But what exactly is this star ingredient? And how does hyaluronic acid work? Read on to learn more about the different benefits of hyaluronic acid for the skin and some of the best hyaluronic acid skincare products for all skin types.

• What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that is naturally found in your body. Known to hold up to 1000x its weight in water, hyaluronic acid helps your body retain its moisture levels. This keeps your skin feeling hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid is a major component of the dermis and hydrates our skin to keep it youthful and glowing for longer. Apart from skin hydration, hyaluronic acid also keeps your joints and tissues well lubricated. Hyaluronic acid not only retains the moisture in your skin but also prevents the moisture from evaporating. Hyaluronic acid is also a very powerful humectant, meaning it a compound that attracts and binds water. This, in turn, helps hydrate the skin by drawing water from the deeper epidermis and dermis layers of the skin or by absorbing water from the air if the humidity is high.

As you grow older, the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid levels in the skin start to deplete. This is one of the reasons why your skin starts feeling duller, drier, and less firm as you age. Hyaluronic acid skincare products, capsules, and fillers are some ways in which you can boost your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels when you are older. But before you start stocking up your bathroom shelf with the different types of hyaluronic acid skincare products, read on to know more about some of the best benefits of hyaluronic acid for the skin.

Hyaluronic acid boosts your skin’s moisture retention and makes it appear youthful, glowy, and naturally radiant. Keeping your skin hydrated and plump is also an easy way to keep the signs of ageing at bay.
o Hyaluronic acid fights fine lines and wrinkles – By retaining moisture in the skin, the hyaluronic acid keeps your skin feeling plump and tight, thus reducing the appearance and depth of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is often used in anti-ageing skincare products to address visible wrinkles and improve your skin’s elasticity.
o Hyaluronic acid helps brighten dull skin – Skin that is dry and dehydrated often appears tired and textured. Skin that has a lot of irregularities and texture does not reflect light uniformly, making it look dull and lacklustre. By plumping your skin with water, hyaluronic acid acts like a dull and ageing skin treatment that smoothens the skin’s surface. This brightens your skin’s appearance and makes it look more radiant.
