The Hype Around Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid may feature as a hero ingredient in your favourite skincare products but how about in your diet?
At Me Today, hyaluronic acid is our everyday and one of our absolute favourite hydrating ingredients. You’ll find hyaluronic acid throughout our skincare products (we love Bounce B5 Serum) and now our supplements for a whole-body, Skin&Within approach to living your best life. So, let’s talk about the hype around hyaluronic acid.
Your body naturally produces plenty of hyaluronic acid, or HA for short, where it plays a role in your normal skin health, wound healing and even in cushioning your joints. At a molecular level, hyaluronic acid is a simple chain of sugar molecules, or glycosaminoglycans, with gel-like properties but it acts as a super hydrator, holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water! With that, it’s no surprise that HA is a key component of your skin’s structure, responsible for giving you a bouncy, hydrated glow.
As a dietary supplement, hyaluronic acid has been shown to hydrate dry skin from within, improving skin elasticity, smoothing out rough patches, and even helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Used topically, hyaluronic acid acts as a humectant, which means it helps draw moisture into your skin from the environment, leaving your skin feeling hydrated, bouncy and oh so smooth.
We say, it makes sense to pair both dietary hyaluronic acid and a topical moisturiser or serum rich in hyaluronic acid to unlock the true potential of Skin&Within beauty and wellness! Unlocking your best tomorrow.®
