich cream for night-time moisturisation, hyaluronic acid is available in all forms. This versatility is what makes hyaluronic acid the star of all skincare ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid has truly revolutionised the way skincare is approached. Its versatility, in terms of formulations (like creams, serums or ointments )and solutions (like hydration, anti-ageing and moisturising) make it a very sought-after product. Its gentleness on all skin types and compatibility with other skin care products are all a big plus. Include hyaluronic acid-based products in your skincare routine and reap the benefits of this marvellous ingredient.
