Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, hyaluronate, HA, glycoaminoglycan, glycoaminoglycane, hyaluran, hyaluronate Sodium, hylan, and sodium hyaluronate is touted as the "fountain of youth” by the beauty industry. Hyaluronic acid’s fame is well-earned. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin, making it an excellent moisturiser. No other biological substance can retain as much water as HA resulting in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles.
First off, don’t let the word “acid” fool you. Hyaluronic acid isn’t harsh or skin-stripping at all. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant (aka moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plump and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) and is present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are compounds in your skin and other connective tissues. Hyaluronic acid is needed to bind collagen with elastin, which are fibers that give your skin its stretch.
Although hyaluronic acid can be found naturally in most every cell in the body, it's greatest concentrations are found in the skin tissue. Almost half the body's hyaluronic acid is found in the skin's collagen. It is found in both the skin's deep underlying dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers. Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid. It keeps the skin stay young and healthy.
Both hyaluronic acid and collagen are important because they maintain the skin's layers and structure. Collagen firms the skin while hyaluronic acid nourishes and hydrates the collagen. Hyaluronic acid retains water, keeping the collagen moist and elastic. With age, the ability of the skin to produce hyaluronic acid decreases. The hyaluronic acid provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water.
Young people possess plump, smooth, and highly elastic skin because they have high concentrations of hyaluronic acid that maintains healthy skin. It's particularly important to skin appearance because about 50 percent of the body's supply is located in the skin tissues, where the viscous, jelly-like substance helps keep it plump, soft and supple.
Our ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines with age, which can lead to increased dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. The skin thus retains and holds less water while the membranes covering our internal organs and joints shrink.
DID YOU KNOW Adults only have 1/20th the amount of hyaluronic acid of a baby.
Moreover, the skin becomes drier and thinner while it loses its hydration. From age 40, ageing becomes visible as our skin loses elasticity forming lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can be used to slow down the ageing process by binding with water and maintaining wrinkle-free skin.
When applied to the skin, hyaluronic acid penetration efficacy depends on the size of the molecules. 95% of all hyaluronic acid serums sold today use the larger molecules which does not penetrate the skin effectively which means you're not getting your money's worth. The most potent topical form of hyaluronic acid is in a serum form and should be applied to clean, bare and ideally damp (or even wet) skin as the first step in your skincare regimen. Damp or wet skin helps to lock in the moisture.
