What is Hyaluronic Acid and Why is it the Latest Skin Care Buzz Word?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

According to my dermatologist, hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin.

It helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear plumper and dewier.

In layman’s terms, it’s an ingredient that our body already produces—and a must-have to keep mature skin looking hydrated. 

Why is it the Latest Skincare Buzz Word?

Supplementing hyaluronic acid through moisturizers and serums can help by creating a barrier that retains water in the skin.
