Naturally found in the body, hyaluronic acid secures moisture and creates fullness—youthful skin naturally contains high levels of hyaluronic acid. As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health with its unique ability to hold in moisture. It can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity—relative to the season and the climate. Because hyaluronic acid adds moisture to the skin, and helps it retain that moisture, from skin’s uppermost layers down to its dermis layer, it can have the effect of temporarily plumping wrinkles and fine lines.
