Is Hyaluronic Acid an Actual Acid?

Is Hyaluronic Acid an Actual Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is an amazing natural active ingredient that has huge benefits for skin in terms of hydrating and plumping the complexion. We absolutely love it at Nakin and this is why we use it so much in our Anti-Ageing Face Products. Probably the only thing that we do not like about hyaluronic acid is its name, as it sounds pretty scary. When we hear the word acid, we think of something pretty strong and corrosive, but this is absolutely not the case as it is a lovely caring substance for skin, and it actually found naturally in our tissues.

The type of hyaluronic acid that we use in our anti-ageing skincare is Sodium Hyaluronate, which is the best for skincare products as it has a low molecular weight so can go really deeper into the skin cells, plus it does not have a low ph. It is able to give the face and neck an intense boost of hydration which is very hard to rival.

We love to use hyaluronic acid in skincare for its kind and caring anti-ageing ability. It appears in the products listed below which all have hydration benefits.

Hyaluronic acid is revered for its remarkable ability to retain moisture; a single gram can hold up to six litres of water. This extraordinary hydrating property makes it a skincare superstar, particularly beneficial for the delicate skin on the face and neck. It helps to keep the skin plump, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promotes a youthful radiance. Hyaluronic acid achieves this by drawing moisture from the environment into the skin, providing lasting hydration and enhancing the skin’s overall texture and appearance.

Hyaluronic acid is not only known for its hydrating properties, but also for its anti-aging benefits. As we age, our skin loses moisture and becomes less plump, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid helps to combat this by replenishing the skin with much-needed hydration, leading to a more youthful and radiant complexion. Hyaluronic acid is also a powerful antioxidant, protecting the skin from environmental stressors that can contribute to premature aging.

In addition to its hydrating and anti-aging properties, hyaluronic acid has also been found to have wound-healing capabilities. It works by promoting collagen production and increasing cell turnover, which can help to heal and repair damaged skin. This makes it a valuable ingredient in skincare products for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin, as it can help to calm inflammation and speed up the healing process.

Interestingly as we said earlier, hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our bodies, specifically in our joints and eyes. However, as we age, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to dry and dehydrated skin. This is why incorporating hyaluronic acid into our skincare routine is crucial in maintaining a healthy and youthful complexion.
