If you are not fully familiar with the benefits of hyaluronic acid for healthy looking skin then you arent alone; hyaluronic acid remains a well kept secret among experts within the skin-care industry. Of course, there is good reason behind the shroud of secrecy hyaluronic acid gets great results and could potentially cut into the profits of those trying to sell more expensive surgical procedures for fine lines and other routine damage that responds beautifully to the healing effects of hyaluronic acid.
The secret to hyaluronic acid is actually simple once you understand how it works. Because it is a naturally occurring substance found in skin, collagen and other areas of the body there is little irritation or risk of allergy, unlike other popular skin care products. However, don’t confuse gentle with a lack of efficacy. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water within the cells of the skin and tissue underneath, literally acting like a sponge to retain a supple, firm skin tone and youthful appearance. In fact, HA excels in this area and is actually able to absorb approximately 1,000 times its own weight inside the extracellular spaces within the matrix of the skin. It plumps skin and enhances the volume to create that same firm yet soft and supple skin associated with youth. Changes can be seen in as little as 30 minutes and last up to six months or even longer depending upon the method of delivery, duration of use and formulation. Additionally, hyaluronic acid is able to effectively penetrate the skin and assist in the delivery of other important ingredients to aide in the healing and restoration required in the maintenance of supple skin.
Unfortunately, the naturally occurring levels of hyaluronic acid produced by the body tend to decline over time. As we age, the body begins to produce less and less hyaluronic acid while the cumulative environmental impact of radiation, chemicals, poor nutrition and other hazards continue to take their toll. Delicate facial tissue tends to show it first as the impact of dehydration, loss of collagen and reduction of elastin form fine lines, wrinkles and loss of supple skin tone.
It is possible to replace or enhance the body’s own production of hyaluronic acid through diet, injections or just the regular application of a topical cream; however, there are some tactical considerations to keep in mind. Injections are effective for three to six months but require the use of needles and have a tendency to fade over time leading to an inconsistent facial appearance as well as gradual onset of new wrinkles.
The most consistent hyaluronic acid approach is the use of a daily serum or topical but unfortunately, few cosmetics use hyaluronic acid in their formularies due to the significant cost in comparison to inferior ingredients. Not only does it provide consistent results but delivers a steady supply of hydration and other important elements required to fight fine lines and wrinkles on a regular basis.
