Effects of Hyaluronic Acid
1. Provides moisture to the skin 2. Tissue regeneration function
Hello, I am Jinny, a pharmacist.
In the dry winter months, many people are worried about their skin turning white, right? Winter is a season when more moisturizing is needed due to the cold, dry air. Moisture is lost due to dry air, cold, indoor heating, etc., resulting in dry skin. Because skin moisture loss and skin aging are closely related, moisturizing care is very important to improve it.
The ingredient we will introduce today is hyaluronic acid, a key ingredient related to skin moisture. The most important characteristics of hyaluronic acid are moisture adhesion and retention ability. Hyaluronic acid binds to moisture 1000 times its weight, controlling skin barrier function and improving moisture at the same time.
1. Provides Moisture to the Skin
According to a paper published in 2014, consuming hyaluronic acid increases hyaluronic acid synthesis in the skin and promotes cell proliferation in fibroblasts. Through this effect, hyaluronic acid supplies moisture to the skin and moisturizes dry skin.

2. Tissue Regeneration Function
In addition, hyaluronic acid, the main component of the extracellular matrix, is known to play a key role in the tissue regeneration process. Hyaluronic acid participates in inflammation, cell migration, and blood vessel formation, which are key stages of wound healing, and plays a tissue regenerative function.
If dryness hasn't been resolved with expensive cosmetics, why not take care of your skin from the inside this winter?
I hope you have a healthy day both physically and mentally. This was Jinny.
