What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Also known as hyaluronan is a clear gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. It’s main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist.
Hyaluronic acid has a variety of uses. Many people take it as a supplement, but it is also used in topical serums, eye drops, and injections.
As we get older we loose the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid in our bodies thus the skin appears less plump and moist.
With age we also loose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid therefore as we get older our skin becomes wrinkly.
