Hyaluronic Acid is an increasingly popular skin plumping ingredient used in many anti-aging skin care products. Just what is so great about this particular ingredient, you may be wondering? Well, for starters, it sure beats going in for botox injections – although it is found in injectables as well – and it works just as well. Also, it is a naturally occurring component found within our own skin – however, as we age, our levels decrease, and wrinkles and lines have a way of sneaking in and forming. Below, Lionesse would like to detail some more of the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid and what it can do for you and your skin.

Aside from those, it plumps out the skin – and when you have wrinkles and fine lines, it can be just the thing you need to restore your skin’s luster and help the skin to appear more beautiful and youthful. This component is one of those which in charge of capturing moisture and retaining water within the skin, therefore making your moisturizing products more effective.
As a side note, when reading the ingredient list on the side of a product bottle, be sure to look for this ingredient near the top of the list. The closer it is to the top of the ingredients list, the more potent the amount of the ingredient is within the product.

There are creams, serums, and injectable skin care products in which Hyaluronic Acid can be found in. Some of these products are on the high end spectrum, and will cost a significant amount more than those which are not.
