Ugh. Anti aging. We love beauty products, but the whole idea of starting the anti aging process now that we are in our late twenties is a little daunting. We want to age gracefully and accept whatever wrinkles come, but until then, lets do everything we can to safely preserve our young skin (hint: sunscreen EVERY day!) One great way to add an element of anti aging into your routine without using harsh, harmful chemicals is to use hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hydraulic acid naturally occurs in our bodies to lubricate our joints and eyes. It is a type of natural moisturizer produced by the body to help our joints stay running smoothly, so why wouldn't it help skin stay smooth as well? It is also commonly used to treat minor burns and skin irritations.
Does it Work?
This gel substance moisturizes skin and temporarily fills in wrinkles. Some estimates say that an application of hyaluronic acid will reduce the appearance of wrinkles for months. It is also the ingredient used in many cosmetic injectables. Specifically, it is commonly used to plump lips! This may sound scary, but it is a totally safe ingredient, with a rating of 0 (no hazard) from the EWG SkinDeep Database.
