It’s July, and we are officially entering the heart of summer. We’ve switched to iced coffee, lemonade, and keeping extra bottles of water in the cooler. We’re spending more Saturdays by the pool, and indulging ourselves in every possible way to stay cool and hydrated. So, why do we forget about our skin? With the skin being the largest organ of the body, it’s crucial that it stays nourished all year round. The best way to keep your skin soft, supple, and moist during the summer (and to keep that dewy glow all year round!) is through the use of Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that acts as a lubricant for the skin and joints. The use of HA in skin care is primarily praised for its ability to lock in moisture and hydrate the skin, which also aids in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. In other words, it keeps your skin glowing, young, and vibrant.
