Get to Know Hyaluronic Acid
If a product containing the word “acid” sounds like something you most definitely wouldn’t want to put on your skin, think again. Not all acids are abrasive; in fact, hyaluronic acid should be at the top of your list on the quest for plump, hydrated skin. If you’re unfamiliar — we’ve outlined the benefits of the beloved hydrating molecule below.
It’s extremely powerful.
Hyaluronic acid holds 1000x its weight in water, helping to retain moisture in your skin and prevent moisture from evaporating. Think of it as a magnet for hydration in your skin — it wants to attract and hold as much as possible.
It’s already a part of you.
The molecule is found naturally in your body (similar to methylsulfonylmethane,) As we age, the amount of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid in our body decreases, but there are (thankfully!) many ways to incorporate it back into your body.
It’s not just topical.
This miracle ingredient can be used topically, ingested, and injected into skin. Aside from using hyaluronic acid on your skin, we recommend incorporating it as part of your inner beauty glow-up. HUM Nutrition’s Glow Sweet Glow gummies include hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.
