Here are some crucial facts about hyaluronic acid, a versatile substance naturally produced by our bodies, that is one of the active ingredients in our ChitoCare beauty Anti-Aging Repair Serum, that promotes skin health, deep hydration and a glowing, dewy complexion.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Here at ChitoCare beauty, we believe healthy skin can be a source of empowerment. To figure out what it needs to remain healthy, we must first know what elements work together to make it function properly. One of those elements is hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gel-like substance naturally produced by our body. It is an important water-binding structural component of our skin’s two top protective layers, the skin epidermis and dermis. One of its most crucial functions is that it provides both biochemical and structural support for surrounding cells and increases water content in our skin.
It does this by attracting water to regain volume and rebuild lost structure. It helps keep our eyes moist and lubricates joints, it decreases inflammation, helps with wound healing and, on a cellular level, it protects cells from premature aging, keeping our skin healthy and supple by maintaining much-needed moisture.
Why is Hyaluronic Acid Important?
Hyaluronic acid has both direct and long-term positive effects. It is essential for anyone wanting to take care of their skin. In addition, it is crucial in maintaining a healthy and strong body by nourishing us from the inside.
About half of our body’s hyaluronic acid supplies exist in our skin, where it binds with water to retain moisture. However, as we age, the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid slowly drops, making our skin more vulnerable to external and environmental factors, such as sun burn, UV light, blue light, pollution and other damaging elements that can further deplete our natural hyaluronic acid supplies. This means that, the older we get, the more we need to replenish these supplies ourselves. You can effectively treat your skin by replenishing its hyaluronic acid reservoirs with the ChitoCare beauty Anti-Aging Repair Serum, that is excellent for reducing wrinkles, puffiness and redness while attracting moisture and offering your skin a hydrated, glowing look.
Skin hydration is crucial for cell regeneration, and skincare products and supplements containing hyaluronic acid can help retain moisture and treat dry skin. Hydrated skin means wrinkles and fine lines become less apparent, while studies have shown that supplementary hyaluronic acid leads to smoother, firmer skin. When used correctly, hyaluronic acid can help reduce redness, soothe dry, rough or flaky skin, and treat skin conditions such as dermatitis. Treat your skin to the luscious ChitoCare beauty Face Cream, that supports the skin’s natural repair process and protects it from harmful external elements while increasing hydration, softness and elasticity.
Where Can Hyaluronic Acid Be Found?
Hyaluronic acid can be found as an active ingredient in almost every skin care product, including serums, cleansers, moisturizers, lotions, face masks, creams and more. It can also be found in ingestible supplements, most often capsules filled with the active ingredient.
It is important to use skin care products that contain hyaluronic acid that are free of fragrances, preservatives and other harmful chemicals that could damage your skin. One of the wonderful things about hyaluronic acid is that is works for all skin types, even sensitive skin or skin that is prone to eczema, breakouts or irregularities.
It works wonders on more mature skin types that need supplementary hydration and moisture due to natural aging, but it can also be used by young people who want to get into a healthy skin care routine. It is ideal for adventurous outdoor types, who can often be exposed to the sun or harsh weather conditions and who want to avoid dryness and roughness or want to treat dehydrated or sunburned skin. It can even be used while pregnant or nursing. No matter your skin type, you can pamper yourself with our ChitoCare beauty Serum Mask, perfect for both your face and body. You will immediately feel your skin firmer, smoother and younger-looking.
In the wild, hyaluronic acid can be found in oranges, almonds, sweet potatoes, kale, nuts, seeds and other foods. Modern life means sticking to a healthy diet can oftentimes be challenging, so it is important to provide our body with nutrients that boost its natural production of hyaluronic acid. When ingested, it can greatly relieve dry or scratchy eyes, soothe acid reflux symptoms, treat osteoarthritis, reduce joint pain, and preserve bone strength. Food supplements containing hyaluronic acid are readily available on the market with proven effectiveness and can be taken safely.
Furthermore, studies have found that taking hyaluronic acid supplements can lead to significantly improved skin health, including reduced wrinkles, firmer skin, and a youthful glow. After all, we are what we eat and skin health is directly related to not only what we put on our skin, but also what we put inside our bodies. Complement your skin care routine with ChitoCare beauty Hair, Skin & Nails to supply your body with nutrients that will help keep your skin younger, your hair thicker and your nails and bones stronger.
What Are the Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid?Hyaluronic acid has many proven benefits for humans. Since it exists naturally in our body, making sure we maintain adequate levels of hyaluronic acid will lead to better overall health. Some of the positive effects of using or ingesting hyaluronic acid include:
- promoting healthier, more supple skin
- powerful healing properties
- preserving bone strength
- relieving joint pain
- retaining moisture
Hyaluronic acid is famously known for alleviating dry skin by offering intense moisturization. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can speed up the skin’s natural healing process. It is excellent for maintaining elasticity in the skin, reducing acne-related scars, and offering the skin a vibrant, dewy and youthful complexion. It strengthens our skin’s ability to act as a natural barrier, providing firmness and making it less prone to wrinkles, dryness, dullness and other signs of aging.
Its ability to promote healing also makes hyaluronic acid effective in treating skin wounds. As its small molecules penetrate the skin, it replenishes moisture that is necessary for cell renewal and hence skin healing. It regulates inflammation levels and tells your body to initiate the healing process in the damaged area. Help wound healing with ChitoCare medical Healing Spray, a miraculous medical device containing chitosan, that relieves soreness, redness, itching and skin inflammation.
