Hyaluronic acid: what is it, what does it do, where is it found?

Ácido hialurónico: o que é, o que faz, onde se encontra?

With the lives we lead today, there are two constant skin concerns, regardless of age:

  • Dehydration;
  • And premature aging of the skin.

In the world of skin care, new trends appear every year when it comes to ingredients, which come and go every year. Hyaluronic acid is one of the ingredients that is not just a fad and its presence remains constant in the best cosmetic formulas. It has soothing, moisturizing and antioxidant properties that are great for all skin types, even rosacea-prone and eczema-prone skin and even oily, combination or acne-prone skin.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance, which is produced by our body, and which has the ability to attract and retain up to 1000 times its own weight in water. That is, it is miraculous in the treatment of skin dehydration and filling small wrinkles and fine lines, keeping the skin young and glowing.

But if Hyaluronic Acid is produced by my body, then I don't need to apply it?

Right and wrong. As we age, our bodies produce less and less of this miraculous anti-aging molecule. Hence the importance of reinforcing its concentration on our skin, using creams, serums and toners that contain natural hyaluronic acid. And this reduction in hyaluronic acid production starts right after adolescence.

How can I add Hyaluronic Acid to my routine?

Now that you know all the benefits of hyaluronic acid, all you need to know is how you can add this ingredient to your routine. Here are some suggestions for natural, organic and non-animal-tested products that contain this molecule, so you can try:
