Both Summer AND winter can take a heavy toll on our skin, so what can you do on a daily basis to negate the effects the elements? How can we turn back the clock to the younger years and increase the "cushioning or plumpness" in our skin? Read on.....
Let us introduce you to Hyaluronic Acid:
Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful humectant (moisture binding) gel-like polysaccharide that holds over 1000 times it's weight in water. It is found abundantly in younger skin (in large amounts, in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin). That is why toddlers or infants have that pudgy "baby face", but as time goes on, our face thins, and becomes more raisin-like. Skin starts losing hyaluronic acid as early as age 18, but wrinkles and other skin damage from hyaluronic acid loss don't generally show up until the late 30s or early 40s.
Applied topically, it increases hydration, improves elasticity and also reverses free radical damage, so it may have some benefit in protecting from UV damage. Bonus; Hyaluronic acid is one ingredient that works for every skin type, even oily skin and acne can benefit.
In a study published in the 2014 Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, participants using products with hyaluronic acid reported more voluminous-looking cheeks and lips, as well as reduced appearance of sagging skin.
