Ingredient Spotlight: Hyaluronic Acid

As the winter season continues, you may find your skin drier than usual. It’s essential to change your skincare routine for colder temperatures to accommodate for dryness. After all, keeping your skin’s barrier hydrated and protected during the winter is crucial. To boost overall hydration, you need vital ingredients as staples in your winter skincare routine. One of those ingredients is hyaluronic acid. Maybe you’ve heard of it, or perhaps you haven’t – we’ve got you covered. Read on as we spill all the deets about this ingredient.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the human body. Its purpose is to trap water inside tissue cells to help your skin maintain long-term hydration throughout the day. Hyaluronic acid is found in several body areas, including around the eyes, joints, and skin barrier. Hydration is vital to all these body areas so they stay lubricated for movement. Therefore, in the winter months, hyaluronic acid plays the role of BFF for many people suffering from dry skin.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

As we age, our bodies stop producing as much hyaluronic acid, and dehydrated skin can lead to various skin problems, such as wrinkles and fine lines. To keep your skin moisturized, you should incorporate hyaluronic acid in your everyday skincare routine. Some of the most significant benefits of consistent use of hyaluronic acid include:
  • Hydrates and plumps dry, broken skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lubricates joints that cause aches and pains
  • Helps to eliminate dry eyes and discomfort
