Hyaluronic acid, is a fascinating sugar-like substance and a natural component of the skin’s lower layers, that can hold thousands of times its weight in water! This gives it some notable anti-wrinkle effects and its presence allows the skin to be strong and flexible
Unfortunately, HA in topical products is more sizzle than steak. The epidermal upper layer repels hyaluronic acid at best you’ll get some superficial softening of the dead skin cell surface
The best way to take advantage of HA’s skin health effects is to eat it. Hyaluronic acid is found veggies including asparagus, avocados, broccoli, and soy. It’s also abundantly concentrated in animal tissue and readily dissolved in soups made with bones and cartilage. You can also use HA capsules, which are readily available and inexpensive. You don’t need much; many people notice skin firming anti-aging and healing benefits by using 200-400 mg a day.
