The skin is your body’s largest organ. It also does a good job of giving away the secrets of what’s going on inside your body (and your life!). Maybe you’re feeling tense about a work deadline, the change of seasons from bone-dry cold to the warmth of spring is wreaking havoc on your skin, or perhaps you just had (another!) birthday. Whatever the case, your skin is a good thermostat of how well you’re generally coping with life.
But while there’s a lot about the external environment that’s out of your control, you can give your skin a much-needed boost by being scrupulous about which powerhouse ingredients feature prominently in your skincare and being mindful that they have been formulated to maximize results.
Hyaluronic acid is one of those powerhouse ingredients.
Hyaluronic Acid: The Key to Flawless Skin
While it may sound like something you would find in a lab, don’t be fooled—Hyaluronic acid is not only the key to achieving your most flawless skin, it’s actually naturally occurring in your body. Here’s the 4-1-1 on this water-loving molecule:
- It Acts Like a Sprinkler
By binding to water, Hyaluronic acid acts as the sprinkler that always keeps your skin hydrated which is an essential component of healthy-looking skin. It has the added bonus of keeping skin plump and hydrated since it can retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin—making it an excellent moisturizer.
- Your Body Produces It Naturally
While Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by your body, one-third of that gets degraded and synthesized on a daily basis due to stress and environmental factors. You also produce less and less as you age.
- Plays Well With Other Ingredients
Hyaluronic acid partners well with other active skincare ingredients and, in some cases, particular pairings (your cheat sheet is below!) have a synergistic effect on one another thereby amplifying the benefits of both ingredients.
OK, So Which Co-Ingredients Work Best With It?
Of course, no single ingredient is the answer to all your skincare woes. That’s why you need to look for products that have been specifically formulated with other powerful co-ingredients to amplify your results. It means what you’re absorbing packs an even bigger skin rejuvenating punch. Here’s what we made sure every product in our new Rewind & Renew CBD Skincare Collection included:
