The Skin Care Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

November 19, 2019

Seed Extra Moisturizing Face Cream Features Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid may be one of the most misunderstood ingredients in skin care. When people see the word acid, they often associate it with a component of chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid. Do not let the word acid scare you. It's not what you think it is.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance with remarkable skin care benefits. In science-speak, it is a mucopolysaccharide, a carbohydrate, and a moisture-retaining molecule. This unique substance can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, allowing it to act as a moisture magnet.

 

10 skin care benefits of hyaluronic acid

  • Skin replenishing, helping restore moisture to dry skin
  • Provides weightless moisture, making it ideal for oily skin
  • Calming, making it perfect for sensitive skin
  • Provides antioxidant benefits, helping shield against environmental contaminants
  • Revitalizes skin's outer layer, giving aging skin a plumper and more youthful appearance
  • Helps draw and retain moisture, for a dewy glow
  • Helps improve texture, making skin smoother and more supple
  • May help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes where skin lacks natural moisture
  • Superior moisture-binding properties
  • Maximizes collagen levels, helping skin look more youthful and vibrant

 

Who can use hyaluronic acid?

Everyone can use hyaluronic acid, even those with inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea. In fact, it is often used topically in health care settings to treat wounds and skin ulcers. Whether you have the most oily type of skin or most dry, hyaluronic acid will offer a multitude of skin benefits to help your skin look and feel healthy and hydrated.
