Moisturize and Help Soften and Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles For Younger Looking Skin
Nicknamed "Nature's Sponge" or "Moisture Magnet," hyaluronic acid, hydrates skin in a way that no other ingredient can and is a recent addition to the list of exceptional skin care ingredients. This remarkable molecule earned these nicknames for its amazing ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid (HA), also called Hyaluronan, plays an essential role in hydrating our tissues, especially the skin. Now available in moisturizing crèmes, hyaluronic acid skincare delivers just what it promises: the hydra-power of nature.
Found in the eyes, joints, connective tissue, and skin, hyaluronic acid performs many crucial functions in the body. In the joints, hyaluronic acid is present in cartilage and synovial fluid, acting as both a lubricant and shock absorber. In the skin, hyaluronic acid is present in large quantities in the extracellular matrix (the space between the cells is filled with collagen, elastin, water, hyaluronic acid, and other components). Together, collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid form the scaffolding of the skin, providing structure, texture and tone. Because of its remarkable ability to attract and bind water molecules, hyaluronic acid helps maintain the collagen fibers in the skin, keeping collagen hydrated and healthy. Properly hydrated, healthy collagen means hydrated, plump youthful looking skin.
Although hyaluronic acid only recently attracted public attention, the medical community began taking advantage of this exceptional molecule years ago. Doctors use hyaluronic acid injections to treat osteoarthritis of the knee and hyaluronic acid solutions during ophthalmic surgery. Just as collagen injections fill wrinkles and plump up skin, hyaluronic acid injections are also an approved wrinkle treatment. Recent research focuses on the role of hyaluronic acid in wound repair, and several studies have now shown that topical application of hyaluronic acid accelerates healing and is associated with reduced scarring. Another study demonstrated that applying a hyaluronic acid solution to tissues before surgery decreased the occurrence of post-surgical tissue adhesion. Doctors are also using topical hyaluronic acid as a vehicle to deliver drugs to treat actinic keratoses, small, precancerous, rough spots on the skin caused by overexposure to the sun. Incredible, isn't it? One molecule has so many beneficial uses, and as the research continues, many more are sure to be discovered.
Hyaluronic acid is essential for skin health, structure and hydration. Various oral HA supplements for skin and joint health are available as well as skin care products containing hyaluronic acid. Moisturizing hyaluronic acid crèmes lock moisture into the skin, hydrating the skin and protecting it from water loss. The controversy surrounding hyaluronic acid is whether or not the skin absorbs topically applied hyaluronic acid; the answer remains unclear. Hyaluronic acid is a fairly large molecule suggesting that it cannot penetrate the outer layer of skin. However, a 1999 study conducted in Australia demonstrated that topically applied HA penetrates both the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) and the dermis. Only further research can definitely answer the question, but on the skin or in the skin, hyaluronic acid restores moisture levels and radiance to skin.
We have seen the results: hyaluronic acid delivers the ultimate moisturizing power of nature. Topically applied HA has the amazing ability to bind moisture to tissue to help soften, smooth away ne lines and wrinkles and rehydrate for more youthful-looking skin. When choosing products containing hyaluronic acid, make sure you know the source of the HA. Much of the commercially available hyaluronic acid comes from rooster combs or other animal byproducts. For people concerned with hyaluronic acid derived from animal sources there is a safe and effective alternative called Actimoist Bio - 2, a form of hyaluronic acid produced by bacterial fermentation. Lastly, hyaluronic acid may be listed in cosmetic ingredient lists by its chemical name: Sodium Hyaluronate.
