What is hyaluronic acid? What are the different types of hyaluronic acids? What differences depending on their molecular weight? To have an overview of this fabulous active naturally present in the skin and very used in cosmetology, go to this full article.

In this post, we detail 10 benefits of hyaluronic acid for skin and health.

Benefit n°1: an anti-wrinkle action

Hyaluronic acid is known for its anti-aging effect thanks to its strong hydrating power and its ability to retain water on the surface of the skin. It minimizes the appearance of wrinkles already installed by combining intercellular spaces and prevents the appearance of new wrinkles.

Benefit n°2: an antioxidant action

Hyaluronic acid contributes to a bright and bright complexion thanks to its anti-radical role.

Benefit n°3: a healing action

Hyaluronic acid facilitates the repair and healing of the skin, mainly on superficial injuries: skin irritation, redness, light burns, etc. It is found in many formulations that promote the healing process.

Benefits n°4: an effect on skin tonicity

Hyaluronic acid is recognized for its effects on firmness and suppleness of the skin. In particular, it helps to combat ptosis (cutaneous release) and loss of elasticity.

Benefit #5: help to maintain hydration

Hyaluronic acid has hygroscopic properties, that is, it has the ability to absorb almost 1000 times its water weight! This role of molecular sponge helps to maintain skin hydration by holding water in the skin tissues.

Benefit n°6: a protective action

Hyaluronic acid also plays a barrier role against external aggression thanks to the non-occlusive protective film that it forms on the surface of the skin: sun rays, pollution, etc.

Benefit n°7: a smoothing action

Hyaluronic acid has the ability to fill the interstices present between cells. This helps to bring the skin a rebound, soft and smooth look. The nasogenian furrows or folds on the lip side are smoothed, and their appearance is minimized.

Benefit #8: a stimulator of collagen production

Like hyaluronic acid, collagen has a key role in the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Several studies show that these two ingredients together have a decoupled efficiency!

Benefits #9: UV protection

By strengthening the hydrolipidic film of the skin, it protects it from ultraviolet rays. Of course, this does not replace the application of an effective sunscreen!

Benefit #10: good for joints

Hyaluronic acid has beneficial actions on cartilage and joints. It is used against osteoarthritis.
