What is hyaluronic acid?

16 Feb 2022

Hyaluronic acid is sugar molecules that exist as a completely natural part of the body. These molecules bind moisture and help keep the skin plump and fresh. However, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases with age. In fact, it is estimated that the average adult has only 1/20 the amount of hyaluronic acid that an infant has. This is because our hyaluronic level in our skin decreases as we age, and this means that fine lines, wrinkles and also pigment changes can occur in several places on the face and body. Many also experience dry and thin skin without the natural glow they remembered from their youth.

It is somewhat popular to say that hyaluronic acid is the skin's very own anti-aging product. Hyaluronic acid can bind moisture incredibly effectively to the skin, producing some amazing results. In fact, hyaluronic acid can bind up to 1000 times its own weight. If the body no longer produces the same amounts of hyaluronic, the result is that the skin will lack moisture and appear tired and dry.

Fortunately, today there is an option to replace the lack of hyaluronic production. This can be done, among other things, through a number of nutritional supplements and skin care products that contain precisely hyaluronic. But hyaluron is also found in both make-up and in tablet form and can thus be used both externally and internally.

How does hyaluronic acid work?

Since hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule, it works by binding the fluid in our body, and this is what contributes to well-moisturized skin and the supple and elastic appearance we all strive for. In other words, it provides moisture, fullness and elasticity to the skin, and can also work for you with sensitive skin.

In addition, hyaluronic acid can help minimize unevenness in the skin and increase collagen production in the skin. It is said that one gram of hyaluronic acid can bind a whole liter of water and therefore it is not surprising that this substance is considered a quite unique anti-aging treatment for tired and dry skin.

Positive characteristics

In modern times, hyaluronic acid has been hailed as one of the biggest breakthroughs in the beauty industry. This is because it has a number of positive properties in a wide range of areas. This includes, among other things, a better mobility of joints as well as a more beautiful and supple skin. There are many more benefits of hyaluronic acid than just that:

  • Increases the skin's ability to absorb moisture
  • Increases the natural production of collagen
  • Keeps the skin fresh, flexible and resistant
  • Has an anti-inflammatory effect
  • Has a healing effect on tears and small wounds
  • Strengthens the skin after sun damage
  • Protects joints, nerves and connective tissue and ensures increased mobility

All these properties help ensure that your skin will stay young for as long as possible.

Are there side effects to hyaluronic acid?

Since hyaluronic acid occurs completely naturally in the body, there is therefore no need to be nervous about using the creams, masks and various serums that contain hyaluronic acid. You can also safely enjoy the shots that contain these beneficial sugar molecules. On the contrary, there is every reason to do so.

As with so many other products, it is important to use hyaluronic acid wisely. This means use it with care and follow the applicable instructions.

The only situation where certain side effects may occur in connection with hyaluronic acid is if it is injected as a so-called filler (1), which aims to fill and shape areas typically on the face. In rare cases, situations can arise where there is a lot of swelling and redness and it can also cause itching for a short period. Most of the time, however, there is a very small risk of this, and the side effects usually disappear within a day or two.

Beauty care with hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid's ability to influence the skin's natural collagen production has long been used by the beauty industry. Thus, today there is a wide range of products with a targeted hyaluronic acid content, where the purpose is to improve the skin's general moisture level and general structure. And precisely by using beauty care products with hyaluronic acid, it will be possible to see a marked difference and a clear effect.

Hyaluronic acid is found in a wide range of skin care products. This applies from eye creams to day and night creams. Furthermore, it is also found in selected make-up where extra caring or improving properties are desired. It can be both in foundation, lipsticks and blush, which thereby adds an extra function.

It may be worth considering such products over the more traditional ones precisely because it can have a huge effect on the skin. Even if the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases with age, it does no harm to consider an extra supply of hyaluronic acid already at an early age, because regardless of whether you are 17 or 57, whether you have dry, sensitive, oily or normal skin, moisture is essential for good and healthy skin.

Hyaluronic acid serum 

Hyaluronic acid serum consists of a so-called lipid-soluble base, which makes it possible for the ingredients to penetrate completely into the deeper layers of the skin, as opposed to simply laying down as a surface on top of the upper layers of the skin, where it has no major effect. These properties mean that such a serum is more effective than various creams, but that it is precisely the combination of different hyaluronic acid products that can ensure you the very best result.

Hyaluronic acid serum is therefore an important part of daily skin care, which in addition to caring for the skin also helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and the formation of collagen. There is a large selection of serums with hyaluronic acid that, with regular use, can ensure you very good results.


Hyaluronic acid for medical use

Hyaluronic acid is mainly used in beauty care, where it is included in a number of products in the fight against dull and tired skin (for example, cream). But it can also be advantageously used for medical use precisely because of its ability to bind liquid. Thus, today it is possible to find hyaluronic acid in, among other things, eye drops for dry eyes. But hyaluronic acid can do more than that. That is why it is also used today in connection with cosmetic surgical interventions, such as when a little extra volume is needed in the lips - so-called fillers.

But one is cosmetic procedures. Another is in connection with illness such as various rheumatic diseases. Here, the joints can be so afflicted by arthritis that it is beneficial to use hyaluronic acid for treatment. And with good success. It is done by injecting hyaluronic acid over weeks or months for the desired effect. This is usually a treatment without any side effects, as hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance. Finally, hyaluronic acid can also be used in connection with ailments such as so-called dry eyes.

Who benefits from hyaluronic acid?

It's quite simple. Everyone has it! This applies to both the young and the elderly. Men and women. However, it is especially people who are slightly older and who suffer from thin and dry skin without much elasticity. In such cases, hyaluronic acid can help to improve the condition of the skin.
