Did you know that hyaluronic acid is a substance that our body naturally produces? People think it’s just another skincare ingredient, but in fact, it’s found in the skin to aid in moisture and hydration. Of course, it’s also a highly common ingredient found in skincare products, such as moisturizing creams, ointments, and serums for its multitude of benefits. We’ll explore those benefits in this article.
It's Kind of a Big Deal
Hyaluronic acid is used in skincare products, like our 3X Anti-Aging Boost, thanks to its ability to moisturize and replenish skin. It is said to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture. It’s also a humectant, which means it works double time by drawing in moisture from its surroundings. Is there any wonder why hyaluronic acid is an active ingredient in many moisturizers, serums, cleansers, and eye creams?
If you struggle with dry skin, you’ll benefit most from using products that contain this ingredient. But keep in mind that it’s suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Just make sure the product you use is fragrance-free, as the added fragrance can cause irritations and breakouts for individuals with sensitive skin.
If you’re wondering how one ingredient can be so effective, you aren’t alone. Luckily, researchers have provided us with a credible hypothesis. Many experts believe that hyaluronic acid works so well with our bodies because it’s a class of sugars, also known as disaccharides, which we naturally produce.
Now that you know it’s a major hydration boost, curious to know what else it can do?
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
We would be doing this ingredient a disservice if we only harped on one of its benefits. People also use it to:
- Reduce dry skin.
- Replenish dehydrated skin without causing breakouts.
- Reduce redness and dermatitis (inflammation of the skin).
- Create plumper skin, thus minimizing signs of aging.
- Boost the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in the skin, which deteriorates from daily stressors, like UV rays and pollution.
Stop Wrinkles Dead in Their Tracks
People who want brighter, more youthful-looking skin are always on the hunt for high-quality anti-aging products to add to their skincare routine. While no product can reverse the hands of time, some can get extremely close. Honest skincare companies know this can only be achieved realistically, with ingredients that have been tested and proven to work.
We think you’ll appreciate our 3X Anti-Aging Boost face cream for this exact reason. Not only does it contain hyaluronic acid, but we’ve combined glycerin and Matrixyl 3000 as the other active ingredients.
Glycerin: We love glycerin because it draws moisture from the lowest layers of the skin and pulls it up to the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin). The added moisture plumps the skin and helps reduce lines and wrinkles. As a result, we added glycerin to our anti-aging formula to work synergistically with hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl 3000.
Matrixyl 3000: Doesn’t it sound like the latest installment of a three-part sci-fi movie? You’re probably thinking ‘no way is this natural.’ True, Matrixyl 3000 was made in a lab but it is designed to mimic naturally occurring characteristics in our bodies. Not only is it backed by science but it is also approved by dermatologists. It works by telling the skin to replace lost collagen to restore (and maintain) a youthful appearance.
Along with hyaluronic acid, these ingredients work to achieve a formula we’re proud to say reduces wrinkles, brightens the skin’s complexion, and enhances its elasticity.
It’s important to look for products that contain science-backed ingredients. When applied consistently, these skincare products can achieve astonishing results.
