Hyaluronic acid. You’ve probably heard about it, and you’re probably wondering why this ingredient is so popular? Loved by all that try it and named as something of a holy grail skincare product by skincare gurus everywhere, hyaluronic acid has a lot of hype around it, and to be quite honest, it’s not hard to see why.
We love it too.
We love it so much, in fact, that we’ve included it as a key, research-backed ingredient in our debut skincare product The Glow Booster: the latest collagen supplement for skin.
But before you implement hyaluronic acid and The Glow Booster into your routine, if you’re not familiar with the ingredient, it might be a good idea to answer some of your burning questions. What is hyaluronic acid, what are the key hyaluronic acid benefits, and the big one: how to use hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
You know what, that’s a very, very good question.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance in the body, that is naturally present, primarily in your eyes and joints within your connective tissue. If we want to get into the nitty gritty of it all, it’s a clear, gooey substance. Mmmm...
Hyaluronic acid works within the body to creating a natural cushioning effect, as well as a lubricant to ensure that joint and tissue is maintained, preventing pain and friction throughout the body. As well as this, though, investigation into the use of hyaluronic acid has discovered that the naturally-occurring ingredient is hugely beneficial when it comes to skincare.
An investigation conducted in the Czech Republic into the use of hyaluronic acid as a natural moisturiser for skincare use found that topical use of hyaluronic acid is beneficial when used in both moisturising and anti-aging skincare products. Nice.
Why do people use Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a popular product due to the skin’s natural reduction in natural concentration levels of this ingredient as we age.
It’s effectiveness as a staple in the natural skincare sphere has earned itself a spot in skincare routines everywhere and is very often included as a key ingredient in moisturisers, serums and in skincare supplements such as The Glow Booster, too.
