How Hyaluronic Acid Can Help Your Skin
Acids are a complex category of substances that skin care companies use routinely in products. You’re most likely familiar with salicylic and glycolic acids simply because they tend to enjoy prominent placement on the labels of cleansing products. These hydroxy acids are quite useful in the traditional role of an acid for dissolving away particular substances. Not all the acids that OROGOLD and other companies use are true to this pattern though. Hyaluronic acid enjoys a distinct popularity in skin care thanks to a very different set of properties. Instead of eating away at oils and grime, hyaluronic acid is capable of absorbing, storing, and releasing large quantities of moisture. Its status as one of the better moisturizers available means it can help your skin in a variety of ways.
As with many moisturizers, hyaluronic acid helps keep the skin’s natural defenses intact. The moisture offers a revitalizing touch to the skin that is particularly useful for combating issues resulting from sun damage. Many of these are characterized by dry, flaking skin. You can typically recover from the flaking, but extensive sun damage can potentially alter your skin’s behavior permanently. The resulting dry patches are inherently susceptible to further damage from the sun thanks to the damage. A product using hyaluronic acid is capable of offering a high degree of moisturizing to such areas that allows them to behave as they did before the damage. For people without damage, this extra moisture fortifies the skin against such damage by providing moisture across the skin’s layers.
Aging causes many changes to our skin. One of the primary components of these changes is a gradual loss of moisture in the skin. This leads to decreasing firmness and gentleness to the touch. An infant’s skin is as soft as it is thanks, in part, to the tremendous amount of moisture that the skin retains. Skin care companies may not be able to offer a means to return your skin to precisely that state, but products containing hyaluronic acid are one of the best ways to ensure your skin is as soft as possible. As used in skin care, the acid may not have the dissolving properties common to an acid, but its classification does allow it to penetrate into the skin with a high degree of effectiveness. This helps distribute moisture evenly throughout the skin and can reduce some signs of aging such as fine lines or full wrinkles. The moisture offers a slight firmness to the skin. We recommend using a product that includes both vitamin C or E alongside the hyaluronic acid to offer collagen restoring capabilities alongside the moisture.
One of the best parts about hyaluronic acid is that a form of it naturally occurs in your skin. This makes the ingredient universally useful. All skin types are capable of using it without any real worries. The main things to consider is what form the product you’re using it in comes in. A good lotion will work well for oily skin, but a heavy cream will work well for someone with dry skin. This flexibility ensures the ingredient is far more useful than some other acids used in skin care. Another benefit to utilizing products based around hyaluronic acid is that its natural occurrence in the body means that such products are even usable throughout pregnancy without any real concerns. You should double-check labels for any product specific warnings, but hyaluronic acid is generally regarded as safe.
Hyaluronic acid is a valued ingredient in skin care. It is flexible and universally useful nature as an ingredient means it finds its way into many products. This works out well thanks to the aid it is capable of providing. While it is highly useful on its own, OROGOLD recommends finding products that utilize it alongside other ingredients to make the most of all of hyaluronic acid’s aspects. This will let you do all that you can to refine and protect your beautiful skin.
