We’re big on skincare at Nuvadermis. In fact, we’re basically experts on the topic.
But we know that not everyone understands skincare the same way we do.
In fact, most people would probably admit that they don’t really know what most of the ingredients in their favorite skincare products and beauty creams actually do.
We’re hoping to help solve that problem (and have some fun doing it) with Skincare Spotlight.
In this series of blog posts, we’ll answer your burning questions about the ingredients in your skincare products, starting with hyaluronic acid.
There has been a growing interest in Hyaluronic acid in recent years, with many beauty brands (including us!) using it in their products.
Let’s get started!
What is hyaluronic acid?
Like many ingredients found in Nuvadermis scar and skin care products, hyaluronic acid is totally natural and produced by our own bodies.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in our eyes and joints, where it does the important job of providing cushioning and lubrication for body parts that slide and move against each other.
This helpful substance can now be produced outside of our bodies, which is fantastic news for our skin.
Most dermatologists agree that using hyaluronic acid on our skin and even consuming it can yield some amazing benefits for our skin and overall health.
How do you use hyaluronic acid?
There are actually several ways to take hyaluronic acid. It can be injected, taken in pill form, and even put into eye drops to treat dry eyes.
The simplest and most popular way to start using hyaluronic acid is to apply it to your skin using a topical product like a skin cream or serum.
Does hyaluronic acid help to heal scars?
At Nuvadermis, we’re passionate about healing scars. Our customers trust us to provide them with products that will quickly and effectively heal their wounds while minimizing the appearance of scars. It’s safe to say that we know scar care.
So, does hyaluronic acid heal scars? Well, it’s a bit complicated.
While these products are amazing at renewing your skin and fighting fine lines and wrinkles, there isn’t currently any research that proves they heal existing scars.
What they can do is help prevent new scars from forming because they encourage cell renewal and keep your skin balanced. Essentially, the faster your skin can heal, the less likely it is to scar.
So, if you’re dealing with a breakout, applying a product that contains hyaluronic acid may speed up recovery and reduce the possibility of scarring. At the very least it can help you achieve and maintain clear, beautiful skin.
How does hyaluronic acid help with wrinkles?
Wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of aging, but keeping your skin in balance is a great way to slow the signs of aging.
The same properties that make hyaluronic acid a great hydrator and lubricator for your eyes are the same ones that work to keep your skin moisturized.
Hyaluronic acid also improves the flexibility of your skin, allowing it to stretch and flex without developing fine lines.
Applying a product with hyaluronic acid around your eyes, on your forehead, and the other expressive areas of your face is a great way to maintain youthful skin.
