Acid on my Skin? YES!


No beauties, it’s not what you think!

This is not a harmful type of acid. On the contrary, hyaluronic acid is wonderful for your skin! Let’s look at the main reasons why.

Hyaluronic acid is a clear, lubricating substance that has the consistency of gel and is actually produced naturally in your body! It is an amazing moisturizer, not only hydrating the skin by drawing water to it, it also holds onto it to prevent moisture loss. It has been reported to 1,000 times its weight in water. {It does what…?? Crazy, right?!} This is also one way it has been hailed as “anti-aging”. Skin that is dry and damaged from sun exposure loves the deep, hydrating drink from hyaluronic acid as it aids in reducing water loss. According to Dr. Josh Axe, “many people report that their skin feels ‘dewier’, the bags under their eyes become lighter and their skin texture is lighter” after using serums that contain hyaluronic acid. Now I can see why it is being applauded for anti-aging effects, those results sound lovely!

Another positive benefit from routine use of serums containing hyaluronic acid: reduced appearance of wrinkles. Why do we gather more wrinkles as we age? Well as we age, our skin loses the ability to preserve moisture, which gives our skin it’s plump, supple appearance. Due to the incredible moisturizing effect of hyaluronic acid, skin is more toned, smooth & brighter. Another perk from strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier, skin is even less prone to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and breakouts!

Could hyaluronic acid benefit skin in another way with its superpowers? Yes! Hyaluronic acid is beneficial with damaged tissue such as cold sores and sunburn. While hyaluronic acid draws in water and keeps it in that area of your skin, it prevents further damage from dryness such as cracking or bleeding. Hyaluronic acid has also been found to protect the skin from damaging UVB rays that can cause sunspots.

A recent study performed in 2014 on thirty-three women with the average age of 45 showed to demonstrate “a significant benefit in decreasing the depth of wrinkles (up to 40%), and skin hydration (up to 96%) and skin firmness and elasticity were significantly enhanced (up to 55%) at the end of eight weeks”. Wow!
