The Scoop on Hyaluronic Acid
It’s an ingredient that’s been getting a lot of buzz lately, but what exactly is hyaluronic acid (HA), and how does it affect your skin?
In short, it’s nature’s “moisture magnet.” More specifically, it’s a molecule found naturally in your body—in the skin, connective tissues, and eyes. It’s clear and gel-like, with the primary function of retaining water and keeping tissues hydrated. While the word “acid” might sound scary and harsh, the reality is quite the opposite. It’s actually super-soothing and ultra-hydrating.
