Hyaluronic Acid: what is it and why do we need it in our skincare routine?Posted by Milanesi Skincare Mapskin SRL on
More and more frequently, in cosmetics, we hear about hyaluronic acid.
What exactly is it?
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule of the human connective tissues that gives the skin elastic properties, resistance and maintenance of its shape.
It is particularly renowned for its ability to retain moisture - it can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water - for its ability to instantly plump the skin and reduce wrinkles. Furthermore, hyaluronic acid has the ability to strengthen the outermost layer of the dermis and create a defensive barrier; it helps the skin to protect itself from damage from the sun's rays, inflammation and superficial wounds.
Unfortunately, with time, the amount of hyaluronic acid that our body naturally produces gradually decreases. Precisely for this reason, the use of products containing hyaluronic acid becomes an essential step in our beauty routine.
Who is it suitable for?
Hyaluronic acid is recommended for most skin types. Thanks to its light, gel-like texture, it is ideal for oily skin, as it hydrates without clogging the pores, and for dry skin, as it increases the skin's moisture level. It is also gentle enough for sensitive skin, leaving it soft and toned. It is both perfect as an instant boost to plump the face or as a daily treatment.
