At Skin Smart Dermatology and Skin Care Center, we strive to feature the latest developments in skin care. One we’re particularly excited about is hyaluronic acid, which has fantastic anti-aging and moisturizing properties.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a type of glycosaminoglycan, a naturally occurring substance the body uses for lubrication and tissue repair. Hyaluronic acid is most concentrated in the eyes and joints, but can be found in your skin, too.
What Can Hyaluronic Acid Do?
A lot! Hyaluronic acid has tons of utility. In medical settings, it’s used to treat conditions like osteoarthritis and cataracts. For skin care, it’s ideal for refreshing and rejuvenating aging or damaged skin.
Hyaluronic acid is amazing at holding onto moisture. In fact, a single gram of hyaluronic acid can store six liters of water! Hyaluronic acid ensures your skin has the moisture it needs for a smooth and firm appearance.
Unfortunately, your body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid decreases over time. By the time you reach age 50, your skin has lost 50% of the hyaluronic acid it had at age 20. For this reason, hyaluronic acid-boosting skin care products are an essential part of any skin care regimen.
What Products Contain Hyaluronic Acid?
One of our favorites is SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator – which you can purchase from the comfort of home in our online store!
As the name implies, the HA5 moisturizer contains a proprietary mixture of five types of hyaluronic acid. That means when you use this product, you take advantage of a scientifically crafted formula for skin health.
Furthermore, HA5 doesn’t just provide your skin with additional hyaluronic acid. This moisturizer actually increases skin’s ability to replenish its own supply. With the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, your skin will be more radiant than ever.
