Young skin is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. HA is produced naturally in each cell of the body, however, it is in its greatest concentration in the tissues of the skin. It is found in the dermal layers and also the top epidermal layer of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water, which is the reason it is regularly alluded to as the body’s inner moisturizing lotion
With age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid and fine lines start to appear. Some lines become wrinkles due to external factors like sun exposure, diet and years of facial muscle movement. Fat loss and sagging may turn lines into folds.
