Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in topical beauty products, such as moisturizers and makeup, as well. One of the substance's features is that it draws moisture from the air and is said to hold up to 1, 000 times its weight in water.
Picture your dermis, that layer if inner tissue beneath the surface (or epidermis) of your skin, as a sponge. The solid parts of that sponge are the collagen and elastin fibres that form the supporting matrix of the skin, and the spaces within the sponge are where the skin’s gel-like hyaluronic acid sits. Obviously, if you can pack those spaces with more water-rich hyaluronic acid your skin will have a fuller, firmer, more youthful appearance.
