Hyaluronic Acid // The Secret to Youthful Skin

There are so many products out in the market promising youthful looking skin. Not all are created equal. One of my favorite if not by far the best ingredient for beautiful youthful looking skin is hyaluronic acid. Hyla, what? HA is a natural substance that our bodies naturally contain. When we were born our bodies contained significant amounts of hyaluronic acid; thats one reason why babies and children have perfect skin. As we get older the amount of HA in our bodies starts to drop usually around the time we are 18-20 years old, then after 40 HA really starts to decline at a faster rate. Once this happens skin starts to sag, fine lines and wrinkles and other aging skin concerns start popping up. So ladies, its really never too early to start addressing skin health for life! Hyaluronic Acid is the secret key to youthful skin due to its properties of attracting and binding water within the cells of the skin and tissues. It literally acts like a sponge to retain supple, firm skin tone and a youthful glow. And check out this fact: HA can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water! There is no other ingredient or substance other than HA that can do this! And what I love about HA is any skin type can utilize its amazing benefits. It does not matter if you have young or aging skin, acne, dry, sensitive, oily or normal skin! It will go to work for you instantly. As the weather turns colder and drier it is so crucial to help your skin retain its moisture. I am a huge fan of HA and have used several different products containing this secret ingredient. Hyaluronic acid comes in several forms: serums, toners, moisturizers or cremes and supplements. And here's a tip: After you've applied your makeup, get out your HA toner and spritz it over your face, neck and decollate and this will not only set your makeup, but it will give your skin an added boost of moisture. Carry it in your bag and spritz throughout the day to feel refreshed and invigorated. Give your skin some love and add hylauronic acid into your skin care regimen!
