Welcome back to Ingredient 101 where we break down skincare products, ingredient by ingredient. Today, we’re talking about the infamous Hyaluronic Acid aka HA!
Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes.
HA helps the skin barrier retain moisture and stay wrinkle-free! As it ages, the skin’s natural HA production decreases so, naturally, the ingredient became such a go-to in skincare products.
It is simply amazing! An active ingredient that helps your skin at a cellular level, maintaining a plump, healthy, and hydrated complexion. What more can a girl ask for?
