Your skin, your joints, and your eyes all have a significant amount of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It helps lubricate your joints, comprises the vitreous fluid inside your eyes, and is a major component of your skin.
Also known as sodium hyaluronate, HA helps repair damaged tissue and promotes the growth of new skin cells. It is particularly helpful and necessary for repairing damage from too much sun. When you get sunburned, your skin makes less HA, and your skin cells stop thriving. This leads to thinner, less healthy-looking skin. A good hyaluronic acid moisturizer will help restore your skin’s health.
Hyaluronic Acid has been called a “fountain of youth,” after scientists discovered that it is responsible for scarless healing of skin wounds in babies prior to birth.
As a skin moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid is known for its ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in moisture. Look for it in your face cream.
