All you need to know about hyaluronic acid and its benefits for skin

Without moisture, the skin appears dry – and dry skin ages you the fastest. Hyaluronic acid benefits the skin with its moisturizing effect, smoothing wrinkles and keeping it supple. Find out how different forms of hyaluronic acid boost a healthy complexion and why you should integrate the skin care superstar into your daily routine.

What is hyaluronic acid?

One of the best skin care substances on the market? Hyaluronic acid has truly earned this title due to its incredible benefits for the skin. The naturally-occurring substance is produced by your body itself and is found primarily in the connective tissue, skin and bones. There, it works continuously to ensure suppleness and freshness thanks to its intensive moisturizing effect.

Hyaluronic acid gives you a firm complexion by relying on its impressive ability to replenish a lot of moisture. In fact, just one gram of hyaluronic acid can bind six liters of water. That’s good news for your skin: Elasticity and natural resilience are maintained and you can rock a youthful, smooth complexion. But how exactly does hyaluronic acid work its magic on your skin?

Hyaluronic acid: Which benefits does it provide for the skin?

When it comes to moisturizers, hardly any other ingredient can stand a chance against hyaluronic acid. The cosmetics industry loves hyaluronic acid for its two most impressive benefits: The water-binding capacity and its rejuvenating effect. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly softened when hyaluronic acid is applied regularly.

As one of the most well-known glycosaminoglycans of the skin, hyaluronic acid increases the elasticity of the tissues and, in a way, serves as a biological lubricant. It protects your skin from drying out, stimulates it to renew itself and thus restores its inner balance. The upper layers of the skin are also regenerated – the skin appears noticeably smoother, radiant and feels soft to the touch.

What is the link between hyaluronic acid and anti-aging?

In the context of aging, the moisture-binding property of hyaluronic acid benefits skin in a crucial way. When you’re young, there’s enough hyaluronic acid in your skin to maintain a balanced moisture level. The problem: As you age, your body produces less and less of the moisturizer on its own. By the age of 40, hyaluronic acid production is already reduced by 40%. As a result, your skin loses elasticity, tone and becomes more prone to dryness.

In addition to the natural aging process, environmental influences can lead to your skin having to do without enough hyaluronic acid. You probably already know how important it is for a healthy skin appearance to avoid unprotected sun exposure. To protect yourself from premature aging caused by sun damage, use a moisturizer with SPF every single day.

If you want to do even more for healthy aging and preserve the firmness and suppleness of your skin as long as possible, cosmetic products with hyaluronic acid can help. Especially when incorporated into a complete anti-aging routine, the active ingredient successfully combats signs of aging.

Does every form of hyaluronic acid have the same benefits?

You’ve probably noticed that more and more skin care products are enriched with hyaluronic acid. Contrary to many trendy ingredients, hyaluronic acid is well researched and its benefits scientifically proven. But not all forms of hyaluronic acid are the same – there are significant differences in quality. While long-chain forms of hyaluronic acid smooth the top layer of skin, short-chain forms are small enough to penetrate the underlying layers of skin and restore intensive moisture. They can plump up the skin deep from the inside and unfold their firming effect.

Hyalo-Oligo is an oligomer hyaluronic acid with a nano-molecule size of about 1 nm. As the smallest form of hyaluronic acid, Hyalo-Oligo penetrates into the deepest layers of the skin – for intensive moisture that lasts up to three days.

How does hyaluronic acid tackle skin concerns like acne?

Hyaluronic acid and its benefits are particularly cherished in the field of anti-aging, but in principle the active ingredient is recommended for all skin types and age groups. Because it is well tolerated and known for its regenerative effect, it also nurtures stressed skin back to health.

This makes hyaluronic acid especially interesting for people whose skin has special needs. Whether you have sensitive, redness-prone skin or are an acne sufferer, you don’t need to worry that hyaluronic acid will worsen your skin concerns. On the contrary: In combination with other skin-soothing ingredients, the moisturizer can soften imperfections when added to creams and serums and beautify the skin’s appearance in the long term.
