What is the Most Hydrating Ingredient in Skin Care Right Now?

We are calling it the “it ingredient” with the science to back it up. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a polysaccharide, a form of sugar that plays a vital role in our bodies. It cushions joints, keeps muscles limber and even helps us see. But, its biggest job is in the skin: HA can attract and hold mega amounts of moisture, it’s a critical factor in maintaining hydration levels. Between the ages of 40 and 50, your skin has lost as much as half of the HA it had at age 20. Daily environmental stressors like  UV  rays  and pollution  along with the normal aging process, cause skin to lose its capacity to produce its own HA, leading to dry skin with a rougher texture, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Our bodies are constantly in a battle to stay hydrated, so a hyaluronic acid– rich skin-care regimen is really beneficial like Neocutis Hyallis Hydrating Serum from Defy Nature in New London.

Skin Care experts have had a long-term love affair with HA, adding it to creams, serums and more to pull moisture from the atmosphere and trap it in the skin to hydrate it, giving it a plumper look.. And with the launch of the first HA Injectable in 2003, doctors have been able to shoot it into achy joints to juice them up, as well as place it in the dermis to turn back the clock. Denser HA fillers, such as Restylane Lyft and Juvederm Voluma, placed above the cheekbone can help create the appearance of a moderately lifted face, while a softer HA filler such as Restylane Silk can be used to smooth etched-in wrinkles.

According to the The Aesthetic Society, more than 720,000 HA filler treatments were performed in the United States last year alone, and the number continues to grow.
