What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by our own skin cells, but as we age, combined with our stressed lifestyle and other external factors. It helps the skin to retain moisture and also has anti-oxidant properties.
Why is HLA acid good for your skin?
Collagen keeps the skin moist and plump, and hyaluronic acid, also known as HLA acid, helps in collagen regeneration.
But it’s not just hydration. Because it also acts as an anti-oxidant, it can protect you from the sun and pollution.
So because of the combined advantage of environmental protection and hydration, the skin looks plump and radiant, and because of that, fine lines and wrinkles are also not so easily seen.
Is hyaluronic acid good for your your skin type?
HLA acid is suitable and good for all skin types. It’s perfect for both dry skin and aging skin, but also great for oily skin as it can offer hydration without any greasiness. Your skin will still keep feeling fresh, radiant, and bright.
It is also recommended for sensitive skin as the added hydration softly protects the skin.
Is it safe to apply hyaluronic acid externally?
As HLA acid is produced naturally in the body, it is perfectly safe for your body, and no negative side effects have been seen to applying it externally.
Even though it’s an acid, it doesn’t exfoliate the skin. Its key purpose is hydration, and the skin looking younger is an added benefit.
